Metamucil Uses

Metamucil is an over-the-counter supplement mainly used to treat the following conditions:-

  • Occasional Constipation _ refers to the pain experienced during passing of bowel movement in the intestines.
  • Irritable bowel syndrome _ treats symptoms like bloating, gas, diarrhea or constipation.
  • Moderately high Cholesterol- Metamucil helps to increase bile production so cholesterol gets used up and thus decreases.

When taken for treating constipation, the main ingredient in Metamucil, a fiber called psyllium works by absorbing water from the intestines to form bulk in the stool and to cause contractions in the intestinal muscles, which is necessary for the easy passage and expulsion of stool from your body.

Metamucil is also used for treatment of mild to moderately high cholesterol. Metamucil works by trapping bile acids in the small intestine. As a result the production of bile is increased. When more bile is produced the level of cholesterol is used up and thus automatically reduced.

Metamucil can be safely used as an everyday supplement to increase your fiber intake.
