HEY! DO NOT Buy Plexus Slim Until You Read My REVIEW Based on Fully Researched Information! Ingredients, Results, Warnings, and USER FEEDBACK With 900+ Comments Included on DIETBLY!
Last Update: May 2017

In the world of weight loss supplements and pills, you often face the problem whether to take it slow and steady while being careful, or see significant results right away. Most people want the best of both, but that seems out of reach.

The promise of Plexus Slim is to give you that high caliber weight loss solution without putting yourself at high risk, and that is definitely a promise worth looking into.

If those claims are true, then this supplement might be a complete no-brainer for a great number of people, so I’m going to cast a light on it and give it a thorough look to see what you can really expect!

Easy Way to Prepare Your Plexus Slim Pink Drink

Plexus pink drink

If you have your blood sugar levels out of balance, you can bet that the hormones necessary to tell you to stop eating are compromised. This is when Plexus Slim supplement comes into play. It is rich in various ingredients and substances that will help you to suppress your appetite.

To make the Plexus Slim powder work, all you have to do is to:

  1. Get a glass or a shaker bottle
  2. Open 1 slim pack of your Plexus Slim powder
  3. Get it into your glass or shaker
  4. Pour in 12-20 ounces of water
  5. Mix or shake it well
  6. Drink it around 30 minutes before a meal (once a day)

If you want to experience much better (and faster) results, combine this powder with a Plexus Slim Accelerator. Formulas of both products were designed to be synergistic and used together, so do not try to use accelerator on its own.

Ingredients in Plexus Slim Old Formula (DISCONTINUED)

plexus slim ingredients

Plexus Slim

Ingredients: Chromium (as chromium polynicotinate) (200mcg), Plexus Slim Blend (530mg)

Proprietary blend: Green coffee bean extract (with chlorogenic acid and less than 2% natural caffeine), Garcinia cambogia fruit extract, alpha lipoic acid

Other ingredients: Polydextrose, citric acid, natural flavors, beet extract, stevia leaf extract, luo-han-guo fruit extract, guar gum, silicon dioxide

As you will learn below, there are several potent ingredients in the original formula of Plexus Slim pink drink. However, I have to say that producing company is hiding the precise amounts of individual ingredients that are included in their Plexus Slim blend – this is always a red flag for us.

Chromium (as chromium polynicotinate) (200mcg)

Chromium plays an important role with regards to stabilizing blood sugar levels in your body (and hence minimizing food cravings). I have found a good article about chromium that points out its role with regards to weight loss:

“Chromium supplementation is a simple method to improve blood sugar control in some people. Several studies have evaluated the effect of chromium on glucose levels with varied results, but a significant number of these studies have shown that chromium can normalize blood sugar levels, improve blood sugar utilization and decrease insulin requirements in patients with glucose intolerance and insulin resistance.”

Plexus Slim Blend (530mg)

This special blend includes Green coffee bean extract (with chlorogenic acid and less than 2% natural caffeine), Garcinia cambogia fruit extract and alpha lipoic acid. There are a lot of articles and studies dealing with these three substances.

I really liked the article dealing with studies of Green Coffee Beans and weight loss:

“In a recent small, 22-week study, researchers gave 16 overweight adults low doses of green coffee bean extract (350 mg, twice a day), high doses of the supplement (350 mg, 3 times a day), or a placebo (3 times a day) for 6 weeks each with a 2-week break of not taking the pills between sequences. Subjects were encouraged to be physically active, but no dietary changes were recommended.”

“Results of the study, funded by Applied Food Sciences, Inc. (a company that manufactures green coffee bean extract) and published in the journal Diabetes, Metabolic Syndrome and Obesity, found that subjects who took the extract lost about 18 pounds on average — more than 10 percent of their body weight. No adverse side effects were noted.”

Cho, A. S., et al. (2010). “Chlorogenic acid exhibits anti-obesity property and improves lipid metabolism in high-fat diet-induced-obese mice“, in Food and Chemical Toxicology, Vol. 48(3).

From a plethora of articles dealing with Garcinia Cambogia extract, I would like to point out one by Dr. Axe, that is analysing it into details:

“Some studies have found that garcinia cambogia might, in fact, be able to help with low amounts of fat loss, plus some of the other health concerns mentioned above, although its effects are rarely strong or consistent. For example, research suggests that HCA works by blocking a certain enzyme called adenosine triphosphatase-citrate-lyase, which contributes to the formation of fat cells.”

