Most of us don't get nearly enough fiber in our diet (usually from too much processed food and not enough fruits and vegetables), so we need an extra push to help us make um... our push. Metamucil is a great helper when it comes to "working things out". These capsules are flavorless, easy to swallow, and convenient to store and carry. You can take a bottle to the office, or a few capsules with you in your pocket to take at meals, for example. As listed on the label, each "serving" is 6 capsules and gives you 11% (3g) of your recommended daily intake of fiber and adds 10 calories.

As good as Metamucil is, I do have a few beefs. I really don't like all the chemical additives. It is advertised as 100% pure psyllium husk, but it's not a 100% natural product. It contains polysorbate 80 (a preservative), and 3 FD&C dyes, a bit much for something that comes out the same color in the end. Polysorbate 80 is used to extend shelf-life and prolong storage, but the colorants serve no purpose, cosmetic or otherwise.

Secondly, the price is not very good. Lesser known brands/generics like Now Foods Psyllium Husk 500mg, 500 Capsules cost a lot less. At almost a third of the price ($.03/capsule), that's a huge savings. There shouldn't be any difference in effectiveness since the main ingredient is ground up seed husks from the psyllium plant (Plantago ovata, related to the common plantain weed that grows in many people's gardens). Fiber is fiber. It is indigestible to humans regardless of what company it comes from, so you're not getting any extra benefit out of paying more for one brand versus another. You're literally flushing money down the toilet.

Since taking these I have noticed a much better experience with bowel movements. Everything comes out nice and clean now. That has been a great side affect of the product. I use about 1/3 of the toilet paper I used before.

I take 3 pills 2x a day. This is great to boost your fiber intake which is of course good for a number of reasons. The Psyllium should also reduce cholesterol.

As others have mentioned there are some dyes and other uneeded additives in this product. If that is a concern for you then try this instead:

For those complaining of gas, your a ramping up too quickly. Start with one pill a day if your body is not used to processing fiber. Also try adding pepper to your diet.

I bought these hoping to supplement my fiber intake. I eat a lot of fiber daily but was still falling short of the recommended daily amount. I thought I'd take a supplement since I can't eat 3 cups of kidney beans every day. Looks like I'll still be eating a cup of beans and an additional 18 pills a day?????!!!!!

1 serving gives you 3 grams of dietary fiber. Sounds good until you read that 1 serving is 6 capsules! I'm going to continue using this product until the pills are gone because I don't waste money. After that, I'm looking elsewhere.

My doctor recommended taking Metamucil daily for IBS.

The old Metamucil mix had a profound positive effect on my health. However, it was annoying to take when traveling, plus it really made drinking glasses difficult to clean.

The cookies were more convenient, but tasted slimy, which is not a good taste for cookies.

These capsules are even more convenient and have no bad taste and nothing to clean up. WARNING: ALWAYS TAKE THE CAPSULES WITH THE RECOMMENDED AMOUNT OF LIQUIDS!

N.B. If you struggle with IBS, I highly recommend that in addition to these capsules you eat yogurt with active cultures at least once a day, and always drink a generous amount of liquids such as water.

Earlier this year I had the very painful experience of an Anal Fissure. When I went to visit the doctor, he told me to continue drinking plenty of water which I always do and to also up my fiber intake with Metamucil. Already eating a very healthy, whole foods diet, I was a little skeptical but decided to buy some to have on hand. I have to say I was amazed at how LITTLE fiber Metamucil actually has in it considering I was supposed to be consuming 30-35g of fiber a day. PLUS the powders are full of all sorts of nasty additives that I do not wish to consume.

The capsules are the ONLY Metamucil product that I have found that is just pure Psyllium Husk. HOWEVER the cost of consuming 18 of these a day for only 9g of fiber didn't sound a wise decision. Surely there must be a better fiber supplement/food out there and cheaper! Yes there is! Oats! 1 cup of rolled oats gives you 16g of fiber. SO now I eat a cup of oats for breakfast and just take 6 of these capsules at lunchtime with a healthy, full of fiber meal. I probably could give them up but the pain I experienced is something I never want to go through again so for now I will stick with a little extra fiber for peace of mind and a pain free rear end!

Watch the dosage. While I just started today and can't comment on the effectiveness, I was amazed that they say take 5 capsules 4 times a day! At that rate, one bottle will only last 8 days. If it works, I'll look at the generic versions.
