My 57 year old mother is wondering if it is ok for her to take meta mucil multi fiber powder everyday since she is constipated and also if she is not?

In brief: Metamucil

I would recommend Metamucil daily.
It gives you enough fiber a day to help with constipation. I also recommend prune juice for breakfast as this can very much help with constipation naturally.
