Some side effects

Posted by iHerb Customer on Jan 06, 2011 | Verified Purchase

An entire scoop is too stimulating so I mix it with water and drink it in smaller doses. Also, this seems to be causing diarrhea (I normally have chronic constipation). Seems to help moods though and supposed to be good for detoxification so I will keep taking at least until I finish the bottle.

Thanks for your feedback!

Anxiety and heart palpitations

Posted by iHerb Customer on Nov 21, 2010 | Verified Purchase

I experienced side effects to some of the ingredients. Possible MSM, ginkgo, licorice, b vitamins... who knows, so many ingredients... Could also be side effects from detox. Or all of the above

Thanks for your feedback!

Tastes like coffee

Posted by iHerb Customer on Jun 08, 2011 | Verified Purchase

Tastes sort of like coffee. I like that it's a standardized extract.

Dry Mouth

Posted by iHerb Customer on Nov 14, 2010 | Verified Purchase

Gave me dry mouth for the first few days. I don't know how common this is, but I confirmed through research that it does happen to some people. Start at a low dose.

Wrong Description! Too much SUGAR!

Posted by iHerb Customer on Oct 22, 2012 | Verified Purchase

The description on iHerb lists the sugar content as 3g per serving, but when I received the container it says there is actually 9g sugar. There is also less fiber and protein than what the iHerb description claims. I went to Nutiva's website and they have the same nutritional values listed as the container I received. However, if you look at the photo of the back of the container on iHerb it says the same thing as the product description on iHerb. I guess I'm going to have to contact Nutiva to find out which is correct. The taste isn't terrible. It actually tastes a little like sesame seeds (not sure if that's a good thing or not).

Thanks for your feedback!

Wrong scoop size

Posted by iHerb Customer on Dec 21, 2010 | Verified Purchase

The container says the scoop is 2 grams yet it measures a teaspoon (4.5-5.0 grams). This is confusing.

Has maltodextrin and sugar!

Posted by iHerb Customer on Nov 27, 2012 | Verified Purchase

I was looking at the nutritional breakdown of this product and plain psyllium and I realized that only 50% of the carbs are fiber whereas the plain psyllium is nearly 100% fiber. The rest is maltodextrin and sugar from the beet powder. Maltodextrin actually has a HIGHER glycemic index than sugar! Which means it's worse than sugar.

Thanks for your feedback!

YUCK!!!!! Very bitter

Posted by iHerb Customer on Oct 11, 2010 | Verified Purchase

Worst tasting thing ever. Extremely BITTER. I suppose you could put it in capsules...

Thanks for your feedback!

Works, but..

Posted by iHerb Customer on Nov 29, 2010 | Verified Purchase

The directions say you should take it an hour after a meal. I tried that and it didn't work because my reflux was already too bad. Now I take it at the first sign of heartburn and that helps. I also chew up fennel seeds right before I take the lozenge so it's probably a combination of things.

Thanks for your feedback!

Very Hard Stools

Posted by iHerb Customer on Nov 14, 2010 | Verified Purchase

Made my stools too hard. I'm still giving it 5 stars since others might have the opposite problem

Thanks for your feedback!
