Is it safe to take Metamucil every day?

There is no evidence to show that Metamucil is harmful if taken daily. Metamucil is a line of fiber supplements that helpsto maintain intestinal health, regularity and satiety. When we use it every day in outsized amounts, it may cause negative effects which can be as such listed below:

  • Abdominal pain
  • Bloating
  • Gas pains
  • Nausea
  • Cramps

While it is not clear whether Metamucil would be necessarily harmful if taken every day, it may be better to use psyllium husk which also contains enriched fibers.  However, it may reduce the natural ability of our digestive system to do proper bowl movements if taken in outsized amounts.
