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.

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.

  1. Notforme says:

    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…

  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.
