    Chromium Proprietary blend of Chlorogenic Acid (from Green Coffee Caffea arabica Bean) Extract (contains less than 2% natural caffeine), Garcinia cambogia Fruit Extract, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Polydextrose, Citric Acid, Natural Flavors, Beet (Beta Vulgaris Root) Extract, Stevia (Stevia Rebaudiana Leaf) Extract, Luo Han Guo (Siraitia Grosvenorii Fruit) Extract

    Let’s get one thing straight right off the bat. Although we’re reviewing Plexus Slim, it is not a meal replacement shake. There’s been a lot of confusion about it though, and since it is a weight loss product, we decided to review it and hopefully clear up some of that confusion. Plexus Slim is a powdered supplement that you mix in with your water. It’s intended to suppress appetite and help you control unnecessary food cravings. With the combination of Garcinia Cambogia, Chlorogenic Acid Extract, and Alpha Lipoic Acid all working together, you are supposed to be able to kiss those hunger cravings goodbye and theoretically shed those unwanted pounds. Even though these ingredients do work together (and separately) to do what this product is advertised to do, this is only a shortcut, a quick fix to a problem that needs a long term solution.

    Garcinia cambogia is a plant native to South America. Various trials and studies suggest that extract from the plant works to aid weight loss by inhibiting the enzyme that produces fatty acids, thus cutting down weight gain. It’s also suggested that garcinia cambogia releases serotonin, the hormone that makes you happy, and as a result people who crave food as a comfort mechanism don’t feel that craving. The result, again, is weight loss.

    Chlorogenic Acid is extracted from Green Coffee Beans. The reason why “regular” coffee does not produce the same effect as Green Coffee is because it is roasted before it’s used to make drinkable coffee, and roasting the beans is what de-activates the chlorogenic acid. Various studies show that chlorogenic acid is responsible for reducing carbohydrate absorption in the body. Numerous studies have shown weight loss in participants who consumed green coffee extract.

    Alpha-lipoic acid is the final main active ingredient in Plexus Slim. It’s an antioxidant that’s actually produced within the body and is contained in every single one of our cells. It’s what helps turn glucose into energy (the alternate option being glucose being stored as fat). It has been shown to help reduce obesity in obese humans in one study. However, the resulting weight loss wasn’t hugely significant, suggesting that when used as a weight loss supplement, alpha-lipoic acid is best used only as an additional aid, not a main tool for weight loss.

    If you’re under the impression that Plexus Slim is a meal replacement shake that will help you lose weight, the fact that it only has 10 calories is highly appealing. However, because it isn’t a meal replacement shake, don’t get too excited. Either way, 10 calories is a good thing, because who wants a mere weight loss supplement that packs on the calories? That defeats the purpose! The other thing that this product is low in is nutritional value. In fact, it contains almost none. There are 3 grams of carbohydrates and 167 percent of your recommended daily amount of chromium. We may be reviewing this product a bit too much through the lens of a meal replacement shake review, but we expected a little more, even from a mere supplement. That being said, Plexus Slim does contain stevia, which we’re happy about. Stevia is a natural and calorie free alternative to typical sugar.

    The instructions for this supplement are to mix it with a 12 ounce glass of water half an hour before a meal. Plexus Slim’s purpose is to make you feel full so that you eat less and your body uses stored fat as an energy source instead of food that you consume. Come to think of it, the 12 ounces of water you drink before a meal surely has a lot to do with that sensation of feeling full.

    The makers of Plexus Slim sure do make a lot of promises, too. They reference that their product will burn fat instead of muscle (muscle contains protein and is more nutritious for your body to use as fuel than fat is), that it will promote healthy blood glucose as well as cholesterol and blood pressure. However, they also note that these statements haven’t been evaluated by the FDA. Really, this product is designed to suppress appetite, nothing more. Why promise other health benefits that may or may not actually occur, that customers aren’t even looking for?

