Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose Health Benefits | Gundry MD

What Is Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose?

Luckily, when scientists and researchers refer to hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, they use the abbreviation HPMC. HPMC consists of modified cellulose dietary fibers. Cellulose is made up of natural, insoluble plant fibers that act as a dietary fiber and can produce viscous substances within your gastrointestinal tract.1

You may find hydroxypropyl methylcellulose in several pharmaceutical products. It’s an advantageous ingredient because it is both tasteless and odorless. It’s also usually white or off-white.2

As far as texture goes, HPMC can be either granular or fibrous. It has a powdery consistency, which makes it easy for food manufacturers to use. Also, the FDA has approved HPMC, and reviews say it can be utilized as a direct and indirect additive in food products.3

Potential Health Benefits of Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose

Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose is a non-fermentable dietary fiber.7  More specifically, hydroxypropyl and methylcellulose are modified cellulose dietary fibers, and they do generate specific viscous solutions in your GI tract.8† 

Furthermore, hydroxypropyl methylcellulose has a long safety record in the U.S. It’s recognized by the Food and Drug Administration as safe to consume up to 20 grams a day. Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose supplements may help support healthy cholesterol levels already within a normal range.9

Of course, taking in dietary fiber is associated with other health benefits as well. Dietary fiber such as hydroxypropyl methylcellulose may help support healthy intestinal function.10
