Protein shakes can help weight loss if you use them correctly but not everyone finds this method of weight loss easy. We take a look at Plexus 96 to find out more.
In addition, as with all Protein Shakes, there is something just extremely unhealthy with replacing a healthy meal with a chocolate drink. It does nothing to establish healthy eating habits.
As a Shake it is not too bad. It has a good vitamin and mineral profile but we can see nothing here to justify the high price. Therefore we do not recommend Plexus 96.
Plexus 96 Review
Plexus 96 is a chocolate or vanilla flavour protein powder that you add to water (or milk) in order to make a satisfying drink you can use as a meal replacement when you are on the go.
It contains 15g of protein per serving plus a wide range of vitamins and minerals so should provide a nutritious meal replacement.
Plexus 96 contains 100 calories per serving, more if you add to milk, so if you are looking to lose weight it is important to use it to replace a meal, rather than drink in combination with a meal. Some people find they put on weight using protein shakes if they forget to do this.
How to Take Plexus 96
Shake or blend 1 packet with 8 oz. of ice-cold water. Milk may be substituted for water, but will provide additional calories. Blend with 2 ice cubes for additional thickness.
Plexus 96 is a weight loss supplement from US network marketing (Multi Level Marketing) company Plexus Worldwide. You can sign up as an Ambassador and sell Plexus products yourself and benefit from a structured incentive scheme.
Plexus 96 Concerns:
- The only people who seem to be talking about Plexus are the people trying to sell it – has this company crossed a line and moved into pyramid selling?
- There seems to be nothing in this supplement to justify the high price – could lead people into wasting their money
- If you do not substitute a meal for a shake you could find yourself putting on weight, not losing weight
Some people enjoy being involved with MLM but it is not the road to riches that is sometimes claimed.

What Does Plexus 96 Claim To Do?
There are eight key features to this supplement.
- Helps control hunger and helps curbs cravings
- Perfect 100 calorie energizer – feel full so you snack less
- Helps build lean muscle with 15 grams of high-quality whey protein isolate and concentrate
- Provides sustained energy
- Helps maintain blood sugar levels already in the normal range
- Contains more than 20 vitamins and minerals for optimal nutrition

Although these all sound good, there is no real evidence that the supplement will work in the way as described.
Does Plexus 96 Work?
It might work for you. If you use this supplement to replace a meal, you may lose weight if you do it often enough. After all, this supplement contains only 100 calories so as a replacement to a meal it is very low calorie alternative.
However, if you drink Plexus 96 and then eat as normal, you may even put weight on. After all not everyone considers a chocolate or vanilla drink as a real replacement to a regular meal.

Are There Any Customer Reviews For Plexus 96?
Plexus 96 does not appear to be one of Plexus more popular supplements and apart from the Plexus ambassadors who love all Plexus products, opinion seems to be lukewarm!
First up one Plexus Ambassador wrote,
I drink a Plexus 96 shake every afternoon and it gets me through the day without fatigue or brain fog or ever feeling hungry. In addition, it tastes great just mixed with a bottle of water. I’ve been doing this for six months and so far I’ve lost 34 pounds and feel better than I have in at least 10 years. I save over 40% by buying it wholesale online.
Many other Plexus Ambassadors say similar.
Real customers are not so easy to find. This lady wrote,
I tried the chocolate one first. I mixed it with milk instead of water, hoping for a richer, creamier shake. The first taste of this stuff was just awful but after that, it was okay. Don’t think I will be buying anymore of it.
Another customer was happy.
Perfect! Exactly what I ordered!
