FAQ

Q: What is “MultiHealth”? Is Metamucil the same product I’ve been taking, or has it changed?

A: Metamucil has a new look, but is still the same great fiber supplement that you know and trust. We updated our packaging across all Metamucil products adding the term “MultiHealth fiber” because Metamucil provides you with the following healthful benefits:

Helps you feel less hungry between meals (Metamucil Powders Only)*

Helps lower cholesterol to promote heart health†

Promotes digestive health*

Helps maintain healthy blood sugar levels as part of your diet*

You will also notice we updated our dosing directions. Please reference the back of the product you are using for dosing instructions for each benefit.

Q: Why does my Metamucil package look different? Is the product the same?

A: The product is the same, but the packaging has been updated to make your favorite fiber easier to find. We’ve also provided the multiple benefits of Metamucil on the front of the package – look for them, along with all other product information, on the front and back labels of your Metamucil product.

Q: How does Metamucil help me feel fuller longer between meals?

A: Metamucil MultiHealth fiber powder, when taken in 8 or more ounces of liquid with meals helps you feel less hungry between meals*. This is because the Metamucil psyllium fiber thickens and forms a gel which aids in the sensation of fullness and prolongs the intestinal phase of nutrient digestion and absorption, allowing you to feel fuller longer*.

Q: Is it OK to take Metamucil with food? Should I take it before or after meals?

A: Any time of day is appropriate to take Metamucil as long as an adequate intake of fluids (at least 8 ounces of water or liquid per serving) is consumed. We recommend taking Metamucil three times per day at mealtimes as a convenient way to get the benefits of Metamucil. Our powdered product must be mixed with liquids, not taken in its dry form. Capsules should be taken one at a time; we do not recommend dissolving them in water. Please take Metamucil with at least 8 ounces of liquid, as indicated. For Metamucil Multihealth and Fiber Capsules Plus Calcium, we recommend taking them four times per day with at least 8 ounces of liquid, as indicated.

Q: Is it OK to use Metamucil every day?

A: As a dietary fiber supplement: Metamucil can be taken every day up to three times per day as a dietary fiber supplement. If you are considering use of Metamucil as part of a cholesterol- lowering program or to help maintain healthy blood sugar levels as part of your diet*† , please consult a doctor before using.

For digestive health: Metamucil is indicated for treating occasional constipation and to promote and maintain regularity. Constipation persisting beyond seven days may be a sign of a more serious condition.

Q: What are the dosing directions to achieve the “helps you feel less hungry between meals” benefit?

A: The dosage directions for the “helps you feel less hungry between meals” benefit are:

Adults 12 yrs. and over:

Metamucil Powder Sugar Free versions - Two rounded teaspoons in 8 or more ounces of liquid with meals, up to 3 times daily.

Metamucil Powder with Sugar versions – Two rounded Tablespoons in 8 or more ounces of liquid with meals, up to 3 times daily

Q: Why have the children’s dosing directions been removed? Can I still use for my child?

A: Metamucil is now labeled as a dietary supplement, which is not recommended for daily dosing for children under 12. For relief of occasional constipation (irregularity) for children under 12 dosing directions are provided below:

Metamucil Fiber Powder:

Children 6-11 years: ½ adult dose in 8 oz of liquid, up to 3 times daily

Children under 6 years: Consult a doctor.

Q: Do the capsules or capsules + calcium provide the “helps you feel less hungry between meals” benefit?

A: The Metamucil capsules do provide the same benefits as the powder; however the serving size for the “helps you feel less hungry between meals” benefit is not a realistic serving size for most individuals.

Q: Why have the drug facts / drug information been removed from Metamucil Powder?

A: Metamucil MultiHealth Fiber Powder is a daily fiber supplement. The label information has been updated to be consistent with fiber supplement labeling and the drug facts and drug warnings have been removed on most versions. There are 4 Metamucil products that retained the drug facts as a fiber therapy for regularity. These include the Metamucil Orange Powder 30 count singles (Sugar and Sugar-Free versions) and the Metamucil Orange 48 dose Powder (Sugar and Sugar-Free versions).

Q: Is Metamucil still a laxative? Will it still provide relief from constipation?

A: The Metamucil product is the same, and psyllium is indicated for relief of occasional constipation (irregularity) and to help promote and maintain regularity.

Q: Can I add Metamucil Powder to my coffee or hot tea?

A: One serving of Metamucil Powder should be taken with at least 8 fluid ounces of a cool or cold drink like water, fruit juice, milk, or other cold beverage. Stir briskly and drink promptly. If the mixture goes too thick, add more liquid and stir.

Q: Can Metamucil be used past the expiration date?

A: If your Metamucil has expired, please don't use it. The expiration date is on Metamucil because we have research to show that the ingredients are stable until the expiration date, if stored according to label instructions. Please discard any expired product in your trash can. Do not pour Metamucil down your drain.

Depending on the version you purchased, Metamucil has a two- to three-year shelf life. The expiration date is stamped on the bottom or side of each canister or bottle or on the back of each packet. If you purchased a box of wafers, the expiration date is stamped in ink on the side of each foil packet. The expiration dates are expressed by month and year, which means that the product can be used through the month noted.

It's poop magic. Do you know what a ghost wipe is?? It's when you wipe, and the toilet paper is clean. Like you never wiped. That's how awesome this stuff is. When I don't take this stuff, it's like wiping peanut butter out of a shag carpet.

