http;//www.joanbars.com We just put out a video showing you the advantages of using Metamucil fiber in our Saturday Morning Diet program. Metamucil® is different than clear-mixing fiber supplements, because it has psyllium fiber. We mixed both Metamucil and the leading clear-mixing fiber, containing wheat dextrin, with the recommended amounts of water. We then added cooking oil, dyed red, to both, to represent cholesterol. The psyllium fiber found in Metamucil gels and traps the oil like a sponge. The clear-mixing fiber does not. That’s how Metamucil works in your body. As the psyllium fiber enters your stomach, it forms a gel that traps and helps gently remove waste and some cholesterol. Clear-mixing fibers, like wheat dextrin, don’t work like this. Compare fibers today, and choose the fiber supplement that gels, traps, and helps remove—Metamucil. It’s different because it gels. It’s Metamucil.
