Plexus Slim Dangers & Side Effects

What are the Plexus Slim Dangers and Side Effects?

Most people venture into weight loss supplements or products because their experiences have led to no success. That’s understandable, and it is ok. One of these weight loss solutions that is commonly spoken about is Plexus Slim. Before starting any weight loss solution, it’s extremely vital that you first read the side effects, Plexus Slim included.

What is Plexus Slim?

Plexus 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.

PLEXUS SLIM SIDE EFFECTSDoes Plexus Slim Have Any Side Effects?

Plexus Worldwide, the parent company owning Plexus Slim, claims there are no known side effects with their supplement. This is easy to claim, especially if you are trying to sell your product.

After reading countless reviews, forum posts, blog posts, we’re able to gather that there are in fact some side effects of Plexus Slim.

The most common side effects of Plexus Slim include nausea, constipation, stomach pain, increase blood pressure, shakiness and elevated heart rate. These are not side effects which should easily be ignored. There have also been reports of damaged kidney functionality directly correlated with the use of Plexus Slim

Furthermore, the FDA has sent a warning letter to the owners of Plexus Slim, stating their concerns. You can read the letter here.

Is Plexus Slim Dangerous?

With the variety of content available on the web dictating the dangers of Plexus Slim, you are left with your conclusions on whether or not this product is for you.

As an avid health nut, this is surely a product I would stay away from, most importantly because the ingredients are the typical fad ingredients, being nothing special.

With ingredients that are not all-natural, you aren’t too sure about what you’re putting in your body.

A well-known replacement for Plexus Slim as a weight loss supplement that has 100% natural ingredients is Slimfy. They have a Free 30-Day Offer.

To Wrap This Up…

Plexus Worldwide is a company with thousands of real reviews on the web. The majority of these reviews dictate that the company is a scam. I don’t personally believe it’s a scam as we recommend every do their own due diligence when deciding to try out a product. The company may have a product that doesn’t provide results, but it’s your choice on whether or not to try Plexus Slim.

If I was searching for a legitimate weight loss supplement, Plexus Slim is something I would personally stay far away from.

    It does contain a stimulant. Green coffee is the first ingredient. And it does have at least one proven side effect weight loss, or at least proven by Plexus.

    Stimulant and side effects! The two times I’ve taken the recommended dosage of accelerator, I’ve had the jitters, big time….shaking, racing heart, etc….something I’ve NEVER experienced before taking this!

    I took tri plex for 5 weeks. Had side effects of elevated blood pressure, stomach pain, and feeling like I had the flu (which they all said it was detox of candida). Now I have an extremely high reading on my B12 boos work. All doctors are telling me to stop taking this supplement.

      Hi L,

      Sorry to hear about what happened with Plexus Slim. Unfortunately, these issues are all too common, even with the FDA issuing a warning to Plexus Worldwide, the parent company of the supplement. You can read the FDA’s letter here,

      We sincerely wish you the best of health. In no time, everything will go back to normal :).

    I started this, because my sister sales it . I took it one day and I threw up afterwords and it felt like I had the flu. I think that I might be allergic to it. I am unsure about this dietary supplement.

    I’ve tried plexus, I’m 25 and feel a bit tired from time to time. so, I tried it for about 2-3 weeks. I felt amazing for 1 week, now I’m worried. I’ve got tingles and pain in my left leg and arm, racing heart, and at times feel faint. I’ve seen a lot of people get good resultes, but I am certainly not one of them. I feel as if I’m getting a blood clot in my left leg, I do not trust this product, or what they put in it. Especially how it’s banned in Australia and in Canada? There’s something wrong there. No thanks plexus!

      I agree with you. I got very sick taking these products and ended up in the emergency room for 3 times in one month due to very bad pains in my stomach and by my inner leg. Once I stopped taking the products my bloated and gassy and such went away. I would not recommend this products to others. Buyer Beware. Yes it may work for some people, these products are not for EVERYONE like they say. I am having issues because of taking these products. Not a happy camper. 🙁 also I had to stay in the hospital for 2 nights for observation. I told the company what happened and sent the products back and get my money back. so that was good.

