Plexus are a multi-level marketing company that are most well-known for Plexus Slim, also known as the “Pink Drink”. Plexus Block is their carb-blocking supplement. It claims to stop almost half of the carbs that you eat from being absorbed by your body. There doesn’t seem to be any evidence at all for this figure though. Any results will surely be far more minimal than this. There is some good feedback, but most of this may well be from the distributors themselves – it often is with MLM companies.
This sounds great for helping you lose weight, but is this supplement as good as it sounds?
Plexus Block like all the other Plexus supplements is expensive. Yes, you can buy in wholesale or through an ambassador but is this supplement really worth the bother of doing this? There are plenty of carb blockers on the market that will probably work just as well as this one and at a much cheaper price.
Alternatively, you could make some dietary changes and include more beans in your diet for the same effect.

Plexus Block should be safe for most people but potential side effects may include stomach discomfort, gas, nausea, sickness, and bloating.
If you buy from the Plexus website as a retail customer, one bottle of 60 capsules (1 month’s supply) costs $39.95.
Plexus Block is a carb blocker, which means that it is supposed to block some of the carbs that you eat from being absorbed by your body. Instead, they are just passed through your system in the usual way and not added to fat.
The supplement contains white kidney bean extract and brown seaweed extract as the carb blocking ingredients and there is trace mineral chromium believed to help manage glucose levels.
Take 2 capsules before a meal, which contains sugars or carbohydrates.
Plexus Block is just one in a wide product range from Plexus Worldwide, a well-known American Multi Level Marketing company. This means that if you like the products you can sell them yourself as a Plexus Ambassador. Some people claim they have quit their jobs in order to sell Plexus products full time.
According to the product advertising, Plexus Block:
White Kidney Bean extract is rich in fibre and can cause feelings of fullness and it seems to block the absorption of carbs although strength of the effect is unknown.
The other two ingredients – brown seaweed extract and chromium are supposed to reduce starch absorption and regulate blood sugar levels.
The problem with any kind of carb blocker is that many of feel that it gives us a license to over eat in the belief that the carbs and sugars will not add to our weight. If you believe that 48% of your dietary intake doesn’t matter, you could easily put on weight while you are using this supplement.
In addition, Plexus have manipulated figures because there is no evidence anywhere which says that 48% of the carbs that you eat will pass through your body as waste.
This supplement may block some carbs and sugars but the size of the effect may be very small. You may not even notice it. Source: https://examine.com/supplements/white-kidney-bean-extract

Plexus Block should be safe for most people but potential side effects may include:
Not suitable for individuals under 18. Avoid if you are pregnant or breast feeding. Speak to your doctor first if you have any underlying medical condition or are taking prescription medication. This supplement may interact with the way that your medicines work. This applies especially to people with diabetes.
One of the problems with of reviewing supplements sold via Network Marketing, is that the Ambassadors are always quick to praise and advertise the products they are hoping to sell.
As this customer complained
… The other reviewers who all seem to be ambassadors who are only promoting themselves and not the product itself.
Reviews are supposed to be for honest, unbiased reviews of a product, not for advertising purposes. I would have loved to have seen reviews from someone not affiliated with Plexus on this product…
We agree wholeheartedly with this comment.
Here’s what one Plexus Ambassador wrote,
All Plexus products are amazing. Yes, I’m an ambassador with Plexus Worldwide and a Plexus user! I’m NOT trying to make a sale, but rather spread the word about these life changing products!
Block is great to have on hand through the holidays and for treat meals. I take two capsules before a large meal and it helps me to not feel bloated and keep the weight off. I love it. I now save 40% by buying wholesale.

Still taking, haven’t noticed anything with this product yet.
Buy from the Plexus website or an Ambassador; you will be covered by a 60-day guarantee.
If you buy from the website, contact Customer Care on 1-480-998-3490 within 60 days of purchase to obtain a Return Merchandise Authorization number (RMA).
If you buy via an Ambassador be aware that he or she will probably try to talk you into buying more products. However, you are covered by the guarantee so stand your ground if you want a refund.
Buy from the Plexus website as a retail customer and 1 x bottle of 60 capsules (1 month’s supply) costs $39.95.
Alternatively sign up as a preferred customer (auto ship) and take the Monthly Evo Preferred Customer Package where you are sent fresh supplies each month. A small price reduction makes the monthly supply of 60 capsules $34.95. Autoship can be hard to cancel so we advise you to avoid this option. You can also buy from one of the many Ambassadors selling this supplement.
It is available via Amazon USA too. 1 x bottle of 60 capsules costs $31.00.
When it comes to results – the name is misleading. Plexus Block will not block the absorption of anywhere near 48% of carbs and sugars as implied by the advertising.
In fact there is not a supplement in the world that will block almost 50% of what you eat and if you believe this it is likely you will put on weight, not lose it.
We are not impressed with Plexus Block so have no other option but to reject it.
