Plexus Slim

Plexus Slim is a weight loss/health drink that you can use on its own or in combination with other Plexus products. The idea is that it will make losing weight easier and get you healthier as well. Called the Pink Drink, Plexus Slim seems popular but is this a false impression created by people trying to sell this supplement?

We take a look at Plexus Slim to find out more.

What You Need To Know About Plexus Slim

Plexus Slim comes with lots of hype from the ambassadors, but there is nothing special about this drink. It is pink because it contains beetroot coloring, and it contains some ingredients which may prove to be useful for weight loss, but lacks any real evidence right now.

Like anything, it may have a slight effect if you combine it with diet and exercise, but it certainly contains nothing to justify the $80 price tag.

For more information on Plexus and their other products, take a look at our investigation into the company here.

What Are The Side Effects Of Plexus Slim?

The ingredients profile looks safe for most people, but you should discontinue use if you experience adverse effects.

How Much Does Plexus Slim Cost?

If you buy Plexus Slim as a retail customer it costs $84.95 for 30 sachets.

Our Verdict On Plexus Slim

Some of the claims made by the people selling the Pink Drink are laughable. We have seen it touted for just about every illness and ailment you can think of, and it is hard to believe that people really are that gullible.

Don’t fall for it, save your money and avoid this supplement. Overall, we do not recommend Plexus Slim to our readers.

Plexus Slim Review

Plexus Slim is a weight loss drink, that according to the advertising will help you experience the results you have been dreaming of!

The many ambassadors selling it often give it almost miraculous properties, touting it as a cure for just about everything from weight gain to eczema, fatigue, and probably even cancer.

Plexus Slim Facts

  • Plexus Slim is also known as the Pink Drink
  • The company behind this supplement is Plexus Worldwide, a well known MLM company
  • You are encouraged to commit to auto shipping or become a Plexus Ambassador when you buy

The drink comes in a berry flavor – attractively colored pink, and it contains 200mcg of chromium per serving, plus a proprietary formula called the Plexus Slim Blend as the active ingredients.

How to Take Plexus Slim

Open sachet and pour into a bottle to mix. Drink 15 -30 minutes before a meal, once or twice a day.

Plexus Slim is the flagship product from MLM company Plexus Worldwide, and part of the weight loss range of supplements.

The supplements are sold by “ambassadors” people who are looking to make a second income (or get rich) selling the products. Anyone can do this – the opportunities are out there for all but this method of business does not suit everyone.

Plexus Slim Concerns:

  • People make some wild claims about how this supplement works – will people be tricked into buying because of this?
  • This supplement is extremely expensive at $80
  • Many people consider this supplement a waste of money

Other supplements in the range include Plexus Boost, Plexus Block, and Plexus Accelerator + often taken in combination with Plexus Slim. You can also find protein powders, detox supplements and more.

What Does Plexus Slim Claim To Do?

You drink Plexus Slim before a meal, and the idea is that it will generally make you feel healthy. Some of the ingredients may help regulate blood sugar levels.

Here’s what is says on the label;

  • Lose weight and inches by burning fat not muscle
  • Helps keep blood sugar, cholesterol, and lipids at healthy levels
  • Helps increase your will power over food
  • Reduces binge eating

Does Plexus Slim Work?

Plexus Slim may have a slight weight loss effect. Green coffee bean extract and Garcinia Cambogia lack quality clinical testing, but that is not to say that these ingredients are ineffective. You may find this supplement helps you lose some weight, especially if you combine it with a diet and exercise plan.

However, results are unlikely to be earth shattering and the Pink Drink is not going to cure you if you are sick.

It is just a drink with some pink coloring. There is nothing special about it.

What Are The Ingredients of Plexus Slim?

The ingredients in the Pink Drink look pretty safe.

Each sachet serving contains;

  • Chromium (200mcg): Trace element that may help regulate blood sugar levels.

The Plexus Slim Blend (530mg):

  • Green Coffee Bean Extract (chlorogenic acid and less than 2% caffeine): Unroasted coffee contains chlorogenic acid, which may help prevent glucose from entering the blood stream and so help weight loss. However there has been very little good quality clinical testing, and scientific opinion is that the weight loss effect seems to be very small. Source
  • Garcinia Cambogia: Another popular ingredient, Garcinia contains Hydroxycitric Acid which is supposed to block fat from being absorbed by the body, and increase serotonin levels so reduce food cravings. These weight loss effects have been mainly noted in animal testing, and evidence for humans is not as conclusive. Expert opinion is that Garcinia Cambogia needs more human testing before the claims can be proved one way or another.
  • Alpha Lipoic Acid: Antioxidant found in the body. When taken as a supplement may help lower blood sugar levels and remove free radical cells. Source

Other ingredients include low calorie natural sweeteners Stevia, Luo Hang Go fruit extract, and polydextrose. It also contains grape skin extract in unknown quantities, and beet extract which makes the appealing berry color.

Does Plexus Slim Have Any Side Effects?

The ingredients profile looks safe for most people, but you should discontinue use if you experience adverse effects.

Not suitable for individuals under 18. Avoid if you are breast feeding or pregnant. Speak to your doctor first if you are taking prescription medication.

Are There Any Customer Reviews For Plexus Slim?

The Pink Drink looks very popular because there is a lot of talk about it on Facebook, but it is important to remember that there are a lot of people working as Plexus ambassadors who are trying to sell it.

One feature of working in MLM (multi level marketing) is that people often become fixated with sales and the supposed benefits of the product.

Here is a typical example posted on a Facebook account called Drink the Pink;

It reads,

My friend suffers from a chronic illness…She started using Plexus 3 months ago…She used to have flare ups that would cause incredible pain, swelling and bruising all over her body…so much she couldn’t be the wife and mommy she wanted to be.
Fast forward 3 months, she is feeling energized and her family has gotten their mommy/ wife back.
Plexus can do amazing things for you too. Let me change your quality of life!

We do not believe this. Plexus Slim is not a magic potion regardless of what the people selling it claim.

By contrast, there is a string of complaints left by people who have been talked into buying and taking this by so called friends who have become Plexus Ambassadors. Many people have mentioned weight gain following using, as this customer reported,

Somebody got me to sign up as an Ambassador… I figured it was worth a shot.
I’ve been on it for 30 days and I am up 6 pounds…I haven’t lost an inch….

Does Plexus Slim Offer a Money-Back Guarantee?

There is a 60 Day money back guarantee. You will need to talk to your ambassador (the person who sold you the supplement) in order to claim it. Be prepared for some persuasive sales talk. If a customer complains that the supplement is ineffective, the usual ploy is to sell him or her additional products.

If you buy direct from the product website you have 60 days to contact Plexus for a return authorization code.

Some people have complained that the company is hard to contact by phone, and seem reluctant to answer complaints via email.

Where Can I Buy Plexus Slim?

If you buy Plexus Slim as a retail customer it costs $84.95 for 30 sachets (30 drinks and a month’s supply).

Join as a preferred customer (auto ship) and take Monthly Evo Preferred Customer Package where you are sent fresh supplies each month. You get a slight price reduction making the monthly supply of 30 sachets $79.95.

You can also buy via Amazon for the same price.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Plexus Slim?

As our previous review outlines, Plexus Slim is a dietary supplement produced by Plexus Worldwide Inc. based in Arizona.

It appears that Plexus supplements are sold primarily by distributors (or ambassadors) who are referred and signed up to the programme by other sellers. Such a recruitment system operates as a multi-level marketing scheme (or you can find out more about this in our MLM investigation).

The supplement contains sachets that are mixed with water to produce a drink, often referred to as the “pink drink”. From the information available on the official website, the supplement contains a mixture of fiber, amino acids and ingredients found in a number of dietary supplements ( chromium etc). This combination of ingredients is claimed to help you lose weight without loss in muscle tone.

Along with weight loss, Plexus slim claims to keep blood sugar, cholesterol and lipids at healthy levels.

Plexus Slim New Formula

Since writing our original review the formula has slightly changed.

The following ingredients appear to have been removed:

Citrin K (old name for Garcinia cambogia), Oxypregnane steroidal glycoside, Chromium and Grape skin extract.

Three new ingredients appear to have been added:

Chromium Nicotinate 200 mcg (167%), Garcinia cambogia (popular at the moment) and Hoodia gordonii (why?).

How do I take Plexus Slim?

The advice is to take one sachet per day with water around 15 to 30 minutes before a meal. For dieters looking to lose a lot of weight are recommended to take two per day.

Price Alert: Remember if you decide to take two sachets per day then your “2 month supply” of Plexus Slim will only last you 30 days!

So is Plexus Slim clinically proven?

There don’t appear to be any clinical studies undertaken on any of the Plexus Slim supplements. However, according to the official site, there are clinically proven ingredients in this supplement.

We were unable to locate any further information though to support these claims. With no ingredient amounts listed its impossible to determine if enough is present.

Is Plexus Slim safe?

In 2013 questions have been raised about the safety of some of the Plexus Slim supplements, in particular, the Plexus Slim Accelerator capsules and Plexus Slim Accelerator 3 Day Trial pack.

The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) in Australia tested the above products and found the undeclared banned chemical 1,3-dimethylamylamine (DMAA).


Consumer Warning: Warning issued by The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) in Australia in July 2013 issued concerning banned ingredient DMAA present in some Plexus Slim product.

What do customers say about Plexus Slim?

Focusing on consumers who don’t promote Plexus Slim feedback is very mixed.

Amazon feedback shows a slightly above average rating of 3.6 out of 5 for their Plexus Slim 30 days supply at the time or writing this review. Interestingly some of the 5-star reviews have commented no weight loss shown on the scales but “feel” slimmer!

What if I am unhappy, any money-back guarantee?

There is a 60-day money-back guarantee on offer according to the manufacturer’s website. If purchased through an ambassador (which is likely) then you will need to contact them in order to get your refund.

Can I buy Plexus Slim on Amazon or eBay?

You can buy these supplements from both Amazon and eBay with prices slightly less on eBay, as you would expect. Plexus Slim 30 day supply ranges from $86 to $130, both seem a little pricey to us.

Amazon listings appear to be from the manufacturer whereas Ebay shows listings from are likely to be Ambassadors.

Caution: Ensure you are buying the real McCoy when purchasing any supplements from eBay. If in doubt then check customer feedback and if you believe the product is fake contact eBay.

Where can I buy Plexus Slim?

The official website is more of a company brochure site and doesn’t list and product prices.

So if you prefer to buy Plexus Slim direct from the manufacturer instead of Amazon or Ebay, then you will need an Ambassador ID first or will have to call Plexus Worldwide instead.