Flavor Name: OrangeSize Name: 30.4 oz (72 doses)
Everybody knows what Metamucil does. It has been on the market so long because it does it well. I take this product because my Doctor recommended it for good digestive and cardiac health. Some people (my Doctor included) feel that the benefits of a diet high in fiber, in this case psyllium, go beyond the GI tract and are beneficial to other physical systems. I have been taking this for several years (I take the capsules when I travel) with no side effects. Some people find the taste a bit objectionable, but I guess that I am just used to it by now.

Psyllium is used in Metamucil because of its very high mucilage content. Mucilage is the term used to describe a group of gelling agents made from plant fibers. Mucilage is made by grinding or milling the outer layer of the seed. Mucilage made from "Plantago" seeds is called psyllium husk. The mucilage from psyllium husk is a hydrophilic (water-loving), white, fibrous material. When water is absorbed (in this case in the intestines), the mucilaginous gel that forms increases in volume by more than a factor of ten, which, of course, is why it is extremely effective as a bulk laxative, as it is not digested by the small intestine. Because of this, psyllium mucilage serves to absorb excess water, while simultaneously stimulating gastrointestinal elimination.

As a socio-political aside, the United States is the world's largest psyllium importer, with the bulk (please pardon the pun) of imports for use in products such as Metamucil.

Now that you know all about the wonders of psyllium, you should know this: this is a very large container of psyllium. Very large. So large it does not fit in some cabinets, depending on shelf height. If you want to keep your Metamucil habit discreet, be forewarned that this is an extremely large container of fiber, and can be unwieldy to conceal.

Buying in bulk makes this a bargain!

Flavor Name: Orange Sugar CoarseSize Name: 114-dose Verified Purchase
Unfortunately and inconveniently, humans are practically as unique snowflakes when it comes to our body chemistry and how we respond to food, drinks and drugs. One man's helpful and healthful regimen is effectively poison for another. You'd think we all came from different planets. Not only does this make things complicated for medical science, but also makes it difficult to unequivocally recommend anything one might ingest. So it's best if you insert "For me..." into everything I write about this product.

Not all "natural laxative" products are created equal. Psyllium husks pounded to talcum powder do NOT behave identically within the body as coarse psyllium husks, whatever hopeful marketing literature you may have read. Eating "smooth" Metamucil will give you all the digestive and intestinal benefits of eating, say, Tang. Sweet and tasty, and that's about it.

This will be bad news for everyone who thinks they can avoid the coagulated glop versions of Metamucil in favor of the less objectionable varieties and still achieve the same healthful benefits. You can't. You can achieve some FRACTION of the benefits in the same way that you can achieve some of the benefits of communication with smoke signals as opposed to cell phones. But if you think it's going to be the same, you're just deluding yourself. A big part of the benefit you receive from Metamucil is by virtue of its coarse, somewhat gritty texture. A fiber product that "dissolves completely" in water is not going to suddenly transform into a gangbuster in your guts. Sorry if you find that disappointing.

The unflavored, original coarse Metamucil works the very best for the least amount of Metamucil consumed. It is also the most objectionable to eat.

Flavor Name: OrangeSize Name: 114-dose Verified Purchase
I started taking sugar free Metamucil in place of Benefiber in order to get the cholesterol reducing benefit that Benefiber reportedly does not have. The aspartame in the Metamucil gave me headaches, so I had to switch to the sugared variety. The down side to Metamucil is that it does get thick if you don't drink it quickly. I used to just add Benefiber to my coffee in the morning and it was tasteless, clear and did not get thick. Very painless way to get fiber. But I do find the Metamucil seems to give me a better benefit as far as bowel regularity than the Benefiber did. I don't like the sugar in it but there does not seem to be a better alternative for me right now.
Another reviewer commented on the large container being hard to fit in the cupboard and even harder to hide if you didn't want to advertise your health issues. Buying in bulk for the cost saving does have its down side. Anyway, I keep mine proudly displayed in the cupboard next to drinking glasses so I don't forget to take it. But it can just as easily be transferred a little at a time into a pretty jar or tin, and replenished as needed.

Flavor Name: OrangeSize Name: 114-dose
Seriously, who likes to talk about this stuff? Let alone review a product about helping poop?
But, being the geeky engineer that I am, I am compelled to analyze the situation - so here goes...

I had a bad stomach bug a while ago and needed something to help me go and get back on schedule.
After that, I am now hooked on Metamucil as a serious aid in digestive health.

I take one spoon in AM and one in the PM, and the next morning, like clockwork, is an awesome BM (bowel movement)!
I eat extremely healthy, and eat probably ten varieties of fruits and vegetables daily. I am also a workout nut, having done P90X and exercising at least 5 days a week.
So, I am no shlep in the health department (I'm 48 and fortunately quite healthy so far).

That said, taking Metamucil offers the final touch to regularity and a great poop experience.
The result is minimized bloating and gas during the day, and when pooping it tends to all come out at once - more of a total emptying of the bowel. And it is effortless and smooth.
Further, the poop comes out sort of encapsulated in this slippery mass that makes for a super clean wipe - sometimes nothing on the paper at all. So, it is a cleaner experience with zero irritation, and I just feel clean during the day. Need I say more? Nice.

As a side note: On days that I work out, I mix this with vanilla flavored protein powder in same glass - and it tastes like an orange creamsicle - just great!
I actually like the consistency of it and prefer to let it sit a few minutes to thicken. I also drink a lot of cold water during the day (I don't think it a good idea to take something like this without a lot of water intake to keep it moving along).

So, if the product agrees with you, then I highly recommend it for the results that I have personally had. Good luck.
