PGX™ - A Revolutionary FibreComplex

PGX Fibre Blend binds to the water in the digestive tract to form a gelatinous, viscous mass which slows glucose absorption and creates a sense of satiety (fullness) while reducing the absorption of calories

This impressive PGX Blend, short for PolyGlycopleX, exerts 3 to 5 times the effects of other fibers.

PGX:
• lowers postprandial blood glucose by 20%
• lowers insulin secretion by 40%
• improves whole body insulin sensitivity by 50%
• is unequalled by any drug or natural product

PGX capsules also contain an extract of mulberry leaves, shown to diminish after-meal spikes in glucose and insulin, by blocking certain enzymes that break down starches and sugars in the body.

What is Diabetes?

The most prevalent form of the disease is TYPE II diabetes.  In this type, the person’s pancreas is unable to produce enough insulin to metabolize the amount of sugar that they are ingesting. A diet high in refined carbohydrates and nutrient deficiency are large contributing factors to “age onset diabetes”, as it is often called; excess body weight, lack of exercise, and heredity also often play significant roles when a person develops diabetes. The symptoms of diabetes often sneak up on people over time usually beginning mildly, then progressively becoming more severe.  They include:  fatigue, “brain fog”, thirst, constant hunger, excessive urination, weight gain, and general malaise.  Complicating things for the diabetic is a fluctuation between too much sugar in the blood and low blood sugar (hypoglycemia).  Hypoglycemia often creates seemingly uncontrollable and powerful cravings for sweet foods which, when satisfied, causes low blood sugar to swing back to excess sugar
.

What is Hypoglycemia?

Hypoglycemia is the result of faulty sugar metabolism. Typically the hypoglycemic will often have seemingly uncontrollable cravings for carbohydrates, and an equally seeming uncontrollable fatigue - especially in the early afternoon. Blood sugar levels must be maintained within a specific range for optimal functioning of your whole body – for both your body and your brain.  Without a healthy level of sugar your body loses power, and your brain gives you a message (in the form of a craving) to eat more sugar.  When you do, your energy is increased, but only temporarily.  The surge in sugars causes your pancreas to secrete a large quantity of insulin to metabolism the sugars you just ate, which often causes your blood sugar to drop again.  This is the yo-yoing effect that hypoglycemics often feel - from high energy to low energy.  Complicating matters is something called insulin resistance, which is when the body becomes tolerant to the level of insulin your pancreas produces,  resulting in its inability to digest and absorb carbohydrates effectively.  This may eventually lead to diabetes.  Insulin resistance can be caused by ingesting too much refined sugar, or by a chromium deficiency.\

Support Healthy Blood Sugar Levels By:

Consuming high complex carbohydrate vegetables & fruit 
Consuming a high fiber diet at least 35-50 grams daily
Consume high, quality lean proteins
Maintain a healthy weight
Avoid sugar and refined foods
Take a chromium supplement
Make sure to get enough essential fats
Control stress with yoga, tai chi, mediation
Avoid coffee and other stimulants
Take a high quality multivitamin and mineral

4 out of 5 stars This product worked but found other products that worked the same
by Mason from Alberta on 24/5/2011
Recommends it to Friends: No
This product did the exact same job as the other Konjac Root supplements I take. The only difference was that I paid triple the price for this supplement, then I did with the others. I ended up saving tons of money going with other Konjac Root supplements then PGX and I am very glad I did.

5 out of 5 stars PGX is Fantastic
by Geri from Ontario, Canada on 15/4/2011
Recommends it to Friends: Yes
I was diagnosed last summer with Type II Diabetes. I have been managing it without meds but could find nothing to control the spikes and crashes. Not only am I able to manage my sugar levels but I am losing weight and feeling energized. I highly recommend this for anyone with Type II.
