  • Effectiveness
    Major (for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis)
  • Effectiveness
    Major (for constipation)
  • Effectiveness
    Major (for pain)
  • Side effects
    Mild (diarrhea)
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 2 g Daily
Advice & Tips: Definitely build up to the 4 tablespoons because you will experience some stomach discomfort and could cause diarrhea if you too quickly increase your dosage. My right thumb was dead of any movement and now it can move some. Constipation is no longer an issue at all. The nightmare pain or restless leg symptoms have significantly reduced.
Cost: $25-49 monthly
Side effects: diarrhea
