The directions for use on this product are completely inaccurate. You cannot take this product or any fiber product "without water." If you do, it will have the exact opposite effect --- it will badly constipate you. We pointed this out to the company a year ago along with many online medical articles confirming this. However, they are still producing it with false and misleading directions for use, which says something about the company.

Consumers should know that this tincture is not like the normal herbal extract due to the vegetable glycerine added to it, which makes it horribly syrupy and sweet. We found it unpalatable compared with other alcohol-based tinctures without such additives. Alcohol is the best means for extracting the full range of chemical constituents of herbs and has the longest shelf life. There is no reason to add glycerine to an alcohol-based herbal tincture other than to sell more product in a sweet-addicted society.
