I was looking for a Plexus support group and found this first.
1. The color pink in slim comes from plant extracts. It is sweetened with stevia, the natural flavoring a are monk fruit, blueberry and mulberry. It is gluten free. It has a natural anti-inflammatory, balances blood sugars and lipids, has helped many diabetics and pre-diabetics, be able to get off their meds, and so much more. As for me, I had stroke level high blood pressures that had me in the doctors offices every month for 2 years. I had a huge ziplock bag of useless medications that gave me horrible side effects. I had gotten to the point of believing I was dying when I found Plexus. I was a skeptic but took the chance on the 60-day money back guarantee. Within 2 WEEKS my blood pressure dropped to levels that I had to reduce my prescription meds. In the last 6 months I have been able to completely drop 2 high blood pressure meds and cut my metoprolol from 200mg a day to 100mg a day. Some days, I don't take it at all. For instance yesterday my bp was 96/72!! Yea! No meds! I am also free of the hereditary neuropathy pain in my legs due to the Plexus Nerve Support and Ease Capsules!! My gut health is back to normal because the Plexus ProBio5 and bioCleanse took care of that, resulting in NO MORE gluten or peanut intolerances and no more joint pain. I no longer need sleeping pills because I sleep soundly and all night without waking up. My hair and nails are strong and growing long. I could go on and on with my plusses from Plexus use. That is why I came here looking for a Plexus team!
This is not a scam people. This is the real deal It really is a shame that people will flippantly call a product a scam without having any real knowledge of a product. No research--just judgments based on nothing but their own opinions and fears. Plexus is not a quick weight loss scheme. It is a health and wellness company with 1000's of real people with real testimonies. Getting rid of candida overgrowth can take many weeks or months. That is the reason for their generous 60 day money back guarantee. That's really more than I ever intended to say here but I really hope anyone coming here for real answers will get the truth and not just unfounded rumors or false judgments. Listen to the people who have used the products for at least 60 days. Go to the Facebook group "Thinking Pink" and hear what real people are saying. I hope you have a healthy life! I love SparkPeople and I love my Plexus!
And yes...I became an Ambassador after my 3rd month as a customer TO GET THE WHOLESALE PRICE. When you see a mighty good thing that has changed your life, and you know you are a lifer, you want the lowest possible price :-) and PS...I haven't had to see a doctor for high blood pressure for 6 months!! Thank GOD for that and thank you Plexus.

I really liked the taste but it didn't do anything for me. I don't think it drank it long enough to notice any difference.

Many have never heard of the importance of an alkaline body. Cancer cannot live in one. It is very important!!

I love Plexus Slim! Not for the weightloss, but it has helped with my depression and anxiety. To all who love to just say bad things about something before doing their research or actually having an accurate knowledge of something, I really feel sorry for you! I personally have close friends with severe health issues that by taking not only the Slim, but the other Supplements, have totally changed their lives. We're talking Lupus, IBS, bladder issues, skin issues, diabetes, and the list goes on. Definitely not a SCAM! And the Company is definitely here to stay. Being healthy is important, and doing things naturally is also key. Many can reach their weightloss goals just by counting calories and exercising. Are they getting all they need nutritionally?...not necessarily. That is a fact! With the way food is grown and processed we are not getting all we need. Our gut health is way out of wack and in fact killing us! All I can say is do your research, look up gut health, leaky gut, Candida and see how these are affecting most of us. Plexus has an amazing Probiotic that is actually Anti-fungal and gets Candida under control. Candida is not something to just blow off let me tell you! I have suffered from an overgrowth for years and I know of someone who lost their brother as a young adult from complications of fungus. Plexus has a vitamin that has 2 forms of aloe that help you absorb over 300% of the vitamins and nutrients. My hair is growing like a weed and is so much healthier! Also just a little side note, Scams don't work, usually die within the first year or two, and don't pay 11 different ways! Plexus is #8 on the Inc. 5,000 list of fastest growing privately owned business and about to be a billion dollar company!! I just won an iPad Air and laptop case from the company for sharing and caring:) Such a scam lol

I have a hard time believing that anything that is such a delightful shade of pink is all natural.

A properly alkalized body?

Um-kay. Didn't know that I needed to be...alkalized.

My feeling is that if you have been using something for years and you are still 100+ pounds overweight, then it might not be working.

