Digest plus is water retentive, absorbing about 20 times it's weight in water, it does not actually dissolve when mixed with liquid but creates a gel like substance. A serving of digest plus is 5g (one heaped teaspoon) For every 5g you will need to add an extra 250ml of water. Take with one glass of water and drink another glass of water after. Ensure the required levels of liquid are met for every heaped teaspoon either by including more liquid than normal, or by drinking more water before or after consumption. Adding digest plus to smoothies or juices may be an option, but be aware that it will thicken the shake so if this is not suited take 5g with water or fruit juice prior to food consumption. Remember to consume a glass of water afterwards. Digest plus can also be used in breakfast cereals, yogurts or with fruits but ensure to add extra water if doing so.
