How metamucil work in your bodyHow Metamucil works in your body

Metamucil is the only leading fibre supplement brand that contains 100% natural psyllium husk - a great source of both soluble and insoluble fibre. Unlike clear-mixing fibre supplements, the psyllium in Metamucil forms a viscous gel, which is a daily cleanser for your insides and helps body's natural toxin removal process and cleansing effect. Here's how it works:

As the psyllium fibre enters your stomach it thickens and forms a viscous gel that traps some sugars and carbohydrates.

Helping maintain healthy cholesterol levels. 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.The soluble viscous gelling fibre from psyllium husk maintains its gelled nature through the digestive tract. In the large intestine this results in its stool normalizing benefit. By absorbing and retaining water the psyllium softens the stool to relieve constipation.
