Metamucil Smooth Orange is made from the husk of
natural psyllium seed, Metamucil works in the same way as high
fibre foods. It provides bulk to digested food which helps it
move through the digestive tract at a normal rate. An adequate
intake everyday helps promote a heathy digestive system.
To help lower your cholesterol levels:
Diets low in saturated fat and cholesterol that include 7 grams
of soluble fibre from psyllium husk, as in Metamucil, may lower

reducing the risk of heart disease.
Keep out of reach of children. In case of overdose, seek
professional help or contact a Poison Control Centre