201 comments on 'Plexus Slim'

  1. This is nothing but a sales add for another product line so of course it’s going to bash plexus, and probably other supplement companies on different websites. I’ve been on plexus for 7 months and I had a thyroid issue and terrible gut problems (IBS). Since starting plexus I’m actually able to lose weight (down almost 20lbs) I have all day energy, no more energy drinks and coffee and I don’t crave chocolate anymore which I ate a chocolate bar almost daily along with my energy drink just to get me through work. On top of that I can eat anything I want now and not suffer. Going to a restaurant before sucked cause I knew I’d end up in the bathroom as soon as I finished my meal. Plexus has helped my guts heal and Im not afraid to eat those foods I couldn’t before. So for anyone that believes this cap and says plexus doesn’t work, I promise you it does. So much so I decided to become an ambassador so I can help other people using an all natural product. I tried many other supplements, nothing helped my conditons like plexus has, and I sleep better!

    1. Poor “Plexus”. Sent here by an upline to shill for the company. These kinds of posts are not going to make you any more money, nor do they prove that Plexus “works”. You’re an ambassador, coached by uplines as to what to say, which is a very tired and fictitious way of doing things.

      Let me also warn you, such posts are a violation of your ambassador contract. You may not make claims other than what Plexus spoon feeds you. So, the claim about this stuff curing your thyroid issues and IBS can land you in hot water with the company and it is illegal to make such claims. Nothing contained in Plexus has ever been proven to cure anything, nor has it been subjected to a 3rd party research. It’s snake oil and I pity those who fall for the sales pitch. All you are doing at this point is helping send your upline to fancy conventions while you spend more and more money on this poison.

  2. Save yourself time and a boatload of money – don’t sign up to sell Plexus. The only way you’ll make money is if you talk your friends and family into signing up to be an ambassador (aka: throwing their money away). This is basically a legal pyramid scheme and the chances of you making enough money to actually support your lifestyle are slim to none.

    There’s a reason why these types of products are not sold in stores and can only be bought from your friend who is desperately trying to sell off their plexus inventory (remember – your friend or family member is the one who had to buy in bulk in order to receive a discount, and now that person realizes they spent too much and are desperately trying to unload their unsold products on you).

    1. yes, I am concerned about the lead, that is why I went to the company itself to ask for the truth or fiction on the lead claim, which is quite a few years back now. I saw the document from some Environmental based complainant against Plexus Worldwide — you know that is the kind of thing they do to justify their job, right? It is just the document filed with the court, it is not the outcome, so I am checking the outcome. However, i hope we’re all intelligent enough to realize no company willfully allows lead to be in their product. Right now we have vaccines being distributed (again supposedly) that contain traces of glyphosate. Glyphosate is Roundup used extensively by farmers. It has leached into the soil including nearby farms that may be attempting to be organic, leached for sure into the water system and the sewage system (and do we know 100% that sewage is disposed of with no cross-over into the human chain – nope) and potentially is showing up in the vaccines in what seems like small numbers but to the size of the dose of the vaccine is actually critical numbers (if the data is correct — Monsato of course says no – I don’t think that’s impartial enough for me). So I would far rather worry about vaccines which go directly into the blood and bypass all the gut related processes that do a massive job in dealing with toxins, in support of the blood system which also has its place in the cleansing process. But if you research vaccines they are “grown” on entities that potentially are contaminated. Follow Dr. Tenpenny.

  3. Michael,

    Apparently no one is concerned about the recent development of Plexus Worldwide knowingly and intentionally selling products that contain lead. I guess the ambassadors are waiting for marching orders from their uplines.


    1. The folks at Channel 8 in DFW brought out a professional to talk about this product. She pretty much calls it like we all knew it to be. Ambassadors have been instructed to ramp up their posts on Facebook to try and combat this.

    2. Hi Michael and Jim,

      I had one cousin in law bawl me out when I told her brother, “you have no idea what is in this stuff because it is unregulated they can put anything (hello! Ephedra!)” he was genuinely concerned for family members who couldn’t afford it. My other cousin in law had added me and then unfriended me both are Ambassadors. and I’d like to know the results of that lead lawsuit in that they are/were fined $2500 per day for years for failure to warn. Seeing the fact that there have been women who “may” have had strokes and possibly dies mentioned right on this board from this stuff makes me ask the question. When someone dies from this stuff, do you sue Plexus and the rep or just the rep because Plexus is not responsible for anything an Ambassador says?

      It seems Plexus has added an MD to their staff. Though it makes me wonder if we will still get answers.

    3. That’s hilarious – the guy worked at Herbalife, which has been part of class action lawsuits and many other legal issues based on….wait for it….pyramid scheme setup. Coughed up $15 million there. They’re staring down a $200 million settlement right now. And I’m sorry but a PhD. in nutrition from U of Minnesota? Doesn’t sound like a credible guy to me, especially with ties to China, where we know quality control standards are basically “try not to get caught”.

    4. The rating is not C it is currently A or A+. The company also provides a full ingredient list on any product — she is clueless the health reviewer, the ProBio5 doesn’t say the strength of the probiotics (live) on the bottle, it sure does. IT is possible this is a very old newscast, but much of the complaints she brings forward are definitely available as in disclosed. Proprietary blend, they are enzymes or bioflavinoids, not something that would be like how much Omega 3 is my client getting, so I have to be careful and can’t do a co-recommendation. The propietary blends say exactly what enyzmes are included in Probio5. Obviously if they told the exact amounts it would no longer be proprietary.

    5. Debbie,

      Can you explain how a company gets a BBB rating of “A” when they currently have 702 complaints, a 69% negative review rating, and no BBB accreditation? And regarding your comments on the ProBio, that product doesn’t even make the radar for probiotic products that have been tested and rated by 3rd parties. Please do not tout things like “if they told the exact amounts it would no longer be proprietary.” when several probiotic products do exactly that. Other companies actually adhere to industry testing and disclose where their ingredients are sourced. Plexus has never done this and continues to churn out unsourced products, most likely originating from China or India.

  4. Rhonda, your rambling statement is part and parcel of Plexus ambassadors. Since you are so well-versed in all things Plexus, maybe you can answer some very simple and essential questions:
    1 – Where are Plexus products manufactured? Do not tell us at the Arizona corporate HQ because that is not a manufacturing facility.
    2 – Why will Plexus not subject their products to any peer-reviewed studies or quality control standards? Before you throw out the usual “it costs so much” response, please understand that Plexus is very happy to talk about how much money they make.
    3 – Why is Alfred Pettersen, the much-hyped Plexus President, suing Plexus and all the executives therein?

    This is not “trash-talk” as you seem to want to dump everything off on. These are serious questions that no ambassador has the guts (or ability) to answer.

    The rest of your diatribe is nothing different than the garbage we all see on Facebook every day. It’s shameful that you bring your faith into this venue, as if that somehow places you higher than others. My money is that you are one of those who uses religion to sell this poison to others. I don’t think Jesus would approve. See Matthew 6:24 and 1 Timothy 6:9-10.

  5. Have been scrolling through and viewing the comments on Plexus Slim. I am an ambassador for Plexus Slim because I’ve seen some of what it can do. Does it do that for all people? No. Many of the critics here seem to be men….who I would say in general like things black and white. (It works for all or none at all…..or “just eat right, exercise more) I am a woman and realize that some things get gray…or even colored 🙂 What may work for a man may not work for a woman OR what may work for one body type may not for another body type. I started on the Plexus Triplex and have gotten good results, I feel, so am staying on it. I work in health care so do go about things fairly cautiously BUT….I have had friends and heard of others who have gone to medical professionals for things like “brain fog” “depression” or generally what I would refer to as “women’s hormone-type” issues. Most of the medical professionals do not have an answer but are willing to place you on FDA approved prescription drugs. I say, those all have their place but all of them also have “side affects” AND cost money AND there is a pharmaceutical company making some $ off of each prescription sold. This product got rid of my brain fog that I have suffered with, and has slowly given me more energy (so that I FEEL better than I have in quite some time). Is it worth the $100/mo to me….yes it is! I have not lost weight but also have not gained (even through the holidays). I do not know how it works (I am not into all the chemistry)….I do know that the cravings are more controlled and again….I FEEL BETTER than I have in quite some time. THAT is why people buy Plexus and stay on it. I would never recommend that anyone just jump in and take everything that is offered. Some things may work better for some than others. It is not a quick fix and is not the same for everyone. As with any supplement….if it doesn’t work for you in 45 days….send it back…get most of your money back and go on to something that will work. Why is it that everything that you don’t personally agree with has to be TRASH TALKED? In any aspect of life….there are people “preying on weak people”- whether it’s the casinos, the liquor stores, teleevangelists, whatever. One person who wins money at the casino may think they’re great….but a gambler who has just lost his family and fortune because he’s addicted may think they just prey on people. I know there are ambassadors out there who push the “dream” overly much….it’s our job to control what it is we’re pushing and how much. I like the product, signed on as an ambassador, but if you don’t….that’s fine. I am a Christian who follows Jesus Christ….if you’re not…that’s your choice, but please allow me My Choices also, without all of the TRASH TALK. It make you “Michael” come off sounding quite cynical (I have two brothers like that also!) There are many negatives in this world. I choose to try to focus on the positives but also remembering the negatives are there.

    1. Well it would depend what medication, but for the amount of sales that pass through this company monthly, there doesn’t seem to be contraindications for an incredible amount of Americans and Canadians, except a few have such sensitive stomachs they mind the Xfactor vitamin or mind something else that most of us don’t have a stick of sensitivity to. However, my hubby on many blood pressure related meds, and diabetic meds and there is nothing I’ve ever given him to try that made him whew-whew! In the case of those who mind something in their stomach, they have certain things going on that must first be cleared up — likely very bad gut health, leakage, and of course overgrowth of the harmful bacteria and an environment not helping the good bacteria flourish.

  6. Found online, sounds like a lot like someone I used to know.

    Like the turn of the century snake oil salesmen, multi-level marketing professionals hide behind the curtain of saving lives and healing people. The reality is many in the fitness industry are preying on the weak people – the obese, those in poor health, and those lacking self worth after putting on a few pounds. At least the sharks on Wall Street don’t hide the fact they’re in it for the money. Whereas those who sell diet dreams to the overweight and dissatisfied do so under the guise of providing a cure. And it doesn’t stop with the disadvantaged. Supposedly, these diets and supplements can help anyone. “Want to lose a few pounds, get ripped? Here’s how.”

    Remember when your dad used to say, “If it sounds too good to be true…” Yes, it’s kinda like that. That’s how you really know they are full of it – they’ll sell their product to anyone.

    It’s about the Benjamins.”

