I used PGX granules probably 15 years ago. They do help with appetite suppression. However, I feel like they kind of constipate me, despite my drinking a lot of water. They gel up quickly, but it doesnt bother me, as it just kind of becomes like easy-to-swallow lumpy bits of jello. It reminds me of those aloe drinks that used to be really popular (do those still exist??) They had bits of aloe floating around in them, and tasted like grape. Anyway, when the pgx gels while im stirring my drink, it's kind of like those little floaty jello-y bits of aloe. The constipation is a bit frustrating, though, so I have to figure out a happy medium to continue use.
I bought this to help regulate blood sugar levels as I read it can help with waking up in the night … I used it a few times but I found it very jelly like in consistency on dissolving in the water, which has put me off using this regularly. A very specific product, used probably for a different purpose.
Using this as hydrating filler while I cleanse and get back to better eating habits. You need to drink a lot of water with this! It’s like eating clumps of unflavored gelatin! Odd stuff. But comes highly recommended by notable Dr Hyman.
I have taken this product for about two years now. There are different varieties of PGX (e.g., capsules), but I find these granules to be my favorite. I take it with one tablespoon of unsweetened applesauce. I scoop one dose into a small bowl, add the applesauce, and mix it together, which takes seconds to do. I could take it with water, but I never acquired the taste (which is pretty much tasteless). It, along with Berberine and a change in diet, has helped to reduce my A1c level from 6.4 to 5.7, and I am heading to 5.4. I highly recommend this product.
Pretty revolting to swallow. It is so thick so I have to drink it with double the recommended amount of water. I only took it once and didn’t notice anything but I will continue taking it and come back to this review.
