Helps me to maintain my digestive system and to drink more water, too. Nothing special about this particular product as you can buy it so many other places but the price is super here! :) It could have been better if you had a version with more fine powder with added taste (f.eks. lemon) - then it could actually taste good making it more attractive to people having a hard time swallowing this. Other wise, an advice to others is to add half a teaspoon of MP's flavoring powder - tropical storm is superb!

Just used these for first time tonight, made the mistake of pre mixing in with my protein shake as the husks have soaked up the liquid and its turned into a odd tasting slime... Not the most enjoyable texture. But mixed in with porridge/cereal i can imagine they would be much better! Will have to wait n see if I see results!

100% works!

What a god send this was, I was getting regularly constipated and desperately needed a quality source of added fiber to my diet. Since I already take shakes, the easiest thing for me to get was a powder form so I could add it to my shakes. It doesn't effect the taste at all, just adds a few more bits (just like a smoothie!). The product really has helped me pass stools through regularly and comfortably, all at a great price! Can't recommend this enough to anybody, even if you aren't constipated, it really will help all round.

Very good

Maybe you're finding hitting your fibre target to be a challenge - especially if you're also trying to take in a significant amount of protein too whilst keeping the calories down - or maybe you suffer from bowel problems in general? Fear not - this stuff is the business. Two tablespoons mixed with one scoop of whey and milk in a shaker and you will barely notice the stuff going down, but boy will you notice the results. All you need to do is note the following: i.) Don't hang about - once you've added the liquid and done the necessary mixing, get this stuff down the hatch pronto, otherwise it will end up absorbing all of the liquid in the container and form a thick, inedible gel. ii.) Go easy at first - if you haven't got a naturally high fiber diet, don't hit this stuff too much too soon, otherwise severe stomach cramping will ensue. Start at one teaspoon, and work up to two or three tablespoons per serving. iii.) Increase your water intake - the same guidance for any other fiber product on the planet, up your water intake by a few glasses a day if you're taking this regularly. And that's it - fantastic product, fantastic price.

I tried Whole Psyllium Husks after being recommended it in a fitness blog about losing weight due to removing waste food in your gut. Don't know if that works or not, but since I've been taking this I've lost 3lb. In any case, they are a good source of fibre. I've not had to drink anymore (it advises you to make sure you're well hydrated). But if you're concerned enough about your fitness to buy these, you're going to be aware of making sure you drink enough. They don't really taste of much but they don't really dissolve so I didn't like them just in water. Added to a shake and they're no problem at all.

Can't fault the product.. helps to provide additional fibre to a lacking diet, which helps prevent constipation and provides a regular stool frequency As the product sits in your gut/bowels etc the husks suck up the water like a sponge, helping to clean out your internal system too. See how the grains swell up in your glass of water if you leave it a while.. and see the difference. So make sure you take on plenty of fluids with this product!

A must for Bowel problems

I tried Whole Psyllium Husks after having being diagnosed with Bile Acid Malabsorption, and had either chronic Diarrhea or severe Constipation with excrutiating pain due to the Bile Acids. Having been prescribed Colestryramine which mops up the Acids it has the side effect of Constipation. Once I started on the Husks the results/relief was very rapid. I can't praise this product enough and take it twice everyday. I couldn't live without it as it allows me to function normally every day. It doesn't taste very nice when mixed with water but that's a very small price to pay for the superb results I get from it. Anyone suffering my condition or IBS should get this product. I promise you it is fantastic!

WHERES THIS BEEN DURING MY CUTTING CYCLE

Just added about 1.5g Whole Psyllium Husks into my protein shake under the pretense that this would just help me go to the loo more regularly which you know is .. not as regular when you're cutting! I was literally starving before my protein shake (just mixed with water) and then 5 minutes later was wondering why I was sitting here with a full stomach. I researched it and realised the husks actually expand in your stomach and is widely used to hinder appetite... while cleaning out your guts! It kind of sucks because I took it in my pre-workout and now my stomach feels heavy! So I would not recommend that! I would definitely recommend this product to everyone ever!

