Benefits of Metamucil Fiber Supplement

Metamucil Fiber Supplement Health Benefits

Metamucil is the only leading fiber supplement that’s formulated with plant-based psyllium husk.^ Here, you’ll find the major benefits, dosage instructions, and side effects of taking Metamucil.



Helps promote digestive health*

The psyllium fiber in Metamucil helps maintain regularity and can be used to treat occasional constipation, helping you feel lighter and more energetic.

Helps maintain healthy blood sugar levels*

Metamucil forms a viscous gel that traps sugars, which are slowly released and absorbed into the body, helping you maintain healthy blood sugar levels.*

Helps support heart health by lowering cholesterol†</sup

The gelled psyllium traps some bile acids in the small intestine, preventing reabsorption. These trapped bile acids are passed into the large intestine with waste. The liver draws cholesterol from the blood to make new bile acids, resulting in lower blood cholesterol levels.

Helps you feel less hungry between meals*

The gel formed by the psyllium fiber in Metamucil in your stomach can help you feel fuller longer, helping curb your hunger between meals by reducing your desire to eat.*
