PGX® Supports Healthy Blood Sugar Levels Already within a Normal Range
Most foods in the Western diet are highly processed. Convenience foods and “fast food,” especially, are laden with highly refined carbohydrates. These foods are too rapidly digested by the body, causing increases in blood sugar levels after meals. This rapid rise triggers the body to release insulin to bring blood sugar back down again. Coupled with a current or chronic blood sugar level imbalance, this creates a pattern in which blood sugar erratically rises and falls – it’s the so-called blood sugar roller coaster.
PGX® counteracts the effects of carbohydrate-heavy meals to help support healthy blood sugar levels. control and balance blood sugar levels. The same highly viscous fiber complex created by adding PGX to your meals, the one that helps you feel full and retain that feeling of satisfaction longer, is also your source of assistance in supporting healthy blood sugar levels already within a normal range. The slowed digestion that you experience when using PGX also slows the conversion of carbohydrates and other foods into sugar, resulting in a more gradual release of glucose into the bloodstream.
PGX® has been clinically proven to reduce the glycemic index of foods by up to 50%2,3. The glycemic index (GI) is a scale that ranks carbohydrate-rich foods by how much they raise blood glucose levels after meals, when compared to a standard food (glucose or white bread). When blood sugar levels increases are minimized, it also helps to prevent blood sugar levels from falling.