    By Eric Stevens

    1. The most accurate part of this was “preying on the weak people – the obese, those in poor health, and those lacking self worth after putting on a few pounds.” I cannot tell you how many pictures I have seen of ambassadors speaking in front of crowded rooms of fat women. I’m sorry that’s not a PC description but it is reality. These “Diamonds” are nothing more than predators who have zero knowledge of the ingredients of what they are selling. They only care about signing up more & more saps as it lines their pockets. They will tell you how grand life is, roll out religious-based persuasion, and downright lie to people to get where they are. Try asking these people where the products are manufactured or if any peer-reviewed studies of the ingredients are available and you’ll be trashed by them and their minions. It is sad that people are so mindless that they will believe unproven and unsubstantiated claims but not surprising.

  7. Has it ever occurred to those supporting the drug that because this is mainly WATER based that you’re losing weight from being hydrated and that the supplement isn’t really doing anything for you? Think about it. A lot of healthy people will drink 1-2 glasses of water before a meal. The causes them to feel fuller and therefore suppresses their appetite. While it does promote drinking water, you might as well purchase Crystal Light. Just sayin’.

  8. I am amazed, what products would someone be purchasing to have their monthly costs be in excess of $200? It’s no wonder they hold meetings in Hawaii. The top few are living off of the lower levels in the pyramid. How do these ‘ambassadors’ sleep at night?

    The complainant’s order ******** *ated 10/16/2015 has been refunded, $219.01.

    The complainant’s order ******** dated 11/16/2015 has been refunded, $218.74

    The complainant’s order ******** dated 12/16/2015 has been refunded, $223.06.

  9. So I purchased plexus the tri-plex package. I took it for 6 months faithfully. Drank 1/2 my weight in water. I am not a junk food eater never have been. I ate a few small meals a day.
    All these products have done was make me gain weight, I felt bloated all the time. Made me want to eat all the time, more then I normally would. Had heartburn. I even tried the shakes Plexus 96 when made with coconut milk and fruit is to help reduce your stomach. The have testimonials that you can post to get people to join under you. My up line was on it for over a year and states she lost 70lbs. Looking at pictures of her she might of lost 10.
    The bio cleanse does help with keeping you regular or it could just be because I was drinking more water. The company pays you 5 people down your down line. which is why I feel it is so expensive. Don’t waste your money. Sensible eating and joining a online support group or the buddy system is way cheaper and works better at you are more likely to keep the weight off for good without spending a fortune.

  10. Will not take anything that is not listed in clear writing on the label where it is manufactured and the precise % of ingredients. It will take someone’s death from using this product that will cause this fraudulent company to go to court. If you can not substantiate your clinical trials with more than 8 people and done by independent studies, then do not promote false claims as you the Ambassadors will be held liable. I believe there will be if not already an investigation of this company.
    I have no financial interest in this product and will never endorse or sell it!

  11. Here’s a shining example of how MLM is a pyramid: Plexus ambassadors were told to post the following to their FB pages by uplines – “There were ONLY 1,800 Ambassadors that earned this mind blowing trip to Washington, D.C. We have approximately 300,000 Ambassadors Worldwide and we have only gotten started. Less than 1% qualified for this trip!”

    Less than 1% earning all the fun stuff off the backs of the remaining 99%. Evidence from the ambassadors themselves.

  12. Friend is selling it. Thought I’d try it. Within hours I had a terrible headache and it took a few days for it to go away. I stopped the plexus slim.

  13. Yes…the Plexus virus has struck one of my family members…and they exhibit all the symptoms you’ve described…including using their church facilutues in part for recruitment seminars…


    Sorry to all my friends are out there pushing plexus. But it’s about to go down. PLexus not only didn’t work for me and several of my customers, but in fact actually cause weight gain instead of loss. Even worse after I had cancelled my auto shipment, they charged my credit card anyway, and told me that is it already shipped. Mind you this was at 8 a.m. in the morning long before any UPS FedEx or USPS what do a pickup. When I ask them to cancel that they would not. I had to wait for the product to get to me and then refuse it. It took another two weeks before they could even identify it came back, we are now in our third week and they are refusing to refund my credit card until the billing cycle is over. So they made me gain weight, made my customers gain weight and doubt my integrity, and illegally took my money only to tell me that I have to wait 30 days to get it back. When I asked to speak to a supervisor to resolve this I was told that there is no supervisor that could speak to me and that they would have to put in for a phone call and have someone call me back within 24 to 48 hours it’s now been 3 days and I’ve not gotten a call back. Warning warning warning to all stay away from plexus it’s just another scam!!! SHAME ON YOU PLEXUS!

    1. It seems that Plexus-selling seminars and Web pages are becoming more and more Christian-oriented as they fuse their nonsensical claims with their scriptures….

      Geez…now they are peddling TWO false products…religion and quack supplements…I guess I’m not surprised…

      Americans need to learn to become better critical thinkers…
      This wishful thinking is becoming embarrassing on the World Stage.

      Non-scientists pushing flavored water with some known stimulants of undisclosed concentration…and NO controlled studies or significant sample size….and using a god to excuse the fleecing of their clients…

      This is CRIMINAL.

    2. Randy,
      I agree with you that it is shameful how these people inject their religion into marketing this foul product. However, claiming that religion is false is going too far.
      These Plexus folks will use any method available to push others into believing they can be “blessed” like the top 1% ambassadors. None are as hypocritical as the Double Diamond ambassador from the McKinney area. This woman has bamboozled her followers into believing she is the model Christian, yet she has a history of tantrums and attacks, some of which have been directed at children. I fail to see how parading earnings checks on Facebook follows any of the Bible’s teachings but this is something she’ll have to square one day.
      Also, let me add to your point about no studies, etc. We still have no confirmation from Plexus or any of the ambassadors as to exactly where their ingredients are sourced and manufactured. My money is on Asia or India and we all know how great their quality control is in those countries.

    3. Actually, there are scientific studies regarding religious claims, which is more than Plexus can lay claim to. You and I are on the same sheet of music here – Plexus folks conveniently pull in rubes with their folding in of religious display for this product. In fact, one twit posted some link one time on how their whole church was involved in it. I find it pathetic and on par with televangelism. The people who do this are most likely the biggest hypocrites in the world. I have seen first-hand how these “Christians” behave when other people don’t jump on the Plexus bandwagon. They will shun anyone outside the cult, yet claim that God has blessed them beyond belief with this snake oil.

    4. Plexus claims it is safe to take while you are pregnant and nursing. They also claim all over facebook how it cures everything. Basically you never need to go to the doctor just take plexus and it will cure it. I am so tired of seeing it all over facebook. Why has facebook continue to allow this and why hasn’t the FDA shut them down.

  15. I drink the drink every day. I haven’t lost weight but it made my body not as achey. I am only 40 and just got out of the hospital from having a stroke. My heart and arteries were clear and they don’t really know why I had a stroke. No health problems, don’t drink, smoke or do drugs. I wonder if this is related to my stroke??? I only do the drink, not the pill.

    1. Deb,

      During last year’s Plexus convention in Dallas, TX, an ambassador suffered a stroke. Haven’t hear details of what she was taking in the Plexus line but some of those ingredients have been tied to side effects such as stroke. Also, read above. A poster shared a story of a 43 year-old ambassador who suffered a fatal stroke. This stuff is not good for you and its safety could be called into question.

  16. I have spent so much money on plexus slim products. When it didn’t work at first my ambassador told me to try bio cleanse, pro biotic, the block, and boost. They did not work. She said keep taking it, it takes time. I spent over $ 1,000 on these products for my husband and I and we have not lost any weight. I’m mad at myself for believing the hype and being such a sucker. I had about 5 friends that joined with me when I did and they did not lose weight either. We are also very disappointed.

    1. Stephanie, that is the way Plexus makes their money. You must be purchasing in order for the uplines to make money. It is in their financial interest for you to purchase multiple products a month. They get a cut and those above them get a cut and so on. Don’t be mad at yourself – count yourself as lucky to have realized the scam and gotten out of it. More than that, be satisfied that you are no longer ingesting these untested and unverified chemicals that could have ended up causing more damage to you physically.

  17. I’ve used Plexus Slim, Probio5, Biocleanse and XFactor for the past four months. At first I got headaches and a tightening in my jaw but I stuck with it. Then, I started getting a terrible rash about two months ago and was told to take more cleanse so I did. Rash did not improve. Then, I was told to get the body cream. So I did. That helped with the itchiness but I still had the rash. Last week, my shoulders and jaw starting getting very tense and I had a severe case of heart burn and heart palpitations and pain and tingling in my left arm. My husband thought I should go to the hospital, but I didn’t. He insisted I stop taking all Plexus products. It is now five days later and I am slowly feeling better and the rash is finally going away. In the four months, I lost no weight. I will say though that the Probio 5 worked wonders for my stomach issues. (I have celiac and microscopic colitis.). I tend to be sensitive to most things anyway but thought I should share my experience. Be careful!

  18. Be careful of taking the accelerator! I honestly felt like I was going to have a heart attack. My resting heart rate shot up to 145. I am a fit 40 year old who works out 3 to 5 times per week, eats healthy and just wanted to drop a few pounds for a trip. I had my neighbors on speed dial ready in case I needed a ride to the ER. I have never felt so awful! I truly hope this stuff doesn’t harm anyone…I have heard that there are many like me who have had this happen to them! BEWARE!

  19. Quana, thank you for at least admitting that you are an ambassador while making these claims. You should know that all of that “energy” comes from the stimulants in the product. No ingredient in the Plexus line has any clinical backing to show that it cures or remedies anything connected with allergies. Most likely your headaches and blood sugar issues have been improved as the result of ingesting more water.
    One question I always ask – where is this stuff manufactured? Plexus refuses to disclose where they get the ingredients and where it is processed. I would appreciate it if you could answer that question as no other ambassadors or company reps have ever done.

  20. I love Plexus..I took it for a while to lose weight for a vacation. and decided to stick with it because of all of the other great benefits. I have energy all day, I wake up without feeling sluggish and hitting the alarm 5 times. I no longer take any sinus or allergy meds since taking Plexus (which has saved me money right there) I feel full alot which keeps me from eating and will eventually cause weight loss. I also dont have sugar cravings.. I can sit by a donut with no urge to eat it and that never used to happen before. I ADORE cheesecake and now the thought of it kind of makes my stomach hurt. I used to suffer from daily headaches whenever i wore my hair up or in a ponytail.. i no longer have any headaches. Regulating my blood sugar and cleaning my gut has made all these things possible.. Yes I am an ambassador as most people become after they find out how great the product is.. i used it for 5 months before even thinking about sharing it w/ anyone. but the results were just too great for me not to.

    1. Works different for everyone I suppose. Sugar is my weakness, and after taking plexus, sugar is still my weakness. I crave it all day. No weight loss. Only benefit is energy for a few hours after taking it…. $120 a month is quite expensive for an energy drink though.

