Plexus Slim Review

Plexus Slim Facts

  • Manufactured by Plexus Worldwide Inc. based in Arizona
  • Distributors use Multi Level Marketing (MLM) scheme
  • Also known as the “Pink Drink”

The product is manufactured by Plexus Worldwide Inc who are based in Scottsdale, Arizona. The official website differs from most sites in that it’s more of a company brochure site promoting products to both consumers and network marketers.

That’s right you can earn money from home by starting your own Plexus home-based business. Basically you can sign up to become, what Plexus call “Ambassadors” (essentially distributors), whereby you promote the products and then sell directly to consumers. If you’re not familiar with this business model it’s called multi level marketing (MLM).

Although some dubious marketers in the past (a few are probably still going) have promoted MLM programmes, Plexus appear to be a genuine company dedicated to providing a good distributor base. This explains why when researching this product we came across a number of sites promoting Plexus supplements.

There are a number of other products by Plexus Worldwide too, some of which can be combined with Plexus Slim for apparently faster effects. These include Plexus Slim/Accelerator Combo, Plexus Bio Cleanse, ProBio5 and the FAST RELIEF range of creams or capsules.

Plexus Slim is straightforward to take you simply poor the contents of a sachet into 12oz of water 30 minutes before one of your mail meals. Although only one sachet is suggested, consumers with a lot of weight to lose or have particularly struggle with excess weight can recommended to take 2 sachets per day.

According to the manufacturer most people experience the benefits of the supplement after 2 weeks of taking it, although this period and magnitude of weight loss varies from person to person.

Plexus Slim Concerns:

  • Fairly expensive supplement
  • Too few proven weight loss ingredients and quantities not revealed
  • One clinical trial with just 8 subjects with Type 2 diabetes

What Does Plexus Slim Claim To Do?

This “simple” weight loss solution claims to be….

the all-natural way to lose weight and inches by burning fat, not muscle

Plexus Slim claims to do this and more by:

  • Safely and effectively managing weight
  • Regulating blood sugar levels
  • Maintain a healthy blood pressure
  • Promote beneficial cholesterol levels

What sets Plexus Slim apart from many other supplements, according to the manufacturer contains:

  • No caffeine
  • No stimulants
  • No meal replacements
  • No shakes

So how does this supplement reduce binge eating and improve will power?

So What Is Plexus Slim and What Are The Ingredients For Plexus Slim?

This supplement is not a meal replacement shake but a powder that is dissolved in 12 ounces of water and taken before one of your main meals each day.

No supplement fact label is available and here is little information on the proprietary formula used in Plexus Slim. Apart from Chromium, most of the remaining ingredients won’t be too familiar, even to consumers who have a keen interest in reading supplement labels.

  • Polydextrose: An indigestible glucose that is classified as a soluble fiber and often used in foods to increase the “non-dietary fiber content of food”.
    Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polydextrose
  • Citric Acid: Often used to add an acidic or sour taste to foods and soft drinks and known as the addictive E330 in the European Union (EU).
  • Natural Flavors: No idea what and why these are used.
  • Beet Root & Grape Skin Extract: Good source of fiber if consumed in sufficient amounts could help you feel fuller by adding bulk in the stomach.
  • Stevia Extract: An herb from the Chrysanthemum family that grows in parts of Brazil and Paraquay. Often used as a sweetener and sugar substitute and benefits from having minimal impact on blood glucose levels.
    Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stevia
  • Lo Han Extract: The scientific name “Siraitia grosvenori” is frequently used in Southern China as a longevity aid. It’s said to have a number of benefits, such as alleviating constipation, chronic enteritis and respiratory ailments. Lo Han is also used as a sweetener in food and drinks.
    Source: http://www.drugs.com/npp/luo-han-guo.html
  • Chlorogenic Acid (Plant Extract): Found in green coffee beans, Chlorogenic acid prevents the release of glucose to the blood stream and is suggested to promote increased fat burning. Received lots of media attention recently attributing the rise of green coffee bean extract supplements on the market.
    Source: http://examine.com/supplements/Chlorogenic+Acid/
  • Citrin K (Garcinia Cambogia): A patented form of hydroxycitric acid (HCA) that includes potassium, manufactured by Sabinsa Corporation. Evidence to suggest may help weight loss by suppressing appetite, stimulating the metabolic rate and suppressing lipogenesis. Weight loss results have been shown in certain amounts (at least 500mg) but no indication how much is included here.
    Source: http://www.sabinsa.com/products/faq/citrin/
  • Alpha Lipoic Acid: An antioxidant that is said to attack free radicals in the body produced by toxins and waste in the body. Some studies have shown alpha-lipoic acid to help lower blood sugar levels and so suggested to help diabetic type conditions. Although there aren’t established dosages its been suggested to be beneficial for diabetic conditions when taking 800mg daily.
    Source: http://www.umm.edu/altmed/articles/alpha-lipoic-000285.htm
  • Oxypregnane Steroidal Glycoside (Plant Extract): There is no mention other than this ingredient helps to suppress appetite. After a little digging we found it’s simply a fancy and somewhat sounding name for Hoodia Gordonii (P57), the ingredient used in hundreds of supplements promoted as an appetite suppressant. Serious doubt has been raised at to the effectiveness of this ingredient. Again no idea of the type and amount used here.
    Source: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20414860
  • Chromium: Often seen in dietary supplements as it’s said to help regulate blood glucose levels. Although popular there is conflicting evidence from studies, some suggesting it works whilst others refute the claims. It’s the only ingredient here that is linked to and is suggested to promote weight loss.
    Source: http://ods.od.nih.gov/factsheets/Chromium-HealthProfessional/

