Did you know that the Philippine Food and Nutrition Research Institute recommends Filipino adults to consume 20 to 25 grams of dietary fiber daily? Sadly, inasmuch as we mean to source fiber from our daily diet, most of the time, it is not enough. Incidentally, the World's #1 selling fiber supplement has recently made a comeback. Metamucil is made from 100% natural psyllium fiber and is now available locally.
What is Psyllium?
Psyllium is an excellent source of fiber from the husk of the seeds of Plantago Ovata. Some of the benefits of Psyllium are: Promote good digestive health, lower cholesterol, maintain healthy blood sugar levels and makes the body feel less hungry in between meals.
Psyllium fiber thickens and forms a gel in the body to help trap wastes, some cholesterol and excess bile acids. It is through Psyllium's ability to gel that helps provide the body the above mentioned health benefits.
Metamucil comes in two flavors: Orange Smooth and Wild Berry and are available in leading drugstores nationwide.
