    I bought the psyllium husk capsules in a bid to try regulate my digestive system.

    Question is what's the best way to take them.

    With the capsules, I take 2 in the morning with a large glass of water.
    And another 2 around 5pm ish, with a large glass of water.

    It says on the directions of my bottle
    "Take 2 capsules 3 times a day, with a minimum of 250ml of water, 30-60 minutes before meals. Do not exceed the stated dose"

    I find 2 doses a day are enough for me at the moment :)

    They are fab, and also give you feeling of fullness. I take 2 twice a day also, with a glass of water, that water cant be counted with your daily amount its on top of

    Thanks

    I am going to start taking them in the morning. I got them from Holland & Barrett today and they happen to be half price right now f you are looking to top up. It does say about taking before food on the bootle but seeing as we are off food I wanted to see what others thought. :D
    One more question .... do I need to worry about any TMI episodes or does everything happen naturally?

    They just give your bowels some bulk to work with, to stop constipation happening. If you are constipated these will not do anything and could make matters worse!

    I got mine from there too, and if they are half price I am going to get my shrinking butt down there! :D thanks for the heads up!