    Further, the overview very plainly says “no meal replacement shakes.” Call us biased, but we think that meal replacement shakes are very helpful if your goal is to lose weight. They help with portion control, provide you with necessary nutrients, and don’t take time to prepare, unlike most recipes that aid weight loss (unless you’re eating a salad, but even those may take some time).

    The other thing we just couldn’t quite shake was that when explaining how to take this supplement in the directions, there was no mention of pairing with a healthy, well rounded meal. Nothing about nutrition, exercise, or following a healthy routine or lifestyle. It seems like Plexus Slim is being marketed as a magic powder that will make you eat less which will consequentially make you lose weight. That simply isn’t how weight loss works.

    All of the ingredients in this supplement are not potent enough, even combined, to have a significant effect on weight loss. It can surely assist anyone who is striving to maintain a healthy diet and exercising, even lightly. But alone, it is simply not enough. Regardless of whether or not this product suppresses your appetite (which, given the evidence, it should), you will not lose weight if the meals that you’re eating are fast food and high sugar desserts.

    We believe that Plexus Slim may very well be an effective appetite suppressant and helpful in assisting your weight loss goals if you also aim to eat well and exercise. There is no quick fix or shortcut to losing weight. If you don’t change your habits permanently, even if you do reach your goal, the weight will come back if you aren’t consistent. It seems like this product makes promises that it simply cannot keep.

      *I am in no way affiliated with Plexus. Nor do I use it.*

      Drinking half your body weight in ounces of water each day is a general recommendation for staying properly hydrated. And it’s not difficult nor does it leave you racing to the bathroom every few minutes.

      Chronic mild dehydration is often manifested as hunger.

      Drinking the proper amount of water is crucial regardless of what supplement you’re taking. Nothing will work well if you aren’t drinking enough water.

      Plexus products are a vitamin product too often called a cure or remedy for disease. Save your money and eat better, avoid sugar and fried foods. Drink more clean water, get sleep. See your doctors for medical care. Avoid scams.

      I’m not sure why Plexis Slim is being compared to diet shakes. It is NOT a diet shake. You can certainly use diet shakes while using an appetite suppressant (which Plexis Slim is). I have been using it for two months and have lost 8 pounds. I feel better, sleep better, have more energy and don’t have food cravings. Of course, as I always have, I eat healthy foods. Why would anyone waste their money purchasing this or any other product and eat fast foods? Either you are trying to improve your health/weight or you are not. This article makes no sense to me.

      My cousin sells this and has been trying to sell me on it for a year. I’m a cynic and wanted to do some research on it first. For starters it looks like just one more MLM company. Worse, the price for one product, (Plexus Slim), is totally ridiculous and of course they want you to buy several products at a time at equally exorbitant prices. Then I read that you need to drink half your body weight in oz of water but there’s no way working people can do that. You’d get nothing done but drinking water and running to the bathroom. And let’s be honest…you could probably benefit from the water and exercise and just skip the high priced energy drink and achieve the same results. There are lots of reviews on different sites and as you might imagine, they’re mixed…for every one who raves about it, someone else pans it. Who to believe? My cousin claims it gives her energy and even though she also claims to have lost weight, it’s not enough to be obvious and she’s been on this stuff for a long time. Plus she wants to sell a lot of it so she’s hardly an unbiased source. I think I’ll save my money and pass.

      I originally did not want to try it. After someone posted to drink it with coconut milk and strawberries ( I also mix my plexus slim in it) I love the vanilla! It is a light breakfast for me. Keeps me energized throughout the day. Tastes great and it is not a heavy thick shake, which is what I was afraid it would be. I can sell, but only signed up for the better pricing.

      I don’t need to lose weight but started taking Plexus because I heard it helped regulate blood sugar. I have (had) extreme hypoglycemia to the point of feeling extremely shaky and passing out. Since I have started this product I have not had one episode of this! I’ve been on it for 3 months now and it has been a huge life changer for me. I don’t sell this product either so this review is unbiased.

      Plexus slim is not a meal replacement, so why are you comparing it to them? Plexus is designed to drink before you start your day so you won’t crave those “bad foods” . Plexus also promotes eating foods that are good in healthy for you with this drink, eating real food is better for you than a meal replacement shake.
      With that being said, find what works for you because persons’ body and lifestyle is different!