So What Does All This Mean?

The lack of stimulants and caffeine will appeal to consumers who are sensitive to these ingredients.

There is little information about the ingredients used in Plexus Slim. A greater look into the science behind the ingredients suggests few (actually just two) have any significant weight loss benefits, and a marginal one at that!

Does Plexus Slim Have Any Side Effects?

According to Plexus Worldwide the answer is simply NO.

They claim that “extensive clinical research” has shown no side effects with any medications or supplements. That’s a fairly big claim and clearly they can’t have tested their supplement with EVERY medication out there. So we would urge caution if you’re taking any prescription medication and suggest you speak to your medical professional first before taking!

Caution: As is common with most diet pills we would refrain from taking Plexus Slim if breast feeding, have a body mass index (BMI) under 18.5 and are under 18 years of age.

Any Plexus Slim Reviews From Customers?

There are some great looking customer testimonials on the official Plexus website. Some of them are “Ambassadors” themselves and so could be a little biased towards the product considering they are marketing them as well.

Otherwise though there are, in most cases, before and after pictures for most testimonials, along with how much weight they have lost. There is no indication how recent the testimonials are though and of course we couldn’t verify if they are genuine or not.

So Does Plexus Slim Work?

When asked how effective Plexus Slim is, the manufacturers claim the effects are “subtle yet effective” and that most people see the benefits after 2 weeks of taking it. We didn’t think this was particularly encouraging but at least they aren’t overselling the weight loss claims like many other products.

So what are the chances of the “pink drink” working?

There is one clinical study undertaken in 2008 that supports Plexus Slim can work to reduce glucose levels in Type 2 diabetics. A secondary outcome from the study showed that subjects lost weight too.

The 8 subjects in the study experienced weight loss between 7 and an impressive 50 pounds. Whilst the study lasted 18 weeks it’s unclear if dietary intake or exercise patterns were monitored. With 3 of the subjects losing less than 0.6 pound per week, weight loss results for some weren’t exactly mind blowing!

Whilst the study looks promising there are way too many variables to draw conclusions from. It’s also worth noting that the sample of 8 subjects is incredibly small and all suffered from Type 2 diabetics.

There is no clinical reference for this study or any indication if it’s been published in any journal, so it’s not possible to evaluate the study in any depth.

What is more concerning though, is that apart from Chromium and Citrin K, none of the other ingredients appear to be linked to or to promote weight loss!

There is also scant information about the ingredients in the proprietary blend used in this supplement. With no details of the amounts used it’s impossible to judge how effective they will be and if sufficient quantities exist to have any weight loss benefits.

Where Can I Buy Plexus Slim?

The range of Plexus products are available directly from the official website or from one of the many distributors (Ambassadors).

Making an online “retail purchase” on the official website is only possible if you have an Ambassador ID. Otherwise you need to place your order by calling customer services.

Once you get through to an order page (either the official site or an Ambassadors site) you’re presented with two options to purchase, a “retail” or “preferred” purchase. The “Retail purchase” is for a one-off order whereas the “Preferred Purchase” is for enrolment in an auto-shipping programme where you’re automatically billed monthly for the new products sent each month. Although you can save a little, but not too much, money with the “Preferred” option you can only cancel after 15 days of your initial purchase.

The cost for one-month of Plexus Slim is $84.95 for one-off payments or $79.95 if you use the preferred auto-shipping payment option.

