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.**

THIS GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED

I’ll be the first one to admit that I have put on a considerable amount of weight; quite frankly this is dangerous and a serious concern.  I run the risk of having high cholesterol, and heart disease.

Did you know that a healthy diet includes 25-38 grams of fibre a day? However, on average Canadians only consumer 14 grams of fibre per day.   The Meta Fibre Bar is a new nutritious high fibre snack bar that contains psyllium fibre … the same fibre in Metamucil®.  It helps boost daily fibre intake while offering three key benefits; a nutritious high fibre snack; psyllium fibre helps reduce (LDL) cholesterol, a risk factor for heart disease+; and contains 100% naturally sourced psyllium fibre, a factor in the maintenance of good health.  Meta Fibre Bars are available in Cinnamon Oatmeal Raisin and Cranberry Lemon Drizzle.  +One serving size of Meta Fibre Bar with psyllium supplies 25% of the daily amount of the fibres shown to help lower cholesterol.

In 1934 Metamucil® introduced 100% natural source fibre to the world. Today the psyllium fibre in Metamucil is shown to give multi-health benefits.

Retailer Price Range:  $1.99 – $2.99 at major retailers across Canada.
