A 28-year-old male asked:
I'm taking metamucil (psyllium fiber) for regularity - how much is the maximum one can take per day?

2 scoops with 64 oz: WATER. Metamucil is not absorbed in the body but it adsorbs water and forms bulk in your Large Intestine. So you need to drink water- lots of water other wise you can very Hard stool
