My Plexus Review ~ An Honest Look!

An honest look at Plexus and how it is helping me!

If you had told me I’d be writing a post telling you all how much I love Plexus six months ago, I would have laughed in your face.

Seriously.

I’m very, very careful and skeptical about what health products I take. I love natural products and always reach for them first, but I also don’t believe all the claims out there. The only reason I even looked into Plexus is because I first heard about it from Shoshanna, the owner of The Bulk Herb Store who I really respect when it comes to herbs. I couldn’t believe that she was raving about these products, but I was still skeptical.

Plexus is a company that advertises the famous Slim, (the pink drink) as well as other products and when you first look at the company you think it’s all about weight loss. It’s actually so much more than that. One reason you can have trouble losing weight is if your blood sugar is not balanced. Plexus offers products that can help balance your blood sugar, which then might lead to weight loss. I don’t take these products for weight loss, but for the health benefit of them.

I won’t complain if I happen to lose some baby weight though (I normally don’t lose my baby weight until I’m done breastfeeding, so I’m not expecting it to happen).

I briefly tried Plexus when I was pregnant, but I couldn’t tell any difference and stopped taking them. Honestly, nothing could have made me feel better during my last pregnancy, it was just a very difficult time and it wasn’t the best time to start new products.

After my sister told me that she had been trying Plexus (I about fell over on that one, if you think I’m skeptical you haven’t met my sister!), I decided to give it one last try. Thinking I was wasting my money, I ordered the Tri-Plex which contains the Slim drink, ProBio-5 and the Bio Cleanse.

After being on them 3 months now, I can tell a big difference in how I feel and plan on staying on these products! Even though I am up in the middle of the night nursing, I sleep much better in-between getting up to nurse, I have more energy, my blood sugar is staying balanced better, and some tummy problems are being helped tremendously. My naturally minded MD has even said these are good quality supplements, so I feel super knowing he approves!

I’ll share with you what my favorite products are.

The Slim Drink

Plexus slim can help lose weight, maintain healthy blood sugar levels and help you not be tired!

Known as the famous “pink drink,” this super yummy tasting drink contains no artificial flavors or sweeteners. Among other things, it contains Chromium which is really good for your blood sugar, and is sweetened with Stevia and gets its pink color from beets!

Plexus Slim - an honest review on what I think about Plexus and how it has helped me!

Blood sugar plays a crucial part in how we feel. It can dip high and low causing us to be tired, become irritable, shaky and crave food. I’ve had low blood sugar issues for years now. I took the Slim for 2 months and I could tell it had helped my blood sugar a little bit, but I wasn’t sure if it was dramatic or not. I decided to get off of it and see, and after being off it a week I had a horrible blood sugar crash. I was crying, shaking, and had to go to bed for the afternoon.  I ordered another 30 day supply that night to get back on it. :)

The Slim may help you:

  • With safe and effective weight control
  • Maintain healthy blood sugars
  • Maintain healthy blood pressure
  • Maintain healthy cholesterol and lipid levels

BioCleanse 

Bio Cleanse is a blend of Magnesium/ Bioflavonoid Complex.

No, this is not one of those harsh cleansing products that makes you fall into your bed feeling yucky. This is a blend of Magnesium/ Bioflavonoid Complex that might help with the following:

  • Oxygenates the entire body
  • Helps cleanse the gastro-intestinal tract
  • Helps energize the body
  • Supports collagen production
  • Relieves occasional constipation

I’ve found that if I take this at night before I go to bed, I sleep SO much better! Everyone is different, and others take it in the morning because it energizes them, so you just have to test it and see what you think. Since I’ve struggled with adrenal fatigue for years, one of the supplements always recommended is a good vitamin C. I’m thrilled this is in there.

ProBio 5

ProBio 5 is the best probiotic I've found!

I’ve taken several very good probiotics before, but I’ve never taken one where I received such dramatic results. Having had six babies (here is where we get a bit personal!) I knew my gut needed help with constipation and I’ve always known that creating a healthy gut is essential to your health. Within 2 weeks I had amazing results taking this Probiotic, and when I added the BioCleanse it just got even better. These are two products I plan on always taking, and the prices are very comparable, if not cheaper than other good quality probiotics.

XFactor

XFactor is a multivitamin that Plexus offers, and it works great for people who have the MRHFR mutation!

While this sounds like a television series, it’s actually the multivitamin they offer! :) I’ve never mentioned this on here before, but I found out this year that I have MTHFR (a gene mutation) and I can’t take regular multi-vitamins because I need a special kind of folic acid. I was thrilled that just last month Plexus changed the formula to make this safe for me to take!