The Plexus Slim/Accelerator combo costs a staggering $114.95 per month or slightly cheaper at $99.95 for the auto-shipped payment option.

What About a Guarantee?

The manufacturer is so confident that their products work they give a 60-day money-back guarantee. Any unused product and the original packaging needs to be returned either directly to the company or to the Ambassador you made the purchase from.

Retail consumers have up to 60 days we which to get a refund with Preferred consumers from 15 to 16 days. A shipping and handling fee is taken from the product refund.

Watchdog Verdict

At first glance Plexus Slim looks to be an attractive product that could give you the answer to your weight loss. Backed by a company that reveals their contact information and offers what looks to be a great guarantee.

What more could you want? Well, for one weight loss ingredients in the right amounts to work and that don’t cost the earth!

This supplement is fairly expensive especially for a proprietary blend that we weren’t 100% convinced offers sufficient weight loss ingredients to actually work.

At these prices, in such a competitive field, we would recommend looking at other more cost effective supplements. We reject Plexus Slim.

    I use Plexus and my wife is an ambassador too. I have lost 12 pounds and 8 inches total all in 6 months time. I can vouch that it does suppress appetite and as many people report, gives you increased energy throughout the day. As far as blood sugar levels, I am deployed but plan to have a blood test after I get home.

    Plexus specifically recommends to take half your body weight and to drink this amount (in ozs) of water per day. This is the hard part for some people including myself at times.

    I have one question for you. Are you affliliated in any way with Phentaslim? The reason I ask is because everything you have to say about them is positive and nothing is perfect. How could this product be without faults entirely that you would give it such a rave review to the point it seems biased? Thanks for your time.

    • jrw says:

      On any sensible diet you can lose 1½ – 2 lbs per week and combined with exercise can lose inches as well. 6 months = 24 weeks x 1½ lbs = 36 lbs loss. If you drink half your body weight in water mixed with Plexus, you may even put yourself in danger of water poisoning. What if you weighed 400 lbs and tried this, desperate to lose weight? You’d have to drink 200 oz of water infused with Plexus/day or 25 8oz glasses. Recommended is eight 8 oz glasses per day. Additionally, I have not found the quantities of each ingredient listed for Plexus. I am not selling any dietary supplement and am of the opinion that far too many are unregulated here in the U.S. I do wonder about the placebo effect here, which is fine. If it seems to help you, go for it, but use caution. You don’t want to end up with other problems you weren’t counting on because of this product or any other. I just know there is no ONE product that is the cure-all or magic bean for good health on this earth.

      • cynical says:

        On any sensible diet, one can lose weight. The key is to staying on it. In addition, diabetics can diet all they want. Without a controlled blood sugar level, they won’t lose an ounce. Plexus Slim helps control cravings so you can get on that “sensible diet” and stay on it. It also levels out blood sugar levels so diabetics can see weight loss. It is proven in the clinical study. No, there is not cure all or magic bean. Wish there was. Oh wait…beer!!!

      • Kelly says:

        You do not add Plexus to all of the water you drink. I’ve done extensive research on the product myself and I can point out many errors in your “review”. 1st of all Plexus was formulated for diabetics so other than the number of subjects there is no problem with their study. The purpose of Plexus is to restore lipid levels to normal. Weight loss is a happy side effect. People who do not need to lose weight can still take Plexus for overall health benefits. Plexus gives the body what it needs and can even help a person who needs to gain weight. Women who are breastfeeding and/or pregnant can take Plexus with doctors’ approval. Children are able to take Plexus again with doctors’ approval. Next time do some actual research.

        • Carly says:

          the problem with the tiny clinical trial with diabetic subjects is this:
          perhaps plexus does lower bolood sugar, which is actually what probably caused the subjects to lose weight. One cannot take these findings and assume that the same effect would happen to non-diabetics who do not have blood glucose control problems. My thoughts are that plexus may give people more energy, but because they are drinking so much water they are probably feeling fuller and eating less, thus losing weight. But they’re attributing it to the “magical pink drink”. PS I am a Registered Dietitian and I think the 8 subject clinical trial is pitiful.

    • olivia says:

      Can someone please tell me what I can do I take my pink drink and the accelerator and it causes me crash and its not really controlling my hunger?

  2. PlexusThinkPink says:

    Plexus Slim is amazing. I vouch for it 100%. I have tried everything on the market
    t, along with prescribed meds, have seen a dietician, and JC..PLEXUS SLIM works. Finally something with NO bad side effects. All good, energy levels have increased. As to being expensive…It is the cost of a cup of coffee per day.

