What is Plexus Slim & Ingredients

You can learn more about what plexus slim is and its ingredients below.  I have thoroughly researched each ingredient to bring you up to date information on their effects.

First of all, you must realize that the most common product to take is the Plexus Slim and Accelerator+.  This is two products, working together in synergy to accelerate your fat burning and weight loss journey.

EDITOR’S NOTE: With the rising concern of using Plexus Slim, many individuals have been raving about Slimfy and their FREE 30-Day Offer for achieving real results.

What Is Plexus Slim & What Are It’s Ingredients?

Plexus SlimPlexus Slim claims to help with weight loss.  It claims to help those who have either hit plateaus or need some help to achieve their weight loss goals.  They claim to be a healthy, natural solution that helps you keep the weight off for the long-term.  This product claims to burn fat, keeping blood sugar, lipids, and cholesterol at healthy levels,  curbs your cravings and reduces binge eating sessions.

The matter of fact is that all of these claims are to be taken with caution. I have read close to 500 reviews, heard personal stories and testimonials.

The following is the list of ingredients and their supposed mode of action. The most notable ingredient is Garcinia Cambogia, which has been a leading scam in the weight loss industry.

If you’re looking for a REAL all-natural solution, we recommend Slimfy.

Ingredients:

Chromium: It is widely used for improving athletic performance, increasing energy and for WEIGHT LOSS. An “essential trace element” where small trace amounts are necessary for human health. It is commonly used for improving blood sugar control in people with type 1 and 2 diabetes. It also helps with high blood sugar from steroid usage and prediabetes. It can also be used for depression, reducing “bad” cholesterol while raising the “good” especially those who take heart meds like beta blockers, and it helps with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).  True scientific research has just started to test the weight loss effects, along with depression, heart attack prevention, lowering blood sugar and Turner’s syndrome.  Currently, there is insufficient scientific evidence for this; however, being such a new mineral for weight loss, many things need to be tested first before it is “scientifically accepted”.Dr. OZ has been touted explaining the benefits of Chromium, specifically the type Plexus puts in their products “Chromium Polynicotinate.”

Proprietary blend of Chlorogenic Acid (from Green Coffee Coffee Arabica Bean) Extract (contains less than 2% natural caffeine): This is a natural compound also known as a strong antioxidant that helps slow the release of blood glucose after eating. In a randomized, placebo-controlled double-blind crossover linear dose study that was completed to study the effects of the green coffee extract proved that people who took it had significant reductions in the mass and weight of the body and percentage body fat when plotted against the placebo. This study used 16 overweight people and is good proof this helps with weight loss.  Another study published in 2010 noted increased fat burning in rats when taking chlorogenic acid even though they were fed a high fat diet.

Garcinia cambogia Fruit Extract: It is a plant, a fruit. The medicine is made from the rind.  Research has been increasing that suggests garcinia might help control appetite and prevent fat storage in the body.

Alpha Lipoic Acid: This is a vitamin-like antioxidant.  It is found in high concentrations of spinach, broccoli and potatoes and is made in the labs for medicinal purposes.  It is often used for diabetes and helps reduce the symptoms of burning, pain and numbness in the limbs.  In Germany, high doses have been approved to treat these symptoms.  How it works is that it protects cell damage in the body, restoring vitamin C, vitamin E, and others.  It is used to break down carbs in the body making energy for the other organs.  It can also protect the brain and improve liver function. Not enough is known about the use of Alpha Lipoic Acid during pregnancy and breastfeeding so it’s probably best to stay away from it.  Many studies exist proving the benefits of it for weight loss. This is an undisputed contender in the field.

POLYDEXTROSE: For taste and to add Fibre

CITRIC ACID: Helping with the flavor, this is a naturally occurring preservative.

NATURAL FLAVORS: To help naturally with the flavor of the drink

BEET (BETA VULGARIS ROOT) EXTRACT (FOR COLOR): As stated, for color.

STEVIA (STEVIA REBAUDIANA LEAF) EXTRACT: Stevia is made from the plant Stevia Rebaudiana.  It is up to 300 times sweeter than sugar, yet acts as a natural low carbohydrate sweetener.  It’s not uncommon for this to be added to low-calorie foods.  Limiting your carbohydrates while increasing the taste of the product is fine by me.

LUO HAN GUO (SIRAITIA GROSVENORII FRUIT) EXTRACT: Commonly used in Southern China, its popularly known as a longevity aid.  It helps treat all sorts of illnesses and is a sweetener in many beverages and cooked foods.

Real All-Natural Solution

We have since given our 2016 recommendation to Slimfy and their FREE 30-Day Limited Time Offer. Slimfy has amazing reviews and science to back it up and the endless amount of people who has been achieving real results is astronomical.
