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.

23 Comments on My Plexus Review ~ An Honest Look!

  1. Just curious… if slim made you crash after you weren’t on it… isn’t it addictive then? If your body can’t deal with out it… idk

    • I don’t think it’s addictive, I just think I didn’t realize how much I needed help with my blood sugar. Every pregnancy my midwife is always telling me my low blood sugar levels contribute to a lot of my health problems, so I think the week off of Slim just showed me how much it was actually helping.

  2. Isn’t Plexus like weight loss pills? Doesn’t it contain green coffee bean extract (high in caffeine) and garcinia cambogia? I’m afraid of these ingredients especially while nursing… And I try to stay far away from weight loss type ingredients.

    • Yes it does contain those ingredients, but that they are blood sugar balancing ingredients, not just “weight loss ingredients”. One of the common benefits of balanced blood sugar is weight loss and that is what a lot of people are looking for, but there are many, many, MANY more benefits than that!

      I don’t drink coffee (I never have) and I don’t drink pop with caffeine, so I would be very sensitive to it and feel that caffeine high if it was in there. Out of 530 mg blend, there is less than 2% naturally occurring caffeine in it. The equivalent of caffeine would be like taking a cup of coffee, pouring it into a gallon of water and taking out a tablespoon of that.

      I hope that helps!

  3. How many bio cleanse do you take at night? Bio cleanse makes me kind of sick if I take more than 2. And how many probio5? Thanks 🙂

    • I take 2 Bio Cleanse at night, along with 2 ProBio5. I hope that helps! So far I haven’t noticed any nausea from either supplement.

  4. I have mthfr as well. Wouldn’t that make it not safe to do the drink and tri pack because they have folic acid vs folate in its natural form?

      • Do you still suggest taking xfactor for MTHFR? Are there any other vitamins you add to this for it? Like magnesium or omega3? Just found out I have this, don’t know where to start but wanting to feel better soon!

      • Why did you stop the pink drink recently and did you have any side effects like the first time you stopped? I’m just trying it out for the first time and I’m not convinced it’s doing anything, and I’m thinking probiotics is all I need

        • I decided the exact same thing. I realized the probiotics and magnesium I was taking from their brand was amazing and what was really helping me. I still take those supplements, but not the pink drink.

          • What product is the magnesium in? I take the Probiotic and the MegaX vitamin but I don’t think the magnesium is in that.

        • So you don’t take the pink drink anymore? You just do bio cleanse and pro biotic? I just take the pink drink it’s doing nothing and it made me gain weight lol.

      • None of the Triplex products have folic acid in them 🙂 I have the MTHFR gene mutation as well. I take the Triplex, the vitalbiome and the XfactorPlus (which has folate in it, not folic acid). I’m very careful not to consume products with Folic Acid as I’m very sensitive to it.

        • Hello, curious on why you quit drinking Slim? I’m thinking of quitting myself. I do like the other products. I’m just not convinced it’s doing anything.

          • That’s exactly why I stopped. I realized it just wasn’t working, what was helping was the probiotic and the magnesium. I ended up feeling like it wasn’t worth the cost and stopped everything.

  5. I recently in the last 2 weeks started Plexus I got the tri something with the pink drink, biocleanse and probio. I was told she could adjust my regime if I didn’t feel like I was having enough die off or detox do you know how I’m supposed to be looking for? I’m doing this to feel better weight loss would be great but I’m more concerned with feeling better I suffer from end stage Hashimotos and severe hypothyroidism my Dr has never seen anyone with a TSH of 315.9 thanks in advance