  3. jamie says:

    i have been taking plexus for 3 months now and have lost over 22 lbs & 17 inches without changing my diet or working out. I absolutely love plexus ! I dont snack on junk food like i use to.. i dont drink pop anymore… im not forcing myself to cut them out, i just dont have a desire to drink pop or eat sweets anymore. i even stopped taking plexus for 2 weeks and i still never gained any weight back.

    • Somebody says:

      Lol, first you said that you lost 22 pounds without changing your diet and then in the next sentences you talked about not snacking as much on junk food and avoiding sodas. Those ARE dietary changes. Just changing those 2 habits along with drinking more water is what made you lose the weight. I know you’re probably an “ambassador” which is why you are posting this crap, but seriously, you should stop wasting your money on garbage and if you are an ambassador, stop ripping people off!

  4. Jeff says:

    My wife has lost 70 lbs on Plexus Slim, and I personally know many others who have lost considerable weight, and also some who have been able to get off medications they had been on for diabetes and other issues. I am a sceptic myself, and I do know that Plexus Slim has not worked for everyone who has tried it, for differing reasons. but for many it works like a dream. and to those reading this make sure you take a look at the very bottom of this webpage and take a close look at their “disclosures”.

  5. Stephanie F says:

    I purchased Plexus Slim, on a whim on recommendation of a co-worker, but changed my mind after they shipped it. It appeared to be too costly to maintain monthly purchases. So when I received the package, I opened the envelope hoping to read reviews and instructions however, the materials included were not clear and concise. So I contacted the company requested that I return it, they confirmed it was ok, but cost of return was on me. fine. IT took 45 days for them to refund my money after resubmitting 3 requests on their end for refund! I had the signed tracking confirmation and 45 days after that I finally received my refund.

  6. Alice says:

    Chromium is known to ease the sugar cravings like people report from Plexus, Fiber will make you feel full and the two can be bought a lot cheaper than Plexus form the local pharmacy. I am not affiliated with any company but am slowly losing wright by eating natural, healthy foods and avoiding refined sugars and fats and exercising every day. How much of the weight loss reported with Plexus is a result of healthier eating and exercise rather than Plexus? I have a friend that is am ambassador and has been pushing Plexus onto all her family and friends. In the same time she has been taking it (and of course she changed her eating plan to healthy foods and is exercising) her and I have both lost 20 pounds. I did mine WITHOUT Plexus. Sounds like a placebo to me.

  7. Chris says:

    I was introduced to the slim by my daughter who wanted advice and my support in relation to performing in direct sales. First and formost is the product you are selling appropriate. eg Does it do what the company claims and is it competative. The only way is to try it. I guess I should disclose that I was borderline diabetic 1, high cholesterol readings, diagnosed with wri tendonitis and bilateral epicondolitis. I was taking medications for those ailments and weighed in at 114 kgs and 183cm. I started finding out about the slim ingredients and accelerator.(The accelerator has been removed by PLEXUS to be relabelled due to redtape and TGA ego’s. It’s okay everwhere else in the world just not here. Go figure.)
    I measured, took photos and weighed. I absolutely refused to diet and exercise to test this “wonder product.” I commenced taking the basic dose and stayed strictly to it, having to get rid of a yeast overgrowth as well (Candida).I took the ProBio 5 and Cleanse for that. 12 weeks later. I lost 18 kilo. 37cm as dropped a ridiculous amount of clothes sizes. XXXL to M in Tshirts, 102cm down to 85cm in jeans/trousers. I also have nearly no tendonitis, epicondolitis has cleared up and I don’t snore. I stopped my medication for 3 weeks and went to have my blood tested cholesterol is now in the threes and sugar glucose is 4.8!!!!!!!!!! The only downside is the cost of a new wardrobe. Believe me, it works.
    Now the price. It’s a 30 day pack and you can get it for $70-80 if you become an ambassador or if not pay $115. Simple, your choice. Similar products in the chemists were dearer and smaller packets like 15 days supply.
    I can understand why a company would be secretive how they make it. The inference the company isnt being transparent to this site reeks of arrogance. You got this one wrong fellas. Did you actually test it. I and I can prove it.

    • Silvi says:

      Hi Chris,
      Happy for your results! If you don’t mind a few questions… In what period of time did you loose the weight? Are you still taking it? Have you try to stop taking Plexus products now since you are in better shape? If so, how do you feel, any change whatsoever? If not, why not? And last, if applicable, what is your medical doctor opinion about your results and him having to take you off the medications he used to prescribe for you? I am not associated with any kind of weight lost products, just researching for my self. Thank you for your time!

