Soluble fiber from foods such as psyllium seed husks, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease. A serving of Whole Psyllium Husks supplies 6 grams of the 7 grams soluble fiber necessary per day to have this effect.
Vigorously mix 1-2 level tablespoons daily 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.

NOTICE: This food should be eaten with at least a full glass of liquid. Eating this product without enough liquid may cause choking. Do not eat this product if you have difficulty swallowing.
While it takes getting used to, while trying to seriously cut back on regular dietary intake, this product helps maintain normal digestive track function.
I've used the 1 lb 'NOW' whole psyllium husks for years. Works well for me, especially when I slowly build up to the desired dosage. I use 2-3 tablespoons once or twice daily. (Not sure why they refer to it as "vegetarian", since by nature all whole psyllium husks are vegetarian! ???)
I buy at least 8-10 lbs per purchase and that lasts for over a year. Bulk Apothecary was the best (recent price) for whole psyllium husks. I do shop around each time I buy and B. A. was, at least this time around, by far the best price going.
I've been using this product for a couple of years. It's a great way to affordably increase my intake of soluble fiber. Two benefits of this product: regularity and reduced cholesterol. I use it every day, and suggest it for those with gastric issues. PS. Bulk Apothecary has the best price for this product (I shop around).
This product is just as good (if not better), than the name brands that I have paid twice as much for.
