        Zero Carbs
        All Natural Fiber Supplement

        Doctors recommend Psyllium Husk fiber for people eating low carb diets. Psyllium Husks are the strongest natural dietary fiber for promoting regularity and supporting heart health. For best results, use daily as long as desired. Yerba Psyllium Husks are gluten free, with no added sweeteners, colors or additives.
        Psyllium husks promote easy, healthy elimination and sweep waste out of the colon more quickly.

      Directions
      Adults and children over 12: 1 rounded teaspoon, 1 to 3 times a day. Children 6-12: 1/2 to 1 level teaspoon, 1 to 3 times a day. Start by taking 1 serving each day. Gradually increase to 3 servings per day if needed. Stir powder briskly into at least 8 ounces (a full glass) of liquid. Juice, water, soy or rice drink, and milk are all good with Psyllium Husks Powder. For easiest mixing, shake in a closed jar. Drink immediately. If product is too thick when consuming, add more liquid and stir. Drinking additional liquid is helpful. If minor gas or bloatingoccurs, reduce the amount you take until your system adjusts.

      Warning
      Do not use this product if printed band around cap or seal under cap is broken or missing. A very small percentage of individuals, particularly health care providers who have been occupationally exposed to psyllium dust, may develop a sensitivity to psyllium. This sensitivity may result in an allergic reaction. If you experience a strong reaction, with difficulty in swallowing or breathing after taking this product, seek immediate medical attention. Keep out of reach of children. Keep tightly closed to protect from humidity.

          (PG rated review) After I had a bout of diverticulitis a few years ago, I was told by my Gastrointestinal guy that I needed this stuff every day. He compared this brand to another popular brand by reading the ingredients. This product does not have the tons of additives that the more well known product has. Now that I have been using this product for years, I really am accustomed to problem free BMs. So if I get too busy for a couple of days and forget, I get instant feedback in the form of plip-plops or BMs so hard they hurt and bring tears to my eyes and I need to plunge like mad and even then they are 3-4 flushers. It's disgusting. This is great stuff! (And the best price I've been able to find.)

          I don't particularly care for this fiber. To me it is a little to bulky and it takes a lot of water to get it down. It is not best to use this in smoothies. I tried and it did not turn well.

          When I notice that I'm having trouble going to the bathroom, I take a spoonful before bed and sometimes the next morning. I find that it mixes better in warm water and I drink it down quickly.

                  I love this. I have used it for years with great results. I had to be on a drug for several months and one of the side effects was constipation and another drug was recommended for that. I chose to keep taking the psyllium husks instead and I never had a problem with constipation. I put a heaping teaspoon in a glass jar and shake it to mix it well and drink it down quickly before it can separate and I have regular bowel movements once or twice a day. You can use juice to make it more flavorful.

                                  Does it help to control your appetite any at all? All I see is that it cleanses your colon.

                                  Best Answer: I have been mixing psyllium husk powder into my morning drink to go with various vitamins and prescriptions for many years. I am an old lady and my colonoscopies have been happily fine. I do find because it is a nice dose of fiber that it helps with appetite. I like to mix it with GoodBelly drink right now because of the probiotics. Between the psillium seed husks and an aloe gel drink i can find balance in an unruly system.

                                  Can it be used in gluten-free baking as substitute for xanthan gum?
                                  A Vitamin Shoppe customer on Feb 26, 2015
                                  Best Answer: Psyllium husk is a fiber that helps to cause movement of the intestines. Xanthan gum Is used as a thickening stabilizer agent.

                                  Depending on what you are making, Substitutes for Xanthan are:

                                  Guar Gum
                                  Chia Seeds
                                  Flaxseed
                                  Arrowroot Powde
                                  Cornstarch
                                  Agar Aga
                                  Gelatin
                                  Locust Bean Gum
                                  Gum Arabic

                                  You can look online to further aid you in the right choice. I hope this was helpful to you.