  8. Karen says:

    Thank you Chris, good review very non biased. I just bought a 7 day sample to try. I have high Blood Pressure so will not do the accelerator. You can buy a 30 supply on E Bay for 70 without joining. If this helps me to stay on my low carb it is worth it.

    • Bea says:

      Karen, you will not be elligible for a refund with the company if you bought on Ebay so, I hope that your seller honors the 60 Day Guarantee

  9. Bea says:

    This article states that you can “Purchase Plexus Products From The Main Website OR an Ambassador’s Website”—WRONG…If you try to purchase from the main website it asks for “The Ambassador # Of the Ambassador You’ve Been Working With”…If you call them about placing an order, they will give you “Your Nearest Ambassador’s Contact Info”—YOU MUST GO THROUGH AN AMBASSADOR………RESEARCH NEEDS TO BE THOROUGHLY DONE BEFORE CREATING A “REVIEW ARTICLE”

  10. SFVMommy says:

    I am considering becoming an ambassador because I truly believe in this product.. I have a friend who signed up and gave me some product to try for free…. because I wanted to lose weight….and while I HAVE lost weight – and that alone would be enough to convince me – the other. totally unexpected side-effect… I have STOPPED DRINKING DIET COKE!! This for me is even better than the weight loss…. I am 45 years old, and with the exception of when I was pregnant, I have not – since high school – gone a day without Diet Coke. I’ve tried…. and been able to get down to one or two a day – but could never cut it out. I stopped buying Diet Coke by the case bcause – like a true addict – the more I had – the more I drank. If there was a fridge full – I’d easily drink 6-8 a day. So in my attempt to cut back – I stopped keeping it in the house – but stil spend $3 a day a 7-11 buying two bottles. Well now…. I don’t crave it at all. So yes…. Plexus isn’t cheap…. but the $3 a day I used to spend on Diet Coke I now spend on my Plexus…. AND – I’m losing weight and feel great. I truly believe you can’t go wrong and would recommend it to anyone!

    • johnna says:

      I am with u on that I am a soda junkie as well also chocolate and chips and I figure I probably spend way more per month on those than what I spend o. plexus so even tho its expensive its actually saving me mo ey and getting me healthy!

  11. Arlene Martin says:

    I am sick of reading and hearing of all the wonderful benefits of this pink drink. I have always held with the opinion that if a person eats properly, drinks water i (instead of sodas) and exerscises (doesn’t sit on the couch all day) they wouldn’t need something like this. Also…guess what they are making you want to drink more and eat better…it’s a mind control issue. Furthermore there is no one product that can do “everything” from curing acne to curing Lymne disease as has been touted for this product!

    • Jessa says:

      AMEN! People need to get off their butt, put the cupcake down, and make a real lifestyle change. I used no magic pills or pink drinks, and lost 20lbs in 3 months! I made a lifestyle change by eating clean. (still being able to eat what I want, just not all the time, and in the recommended portions!) I also have two children and still found 30 mins to squeeze in exercise. When I look in the mirror I’m proud to say “I did this!”, not some stupid pink drink or diet fad.

    • Jackie says:

      Not everyone has the same metabolisim, central nervous system or mental illiness. Some people don’t enjoy eating and some can’t help themselves and have prolblems with the amount of food they eat. All this cycles from your central nervous system; depression and anxety. If you don’t understand how the body systems can affect appetite.

  12. nicole says:

    Well, it is so incredibly nice to hear that you are one of the lucky ones in your weight control! I, unlike you, struggle keeping my weight down. After years of college basketball and injuries I had to endure back surgery at the rip ole age of 38. This kept me from any physical activities. The weight just piled on. I started Plexus March 2, 2013 weighing 289 pounds, wearing a size 22. Today I weighed 208 pounds and can wear my sisters size 12 jeans! I feel better, I look better, I have been able to stop the blood pressure meds and my Dr is just as excited as I am! I think the WATCHDOG is wrong here and needs an updated review of this product!

    • Andy says:

      You gained weight because you ate more calories than you expended- not because you had back surgery.

    • Kel says:

      Good for you Nicole. Did you also cut calories or increase exercise to lose that amount so quickly? Or stay the same amounts? I have been working out regularly and eating clean. Keeping a food journal and my weight or size is not nudging. Did you take the two a day option to lose quickly? Thanks for expanding on your success. Keep up the great work!!

