Have you taken the psyllium-pill yet /ck/? Worth it even if just for the clean poops
>>12469129This stuff is good. As someone who gets painful constipation to the point of bleeding every now and then this stuff is a lifesaver
>>12469129Yes this stuff is disgusting but is the only way to move the crap through my body
>>12469212It's not bad. It tastes like tang
makes you shit creamy logs.THEY arent firm.
Psyllium husk is used in just about every processed food that they want to add fiber back into. Why not supliment with chia seeds and/or ground flax? Give your body more diverse forms fiber than the same kind you are probably already consuming.For further reading and viewing, Rhonda Patrick did a really good interview on this topic: https://www.foundmyfitness.com/episodes/the-sonnenburgs
>>12469265>Why not supplement with chia seeds and/or ground flaxBecause this stuff is expensive
>>12469265Flax lowers testosterone
>>12469274Expensive?! Where are you located and where do you do your shopping? The junk food you are buying to plug up your guts are expensive if you look at the calories and nutrients you get from them.
psyllium husk is the only thing that makes my shit solidi have to take it to balance out the extreme liquid diarrhea inositol gives me
>>12469248soft yet requires little wiping. Very cool
Is it a laxative or just fibre?
>>12469129Been using the Walmart brand for years. Years of 3's and 4's on the Bristol stool chart. I don't know how people live without it.
>>12469129don't bother with the ground up horseshit that is metamucil,get psyllium whole husks and flavor it yourself. much more tolerable.
Do not use this if you have hemorrhoids or anal fissures. Sure it makes your poops soft, but it bulks them up too which can tear your fissure or irritate your hemorrhoid.
>>12469569It's fiber; mostly soluble fiber. It is both anti-constipation and anti-diarrhea. Once you figure out the daily dose that's best for you, you'll have consistent, daily 3's and 4's on the Bristol stool chart.
>>12469129>>12469210>>12469212>>12469214>>12469214>>12469438>>12469438Metamucil Original Coarse Fiber Powder is unflavored.https://www.metamucil.com/en-us/products/metamucil-fiber-supplement/metamucil-unflavored-fiber-powder
>>12469129yeah and now when i go on vacation i bring it along too. i dont understand how it's gotten to this point, but whatever. it works.
>>12469129If you buy metamucil you support Gilette (they're co-owned by the same company).Just get plain psyllium husk, its much cheaper and doesn't support the anti-male agenda.
>>12469637Both of those conditions are caused by damage to the anal sphincter due to 'bearing down' to pass reluctant stool (constipation).If you start taking a little psyllium with a lot of water and gradually increasing the dose each day it actually cures haemorrhoids and fissures.
be careful with that stuff. You gotta drink lots of water if you take it.
>>12469637>Do not use this if you have hemorrhoids or anal fissures. Sure it makes your poops soft, but it bulks them up too which can tear your fissure or irritate your hemorrhoid.r you me? I took husk after having constipation problems with rice. At the same time I was limiting my liquid intake because I was getting up to pee at night.One day while straining to get a huge one out, something happened. I got a fissure, and for the next 3 years, pooping was agony. blood everywhere.It finally healed, no more pain, no more blood. My diet of beans, bread, vegetables and pasta seemed to do the trick. I feel like a new person.
>>12471757So you took a large dose of it when a small dose would have been more appropriate, then didn't drink enough water?That's not the psyllium's fault, that's yours, you retard.
>>12469265>Rhonda Patrickwho the fuck is that, sounds black, into the trash
don't take psyllium if you're on any kind of medication, when it absorbs water in your stomach and gels up it will also absorb any medications floating around in your stomach and cause complications with absorbing them. consider wheat dextrin like benefiber. wheat dextrin also mixes easier into drinks and foodlevel up your poo game
>>12471956I took a regular dose with a big glass of water.I thought that was good enough.But it's not. Like someone else said. Use a small amount with lots of water first, see what happens, and gradually increase if needed.
>>12469129I tried doing this everyday for a few months but it didn't do anything. Didn't change my appetite nor the consistency of my stool. Plus it was a pain to drink since it would precipitate out of solution and form a gelatinous layer in the bottom of the cup. And you have to drink it 3 times a day to get the full benefit. The capsules are worse since you have to take 6 at once, 3 times a day. There has to be a more efficient way to get extra fiber.
>>12469129My uncle owns one of the patents so pls buy as much as possible to ensure a large inheritance for me thank you anons
>>12469248i dunno why but the THEY made me cry with laughter
Is everyone on this board 70 years old?
>>12474814Everyone on this board is an overweight alcoholic, both of which inflame your intestines and make you constantly uncomfortable.
>>1247481450's, but your bowels start fucking up even then if you're a carnist like 98% of the western world. Go vegan, get better poops!
>>12474909your bowels start fucking up even earlier if you take massive dicks in your ass on the regular like you doenjoy the diapers
Get that away from my fruit. No wonder Orange stocks are falling all over the world.
>>12474814>Is everyone on this board 70 years old?I ripped open my butt and got a fissure in my thirties. I was in agony for 3 years. It can happen to anyone. Don't fuck around constipation. Change diet (eat more fibrous starchy foods) and don't use husk. Stay way from rice also; it is highly constipating. Straining bowl movements can give you a stroke too.
>>12474947All I can say is have some Citrus.
>>12469265based Dr. Rhonda Patrick
>>12469214The orange is good. The berry is horrendous.
>>12472015Gotta chug it as soon as you mix or it turns gelatinous
>>12469539this brings me back to October of last year, i hand crafted i believe 95 images of this funky little guy on my old phone