    I have been taking the Plexus TriPlex Combo for about a year now. Four months ago I started having a terrible itch in my vagina. I thought it was a yeast infection it was so bad. After 4 months of treatments I finally just said I will stop the Slim drink to see if this was the cause. No itch!!! I am shocked and so disappointed. It has curbed my appetite and I was so pleased with it and the weight I’ve lost. Now I don’t know what to do. ?

      Beth, I’m reading all these replies because a good friend sells Plexus and said it did great things for her and friends with serious immune system diseases and health issues from car accidents, etc… However, I am a very skeptical person as I have a pantry full of products “as seen on TV”! In my 56 yrs of live I’ve always heard that “If something sounds too good to be true, it usually is”!!!!!!! After reading review after review, I’m thinking 100% that the Plexus products is definitely too good to be true! Please always remember that little saying. It also applies to a lot of things in life!

    I’ve only drank 3 packets and considering stopping it after reading reports from everyone else. I have been extremely tired the past few days and feel weak in my legs. I have no motivation to do anything. Adding plexus to my day is the only thing I have changed in my daily routine.

    Just a heads up for nursing moms…I took the triplex combo for 5 days and my milk drastically decreased. Many said it was great for nursing, and now I’m loosing my milk. My baby’s 3 months old. I’m so so devastated. Plus on top of that I feel like crap!! needless to say I’m done with plexus.

      Finally a voice of reason. I am a recovering ambassador and did an experiment. Plexus slim for one month with exercise and careful eating. The next month I dropped plexus and continued my healthy eating and exercise. I lost more weight in the second month without changing my exercise and healthy eating. So…. Plexus didn’t make as much of a difference as eating right and regularly exercising.

        A lot of people will say you should drink in ounces half of your body weight of water. Maybe that’s why everyone is having bad reaction. Can anyone come forward and say they drank that much water? Because if you didn’t than that makes sense with these bad reactions. I’ve only taken it once and might continue unless someone admits they drank tons of water everyday however long they were taking it and still had a bad reaction. It has to be half of your body weight of water in ounces. Let me know please!

    I tried this three separate times – each time for about a month. Aside from gaining rather than losing weight, each time I felt like I had the flu – fever, joints hurt, kidney and abdomen pain. Not worth it. I’ll just keep my extra 10 pounds rather than deal with this. Went to the garbage.

    I took Plexus Slim, BioCleanse5, Pro-Biotic, and Edge. In addition to seeing no results I have had terrible side effects. The Edge made my heart race, BioCleanse gave me diarrhea, and the new Slim made me shaky and weak, like I had real low blood sugar.

    I have a good friend who has been overweight and had lots of health problems, the main one was chronic constipation. Her gastro doctor tried several prescription medications to no avail. Did not help. She tried over the counter probiotics. Nothing worked. 2 years ago she started a portion control diet and started slowly losing weight. Then someone introduced her to Plexus. OMG. She started on ProBio5 and Biocleanse. She quickly became an ambassador, posting constantly on facebook. She sent me an email that clearly she did not write herself, inviting me to try this. (I have diverticulosis and IBSD, slightly high blood pressure, I take a lose dose medicine for this, severe case of scoliosis, back pain) She posted selfies and raved and raved about how wonderful Plexus ProBio5 was. She said that she now has 4-5 bowel movements a day and feels better than she ever has. Says her bloodwork is better, everything is better. She advertised a “Week of Pink” special in October of last year. Gullible me finally gave in, to the tune of 35.00 for a week’s supply of Slim. My friend did not tell me anything about side effects, only to drink as much water as I could. I am a short girl, 56 years old, petite, but with middle age spread. I could stand to lose 20 pounds. My friend is tall, very big boned. A lot of difference in our size. I was kind of excited to try something that promised so much: weight loss, more energy, stamina, ect. I even talked with another friend who takes it and she raved on & on about it too. (Her daughter also sells, is an Ambassador for Plexus). Anyway, the big day came. I work 40 hours a week at an office job. I mixed the famous pink drink packet up in my 16 oz.bottle of water around 9 AM on a Wed. morning. Not bad. Easy to go down. I was told to drink it all within 30 minutes., also 30 minutes before I ate something . I ate a fiber bar around 9:30. Drank 2 more bottle of water before lunch. All was going great, until I began to feel like I had drank 48 oz. of hydrogen peroxide. I have NEVER felt so bloated in my life. Very uncomfortable. My husband and I went out to lunch. I could barely eat 2 bites and began feeling nauseous. That afternoon my stomach came alive. I have never heard sounds come from my stomach like that before, and the gas!! OMG. Loud, embarrassing gas at work??? NOT COOL! I made it to 5 and went home. All that night my stomach howled and I had loud, uncontrollable, stinky gas. My bladder also had a very weird feeling. A burning, stinging feeling. The next morning I had a bowel movement the size of Texas. I called my friend and told her I wanted my money back, I could not stand feeling this way, and it just didn’t feel right to me. I didn’t want any more of this in my body. She told me that she had been instructed to NOT tell the possible side effects because not everybody had them. Anyway, I got my money back and there are no hard feelings with my friend. She continues to sing the praises and tries to recruit others to sell. It’s all a big money making thing I guess. I admit I haven’t heard many negative reviews from people I know who try it, but I know in my gut, literally, that this stuff is not all good. Be careful people.