  13. Matt says:

    How come most of these comments in support for this product sound scripted. People just read them and think about commercials you see on tv. Most people do not talk like that.

    • Michael says:

      Matt, it sounds scripted because it is. These “ambassadors” hold meetings to sign up new lemmings and go over all of the sales pitches and things to say. Just like Lorna below, who touts the “study” of the effects on diabetics. That “study” consisted of only 8 subjects, no control group, and is based on a formula that no longer exists – Plexus reformulated their product due to problems in Canada and Australia. You will find ambassadors who will tell you that this stuff is safe to give to children, which is close to abuse in my opinion. They will claim that it helps with ADD and other behavioral issues. Anything to get you to buy and then to become a sub-ambassador under them. There is one particular ambassador in the McKinney TX area that is as cut-throat as they come. She routinely bullies others who go against Plexus, even going so far as to use her religion to demean others on Facebook and other social media. This lady gives the marching orders and the lemmings snap to and fill up Facebook with ads and testimonials. This is about people bilking others for money, not a healthy lifestyle.

  14. Lorna says:

    Hi everyone, I would like to add a few pointers for those who have tried or not tried and for those who do not wish to try. Plexus World Wide was formulated for Diabetics and in their studies they found not only did clients bloody sugars reduce but they also lost the weight. The weight was not the factor here. It’s the blood sugar levels that are reduce which in turn takes off the weight loss. As many Doctors will tell you or not that is one of the top level issues with Diabetes. There are other factors such as Candadia. Which doctors do not like to talk about. If you consider that when you take any antibiotic it takes away your good yeast in the system and then you become in balanced. People are not aware of these issues of symptoms. I must state I am not doctor nor have I studied as a doctor. If you only researched the full ingredients and what they do. Or if you studied Candada and good and bad yeast and why your body is unbalanced you will then come to understand the why’s behind Plexus Slim. There are hundreds of testimonials to date all over the place of people with MS (Multiple Sclerosis), Fibromyalgia, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Chron’s disease and chronic pain syndrome. There are so many more people out there with so many issues. THIS PRODUCT DOES NOT CLAIM TO CURE ANY DECEASE IN ANYWAY. It is there for a health plan and once the craving cease then all the other issues start to balance out. I for one do not have any of the above. However, I have seen and spoken to so many that have and they are thrilled with their results. I have now become an ambassador for Plexus Slim in the UK. I do not see why this product is under scrutiny. There are so many other SO CALLED DIETS, that have been around and claimed this and that. They are all to be added to milk and are full of sugars. Once you come off them you put the weight back on. and if not more than before. If you wish to know more on all the products we have or have concerns then please do not hesitate to contact me direct. Thank you for reading :)

    • Carly says:

      Your huge paragraph is so full of bad grammar, misspellings, run on sentences and fragments that I couldn’t stand to read all the way through it.

  15. Kim says:

    I am a Plexus Ambassador and I have been doing it for about two months now. I thoroughly enjoy promoting this product line and believe in it wholeheartedly!! I am proof to myself and to my customers, that it works!! It keeps stating that it’s expensive. If you divide the price by 30-days, you’ll see that your only paying $4.07/day for an all over better and healthier lifestyle, the weightless is just an added bonus!! Plexus is NOT just a weightloss program, it’s main goal is health and wellness. Also, you didn’t gain the excess weight overnight so your not gonna lose it that fast either. Plexus works from the inside out to help assist your body in flushing unwanted pollutants and toxins… Resulting in the shredding of fat and inches, not muscle. =)

    • marissa says:

      I just got my plexus 2 days ago, I will come back and comment in 2 weeks to let everyone know how im doing. I was a huge skeptic at first, I normally wouldn’t try anything like this and never have. So we will see….

  16. Mike says:

    I am signing up as an ambassador. I like the product and the way I feel. If I lose weight, great. If not, it is still good for blood sugar and cholesterol. I like MLMs. They are a proven way to get things to people. I reject the notion that it is expensive. If you give up one unhealthy thing you do every day (soda, cigarettes, burgers, fries, fried food of any kind, candy) you can afford it. I reject the lemmings comments as well. Those that go to work every day and work for someone else and allow their jobs to control their lives are the lemmings, not those who are trying home based businesses or entrepreneurial projects. I think it is worth a shot but I am going into this with eyes wide open.

