      If you’re like me the desire to be “regular” is strong. Particular as you age your body begins to show the signs of just how important this is. At the age of 31 I feel it’s time for me to pay more attention to my health and ensuring my body is more efficient by making sure my organ systems work as properly as possible.

      This led me to trying “Metamucil” Capsules. Well after trying these capsules for two weeks I can


      honestly say these capsules aren’t for everyone, at least they weren’t for me.

      Metamucil capsules truly made my “tummy” feel horrible. They gave me stomach cramps and a bloating sensation. Not only that, but upon taking these capsules it took a day or two for the expected results to occur. In fact I seem to be more “regular” without them.

        Metamucil is made from psyllium husk which is a bulking agent and that’s exactly what it does within your intestines before evacuation.

        I wrote this review to advise people of the possible adverse side-effects of this fiber supplement, because just like any other pill or medication taken orally, once it enters your body you must wait for any side effects to subside. And the misery I felt for the two weeks taking this product is enough to spread the word.
