    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?

    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.

    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.

    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.

      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!

    2. Keith says:

      Michael. You get it, I get it but some people will keep drinking the ‘Kool-Aid’ until the well is dry.

    3. Michael says:

      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.

    4. Jennifer says:

      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.

    5. Randy Borden says:

      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…


      1. Randy Borden says:


    6. Rebecca says:

      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. Randy Borden says:

        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.

        1. Michael says:

          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.

          1. Randy Borden says:

            There’s no scientific studies for the validity of religious claims (any religion) either.

            1. Michael says:

              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.

      2. Tami says:

        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.

    7. Sunshine S says:

      Please update. Slim no longer has hoodia in it

    8. Deb Gomez says:

      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. Michael says:


        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.

    9. stephanie miller says:

      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. Michael says:

        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.

    10. Wendy says:

      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!

    11. Kyla says:

      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!

    12. Michael says:

      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.

    13. Quana says:

      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. stephanie miller says:

        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.

        1. Michael says:

          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.

    14. Anonymous says:

      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!

    15. Joe klein says:

      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. Michael says:

        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.

    16. Joy says:

      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.

    17. Mike says:

      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. Michael says:


        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.

        1. Jenny Dyl says:

          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.

          1. M.Mann says:

            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.

    18. Sue says:

      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.

    19. Anonymous says:


      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.

    20. J says:

      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. Ellen Fuller says:

        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.

        1. Michael says:

          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

        2. J says:

          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.

    21. Cindy Boyd says:

      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. Michael says:


        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?

        1. Ellen Fuller says:

          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.”

          1. Michael says:


            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: https://www.tga.gov.au/alert/plexus-slim-accelerator-capsules-and-plexus-slim-accelerator-3-day-trial-pack

            The FDA letter was something completely separate from DMAA being banned and their rush to reformulate. Let’s review those items, shall we? – http://www.fda.gov/ICECI/EnforcementActions/WarningLetters/2014/ucm411287.htm
            “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.

    22. Stephen says:

      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.

    23. None of your business says:

      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. Michael says:

        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. Hmmm.... says:

        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.

        1. Michael says:

          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.

    24. Susanne Jeppesen says:

      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.

    25. Kim says:

      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. Michael says:

        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”.

        1. Susanne Jeppesen says:

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

          1. Michael says:

            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.

        2. Cindy Boyd says:

          They say talcum powder caused my ovarian cancer. So what’s a person to do

          1. Michael says:

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

            1. Ellen Fuller says:

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

      2. Nancy Chase says:

        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.

    26. Elizabeth says:

      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. Tami says:

        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. Cheyenne says:

        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.

    27. Brook Ann says:

      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. Michael says:

        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. Lynn says:

        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?

    28. Christy says:

      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. Haitam says:

        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.

    29. Stephanie says:

      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.
