Q. Have Metamucil Capsules changed? Why does the label now say “One serving of Metamucil has 1.8 grams of this soluble fiber” when it used to say 2.4 grams of this soluble fiber?
A. Metamucil Capsules have not changed. One serving of Metamucil MultiHealth capsules now contains 1.8 grams of soluble fiber. Previously the label stated one serving has 2.4 grams of soluble fiber. This was updated to reflect the serving size change from 6 capsules per serving to 5 capsules per serving and makes the serving size the same as the Metamucil Fiber Capsules Plus Calcium.
Q. What does natural psyllium mean?
A. Metamucil contains psyllium husk, a natural dietary fiber originating from Plantago ovata, which promotes digestive health,* helps lower blood cholesterol levels to promote heart health,† and helps maintain healthy blood sugar levels as part of your diet.*
Q. Is there any scientific or medical evidence for the heart health claim?
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) reviewed extensive scientific data including numerous clinical studies to determine that psyllium husk, as in Metamucil, may help lower cholesterol to reduce the risk of heart disease when part of a low-fat, low-cholesterol diet† .
Q. Why should I talk to my doctor before I take Metamucil to lower cholesterol or to maintain healthy blood sugar levels?
A. We recommend that you contact your doctor before using Metamucil as part of a diet to reduce the risk of coronary heart disease by lowering cholesterol or to maintain your healthy blood sugar levels. There are many factors that your doctor will need to consider, including your health, medical and family history, lifestyle, other medication, and other risk factors. Your doctor is the best one to advise you.
Also, consider bulk-forming fibers like psyllium husk may affect how well medicines work. Take Metamucil at least 2 hours before or after medicines.
