I'm So Used To It

Besides drinking a glass of warm water (first thing in the morning before I step into the bathroom), I will make myself a mug of psyllium husks before I go to work every morning. Some how I managed to accept this tasteless and slimy drink and have become so used to it now. Due to time constraint in the morning, I just add 1 tbsp of psyllium husks into a full glass of plain water and gulp it down before I rush off to work. Although it is supposed to be taken 3 times a day (as printed on the packet) I think for me, it is sufficient to just have it once in the morning or sometimes evening.

I have been diligently drinking psyllium husk for almost a month now and I must say that it really does helps to improve my bowel movements. As I don’t take in enough fiber everyday, psyllium husk definitely gives me more roughage in my daily diet. I’ve read some articles in the websites, which state that people with high cholesterol problem would benefit from taking psyllium husk as it can help to reduce cholesterol level.

Recently, hubby also starts to take a glass of psyllium husk daily. Hopefully his cholesterol level could be reduced in no time. Even Sharlene’s nanny is drinking this fiber beverage now.

I eat a tablespoon of psyllium husk too every morning. I feel really geli gulping it down with plain water. I put them into my apple cider vinegar with Manuka honey or soya bean milk. I've been eating this PH for years and it has helped prevent my piles.
