Using Herbal and Superfood powders on a daily basis is simple, easy and can be really delicious. The simplest way is to rehydrate the powder in a little filtered water to make a shot, this can easily be prepared once, twice or three times per day if you are taking the herbs therapeutically. However sometimes the herbs can be bitter so the botanical powders can be added to a superfood smoothie instead of just water. The smoothie can be made with a base of nut milk, seed milk or non-dairy milk such as rice milk. Alternatively the main body of the smoothie can be created with fruit or vegetable juices.
Additional superfood and herb powders can be added to fortify the smoothie with extra beneficial properties. The powders are largely dissolvable and can be scooped in and then blended, shaken or stirred until fully mixed with the liquid. Any true Superfood smoothie disciple would advise that the list of possibilities is endless with the goal to feel great and potentially replace a meal with this glass of super goodness.

It is very important to drink enough liquid when taking Psyllium husks.
One or two glasses of water or fruit juice should be taken with each dose. Larger doses can be taken for dealing with specific complaints like irritable bowel syndrome.
Whereas stimulant laxatives tend to create an immediate and sometimes violent response, the positive effects of psyllium husks on constipation are usually more gradual. It can take up to a few weeks for a change to be noticed. However, when the change is felt, it is a result of an actual toning of the bowels rather than simply an irritation and purge of them.
1 or 2 teaspoons once or twice a day. It is recommended to start with a lower serving and gradually increase the intake.
1 teaspoon equals 3 grams (1 tsp = 3 g)

In Spring the Psyllium plants are ready to be harvested and dried. The plants are cut before peak maturity in order to save the seed which will be scattered on the wind if left on the plant. Harvested by hand the plants are left outside to dry for a couple of days before being threshed to extract the seed from the main plant. The seeds are then put into vibrating sieves which separates any loose plant material and sand from the seed. The seed is then inspected and any underdeveloped or damaged seed is discarded so that only the best specimens are left. To detatch the precious husk from the seed a grinder is employed before a gravity separator removes any other impurities that might be clinging to the husk. After this process only the husk is left which is then packed in all its raw beauty.
Psyllium husks are very safe and are used by millions of people throughout the world as a natural alternative to chemical laxatives. They are the laxative of choice for children.
Because of the danger of intestinal obstruction, bulk-forming laxatives such as Psyllium Husks should not be taken by individuals with intestinal ulcerations, stenosis, or disabling adhesions.

I have purchased this product many times which shows my satisfaction. I take a tablespoon a day with juice (also 1.5 ltrs water after) and it keeps me regular. A must for people that are constipated.
