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 lack 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: https://www.dietpillswatchdog.com/plexus-worldwide-diet-investigation/

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.

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: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2943088/
  • 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: http://umm.edu/health/medical/alphalipoic-acid

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.

Caution:
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.

  1. Plexus says:

    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. Michael says:

      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. Emily says:

    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).

  3. jj says:

    You aren’t concerned about the lead? Or all the unsuspecting ignorant innocent people it can harm?

    1. Debbie says:

      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.

  4. Jim M says:

    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.

    Jim

    1. Michael says:

      http://www.wfaa.com/features/what-is-plexus-/143077180

      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.

      1. Amanda says:

        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. http://plexuslearningcenter.com/plexus-welcomes-dr-alan-jiang/

        1. Michael says:

          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”.

      2. Debbie says:

        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.

        1. Michael says:

          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.

  5. Michael says:

    Plexus has lead in their products – read here:

    h/t to Pink Drink Scam Alert blog for this info.

  6. Michael says:

    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.

  7. Rhonda says:

    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.

    i am taking medecation can i take plexus

    1. Debbie says:

      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.

  9. Jim says:

    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. Michael says:

      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.

  10. TheGal says:

    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’.

  11. Jim says:

    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 12/16/2015 has been refunded, $223.06.

  12. Marie says:

    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.
