What's all the fuss about fibre? Benefits beyond bran

Provided By:

(NC)-Did you know that the right type and amount of dietary fibre could help you lose weight, balance cholesterol, prevent blood sugar problems and even change the glycemic index of the foods you eat?

Everyone knows that fibre is important for regularity, but when most people think of fibre, they think of only one kind, insoluble fibre like bran. While bran is an excellent food, it can't compare to newly developed soluble fibres like PGX, a proprietary fibre blend that is being called a 'super fibre' for its unique properties. Dr. Michael Murray explains, "Bran and other non-soluble fibres add bulk for better elimination and, like tiny brushes, they help clean out the lower digestive tract. The new combinations of highly soluble fibres, like those that make up PGX, are more like sponges - they can absorb hundreds of times their weight in water - giving them incredible health-enhancing benefits." More about the benefits of soluble fibre can be found at pgx.com.

Dr. Murray, co-author of a new book from Atria Press called Hunger Free Forever, explains that soluble fibre can make a person feel full even with a small amount of food. Soluble fibre combines with food and water and expands in the digestive tract, slowing digestion and therefore helping the body receive nutrition, especially glucose, at a more controlled rate. This is extremely helpful for anyone with blood sugar problems such as Metabolic Syndrome, pre-diabetes or Type II diabetes.

"When blood sugar soars and then plunges, you have a virtual blood sugar roller coaster. Extreme high or low levels of blood glucose are dangerous. Research indicates that the blood sugar roller coaster contributes to excessive cravings and weight gain, heart health problems and of course diabetes and its complications. We've shown that PGX, because it is a highly soluble fibre, helps 'derail' the blood sugar roller coaster, so people can get their appetite and blood sugar under control," explains Dr. Murray.

If you always feel hungry; if you have irresistible food cravings; if you often feel exhausted or low on energy; consider getting OFF the blood sugar roller coaster. Talk to any natural health practitioner or your medical professional about adding more soluble fibre to your diet.
