Anyway, for quite a while I have battled some intestinal issues. They haven't been bad enough (since college, at least) to see a doctor, but they haven't exactly been pleasant. (I am trying to go into as few details as possible here, but you should hear the thoughts rambling around in my brain right now. Again, you're welcome.)
Let's just say the "runners' trots" were hitting me pretty much all. the. time.
But I digress. When I started this whole healthy-living thing, I also started taking some supplements: a multivitamin (in chewable form), fish oil (in horse pill form), and....wait for it...Metamucil.
But let me tell you: it is ah-maze-ing. I feel so much better when I take Metamucil daily, and I can totally tell when I've missed a dose. I just feel so much...cleaner....when I take it regularly.
And there's no doubt why. The health benefits are fab: containing 100% natural psyllium fiber, Metamucil is clinically proven to help lower cholesterol, making it not only good for your digestive system but also for your heart and overall well-being.
But now for the nitty-gritty (literally): Metamucil does not taste wonderful. I have to constantly stir, stir, stir so that it does not clump up in the glass of water. (It's probably not good that I try to choke down two huge capsules of fish oil at the same time, but oh well: kills two birds with one stone.) And I'm not going to lie: I use my chewable vitamins as motivation to gulp the whole drink down. Seriously. They taste like gummy bears. And, apparently I'm like five.
Despite how much I abhor actually drinking the stuff, it is OH. SO. WORTH IT.
And now, dear readers, I will leave you with a funny. One of my friends/colleagues and I are
Back to our regularly scheduled postings - complete with my boring workout regime and food diary - tomorrow. Until then, know that I stayed on track with my diet today but did not work out due to a previous commitment. (This was planned, so don't yell at me.)
What's the grossest (or most beneficial) supplement you've ever tried? Care to share any dookie dissertations with the rest of us, or is that just something I find appropriate to discuss?
