No: Metamucil (http://www.metawellness.com/en-us/articles/about-metamucil/digestive-health) is a brand of fiber. Don't fall for the advertising. Instead, eat plenty of fruit, veggies & unrefined whole grains, enough to consume 35-45g daily. Check out http://www.webmd.com/drugs/2/drug-13722/metamucil-oral/details for more info. And http://goo.gl/8iAEA3 for info re dietary fiber in general.
