Do you have trouble controlling your appetite, and this problem of food cravings and overeating is undermining your weight?
The PGX Daily program, which we present to you today, may be able to help you solve your problem and regain your figure.
Presentation and promises of PGX Daily
PGX Daily is therefore a complete weight loss program, in which the PGX Daily product fits, and of which it is the flagship supplement. Why ?
Simply because PGX Daily is, according to the official website, a “super fiber” that suppresses food cravings.
The PGX Daily program is available in 2 versions:
This is a 2-week program that aims to rebalance diet, move and regain healthy lifestyle habits.
This program requires the use of the PGX Daily supplement, of course.
The advanced program is more structured, more targeted, but also longer.
Lasting 12 weeks, it includes various PGX Daily products, including meal replacements, as well as a very controlled calorie diet, and instructions for physical exercises.
It aims to significantly activate weight loss, and improve health.
On the official site, these two programs are revealed in detail completely free of charge.
We find, for each of them, clear instructions for each day concerning the foods to eat, the exercises to do, the supplements to take, etc.
There are also recipes and tips on the site for a successful slimming program.
PGX Daily is therefore a fiber that is available in different forms: drink mix, protein drink, granules to mix with meals, capsules or protein bars.
All of these PGX Daily products aim to satisfy all tastes and preferences.

The ingredients of PGX Daily capsules
PGX stands for PolyGlycoplex. It is a patented blend of highly purified fibers using advanced technology.
What are these special fibers?
Konjac is a plant extremely rich in fibers, which have the ability to increase in volume (up to 100 times their initial volume) when they come into contact with liquids, such as the juices present in the stomach. .
The formation of this gel in the stomach actually leads to an increased feeling of satiety and leads to a natural reduction in the amount of food ingested.
The glucomannan fibers of konjac also have a mild laxative effect which promotes intestinal transit and the elimination of toxins by natural means.
Finally, konjac participates in the regulation of blood sugar and cholesterol.

2. Xanthan Gum:
Xanthan gum is a polysaccharide obtained from the action of a bacterium, xanthomonas campestris. It most often comes from corn, soybeans, wheat, but also from many other plants.
Cold soluble, xanthan gum, known in the food industry as the food additive E415, is used for its thickening and gelling properties.
These effects are similar to those of konjac or guar gum (full article on this ingredient HERE), namely an increase in satiety, an appetite suppressant effect and therefore a reduction in calories consumed.
3. Sodium Alginate:
Again, it is a food additive (E401) consisting of alginate and sodium.
Very soluble in water, sodium alginate is a long molecule synthesized from alginic acid, extracted from brown algae.
It is used as a gelling agent, and has appetite suppressant properties. It would also promote digestion.
PGX Daily also contains medium chain triglycerides from coconut oil.
These MCTs are fatty acids used more easily by the liver as a source of energy, instead of being, like other fatty acids, stored as body fat.
They also have the ability to trigger the feeling of satiety, thus promoting weight loss.
PGX Daily and Science
The official website provides a lot of information regarding the history of PGX Daily and the scientific research associated with this fiber.
We learn that it was in the 90s, British researchers discovered the synergy between the 2 polysaccharides of PGX Daily, namely konjac and xanthan gum.
Then Canadian researchers discovered that the addition of a third compound, sodium alginate, produced a fiber of unexpected viscosity, promising for the slimming market.
No less than 15 studies are cited on the official website, concerning different aspects of PGX Daily fiber:
- Its effect on blood sugar;
- Its effect on the glycemic index of carbohydrates;
- Its effect on cholesterol;
- Its effect on the level of lipids in the blood;
- Its effect on appetite.
To summarize, we noted the results of 3 studies.
The effect of PGX Daily fiber on the glycemic index (GI) of certain foods has been clinically tested.
The foods tested were cornflakes, oats, french fries, potatoes, white bread and rice.
The study showed that PGX Daily fiber significantly lowers the GI of these foods.
For doses of food between 2 and 5g, the drop in the GI is 19% on average, and 30% for doses of 5g of food. This amounts to reducing the GIs by 7 to 15 units.
Only downside, the site does not cite any reference for this study. The results are therefore not verifiable.
The effect of PGX Daily fiber on appetite was tested with the intake, in participants, of 5g of PGX Daily added to their meal during a calorie restricted diet.
The results showed a drop in total calorie consumption, as well as an increase in satiety, especially in the afternoon and evening.
(Source : Nutr Diabetes. 2011 Dec; 1(12):e22. Published online 2011 Dec 12. doi: 10.1038/nutd.2011.18).
Finally, a study observed the effects of PGX Daily on obese subjects not on a specific diet.
Participants took 5-15g of PGX Daily per day, or inulin, for 15 weeks.
The results show that the consumption of PGX Daily leads to weight loss (modest, approximately 2 kg in 15 weeks), a reduction in waist circumference and thigh circumference, as well as a drop in total and LDL cholesterol. Inulin produces similar, but weaker effects.
Side effects and contraindications of PGX Daily
Konjac, taken in unsealed form in a capsule, can obstruct the throat or the intestines and cause cases of choking which can go as far as death.
Luckily PGX Daily uses konjac in capsule form, negating that risk.
On the other hand, this ingredient can cause diarrhea, flatulence and loose stools.
Xanthan gum, on the other hand, does not cause any adverse effects at reasonable doses.
However, some contradictory reports exist, and mention allergies related to the product from which the gum is derived (corn, wheat, dairy products, soy, etc.), a laxative effect, bloating and gas, increased transit, and sometimes nausea.
To avoid bloating and flatulence, the manufacturer recommends starting with a minimum dose of PGX Daily, and increasing it gradually, to let the body adjust to the product.
