  • Effectiveness
    Major (for Acid reflux)
  • Side effects
    Mild (Abdominal cramps, Nausea)
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 1 tbs. Daily
Advice & Tips: The nausea and abdominal cramps only happened on the first and second days I took it, when I took the recommended 4T and 2T respectively. Since I reduced the amount to 1T on the third day, I have not experienced any side effects. I prefer taking this to psyllium husk, as it does not cause bloating or gas, you don't have to take as much and it is therefore less expensive.
Cost: < $25 monthly
