PolyGlycoPlex Review - Does This Fiber Supplement System Work? Are lack of results and harmful side effects deal breakers?PUBLISHED: 09/13/2015 | BY: SUMMER BANKS, SENIOR REVIEWER
Polyglycoplex is a product that’s been around for a long time and has grown in popularity. We decided to review Polyglycoplex because many people have not heard of it, but it has generated a lot of interest lately as a fiber supplement and weight loss tool. We looked at online reviews, side effects, ingredients, scientific research and clinical data to provide a summarize review for our readers.
What You Need to Know
Polyglycoplex is a fiber supplement that supposedly boosts weight loss results by blocking sugar and suppressing appetite. The ingredients include some well-researched ingredients like Konjac Root Extract and Glucomannan, as well as leaf extract, gelatin, water, rice powder, magnesium stearate, and more. The product is to be taken once a day with a glass of water, and is convenient enough for those with a busy lifestyle to take on the go.
These fiber supplements have been on the market since the late 2000s. It’s still relatively new to the diet industry, but it’s readily available online and easy to find. Polyglycoplex is affordable, easy to take, and seems to have some positive comments online, but read on…
Lack of Results – Disappointing weight loss claims
The weight loss claims made by Polyglycoplex seem too good to be true, and in many cases they are. “Polyglycoplex blocks sugars in addition to suppressing your appetite with fiber,” said our research editor. “Because of this, this product will not work for many people.” Many people have seen results, but many medications, disorders or diseases, or personal lifestyles can conflict with this product, making it difficult to achieve the weight loss claims.
“These are affordable, but I didn’t lose any weight. These pills don’t make me feel full, so I’m still hungry after taking them,” said one user.
“This product had no effect on me; I won’t buy again,” said another. This stuff might work wonders, but who can afford it?,” said another.

Negative Side Effects – Another Concern
Another issue we had with Polyglycoplex was the high frequency of negative side effects. There are many significant side effects for those on high blood pressure medication, those with diabetes or hypoglycemia, and those on cardiovascular or mood altering drugs. Some of these side effects can include thoughts of suicide, unstable blood sugar, palpitations, or decreased mood. Many other customers also reported less severe side effects including stomach cramps, headaches, diarrhea, and more. “I took Polyglycoplex last night, and can’t make it out of the bathroom long enough to do anything today,” said one customer.
“This interfered with my current medication and could have caused dangerous side effects if I didn’t catch it right away,” said another. Many users agreed and had to stop taking this supplement prematurely. “I saw a decreased appetite with Polyglycoplex, but I also had cramps and headaches,” said another customer.
Our research has shown that whenever there is something that is abnormally difficult or troublesome about a diet or exercise program (cost, taste, negative side effects, painful workouts, etc.) the likelihood of sustained weight loss is decreased. If Polyglycoplex really does have a long list of negative side effects, this could make it difficult to lose weight and keep it off.
One good thing about Polyglycoplex is that it does have some clinical research proving its effectiveness, but some of the research was done on lab rats, and the results may not be the same for human consumption. There are also no studies that explicitly state that Polyglycoplex is fit for human consumption without severe side effects. At DietSpotlight, we value scientific research and published data, so when a company is missing this research, or it has incomplete research, we see major cause for concern.
The Bottom Line
We like that Polyglycoplex is convenient, easy to take, and affordable, but we can’t recommend it as a safe, effective weight loss product for our customers. The lack of published data on humans is discouraging, and the fact that they tested this on lab rats instead of humans is alarming. The side effects that many customers have seen concern us, and there may be some long term issues caused by this as well. We’re also concerned that the results that the product claims don’t work for many customers.
If you’d like to drop some weight without the side effects, we suggest you find a supplement that provides healthy weight loss with proven ingredients: a product with scientific research and published studies on human subjects that confirm that it is safe for human consumption and effective at helping customers lose weight.
Leptigen is one of our staff’s favorite products so far in 2015. The proprietary blend of just four ingredients has not been linked to negative side effects in online reviews, and their claims are backed up by double-blind clinical studies that have been published in peer-reviewed journals. These studies also show the effectiveness of this product to help users lose weight by accelerating fat loss and boosting their metabolism. Leptigen also has great customer feedback online from customers that have been able to lose weight without negative side effects.
Right now, the makers of Leptigen are showing just how confident they are that you’ll love their product and see results that they’re offering a special trial offer.
