No, but not knowing what it costs, sounds like a new take on 'snake oil'. I'd guess it's one of those products containing fiber like Metamucil does with 2 other fibers like perhaps other plant products which will make you both feel full and hasten the passage of your food into your bowel. Just guessing after reading what they say. You sure could do that cheaply at home if you want to try it.

I'll be interested in seeing what more scientific types on the forum have to say about it.

The website says it is Wheat/Gluten free, and something about viscosity and stuff....ive seen it advertised on the radio and tv a lot lately, and see it at Walmart all the time

I'd be really leery of anything promoted by Dr. Oz, and I sure wouldn't spend a bunch of money on it.

Daytona and miss djax like this.

Dr. Oz is probably a really good heart surgeon, but he's also a TV star and like most surgeons should really stick to his specialty where he doesn't have to be a 'jack of all trades'. I have nothing against him and he certainly does make people aware of both good things and in my opinion some bad ones.

Just saying',

mbuster, I believe that's how our glucose response keeps us alive I believe.

I've never heard of it, so I don't know how it works. There is really nothing you can add to your food that is going to allow you to have normal bgs, unless you cut your carbs. It does say it has soluble fiber in it. That is the fiber in oatmeal. Some of us have found adding a small amount of Oat Fiber to each meal helps with our soluble fiber and our bgs. I also use chia seed. I'm sure these things are a lot cheaper.

I thought rising blood sugars not falling increased insulin production.

Unless their statement in the article meant that if the blood sugar dropped far enough the liver spit out more glucose and that also triggered an increase in insulin production.

[quote/]Blood sugar levels are less likely to spike when using PGX. And when they dont spike, blood sugar levels dont tend to fall far enough to trigger excess production of insulin.[/quote]

"sugar levels don’t tend to fall far enough to trigger excess production of insulin"
