If you’re looking for a convenient soluble fiber supplement‚ you might want to try PGX Daily Granules by Bioclinic Naturals. These granules contain PGX (PolyGlycopleX)‚ which is a blend of highly viscous‚ water-soluble polysaccharides derived from xantham gum‚ sodium alginate‚ and konjac root. Notably‚ PGX may be able to form a gel matrix that could potentially promote a feeling of fullness by delaying gastric emptying; it may also work to maintain steady blood sugar levels after a meal because viscous fibers might discourage excess insulin secretion.
Moreover‚ the gel matrix formed in your GI tract by PGX Daily Granules may play a role in maintaining already healthy glucose and cholesterol levels by trapping some dietary carbohydrates and lipids.
PGX Daily Granules can be mixed into water or juice without clumping. These unflavored granules can also be sprinkled onto any moist food.
Take one scoop two or three times daily. Each bottle of Bioclinic Naturals' PGX Daily Granules contains 150 grams (5.3 ounces) of granules‚ which should last from 20 days to about one month at the recommended dosage.

Begin with ½ a scoop and gradually increase over several days as tolerated. Up to 1 scoop‚ times per day may be required in some cases for optimal appetite control or as directed by a health care professional. Use consistently before or with meals or with healthy snacks to greatly reduce appetite and curb food cravings.
Serving Option: PGX mixes instantly in water or juice but can also be sprinkled onto any moist food‚ yogurt‚ fruit salad‚ oatmeal‚ soup‚ any low-calorie beverage or meal replacement.
Notice: A small percentage of people may initially experience minor temporary digestive changes as the body adjusts to the addition of PGX‚ usually in a few days. To help ease fiber digestion‚ slowly work up to the full dose. It is important to drink adequate amounts of water immediately after ingesting PGX.
Those with a known allergy to the fibers in PGX should avoid it. Individuals at risk for intestinal obstruction‚ such as those with systemic sclerosis‚ should increase fiber intake with caution. While no specific contraindications exist or are predicted‚ data is lacking for use during pregnancy‚ lactation‚ and in children‚ and the dosage may need to be reduced for those less than 18.
