Question
Hi,
Can psyllium powder be mixed in with yogurt to go down easier?(and if it is needed drink 8oz of liquid after?)
What about psyllium whole husks?
Thanks

Answer
yes, those can be mixed..... if you are doing it for constipation, you can use miralax/glycolax instead.... I think it works a little better, but neither are absorbed, they just prevent excess water absorbtion in the colon leading to constipation.
