Hi - you can mix and match all of these or just use the tummy fiber. What is key is your dose - count all of the fibers towards your total dose in terms of grams. Start low, increase gradually, keep gradually increasing until you're stable.

You can add in konjac but it usually has a super high viscosity, so it may be hard to take as a supplement (choking risk). That's actually why they hydrolize the guar gum - if they didn't it would just gel a whole bowl of water. The tummy fiber is naturally super low viscosity, so it won't have that risk, and doesn't have to be hydrolized, which is why it can be certified organic.
