2 Ways to Start Your Day With METAMUCIL® Smoothies #PGMom #MetaBar

Look and feel your best with two small steps to live a long and healthier lifestyle.  Just choose which of these two smoothies you’re going to drink today!

Canadians looking to improve their health can start their day off right with psyllium fibre.

On a personal note, I already enjoy the Meta Fibre Bar on a regular basis.  I find that it helps me to feel full; which in turn helps me to be more regular. Especially with my recent health issues, and now taking an opioid, it is quite common to become irregular.  Metamucil gives me what I need to continue about my day without the concern of any daily setbacks.

Psyllium fibre, the naturally sourced dietary fibre found in Metamucil powder, has a long history of use in traditional and herbal medicines. In fact, it can provide multi-health benefits, such as helping to lower cholesterol to promote heart health* and can temporarily suppress your appetite, when taken prior to a meal.**
