Plexus Slim Reviews: Side Effects, Ingredients & Much More

accelerator-plexus-slim

Do you want to know if Plexus Slim is something that you should take or avoid? Let’s find it out together, shall we?

According to the official website, Plexus Slim is an all natural weight loss drink that will “help you lose weight for the long term”.

This product will also “burn fat and not muscles and increase your willpower over food”. Another claim made by Plexus Slim is that it is helping regulating blood sugar.

Plexus Slim is also being sold together with a pill called Accelerator+. They also state that the combination of these two products will “ensure rapid weight loss”.

They promise a lot, but we will find out if one (or more) of these claims are true.

Let’s continue this review by getting to know the manufacturers.

 

What kind of company is behind this product?

Plexus Slim is being sold by Plexus Worldwide Inc. This company resides in Arizona and was founded in 2005.the company behind plexus slim

They hit a record sales day of one million dollars  on July 27th 2013. This indicates that their business is going very well.

Their current BBB rating is B+ due to 16 complaints in total. Most of these complaints were related to refunds and not the actual product.

This means that there could be problems with refunds, but they looked like normal cases which occur now and then for all companies.

There were only 4 complaints about the product itself which is a positive sign.

However, I was not able to read what they said, but I would guess that they were cases with people not seeing any weight loss.

One of the most interesting aspects of this product is their ambassador program where people can enroll and buy distributor kits.

It is similar to multi-level-marketing where you recruit more people below you by having them buying starter kits on their own.

This aspect doesn’t have anything to do with the effectiveness of the product itself, but it is worth to mention.

 

How to take it

Since this is a drink, you mix the powder together with water and drink it 30 minutes before a meal.

You should take Accelerator+ at the same time as Plexus Slim according to their website, if you happen to buy this product.

The results will be seen after a few weeks and you should take a break using it after six weeks according to “experts”. This can be referred to as the Plexus Slim cycle.

 

Ingredients

This powder has a large number of ingredients and I will list them all here, but only talk about the most interesting ones that actually do something.ingredients inside plexus slim

  • Polydextrose.
  • Citric acid.
  • Beet root.
  • Lo Han extract.
  • Stevia.
  • Natural flavors.
  • Chlorogenic acid.
  • Rosmarinic acid.
  • Hydroxycinnamic acid.
  • Citrin K.
  • Alpha lipoic acid.
  • Oxypregnane steroidal glycoside.
  • Chromium.

Out of these ingredients, only a few are the real active ingredients, which is normal.

The Alpha lipoic acid is the ingredient which lowers blood pressure, but it also has the potential to interfere with medications regulating blood pressure.

Polydextrose is the ingredient most likely causing the bloating some people have experienced.

Chlorogenic acid  is the most interesting ingredient and it has also been proven effective in clinical studies. You may also find this in green coffee bean extract. It is unclear if the amount of Chlorogenic acid is enough to promote weight loss.

Citrin K may reduce appetite, but there are no scientific reports on it (was removed in the new formula).

Chromium. May lower blood sugar levels.

The rest of these ingredients do not have any proof regarding weight loss.

 

Accelerator+ Ingredients

  • Dark Chocolate.
  • Natural Caffeine.
  • Green Tea Extract.
  • Vanadium Chelate.
  • B-Phenylethylamine HCl.
  • Geranium oil.

The only ingredient here which can promote weight loss is the green tea extract, but there are other and better products with green tea. The amount of green tea is also unknown.

There is also a reason to be concerned about the Geranium oil which in fact is “DMAA”.

You can read what the FDA has to say about this stimulant here. There are also some nasty side effects caused by DMAA which can interfere with blood pressure and increase it to dangerous levels.

It is a bit funny how Plexus Slim has ingredients to lower blood pressure and Accelerator+ has ingredients to increase it.

In conclusion, I don’t see any reason to buy Accelerator+, especially if you are sensitive to caffeine.

 

Side Effects

There are a number of side effects reported by users on Amazon.com. The most common one is bloatedness and constipation. Others have reported side effects such as:side effects of plexus slim

  • Heartburn.
  • Jittery.
  • Nautious.
  • Headache.
  • Dizzy.
  • Chest pain.

These side effects are most likely caused by Accelerator+ which has caffeine in it. You should avoid Accelerator+ if you are sensitive to caffeine.

Since it also contains Chromium which lowers blood sugar levels, there is a risk that it will interfere if you take any medicine which lowers blood sugar.

 

What is the cost?

Plexus Slim is sold on Plexus Worldwide at $84,95 for a non-recurring 30-day supply. They also have an auto-shipment program which costs $79,95 per month. The difference here is not that big and it is also very expensive. It’s clearly in the upper price range.

The Accelerator+ costs $39,95 as a one-time purchase or $29,95 for the monthly recurring plan. There is also a combo-package for $114,95 or $99,85 per month. This is also a very high price to pay per month when there are other products available.

Since this product has increased in popularity due to their community, it isn’t strange that they are selling it for this price.

 

Final Verdict

Will Plexus Slim work? I’m not so sure about that. It is clear that people are having mixed opinions about Plexus Slim after reading through comments on various websites.should you take plexus slim

Some people claim they had excellent results and others haven’t had any results at all or side effects.

There are also no scientific studies on its effectiveness which makes it even more unclear.

In conclusion, you may want to test this product since it has ingredients that can help reduce weight, but there are better and less expensive products to try such as Phen375.

What is your opinion on Plexus Slim?

      You should consult your doctor.

    I have been taking Plexus slim since 11/1/13 and I have lost over 40 lbs. I have high blood pressure and high blood sugar. I saw my endocrinologist in december but had only lost a little since then. exactly 3 months later I went back. blood sugar 7.1 down to 6.3. blood press 156/88 down to 120/78. One blood pressure medicine discontinued. Metformin blood sugar medicine dosage cut in half. This is the easiest “diet” i have ever been on because I eat what I want, which isn’t much because I AM NOT HUNGRY. Snack eating is virtually nil. I love this stuff!!

    • aspenleaf

      Were you taking the accelerator as well? I am concerned about my high blood pressure

  • Anne B

    All the Plexus products have worked well for me. I lost 30 pounds in 3 1/2 months which included Thanksgiving and Christmas. I ate pie. I ate fudge. And of course margaritas. Yet I still manged to lose. Best of all I’m off of three if my blood sugar meds. My Dr was tickled pink with my weight loss. In another 30 days he will probably take me off my Blood Pressure and Cholesterol meds as well.
    I urge to read about these products. They worked so well for me, I now offer them to you. See

    Great Review Miriam :)

    I’ll definite reference this post for all the knowledge you have on the active ingredients and known causes of side effects. It’s hard to find quality content and you delivered.

  • Teri

    I’m confused by your comment that Plexus is expensive and you recommend phen375 which is even more expensive. …

    • http://www.bestdietpillreviewsforwomen.com/ MiriamSJones

      It’s expensive for what it does.

  • Tara

    I’ve been using Plexus Slim, Accelerator +, Pro Bio 5, Bio Cleanse, and X Factor for about 10 days now, and haven’t felt this good in years! I’ve lost 7 lbs, and lots of inches (haven’t measured), I sleep well and wake easy, and best of all…my sugar/carb cravings are MUCH better than they’ve ever been!

    Actually you left out a main ingredient in the plexus slim which is garcinia cambogia… Not very good research displayed here! I am an ambassador of plexus slim and actually know quite a bit about the plexus products and I take them

    • http://www.bestdietpillreviewsforwomen.com/ MiriamSJones

      It is listed as Citrin K which is a standardized extract from garcinia cambogia. I should have been more clear about that.