“Studies have also suggested that it’s possible that HCA found in garcinia cambogia can help lower someone’s appetite by increasing production of the neurotransmitter serotonin, which is associated with calm, happy feelings and. therefore, sometimes appetite suppression, less cravings and reduced desire for comfort foods.”

There is a great and very detailed article on ALA and its effect on weight loss:

“While ALA is often touted as primarily a powerful antioxidant, ALA seems to have potentially beneficial effects on fat loss as well as prevention of further fat gain.”

“Multiple studies have shown that ALA stimulates the activation of an enzyme called 5’-adenosine monophosphate kinase (AMPK) in muscle and fat tissue. AMPK is the cells fuel gauge and switches it into a state that optimizes fat oxidation.”

Koh, E. H., et al. (2011). “Effects of alpha-lipoic Acid on body weight in obese subjects“, in The American Journal of Medicine, Vol. 124(1).

Other ingredients

These include substances, such as Polydextrose, citric acid, natural flavors, beet extract, stevia leaf extract, luo-han-guo fruit extract, guar gum, silicon dioxide.

Ingredients in Plexus Slim New Formula

New Plexus Slim ingredients

New Plexus Slim

Ingredients: Chromium (as chromium polynicotinate) (200mcg), Xylooligosaccharide (1,000mg), Plexus Slim blend (531mg)

Proprietary blend: Green coffee bean extract (with 50% chlorogenic acid and less than 2% natural caffeine), Garcinia cambogia fruit extract, alpha lipoic acid and Mulberry fruit extract

Other ingredients: Citric acid, natural flavors, stevia leaf extract, beet root extract, cellulose gum, silicon dioxide

The official producing company has recently (at the end of 2016) launched a New Plexus Slim. Its formula is slightly different than its original version.

Chromium (as chromium polynicotinate) (200mcg)

This substance is used in the old formula as well. You can see more about this ingredient in above section.

Xylooligosaccharide (1,000mg)

Everyone knows that without healthy guts you will have a much harder time when trying to lose weight. Luckily, this substance is a powerful prebiotic that supports a healthy gut flora:

“Although these data are controversial, they suggest that specific phyla, classes or species of bacteria, or bacterial metabolic activities could be beneficial or detrimental to patients with obesity. The gut microbiota is, therefore, a potential nutritional and pharmacological target in the management of obesity and obesity-related disorders.

Delzenne, N.M., et al. (2011). “Targeting gut microbiota in obesity: effects of prebiotics and probiotics“, in Nature Reviews Endocrinology, Vol. 7, p. 639-646.

Plexus Slim blend (531mg)

This special blend includes Green coffee bean extract (with 50% chlorogenic acid and less than 2% natural caffeine), Garcinia cambogia fruit extract, alpha lipoic acid and Mulberry fruit extract. I have dealt with first three ingredients in the section above (dealing with the old Plexus Slim formula). However, there is one new ingredient added.

I have discovered an interesting research study that presents substances extracted from Mulberry fruit as very effective for weight loss and management in cases of high-fat diets (not in normal diets):

“The phytochemical constituents of a freeze-dried powder of mulberry (Morus alba L.) fruit (MFP) were determined. The hypolipidemic and antioxidant effects of the MFP as a dietary supplement were evaluated in rats who were fed 4 weeks of either a high-fat or a normal diet supplemented with 5% or 10% MFP. Administration of MFP to rats on a high-fat diet resulted in a significant decline in levels of serum and liver triglyceride, total cholesterol, serum low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, and a decrease in the atherogenic index, while the serum high-density lipoprotein cholesterol was significantly increased.

Yang, X., et al. (2010). “Hypolipidemic and antioxidant effects of mulberry (Morus alba L.) fruit in hyperlipidaemia rats“, in Food and Chemical Toxicology, Vol. 48(8-9), p. 2374–2379.

Other ingredients

These include substances such as Citric acid, natural flavors, stevia leaf extract, beet root extract, cellulose gum, silicon dioxide.

2 Controversial Warnings for This Product

WARNING#1 Issued by Canada (February 7, 2014):

“The Australia Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) warned consumers not to use these products as they were found to contain 1,3-dimethylamylamine (DMAA), a drug that is not approved for sale in Canada!”