BUY IT

If you have IBS, Crohns, or any kind of bowel issues, buy this now. Thanks to the Whole Psyllium Husks I can make regular, fully formed bowel movements. This has enabled me to get a job and walk around with peace of mind. I cannot stress enough how important getting the right amount of fibre in your diet is. Get too much and you will have issues, but not enough and it will be worse. Myprotein has high quality stuff at what seems to be the lowest price in the UK so I recommend it without hesitation to anyone. It mixes about as well as a fibre supplement possibly can, and they've managed to dull the taste so it doesn't interfere with whatever you mix it with. Also, first class service, fast delivery and the genius innovation of making powder supplement packaging that actually seals shut and stays that way without springing open unlike some companies which shall remain nameless.

I've been drinking non-soluble fibre husks for a while. I used to suffer from various stomach issues. Originally I did find them quite hard to swallow, nowadays I can swallow them with some difficulty using clear water, but generally I'll add fruit juice or a cordial. Compared to other fibre products, husks actually work for me. I haven't found a better price than on Myprotein for them, and also the quality seems a lot higher. I can also buy it in bulk, which makes it easier.

Psyllium Husk

Psyllium husk mixed only with water - horrible (better mixed with cordial). However, add a scoop or two to vanilla protein base (or any other flavour), not only do you not taste the husk but it acts as a thickening agent - perfect. Add crushed ice, husk and vanilla powder with fresh espresso and blend and you've got yourself a frap'! It's great for fibre bulking of the bowel, keeps a regular bowel action. Word of warning: do not mix husk with boiling water as it turns into a mucous viscosity. Great value, delivery is always prompt and great fibre product, especially if you have a wheat/gluten allergy/intolerance.

Big nice s***s

I've had trouble having decent and regular bowel movements for quite sometime, doctors have prescribed me laxatives on two occasions. I searched 'Myprotein' for fibre, I didn't want to take a laxative again. This stuff works, unbelievably well, people mention that you get a 'flush' well, that was quite a treat! If you're on a super high protein diet, I really do recommend this stuff, as it allows everything to get to work down there. I've also noticed because of it, a huge increase in the amount I am able to eat, which is great as I am currently bulking. It works fast as well, on the first day I took it, my bowel movements were back to how they should be!

I have had loose stomach movements for years, and I actually thought that was normal. I have started using Whole Psyllium Husks and it is excellent, I am having near normal stools. The stool is a different texture due to the fibre. I will continue to use this, 20g in one go per day before my last meal. As for mixing and taste, I rated 5* because this isn't meant to be nice, it is a small price to pay for the results. If you have had protein shakes with oats etc you will find this easy enough.

This stuff is great does exactly what it says on the tin. Also the delivery system and the tracking is absolutely perfect - arrived on the minute - and I live at the back of beyond in rural Aberdeenshire. Everything just works - very confidence inspiring.

This is what i been looking for...

I've had a bad tummy for quite a while now, about 5years. Constantly feel constipated especially when I'm stressed. Have been to the docs and they prescribe medication, which have side effects and overall don't ever really work. Then I came across this and after reading the reviews and seeing the price, i figured its worth a shot. didn't realise that it could have been possibly the best thing i bought this year, (and I've bought a house and a brand new car this year, lol)! I mixed half a large scoop with almost a full shaker of water, and 2 scoops of instant oats. Took a few swigs, and it wasnt bad at all. I was planning on coming to the reviews section and mentioning that all the other people commenting on how it's too gloopy are just moaning, but i left about half of it in the shaker for another 2-3 minutes while I answered a phone call and on returning to it, it was so thick it wouldnt fall out the shaker even if i took the cap off and tipped it upside down. lol. added a bit more water and gave it another shake, and necked the rest of it in one go, was fine. I would say you have to be able to down it because if you cant, and u let it get gloopy it will probably make u choke, i.e clog your esophagus/throat momentarily. Simply mix it with plenty of water though and down it as quick as possible and you will be fine. the gloopyness is not a unwanted side effect of this product, it is the magic behind it... I've been a few times today and each time it was effortless. I did research on this product, and it does seem that the only side effect worth worrying about is choking, but as long as youre aware that this is supposed to happen, but in your stomach/colon not in your mouth or your flask you will be fine. I've taken a similar product called normacol, I say similar because it also sucks water and expands helping you pass more easily. The problem with normacol is that it comes in granules, not much smaller than whole coffee beans and the way you take it is too put a spoonful on your tongue and wash it down with water, twice!. That isnt easy as it sounds, i often coughed and spluttered but I continued with it because like these husks it does work. Problem with Normacol is that it can cause your colon to bloat, literally made me look round.. oh and did also did make me fart allot. These husks dont have that effect. Also the urge to go to the toilet isnt have as desperate as normacol. At times Ive been out on the road etc, and have felt the need to go but without being able to it can be quite uncomfortable/painful, with these husks, I dont have that urgency.. So it gets 5stars for everything (even the mixability because like I said you need to understand that is what its supposed to do, so just neck it quick!! Sorry about the long review but if anyone here had problems like i had (IBS - aka a doctors way of saying I dont know whats wrong with you) then this might just be the thing youre looking for, certainly was for me, beats me why my doctor hasnt suggested it yet! BUY IT!!

