Product Overview

Description
  • A Dietary Supplement

At NOW, we believe that good nutrition shouldn’t come at the expense of taste. In addition to our products being good tasting, we strive for our natural food items to be fresh, Non-GMO (when possible) and bursting with the nutrients we need to live at our best. In order to meet our demanding quality control standards, we choose to source our foods from respected farms and growers, using organic ingredients, when possible. We test our foods products for toxic compounds, heavy metals and microbial contamination. At NOW, we believe that natural, high quality whole foods are the best source of nutrition and the best way to support the health of you and your family.

Since 1968 NOW Foods has supplied wholesome, high quality health foods at reasonable prices. In support of NOW’s mission “To provide value in products and services that empower people to lead healthier lives,” these foods are brought to you without unnecessary cost or frills. We truly believe that good health should be affordable. As a family owned and operated business, we offer three generations of honesty, quality, purity and commitment.

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.

Suggested Use

As a dietary supplement, vigorously mix 1 level tablespoon 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.

Consider taking this product in combination with NOW Gr8-Dophilus, Triphala and Detox Support.

Other Ingredients

None.

100% pure. Contains no sugar, salt, starch, yeast, wheat, gluten, corn, soy, milk, egg, shellfish or preservatives. Vegetarian/vegan product.

Great!

Posted by AnnaLL on Apr 25, 2013

I use it to make my own crackers, or "knekkebrød" as we call them in scandinavia. I use 1/2 a cup each of almonds, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds and flax seeds with two tablespoons of the husk powder and a big pinch of salt. Grind in magic bullet or food processor. Mix well with 2 cups of water and let soak for about 15 mins. This is enough for two trays. Use parchment paper on tray and use wet (so it doesn't stick) fingers to flatten. Put in middle of oven for about an hour @ 210 f or 100c.

nice fine texture

Posted by Reviewer2994189 on Mar 12, 2010

this powder is pretty finely ground so it's easy to just mix it in with any drink, nice fine texture is easily blended. great value, good stuff. only complaint is package is not re-sealable so it's best to put it in another container that can be closed.

Just what I had hoped for

Posted by Reviewer1625810 on Apr 24, 2010

Psyllium husk is the active ingredient in products such as Metamusil(tm). This is perfect. Mix a rounded teaspoon it in a bowl of oatmeal as it's cooking, in a shake, or some yogurt or small amount of juice and it goes down easy without added chemicals, dyes, sugar, or artificial sweeteners. It really works to keep your digestion just right. Use if you need a "mover" or if you want a non-chemical, non-drug way to gently give structure to loose stool. As an additional bonus, just like with oat bran, the soluble fiber in psyllium husks binds to cholesterol in your digestive track to lower blood cholesterol levels. My experience with Now Foods over the past couple of decades has been 100% positive. Finally, the price is lower than "Metamusil (tm)" or store brands of the same. I'm thankful to iHerb for offering this.

Simple easy way to get your fiber

Posted by Reviewer1882054 on Feb 07, 2010

I just keep a container of frozen juice concentrate in the freezer and pop a spoonful of concentrate in my glass with a spoon of this powder, and mix it all up. Taste is passable, texture takes a little getting used to. Great results for a healthily functioning digestive system.