WARNING#2 Issued by Australian Government (July 16, 2013):

The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) has tested Plexus Slim Accelerator capsules and Plexus Slim Accelerator 3 Day Trial pack capsules and found that:

  • They contain the undeclared banned chemical 1,3-dimethylamylamine (DMAA)
  • Consumers are advised that DMAA is listed in Appendix C of the Standard for the Uniform Scheduling of Medicines and Poisons (SUSMP). Substances within Appendix C are of such danger to health as to warrant prohibition of sale, supply and use.

Risks associated with its use include high blood pressure, psychiatric disorders, bleeding in the brain and stroke.”

It’s important to say that the ingredients can change, and these warnings are dated back to July 2013 so they may be no longer valid. However, we have decided to keep these posted as we believe that history of a product is important as well.

Useful Results & Customer Opinions

Comment from Deborah (Positive)

“Thanks for your fine article! I began Plexus Slim to lose weight almost 2 years ago! Little did I know what was in store for me as I continued my awesome journey!”

“Since then, I have been taken off all meds and have become an active member in society now, thanks to Plexus helping my body to work the way that it was meant to work! I’m a new person thanks to the Pink Drink!”

“With all the ingredients in our foods these days, our bodies do not recognize a lot of them so they get stored in our organs, bones, joints, brains, etc.,, causing so many unexplained symptoms. And we all know that eating properly is very expensive, so going to all organic and unprocessed foods is a great idea, but it’s difficult to be able to do that and survive in today’s society.”

“Plexus actually helps to eliminate all the bad things our bodies store, I’ve seen so many people get well after being sick for years, just because they tried Plexus. Once you start feeling better, thinking clearer, and gaining more energy, you can very easily begin to do things that you weren’t able to before, so now, exercise, proper nutrition, and just making better decisions about your health are literally a piece of cake!”

Comment from Tiffany (Negative)

“I tried the Plexus Pink Drink yesterday at noon, by 3 am I was itching all over. When I woke up this morning my eyes were swollen shut, I had hives on my ears, chest elbows hands fingers and legs.”

“Thankfully I was able to get into the DR right away, I was having a horrible reaction to it!!! Now going on 24 hours since I took it my chest is so incredibly tight and sore, and it is incredibly hard to breathe… It looks like this isn’t for me!”

Comment from Maude (Positive)

“It works, I was the same as you! Actually, I had tried EVERYTHING and nothing worked…then I tried it and in one week I went from being tired and depressed because I didn’t have the energy to get up and do anything (much less exercise). In a week I had lost 8 pounds and I was running again. I highly recommend it.”

“I’m 61 years old and I was always a size 8 and weighed 130, then I went through menopause. I gained 55 pounds and was miserable. I started taking it and now I am back to running again, lifting weights, feeling good and HAPPY. For the first time in years I am really HAPPY. I won’t stop taking it, even when I reach my goal I want to keep it off and it helps you do that too. I’m a firm believer in it!”

Comment from Morgan (Negative)

“After using Plexus Slim diligently and correctly for one month, I came away with 6 extra pounds (5’3, 125 normally) and crazy horrible hormone fluctuations. In the 2 months since coming off of Plexus, my PMS has lasted 2 full weeks and is just miserable (mood swings, extreme bloating, depression, etc). I never struggled with this before. Anyone else has this issue??”

Comment from Beth Ann (Positive)

“I have to tell you from personal experience: I use Plexus, My husband saw the results I was getting and he started it too…While I have no problem buying two monthly supplies of the Plexus and the accelerator for us, because the results have been great….it IS pricey.”

“By simply signing up as a consultant/ambassador etc for the product I save a considerable amount each month. (when someone asks if I’ve lost weight, I tell them YES, and ONLY if they ask what I did, will I share the Plexus story)”

“Right now I simply use the product for maintenance 4 days a week. I have MS and while there is no MIRACLE cure for that, Plexus has helped me balance other issues caused by the medication I AM on for this disease. I suffer from low blood sodium, low vitamin B and D and fluctuating glucose levels, as well as very low energy levels (I tire very easily).”

Comment from Heidi (Positive)

“First of all, I had a long list of health problems(migraines, nausea, fatigue, psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis, diabetes, problems with sun and heat, severe pain) was very sick and couldn’t walk, cut my food, dress myself … for 6 years… I can’t eat processed foods or take medicines from a doctor….”

