- Bioclinic Naturals PGX Daily Ultra Matrix, PGX (PolyGlycopleX) is a highly viscous combination of water-soluble polysaccharides derived from konjac root, sodium alginate, and xantham gum.
- Viscous fibers have been shown to reduce postprandial glucose concentrations and lower total and LDL cholesterol, primarily by forming a gel matrix which slows gastric emptying.
- (1, 2) Viscous fibers also trap ingested carbohydrates and lipids inside the gel matrix, decreasing the transport and uptake of glucose and cholesterol at absorptive surfaces.
- Clinical trials have shown that in addition to the benefits of glucose and lipid reduction, highly viscous fibers were found to lower insulin secretion and C-peptide in response to carbohydrate meals, and also improve glucose tolerance.
- (3, 4) Viscous fibers effectively reduce the glycemic index of foods consumed simultaneously by preventing the postprandial spikes in blood glucose concentration.
- (5, 6) Fiber viscosity has been associated with increased satiety and reduced appetite; in a randomized trial, PGX reduced hunger and prospective consumption when combined with a low calorie diet, and in an earlier trial enhanced weight loss and reduced percent body fat when used in concert with lifestyle changes.
- (7, 8) PGX‘s viscosity is greater than other known sources of soluble fiber, allowing for easier dosing and greater efficacy for its diverse benefits.
- PGX is the most clinically studied and proven polysaccharide complex.
- Proven safe; without the side effects of prescription or over-the-counter medications.
- Ultra Matrix delivery system ensures rapid dispersal and action of PGX.
- Proprietary complex contains three viscous natural polysaccharides that together provide higher viscosity than any other known fiber.
- Medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) help increase metabolism and may help improve blood-glucose-related disorders.
