The PGX® (PolyGlycopleX®) Weight Loss Meal Replacement promotes healthy weight loss by reducing postprandial hyperglycemia‚ increasing satiety‚ and providing supportive nutrients for blood sugar metabolism. PGX® is a highly viscous combination of well-purified water-soluble polysaccharides derived from konjac root‚ sodium alginate‚ and xantham gum‚ which has been shown to reduce postprandial glucose concentrations and lower total and LDL-cholesterol‚ primarily by forming a gel matrix which slows gastric emptying. Postprandial hyperglycemia is an important causal factor in endothelial dysfunction‚ several complications of diabetes‚ and overweight. By reducing the glycemic index of foods‚ viscous fibers prevent postprandial spikes in blood glucose concentration and in insulin production. They have also been found to increase satiety and reduce appetite‚ promoting a lower caloric intake‚ resulting in weight loss.
PGX® is combined with whey protein and medium chain triglycerides‚ shown clinically to enhance body fat loss while preserving lean muscle‚ and to induce satiety and a decreased consumption of calories‚ respectively. A full complement of vitamins and minerals ensure support for healthy macronutrient metabolism.
Contains 5 g of PGX® per serving

Low glycemic load and index; helps to normalize postprandial blood glucose levels and improves insulin sensitivity for less fat storage

Drug Interactions: A reduction in serum glucose concentrations 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‚ to prevent a reduction in their absorption. Similarly‚ fat-soluble vitamins should be taken separately. Theoretically‚ whey protein may decrease levodopa absorption‚ and should be taken together with caution.

Surprised by the taste
I purchased the meal replacement shake over the soft gels b/c I get so tired of swallowing horse pills 2 and 3 times a day. I read a couple of reviews on other websites about PGX meal replacement shakes and the reviews were ok. I could not find anything on Bioclinic Naturals but decided I would give the double chocolate a shot. To my surprise it was not bad. I think I was expecting the typical protein shake taste. The consistency is what took some time to get used to.......The PGX is definitely thicker and continues to thicken the longer you wait to drink it. I mix the shake with about 6 oz of water add my 1 cup of fruit and mix with my bullet blender....I do recommend using a small drink blender. I dont think any of the shaker style bender cups with the wisk ball would mix this shake appropriately. The PGX is heavy and sinks to the bottom of the blender cup still maintaining most of the shape of the scoop it fell out of. My husband made something like pudding with his and he enjoys it....I like mine for breakfast since Im in a hurry. I am still only using 1 scoop (2 is a serving) and it definitely keeps me full until lunch time which is GREAT. In the past I used Optimum Nutritions hydrowhey for my protein shakes and in 2 hours I was hungry again....my hunger is at bay much longer than 2 hours. So if you are watching calories for weight reduction it is a decent meal replacement shake not to mention the fiber! I ordered the French Vanilla this time around so I will leave a review on that flavor as soon as it arrives. I hope this helps anyone on the fence about trying...I would say give it a shot!
Keeps you FULL!
Great source of fiber
√ I would recommend this item to a friend.