What makes this different than other multivitamins is the never-before-seen formulation of a patented aloe blend and New Zealand Blackcurrant. This results in vastly improved absorption and assimilation for optimal nutrition.

MegaX

MegaX Omega Vitamin

Mega X is 100% plant based vitamin and has the complete omega’s in it. Plexus MegaX was created using AHIFLOWER® Oil, which contains the omega 3 stearidonic acid (SDA) which your body converts to EPA (the omega-3 fatty acid found in fish oil) at a rate of up to 4 times more efficiently than other plant-based oils which contain no SDA, such as flaxseed.

I just started taking this product so I can’t comment on it much, besides the fact that I’ve known I needed to be on a good Omega vitamin for awhile now. I like that you don’t get a fishy aftertaste!

After all that info, you might be wondering how to get these products to try for yourself! There are actually three options available.

Retail Customer – make a 1 time purchase and get a 60 day money back guarantee. You don’t have to return any products. You just call the company and tell them you don’t like it and they give you your money back.

Preferred Customer – You get a discount on the price and are signed up for a monthly autoship. Most products come in 1 month supply so you don’t have to think about reordering, and you get a discounted price. You still get the 60 day money back guarantee. There are no contracts. You can just order 1 month and cancel the autoship if needed.

Sign up for a wholesale ambassador account (I signed up for the wholesale account because that’s just how I shop with a large family!).  For $34.99 a year you get your products at a wholesale price, and even share your link with friends and earn money if they decide to purchase!  You don’t get the 60 day money back guarantee when you go this route because you are not only buying the products at a wholesale price, you are buying into a business if you want it. Some people only do this to get their products cheaper. Others want to share about it after they see how well it has helped them.

Please know, I’m not a doctor. I don’t intend to diagnose, cure, treat, or claim this will work for you. I’m just sharing what has helped me because I know so many of you have wanted an update on my health and what supplements I’m taking.

Best Year Ever Goal Planning Printables for evaluating how 2015 went, and what goals you want for 2016!

I love ending my year with taking a look back on the year and how it went, and also looking forward and setting some goals for the new year. It’s a healthy habit to get into, as long as you are careful to not discourage yourself by setting goals that are unreachable.

If you currently wake up at 8:00 AM every morning, don’t expect to start waking up at 5:00 AM beginning in January. Set realistic goals and work towards them!

This year I wanted to offer you all a free goal planning printable, and asked my husband to make a simple printable to offer. He went way above and beyond what I was expecting, and I think you all will love this amazing The Best Year Ever printable that he came up with!

Best Year Ever Goal Planning Printables for evaluating how 2015 went, and what goals you want for 2016!

The Best Year Ever has categories to fill in where from a scale of 1-10 you rate how well you think last year went, write down your goals for the coming year in each category and what number you hope to obtain with them this year. You can even include a specific word you want to focus on for each category!

Two After Christmas Sales You Might Need!

This post may contain Affiliate Links. Thank you for your support!

I hope everyone had an amazing Christmas! It was wonderful to spend the day unplugged. I felt bad that I never got a Christmas message out to all of you, or even got on Facebook to wish you all a Merry Christmas. The thought was there to do that, but the time just got away from me! We are enjoying time with family, and loving the time off of school. :)

Lilla Rose is having a one day after Christmas Sale! Save 10%-26% off everything, plus receive free shipping on orders of $26 or more!

Today only Lilla Rose is offering a after Christmas sale! I know many people receive money as a gift, so this might be the time to get that Flexi clip you have been wanting!

You can save 10%-26% off everything, plus receive free shipping on orders over $26! This normally always includes international shipping as well, which is an amazing offer! Hurry though, this sale is only on Saturday!

The other amazing sale that you will want to think about getting is the Make Over Your Mornings course. I don’t recommend many courses on the blog, just because there are so many of them out there now! I went through this course earlier this year (you can read a previous post I did on the Make Over Your Mornings course) and it was so inspiring.

I can’t say I have been able to put everything into practice, but that’s because I’ve been in survival mode with a fussy baby. She is slowly outgrowing the fussiness, so I’m hoping next year to implement more of what I learned. It was still so encouraging though, as I knew what I wanted my mornings to look like. A big weakness of mine is to stay up late, I love the quiet time after the children have gone to bed! It just doesn’t help a solid morning routine though. I am hoping to work on this in the new year.

You can get this course for just $9.00 here, and it’s worth every penny! It’s a 14 day online course that you can watch when you want, and comes with a workbook and lots of resources.
