Helps maintain healthy blood sugar levels as part of your diet*: Metamucil fiber forms a viscous gel that traps some sugars and carbohydrates, which are slowly released and absorbed into the body, helping maintain healthy blood sugar levels.
Helps lower cholesterol to promote heart health†: Metamucil capsules provide a convenient way to help reduce your risk of heart disease by adding psyllium fiber to your heart-healthy diet. See below for information about soluble fiber and heart disease.
Helps promote digestive health*: The psyllium fiber in Metamucil capsules helps maintain regularity and can be used to treat occasional constipation.
†Diets low in saturated fat and cholesterol that include 7 grams of soluble fiber per day from psyllium husk, as in Metamucil, may reduce the risk of heart disease by lowering cholesterol. One adult serving of Metamucil capsules has at least 1.8 grams of this soluble fiber.

WHAT IS PSYLLIUM FIBER
Psyllium husk, a natural dietary fiber originating from plantago ovata, has been the source of both soluble and insoluble fiber in Metamucil for 80 years. Studies suggest that the psyllium in Metamucil works differently because it gels in your digestive system, providing Multi-Health benefits for your overall health.
METAMUCIL IS BETTER
Not all the fibers are created equal. Metamucil is the only leading fiber supplement brand with 100% natural psyllium fiber‡ — and that makes all the difference. No surprise it is the #1 doctor-recommended fiber brand.

GOOD NEWS FOR YOUR HEART
Psyllium yields about 70% soluble fiber. Studies have shown that just seven grams of soluble fiber per day from psyllium is beneficial for your heart—a stat that has not gone unnoticed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). 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.
