Description

Purified Psyllium Husk

For relief of occasional constipation (irregularity). This product generally produces bowel movements in 12 to 72 hours. Several days may be needed to establish regularity. Daily consumption of dietary fiber can offer many health benefits and plays a crucial role in promoting the health of the colon. Dietary fiber provides bulk, eases passage and helps to speed transit time through the digestive tract. It also aids in glucose absorption and may promote healthy cholesterol levels. Experts in the field of health and nutrition agree that adults should consume 25 to 35 grams of dietary fiber every day to maintain good health.

Quality Control Issue
I've had to return Colon Pure 3 or 4 times in the last 2 years. In that time, the texture and consistency of the psyllium is often extremely fine, like confectioners' sugar, which all but destroys the effectiveness of the product. I simply take the containers to my local GNC store and exchange until I have one that is back to the original coarse texture; then it is better than any other brand that I know of. Wake up GNC! You've had an edge on the competition; KEEP IT!

Works For Me
At a very healthy age 70, I need a little help with bulk and consistence. This is the only product that works properly for me. Life is good with this as long as I take it daily without fail.

I live in Australia and I always bulk buy this product when I’m in the USA, I’ve been using it for 15 years and swear by it. I use it in my breakfast shakes, bread making, and use it on my cereals . It’s the most effective product of its type I have ever used and highly recommend it.

The BEST
Having been buying GNC's Colon Pure for so many years, I'd say at least 25, we can vouch that it's an excellent product. It's the only brand I've ever bought.

Unflavored psyllium
I'm pleased to have available unflavored psyllium. Doctors removed my colon completely and recommended using psyllium without citric acid, which is an irritant. Your GNC product dissolves relatively quickly in water. The only draw back is that it is more expensive than products with all the additives (sugar, flavoring, citric acid, etc.), which doesn't seem right!
