Post switching from Metamucil to fibre supplement

I feel that Metamucil is bloating me up too much and I went to the health food store and got some merbal fibre capsules. It contains psyllium and things such as black walnut and butternut bark. On the internet it said these j=herbs were laxatives, but I got an email from the company that said it was safe to take every day, but they didn't answer my question. Does any one know if it is safe to take these herbs from the health food store? The guy at the store said it would get rid of any parasites and cleanse the colon. He sells quite a few. It is expensive and I have to know that it is okay to take like metamucil.

Does your health food store have plain psyllium hulls? That is the active ingredient in Metamucil. Many places sell them with nothing added.
