Polyglycoplex (PGX) is an extremely viscous and water soluble, super fiber that has been recognized for its ability to promote weight-loss. It was discovered by Dr. David Jenkins and his team at the University of Toronto. Research has indicated that five grams (3/16 oz) of PGX will absorb one liter (35.2 oz) of water. Polyglycoplex is approximately 5-6 times more soluble than any other dietary fiber discovered. PGX contains glucomannan, a soluble fiber from the root of konjac. Glucomannan is 3 times more viscous than guar and 7 times more viscous than psyllium. PGX can absorb 600 times its own weight in water.

Benefits

Blood Sugar

PGX is a valuable tool for helping to manage blood sugar levels and insulin sensitivity. PGX lowers postprandial blood glucose in the body by 20%. It also decreases the bodys insulin secretion by 40%. PGX improves whole body insulin sensitivity by 50%, which is unparalleled by any other product on the market.

Weight-Loss

Polyglycoplex works in a couple ways to effectively help promote weight-loss. PGX can be taken with water prior to meals to suppress appetite. It will adequately reduce feelings of hunger and diminish food cravings, making it easier to manage food portions and not overeat. The fiber in PGX stimulates more regular bowel movements. PGX will also lower the bodys absorption of carbohydrates, sugars, and other nutrients. Consequently, PGX reduces the amount of calories the body is absorbing, which encourages weight loss. It has also been found to lower cholesterol levels.

Polyglycoplex was featured on the Oprah Winfrey show during a segment with Dr. Mehmet OZ as a healthful way to promote weight loss and glean good fiber content.

Side Effects

PGX has been found to be safe as a supplement for fiber and weight loss. However, PGX so effectively suppresses appetite that it can almost completely eliminate feelings of hunger in people who are not obese or overweight. Only a few grams per day is needed to achieve weight-loss results. Although, PGX taken in higher doses can significantly reduce appetite in the heaviest of people. In addition, PGX inhibits the absorption of sugars, fats, and ALL other nutrients. Therefore, it is highly recommended that people taking Polyglycoplex should also take a good, whole foods based multivitamin to ensure proper nutrition is being achieved. Check out Alive! Multivitamin Whole Food Energizer for the best in nutritional supplementation.

It is not a meal replacement, but does diminish appetite. WellBetX PGX capsules by Natural Factors provide a quality option for attaining fiber content in an easy, pill form.
