Daily dose of psyllium husk can help lower cholesterol levels
Posted by Fleur Revell
For more than 70 years, psyllium husk has been the primary source of both soluble and insoluble fibre in Metamucil, and clinical studies show that just 7 grams of fibre may help to further lower cholesterol.
Psyllium husk works with the body’s natural detox process to aid the removal of toxins from your digestive system. Clinical studies have shown that 7 grams of soluble fibre from psyllium husk, as found in Metamucil, taken daily as part of a heart-healthy diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may lower cholesterol. Reductions in cholesterol may contribute to reducing the risk of heart disease.
Make Metamucil part of your daily routine and you can improve your inner health in five important ways:
- Helps maintain healthy cholesterol levels
- Cleanses your insides
- Assists your body’s natural toxin removal process
- Helps you feel lighter
- Helps you feel more active
