All I can say is, when I tried to use psyllium and bentonite, it bound me up and mad my symptoms worse. I use Ultimate Cleanse from Nature's Secret and it works great for me. Checkout their web-site to see if you would like to try it for yourself. BTW, it does have psyllium in it, as well as Cascara Sagrada bark and many other fibers and herbs. So, it may not be good for everyone.
