POWDER will stick to the throat and try to enter into the lungs when you breathe and that can cause a sever reaction, no matter what the powder is.
With Cascara Sagrada in the LBB formula, it causes human tissues to "MOVE", this is how it makes the colon muscles stronger.........this also means EXTREMELY BITTER HERB and the 1 herb you never want as a powder stuck on your throat---so capsules only with plenty of water/juice.
PEOPLE that swallow capsules with no drinking are crazy and NEVER do that with LBB capsules...
OF the powders are wet that is better, but still, never take LBB unless in a capsule.
For many sensitive people, they can not take any type of capsule, because just the capsule touching their throat causes a reaction.,,,so they want liquids only. LBB can not be taken in a strong form as a liquid or paste, but some do and some even take as powder......it is just best to never do that and take in capsules only.
IF you make your own capsules, you must wipe off the powder from the outside of the capsules or drink with plenty of water.
