I've seen psyllium husk powder postings in here before so I know it's nothing new. I buy the Trader Joe's kind called Secrets of Psyllium. It has no sugar, no starch, no salt, no yeast, no wheat, no preservatives...etc. The main ingredient is "blonde psyllium seed husks" and any other brand is probably the same thing.
I'm working back up to 1 TB every evening. I just put it in about 1/2 cup of almond milk, shake it up and drink it. It tastes a little like a milk shake.
There really is something about it. I quit using it a few months ago, went into a bad flare, got the flu...but now I'm bouncing back. Three days after starting the psyllium again the diarrhea is going away, and things are getting back to normal.
If you try it make sure it's in the evening. It could cause a little more gas at first but it really helps solidify and bind things. I think it's pretty amazing stuff and their is something to it.
