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 love my plexus slim, I also take bio cleans so far losing weight and feeling great.I have taking adipex for years and as soon as I stop taking it I always felt bad and gained it back but with plexus I stopped for a couple weeks just to see what would happen and I feel same. 11 lbs gone and its been best thing ever. I dont have to kill myself starving I drink more water and it has helped me balance with my other medical problems as well. recommended to everyone.

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.

Dances: salsa (standard/LA), casino, rueda de casino, cumbia Colombiana, bachata, mambo, cha-cha-chá, merengue, reggaetón.

Currently learning: Mexican cumbia, danzón, Cuban rumba

Dances to Learn in the future: flamenco, tango Argentino, samba, belly dancing, bhangra, ballroom rumba

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'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 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.

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.

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?"
