PGX Daily Ultra Matrix Softgels Review

PGX Daily Ultra Matrix Weight Loss Supplements

With an attractive slogan “PGX will change your life, even if you don’t”, PGX Daily weight loss supplements are getting attention of people looking for effective diet pills. But do you find anything special in this slogan? Not really.

PGX Daily dietary supplements are being advertised heavily these days and also being sold at mega-stores like Walmart. But do these softgel capsules really work is big question mark.

Are these very similar to Lipozene, FiberThin and Propolene is another question.

PGX Daily Ultramatrix Softgels Ingredients – Not a Miracle Pill!

Its main formula PGX (PolyGlycoplex) (750mg) is a blend of 3 ingredients

  • Konjac root: It is nothing but Glucomannan fibre that is proven to aid weight loss when taken at doses of 2000mg-4000mg a day.
  • Sodium Alginate: An algae-based thickener.
  • Xanthan gum: A thickening agent formed when the bacteria Xanthomonas campestris is combined with corn sugar.

The other active ingredient is Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT oil) which can aid weight loss when taken in very large dosage, perhaps 50 times more of what PGX Daily has.

PGX sellers claim that it has 600mg of MCT in one capsule, but in reality it is not likely, as with 600 mg of MCT, the capsule would be too large to be swallowed.

How does PGX Daily softgel work?

PGX Ultra Matrix is mainly a Glucomannan pill or fibre based supplement.

Glucomannan is proven to lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels, balance blood sugar levels and aid weight loss by suppressing appetite when taken in large doses.

According to a study done by the Rush University College of Nursing in Chicago in 2005 “Glucomannan may promote weight loss. At doses of 2-4 g per day, Glucomannan was well-olerated and resulted in significant weight loss in overweight and obese individuals”

According to Drug Digest “Glucomannan does not dissolve in water, but forms a thick, gooey gel when exposed to fluids. The body does not digest glucomannan, so the resulting large soft mass moves through the intestines and may trigger intestinal muscle contractions.”

But, PGX softgels are less likely to have required amount of Glucomannan, a fibre from konjac root (Amount not clearly disclosed on official website) and so less likely to aid significant weight loss.

Definitely it won’t change your life, even if you don’t. It is not a miracle pill.

With Konjac root as main active ingredient, it looks similar to other Glucomannan based pills like Lipozene, FiberThin and Propolene which were fined by Federal Trade Commission for making misleading claims.

PGX Daily side effects

According to Drug Digest “Glucomannan pills are not recommended for oral use. Reportedly, several individuals experienced blockage of the esophagus when they took glucomannan in pill form.”

Another concern is it may obstruct the absorption of certain nutrients.

Where to buy PGX Daily softgels?

These can be purchased at many health food stores, pharmacy and supermarkets like Walmart. One can buy them online also from some websites.

  1. how much exerice do i need to lose weight fast becase i am working in retail store and i have no time for gym and i am taking pgx daily 2soft gel with every meal.

  2. Kelly…if you have “no time” for exercise and expect a miracle, please give your head a shake. Well…first of all give your head a shake for using the LAME excuse that you have no time – especially since you work in a retail store. Next…get off your lazy @$$ and get to the gyn to lose the weight the proper way.

      Curtis, that was very rude. Do you know the circumstances around Kelly’s lifestyle? Perhaps she is run ragged looking after kids and a sick family member, putting others before herself. Our society has become so rude and has no compassion for others. I would suggest to Kelly, in politer terms, that when one needs to do something for ones self, the best way to go about it is to MAKE time for yourself.

      For instance, I get up at 5:30am to read my Bible and pray, before the kids are up and my day starts. Otherwise it just doesn’t happen. I have recently made the decision to add a daily 30-40 minute walk right before or after to get the exercise I need. But, this is a lifestyle change that can be very difficult for many people and takes determination and encouragement. Sometimes it doesn’t work out as planned, but I get back on track with prayer and discipline.

      Kelly, if you are concerned about your health and weight, consider your needs and with some determination and discipline (and prayer!) you can find the time to get the exercise you need for weight loss.

      God Bless.

    CHI its expensive but worth it

  4. cool tattoos for girls says:

    I know I make mistakes while dieting and it is good to be reminded that you are not alone and that? you just need to make minor changes. I sometimes feel like a bad person for slipping up on diets so this is very reassuring to me.

  5. I have been taking PGX capsels for a month and have had ZERO sucess!
    I first started taking 3 a day and am now up to 8, no difference at all!
    I think just a GOOD fiber that cost alot less with proper exercise and eating plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables would give you the best results without spending 30 + dollars a bottle.
    Good luck on this, it is NOT the answer!

  6. AMANDA WILSON says:

    I have been using PGX for two months now. I changed my eating habits also. I no longer use sugar and salt, I don’t eat junk food or fast food, and I exercise daily. When I started, I weighed 260 pounds. In less than two months, I have lost over 30 pounds.

    I eat one balanced meal per day, drink plenty of liquids, and when I feel hungry, I take two PGX capsules which allows me to feel full with no cravings whatsoever.

    PGX may not work for everyone, but it is a miracle supplement to me.

    Unfortunately there are no shortcuts.. you need to burn more calories than you ingest.. the fastest way is through cardio workout. Running is very effective only 20mins a day is good enough. If you cannot run then you need to walk for at least 45 mins, or try an incline. Walk with someone or a pet so that you do not get board.. walk with a purpose too.
    Drink lots of water, before your meal, break your meals into several small meals throughout the day, do not eat after 7pm at night. Absolutely cut out the junk food, if you are not prepared to cut out the junk food then be prepared to workout more.. There are no shortcuts or magic pills, save your money and invests in buying a gym, yoga membership or workout gear/equipment for your home.

  8. One rule for weight loss: No sugar, no *&% sugar, no _______ ________ sugar. Any questions?
