Psyllium is a small herbaceous annual plant native to Southern Asia and Europe. It is a convenient way to increase your intake of dietary fiber. Surveys have shown that the fiber content of the American diet is typically about half of the government recommended levels. Psyllium is a bulking agent with a high mucilage content which swells considerably when added to liquid. This bulking action can play an important role in maintaining healthy gastrointestinal functions.
As a dietary supplement, mix 1-2 level tablespoons into at least 12 oz. of water or juice and consume immediately. Be sure to drink plenty of additional fluids throughout the day. Start with smaller amounts and gradually increase over several weeks.
Do not eat freshness packet. Keep in bottle.
Take this product as recommended. Without drinking enough liquid the product may swell in the throat, causing blockage or choking. Avoid use if you have ever had esophageal narrowing or swallowing difficulties.

iHerb Customer Reviews
Better than any fiber I've ever had. Things just are not the same without it. This item is a must have. I suggest beginning like this: week 1 use 1 tblsp & 12oz water. Week 2 use 2 tblsp & 12oz water. Week 3 use 3 tblsp & 12oz of water. I stay with that after the 3rd week.
I have had IBS with prominent diarrhea for many years now. Have been using this for 2 weeks now and have become a huge fan already. It has greatly relieved my symptoms. I would however caution against using this with other fiber products such as All-Bran plus. I used to drink a shake every morning which I made using All-bran plus as a base. Using both gave me extreme flatulence for a few hours a day. Since I was not planning on giving up using psyllium, I quit with the shake and have had no problems since then. I highly recommend this product for anyone with IBS. It has greatly changed my life.
