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.

201 comments on “Plexus Slim”

  1. DONNA says:

    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

  2. Unbiased Contributor says:

    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. Michael says:

      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.

  3. sshrrr says:

    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!!!

  4. Elaine says:

    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.

  5. calmond says:

    Plexus is now sold in Canada.

  6. Brandi says:

    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. Michael says:

      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.

      1. JenW says:

        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.

        1. Michael says:

          “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. http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/259098.php
          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. http://nutrientjournal.com/higenamine-norcoclaurine-as-stimulant-and-fat-burner/
          “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) – https://www.caring4cancer.com/go/cancer/nutrition/questions

          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.

          1. rv says:

            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.

          2. Michael says:

            To rv:
            One of my links was from information released by the FDA. I guess that’s not legitimate enough for you. http://www.fda.gov/ForConsumers/ConsumerUpdates/ucm347270.htm
            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.

  7. Mel says:

    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. Michael says:

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

      1. Anonymous says:

        Great point Michael! lol

  8. j levert says:

    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.

  9. J Davis says:

    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. Michael says:

      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?

  10. Kim says:

    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. Michelekathleen says:

      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?

      1. Michael says:

        “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.

    2. Christopher McKay says:

      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.

      1. Michael says:

        “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.

  11. James K. says:

    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!

  12. Lori says:

    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. just me says:

      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.

      1. Michael says:

        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.

        1. Jackie says:

          How do you know?

          1. Michael says:

            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?

        2. James K. says:

          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.

        3. cynthia says:

          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. 🙂

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

  13. Bethanne says:

    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.

    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.

      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.

        It’s a cult….of ignorance.

    2. Lisa says:

      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.

      1. Michael says:

        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.

        1. Wanda Anderson says:

          This person from Tx wouldn’t happen to be named Joyce would she?

      2. Lisa G. says:

        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.”

    3. Shari W. says:

      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.

    5. Kenny says:

      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

  15. Mike says:

    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. Michael says:

      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.

      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!

      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.
