What is Pysllium Fiber and Why Do I Need It?

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Meta. The opinions and text are all mine.


I’m on a mission to get healthy. After having 3 kids over the last 6 years, I’m finally making the right choices when it comes to my nutrition and activity levels. You can find me outside with my kids most days, working in the garden or landscaping, and we try to stay moving throughout the day. 


I’ve made some pretty huge adjustments to my diet, which include eliminating my “favorite” foods that were also making me miserable. But, along with that, I’ve added several supplements and vitamins to fill the gaps. 


Although I’ve been a long-time user of sugar-free Metamucil, I had no idea that there were SO many other amazing benefits to using it- mostly because it contains 100% psyllium husk!


Psyllium husk is a soluble, viscous, gel-forming fiber that doesn’t ferment. Not fermenting means that no gas is released. The gel-forming fiber traps and removes the waste that weighs you down*. On top of that, psyllium husk has several other benefits that you might not know about either!


1) Helps maintain healthy blood sugar levels as part of your diet*.
2) Helps lower cholesterol to promote heart health.
3) Promotes digestive health*.
4) Helps you feel less hungry between meals*(Metamucil powders only).


With so many additional benefits, it’s no wonder Metamucil has become a staple in my diet! If you’d like to give it a try, join the “Lighten Up” challenge and score $4 off, along with tips and tricks to help you along your way! Join here!


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 serving of Metamucil Powder has at least 2.4 grams of this soluble fiber. Consult a doctor if you are considering use of this product as part of a cholesterol-lowering program.
