PGX (PolyGlycopleX) is a non-starch polysaccharide (fibre) that has a very high water-absorbing capacity. When used with meals, PGX absorbs significant amounts of water, increasing the volume of the food you eat, quickly making you feel full, even when your food portions are smaller. Therefore, it is important to drink plenty of water when using PGX.
This prolongs the after-meal sense of fullness helps normalize blood sugar levels and insulin secretion. By levelling out your sugar absorption, you can eliminate the ?blood sugar roller coaster? - when food intake causes excess insulin to be secreted, later causing you to feel hungry due to blood sugar dropping, which then causes you to consume more food, which then causes more insulin secretion, etc. These ups and downs in blood sugar are hard on your body and make it very difficult to lose weight. PGX also increases food viscosity (its gel-like quality), which slows the rate that food is digested and absorbed.
Ongoing research and development involving PGX has led to the development of the PGX Daily Ultra Matrix softgel ? an advanced delivery system for superior results. The Ultra Matrix technology involves suspending PGX in an MCT-rich oil matrix (medium-chain triglycerides) derived from purified coconut oil. This matrix, when combined with stomach acid, disperses better than any other tested delivery system for soluble or insoluble fibre, including previous forms of PGX. Rapid dispersal substantially increases the potential of PGX Daily as the polysaccharides quickly attract water and thicken quickly providing a profound sense of fullness. This effect is referred to as ?acid-induced viscosity? and it begins within minutes of ingesting PGX Daily. For more information visit pgx.com