      More power to you, Mike. Ingest all of that stuff that is supposedly “all natural” and let your liver work triple time. This stuff is marketed to lemmings in that it makes promises of high earnings and other pipe dreams. If MLM is such a great concept, why wouldn’t every company around be selling their products that way? Here’s a hint – because they want to make money for a long time, not just some stint before the first big lawsuit comes and wipes the company out. People need to realize that health doesn’t come in a pill or powder format. Altering your metabolism via unregulated products is for the desperate and uneducated.

    I lost my daughter to Plexus. She became an ambassador and wanted me to sign up under her. I can’t afford the money to buy these products. I told her that I hoped that she did well, but I can’t do this. I also told her I don’t know enough about it to spend that kind of money. I was ill several weeks later with the stomach flu. She text me and said I hear that your ill, (never asked how I was doing) there is a Plexus seminar on the internet for 8 hours today and I thought since you were ill you could watch it and find out more about it. I text (she won’t talk on the phone) I’m so sick and I really don’t want to hear about this company, please stop telling me about it, I don’t want to hear. I hope you do well but it’s not for me. She text me back saying that she is only placing positive people around her while she is trying to build her business and that she wanted me out of her life. She has refused to talk with me and won’t let me see or speak to my grandchildren. If Plexus is teaching to only talk to those that are positive and the cut out all that is negative I want nothing to do with them. I am so upset that my daughter and her family won’t have anything to do with me over this. It has split our family.

      Diane: That’s really terrible. I hope she has a change of heart. We have some friends who were always falling for those MLM, get-rich quick schemes and trying to get us involved. We tagged along with them to a real estate seminar once (how to get rich buying and selling it) and while my husband and I could see that the only way the people giving the seminar were making money was by getting people to pay for their seminar, this couple spent a couple of thousand dollars signing up for more of their seminars. One time when they invited us over to their house for a “party” we got there only to find out that it was another MLM presentation. We told them flat out that we did not appreciate being invited over and then being ambushed with an MLM scheme because we were not interested. They apologized and after many failed attempts at multiple MLM schemes, they finally realized that there was no MLM scheme that worked. We live in different states now, but are still friends with them. They finally came to their senses about the MLM nonsense, so maybe your daughter will do the same. Keeping you from seeing your grandchildren is just wrong. I don’t understand that at all. She’s only hurting you and her children. Since she won’t listen to you, the only other suggestion I could make is if there is someone that you know she will listen to that you know well enough to talk to about this situation (and is on your side), perhaps you can talk with them about your concerns and have them talk to her without letting on that the two of you have spoken. Maybe another family member or close friend? Blessings to you.

      Is she a Liberal? I’ve noticed that kind of behavior seems to be the new way of thinking. It may not be the business at all. Loyalty to parents, anyone who was unconditionally respected before can be tossed aside with this new mentality. Not good….actually very hurtful.

      • Michael says:

        Lisa, I would be inclined to say that political leanings aren’t necessarily what is driving this situation. What is driving it is the lure of Multi-Level Marketing that Plexus uses. This young girl has bought into the pitch of Plexus, hook, line and sinker. I have watched an ambassador here in McKinney TX use everything under the sun to coerce her underlings to jump on the bandwagon. Anything from touting how she won a car from the company, the fact that she makes so much money that she can pay cash for her kids’ dental work, numerous free trips, and the lowest of the low – using Christianity and Biblical scripture to promote the product as well as intimidate those who don’t buy into it. That is a tremendous amount of pressure on someone who may be desperate for a few extra dollars in their pocket. People who may normally be smart and grounded will turn in a heartbeat and accept lies and deceit from those they see with the good life. You are right. It is hurtful to see this phenomenon. These folks will give this stuff to their children without so much as a pause to think about future ramifications on their health. Its all about the here and now to these people.

    • Shari W. says:

      Dear Diane, I know how you feel. I know someone who is trying to push this product on me and many of their friends and family and even their doctors. These people are always strapped for money, in fact, they never work and just literally mooch off of other people and continually look for get rich quick schemes to avoid working. They do have health problems and say this stuff is helping them and just want others to feel the same way-apparently good-because they know we also have health problems. We checked it out and told them it is a pyramid operation. They acted like they did not even know what that was. Then we told them it has poisonous ingredients that are not declared on Plexus packaging and we were concerned about it because a small amount of poison can sometimes be camouflaged by the good vitamins and minerals that may appear to be counteracting them. There is internet information from foreign governments that bans Plexus products from being sold there. We told them this. Our friends came up with all sorts of excuses about how they already knew about the poisonous ingredients in the products (but conveniently that must have slipped t heir minds to tell us). We were also very suspicious about how wonderfully Christian all these support groups for Plexus seem to be, and how they tout that God has brought them all together (in this pyramid operation) and how much money they all make, and of course how much more money they will make if you join them as an ambassador under them. We are a Christian family and have known these people for years. When this Plexus thing came about, we found it suspicious as is all the get rich quick things these people do. We are not feeling sorry for them anymore as we did in the past. We used to listen to all the sob stories of how broke they are and sick they are and can’t work yet continue to live excessively at the expense of others who donate and give to them, this includes us and what we have done for them. We prayed to the Lord for an answer if we were being scammed by them and the Lord gave us direct Bible readings that they were scamming us and trying to just make money off of us, and to us, they had no care in the world that this stuff contains poison but they would try to make us buy it anyway just to make a quick buck. Do not fall for it. This is probably the full end of our relationship with these people. Pray to the Good Lord that he will guide you on your decisions and turn the hearts of these family and friends taken in by the lure of money. Be blessed.

    The fact that you can’t buy the product except through an ambassador makes it sound like a scam. Multilevel marketers are maybe one level above ambulance chasers. Take the $80 per month and spend it on fruit and vegetables. THAT is what helps you lose weight. A friend of mine keeps pushing this via Facebook. I won’t be rude to her about it but there’s no way I’d fall for this concoction.

  19. Lori says:

    Take the $80 to $100 that Plexus costs per month and use that money to buy healthy food, a workout DVD, a gym membership, a jump rope, etc. There are no magic pills or potions. It is simple math: expend more calories than you take in each day. Aka: eat less, move more!

    • just me says:

      Lori your wrong about that just cause a person eats healthy doesn’t not mean they will loss weight. I was told I had Graves about 3-4 years ago which is a thyroid issue. NOTHING I did keep me from putting on weight dieting as in eating as healthy as I could cutting calories going to gym, walking you name it I did it. This product has helped me loss 5 pounds so far and I feel ten times better then I have in years… If you don’t have a issue with your weight that you can’t seem to get off after trying everything and I mean everything. You have no right to tell people it doesn’t work.

      • Michael says:

        Losing 5 pounds does not equate to it “working” nor does it mean you are suddenly healthier. That 5 pounds people crow about is normally water weight being lost or even worse, if you’re on the Bio-Cleanse, your weight loss is via laxatives. Not a good way to be healthy. I’ve heard all this “energy” talk about this product and that’s a given when you introduce new stimulants into your bloodstream. Nothing in Plexus is a medical solution for thyroid issues, so please don’t tout it as solving the problems that exist with that condition.

        • Jackie says:

          How do you know?

          • Michael says:

            How do I know, Jackie? I’ve been researching the ingredients in this garbage and looking at sensible information that tells what these products are for. Most of the ingredients have been studied and no studies exist showing Plexus or any of its ingredients to do what they claim (other than pro-Plexus propaganda from Ambassadors). You need to understand that their is very little (if any) regulation in the diet & supplement industry. Just because someone at a Plexus meeting tells you that it is the latest and greatest does not make it so. Example – the Bio-Cleanse product. Look at the main ingredient in the product – magnesium. Same stuff that you find in Milk of Magnesium, which is a laxative. Another – there is a pdf file online that lists all the ingredients in Plexus products and “what they do”. Most people will jump right into the meat of the article but take the time to look and see who put it together – a pilates instructor and Plexus Ambassador. Next time you need a medical procedure done, go find a yoga instructor to handle it, right. Makes a lot of sense, huh?

        • James K. says:

          You are correct. In fact, most people who are sick lose weight. If you have flu or even cancer, you lose weight most times. This product is carrying its reputation on the fact that it induces weight loss. This does not mean it is doing anything good for your body. The good ingredients that may be contained in the product could be there merely to balance or mask the bad side effects caused by the poisonous ingredients that they are failing to declare on their labels.

  20. James K. says:

    This is a classic pyramid scheme. That is exactly what “multi-level marketing” means! This company has been called out for mislabeling their products and not declaring their full contents. The Australian government designed their own website banning these Plexus products from Australia due to the poisonous ingredients which are known to cause brain bleed (aneurysm), psychiatric disorders, stroke, heart malfunction, etc. The very name “Plexus” is a reference to the ventricles in the human brain which produce the body’s supply of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in order to sustain life. If the products are known to produce stroke and brain bleed, this is a direct correlation and reference to the human brain and what it does. STAY AWAY FROM THIS PRODUCT!