      AND* It IS NOT a meal replacement shake!! You mix it with 8-10 oz. of water and drink it first thing in the morning. Tastes great (pomagranite cherry flavor) and it keeps your blood sugar level in normal range for 12-14 hours. If you eat something with a lot of carbs like pasta or cake, take a Block capsule and it will block up to 48% of the carbs from being broken down and digested. But just normal eating will not make you dump increased insulin like it usually does. That in itself curbs your appetite because you dont have the swing in blood sugar levels. It ‘s when they drop that your crave sugars/carbs ie:junk. just your body trying to get some sugar in fast. It’s a great addition to your healthy eating goal. And the weight just falls off. It’s not overnight but look at some of the results after a few months on Triplex. A-Mazing!!

      Plexus Slim has indeed helped me lose weight and inches, given me energy, given me a joy in life that I didn’t have prior to using the Slim, it taste great (Cherry Pomegranate) is sweetened with Stevia, has only 12 calories, helped to curb my sweet tooth, is a ‘snack’ replacement NOT a meal replacement and wasn’t intended to be. I don’t want to EVER be without my Plexus Slim!

        WOW! This is alarming…out of curiosity…how was it proven that Plexus is what caused your gastrointestinal bleed? Do you have other major health issues, that may actually be the result of your bleed? How long were you taking the Plexus? What Plexus products were you taking, how often, and how much?

      If you taking plexus slim as a shake. You are wrong this is a false comparsion. Plexus has a shake, but it is not the slim. You need to get your information correct. The product details are the correct, but it is not a shake meal replacement. You need to look at their products and get the information correct.

      I absolutely love the pink drink and X factor supplements. Those two products alone help me with my blood sugar and energy level. I don’t care for shakes so that why I do the pink drink. It tastes just link juice. After about three weeks the sluggish feeling was gone. I went to see my doctor for my well woman visit and she was amazed at my blood results. I’m vitamin D deficient and anemic. Thee worst combination to have. It’s not a problem anymore. My doctor started recommending it to some of her other patients. I Can only vouch for those two products.

Drink if it makes you think it is helping, but the real way to lose weight is eat healthy and exercise. Bottom line it is a scam!!

      So my wife thought it would be great to make extra money to become an embassador for plexus. Meaning a person who sells plexus products. After paying the ennui tail start up kit things didn’t work out on sales. You suppose elf need to sell at least $100.00 per month of products to stay as an embassador for plexus or you were terminated as a sales rep. Needless to say she didn’t. Plexus continued to pull $119.00 from our checking acct. for the past three months with no product received. No email confirmation on what was being sent or when. After trying to call several times to plexus support with long waiting periods and messages left with no phone calls returned to us. They said sorry we shipped products to you and we need to contact the post office and start a claim with them. Like that would work. Unprofessional rude customer support staff who didn’t care. Oh and to receive any money back on products they have to be returned within 5 days. I thought they have a 60 day money back garuntee Guess not only if you don’t like the product if you receive them. SCAM!!!

        I have been on plexus for about 3 weeks. I’ve also been on the Accelerator which is basically just a laxative. No weight loss at all and it keeps me awake at night. I have many questions about their product. I have called several times and been on hold for a total of 3 hours with no answer. I have sent emails and no response. Terrible customer service. Also there is no public forum on their website to express any concerns or questions. I’m thinking snake oil here.

      First off, Plexus is not a shake or a meal replacement. It’s a great tasting drink that helps stabilize your blood sugar, cholesterol and blood pressure. It also helps you lose weight. Plexus Worldwide has numerous other products that are meant to help you get healthier. I myself, have gotten off of several medications because Plexus has gotten me healthy enough that I no longer need them. This has been proven by my blood tests. My doctors are amazed! We have a full 60 day money back guarantee. Check out my blog at http://www.theplexusblog.com

      There are many horror stories about Plexus products, just like the ‘new’ Herbalife. The people hyping this stuff most likely are resellers and have a vested interest in it’s success since these companies make you buy an enormous amount of their cut rate and sometimes dangerous products. Search for Plexus scams and you’ll find many of them.

      and the review posted was honest and specifically mentioned that it’s not a meal replacement but because anything that hurts their cult mentality will get their dander up. Eat healthy, exercise and skip these mystery products. Your body will love you more.