    2. Stephanie, the “energy” you got was from the stimulants in the products. A very unsafe way to get “energy”, according to most medical experts. Our bodies will initially accept a stimulant and produce that lifted feeling. However, as with all drugs, either the body begins to reject the stimulant (“jitters”, nausea, sweating, dizziness) or it will demand more in order to get the same lift. Either way, it is extremely dangerous to be ingesting these things. Mixing stimulants and appetite suppressants is incredibly bad on your system, especially the heart and liver. Throw in things like Bio-Cleanse, which is an over-priced laxative, and you are throwing your body into all kinds of deficits which will result in long-term health issues.

  21. I recently went to a Pink Plexus party and was not impressed at all. The male ambassador spoke sexist talk (women more likely to become overweight than men). Also, he said things that disagreed indirectly with what my nutrition instructor (a registered dietician) taught my classmates and me. The ambassador made a claim that users have lost over 10 pounds in one month. My nutrition instructor said that losing more than five pounds in one month, although desirable, is unhealthy.

    Also, I read Plexus user statistics online. It showed that 84.2% of all Plexus users said that Plexus did not work. Thanks so much for your posting! I will not be using Plexus! I will take omega 3 fish oil and CoQ10, drink plenty of water, eat more fruits, vegetables and grains, and exercise more!

  22. Can anyone tell me WHERE pthers products are manufactured? I can only find that they are manufactured BY a company with an address in AZ. This doesn’t let the consumer know if they are made in the US, Mexico or China. Would appreciate any insight.

    1. Joe,
      The safe bet is that these products are manufactured in Asia somewhere, just as most supplements on the market are now. The mere fact that Plexus has such a high price point indicates that they have to get a rock-bottom price per unit in order to pay commissions to the ambassador, uplines, and overall company share. You cannot do that with current US manufacturing costs. Plexus has never disclosed where they manufacture their products, nor have they ever provided any clinical studies or testing of their products. When a company is that secretive, something is wrong. The Arizona address is just an office location, not a manufacturing site.

  23. I began to see several friends giving rave reviews on Plexus so a friend of mine gave me several samples of pink drink to try. The first night I could not sleep, the second day I got excess gas, ran to the rest room a lot and the start of a headache. I was also very tired. The third day was the worse. My stomach was very upset, worse headache and my energy level was zero. I felt like I was getting the flu. After drinking part of my morning pink drink I began to research it and found some real problems that some had with the product. I had ordered some and called to cancel my order. It took 2 days to even start to feel like a human again. All I know is Plexus made me very sick.

  24. I have been using Plexus Slim for a little over a year and within 6 months of starting had lost 35lbs. & have kept it off. I believe I first noticed that it changed my food cravings from “bad for you” foods like chips, soda, & cookies to “good for you” foods like more fruits and veggies. At my last checkup my cholesterol reading was so good, that my doctor even took me off my cholesterol meds that I had been on for years. Even though I don’t need to lose any more weight, I believe in this product and will continue to use it daily because I believe that it is helping to keep me healthy.

    1. Mike,

      Can you explain how any chemical alters the brain to crave “good foods” over “bad foods”? To date, I have seen no data that any appetite suppressant does that. Suppressants work by signaling the brain that the body is all good for fuel. It does not alter the brain’s ability to differentiate between good and bad foods. Your Plexus talking point is noted but it would be nice for you to actually explain how this product seemingly does something that no supplement or drug on the market has ever been able to do. And as far as keeping you “healthy”, you might want to see just how healthy things like higenamine and yerba mate are for you.

    2. Michael, I have been reading this thread and your comments with great interest, and I wanted to say I appreciate your calm voice of reason. A very dear friend of mine became an Ambassador for plexus in January. In March she posted on Facebook how she “hadn’t been sick all year.” And credited the products.
      About three weeks ago she mentioned on Facebook that she was going to double up on one of the products because her rapid weight loss was plateauing.
      10 days ago, on March 26th, she collapsed in mid conversation with her husband. She was rushed to the hospital where they discovered she had had a massive stroke. Posts went up on Facebook to pray and all we could do was pray and tearfully wonder “why on earth would a 43 year old mom of two little girls under 7 just suddenly have a stroke?! Especially when she had been exclaiming since January how she “felt great!” And she was losing weight and had “tons do energy” thanks to Plexus.
      Last Saturday her brain began to hemorrhage and they did an emergency craniectomy. They could not stop the hemorrhaging and she died on Sunday March 29th. Her little girls lost their devoted mama. Her husband, parents, family and many friends are left devastated and completely stunned. Today, she was laid to rest.
      I share this with everyone here, but especially with you Michael, because I have learned a lot from your posts, and the more I learn, the angrier I am becoming.
      Like everyone who knew her, I am searching for answers. How could a vibrant healthy woman have a massive stroke and die 2 days later?
      It started to nag at me this afternoon, after being at her funeral and seeing all the devastation and sorrow. That “pink stuff” I had heard her talk about so much and she kept touting on her wall..what exactly was that?
      I’ve gone back over her posts in the days leading up to her stroke and saw the Plexus products she was taking and the doubling up.
      I realize this is just a theory and research on my part, and it won’t bring her back. But what I am discovering is deeply disturbing.
      And before the pseudo-commenters start attacking me, stifle it. No, I have no proof, I am merely searching for answers. And yes, she did admit to doubling one of the supplements right before her death–but hey, if it’s “safe and great for you” then taking more isn’t a bad thing, right?
      I’m going to continue to read what you’ve posted Michael, but I just wanted to stop and tell you thank you for your intelligent, measured responses and the links you’ve shared. You show the comment product trolls for the brain-washed sycophants they are.
      And to everyone touting how great it is and/or selling it–be careful what you claim.
      And for anyone thinking of trying it–please PLEASE do your research and think carefully before you put anything in your body that can do you more harm than good.

    3. Hello Jenny, a couple of hours ago my aunt passed away quite suddenly. She was taking Plexus and also was going on about it and how she had so much energy. My first thought was this stuff. It has been a year since you posted this, so I was wondering if you learned anything new since. I’m a bit in shock and wanting answers as her son is still taking it and I am concerned for him. Like you, I can only speculate this was the cause.

  25. I have been doing the Pink Drink along with the Accelerator since July of 2013. I was at 395 pounds when I started. As of February 3, 2014 I am at 294. I also make healthy food choices, and just recently joined a gym. There is no “Magic Pill”, but I do believe that the Plexus regimen HAS worked for me, ALONG with a healthier lifestyle. I have no health issues other than the fact I am fat, but I don’t want to have any either, as I will be 55 in March. It could all be in my mind, but hey it’s working. Thanks.

  26. J

    Due to the new PS formulations not being as effective as the initial ones, the ambassadors have been guilty of using testimonials that are 2 to 3 years old. Testimonials mean nothing anyway. Not very reputable unless you are one of the MLM simpletons.

    By the way, PS has been investigated for making false claims for products, and was recently sent a warning letter from the FDA.

  27. I used plexus for a month and gained 6 pounds. The person who sold it to me said that sometimes results won’t happen right away. Also to drink as many ounces of water that is equal to half my weight. All I see being posted are these testimonials of people losing large amounts of weight right away and how you don’t have to change any of your eating habits. I guess the saying if it’s to good to be true is right. Also maybe they need to be investigated on the claims that it cures asthma, diabetes, and numerous other things.

    1. Oh yes, and every product works the day you take it. NO you won’t lose weight the first day or week you take it. You don’t lose weight the first day you do Jenny Craig, Nutrisystem, Weight Watchers, or Hydroxycut! It takes time. I didn’t lose weight the first day I took the products either. I am not an ambassador, I just tried it because a friend told me I should try it. I have had great success with it, and my daughter who is 9 just asked me if she could drink the Pink Drink because it made her feel good. They have to post 1% caffeine but that is hardly any. I feel comfortable letting my kids use most of the products! My friend doesn’t post it cures things, and I am pretty sure others aren’t doing that anymore. Because we all know it doesn’t cure anything, plus many friends of mine taking it have brought the products to their Doctor who told them that all the ingredients were safe.

    2. Ellen, you’re lying to us. “I am not an ambassador”. You are most definitely an ambassador and here is your Plexus website to prove it: ellenfuller dot myplexusproducts dot com

    3. Ellen, I was on plexus for more than just a day or a week. I asked my doctor recently about plexus slim and she told me anything that promises weight loss from drinking a powder mixed with water, sprinkling a powder on food, etc., is nonsense and doesn’t work. She said that pretty much the only thing that works is healthy eating and exercise. As for saying we all know that it doesn’t cure anything, well tell that to the ambassadors that are posting that it cures everything under the sun.

  28. I started taking Plexus Slim November 5th, 2014. I was quite skeptical, because it all sounded to good to be true. However, given the unheard of 60-day money back guarantee, I felt it was worth trying. Needless to say, after 3 weeks of no cravings, no naps, amazing energy, sleeping like a baby, a loss in weight and inches, I, too, decided to become an ambassador. While we can lose weight with a sensible diet, lots of people, like myself, lack willpower to make proper choices. With the cravings gone, it was easy to make good choices. Also, with feeling full after smaller portions, it’s been easy to eat less! I’m off all my medications, have lost 19 pounds, and am down 2 pant sizes. I’ve failed multiple attempts to lose weight. Plexus is about WELLNESS and a lifestyle change. I cannot imagine life without Plexus. You can substantiate my story by going to my Facebook page (Cindy Boyd) or by coming to my church in Hillsboror, Ohio, Good News Gathering. You will meet dozens of people with stories just like mine.

    1. Cindy,

      A couple of questions for you:
      – Are you aware of the FDA’s warning letter to Plexus Worldwide regarding the unsubstantiated claims it has made with some of it’s products?
      – Are you aware of the side effects of ingredients in the Plexus line, such as Yerba Mate, Higenamine, and other stimulants? Are you OK with selling those types of things to people as an ambassador?
      – If Plexus isn’t about the weight loss, then why are all of its products touted as a way to lose weight and why are ambassadors coached to use before & after pictures on their FB pages as well as posts that tout weight loss?
      – Are you aware that no clinical study exists that substantiates any claim made by Plexus products? Have you now or ever before made claims that Plexus cures or alleviates any type of medical condition such as migraines, ADHD, fibromyalgia, arthritis, auto-immune disorders, digestive issues, etc? Have you now or ever before made statements regarding Plexus being safe to give to children?

    2. Sigh. Again with the FDA letter. Here is the info on it. Sheesh! “Hi, Last year, our original Accelerator contained GeranaX. This ingredient was used (and is still used) in numerous supplements for weight loss and pre-workout supplements. Also last year, the FDA decided that this ingredient should not be used anymore and while some companies still use it – Plexus decided to be proactive and remove this ingredient from our product. This is when we reformulated to Accelerator Plus. We no longer carry any product with GeranaX since last year.

