i have a question.  i have never been regular with my bowl movements,
until six months ago.  i started taken metimucil, and thing worked out
great.  but i noticed in the list of ingredients that it contains added
phenylalanine.  is there any danger in taking this on a regular basis.
what exactly is phenylalanine, and can it be harmful.

Phenylalanine is an amino acid. I am not sure why it would be in
metamucil. Its d- form is a pain reliever and its l- form is an appetite
suppressant, stimulant and antidepressant. The only possible problem
with moderate amounts would be if you have high {*filter*} pressure or
cancer.
