Yerba Prima developed Psyllium Husks formulations to provide the highest cleansing activity of all fibers. Psyllium Husks formulations help to promote regularity and are 4-8 times stronger than oat bran. Psyllium husks are a concentrated source of natural dietary fiber.
A daily fiber intake of at least 25 grams is recommended for good health, but on average people consume only 10 to 15 grams.
Warnings: Do not take capsules if you have difficulty in swallowing. A very small percentage of individuals, particularly health care providers who have been occupationally exposed to psyllium dust, may develop a sensitivity to psyllium. This sensitivity may result in an allergic reaction. If you experience a strong reaction, with difficulty in swallowing or breathing after taking this product, seek immediate medical attention.
Keep out of the reach of children.
Notes: For products with only psyllium husks, the USP requires a minimum of 40 ml/g swell volume, a measure of how absorbent the fiber is. Yerba Prima Psyllium Husks Vegicaps® far exceed the standard with a normal swell volume of 50 to 65 ml/g, which means that it is absorbing 50 to 65 times its weight in liquid and waste materials as it passes through the digestive system.
Recommended Use: Start by taking 1 serving each day. Gradually increase to 3 servings per day as needed. Swallow one capsule at a time. Take each serving with at leat 8 ounces (a full glass) of water or other fluid. Drinking additional liquid is helpful. If minor gas or bloating occurs, reduce the amount you take until your system adjusts.
