What is PGX®?
PGX (PolyGlycopleX®) is a patented super fiber complex appetite suppressing supplement made up of 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 (satiety) by absorbing water and filling the stomach while slowing digestion1. This promotes healthy blood sugar levels thereby curbing the body’s hunger cravings throughout the day1.
How Does it Work?
PGX reduces appetite and promotes a feeling of fullness.
Unlike other supplements which promise; “a magical change in metabolism”, “fat that melts away”, or “weight loss without any effort required”, PGX is backed by published, double-blind research that demonstrate PGX’s effectiveness at helping you feel full longer and hungry less often1.
While helping you eat reduced portions and making healthy changes to your diet and lifestyle, PGX can help you achieve and maintain a healthy weight for life1.

Instructions of Use
Follow the simple steps below to help you, and get started with PGX
How to use: For excellent results, take a daily PGX Daily "sachets" before or with meals.

Or as recommended by your doctor or pharmacist.
First week: one sachet once daily.
Second week: one sachet twice daily.
At the end of the second week you will feel full quickly and for a longer period.
If your body is not used to PGX reduce the dose like the first week until you feel you can tolerate PGX and then increase the dose as shown above.
Do not exceed two packets three times a day
Every sachet contains: 2.5 grams of PolyGlycoPlex fibers.
It is not recommended to use the product with pregnant women. This product is not suitable for people who cannot drink as much water as patients with kidney problems.
During the first week of use, the patient may feel some gastrointestinal disturbances such as bloating or gas, diarrhea or constipation, but the symptoms soon disappear after the first week.
PGX Daily can slow the absorption of oral medications if they are taken together at the same time, so medications should be taken an hour before PGX Daily or two or three hours before taking PGX Daily fibers.
Consult your physician before taking PGX Daily fibers if you are taking any medications.
Diabetics should monitor their blood sugar regularly because PGX Daily fibers may lower their blood sugar level and thus may interfere with their diabetes medications, and they should consult a doctor before use.
PGX Daily Pack contains: 30 sachets.