      At no time were we ever contacted by any government agency to remove this ingredient – we do so on our own. However, there is lingering info about the original product so it comes up from time to time.”

    3. Ellen,

      You can sigh all you want. It doesn’t change the fact that Plexus was contacted by the FDA for violations. And it wasn’t for “GeranaX”, either. Plexus Accelerator did not just contain “GeranaX”. It was found to contain DMAA. If you need information on that, by all means:

      The FDA letter was something completely separate from DMAA being banned and their rush to reformulate. Let’s review those items, shall we? –
      “Examples of some of the website claims that provide evidence that your products are intended for use as drugs include:

      Fast Relief

      “Nerve damage is present to some degree in most cases of chronic pain, especially neck and back pain. Nerve damage can occur due to trauma, medication side effects, or other metabolic issues.”
      “Features & Benefits…[m]ay reduce the associated symptoms from nerve damage of pain, numbness, tingling, ‘pins and needles’ sensations, and weakness.”


      ProBio5 will typically provide the following results…jock itch, migraine headaches, recurring cystitis/vaginal infections…”

      Bio Cleanse

      “Why do you need Plexus Bio-Cleanse? Many people are in a low oxygen/toxic state….[v]iruses, bacteria, fungi, and other pathogenic microbes thrive in this condition, and can lead to disease such as flu, Candida, chronic fatigue, etc. Plexus Bio-Cleanse can increase the oxygen levels around these microbes, causing them to die due to their high-oxygenated environment.”

      Your Fast Relief, ProBio5 and BioCleanse are not generally recognized as safe and effective for the above referenced uses and, therefore, the products are “new drugs” under section 201(p) of the Act [21 U.S.C. § 321(p)]. New drugs may not be legally introduced or delivered for introduction into interstate commerce without prior approval from FDA, as described in section 505(a) of the Act [21 U.S.C. § 355(a)]; see also section 301(d) of the Act [21 U.S.C. § 331(d)]. The FDA approves a new drug on the basis of scientific data submitted by a drug sponsor to demonstrate that the drug is safe and effective.

      Furthermore, your Fast Relief, ProBio5 and BioCleanse are offered for conditions that are not amenable to self-diagnosis and treatment by individuals who are not medical practitioners; therefore, adequate directions for use cannot be written so that a layperson can use these drugs safely for their intended purposes. Thus, these drugs are misbranded under section 502(f)(1) of the Act [21 U.S.C. § 352(f)(1)] in that their labeling fails to bear adequate directions for use. The introduction of a misbranded drug into interstate commerce is a violation of section 301(a) of the Act [21 U.S.C. § 331(a)].

      The violations cited in this letter are not intended to be an all-inclusive list of violations that exist in connection with your products.”

      Ellen, you are incredibly misread when it comes to these issues regarding Plexus. For an “Ambassador”, you should be more aware of your products that you sell. For example, you tout how “GeranaX” isn’t in the Accelerator product. However, you conveniently ignore that Boost and Accelerator still contain Yerba Mate and Higenamine, which are harmful ingredients. Please don’t come in here and misrepresent what Plexus is and attempt to act is if they did a wonderful thing by taking a product off the market. Perhaps they shouldn’t have had it on the market in the first place.

  29. I like the drink, it tastes good and it does help me suppress my cravings, particularly with sugary foods which, i’m addicted to, I think. But its waaaaay too expensive. My wife switched back to hcg drops which really do help her drop weight fast. I personally think that regular chromium picolinate from walmart or any health store can be substituted for plexus and give you similar results.

  30. I think Micheal outta get a job or something, it seems as though you comment on everything whether against or for the product, with your so called claims of knowledge when never actually trying the product which is fine nobody is forcing it upon you but please keep in mind It’s a free country people can do and buy as they please on whatever products they chose so why don’t you get a life and stop harassing those who like this product if there happy with the results then great! You don’t furnish there bank accounts and there health isn’t your concern not to mention just because you read something doesn’t make it true, Plexus is sold in Australia mate so I’d highly recommend you mind your business worry about your own self before your non stop ranting causes you a stroke.

    1. None of your business states:
      “I think Micheal outta get a job or something…”

      I think you need to revisit some grade school grammar, friend. Between the run-on sentences, spelling errors and such, reading what you post could give someone a stroke.

      By the way – the “free country” issue you bring up – it works on the internet as well, mate. I can post my opinions. I can post research that I find. If research and opinion offends you, well I’m so sorry for you.

    2. A friend told me about this “great new product” this morning and so I thought I would do some research about it. I, too, noticed that Michael seems heavily vested in rebuttals against this supplement or whatever it is. It’s like he keeps coming back to argue with people who give it a good report. Seems like a lot of energy to spend to the “lemmings” as people call them, just to insult them and make fun of them.

    3. I’m sorry, did you have anything pertinent to say about the Plexus product or is this just your way of making yourself feel good about spending money on an untested and unproven supplement? While you’re doing your “research”, be sure to find out where these products are manufactured as well as the effects of higenamine and yerba mate. Enjoy ingesting this stuff.

  31. Save your money! I have never tried this product, but on the other hand I am tall, slim and healthy! I eat meat,fresh fruit, and I even eat vegetables!I am not a health freak and I am not a fitness freak!There is no such thing as being able to eat a pile of processed junk and then take a “diet pill” and you will instantly lose the pounds.My advice? Try and eat healthier and go for a walk, exercise in your living room. SAVE YOUR MONEY! The reason for this post? I am FED UP WITH MLM’S and the diet industry trying to rip you off of your hard erned money! I have nothing to gain from this post, other than the fact that I am fed up with people getting ripped off. You can pay attention to this post, Or you can ignore it.It’s not my money, so feel free to spend your money wherever you please.

  32. Do your research people,the world is all out to get in your pocket book ! Everyone knocks all products out there or raves about a product out there if it benefits him or her. Do your research on all your pharmaceuticals,all your over the counter medications you are taking or giving your kids ! I am a cancer survivor and do my research…. Anything excessive is very dangerous,yes even simple Tylenol can kill you!. The post of the FDA,what a joke, Fda is the biggest crook around,money hungry as all ! Money is the root of all evil and all are out to get in your wallet. Oh FYI,I do slim,have lost 56 pounds and will stay on slim….BLESSINGS EVIL,SICK WORLD !!!!

    1. Kim,
      You stay on that slim. Your uplines need that business so that they can take trips to Hawaii. The FDA post is no joke. Plexus overstepped their boundaries by making claims that their products cure things when there has been no evidence of such. Please know that Yerba Mate, which is in Plexus products (Boost), has been known to increase cancers of the mouth, head and neck, esophagus, bladder, larynx, kidney, and lung and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. You tell others to do their own research, yet you’re OK with promoting a product that can result in cancer? And you have the gall to mention “Evil, Sick World”.

    2. @ Michael It’s almost like a cult isn’t it?Guess some people have to learn the hard way!

    3. I think it has become a cult 100%. Top earners jet off to Hawaii and Florida for grandiose “leader meetings” while their downlines post on Facebook about how excited they are to see their uplines partying it up and how they’ll be there next year, etc. Its truly sad to see these folks believing something that will never come true.

    4. Who is “they”, Cindy? If you ask me, ingesting supplements whose ingredients are not regulated and cannot be verified isn’t a good option.

    5. NO SUPPLIMENTS ARE REGULATED!!!! NO Suppliments are FDA regulated! Good Grief!!!! I am not an ambassador but good grief!!!!!

    6. Kim, your comment about money being the root of all evil is a common misquote. I Timothy 6:10 says, “For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil.” Big difference, but I understand what you are saying. Personally I would not participate in a pyramid scheme (MLM) or risk my health with Plexus.

  33. I have been taking Plexus products for a month. I already drink a gallon of water a day and eat a sensible diet plus I walk and do yoga. I am obese by about 100 pounds, but surprisingly healthy (no, that is not a joke nor am I excusing the obesity hence my exercise and sensible eating plan created by a doctor and nutritionist). My last doctors appointment (a month ago) showed slight hypertension (140/80), optimal cholesterol (total and the good kind), optimal sugar levels, optimal EKG and overall good readings and bloodwork. Even my thyroid is fine. Yet, I am obese.
    I tried this product in the hopes it would help in addition to my food plan and exercise program. However, in a month I have lost no pounds, no inches and have in fact gained 15 pounds! I have exercised the same as I normally do and eaten the same as well on a low sugar, gluten free, low fat diet the doctor put me on three months ago. I also did not notice a boost in energy or feeling any better than I normally do.
    The only upside was that I did notice some improved mental clarity. The same boost that I get when I drink Yerba Mate tea. With a 15 pound gain (my first weight gain in ten years) and not feeling any different and the obscene cost, I will not be taking this product any longer. If it works for you, that is wonderful. You are blessed. But I and the half dozen friends I encouraged to try with me are all walking away as not one of us had any noticeable changes and some of us had negative changes.
    Plexus is a dud in our book. 🙁

    1. When will they shut them down. I am so tired of facebook allowing all these claims They still claim it cures almost everything on facebook. They claim it cures diabetes, leaky gut, cholesterol, migraines, high blood pressure, cardio problems, lowers lipids, weight loss, weight gain, helps with sleep, gives you energy, safe to take while you are pregnant, safe to take while you are pregnant, fda approved, doctor approved, adhd, autism, and etc. When is this going to stop and US ban them just like other countries. I wish facebook would ban them. The letter that FDA sent them has not made any difference. The claims of plexus cures is all over facebook. They are being doctors which should be against the law. Facebook should stop this.

    2. We’ll see if the FDA shuts them down. They are too focused on natural health practitioners, raiding their offices and warehouses, and forcing them into bankruptcy while confiscating client databases.

  34. I was a Sr. Ruby with Plexus and making over four thousand a month. I can say it is just like a cult. The uplines do NOT allow any negativity or questions put on team pages. I am 55 and I did lose weight…but I suffered bad health from Plexus. I lost 40 lbs and got down to 115 lbs. It gave me high blood pressure, GERD, heart racing, an abnormal EKG, strange liver enzyme readings, and MUCH MORE. I quit the company and have lived a nightmare. They jump on people like traitors when one realizes that MONEY is all they are interested in and they are giving this JUNK to children. At the convention, the “new product” was the X Factor Vitamin for the family. Guess what? It is NOT natural. It has sucralose, and red and blue dyes in it. The company received so many negative feedbacks from the ambassadors that they immediately sent out an email saying they were changing the formula. I am a retired professional and I can promise you that now it is believed to be made in CHINA. The label “made in the USA” is no longer put on anything. Also, a doctor that I trust believes it contains steroids. My health got worse after six months but I lost the weight. I am glad I did not become dependent on the money and gave most of my money away to those that needed it. I feel this company is one of the worst scams I have seen. It was my first venture into an MLM and will be my last. Save your money and your health. Say NO to this pink cult.

