Description

 

 

Benefits

  • Regulates after meal blood glucose levels
  • Increases insulin sensitivity for less fat storage
  • High viscosity fibre complex
  • Sprinkle onto any moist food, low calorie beverage or meal replacement
  • Mixes easily in liquids — does not clump
  • Unflavoured—does not alter the taste of foods
  • Convenient and economical

PGX (PolyGlycopleX) granules are an unsweetened highly viscous combination of well purified water-soluble polysaccharides derived from konjac root, sodium alginate, and xantham gum. Viscous fibers have been shown to reduce postprandial glucose concentrations and lower total and LDL-cholesterol, primarily by forming a gel matrix which slows gastric emptying. These viscous granules also trap ingested carbohydrates and lipids inside the gel matrix, decreasing the transport as well as the uptake of glucose and cholesterol at absorptive surfaces.

Clinical trials have shown that in addition to the benefits of glucose and lipid reduction, highly viscous fibers were found to lower insulin secretion and C-peptide in response to carbohydrate meals, and also improve glucose tolerance. Viscous fibers effectively reduce the glycemic index of foods consumed simultaneously, by preventing the postprandial spikes in blood glucose concentration.5, 6 Fiber viscosity has also been associated with increased satiety and reduced appetite; in a randomized trial, PGX reduced hunger and prospective consumption when combined with a low calorie diet, and in an earlier trial enhanced weight loss and reduced percent body fat when used in concert with lifestyle changes.7, 8 PGX Daily Granules allow for easy dosing, with 5 g of PGX per scoop, and are unflavored to allow mixing with a variety of beverages and foods.

If your goal is to achieve weight loss, or if you are diabetic or on cholesterol lowering medications, consult a qualified health care professional prior to use.

Those with a known allergy to the fibres in PGX should avoid it. Individuals at risk for intestinal obstruction, such as those with systemic sclerosis, should increase fiber intake with caution.

A small percentage of people may initially experience minor digestive changes when taking PGX Daily. Slowly work up to the full dose to give your body time to adjust. It is important to drink adequate amounts of water (375–500 ml) immediately after taking PGX Daily.
