Bioclinic Naturals PGX Weight Loss Meal Replacement Double Chocolate 1Kg
Bioclinic Naturals PGX Weight Loss Meal Replacement Double Chocolate 1Kg :
The PGX Weight Loss Meal Replacement promotes healthy weight loss by reducing postprandial hyperglycemia, increasing satiety, and providing supportive nutrients for blood sugar metabolism. PGX (PolyGlycopleX) is a highly viscous combination of well purified water-soluble polysaccharides derived from konjac root, sodium alginate, and xantham gum, which has been shown to reduce postprandial glucose concentrations and lower total and LDL cholesterol, primarily by forming a gel matrix which slows gastric emptying. Postprandial hyperglycemia is an important causal factor in endothelial dysfunction, several complications of diabetes, and overweight. By reducing the glycemic index of foods, viscous fibres prevent postprandial spikes in blood glucose concentration and in glucose regulating hormone production. They have also been found to increase satiety and reduce appetite, promoting a lower caloric intake, resulting in weight loss.
PGX is combined with whey protein and medium chain triglycerides, shown clinically to enhance body fat loss while preserving lean muscle, and to induce satiety and a decreased consumption of calories, respectively. A full complement of vitamins and minerals ensure support for healthy macronutrient metabolism.

Contraindications : Those with a known allergy to any of the components should avoid it. Individuals at risk for intestinal obstruction, such as those with systemic sclerosis, should increase fibre intake with caution. While no specific contraindication exists or is 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. If you are under 18 years of age, pregnant or nursing or if you have any health concerns, consult your health care practitioner before starting any weight loss plan.
Drug Interactions : A reduction in serum glucose concentrations may require a lowering of the dosage of any antidiabetic medications, and serum glucose should be monitored closely to prevent hypoglycemia. Oral medications may need to be taken one hour prior or two hours after, to prevent a slowing down in their absorption. Similarly, fat-soluble vitamins should be taken separately. Theoretically, whey protein may decrease the absorption of anti-Parkinson medications, and should be taken together with caution.