    1. Brook Ann, thanks for your input. What you said completely jives with what many have seen. It is cultish and scary how so many people will jump on the bandwagon for the love of money. I hope your health issues subside and that none of these people continue to harass you. I have seen so many ambassadors who hide behind the cloak of their faith become utterly vindictive when anyone has anything less than positive to say about these sham products. I hope that has not been thrown upon you.

    2. I am at present an ambassador with Plexus on my way out. I totally agree with Brook Ann that there is no negative talk allowed on team pages. I have asked questions several times to find that my comments have been deleted and put in a personal message to 3-4 people. All I was doing was asking for suggestions and help. My first 3 months with Plexus I gained 7 lbs. The next 5 months I added another 23 lbs. for a total of 30 lbs. I have not changed my eating habits except that I do now drink about 75 oz. of water per day. When I asked help from the team they all decided I was drinking too much water and it was water detention. With my team if I ask 1 question I get 15 different answers. I don’t sleep but about 3-4 hours per night, the miagraines are back, the energy is gone and basically I feel like crap. When I talk to my up line the suggestions are always to take more of this or more of that. I am now spending about $300-$350 per month for me and hubby and he only takes 2 BioCleanse, 2 ProBio and 2 XFactor a day. I don’t know about you but money does not grow on trees at my house and it is time to draw my line in the sand. How can I promote and try to recruit people when it does not work for me?

  35. I started taking plexus October 2013 and in 2 months lost 17 pounds. I had gone to the doctors in September and was in good health, but had weight to lose. I took plexus for 4 months and stopped when I went to my doctors to see if plexus had helped me in other ways other than weight lose and to my displeasure I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. They claim that it helps to get rid of it, yet I got it while taking plexus. I stopped drinking the “pink drink” started eating clean and within 6 weeks my blood sugars were back to normal. And before you ask, I was eating healthy while on plexus( I did lose 17 pounds). I do not think this is the miracle drink that people think it is!

    1. I am a rep under another pesron. I wished I would have found your site site first to work with you because my upline is not helpful at all. She doesn’t like calls.

  36. I will have to say that I inquired about the pink drink in regards to my blood sugar. I am actually hypoglycemic and my sugar had been up and down. I also drank probably 12 diet cokes a day, which I know is horrible. I got a trial of the plexus slim and I have been taking it now for 10 days. I can actually say that I feel like I have more energy and It has made me not like the taste of diet coke. I might have 2 a day maxim. I actually signed up to be an ambassador to buy it for myself cheaper. I have not taken the accelerator, but I do know people who have and like it. I have also seen positive reviews from my friends about the Probio5 and Biocleanse, but I haven’t tried them either.

  37. I am in my late 40’s . I am an avid exerciser and I eat healthy. I started this in my mid 30’s when I began to gain weight. I have been able to maintain a healthy weight for about 10 years. Unfortunately the last 2 years, while maintaining healthy eating habits and exercising, my body has begun to change. the weight has not increased much , but the inches have. I upped my exercising program to try to combat this but what I am finding as I age is that it takes less calories and more exercise to keep me where I want to be. My daughter told me about plexus and even though I have very little weight to drop I decided to try it. I suffer from migraines and had also read that it had helped people with migraines. I measured my self before I started because the lbs were not my issue. the inches were. After 2 months I measured I have lost 1.5 inches off my waist and 1 inch off my thigh area. I wont say that plexus curves all my cravings , I think the hormones win out on that battle, but it has helped me lose some inches and I do feel I have a little more energy. Migraines have lessoned slightly, I have only been on it for 3 months. I am hoping after another month or 2 I will see a bigger decrease in migraines. I say try it. If it works for you great!!! If not move on until you find something that does. I am a full believer that you have to eat right and exercise to stay healthy and that should be your main goal

  38. I’ve been on this product for two weeks. I can attest to the loose stools and gas. I haven’t really lost inches or pounds. I can say that the first two weeks when I started the Whole 30 I had lost 10 pounds. I was cranky,which was expected, because I had given up sugars and bread and beer and legumes… you get the drift. I was unable to workout because of an impingement in my shoulder so my weight loss was purely diet related. After the thirty days I was able to maintain a substantial amount of weight loss. Over the following quarter I regained some weight because I live in Louisiana and EVERYTHING is delicious…and bad for you on some level. I tried the Plexus as a personal comparator to the Whole 30. I haven’t read everyone’s comments, but I can attest to the fact that diet change (while extremely hard) is the most effective way to impact your overall weight. I’m not promoting anything but wanted to contribute to the discussion. I’ve been in medicine for 10 years and I would like to see some peer reviewed data. This product isn’t regulated by the FDA so that likely won’t happen.


    1. The last sentence sums it up perfectly – no FDA regulation on this product. Funny how people expect standards in the foods they buy off grocery store shelves but will ingest this garbage without knowing anything about the supplement industry and how they get away with things.

  39. I tried Plexus slim with the accelerator for 8 weeks. I can honestly say it did nothing but give me gas and diarrhea. I called the ambassador after 4 weeks and she said is sometimes takes longer for people to get the benefits. It did not curb my appetite or stop the sugar cravings. After 8 weeks I should have had lost weight or inches. Nothing!!! I give it a big thumbs down!!!

  40. I heard about all the hype from my friends so decided to try it. I work out regularly with a personal trainer but have a hard time controlling my sugar cravings. I’d like to lose 10 pds. While that’s not alot of weight to lose, I figured if it would help regulate my blood sugar and controll cravings, that would be a good thing. So I bought a 30 day supply of the Slim. I take it every day about 30 before lunch.

    I am now nearing the end of the 30 day period and have not lost any weight. I did not measure myself before I started but have not noticed a difference in how my clothes fit. I haven’t gained weight either but that could be due to the fact that I had a colonscopy 2 weeks ago and a severe head cold this past week. Does Plexus really work? I can’t speak for others because I think it’s an individual thing but for me, I think I’ll continue to do it the natural way and keep on working out and eating right. As far as the sugar cravings go, I haven’t had those recently but not sure if it’s because of my cold or a benefit of the Plexus. I’m going to stop taking Plexus for the next 30 days and see if the cravings return or not.

  41. Doesn’t anyone want to bring up how it is banned in other countries proven to cause stroke and psychiatric disorder? No? No promoters of the product seem to think that’s important huh? It is on the official Australian and Canadian government websites (easy to google) and i’m sure other countries as well.

    1. Very interesting Brandy. At the Dallas Convention they just held, some lady suffered a stroke during a lunch there. One has to wonder what supplements she was taking from Plexus and if they had any contribution to her condition.

    2. Michael, did you attend the Plexus convention in Dallas? I’m assuming since you know nothing about it, probably not. The woman who suffered the stroke at the dinner (not lunch) had a pre-existing condition that had nothing to do with the supplements she was taking. How do I know? I was there and was very familiar with the situation.
      I have nothing but great things to say about this company and the Plexus products (not just Slim). They have given me my life back and I am 40 lbs lighter today than I was when I started. I had terrible eating and drinking habits. Now I can’t even drink soda! I have heard testimonies from so many that have found relief from years of chronic pain, gastrointestinal problems, and skin issues. I have heard the term “lemming” several times on this thread and that’s insulting. I don’t go to ambassador meetings to be brainwashed and I’m certainly not in a cult. I have found health success with this product and as far as the business end goes, I have worked for two other network-marketing companies and the Plexus compensation plan is absolutely the best out there. They truly care about their ambassadors because they know they are the reason their company exists. So, please stop the bashing. Unless you have tried the product yourself, you really have nothing on which to stand.

    3. “The woman who suffered the stroke at the dinner (not lunch) had a pre-existing condition that had nothing to do with the supplements she was taking. How do I know? I was there and was very familiar with the situation.”

      Funny how people step up in situations like this and claim to know everything about everything. JenW, do you know if this lady had ever taken Accelerator? If so, she was exposed to DMAA, which has been linked to instances of stroke.
      Plexus pulled DMAA from its product and replaced it with the new Accelrator, which contains Higenamine, a stimulant, which has also been found to cause several issues such as arrhythmias and death.
      “Boost” contains Yerba Mate, which has been shown to have an increase in certain cancers (mouth, head and neck, esophagus, bladder, larynx, kidney, and lung and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma) –

      All 3 of the above listed products are nothing more than stimulants, which the medical community roundly urges the population not to take on a frequent basis.

      So JenW, you go right on ahead and ingest as much of that stuff as you possibly can. Sell it to your friends. Give it to children. Make as many outrageous claims on your Facebook page as you possibly can. I don’t need to ingest any of that garbage to know that its nothing more than a scheme that will eventually lead to health problems down the road, perhaps even worse for others. Health doesn’t come from a pill or powder. It never has and never will.

    4. Instead of posting third party articles, post links to reputable scientific journals that back up your claims, example the New England Journal of Medicine, statistical analysis, confidence intervals, etc. Also post your credentials that make you an expert on this subject. Until you do, your posts are to be taken with a grain of salt. Primary sources only please.

    5. To rv:
      One of my links was from information released by the FDA. I guess that’s not legitimate enough for you.
      The article regarding higenamine has 10 references at the bottom of the page. The yerba mate article has 26 references at the bottom. Scroll down and you will find information there.

      With regards to my credentials, the only thing I can offer you is that I have proffered information regarding the ingredients in these products. References are cited. Instead of looking at those articles and seeing that there is in fact hard study information provided, your best counter to that is the difficulty you have in using a mouse to scroll down a page in your haste to try and knock me personally. If we are to take anything with a grain of salt, it should be the comments of those who demand information that is right under their nose.

  42. With so many positive responses, I’m very confused about how negative this post is.
    I started drinking Plexus Slim three months ago. I have not changed my diet. I was gaining weight and stopped gaining. I lost 2 lbs and 24 inches. I never drank soda, so I had no cravings to stop. It did not curb my craving for sweets.
    But this product does far more than help people who are struggling with weight issues, cravings, high blood sugar, high cholesterol, etc. for me personally, I have a miraculously significant decrease in migraine headaches and an increase in energy. After years of daily suffering, I finally was introduced to a tangible aid to wellness. The testimonies speak for themselves and unless you give it a 60 day try, you cannot have the opinion that this product is a placebo. It helps too many people. It is not hype. People love this product because it works and it is WORTH the expense.

    1. “The testimonies speak for themselves”
      Do you say the same for those testimonies that claim it doesn’t work and further caused health issues?

