ACTIVE INGREDIENTS

Not All Fibres Are Created Equal.

Sure, fibre supplements are a convenient way to increase your daily fibre intake. But what you may not have realized is that not all fibres are the same. Metamucil® is the only leading fibre supplement brand with 100% natural psyllium fibre — and that makes all the difference.

Psyllium husk, a natural dietary fibre originating from plantago ovata, has been the source of both soluble and insoluble fibre in Metamucil® for 80 years. Studies suggest that the psyllium in Metamucil works differently.

The psyllium fibre in Metamucil® forms a viscous gel that traps waste, some cholesterol and excess bile acids and gently removes them from your body. This gel also traps some carbohydrates and sugars, allowing them to be more slowly absorbed by the body. This gelling property of psyllium provides the multi-health benefits of Metamucil®.*
