PGX (PolyGlycopleX) Daily Granules Fiber Unflavored by Bioclinic Naturals is an unsweetened highly viscous combination of well purified 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. These viscous granules also trap ingested carbohydrates and lipids inside the gel matrix, decreasing the transport as well as the 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. Viscous fibers effectively reduce the glycemic index of foods consumed simultaneously, by preventing the postprandial spikes in blood glucose concentration. Fiber viscosity has also 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. PGX Daily Granules allow for easy dosing, with 5 g of PGX per scoop, and are unflavored to allow mixing with a variety of beverages and foods.

Begin with 1 scoop and gradually increase over several days as tolerated. Up to 1 scoop 3 times per day may be required in some cases, or take as directed by your healthcare practitioner. Use consistently with or without meals or with healthy snacks to obtain the desired results.
Take other medications one hour prior to or two hours after taking PGX. If your goal is to achieve weight loss, or if you are diabetic or on cholesterol lowering medications, consult your healthcare practitioner prior to use.
Serving Option: PGX Daily Granules are unflavoured and can also be sprinkled onto any moist food, yogurt, fruit salad, oatmeal, soup, low-calorie beverage or meal replacement.
Consult your healthcare practitioner prior to use if you are under 18 years of age, are pregnant or nursing, or have any health concerns. A reduction in serum glucose concentrations by PGX may require a lowering of the dosage of any antidiabetic medications, and serum glucose should be monitored closely to prevent hypoglycemia. Oral medications may need to be taken one hour prior or two hours after PGX, to prevent a slowing down in their absorption. Similarly, fat-soluble vitamins should be taken separately.
