Does anyone know how much psyllium husk I should take to prevent constipation? I always get constipated on long vacations and want to prevent that, but the bottle I have says each capsule is 0.52 grams but doesn't say how many to take a day for prevention, does anyone know? I can't find this info online.

I'm really not sure (I always use the it by the tablespoonful in a glass of juice) but wanted to mention that you should be sure to drink plenty of water when you take it.
