Protein promotes weight loss in several ways. Some amino acids influence the production of gastrointestinal hormones that control nutrient absorption and signal appetite control centres in the brain. A high protein diet can also boost the metabolism by increasing the number of brown fat cells and specialized liver proteins, which regulate energy and temperature. By promoting energy expenditure they help the body burn more calories.
PGX (PolyGlycopleX®) is a highly viscous novel polysaccharide complex made using advanced EnviroSimplex® technology. PGX expands and forms a viscous mix with the other bar ingredients, increasing the volume of food in the digestive tract and slowing digestion. This promotes and prolongs a feeling of fullness, and stimulates the release of signalling hormones that alert the brain to stop eating.
Like soluble fibre, PGX helps regulate blood sugar by slowing the absorption of carbohydrates and increasing insulin sensitivity. It helps lower cholesterol by binding and eliminating bile acids and cholesterol molecules in the digestive tract before they are absorbed into the blood.
