About Macro Organic Psyllium Husk

Macro Organic Psyllium Husk is a food product, unlike Konsyl-D which is a registered medicine. It contains 100% psyllium husks (which is another name for ispaghula husk).

We recommend people check the packaging for instructions on how much psyllium husk to use. Check with a pharmacist or other trusted health professional if you have any questions.
