PGX Satisfast protein drink is made with 100% natural whey protein, providing all the essential amino acids the human body needs.
Having a PGX Satisfast protein drink between meals provides a feeling of fullness without adding excess calories. It also minimizes the urge to snack before or between meals.
Consuming protein throughout the day reduces appetite, helps balance blood sugar levels already within the normal range, and promotes healthy weight management.
After taking PGX, is it possible to still be hungry?
Sure. It is possible to still feel hungry after taking PGX. It’s a gentle-acting plant fiber complex that works gradually to reprogram your neurological response to food. For emotional eaters, additional counseling and support may be necessary.
How does PGX control cravings?
Cravings are a direct result of blood sugar imbalance. PGX controls the release of sugars into the bloodstream, slowing digestion and creating a feeling of satiation.
How do I know PGX is working?
When taking the recommended dosage of 7.5 -15 grams of PGX per day, (2.5 – 5 grams 3 times per day – Note, PGX Meal Replacement Drink mix contains 4 – 5 g of PGX and PGX SatisFastTM drink mix contains 2.5 g of PGX) you should begin to see a decrease in appetite and cravings.
I’ve tried other diets. How is PGX different?
Unlike other supplements, PGX is designed to “treat the cause, not the illness”. PGX and the PGX Programs will not only help you lose weight but help you maintain a healthier weight. And while doing so, PGX will provide you with the added benefits of living a healthier life.
Does PGX have side effects?
As your body acclimates to PGX, it’s possible to experience some intestinal discomfort. We recommend incrementally increasing the dosage as explained here, and drinking a large glass of water with each dose.
Can I take PGX if I’m on medication(s)?
Consult your healthcare practitioner. PGX can affect the absorption of medication into your bloodstream. We recommend taking your oral medicine at least 1 hour before or 2-3 hours after consuming PGX. This information should not be taken as medical advice or substituted for it.
Can I take PGX with other supplements?
Yes. PGX can be taken in combination with other supplements, such as essential fatty acids (EFAs) and multivitamins & minerals.
Does PGX contain caffeine or other stimulants?
PGX does not contain caffeine or other stimulants, although traces of naturally occurring caffeine may be present in the chocolate ingredient used in the PGX® Satisfast™ Organic Vegan 15 g Protein Bars.
Does PGX contain gluten?
Where can I buy PGX?
PGX can be purchased online or at pharmacies, grocery stores and health food stores across Canada and in the US, and through health care professionals and natural dispensaries.
PGX (PolyGlycopleX®) is a patented super fibre complex made up of 100% natural, highly viscous polysaccharides. When taken with meals, PGX expands in the stomach over a 30-minute (or longer) timeframe. This process creates a feeling of fullness by absorbing water and filling the stomach while slowing digestion. This slows the absorption of carbohydrates, effectively lowering the glycemic index of the food.
By slowing the release of glucose into the bloodstream, PGX levels out the peaks and crashes of the unhealthy blood sugar roller coaster. This helps you feel full longer, reduces food cravings and unhealthy between-meal snacking.
Protein promotes weight loss by increasing the feeling of fullness, so you consume fewer calories. Plus, the body requires more energy to digest protein, so it burns more calories digesting a high-protein meal.
Protein improves blood sugar control when it contains L-leucine, an essential amino acid that modulates insulin signaling and regulates glucose use by skeletal muscle. The whey protein in PGX Satisfast provides all the amino acids essential to human health, including L-leucine. PGX Vegan Satisfast provides the same amino acids by combining proteins from grains, legumes, and seeds.
The patented super fibre complex in PGX can bind several hundred times its weight in water and stomach fluids, far more than other soluble fibres like psyllium or oat beta-glucan. PGX is backed by over 10 years of research and development along with extensive pre-clinical studies and clinical trials conducted in the United States, France, and Germany. PGX is 100% natural and non-addictive and safe for consumption, with no serious side effects.