  43. I been taking the oink drink for about 2months and I have lost right about 16lbs and inches also. I totally agree I don’t drink soda or snack at night for sweets life itself feels so much better and all I can say you never know about nothing with out investigating or trying it and I really love the product itself no bad taste or after taste anyone that is really trying to lose weight this will be the product and please give plexus drink a chance and for you too. I am still on the pink drink because I have a goal and I have not reach my goal at all yet but now since the weather has change I walk in the early morning for my daily exercise at least 4 times a week my usually days are Monday, Tuesday, Saturday and sunday I feel great when done I drink my pink every morning at 7:00am and take my pill at the same time and then I eat salad, no snack, and then I eat a boil, grill, piece of meat and vegetables I drink plenty of water through out the day everyone pleas give plexus “pink” drink a try.

  44. Here’s my opinion on Plexus – If you have a interest in the product try it. If You don’t like it don’t buy it again. You people that are on here trashing this product are making me laugh. What works for some doesn’t always work for others. Read the disclaimer on the study done on Plexus. Good Luck to all who are trying Plexus. It’s certainly your choice.

    1. J, would that study be the one where 8 subjects were used in an uncontrolled study using a formula that doesn’t exist any longer? What exactly does the disclaimer state?

  45. I am a firm believer that lifestyle changes are the only true way to lose weight and keep it off. So my questions are simple. What happens when you stop taking this magic potion? Does this keep you from returning to bad habits once you can no longer pay $100 a month? Also, I remember a few other diets claiming no side effects and years later, you see commercials to join in major lawsuits because of deaths or permanent side effects and/or health issues. Lastly, how can you do a study on eight people and then claim to be a safe product for people on ANY medication. Are they taking into account that most people are on more than one medication (sadly) and how can you test every medication combination with your product? This leads me to believe a lot of animal testing is being done or they are just bold faced liars. A doctor with real ethics would never tell you to pick a diet over healthy eating and exercise. Doctors realize obese people do not want to hear the truth. They know most Americans are looking for the quick fix so why keep fighting with their patient. Easier to tell them or give them what they want which is why we use the term diet “fads”. Go to your doctor tomorrow and ask this: Dr. Smith, would you recommend diet and exercise or this new diet supplement? If he says supplement, find a new doctor. Which brings up another point. If this drink gives me all I need, where are the nutrients or protein? If before you began, you ate badly, then how will you get all of your energy and nutrients with a belly full of water and this product? Keeping unhealthy eaters filled with water makes the window of healthy eating even smaller. If there is little or no caffeine, where does the energy come from? I see no B-12 listed which is a natural energy producer. Also, The distribution of this product sounds more like a pyramid scheme. The pity in this is consumers are so desperate to lose weight, but do not want to work hard for the rewards of good health that they will try anything in a society that is all about vanity and ego. Common sense would tell you and history has taught us there is no miracle cure for obesity. Time, exercise, balanced diet and healthy portions is the only cure. Those that tell you different are selling you a bag of magic beans; profiting off the weak and ignorant. I hope the people that are selling this have been provided more research than I could find because from what I see, it is very vague. If you do it right the first time, you will save a lot of time, money and energy. More important you will lose the weight and keep it off. Without sacrifice, you cannot appreciate rewards and it is human nature to take for granted what you do not earn. From the claims I have read, you do not lose weight any faster with this drink than if you eat right, control portions and do some exercise. The difference is you have an extra $100 at the end of each month to invest somewhere else. Glucose is easily controlled with diet and easy exercise, so again, this product seems useless. I know the “ambassadors” will not like my logic, but these are people that see nothing wrong with a company that forces you to become or purchase from an agent. Really, does that ridiculous title do something for your ego?

    1. I know many people who have health issues such as thyroid, auto immune, diabetes and breast cancer, none of whom are obese. Plexus Slim helps them so why does it matter so much to you? Your own agenda maybe?

    2. “helps them” is a very loose and broad term. Exactly what is this “help” you speak of and what compounds in Plexus Slim are scientifically proven to bring about this “help”? Your agenda must be called into question as well.

    3. Plexus Slim is not a ‘diet’ it is a drink designed to help people make healthier food choices by curbing their cravings for bad foods. You need to do more research before saying a doctor would have no ethics if they recommended the product. While doing the research you can research the ingredients and find out exactly why it does work.

      I admit to not reading anything other then those 2 points as you obviously have no clue about the product you are criticizing.

    4. “curbing their cravings for bad foods”

      This is a new one. I’ve never known an appetite suppressant to be able to actively distinguish between “good” and “bad” foods. I’d really be interested in the research behind this claim. As for your call to research the ingredients and why they “work”, I’m sure many of us would like to do that. The problem is that Plexus has never shared any type of peer-reviewed clinical trials that show proven results. As it stands, all research outside of Plexus’ information shows that none of the ingredients contribute to weight loss. Finally, as to your claim that Plexus isn’t a diet, just look at their description on their website:
      “Having trouble losing weight and keeping it off? You’re not alone. But don’t worry! Finally there is an all-natural, healthy solution to help you lose weight for the long term.” That sounds an awful lot like a diet to most people.

  46. 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!

  47. 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!

    1. 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.

    2. 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.

    3. 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?

    4. 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.

    5. Magnesium citrate is also use to flush your colon out for an colonoscopy… It says do not use all the time. Like most laxatives. That it’s bad for you. I’ve lost almost 50 lbs 6 month. just by cutting pop out and keeping a journal of food intake. And exercise and keeping an appointment monthly to keep me on right track. And that keeps me accountable just knowing I got someone help keep me in line. He’s not pushing me just that when I’m told looks great or this maybe the problem keeps me wanting to try and not give up. I’ve appreciated your comments. Not sure if this will post on comments where I’ve been reading or just on your comments. But wanted to try say plexus isn’t only way… I was going to do bariatric surgery the bypass. But I’ve been doing good on my own with just talking with doctor and put on Physical therapy for arthritis all over bad knee pain plus home exercise. I desided not to do surgery and do it the right way. Exercise and diet control. Again sorry if it went straight to your personal reply. 🙂

    6. And when you stop drinking the product, your weight will be back almost immediately.

  48. 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.

  49. 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.

    1. 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.

    2. 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.

    3. 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.

    4. It has nothing to do with political leanings and everything to do with the very cult-like mentality of most, if not all, MLM’s. I once pointed out to a casual acquaintance that the insurance company she was working for was essentially a pyramid scheme, and she unfriended me on Facebook immediately, most likely because I was being “negative” toward her new business venture. She’s probably a liberal, but then again, I consider myself fairly liberal as well on a lot of topics. Intelligence level, susceptibility to scams, and political leanings are often all independent of one another. I would definitely take it as an insult if someone blamed this on “liberalism.”

    5. 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.

      To be involved in MLM, you have to be prepared to sacrifice your money, your relationships, and your family. A cult atmosphere should come to mind. Sorry for your lost, but when your daughter realizes the people around her are only interested in emptying her pocketbook, she’ll be back.

    7. Diane, you are absolutely right about your daughter. Plexus is a MLM business which by definition makes it a pyramid. I know of many folks that have been deceived by this product and it looks like they went to a buffet than have lost any weight. Losing weight is never easy and to think any diet supplement can do it is simply foolish. The weight loss that most people experience while on supplements such as Plexis can be attributed to their own intake of calories but when one has wasted their money they make themselves believe it is the product. People hate to admit they made a wrong decision. As far as the Ambassadors all they are about is making money and you can clearly tell by the posts who the Ambassadors really are, they are the ones raving about how effective a drink supplement is when healthy eating and exercise is the answer

  50. 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.

    1. 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.

    2. Mike

      You need to be corrected on a couple of issues in your post.
      Mike, MLM USED to be a viable way to get product out to areas, and to people that normally would not have access to them. People were paid a small commission in your organization, but the MAIN focus was always on the PRODUCT, not recruiting as it is today. That my friend is the first red-flag recognizing a “pyramid scheme”.

      Give up unhealthy foods in order to afford PS? Guess what, if you eat healthy, you will most probably control your weight without PS or any other weight-loss supplement. That statement is nothing but what you are hearing from the rah-rah people you are listening too, and financially supporting. Seems like to me you are “easy pickens”.

      What is wrong with having a regular job? Just some more MLM BS you are buying into. Here’s the difference. At least with a real job, you are guaranteed a paycheck each week, even though it may be minimal wage. Not the case with MLM. As a matter of fact, and based on available data, 99% of people involved in MLM lose money after expenses are deducted. To go farther, 83% of MLMers never get a check at all.

      Mike, you need a “bridge”? I got one for sale. lol Mike you have bought into a load of crap.

      Goo luck!

    3. lemmings…hmmmm….yes, research scientists, doctors, teachers, artists,plumbers, etc…we’re all lemmings….and contribute nothing to society. Of course you studied the Plexus ingredients and have produced this miracle product all by yourself…you are a genius.

  51. 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. =)

    1. 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….

    2. Right out of the Plexus playbook….I didn’t know Plexus made one “weightless”! Now that would be a BONUS…it must counter Earth’s gravitational field…wow.

    3. Randy,
      Plexus (at one point or another) has miraculously cured every ailment known to mankind (according to Facebook). I don’t know why President Obama hasn’t become an ambassador himself and used it to stop the spread of Ebola.

    4. I live in England can I order plexus slim here. I got my first month but have been told that it isn’t being delivered here any more. Are there any ambassadors in England.


  52. 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 🙂

    1. 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.

    2. My 47-year-old best friend is a brand new “Ambassador” and when I laughed about this bullshit product, she got ANGRY. Why? Seems, bottom line, this is her new money-making adventure. She looks ridiculous holding her “Pink drink” in almost every photo she takes. She has even gone as far to post that there are medical professionals and doctors who are Ambassadors for Plexus. ARE YOU SERIOUS? You mock, with Plexus, the God given ability to show up with willpower, eat correctly, stop filling your body with fast food, pop, alcohol; drink water, eat clean. take care of the ONLY BODY you have!! I am not a very good best friend, because I have lost all respect for the Plexus Robot that replaced Stacy.

    3. Obviously, Plexus doesn’t improve spelling. And most of the ambassadors do NOT have a science background and have no academic idea about the physiology of the human body, or what comprises a VALID scientific study with peer review. My niece sells this crap. She is enamored with the company. Plexus gives expense-paid vacations (with required rallies/seminars of course) to Dallas, Orlando, its top ambassadors to cheerlead them on to higher sales. The conventions are used to train ambassadors on what to say, how to sell. I hear the claims of my niece, and other ambassadors…they are parroting what Plexus and others have told them, or are reiterating testimonials from other users. I am always holding her feet to the fire about her claims. She states “Plexus is a Fortune 500 company…do you think they would allow a Multi-level marketing company into the Fortune 500 if it wasn’t a solid company?”