Goes Well With:

I mixed it with instant oats. If you find it too gloopy I wouldnt mix it with anything.

"I've been using this stuff for about a week as for a month or so my stomach had been way out, it was just awful. After a week of taking it my stomach is almost completely back to normal. I take about 10g per day. I add the husk to a large glass, normally 3/4 pint of fruit juice such as a supermarket's apple juice, or grapefruit if you like it a little sour. Personally I don't find the taste too negative but I do prefer it in juice to plain water. It is important to drink enough water during the day."

"have to say was not impressed with stuff at all to begin with as i was taking 1.5 grams twice a day and saw almost no effect.. ive upped to to between 3 and 6 grams a time 3-4 times a day (depending on how much protein and fibre im consuming) now i have to say this stuff SERIOUSLY works! fantastic product just a shame the instructions on the pack tell u to use far too little... if you are finding that you movements are slow/painful/straining/hard/dry or all of these then i recommend take more than 1.5 grams, if you consume 150 grams of protein a day id say around 28-35g of fibre will do it.. but remember you get fibre out your grains, fruit and veg so no need to take 35g of husk.. keep a food diary with you protein, carbs, calories and fibre consumption so you can see when ur getting too much or too little, defo help me alot.. this stuff is best taken with meals or right after a meal to avoid the bloated feeling. taste and mixability are not great altho a quick blend does the trick but this is a supplement not at gourmet meal .. nonetheless i found this product to work wonders.. just at the right dose :) thanks "

"I've always had bowel trouble and things didn't get much better when I added protein shakes to my diet (it's hard to reduce carbs but keep enough fibre in your diet), so I tried psyllium. Not only is it really cheap (much cheaper than lactulose!) for a decent sized bag that lasts ages, it really works. I've been using it for a few weeks now and my bowels are now very happy indeed. Wasn't sure of the best way to use it at first, but now have a few tips I thought I'd pass on. If you use a blender, don't blend for too long, it turns the mixture into a gag-inducing foam! Also, I believe psyllium is a good source of fibre because it absorbs water and holds it in the gut, which softens stools. As everyone says, you do need to consume a lot of water with this stuff. I found what works really well is to add a teaspoon to a small glass of water and stir every min or two. Keep it in the glass for at least 5-10 minutes. It eventually absorbs the water and turns to a wallpaper paste consistency and the husks become much softer and less grainy in texture. Then add this to your shake or, if adding to a blender with the rest of your shake or smoothie, blend for no more than 1-2 seconds. I've found by doing this the psyllium is practically unnoticeable!"

I mix it with ~100ml water and superfood xs, down it and follow it with about another pint of water. It does the job well enough for me to continue drinking what feels like a glass of dandruff every morning."

After 3 days of taking them I kept getting bad wind-like pain in my abdomen, After about 30 minutes I felt ""the rush"" I had been warned about coming on. Just got home in time to experience the world falling out of me but ever since then I have had miles better movements, regular and soft (but not runny).

"This stuff works! But it must be taken with plenty of water. Pour a glassful of water (about 200ml) into your shaker, add a small MP scoop or a rounded teaspoonful of the product, close lid, shake very well for 3 seconds and drink as quickly as possible before it starts to thicken. Then drink another glass of water on top. Putting the dry powder into your mouth and washing it down is definitely *not* advisable. If you're also taking creatine you will be drinking plenty of water thoughout the day anyway but if not on creatine then drink lots of water both with this product and during the day; the results are excellent, goodbye constipation. I take it twice a day, with breakfast and with my evening meal so it helps digestion by adding extra fibre. It's a lot heathier for everyone, training or not, to have proper and regular digestive ""throughput"" and this stuff does the trick and does it well. I think it is good that this is a finer powder rather than the whole husks. And it's a lot cheaper than buying ""Fybogel"" at the chemist, which has the same ingredient bulked out with artificial sweetners and colourings so cut out the chemicals, get this stuff instead and do your body a favour."

