Two important advances in controlling appetite and blood sugar are combined in the PGX Satisfast Whey Protein drink mixes.
PGX (PolyGlycopleX®) is a highly viscous novel polysaccharide complex made using advanced EnviroSimplex® technology. PGX helps balance blood sugar, reduces between-meal food cravings, promotes healthy weight loss, and reduces cholesterol levels. The soluble dietary fibre in PGX is 3–5 times more effective than any other fibre. It reduces appetite by promoting a feeling of fullness. PGX is completely safe and stimulant-free.
Consuming protein throughout the day reduces appetite, balances blood sugar, and promotes healthy weight loss. Non-GMO, gluten-free PGX Satisfast Whey Protein delivers 10 g of complete protein per serving. It contains 18 amino acids including L-leucine, which is known to regulate insulin signalling. The whey is made without damaging heat or chemicals to yield the highest level of undenatured whey protein available.
A convenient glass of PGX Satisfast Whey Protein before each meal provides a feeling of fullness with only 60 calories per serving. It helps reduce portion size, and minimizes the urge to snack between meals. PGX Satisfast Whey Protein is sweetened with stevia and comes in delicious Dark Chocolate and Very Vanilla flavours.

How it works
The soluble dietary fibre in PGX absorbs water and expands, substantially increasing the volume of meals without significantly increasing the calories. You feel full sooner, which helps you eat less. PGX also slows the absorption of carbohydrates by increasing the viscosity (thickness) of food in your digestive tract. This makes you feel full longer and slows the release of glucose into the bloodstream, reducing the unhealthy blood sugar roller coaster that can trigger food cravings and between-meal snacking.
Protein promotes weight loss in various ways. Some amino acids influence the production of gastrointestinal hormones that are responsible for controlling nutrient absorption and signalling appetite control centres in the brain. This increases the feeling of satiety (fullness) so you consume fewer calories. The body also requires more energy to digest protein. A high-protein meal boosts the metabolism, burning more calories.
Protein improves blood sugar control when it contains leucine, an essential amino acid that modulates insulin signalling and regulates glucose use by skeletal muscle. It helps build muscle protein and reduces the breakdown of muscle fibres, helping preserve lean muscle mass. Leucine is important for improving post-workout muscle recovery.
PGX Satisfast Whey Protein provides a healthy foundation for controlling appetite and balancing blood sugar.
