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.*
