The PGX Weight Loss Meal Replacement promotes healthy weight loss by reducing postprandial hyperglycemia, increasing satiety, and providing supportive nutrients for blood sugar metabolism. PGX (PolyGlycopleX) 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 fibres 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.
To make a delicious and satisfying meal replacement smoothie, blend, shake or briskly stir 2 scoops (62 g) of PGX Weight Loss Meal Replacement into 350–500 ml of water 1–2 times per day or as directed by a health care professional. Drink additional water (350–500 ml) following the smoothie. When first taking PGX Weight Loss Meal Replacement, begin with 1 scoop (31 g) in a glass of water (175–350 ml) and gradually increase to 2 scoops (62 g) as directed above.
Serving Option: You can also customize your meal replacement by blending PGX Weight Loss Meal Replacement with purified water and 1 cup of fresh or frozen organic berries or other fruit. PGX Weight Loss Meal Replacement makes a delicious pudding. Mix as above, then pour into a bowl and refrigerate for 1 hour. Add « a banana or other fruit for variety.

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 slowing down 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.
