The Health Benefits of PGX
What if… You could feel good about eating again? Can you imagine developing a compound that safely balances blood sugar levels, reduces insulin resistance, and promotes weight loss? Leading scientists have discovered that PGX, a novel functional fibre complex developed using the proprietary EnviroSimplex® process, can safely help people balance their blood sugar levels and lose weight. Many people who are overweight are affected by what we call the “blood sugar roller coaster” where blood sugar rises and falls dramatically before and after meals. Over time, this can lead to insulin resistance and weight gain, among other things. When taken with meals, PGX slows digestion, helping control and balance blood sugar levels, which reduces food cravings. PGX also provides a feeling of fullness, allowing you to eat smaller portions and feel full longer. PGX MAKES EVERY DIET WORK Better! “PGX makes every diet work better,” explains Dr. Michael Lyon, Medical Director of the Canadian Centre for Functional Medicine, where PGX has been tested in several weight loss programs. “We added PGX to the diets of 120 people with greatly varied eating habits. 96% of them lost weight by simply adding PGX to what they were eating, along with other simple lifestyle recommendations. This is great news for anyone who wants to lose weight.” The fundamental law of weight loss is “consume fewer calories than you burn”. With PGX you eat less because PGX controls your APPETITE. You WILL consume less (fewer calories) and the best part is that you WON’T be hungry! PGX: Benefits Beyond Fibre PGX (PolyGlycopleX) is a 100% natural plant-derived polysaccharide complex. When consumed with food or water, it expands in the digestive tract, where it slows the digestion and absorption of foods, changing their glycemic index. Blood sugar levels don’t spike. Metabolism is improved. Less energy is stored as fat. Since nutrients enter the bloodstream more slowly, you feel full and satisfied much longer. PGX not only reduces appetite and curbs cravings, it also moderates your metabolism so you don’t regain the weight you’ve lost. PGX: The result of intensive clinical research PGX is the result of more than a decade of research. A weight management program at the Canadian Centre for Functional Medicine showed PGX can reduce after-meal blood sugar levels and improve insulin sensitivity. In this program, 97% of weight loss subjects reported that PGX significantly reduced their appetite and eliminated food cravings, making it easy to reduce portion sizes and lose weight comfortably. Another PGX Miracle – Control Your Sugar Highs! GI stands for glycemic index, the relative speed at which a food is turned into sugar by the body, causing your blood sugar levels to rise either quickly (high GI) or more slowly (low GI). PGX can virtually turn high GI foods – the ones that cause sugar spikes and create body fat – into lower GI foods! An example is: White Bread: GI 100, White Bread with PGX: GI 75! WEIGHT LOSS = 90% CALORIE REDUCTION + 10% EXERCISE Exercise is great for morale, muscle tone, and cardiovascular and respiratory health, but research shows that aerobic exercise isn’t the key to weight loss! A study at the George Washington University Medical Center revealed that diet and aerobic exercise together provided only a 3% increase in weight loss compared to diet alone. And with PGX reducing calorie intake is MUCH easier.
