If you're shopping for 1,000mg capsules, look elsewhere, the 1050mg "dose" of this product is TWO CAPSULES, not one. So, when comparing prices, cost per dose is double the cost per capsule -- easy way to look less expensive than true 1,000mg capsules.
I would say this stuff compares nicely to the Yerba Prima brand (which are what I thought to be the best quality Psyllium caps available). Unfortunately, Yerba Prima brand has crept up in price... These on the other hand are priced very nicely. Even though the 1050 mg is actually for 2 capsules, the fact that there are 120 capsules per bottle and they ship as 2 bottles, it's still a damn-good deal. The capsules are very similar to Yerba Primas and the effect of the psyllium is similar also. Some brands of psyllium have a harder capsule, that often times cracks/breaks in the bottle leaving many useless capsules. These are very flexible, like Yerba Primas, so none are broken in the bottle. Also, it seems they're using the same species of the plant as them also, judging by the color. For example, NOW Foods brand of psyllium is a different species of the plant and of the type that's less effective than others (it's also lighter in color and seemingly ground to an even finer powder)...
This is a good effective product and as noted it takes two capsules to get one gram of fiber. I have used it for over a year but I’m going to switch to TN Vitamins, link: Amazon:http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003VV05IM/ref=gno_cart_title_0?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A1254QEB1ZCPX5. I’m switching because one capsule of TN will give me one gram of fiber so its cheaper to use when you prefer the convenience of capsules. You can also get your fiber through those fiber powders which can provide three grams of fiber in each rounded tablespoon. I just prefer the simplicity and convenience of the capsules: no measuring, mixing, mixing again, spilling, cleaning up and then drinking. I figure switching will save me 75% over the same amount of time if I get the 500 capsule bottle.
