WellBetX Nutritional Family of Glucose Management Products

Updated Aug. 23, 2010, about 12 years ago

The WellBetX Program is a family of nutritional and herbal products that address the nutritional requirements of people with diabetes and pre-diabetes. Formulated by the Natural Factors Science Team led by Dr. Michael Murray to help restore the body’s sensitivity to insulin, lower insulin levels, balance blood sugar, eliminate food cravings, and control appetite.

Benefits of WellBetX Glucose Management Products:

Research has shown that obesity is linked to Type 2 diabetes and pre-diabetic conditions known as Syndrome X or Metabolic Syndrome. In addition to the proper management of blood sugar, WellBetX products can help you reduce the absorption of sugar, speed the burning of excess fat and facilitate weight loss.

The WellBetX Program should be used in conjunction with recognized diet, lifestyle, and medical treatments used to improve the lives of people with diabetes or pre-diabetes. WellBetX products do not “treat” diabetes but support the body’s optimum utilization of blood glucose and insulin. In addition, WellBetX can address some of the nutritional challenges that accompany diabetes. Optimal nutrition and effective blood sugar control are essential for prevention of the major complications of diabetes. It is recommended to ask your doctor how WellBetX products can fit into your health regime.

We encourage anyone with diabetes or pre-diabetes to read the book How to Prevent and Treat Diabetes with Natural Medicine written by Michael Murray, N.D. and Michael Lyon, M.D. The book will provide you with in-depth information on diet, lifestyle and supplementation strategies, as well as additional guidance that can benefit anyone with diabetes.

WellBetX® Glucose Management for People with Diabetes and Pre-diabetes

If You Have Type 1 or Type 2 Diabetes WellBetX products will provide essential nutritional support to enhance your overall health including a clinically proven product to help you lose weight.

Amazing Weight Control Breakthrough

The revolutionary ingredient that makes WellBetX Meal Replacement Drink Mix such an effective weight loss product is the unique soluble fiber blend PGX. PGX is a highly purified fiber blend, processed using advanced proprietary EnviroSimplex™ technology. PGX is the result of many years of extensive clinical and laboratory research at the University of Toronto, and in collaboration with the Canadian Center for Functional Medicine. When blended with water, the WellBetX Meal Replacement Drink Mix initially creates a smooth appealing texture. Once ingested, PGX continues to thicken and gently expand for a few hours as it absorbs water. To avoid dehydration, it is important to drink plenty of water with PGX. By gently expanding in the stomach and intestine, PGX keeps the appetite under control for several hours and provides a sense of fullness. The viscosity (thickness) and expansion of PGX are greater than any other fiber or fiber blend ever studied.

PGX’s superior viscosity and resultant physiological effects are the result of its unique blend. The best selected konjac (glucomannan) is mixed, with other water soluble fibers in a highly specific ratio, using a unique proprietary process, to produce PGX. This process increases the viscosity of the original material by 3 to 5 times. PGX thickens relatively slowly after mixing with water, achieving its maximum viscosity after 60 – 90 minutes. This means that when PGX is used in a meal replacement drink, it remains palatable when mixed, developing its full viscosity later in the stomach and small intestine where it is then able to reduce appetite, control blood sugar, insulin levels and reduce cholesterol. PGX was formulated to maintain its highly viscous properties even under the influence of stomach acid and digestive enzymes. Unlike many fiber containing foods, PGX does not lose its gel-like viscosity in the stomach or intestinal tract.

PGX™: Controlling Appetite and Hormone Release

PGX slowly absorbs about 6 times its weight in water, resulting in a high volume of food material that provides a lasting sense of fullness. Studies show that a sense of fullness in the stomach causes the release of a signaling hormone called “CCK” which alerts the brain that the stomach is full and the person should stop eating. When PGX is taken before a meal, or as a meal replacement, a sense of fullness develops quickly. At the University of Toronto, studies showed that rapidly following ingestion of PGX the body released significant amounts of CCK. In this way PGX sends a strong signal to stop eating. Later, when PGX is in the intestine, it remains highly volumetric and viscous, delaying the return of hunger pangs, making it easier for overweight individuals to cut back on food intake.

When adequate doses of PGX are taken (2.5-5 grams per dose), it can also significantly slow digestion and absorption of carbohydrates, helping to lower the glycolic index of any food when it is eaten with PGX.2 For more information on glycolic index and glycemic load, read How to Prevent and Treat Diabetes with Natural Medicine, by Michael Murray, N.D. and Michael Lyon, M.D.

PGX™: An Effective Solution for Insulin Resistance

PGX may be the most effective solution for insulin resistance ever discovered! Research presented at the 64th Annual Scientific Session of the American Diabetes Association demonstrates that in overweight, insulin resistant subjects, PGX lowered after-meal blood glucose by approximately 20% and also lowered insulin secretion by approximately 40%, producing a whole body insulin sensitivity index improvement of nearly 50%. Because insulin sensitivity is restored, when PGX is used regularly hypoglycemic cravings are eliminated and reducing food intake becomes a much more achievable goal.

PGX™: Positive Cholesterol Control

Two studies showed that consumption of this fiber blend significantly reduced total and LDL-cholesterol. This effect could be compared with the cholesterol lowering effect of a modest dose of potent cholesterol lowering medication (“statin” drugs). It is reasonable to say that the results achieved with the fiber blend are complementary to the effect of drugs, since patients were kept on their regular cholesterol lowering medication throughout the entire length of the study.2, 3 A study using PGX on individuals who suffered from Metabolic Syndrome, Syndrome X, showed that patients who consumed PGX, considerably improved their overall metabolic control by reducing insulin resistance. This was demonstrated by reductions in total-cholesterol, LDL-cholesterol, total/HDL-cholesterol, LDL/HDL-cholesterol and apolipoprotein A/B ratio. There was also an improvement in long term sugar metabolism (~5% decrease in serum Fructosamine). “PGX is the only fiber blend to show improved metabolic control in individuals with the Metabolic Syndrome/ Syndrome X.
