I haven't had problems with constipation, exactly the opposite. It's counter-intuitive to say taking a laxative will help, but Metamucil helps my problems with loose bowels. I take it every day, a quarter cup of the powder into 16 oz of cold water, down the hatch. It keeps the bad stuff at bay.

Instead of terrible bouts with loose bowels, the fiber keeps things solid without constipating me. I know, gross, but it's really a life saver and I can't believe I am the only one to suffer this way.

I had my gall bladder out a year ago, which just made things worse. Now any fatty food just flies through me. Taking Metamucil once a day makes a world of difference. I still shy away from fatty foods, but I don't get the pain and cramping if I take this.

Plus it keeps my cholesterol levels low.

It definitely works as intended, but I don't love the taste--sort of like bad Tang. My main issue with this, though, is the Yellow 6 dye it contains. A friend of mine warned me that this dye is relatively new to the food industry, and that it might be carcinogenic. As a result I stopped feeding my kids Kraft mac & cheese (junk anyway). However, I never thought to check the label when I purchased this. I'll finish it, but I won't repurchase, I'll find a dye-free variety next time. Keep in mind, I'm no expert on food safety, but I'm also not much of a risk-taker, and if I can avoid this dye, well, it's sort of a no-brainer.

Careful: it is full of sugar

Comments about Metamucil MultiHealth Fiber Texture Powder Supplement, Orange Smooth, 48.2 oz:

I actually returned the product, but I still think it is reasonable to write a review. I returned it after finding that it isn't a regular fiber supplement, but instead very high in sugar.

    Comments about Metamucil MultiHealth Fiber Texture Powder Supplement, Orange Smooth, 48.2 oz:

    I use two to three teaspoons in a small glass of water or tonic water or soda nightly to prevent infections in the diverticuli pockets which are throughout my entire colon. No other fiber product can do what Metamucil with its psycillium is able to do, which is draw out the contents of those pockets and carry it away.

      The orange metamucil is ok but I much prefer the original smooth, beige colored metamucil which you no longer carry.

        My doctor recommended this product some time ago because I was not getting enough fiber. I take it every morning in a glass of juice. I prefer the one that is not sugar free because it doesn't thicken as quickly as the regular one.
