Metamucil Fibrecaps Capsules are made from the husk of natural psyllium seed. Metamucil 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 minimising constipation.
Metamucil is free from gluten and chemical stimulants. Metamucil is suitable as a daily dietary supplement to help promote regular bowel movements, control diabetes and reduce the risk of Coronary Heart Disease.
Soluble fibre from psyllium seed husk when included as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of Coronary Heart Disease by lowering blood cholesterol levels.
Psyllium fibre works like a sponge, absorbing cholesterol and fat in the small intestine and gently removes waste from your system.
Psyllium fibre also slows the absorption of sugars in the small intestine. This helps to improve blood glucose levels and is an important dietary supplement for diabetics.
In the colon, psyllium fibre absorbs water and add bulk to stool. This helps to promote regular bowel movements, minimising constipation.
Each capsule provides 525mg of psyllium husk powder.
Gluten free. No chemical stimulants.
