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?
