How would you like to control your blood sugar, reduce your appetite and promote effective weight loss? Sound too good to be true?

Today I’d like to share one of my favorite clinically studied supplements that has shown the ability to do all of the above. In fact, this same supplement has been featured by both Dr. Oz and Dr. Michael Murray as scientifically validated options to manage weight. Our in-store dietitian Nicole Gould RD, LD has used this product with her clients for years calling it, “The most consistently effective supplement I’ve seen.” So what is this mysterious wonder supplement? Fiber.

Now, it’s a very specific patented form of fiber called PolyGlycopleX (PGX), but it is fiber nonetheless, making it a very safe option for anyone looking to achieve results.

Here’s how it works. PGX is a complex of natural supersoluble nonstarch polysaccharides (fiber).  Taken before a meal, PGX absorbs several hundred times its weight in water, thus adding substantially to the volume of your meal without adding any additional calories. This makes you feel fuller. Bottom line - you eat less.

Further, by mixing with food in the stomach, it increases the thickness or viscosity of your meal, slowing gastric emptying, prolonging the digestion and absorption of any food (including carbohydrates).  This in turn helps normalize blood sugar levels and insulin secretion.

Clinically, participants in a University of Toronto study lowered their after-meal blood glucose levels by 23% and reduced body fat by 2.8% after taking PGX for 3 weeks. The research also suggests PGX increases the level of important appetite reducing peptides and hormones.

Bottom line, if you take PGX with each meal, you will be able to eat less and feel more satisfied. For more on how to choose the right PGX product (there are several) please stop in.
