Natural Factors-WellBetX® PGX® Ultra Matrix Plus Mulberry® 180 SG
Natural Factors WellBetX PGX Fiber 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. A key component of PGX is glucomannan, a soluble fiber from the root of konjac. It is 3 times more viscous than guar and 7 times more viscous than psyllium. With this, and the other components it contains, PGX has a viscosity 3 to 5 times greater than glucomannan alone.
The PGX Program
When beginning the PGX program or any other weight loss program, it is important to remember that in order to lose weight, your body needs to burn more calories than it consumes. Exercise of course, increases the amount of calories burned in a day, helping to increase the amount of weight one can lose. Almost as important when trying to lose weight is decreasing the amount of calories that you consume, which can be difficult when your body keeps telling you to eat. PGX will help you to comfortably eat smaller portions and will help reduce appetite. If you have another diet in mind or are currently on a different program, go ahead and use PGX, it makes every diet work better.
Correcting Your Appetite
Scientific research has now proven that there is a link between blood sugar and appetite. When blood sugar levels go up and down many times throughout the day, it can signal the brain to eat many times. Blood sugar is important for health. Everyone needs the right amount of glucose (sugar) in their blood to maintain energy and power bodily functions. In fact, too little blood sugar can be dangerous and the brain responds by creating hunger signals we recognize as appetite. By eating, the body restores its blood sugar to appropriate levels - at least until the next drop triggers hunger again. PGX helps correct appetite by supporting healthy blood sugar levels.
