Psyllium is a true dietary fiber, even though it is classified by some as a laxative or mucilaginous fiber, and is a convenient way to increase intake of dietary fiber because of its high mucilage content. This bulking agent swells considerably when added to liquid, which can help to support healthy gastrointestinal transit time. This bulking action and healthy transit time can play an important role in maintaining healthy gastrointestinal function.
Each teaspoon (5 mL) contains:
Psyllium (Plantago ovata) (Seed Husks)....................................................1.7 g
Non-Medicinal Ingredients: None.
Dosages: Children 6 - 12 years: Take 2 teaspoons, 3 times daily. 12 years old to Adults: Take 4 teaspoons, 3 times daily.
Directions: Mix each dose into 250 mL (1 cup) of liquid, stir briskly and drink immediately. Produces bowel movement in 12 to 72 hours (3 days).
Consult a health care practitioner if symptoms worsen or if laxative effect does not occur within seven days. Consult a health care practitioner immediately if you experience chest pain, vomiting, or difficulty in swallowing or breathing after taking this product. Consult a health care practitioner prior to use if you are taking medications which inhibit peristaltic movement (e.g. opioids, loperamide) and/or if you have symptoms such as abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting or fever (as these could be signs of abnormal constrictions of the gastrointestinal tract, diseases of the oesophagus and/or the superior opening of the stomach (cardia), potential or existing intestinal blockage, paralysis of the intestine, megacolon, faecal impaction, inflamed bowel or appendicitis). Do not use if you are experiencing a sudden change in bowel habits that has persisted for more than 2 weeks, undiagnosed rectal bleeding, failure to defaecate following the use of another laxative product, if you have diabetes mellitus in which blood sugar is difficult to regulate and/or difficulty swallowing. Hypersensitivity, such as allergy, has been known to occur following inhaled and/or ingested psyllium; in which case, discontinue use. May cause temporary gas and/or bloating.
I like the NOW brand and I usually buy my psyllium husk from this site, especially when it is on sale. Good value, good quality.
The products works well to maintain good health by helping to flush waste products from the body.
Recently purchased in bulk psyllium husk from my local store and it's not near to this one.
One tablespoon in a glass of water every evening keeps you clean.
This is an affordable and effective product though I don't advise drinking it alone with water or juice as the packaging directs. I enjoy it best mixed into my breakfast shakes.
I use this every morning in water with honey and lemon.
Super cleanse product.
Great addition to your nutrition!
Been wanting this for a long time, but couldn't justify buying it until now at Healthy Planet. Good value!
This is a great product. It works for me and I find it is quite affordable.
I add NOW Psyllium Husks to my protein shakes for added fibre and to assist in reducing cholesterol. Am pleased with this product and will continue to purchase!
