Fiber Supplements for Beauty: Top Picks

Health and BeautyAssortment of Psyllium Husk Supplements
An assortment of Psyllium Husk supplements available at the market today.

All nutritionists claim that how we look depends on what we eat. Overeating and eating fatty food often causes constipation and other digestive issues. When the digestive system functions right the toxins are removed from the body, and this ensures proper oxygen supply to all body organs. So, if you want to have a good complexion and skin that doesn’t break out it’s essential to maintain digestive health. An effective method of improving digestion is to take dietary supplements. Psyllium Husk is the most popular dietary supplement that has long been known as the most efficient colon cleanser. I checked Google and discovered many Psyllium Husk supplements. I faced the dilemma: which Psyllium Husk brand to choose? Which one ensures the best result? I decided to read the reviews and they turned out to be very controversial. The obvious things was that I had to try them myself and make up my mind.

ColonBroom Powder
ColonBroom dietary suplement with strawberry flavor, 60 servings.

I started with the most popular and the most expensive dietary supplement – ColonBroom. It has a nice strawberry flavor and Psyllium Husk as the main ingredients. Other ColonBroom ingredients include crystallized lemon, citric acid, fruit and vegetable juice to add color, sea salt and stevia as sweetener. I dissolve 1 scoop of ColonBroom in water and drink right away. It tastes delicious.

After using ColonBroom for 2 weeks I noticed improvementsin my digestive health: no bloating and constipation, I feel light in the stomach, and I like this feeling very much. The only ColonBroom downsize is its price – $64.99, and the bottle lasts for a month. It costs much cheaper if your purchase 3- or 6-month ColonBroom subscription plan through their website ($35.99 per bottle). In other words, the more you buy the less each bottle of ColonBroom will cost. However, the company has frequent promotions on ColonBroom subscription plans, so you can save much money this way. If you want to buy just 1 bottle of ColonBroom you had better get it at Amazon or use ColonBroom Coupon ONLYYOU with your order to save 20% on your purchase.

Bellway Original with Pineapple Passionfruit
Bellway Original Super Fiber + Fruit with pineapple flavor.

Well, as I said before, ColonBroom is the most expensive Psyllium Husk supplement. When I was shopping at Target I ran into Bellway Original Super Fiber + Fruit ($29.99). It comes with pineapple fruit powder and has pleasant pineapple flavor. I usually have allergy on citrus fruits, but I didn’t have any allergic reaction on this product. Other ingredients include organic Psyllium Husk, monk fruit extract, salt, natural flavors and beta-carotene for color.

Well, what I liked about Bellway supplement is the nice pineapple flavor. Using it for two weeks I got bored with it, though. I didn’t notice much difference regarding my stool, I would say ColonBroom is much more effective for the digestive health.

Bellway Beauty Strawberry Lemonade
Bellway Beauty Super Fiber + Collagen with strawberry flavor.

To tell he truth, by that time I had got my eye trained on looking out for Psyllium Husk supplements in various stores. When I say Bellway Beauty with Collagen + Hyaluronic Acid I rubbed my feet in excitant as I was eager to try a new product to add to the existing collection.

Bellway Beauty $2 Off Discount
$2 Off Coupon on Bellway Beauty Super Fiber + Collagen at Target.

The initial price was the same as Bellway Original, but I purchased Bellway Beauty Super Fiber with discount of $2 Off offered by Target store. The ingredients are a little bit different, although the amount of the main ingredient Psyllium Husk is the same – 5 g per serving. Other ingredients include Hydrolyzed Collagen and Hyaluronic acid, lemon juice powder, strawberry juice powder, citric acid, natural flavors, monk fruit extract and beet juice for color. The only difference between Bellway Original and Bellway Beauty is that the latter has got collagen and hyaluronic acid, and different flavors and juice powder.

On the fifth day of using Bellway Beauty I noticed that I liked my complexion and waking up in the morning I look fresh. That was unexpected, I have never taken collagen before and didn’t expect to see any noticeable results so quickly. After taking it for a month (the bottle of Bellway Beauty lasted for a month) I can say that it definitely made my skin better. The texture of my mature skin improved, and the pores got smaller. My skin gained some nice velvet finish, and I even noticed some slight lifting effect. When it comes to beauty this Psyllium Husk supplement is the best, but I doubt that it is an effective solution to digestive problems.

Organic India Psyllium Husk Powder
Organic Psyllium Whole Husk Fiber on the store shelf.

Next time I purchased Psyllium Whole Husk Fiber at Bristol Farms Newfound Market. This organic Psyllium Husk ($16.98) also comes in a powder form, but it has nothing but Psyllium Husk in it, no juice powder or flavors added. That is why it is difficult to have it on its own.

I add Psyllium Whole Husk Fiber to fruit and vegetable smoothies to get them thicker and add fiber. Also, I add it to my pastry when I bake cupcakes, so they never fall apart. In other words, this Psyllium Whole Husk Fiber can’t be consumed when just mixed with water, but it works great in combination with other ingredients and in bakery.

Metamucil Fiber + Collagen and Naturlax Psyllium Powder.

Well, there are more supplements that contain Psyllium Husk to compare. I checked ColonBroom reviews and discovered that it is often compared to Naturlax Psyllium Powder ($21.50) and Metamucil ($24.98). I wouldn’t rate these two dietary supplements high.

Naturlax Psyllium Powder in Bottle
Naturlax Psyllium Powder peach flavor.

Even though both do contain Psyllium Husk, Naturlax includes artificial sweetener which is a blend of Erythritol and Stevia.

Naturlax Psyllium Husk Nutrition Facts

Naturlax Psyllium Powder is available in a range of flavors, I had the one with peach flavor which I liked.

Metamucil Dietary Supplement
Metamucil Fiber + Collagen with orange flavor available in store.

Finally, Metamucil is the least desirable and healthy. Yes, it does contain collagen, but maltodextrin as second active ingredient is not good.

This additive is made of plants but is highly processed and has a high glycemic index. I doubt that it is safe to use and had better avoid products that contain maltodextrin.

Colon Care Supplement Assortment
Assortment of dietary supplements for digestive system you can purchase in stores.

Well, summing up, I can say that currently I have two favorites: ColonBroom and Bellway Beauty. Both have natural Psyllium Husk and taste great. But the first is effective as an excellent detoxing supplement. The latter is perfect for beauty purposes. Using it you are sure to look your best.
