I’ll be the first to admit that I thought there was no way this supplement could actually be good for you. This was my opinion BEFORE I researched the ingredients in Plexus Slim. I figured there were all sorts of nasty chemicals that made it harmful to a person’s health.
Previously I discussed why I started taking Plexus Slim, but today I’m going to give you the ingredient information I promised.
So what are the ingredients in the powdered drink? Here is the list of the chemical names for the plant extracts as well as the benefits of each one.
Chlorogenic Acid (Green Coffee Bean Extract)
Dr. Oz recommends chlorogenic acid, this from his , “Chlorogenic acid slows absorption of fat from food intake and also activates metabolism of extra fat.” Chlorogenic Acid is found in bamboo, prunes, peaches and other plants; known to aid in lowering blood pressure; may have antioxidant effects; can be used to reduce bitterness in food. Proprietary blend of Chlorogenic Acid from Caffea Arabica contains less than 2% natural caffeine.
Citrin K (Garcinia Cambogia)
This is another ingredient that Dr Oz discussed in the past. It is found in a plant grown in Indonesia. It can act as an appetite suppressant, may improve mood, aid in sleep, and help with emotional eating. Garcinia Cambogia also helps to block fat absorption. Not all Citrin K is equal in quality so be aware of that.
Alpha Lipoic Acid
Found naturally in the human body and can be found in certain foods such as spinach and rice bran. It is a powerful antioxidant! Alpha Lipoic Acid may aid in blood sugar control. It may also help with brain function and age related conditions. Here is what WebMD has to say about it. Mercola has an excellent article that explains the importance of ALA, (and mentions these conditions it helps with: Lupus, Rheumatoid arthritis, Dermatomyositis (an inflammatory muscle diseases, & Autoimmune diseases)
Chromium (Amino Nicotinate GTF)
Chromium GTF is a metal. It is known as an essential trace element. Chromium GTF is used for blood sugar control for people with Types 1 and 2 diabetes, pre-diabetes, and high blood sugar due to steroids. It is also used for depression, lowering bad cholesterol, and raising good cholesterol; aids in weight loss, fat loss, and muscle gain; improves athletic performance and increases energy. Web MD has lots to say about the benefits of Chromium.
A form of soluble fiber that can take the place of sugar in beverages. It can be used as a thickening agent and stabilizer. The polydextrose used in Slim is derived from rice and not corn.
A weak organic acid that acts as a natural preservative.
Beet Root Extract
Used for coloring.
Stevia Leaf Extract & Lo Han Fruit Extract
Both are all-natural sweeteners that do not spike blood sugar when eaten.
Other Positives with the Ingredients
Plexus Slim does not contain MSG or other proven red-flag ingredients. Although some manufacturers play label games to hide MSG and other controversial ingredients, all the chemical names used in labeling Plexus Slim are the chemical break downs of the various plant extracts used. No MSG, no artificial, no synthetics.
Plexus Slim is also gluten-free and Vegan and Vegetarian friendly.
You can order all these supplements above and take them individually. That’ll cost you a pretty penny but you can do it. Also you’d need to make sure you were buying quality and your dosage would be something you’d need to figure out and watch. That is why I love how simple and effective this all-in-one supplement.
Just this past Saturday, I listened to a woman explain how she had gotten off of 8 of her medications since starting Slim early 2013! That’s health friends, the weight loss is a by-product!
SIDE NOTE: As I stated before, I am now an Independent Ambassador for Plexus. I never intended to sell ANY MLM products, I just wanted to feel better. After I started feeling better and heard from others who had major improvement in health, I whole-heartily started recommending them. I wish everyone who feels like crud would take it. I also wish I could give Plexus to all my family and friends.
If you know someone who sells Plexus and you’re interested in trying it, please contact them! If you don’t know anyone, I’d be happy to help you.
