Is Metamucil Healthy?


Most of my life I have been severely allergic to aspartame.  I’m sincerely grateful because studies show how detrimental it is to our health. 

After my second pregnancy I had major issues with everything almost.  I couldn’t even use the bathroom for 2 weeks straight.  I had no idea what to do and I jumped into my study books and researched psyllium husk.  Right away I asked my husband to track it down.  He went to Shoppers Drug Mart  & he came home with Metamucil because that’s what they suggested.

Without reading the ingredients(my husband & I)…I read the instructions and guzzled my first cup.  Instantly I felt faint and even sicker; I was on the verge of knocking out!  After stating “Woah, something is not right!”

I grabbed the bottle & finally read the ingredients and went on an automatic detox.

Now the ingredients baffle me why use artificial sugar with an all natural herb???  It was just completely nuts to me.  So what I did and continue to do is add pure psyllium husk to my green smoothies & I never had a problem again. I get mine at Bulk’n Barn.  It’s cheaper & healthier.  You can’t go wrong.
