Metamucil: a fibre supplement with
multi-health benefits

The average Canadian needs more fibre

ABOUT

Psyllium fibre is well-known for its effectiveness as a bulk-forming laxative in constipation. However, psyllium fibre is now also recognized for its cholesterol lowering effects and support of healthy blood sugar levels, both of which promote heart health.

METAMUCIL® IS THE ONLY LEADING FIBRE SUPPLEMENT WITH PSYLLIUM

Not all dietary fibre supplements are the same.

Metamucil® gives your patients health benefits of psyllium fibre that go beyond irregularity:

  • - Helps support healthy blood sugar levels
  • - Helps lower cholesterol to promote heart health
  • - Helps to suppress appetite before a meal

† Lowers mildly to moderately elevated cholesterol levels when taken with a low-fat diet
‡ Applies only to powdered formulations of Metamucil

OPTIONS & DOSING INFORMATION
