PGX® is short for PolyGlycoplex®, a highly purified fiber complex that has been shown in clinical trials to slow the digestion of carbohydrates and increase the feeling of fullness. PGX is not a diet, but does support healthy weight management by helping to control appetite, manage food cravings, and promotes healthy blood sugar and cholesterol levels already within a normal range.†^

PGX Daily is Changing Lives
The Key to Weight Loss is to get your Appetite Under Control
Years of research involving thousands of participants has shown that PGX can have a positive impact on something that affects almost everyone: blood sugar levels.† Regulating blood sugar is a key factor in many health conditions, including weight gain. Most people gain weight gradually, adding five or ten pounds every decade. Making a healthy change to our eating habits is not easy for many of us. Incorporating PGX into your diet can help you lose weight safely and gradually, even if you are not ready to make other positive diet and lifestyle changes at first.† Naturally, the beneficial effects of PGX will be greatly enhanced by a healthy diet and exercise, leading to incredible results.
What to Expect from PGX
•Reduces appetite and promotes effective weight loss naturally†
•Lowers the glycemic index of any food or meal consumed†
•Promotes healthy blood sugar levels already within the normal range†^
•Supports healthy cholesterol levels†^
•Great with ALL weight management programs†
•Safe, natural, and stimulant-free
Research has shown that people who gain weight often spend much of their day on a “blood sugar roller coaster,” with blood sugar alternately surging and plummeting, leaving them tired or irritable and leading to frequent and unhealthy food cravings. Eating the wrong foods (especially high glycemic index foods) magnifies the problem, but the underlying cause is insulin resistance, a condition where insulin is released after meals, but the body fails to respond appropriately.
Research has shown that PGX may help restore insulin sensitivity and get you off the blood sugar roller coaster.† PGX is a unique complex of naturally occurring, water-soluble polysaccharides (dietary fibers) and is the result of years of extensive clinical and laboratory research at leading universities in collaboration with the Canadian Centre for Functional Medicine.
PGX is an amazing nutritional ingredient shown to promote healthy blood sugar management by slowing digestion and reducing the glycemic index of meals.†^
The Glycemic Index and How PGX Balances Blood Sugar
Glycemic Index (GI) is a way of indicating how fast a particular food is turned into energy by the body. High GI foods are digested quickly and raise blood sugar fast (like white rice, potatoes, or pancakes). Low GI foods, such as apples, lentils, or spinach, are converted to glucose more slowly. PGX slows down the rate at which all food is digested, lowering after-meal blood sugar and virtually lowering the glycemic index of any food.
When taken before or with meals, the PGX complex increases both the volume and viscosity of food because it is able to bind water more effectively than any other known fiber. When consumed, PGX expands in the stomach and thickens to form a gelatinous mass that slows stomach emptying and prevents the rapid digestion and absorption of carbohydrates, resulting in a lower and more stable blood sugar response. It also produces a tremendous sensation of being full by reducing the level of compounds that block appetite.†
As a result, PGX works to promote a feeling of appetite satisfaction (satiety) and thereby reduces caloric intake making achieving your ideal body weight nearly effortless.
The viscosity of PGX is three to five times higher than any other known viscous (or gel-like) fiber. The physiological effects and overall health benefits to human health of a soluble fiber are directly proportionate to its viscosity.
PGX addresses cholesterol by increasing the excretion rate of blood cholesterol.† The liver packages the cholesterol into bile acids and sends them to the small intestine for fat breakdown.
From there, the cholesterol finds its way to the bloodstream and where health problems can occur. But soluble fiber, like PGX, binds with some of these cholesterol-containing bile acids when they arrive in the small intestine, and quickly moves them out of the body.†
