PGX is a highly viscous combination of water-soluble polysaccharides. Viscous fibers have been shown to reduce postprandial glucose concentrations and lower total and LDL cholesterol, primarily by forming a gel matrix which slows gastric emptying. Viscous fibers also trap ingested carbohydrates and lipids inside the gel matrix, decreasing the transport and uptake of glucose and cholesterol at absorptive surfaces. Clinical trials have shown that in addition to the benefits of glucose and lipid reduction, highly viscous fibers were found to lower insulin secretion and C-peptide in response to carbohydrate meals, and also improve glucose tolerance. Viscous fibers effectively reduce the glycemic index of foods consumed simultaneously by preventing the postprandial spikes in blood glucose concentration.Fiber viscosity has been associated with increased satiety and reduced appetite.PGX reduces hunger and propect
