Holland & Barrett Psyllium Husks Review

Editor's Rating:

Here we are going to review Holland & Barrett Psyllium Husks Capsules which is a supplement. It claims that it supports waste collection through the intestinal tract. This supplement is used to regulate bowel movements. If you would like to learn more about this supplement, and find out if we believe it is the right choice for your constipation issues, continue reading.




  • Psyllium Husks

The active ingredient in this supplement is psyllium husk. It is used as a treatment for constipation. It works in two ways to produce bowel movements. One of these is that it causes stool to bulk up helping the intestines move, and the other is by creating softer stools that make them pass more easily.


The manufacturer recommends that 2 capsules be taken 3 times in 24 hours. These doses should be taken about half an hour before eating with at least 8 ounces of water. Do not exceed more than 6 capsules in one day. According to our research the amount of the active ingredient delivered per capsule is much lower than what is recommended as an effective dose to treat constipation. One dose (2 capsules) contains 1 mg of psyllium, and the advised dose of psyllium is 15mg.

Possible Side Effects

It is strongly suggested that plenty of water be consumed while taking this medication. Not doing so can lead to the product swelling in your esophagus or throat causing you to choke. Minor effects which can be caused by taking any product containing psyllium are bloating, gas and cramping. The more serious effects include abdominal pain, nausea, itching, vomiting or rash. Seek medical attention if you experience any of these serious effects.


This product is available to purchase through the manufacturer’s website. A bottle which contains 200 capsules costs £12.99 ($20.43), not including shipping charges. Free local delivery is offered with orders over £20 ($31.45).


After extensive research we were not able to find any information regarding a satisfaction guarantee. Holland & Barrett does provide a return policy which is only for items that arrive to the customer damaged. The product must remain unopened to be eligible for return. Once returned it must be inspected and approved before a refund will be issued. Additional information on the return policy and the shipping address is available online. There were few customer reviews for this product, but most of them were positive. The majority of them gave the product a 5 star rating, and recommended it. A very small number of the reviews were negative, complaining the product showed no results for them.


Holland & Barrett Psyllium Husks Capsules are a supplement used to maintain regularity. It is a gluten, milk, yeast, lactose and wheat free product. There is no added salt or sugar, and there are no preservatives, artificial flavors, colors or sweeteners. This can be important to customers with certain conditions and allergies like diabetes and lactose intolerance. However, the seemingly low dose of the active ingredient and the more serious possible side effects bring up concerns. And making it difficult to trust the product’s ability to work is the lack of a satisfaction guarantee and the very restrictive return policy.
