Re: Soluble Fiber or Insoluble Fiber ... Which one?
Metamucil is mostly soluble fiber. It is a bulking agent and absorbs fluid.
A flat type stool usually indicates that you are taking mostly insoluble fiber. You need more soluble fiber that absorbs fluids
The question of Fiber keeps coming up so I wrote a post in the Sticky thread at the top of this page --"Information Archive" about fiber-- it is the last post-- It may be worst reading.
I like the powder form of fiber best because it is well dispersed in water when I drink it. But, others like the capsules better but they need to drink lots of water.
