    I have taken about everything you can buy for losing weight. I did not buy this product for that but after about three weeks....the results were amazing!!! My energy level went up the roof and after three weeks...with of course sensible meals, I have lost a total of 15 pounds....Remember...I have bought alot of supplements and some did show some results but not like the psyllium husks. I read alot of people having problems drinking it down so I take mine(10 grams am...10 grams pm) with 100 percent cranberry juice! I always have tried to eat right and still do but never obtained the results I was looking for. This product is truly amazing!!!! Along with the digestive enzymes..it will help you with your goal but you must put some effort. I will always recommend Vitamin Shoppe products...and no they have not given me or paid me to say this....Thanks again Vitamin Shoppe!!!

    I've taken psyllium with juice in the morning for over a year. I've had alot of success with the item. This product has a good price, but I've honestly had much more success with another brand. This particular product clumps together very easily for some reason (I did not have that experience with the other brand). This makes it very hard to consume.

      Comments about the Vitamin Shoppe Psyllium Husks Powder - 12 Ounces Powder:

      My husband and I have used this product for over 8 years. We have used it daily and have been very happy with it. We order 10-12 at a time. Upon receiving this latest shipment, the product had changed drastically. It is finer and more like dirt, and doesn't mix well at all. I called and all they could tell me was that Vitamin Shoppe had started using a different manufacturer, but that it 'should be the same.' Well, it is definitely NOT the same, and unfortunately by the time we found this our and started on our 'new' batch, we could no longer return it. We are now stuck with 12 containers of I'm not sure what. Unfortunately, I am now looking for a different provider, and am sad to leave Vitamin Shoppe. Do not buy this.

        • Add safe and predictable fiber to your diet
        • Bulk up to assist in dieting

        Comments about the Vitamin Shoppe Psyllium Husks Powder - 12 Ounces Powder:

        The same stuff as the active ingredient in metamucil, but if you are dieting, you soon realize that metamucil is basically sugar, orange tang and a little fiber. Filled with useless calories. Jeez.
        I buy sugar free drink mix packets in the supermarket- pomegranate iced tea flavor or something like that. One packet of that goes into a tub of this and shaken to mix thoroughly with the fiber powder, gives it a nice flavor and no added calories. Otherwise, it is flavorless.
        I use a shaker (that you'd use to mix a protein drink) to shake a heaping tablespoon of this with about 8-10 oz of water. You have to drink it fast, it thickens quickly. I eat an appropriate meal (from a calories and nutrition perspective), then drink a glass of this after. This thickens in my stomach and makes me feel full, but not at all uncomfortably. I'll sometimes mix it with a scoop of Vega protein powder and water as a 150 calorie meal replacement. Now I have the correct calories and nutrition in my stomach and feel satiated and satisfied. It slows the absorption of carbs lowering the glycemic load of your meal so your blood sugar and energy stay nice and even. This is an indispensable diet aid for me. This in addition to the fact that it cleans you out gently and properly. 3 servings a day and I'm right as rain and lose weight quickly, safely and predictably without hunger pangs. When I'm not dieting, one scoop after dinner helps keep me clean inside. Vitamin Shoppe has the best price anywhere on this product and it is consistent and reliable.

        Comments about the Vitamin Shoppe Psyllium Husks Powder - 12 Ounces Powder:

        This product works very well! I read reviews that people had a hard time mixing the powder. I take 8 ounces of medium pulp orange juice, 1 tsp of the powder and mix it with a wisk. If you use the wisk to mix it up it is very drinkable and you don't taste anything but orange juice. I hope this review helps someone.

        Comments about the Vitamin Shoppe Psyllium Husks Powder - 12 Ounces Powder:

        We had used this regular late for a couple of years and were very pleased with it. The last time we ordered, we received something that was billed as the same product but was obviously very different. It was darker, finer and had a strong scent. Agree with John that it does not mix as well. Something has definitely changed. We will not be buying this again. We returned what we bought Too bad, because the original was a good value and a great alternative to the stuff out there with all of the additives.

        I have been using this for a couple years and it has recently changed. Used to have a little coarseness to it and would mix well with juice. Now it is a very fine powder and a darker tan color. Does not mix well at all.

          Comments about the Vitamin Shoppe Psyllium Husks Powder - 12 Ounces Powder:

          I have been trying to find a good fiber supplement to take on a daily basis as I need it because I suffer from IBS. I use to take a Nopal flaxseed mix that worked great. But found out the reason why it worked so good is because it had Sena Leaf in it. My Dr. Told me that Sena Leaf is a stimulant and can cause problems in the colon, intestines and make you body dependent on Sena. So I gave the VS psyllium power a try as I've heard psyllium works great for regularity. I followed directions and put one small spoonful into a glass cup then added room temperature water about 12 ounces. I stirred it up to mix the powder and in about eight to ten seconds this stuff turned into the consistency of very thick oatmeal. I couldn't even drink it. I tried it again with less power and more water. Was able to drink a little but it turned into oatmeal once again. Maybe the original recipe did not do this. But this new stuff does.