“My body has a hard time with both… so I to got on Herbalife there I at least had food, something to get in my system… love our supplements, cold processed and really getting into the body… and I lost 40 pounds 32 inches…. do not have all the health issues, I have my psoriatic arthritis, but I have control of it, instead of it controlling me…. psoriasis, I still get, it’s amazing.”

Comment from Christina Anthony (Positive)

“I just started taking Plexus Slim too, along with one accelerator and listen to my body so when I begin to feel a bit of that racing feeling you are talking about, I drink water… which is what is recommended and I think that feeling comes on as my body is depleted and toxins need flushing I need more water. As soon as I have a large glass of water, that feeling is gone.”

Overall, customers are not always sure about this product. Some are remarkably positive about it while others complain about few issues and side-effects.

Best Place to Buy Plexus Slim

new official plexus slim website screenshot

This is how official website of Plexus Slim looks like – Plexusworldwide.com

These days, it is easy to get scammed when making your purchase through the internet, especially in the case of weight loss pills and supplements. That is why we always recommend making your purchase through the official product website.

It is called – plexusworldwide.com – and one month supply of Plexus Slim (if you take it only once a day) will cost you $84.95 (old formula). Sadly, you can not purchase new Plexus Slim formula through the official website at the time of writing but I will keep you updated. Purchasing your product through the plexusworldwide.com comes with several advantages.

Money back guarantee

The official product website points out that you can try Plexus Slim risk-free for 60 days. Your purchase is protected by a very advantageous money back guarantee that is valid for 60 days since you make your purchase.

Here is a citation from their guarantee page:

“If you are unsatisfied with a product, you have a full 60 days from the date of purchase to request a full, prompt refund. No hassles, no questions.”

“To request a refund, simply contact Customer Service at 480-998-3490. One of our agents will get to work quickly processing your refund and answering your questions.”

“This guarantee can only be used once per product and excludes certain promotional items. If you have purchased a Plexus product directly from your Ambassador, your Ambassador will issue a refund to you.”

Shipping

As far as shipping goes, I have managed to get this list of countries where the official e-shop ships their products:

– The United States, Canada, Australia & New Zealand

As you can see, buying your Plexus Slim on the official product website (or an official Ambassador) is much safer as your purchase will be protected by a 60-day money back guarantee.

Price of Products

The Plexus company produces a lot of products for weight management, not only the Plexus Slim. However, all these products are quite expensive. Just have a look:

  • Original Plexus Slim (30 Day Supply) = $84.95
  • New Plexus Slim (30 Day Supply) = $87.95
  • Plexus Accelerator+ (30 day supply) = $39.95
  • Plexus Boost (30 day supply) = $39.95
  • Plexus Block (30 day supply) = $39.95
  • Original Plexus Slim & Accelerator+ Combo= $114.95

If you ask me, paying over $100.00 for a monthly supply of weight loss pills that you are not 100% sure will work for you is overkill. Especially when there are more affordable options on the market these days.

Just imagine that losing a significant amount of body fat will take you at least 3-6 months. That would be around $350.00-$650.00 for something that you are not 100% sure will work for you.

Final Verdict: Promising Solution to Losing Excessive Pounds

Product Overview

Product name: Plexus Slim
Producing company: Plexus Worldwide
Official website: http://plexusworldwide.com
GNC offer: Not available
Amazon offer: Yes (see offer)

I have to say that the formula of Plexus Slim includes many potent ingredients that are useful if you want to lose weight. These are often included in other appetite suppressants that are on the market these days. Although this product looks really promising, it comes with a few drawbacks.

Expensive

My biggest issue is its price. You will pay around $84.95 for a one-month supply. However, you can get much more sophisticated and efficient weight loss pills for under $70.00 per month.

Formula not completely transparent

The second problem I see is the fact that manufacturing company does not declare precise numbers for individual active ingredients used in their “Plexus Slim blend“. They only declare how much of this blend is used overall.

Don’t forget to read other reviews of Plexus Slim on reputable websites like AuthorityNutrition.com, DietSpotlight.com or DietsInReview.com

If you are convinced that this product is the right solution for you, then I highly recommend getting your hands on this product directly through official product ambassadors and a website – PlexusWorldwide.com. This way your purchase will be covered by a 60-day money back guarantee.
