You may hear the concoction called a P&B Shake. You mix 1 tablespoon of liquid bentonite and 1 teaspoon of psyllium husk powder into a drink of either water or juice. It must be shaken up and you must drink it immediately. You must then drink another full glass of water in order to get all of the psyllium down your system.