      I tried anything from dieting to weight loss products to natural supplements which included Trim Spa, Healthy Trim, Zantrex, Hydroxycut, Xenadrine, Slim Quick, Alli—WHICH IS FDA APPROVED, Raspberry Keytones, Garcinia Cambogia, Kelp, Green Tea, Chromium Picolinate, and many others! With most of these, I was able to lose 5-7 Lbs. and nothing more! I was borderline Type II, each time I went to the doctor, there was a new reason my health was declining! I suffer from Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, MVP, and other conditions which limit activity so, exercise wasn’t really an option! I needed to lose weight bad, my latest doctor visit told me I was Borderline Type II Diabetic! My husband found out about Plexus Slim through a friend, and showed me the post. I researched it, talked to people, and I decided to give it a try—if it doesn’t work there’s the 60 Day Money Back Guarantee so, I will get my money back!

      When I started Plexus Slim and Accelerator (the original Accelerator not Accelerator+), it immediately decreased my Fibromyalgia pain and Fatigue. I started these products for WEIGHT LOSS, nothing else! I start getting excited about the possibilities since, this first day, I FEEL SO GOOD, and I continue taking it in hopes of losing weight.

      By Day 7, I was no longer taking naps, had more energy, I was having less flares, and I LOST 4.6 LBS., 1 1/2 Inches off of my waist, 1 1/2 Inches off of my left thigh, 1 1/2 Inches off of my right thigh for a total of 4 1/2 MEASURED INCHES! My first two months resulted in 16 Lbs. lost. I’ve been using the Plexus Slim for over a year, and I HAVE LOST over 55 Lbs. and 27 MEASURED Inches! I will continue using Plexus until they go out of business or until it stops giving me relief from my Fibro and other conditions!

      I bought plexus slim and pill back hn March and became a premier member hoping that this would help me lose weight i started with 180.5 lbs and after taking them like your suppose to only went down to 176 after the first three weeks. Even after taking them the way i was suppose to daily and eating better i began to gain weight back to 180 and now at 183. plexus did NOT work for me;. It does give you a boost of enegery but besides that i did not benifit from this product. OH and if it does not work for you make sure to call right at the 60 day after purcharing because they will not RETURN your money back. I dont recomend anyone buying this product IT DOES NOT WORK.

      Plexus is a amazing product it is designed to help you balance your blood glucose in the most natural way…… it is to improve your health and despite your study living off of shakes is not healthy …. the human body is ment to be fueled by real food …… eating real food ( and eating right ) is what plexus encourages ….. plexus has helped myself as well as many others maintain & loose weight also my dad had been able to stop taking lipitor as well as blood pressure meds ( his Dr. was very impressed with his improvements) plexus has helped me curb my sugar cravings ….. I do not drink soda @ all the taste makes me sick… I hope when folks try plexus they give it @ least 3 months ……

      This is the most absurd “study” I have found on the internet! You are comparing the Plexus Slim to meal replacement shakes! Slim in NOT a meal replacement! Their 96 shakes should be compared to these shakes and will blow them away! The cost is better, the ingredients are better, and the taste is WAY better! I hate it when all the information isn’t presented. Is this “review” run by someone from one of the top companies listed? Irresponsible.

        I’ve become very familiar with Plexus Slim as I take the product. First, this review is comparing Plexus Slim with meal replacement shakes and this particular product Plexus Slim is not a meal replacement. Plexus Worldwide makes another product which should have been placed in this review and it’s called Plexus 96 which contains 15g protein, 2g sugar, 2g carbs, 10mg sodium, 100 calories, 1g fiber, soy protein free, no artificial sweetner and is $2.32/serving. Now you can do an accurate comparison.
