PGX - What the Hell is it?!

 

No worries! It’s not complicated, it just has a weird name 😆

From Dr. Mark Hyman blog:

"Today, the average American eats about 8 grams of fiber a day. But the average hunter and gatherer ate 100 grams from all manner of roots, berries, leaves and plant foods. And the fiber is what helped those ancestors of ours stay healthy. Just take a look at all the good things that fiber can do for your body.

You need fiber to keep healthy from top to bottom, as well as to provide food for the healthy bacteria that work within you to promote health.

Glucomannan is an ancient fiber source that can help you lose weight, lower your cholesterol, reduce your appetite, and lower your blood sugar more effectively than ANY other fiber.

In fact, fiber can actually prevent obesity and all the chronic disease of aging. This is because fiber slows the rate at which food enters your bloodstream and increases the speed at which food exits your body through the digestive tract. That keeps your blood sugar and cholesterol in ideal balance — and quickly eliminates toxins from your gut and reduces your appetite.

There’s good science to back this up. Research shows that fiber can lower blood sugar as much as some diabetes medications, lower cholesterol, and promote weight loss. It’s clear, fiber is a great ally in the battle of the bulge" 

 

PGX is tasteless and I like using the granules. Just stir it into a glass of water and you’re good to go. This is the brand I usually get (no affiliation.) Slim Styles from House of Nutrition

Make sure you drink enough water if you use it! If you don’t, constipation may ensue!
