I eat high fiber foods - beans, whole grains, fruits and veggies. Metamucil made me feel sick to my stomach when I tried it. My husband, mom and brother all take it though. So, maybe it's just me! 😄

I hate to make the subject about it, but for regularity I take prebiotic. It also helps with getting sick, as 80% of our immune system is from our gut. We are more prone to catching illness

Trick is don't take every day. I take a week and stop a week.

Fiber is slow digesting, which means slower stomach.

Gastroparesis.

I copy and paste

Yes, Metamucil can slow down gastric emptying. Metamucil is a fiber supplement that contains psyllium husk, which dissolves in water and forms a gel that slows digestion. When combined with water, Metamucil powder thickens and forms a gel that pushes against the stomach walls, making you feel full between meals.

what's gastro p?

And what??? It slows down the emptying of the stomach?! I don't like that. I was asking about it because I seen it helps with cholesterol.

You said it's a gel??? I thought it was a powdered drink?

What does that mean it delays the absorption of sugars?
