VitaMucil

VitaMucil is a whole food fiber supplement that provides a gentle cleansing effect on the digestive tract.  It contains ingredients that have been proven to naturally help support healthy cholesterol levels already within normal values. It works by gently sweeping the walls of the digestive tract to release unwanted built-up debris. This formula is a convenient way to boost your fiber as people often don’t get enough.  VitaMucil fiber supplement can help support regularity and healthy bowel function.  It is used to support weight loss programs because it helps to create a feeling of fullness, or satiety, especially when taken with a full glass of water, about 30 minutes before a meal. VitaMucil provides a water soluble dietary fiber, that provides roughage, important as a bulk agent and for supporting healthy digestion.

WHAT IS IN VITAMUCIL FIBER SUPPLEMENTS?

VitaMucil contains ultra-fine psyllium seed husk, the most beneficial portion of the psyllium plant as a soluble fiber source in a vegetarian capsule.

WHAT IS NOT IN VITAMUCIL?

VitaMucil does not contain any synthetic fillers, colors, sweeteners, gluten, casein, preservatives, soy or dairy. VitaMucil psyllium fiber is in convenient, easy to swallow vegetarian capsules. No mixing with messy powders required and it does not contain colors or sweeteners like many other fiber supplements. VitaMucil fiber supplements is very portable and easy to take anywhere!

WHY DO WE NEED FIBER?

Fiber helps to regulate the transit time of the stool. You can determine your transit time by eating something that will show up visibly in the stool like kernels of corn or beets. Take note of the time between eating the food and when it appears in the stool. A normal transit time is approximately 24 hours. If it takes longer than this, your stool is not moving through the body fast enough.

There are two types of fiber, both insoluble and soluble. The following chart gives examples of each type of fiber.

Soluble fiber foods

  • (Pectins, gums, mucilages, hemi-celluloses)
  • Supports fermentation in GI tract
  • Supports cholesterol absorption and excretion

Insoluble fiber foods

  • (Cellulose and hemi-cellulose)
  • Bulking agent and supports healthy digestion
  • Apples
  • Bananas
  • Oranges
  • Potatoes
  • Cabbage
  • Carrots
  • Grapes
  • Oatmeal
  • Oatbran
  • Sesame seeds
  • Flaxseeds

This is a fantastic bulking fiber! I find opening up the capsules & mixing in juice or diluted with warm water, makes it easy to drink, and keeps me nicely regular. Drink quickly, as it will expand as it absorbs the liquid.

If you aren't used to taking bulking fibers, which expand in your stomach, start slow -- maybe at first, working your way up to 4 capsules a day.

FYI, this product can lower cholesterol, control blood sugar (use before a meal), lose weight and regulate bowels!!!

VitaMucil is part of my daily diet routine!

We keep coming back to VitaTree time and time again for only one reason and that is, the quality of the VitaMucil product as advertised. My husband and I love this fiber and it adds just the right amount of bulk which aids in elimination.

We also get automated delivery that I can depend on. I won't shop anywhere else.

I know some people don't like to drink the thicker whole husks when mixed with choice of liquid, but the WHOLE psyllium husks in capsule form from VitaTree are much preferred and work best for us! We would never go back to powdered psyllium. (Although you can open these up too). Please keep it in your extensive inventory.

Was watching the shopping channel the other day and discovered this product- VitaMucil! It is for anyone who has difficulty with regularity and/or to help lose weight! VitaMucil is easy to use too, I put it in my morning smoothie simply by opening up the capsules! Sometimes I just take 2 capsules before my meals twice a day. Awesome!
