I have used psyllium husks for years to keep myself regular. It helps with both constipation and diarrhea, so it's a lifesaver for those with IBS, or who are taking meds that give diarrhea. I like to mix it into yogurt and smoothies, or even use it in low carb baking as a bulking/binding agent. Just mixing it with water and drinking it is pretty gross, it's better to mix it with juice or something flavorful.
PS. I forgot to add that one should take this with plenty of fluids or else you'll be stopped up. So like drink a glass of water after you eat your yogurt/husk mixture.
I'll keep it 100; if you get the powder it tastes horrible. HORRIBLE! But it gets your plumbing clean. Try to hunt down the capsule form (OR buy capsules from GNC or Wholefoods and fill them).
They have a stronger version with the green label. The green label will have you going, so stay close to a private bathroom (you don't want to do this at work or the gym). The red label is gentler and just feels like you had a really good poop (TMI, but that's the best way to describe it).
It should start working within an hour of drinking it. The green label works within 10-15 mins and involves some cramping.