                    I've been using VS Psyllium husk powder for over 10 years. It keeps me regular and there is nothing added, which is a big bonus. I've read reviewer complaints about it clumping. I have found that if you mix it with cold liquid, it clumps and does NOT mix together.
                    I mix mine with room temp water, shake, then add fruit juice from the fridge. This is a very predictable product and there is ONLY 1 ingredient, the one you want.

                      I used to use a product called Medibulk by Thorne Research, which they stopped making and put out a fiber that is much more expensive. I love extra fiber in at least one protein shake daily for all the known health benefits. This product is my new go-to, thanks Vitamin Shoppe!

                      I put this in my proteins shakes. If I drink it right away everything is fine, but if I let it sit for about an hour it gets extremely thick and clumpy. It also has a strange cardboard type taste after it sits for awhile. I haven't noticed any more movements after using this product. I have been using Benefiber before this which I have no issues with.

                            I use psyllium several times a week to keep my hemorrhoids at bay. I mix it in water in the morning and drink it along with my vitamins. Works wonders with lots of natural fiber that's needed to help get rid of hemorrhoids that my doctor recommended. I try to eat lots of vegetables too, but they don't seem to be enough to work like the psyllium does.

                            I've taken psyllium with juice in the morning for over a year. I've had alot of success with the item. This product has a good price, but I've honestly had much more success with another brand. This particular product clumps together very easily for some reason (I did not have that experience with the other brand). This makes it very hard to consume.

                                  This product works great,and I use one tbsp in a smoothie each morning. In the smoothie I also have a tbsp of the Acacia powder, 2 tbsp rice protein powder, 2 tbsp ground flax seed, one cup pineapple tidbits, a handfull of spinach, and water. It's probably about 350 calories, I buy all my supplement products from the Vitamin Shoppe and trust their product standards. I can't find anything that is not so great about it.

                                      I use Psyllium Husks Powder every day because of my sluggish bowel. It works amazingly well, like a natural clean out system. I prefer the powdered psyllium because it is smooth and not rough or harsh like the seed version. Also mixes easier. I mix a heaping teaspoon into 8 to 10 oz. of water, stir and let sit for half a minute until it thickens up a bit (works best this way). Many people do not like taking it, but the benefits far outweigh all. I call it liquid bread that works better than any other fiber source.

                                          I use psyllium powder everyday to keep me regular. I don't want sugar or artificial sweeteners in it, which is what you find in products on store shelves. This product is perfect and less expensive than the store products. I mix it with whey powder and cinnamon to make my morning drink/breakfast. You do need to shake it well then drink immediately before it thickens too much.

                                              Use one tsp. 3x per day. Controls IBS for me. I like the pure product. Metamucil requires 3T per day to do the same thing. Of course how else are you gonna get all that sucrose, artificial color and artificial flavor down? The taste? I read about others complaining but really what would you expect psyllium husks to taste like? Actually the taste is quite mild and similar to raw mushrooms. It would be great if it mixed more readily but I guess you can't have it all.

                                                I mix this with warm water and some cinnamon, and then add a splash of almond milk and eat it before breakfast daily. It is great to keep your digestive system in order.

                                                    Tried this as an alternative to the vitamin shoppe whole husk product to save a few dollars but it does not mix well. The product clumps together and will not disperse no matter how much you stir it. Will return to the whole husks because they work fine and mixing is easier.

                                                    When on a high protein diet, you need extra fiber. This product is a great value. I mix in with my protein shakes and it gives it some bulk like a thick milkshake.

                                                      I usually use Metamucil. I wanted to try this product since it has no added preservatives, sweetener or color. Well, the taste and the texture reflect this. It tastes pretty bad! It's been only a week, and I don't see any improvement in the product's performance. Will force the rest of this container down, but most likely will be looking for another healthy option.

Some people do not like the taste/thickness of the product; but I mix 4oz of orange juice and drink it fast and follow by 8 oz. of water immediately, EVERY NIGHT......even while on a cruise:)

                                                      Best Answer: No there is not; however, I put it in juice which works really well. You must have to mix and drink immediately because it gets quite thick otherwise

                                                      Does anyone know if this powder works as well as Jay Robb's? Every other husk powder I've tried turns my bread purplish/blue and not nearly as fluffy.

                                                      Best Answer: Yes, this one turns purple too. I haven't used Jay Robbs powder so not sure about the fluffiness. I would say the bread I make with this brand is not very fluffy. The only one I used that did not turn purple was a whole husk variety. This one is more a powder.
