Eating foods that are high in fibre and good for your heart can be a challenge. Adding Metamucil® to your diet can be a huge help. The psyllium husk in Metamucil Powder is clinically proven to help lower cholesterol to promote heart health.†

Psyllium, the all-natural fibre found in Metamucil Powder, is a good source of soluble fibre. Studies have shown that just seven grams of soluble fibre per day from psyllium is beneficial for your heart. They state that when consumed as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, products containing psyllium may reduce the risk of heart disease.

*Always read the label, use only as directed. If symptoms persist, see your healthcare professional.


** Diets low in saturated fat and cholesterol that include 7 grams of soluble fibre from psyllium husk, as in Meta products, may lower cholesterol levels. Reductions in cholesterol levels may contribute to reducing the risk of heart disease. Consult a doctor if you are planning to take Meta products as part of a cholesterol lowering program.
