Top 5: Top selling psyllium nutritional supplements on Amazon.com
Best-selling does not always mean that something is the best of the best or the top product on the market. Just because a Toyota Corolla is a top selling brand, doesn’t mean you won’t find every bit of enjoyment out of driving of owning a Honda Civic, or similarly, a Mazda 3. When it comes to consumer goods especially, the plethora of choices available to us means that you will have many differing opinions on what is the best and which to buy.
But “best-selling” does provide some guidance on trends, and as the saying goes, where there is smoke, there is probably fire. If people are coming back again and again to purchase the same product, we can safely assume that it is tried and tested and that there must be something about it that works.
If you are dipping your toe into the world of dietary fiber, you will probably start with or at the very least come across psyllium fiber or psyllium husk powder. (I can hear the long-term supplement aficionados roll their eyes… be nice, we were all newbies once!)
Well, Amazon publishes a list of their best-selling “psyllium nutritional supplements” as they refer to it, and we have summarized the top 5 for you so you can make a properly informed choice about your health.
1. The top selling psyllium supplement on Amazon.com
This is the first of not one, not two, but three NOW Foods products on the top 5 list. Hear that? That is NOW Foods dominating this category…. like a boss. You know you rule the psyllium supplement arena when you own 60% of a top 5 list (and, had we extended this list to 10, there would even be a fourth NOW Foods product on the list!) We knew this was a winner so we have a full review for you so you can get the low down on NOW Foods psyllium husk powder.
2. Hot on the heels of the number one spot: Organic India Whole Husk Psyllium.
Not to be outdone this psyllium supplement has (at the time of writing) an even higher customer satisfaction rating on Amazon. It is also natural and comes with a re-sealable lid which might push it over the edge for me as I hate having open bags of products like flour, sugar and psyllium husk powder around the house (could you tell that I am clumsy?). For more information, check out my full review of this Whole Husk Powder.
3. Feels like Deja-Vu doesn’t it?
Similar to the top-selling psyllium on Amazon, number three on this list is from NOW Foods, comes in a bag, and is pure psyllium. The difference here is that this is the actual whole husk as opposed to the husk powder. It might work you out a little bit cheaper, but unless you are using this for baking, it might be a little more difficult to swallow down than its cousin at number one.
4. The dietary fiber that is racing up the list.
Great reviews and doctor referrals have put KONSYL PHARMACEUTICALS Original Formula psyllium fiber in the top 5 (actually up a position from when we checked the first time around!) This dietary fiber has a loyal following and a loyal following is like a best-seller list, you have something to back up your decision when you press the purchase button!
5. I’d be very happy if I were a NOW Foods employee…
We are at number five and guess what? Give me an N! Give me an O! Give me a….. well… you get the idea. The third psyllium supplement from Now Foods is actually a bronze medal winner in disguise as it is whole psyllium husks just like number three on the list, but here it comes in a canister. This gives you all the benefits of a dietary fiber with the added benefit of being in a canister with sealable lid. Might be a smidgen higher on my list than some other best-sellers on Amazon, as long as you remember to recycle the canister!
If you prefer to take your supplements in pill form, it is unfortunate that none of the best-selling psyllium supplements on the list are capsules. Just outside the top 5 (no really, it sits at number 6….) we have Yerba Prima Psyllium Husk Capsules that has great reviews and is definitely worth a look.
That rounds out the top selling psyllium dietary fiber supplements on Amazon.com. All of these supplements are available in our online store where you will find additional product details and comparable products.
Do you agree with the list or is there a psyllium dietary fiber that you prefer over the ones listed here? Let me know in the comments!
