Metamucil has a new look, but is still the same great fibre supplement that you’ve come to know. We updated our packaging across all Metamucil products and added a new claim - Feel lighter and more active*
Metamucil provides you with all the following healthful benefits:
If you take Metamucil every day, it will naturally help the elimination of unwanted waste from your body to keep your digestive system clean. Metamucil contains Psyllium Husk which provides the bulk to the digested food which helps it move through the digestive tract at a normal rate, and relieves constipation.
* Clinical studies have shown that 7 grams of soluble fibre from Psyllium Husk, as found in Metamucil, taken daily as part of a heart-healthy diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may lower cholesterol. Reductions in cholesterol may contribute to reducing the risk of heart disease.
Metamucil powders contain Psyllium Husk, a natural dietary fibre originating from the psyllium plant. It works in the same way as high fibre foods. It provides the bulk to digested food which helps it move through the digestive tract at a normal rate, and relieves constipation.

Metamucil can be taken every day as a dietary fibre supplement. If you are considering use of Metamucil as part of a cholesterol-lowering program, please consult a doctor before using.
As a fibre laxative:
Metamucil is indicated for treating occasional constipation. Constipation persisting beyond seven days may be a sign of a more serious condition. We recommend you discuss with your doctor the use of Metamucil as a fibre laxative on a long-term basis.
