Why Your Heart Needs More Fiber

FabOverFifty is a sponsored Meta Influencer, but all opinions are its own. Please see additional disclosures, below.

February is American Heart Month, a time when all women should recognize that heart disease is the leading cause of death for women in the United States. More specifically, it’s responsible for one in every four deaths of women, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). That’s a figure no wise woman should ignore!

Metamucil is the #1 doctor recommended fiber brand. Its fiber supplement, made from psyllium husk, helps promote heart health by lowering cholesterol. Since less than 5 percent of Americans get enough fiber in the foods we eat, it’s high time to consider supplementing our diets with this important ingredient. The 4-in-1 MultiHealth Fiber comes in a sugar-free, powder that can be mixed into a cup of cool water or another cold beverage like iced tea.  

Another product from the makers of Metamucil, Meta Appetite Control, has other health benefits, including helping us to feel less hungry between meals*, and helping you “break up” with daily snack cravings.

To help understand what triggers your hunger, it’s helpful to take a look at your snacking habits. Make sure to complete the fun Meta Snack ID Quiz on POPSUGAR, created by Meta Appetite Control Dietary Supplement and Jessica Fishman Levinson, registered dietitian and nutritionist. Once you know your “snacker profile,” you can follow Jessica’s recommendations on how to improve your snacking habits

When Geri Brin, founder of FabOverFifty took the quiz, she learned that she’s a Stressed-Out Snacker. She decided to incorporate Metamucil fiber into her diet to curb her between-meals craving and support her overall health. Her cravings are controlled when the natural fiber forms a gel in her digestive system, which slows down absorption and digestion and helps give her a “full” feeling. It helps stop Geri from impulsively reaching for the snacks she always regrets eating later  by helping suppress her appetite between meals.*