    All I had heard and read from my friends was how wonderful Plexus Slim was so, in spite of my reservations, I took the leap three months ago. At the time my A1C was at 6.2 and had been trending downward (by the way, down is good). Just last week I had it checked again – 7.2. Yikes. the only change in that three months has been Plexus. I think I’ll quit and see what happens.

    I’ve been using Slim, ProBio5, BioCleanse and Ease for just shy of 3 months. I’m a big reader and believer in gut health, I’ve always taken probiotics (just didn’t realize there are very important differences between them that most of us don’t know about) and I’ve been living Primal Blueprint since 2012 (low inflammation/low insulin production lifestyle), so I know very well how my body reacts to different than normal every day things. The only ‘detox’ symptom I’ve experienced is about 2 weeks (at about 6 weeks in) of more frequent and looser bowel movements than I’m used to. BioCleanse was definitely behind that, so I’ve dropped my dose to 3 per day instead of 4. I do find that if I take Slim after noon, I am awake far later in the evening, but that’s to be expected – the amount of green coffee bean extract in it is probably just enough to affect me more at 5ft tall 110lbs. (Same way one cup of caffeinated coffee after 2pm will keep me up until 2am!) So, all of this to say, 100%, the products will not work the same way for every person. Some experience great things (I consider myself one of those and plan to keep using them for at least another 3 months before I get a good read – but again, I’ve been taking various supplements for years, knowing that I can’t possibly eat 100% perfect all the time…I like (all) food waaaaaay too much! But not all food is good for me!…so vitamins and probiotics have always been a part of my life. The reason I choose to live Primal Blueprint is because I’m a believer in the affects of inflammation in my body. So, believing that Slim helps with blood sugar regulation is just a bonus for me, but knowing it has a prebiotic in it is the extra bonus. Yes, I signed up as an ambassador, but I’m a cheap bugger and hate spending money – I like discounts!! but I don’t sell the product. I’ve definitely told some friends in my life about it when they’ve told me about some health issue they are having (like energy, or intestinal issues), but I’ve also said to research gut health and microbiome in general and if they have questions they can ask me about the supplements I take. Anyway, just wanted to share another perspective.

    Stating taking plexus on a Monday, by wendneday Was a work starting feeling very strange bad headache increased heart rate, disoriented and ached from head to toe! By noon on that day my blood pressure reached 165/120. Called my dr. And luckily she was aware of plexus! Took three blood pressure meds. To get blood pressure normal! Also, messed with my stomach and just felt very strang! So my dr. Said stop no more cannot take this with high blood pressure! Have been off since Wednesday, it is Sunday and just now feeling a little more back to normal. Word of advise if you take any medications please check with your dr. The person that sold it to me never asked certain questions about any of my health and any prescriptions I take that might plexus might inter fear with it. My fault for not doing much research and cousting my dr. But the people selling it need more traing on what questions to ask and see if it is safe for you! Have nothing fit the company or the people that sale it with no training! Don’t wish what I went through on anybody

    I have had tremendous success regarding my A1C with the slim pink. I don’t use any of the other supplements but I find myself energized when I have my drink. It doesn’t work for everyone , those that talk about the dizziness may want to check their blood sugar . It has helped me control mine greatly and will continue to drink the slim pink. Again, it is not for everyone.
