    Hey... well I think it was BL who I read mentioned PH ... Anyway, I went to try and hunt for some Boaters coffee today (I couldn't find it) and on my hunt.. popped into Holland and Barrett... I'm strolling around and I found "Colon+" ... (which I found out was powdered form psyllum husks!) Anyway, I looked and was tempted to get some but it was £12!! ... But there was a sign up sayin about it bein half price....... Got to the till.... and they explained that there was a token in "healthy" magazine to get it for half price...

    So I bought the mag, and the psyllum... £12 for the PH, £1.50 for the mag, minus £6 off the psyllum with the voucher... £7.50! Bargain I thought??

    Thought maybe it might help if any of u were after some??... :cool:

    if you do a search there have been many threads about psyllium husks. It is a fibre that cannot be absorbed by the body, has no carbs and no calories and helps prevent constipation (among other things)

    Psyllium husks aren't a laxative as such but a bulking agent that absorbs liquid and prevents constipation :)