I considered this a scam as well, until people I know personally had health success with these products. A lot of what people are talking about is just the Plexus Slim drink, aka "the pink drink", but the company also has a very good multi-vitamin, probiotic (and I'm a snob about my probiotics), biocleanse that helps alkalize the body and fast relief cream that is definitely NOT a scam (the only thing that has helped me with pain from a heel injury). There is not one thing that works for every individual body. What works for me may not work for the next person. Yes, the initial cost may seem expensive, especially since everyone's budget is getting tighter and tighter. But, the people I know who take these products have been able to reduce or get completely off their arthritis meds, their IBS meds, their anxiety/depression meds, and they haven't been sick with a cold or the flu or anything else going around. If you added up everything you spend between co-pays, doctor bills and medications, for me, these products are cheaper. It's not just about the Slim and it's not about who's selling it. It's overall wellness. If you get that in other ways, that's great! But for some of us, we've looked at the ingredient list, we've done our homework (years worth of studying nutrition and the body in my case), and we decided to give these products a shot because they're well made. (Yes, there are two articles going around about the Accelerator product being banned in Canada and Australia. This is because the Accelerator product contained geranium. Canada and Australia have banned a substance called DMMA which is structurally similar to geranium. When the substance got banned, even though it is not in the Accelerator product, the Accelerator was pulled and reformulated to leave out the geranium. So, it is no longer banned in those countries.) For me, if I don't lose an inch or a pound, but gain good intestinal health and a properly alkalized body, I consider that worth the cost.

I don't have the power to delete a post. I am not a Community Leader. The other post was deleted by Spark People. Not necessarily because she had posted her link, but because she was calling others posters names.

I've been on it for 3 months. The first two months I did great. This month it hasn't done a thing for me. I canceled my subscription to it. It is very expensive.

delete this post if you like. that is fine. I found this while doing a search to find other plexus users for support. I will say up front, I do sell it to help with the cost. That said, I am not even going to post my link. I don't want your sale. I want you to know what it has done for me.

It is an all natural product. It has helped immensely in so many ways. The biggest change I have noticed is it has stopped my carb cravings. I actually crave good things like water. Before, I craved steaks ALL the time. I haven't had a craving for steaks since I started and haven't ordered once. I have been ordering fish, chicken, salads, and soups when I am out to eat. That is something I never did before. In my first month I am down 15 lbs.

The only diet I ever had luck with before was the HCG diet. When I went on it, I craved carbs and had HORRIBLE mood swings. It was so awful. I didn't stabilize at the end of it and gained it all back.

I don't have those mood swings on plexus slim. I don't feel the need to strangle hubby if he wants a large fry. I get my ice water and salad or fruit and I'm happy.

If you are truly interested, find a plexus rep and try the 3 or 7 day trial and see what it does. There are many groups on facebook with testimonies. I have my 10 yr old on it with his Drs approval for overall health reasons. The drink isn't only for losing weight.

I wish you all the best in this journey to better health! :)

"I opened the link in her signature. The posters that posts disappeared is a distributor for Plexus Slim "

I guess I missed the posts :(

lol can spot those people a mile away on here.

People, please, please...there is no miracle diet pill. Sorry. It's reality. Please do not waste your money, ok?

I haven't tried it but a friend of mine has & she has lost weight. She did state that it is expensive & she's only using it as a boost to start her weight lost. She's considering having one of those weight loss surgeries but wanted to try a non-surgery method first.

Other people ARE getting paid for posting about it. You're doing it for free? Maybe you shouldn't be calling anyone else stupid.

There's an entire industry of people getting paid to post comments. ;) You can find them on freelancing websites.

Robertagann, if you have medical conditions and take prescriptions. You should check with your doctor before taking any supplements.

Some of these supplements can be contraindicative to prescriptions. Google all the ingredients.

There was a famous line in "Gone with the Wind" that went something like this: "Frankly, my dear, I don't give a scam!"

And Plexus Slim sounds like yet another one to come down the pike emoticon

Yes, these scammers come on these kind of boards often, and on the boards of women's magazines, because women are their main target, falling often for these schemes. They get paid for each post they make.

It's a well know scam and pyramid scheme. People frequently start accounts here on SparkPeople just so they can post a "question" where they say, "I hear so many people talking about this product! Can it really be as wonderful as they say?"

Scam, scam, scam.

No. What is it. I'll check it out. If its a weight loss supplement I steer clear of those.
