We take an in depth look at Plexus BioCleanse to find out more.
In addition although we like citrus bioflavanoids, the amounts contained in this supplement are too miniscule to work.
The ingredients look reasonably safe but Magnesium hydroxide can interact with some prescription drugs and cause diarrhoea.
The Bioflavonoid Complex is in too inadequate an amount to be effective.
You don’t need to “cleanse” your digestive system with a product and if you suffer from digestive issues try eating more fiber and drinking more fluids. If that does not work, see your doctor.
Plexus BioCleanse Review
Plexus BioCleanse is marketed as a digestive health supplement that will help you if you lead a busy lifestyle without exercise and fiber in your diet. The idea is that this supplement provides a source of magnesium to help you manage when your digestive system is out of balance. We are assuming that this means it will help you open your bowels if you are constipated.
According to the product information Plexus BioCleanse will help clean the gastro intestinal tract and energize your body.
How to Take Plexus BioCleanse
Take 2 capsules with 8oz of water, twice daily between meals.
Plexus BioCleanse comes from well-known multi level marketing (MLM) company Plexus Worldwide and is just one in a wide range of products associated with weight loss.
Plexus BioCleanse Concerns:
- Looks like a waste of money
- Is Plexus veering dangerously close to Pyramid selling? Only Plexus Ambassadors appear to use the products
- This supplement is not going to work as described
MLM is a method of selling whereby ordinary people can set up in business themselves, selling the products and recruiting their own sales forces and benefitting from a structured incentive scheme. People selling Plexus are called ambassadors.
We have covered MLM and its darker side of Pyramid selling in a previous investigation.
What Does Plexus BioCleanse Claim To Do?
According to the product advertising, the key features of Plexus BioCleanse are that it will;
- Help cleanse the gastro-intestinal tract
- Help energize the body
- Vitamin C provides antioxidant support
- Relieves occasional constipation (that is not associated with chronic constipation, which may be a symptom of a serious disease)
We would have liked to have seen some explanation about these claims and some clinical proof.
Does Plexus BioCleanse Work?
This supplement looks like a waste of time and money.
If you suffer from digestive issues, you should consult your doctor rather than buy an OTC supplement. Drinking more liquids and changing your diet to include more fiber may help too.
The advertising claims it will cleanse the gastro intestinal tract but that is complete nonsense. Your system does not need cleansing because it is not dirty. The body does not work like that.
In addition, the health boosting effects of bioflavanoids are in too insufficient quantities to work and if you wanted to try sodium bicarbonate for its many health benefits, it costs cents from any store and is exactly the same stuff as contained in this supplement.
What Are The Ingredients of Plexus BioCleanse?
Although the name Bio Cleanse makes it sound like a detox product, this supplement looks pretty safe for most people.
Each serving is equal to 2 capsules.
- Vitamin C (as ascorbic acid) (150mg): Vitamin C is a vitamin that the body needs but is only obtainable by diet. It is present in fruit and vegetables but can also be made cheaply in the lab as ascorbic acid. Vitamin C helps protect the body against disease and has numerous health benefits.
- Magnesium Hydroxide (380mg): Often taken as a cure for occasional constipation, magnesium hydroxide can also help digestion by reducing stomach acid.
- Sodium (as sodium bicarbonate) (50mg): Soluble alkaline salt with numerous medical uses including as a cure for indigestion and stomach acid. Some people take it as a method of replacing salts following exercise. Believed to help the body become more alkaline.
- Bioflavonoid Complex (orange peel, lemon peel quince (whole fruit)) (50mg): Citrus based formula high in plant compounds called bioflavanoids which in turn are high in antioxidants. Bioflavanoids can help circulation and the immune system but here in very low quantities. Some people recommend taking as much as 6000mg of flavanoids a day.
Does Plexus BioCleanse Have Any Side Effects?
The ingredients look reasonably safe but Magnesium hydroxide can interact with some prescription drugs and cause diarrhea.
The Bioflavonoid Complex is in too inadequate an amount to be effective.
Not suitable for individuals under 18. Avoid if pregnant or breast feeding. Speak to your doctor before taking especially if you are using prescription drugs due to risk of interactions.
Are There Any Customer Reviews For Plexus BioCleanse?
There are a lot of customer complaints. Many people have found that it does very little.
I noticed nothing different
I tried 2 bottles and noticed no benefits. Very expensive for no benefit…
are just two typical comments.
One user urged caution,
My friend/ ambassador sold me this product. I was willing to try anything to cure my ongoing “gut” issues. I do not need a weight loss regimen but have has yeast / bacterial gut issues for years. According to them, this is a cure all for chronic gut problems. The only thing this product did was give me explosive diarrhea and flu like symptoms until I ceased its use. Maybe it is just me, but I would caution anyone trying a cleansing product without the advice of a MD.
Unsurprisingly the Plexus ambassadors have added their opinions and claimed all sorts of benefits for the supplement.
This woman actually thanks God for Plexus as she writes,
Awesome product. No more leg cramps, and things move smoothly now, but this isn’t a cleanse like you think of when hearing about a cleanse. it is GENTLE. I had an abdominal surgery and had bathroom issues for the past several years since, until this product. I have been using it now for 3 months, thankful that God had a friend in my life that introduced me to this line.
