The Canadian Center for Functional Medicine conducted a weight loss trial using SlimStyles™ Meal Replacement Drink Mix with PGX™ from December to February, possibly the most difficult time of year to lose weight. In spite of the holiday season, participants were able to continue to lose body fat and achieve their weight loss goals.
The researchers found that participants using the SlimStyles™ Meal Replacement Drink Mix consistently lost up to two pounds per week*, which was primarily body fat. In addition to the loss in body fat, the SlimStyles™ weight loss program maintained lean muscle mass and did not affect body water levels. This means a better metabolic rate was achieved to help with losing weight and keeping it off.
PGX™: Weight Control Breakthrough
The “secret weapon” that makes SlimStyles™ succeed where every other diet or weight loss plan has failed, is the revolutionary ingredient known as PGX™ (short for PolyGlycoplex™). It is the key active ingredient in the SlimStyles™ Meal Replacement, and SlimStyles™ Appetite Control and Fiber Blend.
So what is it?
PGX™ is a blend of naturally-occurring water-soluble fibers that together can absorb more than 500 times their weight in water.
PGX™ is the result of many years of intensive clinical and laboratory research at the University of Toronto, in collaboration with Canadian Center for Functional Medicine, based on the research of Dr. Vladimir Vuksan. a leading North American expert on nutrition and its effects on metabolism, obesity, and appetite regulation. Dr. Vuksan found that a certain soluble fiber had the ability to stabilize blood sugar levels, reduce blood cholesterol levels, regulate appetite and help people lose weight without feeling deprived, a key to life long weight management. PGX™ fiber blend has an even greater effect on appetite and weight loss, in fact, it has a water-binding capacity that is 5 times greater than the fiber Dr. Vuksan studied, and 10 to 20 times greater than other soluble fibers such as psyllium or guar gum. This means that smaller doses of PGX™ can have greater beneficial health effects than other fibers, as well as supporting safe, sustainable weight loss.
In a SlimStyles™ Meal Replacement drink, PGX™ initially creates a smooth appealing texture. Once ingested, PGX™ continues to thicken and expand for a few hours as it absorbs water. It is important to drink lots of water with PGX™. By expanding in the stomach and intestine, PGX™ keeps appetite under control for several hours and provides a sense of fullness.
Thanks to PGX™, the hunger controlling effects of a SlimStyles™ meal replacement dramatically improve a person’s ability to comply with, and stick to, a calorie-controlled diet, and to attain and maintain their weight loss goals.
