I take it a few times a day, but I take the organic slippery elm bark powder - about 1 heaping teaspoon in about 2 oz. of water, and then add the VSL#3 probiotics powder to it, and mix it all up well with the back of the spoon smashing it against the plastic cup - and drink it down. It has almost no taste, and it coats the whole digestive tract - to me it's the equivalent of the oral mesalamine products. If you add more water, it's more liquidy, if you add less it's more gel-like. But it does it's job.
I would definitely recommend your trying it.
