Metamucil is psyllium and natrual--you can get psyllium in caps or powder and the Wal Mart brand is cheaper.

Citrucel is a semisynthetic fiber (Methylcellulose) that does not breakdown by intestinal bacteria so it does not produce much gas or flatulence.

I use Equate from Wal Mart.Both require water since they are water soluble fiber supplements.
