I have a product called Konsyl that a doctor told me to take. Probably the only thing he ever did good for me! It's 100% natural psyllium fiber. I have it, so I have to finish using it. I was using the Yerba Prima husks. I like it better. The Konsyl gets very thick very fast and the dose is 1 rounded teaspoon in 8 ounces of water. And you are right - - the taste does kinda grow on you. I guess the most important thing is that we are taking it at all!
