            For lowering cholesterol, use in connection with alternate day fasting, or as an effective approach to IBS, psyllium husks do the job. I take a lot:5 tablespoons every other day, on my fast days.

                  I used this a lot in South Asia. It's great for fiber, but can be used in many ways. Mixing it with a warm beverage will relieve constipation, while mixing it with a cold beverage will help with the runs.

                  For daily fiber, agree with Jean-Pierre D's method of taking it: dump a capful in your mouth (don't chew it, don't think about it, don't try to move it around in your mouth), and immediate drink a full glass of water (at least) to chase it down. I use a straw for the water as it pushes it down quickly and it's easier to handle because your mouth will be very full.

                    I use this with my Protein Powder daily for about 9 months. It is easy on my stomach and has not created any problems so far. My last blood treat my total cholesterol and LDL was down. If the cholesterol level stays the same for two years, then I know it is the Psyllium Husk.

                        Awesome product but as some have mentioned, it can be thick and not mix well. I use it in my post workout smoothie and mix it in a blender. Works great when blended in that way. Gentle action and an easy way to add fiber.

                                This is a great product to use to keep you colons clean. The most effective method I use is to place 2 Tbsp inside a cough syrup cap dump it into my mouth and drink water behind it. It's not a laxative so don't get confused about "having the run-offs". It's also a product you should use daily.

                                ***In my experience if you put these husks into water and attempt to drink it you will surely gag and possibly regurgitate. You could put it in a smoothie; however, my method is much better it gets down very quickly.

                                            Well, if you are reading this then you probably already know about the importance of fiber. Yerba Prima psyllium husks are the gold standard of psyllium husks. A couple of tablespoons in my morning protein drink and it is smooth sailing for my colon. Yes, I have used other brands, but the quality of those is always variable.

                                                My husband and I each take 2 heaping tablespoons of the Psyllium Husks in 16 ounces of water followed by another 16 ounces of water twice a day. Not only do we get our fiber in but our water too! We are definately reaping the rewards!

                                                    How much fiber do you get in each serving?
                                                    A Vitamin Shoppe customer on Jun 10, 2014
                                                    Best Answer: You get about 4.5 to 5 grams of fiber per tablespoon. I take a heaping teaspoon so it's like about 5 to 6 grams. Hope this helps. There's a page on my site that I wrote that talks about the benefits of fiber on womens-fitness-tips called fiber-and-weight-loss

                                                    Is there a taste to the product when blending with plain water? Does it contain aspartame?

                                                    Best Answer: Hi Anisha, there is absolutely no taste to this product when blended with water. And it contains nothing except the whole psyllium husk. I love this product for adding extra fiber into my diet. I take it every single morning on an empty stomach, and it works fantastic!

                                                    Best Answer: I am a paraplegic and my doctor ordered me to take psyllium
                                                    over 25 years ago and I have faithfully done it.
                                                    It makes me somewhat regular for sure, and probably has other benefits that I cannot measure.

                                                    Is this product effective on stimulating the appetite?

                                                    Best Answer: I don't think so. If anything, it should help you feel full. It swells in the stomach/intestine and adds fiber to your diet.

                                                    can this product be used whole in hot cereal, with a large glass of water being consumed after the cereal?? would like to hear if this is a possibility for folks using this product...thank you...

                                                    Best Answer: I think you can answer this best yourself by putting some in a glass of water and letting it sit for 10 minutes or so then checking out the consistency. I have used this product for years and love it but it does become gelatinous if allowed to sit and I am going to guess that with the addition of heat, it would quickly become a bit gooey for your cereal. That being said, I think you could get away with adding a very VERY small amount to hot cereal and be okay. But my best advice is just to use it as recommended on the package.
