The makers of Plexus Slim (& many of their ‘independent’ distributors) claim this ‘Pink Drink’ can…
help you lose weight, burn fat and balance blood sugar / cholesterol levels (without exercising)
…sounds impressive, but can this popular product live up to the hype?
We put it to the test, and the results surprised us! Here’s what we found…
Does It Work Or Is It a Scam?
Plexus Slim seems to be everywhere we look at the moment, and we’ve been inundated with questions about the product, the ingredients, and whether we recommended it or not.
Whilst this product definitely isn’t an outright scam, it also isn’t everything it claims to be. We’ll let you decide if this is the right product for you (or not)…

What is Plexus Slim?
Plexus Slim, often referred to as the “Pink Drink“, is a powdered drink mix that’s been around since 2008. Simply mix the powder with water and take 30 minutes before a meal, usually with a pill called ‘Accelerator+’.
Sounds easy, right? Perhaps a bit too easy…
ALERT: Most Plexus Slim Reviews are written by the company’s ‘Ambassadors’!
Finding independent Plexus Slim reviews can be a challenge, as most of them are written by people who sell the products and are trying to make a buck.
These people often make outrageous claims, with little or no supporting evidence to back them up (we even found someone who was told this product is a diabetes medication!).
This misinformation can be dangerous. Please be on alert when doing your research.
How Does it Work?
The product contains a number of natural ingredients, which the makers claim cover “all areas of weight loss” and help to reduce cravings, decrease appetite, increase metabolism and speed up fat burning.
These are BIG claims, especially when the company also claims exercise isn’t required.
Whilst our reviews show the product does contain a few ingredients (see below) with ‘some’ evidence that they can be useful in aiding weight loss, we haven’t found any evidence that this product can live up to its hype and outrageous claims.

Below you’ll find a selection of reviews that users have submitted for this product.
I've used this product for about 2 months now and I'm not sure its really doing anything (except costing me money!)
I did lose some weight when I first started using this product and its quick / easy to use, but the results have tapered off, not sure if there is something I am missing?
What a load of rubbish! I friend kept recommending this to me (didnt know she was a rep at the time!) so I decided to give it a try - but it didnt work for me (no results, same weight) so I am going to contact her to see if I can get a refund.
I started on just the drink. No results, then told to add accelerator, pro bio, bio cleanse. Till i quit it was costin 150-170 per month. I was on months. I just cant see spendin that money w no results. They claim i didnt give enough time, excuse me??? They need to make it cheaper if u need to be on longer for results instead of sending their ambassadors to hawaii & florida!! Disgusted, my FB page is loaded w them trying to push it.

However, these side effects appear uncommon and most people do not experience any issues taking the product.
Plexus Slim: Our Verdict
This is not a product we’ll be using ourselves, and we can’t recommend it to you.
We know some people have seen positive results & have lost weight using Plexus Slim, however there’s a good chance these results will be short-term and as soon as they stop using the product the weight will come right back.
There’s a lack of clinical research, and to be honest this feels like another ‘quick fix’ product. We are particularly concerned about the messages (or lack of) from the makers about the importance of exercise, and eating a clean, healthy diet.
If you are trying to lose weight and need a boost, then it might be worth a closer look. However, you’ll get better, longer-term results by making a few simple (& free) tweaks to your diet and daily lifestyle.
Find out how to lose weight and keep it off, increase energy levels and enjoy optimum health without any supplements, pills, potions or products (and in just a few minutes a day!).