      I said yeah, well…Goldman-Sachs, Merrill Lynch, Chase-Manhattan, Bank of America, etc. are also Fortune 500 companies, and we know how ethical they were and are.

      If you are ignorant about these claims, it is easy to separate you from the money in your wallet. Americans stereotypically want a pill or drink to get rid of fat that has accumulated due to laziness and poor nutritional choices (leaving out, of course, those with inherited genetic components which cause one to hold onto fat, or have a different disease that is screwing up metabolism).

      For most, drinking the water, cutting out the junk food, portion control, and exercise are key…no other drinks, pink or otherwise are needed. If you feel paying around $114/month for a questionable appetite suppressant will cause you to become more disciplined in what goes through your buccal cavity, to rationalize exercising etc because of the expense, then go for it. Just know that for almost everyone, it’s not REALLY the pink drink doing it…it’s the other life choices that are doing the trick…I’m sure the ambassadors are financially happy to take your money… snake oil is still obviously on the market.

    4. Best all-around summary of this type of thing (both the MLM’s in general, and this product in particular) ever. I guess I don’t need to add my two cents.

  53. 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.

    1. 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.

    2. Whoa–that is SO true! The ambassador in the McKinney Tx area will go after you in a second if you don’t fall in line with what she tells you to do. She is your boss at the top of the food chain and don’t you dare forget it! She’s making a ridiculous amount of money because we suckers boosted her to the top and now we are nothing more than people to be told exactly what to think, how to post about the product incessantly, and give all the credit for any success you have directly to her. Not a fan of the system.

  54. 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!

    1. 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!!

    2. Kel…..considering that you are dieting and exercising…. There may be something else going on in your body. I recommend researching Candida. Plexus is known for the Slim/Accelerator….Which are great products, however, the health (&weight loss) benefits of our ProBio5/BioCleanse combo are really great for anyone who does the right things(diet & exercise) but may have a yeast overgrowth in their body, which prevents weight loss and can cause many other symptoms (such as asthma, fibromyalgia, headaches, eczema, and infections).

  55. 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!

    1. 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.

    2. 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.

    3. I agree I have fought an eating disorder since I was a teenager I am now 32. I have been broke so I havnt had any in almost a week and I picked up a candy bar n coke. I trashed it after one bite and sip.

  56. 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!

    1. 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!

    2. I am on Plexus Slim and I love it! I was the same way before trying it, I ate so horribly, drank soda’s non stop. I really thought I was on the verge of sugar overload and burning myself out and crashing. No energy and absolutely no willpower over food. To look at me at first glance you would say I should not even be on Plexus Slim. I don’t look like I eat as awful as I once did. I tried it the first time initially because I suffer from chronic pain and nothing I have ever done has helped. When I heard the different side effects of PS, it was worth it to me to try it. After two weeks, yes things in my life changed, but they would not have changed had I not joined the Plexus family.
      Yes, I am an Ambassador, I chose to be one because of my personal results. I still have a hard time drinking 8 glasses of water a day as I never used to drink water in the past, but now soda and fast food and garbage food in general, tastes awful to me now. I still sip on soda every now and again, and I have of course “fallen off the wagon” and ate garbage food out of sheer habit, but after one taste of my old food choices and I am good, I don’t want anymore.
      It kinda goes without saying that if you do not change your diet, you won’t see much of a change. That a lot of people don’t listen to their bodies and continue to do the same as they have always done with little results to show. If you listen to the signals your body is giving you, that is what helps you to make the changes needed. Personally, I do not lose weight simply because I don’t drink soda. I know plenty of people who cut it out and it didn’t change their weight either.
      The cravings were a constant nag and downfall for me, sugar sugar sugar, junk, junk, junk and occasionally a salad or juice, I was horrible and those horrible foods cost money too! Now, a little further along in my Plexus journey, I crave non of those foods anymore, I want healthy foods, I want water, I want to be more active and I am getting better sleep!
      Say what you will about the price but everything costs and if my pink drink is what helps me gage myself and help me along with my choices, it is worth it to me.
      I tell anyone the only way they will know how Plexus will work for them is to try it! I also tell people I do not take the accelerator because I do not believe in pills to lose weight. There is also ingredients in the pills that are not in the drink, such as caffiene, so anyone taking it and finding they have a burn out or crashing, this is most likely why….
      I am as honest as I can be with potential customers and always give my experience with the product to others as the example, not the Testimonials on the site. Since taking Plexus Slim the following changes have occurred….NO binge eating, no cravings, I don’t like soda or fast food crap, I drink water willingly way more than ever in my life, my chronic pain has subsided considerably to almost none and because I feel more energized and clear headed, I have found a new love in working out!
      I never thought I would ever see the inside of a gym again with all the pain I suffered. I am a new me and I personally give Plexus Slim most of the credit, afterall I still had to be the one to listen to my body and understand the changes and be willing to make the changes my body needed and wanted!
      If you find Plexus has worked for you and that you no longer need the product, I tell my customers that they can always cancel if they don’t want it anymore…..:)

    3. Terribly scripted response that has been repeated on other message boards. Way to take something like willpower and instead say that it’s this magical Plexus drink that will help you lose weight without getting off of your butt. You’re just substituting one thing for another and claiming that all your benefits are because of Plexus (rather than the fact that you’re not addicted to the caffeine and other chemicals and sweeteners in Diet sodas that were probably responsible for your weight gain and lack of energy.)

  57. 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”

  58. 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.

    1. 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

  59. 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.

    1. 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!

  60. 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.

  61. 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.

  62. 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”.

  63. 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.

    1. 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!

    2. I am a Plexus Ambassador and not afraid to begin my post by stating that. Its true that not drinking pop and not snacking are dietary changes. However, I would like to point out something that anyone who has been overweight should understand, especially people with diabetes. Cravings for sugar and breads, are the most difficult to overcome on your own! Plexus helps change your cravings naturally without you feeling as though you are being deprived of something you want. That’s why it doesn’t feel like you’re on a diet….there for, most customers and ambassadors say they have not changed their diet or exercise…..because they don’t feel like they did….it just happened because the products work from the inside to change the cravings. I really hope this information helps.

    3. I have been on plexus since September 8 months and not lost any weight what so ever I keep taking it hoping something will happen have taken excelarater and bioclense and probio 5 so tried a lot

  64. 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.

    1. Coming from someone straight from the (extremely biased) source. Obviously a fake commenter.

    2. BULLCRAP! I was diagnosed with Type 2 about a year ago. I have changed my diet and have EASILY been able to curb any “craving” for sugars 7 bread.

      I eat lots of fruits & veggies and smart portion of meat and stay away from the carbs. I exercise lightly. To date I have lost OVER 15 pounds!! And have NOT used any diet crap, including Plexus!

    3. I recently started taking Plexus and I have completely given up sweets and sodas. I havn’t lost alot of weight but my big fat stomache is finally getting hard.

    4. So are you claiming that Plexus somehow causes muscles to tone themselves? Randy Borden, pay attention here. Add this to the list of claims from Plexus folks.

    5. If you have a lot of weight to lose the rep recommends 2 packets of the ‘pink drink’ a day and 4 Accelerators a day. That mean you need to purchase 2 Plexus Slim + Accelerator combos a month plus the Pro Bio 5 and the Biocleanse. That is almost $300 a month. That is way more than a cup of coffee per day unless you are buying $10 coffees. This is a VERY expensive product that honestly does not work for a lot of people.

    6. Tons of side effects!!! I had them all it was awful! They say no caffeine or stimulants that’s a lie. I had elevated heart rate, lightheaded, increased blood pressure, headache like I have never had before, felt like I was dying! Horrible experience.

  65. 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.

    1. 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.

    2. 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!!!

    3. 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.

    4. 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.

      You are exactly right. The so-called study which should not even be talked about because the ingredients have changed, is a sorry excuse for a study. Being in the pharmaceutical arena in the past, you show this to any healthcare provider, including weight-loss experts like yourself, and they would find it amusing.

    6. Funny you are telling someone to do their research and you claim extensive research, but what does that mean? Extensive research is normally followed by, well, results of said research and footnotes backing up that information. You sound like a spoon-fed rep, sorry. I have actually read several articles stating you should not take this product unless you need to lose weight and it is not recommended for people with a BMI of 18.5 or lower. That is stated by this company! So, how is it that you say it is okay even if you do not need to lose weight? Debunked.

    7. I am researching Plexus as I am a midwife and my clients are wanting to take it. My primary concern is appetite supressent which is extremly problomatic for pregnant and breastfeeding women. I am also very interested in this quote: “I have actually read several articles stating you should not take this product unless you need to lose weight and it is not recommended for people with a BMI of 18.5 or lower. That is stated by this company!” Can you reference this on the company’s website because I am having a hard time finding it. Many Ambassadors claim that this product is not just for weight loss and I have friends taking it that absolutely don’t need to loose weight and who are in fact breastfeeding. Really searching for truth surrounding this product. I am not going to try it nor will I ever encourage it to my clients but I need to figure out whether I should actively recommend against it for pregnant and breastfeeding mothers.

    8. 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?

    9. I tired Plexus the pink drink, it tastes very good, but did not suppress my appetite, and having PLD certain things will cause me to have internal pain and this did so I immediately quit taking it. it may work for some but it wasn’t for me.

    10. I too am having problems. Swelling in my legs and now difficult to walk on right foot due to severe swelling and tenderness when touched. I was told by a sales rep that if I do not drink a LARGE amount of water the slim drink will cause damage to my kidneys. I wish I would of caught on then. Been drinking it and taking the ProBio 5 along with the Pro Cleanse since June 2014. My friend is a Chemical Engineer for the oil fields and looked it up. Suggested that I stop taking it for a month to see what happens. It will take at least one week to get it out of my system. I am taking this very seriously as for I have missed two days of work and possible more because I can not stand or walk. I can’t get over how I fell for this stuff. The percentage of this happening may be 4 out of 10, I may just be in that 4 category. I do not feel like my cravings have subsided any, just my own self control that is keeping my cravings down. The money I have spent on this product could of been spent at the gym, where I should of gone in the first place.

    11. Lifestyle Chang is what makes the difference in weight loss not Plexus. When starting any diest exercise and less bad food go with it. Guess which one is really working. I challenge who’s to sit on your but eat wrong and drink pink. I gaurantee the pounds come back.

    12. I had a stroke shortly after starting to take Plexus. Not sure if there is a connection or not wondering if anyone else had a similar experience.

    13. I have now read several testimonies about strokes while taking the Plexus products. 🙁 I am really concerned about this product. I am a midwife and I have very good friends and clients taking it and widely advertising it as safe for all even during pregnancy and breastfeeding.
