Psyllium Fiber

How the psyllium fiber in Metamucil can help lower cholesterol

Our bodies’ organ systems are all interconnected, working towards the same cause to keep us healthy and running at our best. Cholesterol, for example, travels through the blood stream to play a role in protecting our cells, stress responses, and more. But in excess, its plaque buildup is harmful to the body. Metamucil, a psyllium husk fiber supplement, is often known for promoting digestive health and maintaining regularity.* But did you know it also helps lower cholesterol to promote heart health?

The psyllium fiber in Metamucil helps lower cholesterol to promote heart health† by trapping some cholesterol in the digestive system to be removed with waste. When you take psyllium fiber, it forms a gel-like substance that moves through your digestive system. The gel traps some bile in your gut, requiring your liver to remove bad (LDL) cholesterol from the bloodstream to make more bile, which is needed for proper digestion.

Constipation

How Can Fiber Supplements Help Occasional Constipation?

Can you remember the last time you pooped? Regularly going #2 can mean anything between three times per day to three times per week. You may be constipated if you’re well past your regular schedule and feel pain when you try to pass stool. But you’re not alone. Approximately 20 percent of the world’s population is affected by constipation.1

You’ve probably been told to eat more beans, oats, or leafy green vegetables. Fiber is the power ingredient in these foods that makes you poop. Evidence shows that increasing dietary fiber can help constipation in children and adults.1

Increasing your fiber intake is the most common behavioral modification recommended to help with constipation because the right fiber improves your stool frequency and consistency.2

Fiber is present in lots of foods, so it may sound easy to just add more fiber to your diet. However, less than 10% of Americans reach the daily recommended fiber intake.3 That’s where fiber supplements can come in to help bridge the gap between recommendations and real-world diets. And some, like Metamucil, can help with occasional constipation to keep you regular.*

Find out how fiber supplements can help your occasional constipation.
