My wife and her sisters got marketted to and convinced about this stuff amongst themselves, none the less its getting the wife to get motivated to work out (depsite the fact I can teach her proper nutrition, train her, etc.. but she's been lazy all this time).

Anyways good thing is it's motivating her to finally start on nutrition diet change and work out.. but I wana know what the heck is this thing? Sometimes people just need a placebo lmao so I might as well pay for it... but WHAT IS IT?

She just told me she is getting the 'kit'. So I want to know more and their site seems to say jack all,just marketing marketing marketing.

I tried to google it, it's some fiber in it or some 'engineered carb'. I take karbolyn myself but eh it would make u fat if u took it sparringly i do it pre and intra workout works great.. but this PGX... I can't seem to find its 'ingredients'. Also some mention of lowering sugar and triglycerides, cholesterol levels.. and some doctors recommend it even.

Someone with knowledge on this?

It sounds like this stuff: http://www.amazon.com/Glucomannan-Powder-100-Pure/dp/B005F9W9JQ/ref=pd_sbs_gro_1

We had a discussion about Glucomannan/Konjac in another thread: http://www.getbig.com/boards/index.php?topic=427564.0

     PGX technology has produced PGX Daily Ultra Matrix Softgels - an advanced delivery system for optimum results. ‘Ultra Matrix’ refers to PGX granules suspended in a matrix of medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) - healthy fats from purified coconut oil. PGX Daily disperses and becomes viscous slowly in the stomach and digestive tract. Most other fibres do not become as viscous as PGX, become viscous too quickly or do not become viscous at all. PGX Daily maintains its viscosity throughout the entire digestive tract (including the colon) which means that the glycemic index and subsequent blood sugar regulation is greater. Also, thanks to the thermogenic properties of the MCTs in the capsule, PGX Daily can result in an extra 25 – 50 calories burned daily.

You looked more thoroughly than I did. I see they still don't mention the name/source of the "fiber."

PGX is a unique novel complex of selected, highly viscous soluble polysaccharides (plant fibres) that act synergistically to develop a higher level of viscosity and expansion with water than with the same quantity of any currently know single fibre.