"Ok, i brought this as i have always suffered with bad stomach . On the reviews here its supposed to help the flow, ease suffering with digestion and generally keep a healthy body. Someone mentioned in the reviews here of the ""flush"" of the system that they got. I have been taking this now for just over a week and at first i didnt get anything. Now im getting the flush. Its pretty disgusting but my stomach is so much better. Ill note the benefits i have received while taking this and also the negative. Benefits: -Irregular bowel movements have gone. I now go every morning. -I suffered with heart burn with some foods like chilli and orange juice. This has now gone completely. (very impressed with this) -Cramps have now gone. - No longer gassy. ( my high protein diet gave me really bad wind, could blow someones syrup of there sweed. -Just generally feeling more comfortable. -Nervous ache (job interviews etc) is less. Negative: - Stools are very smelly. -The flush was a bit of a shock at first which lasted only 1 day but i think a warning should be put on the label that you may have to book a day of sick or holiday when that day comes because all your going to be doing nothing but crap. - Taste, Some people have said its not that bad. But for me even with orange juice it still makes me gag sometimes. All in all i would deffenatly recommend this product. For the cheap price and sense of calmness in my guts its a no brainer really. I would have brought it just for the heartburn cure alone. Dean "

Was pleasantly surprised at the texture of this product and its mixability. When taking other powders I sometimes just scoop some into my mouth then down with water like pills... big mistake doing that with psyllium husks! It stuck to the roof of my mouth and i had to scrub hard to get it off. Mixed in a shake or just mixed properly with water it is a good product though.

"Just finishing up my first half-kilo pouch, and back for more. MP's suggested starting dose is sensibly low since people can react differently to this sort of supplement. I've found that a level 15ml scoop of the powder mixed with plenty of water, taken first thing in the morning works for me. I like to stir it and leave it to stand for about 2 minutes before drinking to ensure it has absorbed some of the water first. The taste is not pleasant though not really unpleasant either, just a bit mushroomy. If you chew it a bit while drinking, there is some grittiness, which I'm surprised no one else has mentioned. These minor negatives just lose half a point in the overall rating though.The important thing is that it gives a comfortable, wind-free digestive system, and happy movements, without any of the harshness, irritation or salt and sugar of high-fibre breakfast cereals.It's great that MP offer psyllium husk in sensible quantities at a good price. Once you've tried it, you'll want to continue using it."

"Firstly I have to say that these things taste like all bran but are totally and utterly un-chewable. So you mix them in a liquid to successfully eat them.They add a nice texture to food, such as porridge or your morning shake and, believe me, they reset your bowel movements. Eating a lot of protein has a side effect of increasing the number of visits to the old throne. Taking this stuff regulates you back to normal and also clears you out. Great stuff these husks and well cheap. Just on the 100g pouch at the mo and they have totally eliminated the 'Flatulence' I was experiencing eating the mybars. If you are having issues with your bowels..etc then I would recommend trying these to see if they help. They did in my case. Just make sure you drink plenty of water as these babies swell up."

The only true way to get a six pack is weight loss, there is no point in doing 600 sit ups if it is hidden behind fat. SO Psyllium husks are good, and here they are relatively cheap (+P&P of course) but don't go overboard, I added so much to my protein shakes I was almost sick as it does not mix in well. The best results I got were from mixing it with soya milk and adding some bran cereal and oats to make a super rich porridge that would fill me up without the empty calories"

"This is quite possibly one of the most underrated, yet most effective supplements out there. No, it won't make you stronger or enhance your performance. But what it will do is ensure that that you have absolutely perfect digestion, every single day, day in, day out. The overwhelming majority of people don't get anywhere near enough dietary fibre from the typical Western diet, and low levels of fibre are linked to an enormous number of digestive and degenerative illnesses. These husks are dirt cheap (especially compared to a certain high-street health food shop that charges an extortionate amount for them), pretty tasteless, a bit like sand (you don't need much of the powder), and will guarantee to keep everything running \""smoothly\"" at all times. They are an absolute no brainer to add to your shakes for additional dietary fibre."
