If you spend anytime on Facebook or other social media sites there’s a chance you’ve seen someone (probably one of their distributors) promoting a product called Plexus Slim.
After a number of our readers contacted us, we decided to take a closer look and see if this product could live up to its hype…
What is Plexus Slim and How Does it Work?
Plexus promotes the product as a natural, healthy solution to losing weight for the long term, keeping blood sugar levels stable and cholesterol at a healthy level. It’s also said to help reduce binge eating and provide more willpower over food.
Plexus Slim and Accelerator+
Plexus Slim is a powdered drink mix. The powder is mixed with water and then consumed about 30 minutes before a meal. It is sold together with a pill called Accelerator+.
The company claims that the combination of these products will ensure rapid weight loss by burning fat and not muscle, increasing will power over food, and helping dieters overcome weight plateaus.
The company claims that it works by balancing blood sugar, and that by doing so the weight will naturally come off. It states the “proven ingredients” that make the product work include Alpha Lipoic Acid, Chlorogenic Acid and Garcinia Cambogia.
Plexus Slim Reviews Written by Company Distributors
In a world filled with a practically endless amount of weight loss products, it’s hard to know what really works, what may be harmful to your health, and what may be more of a scam than anything else.
Benefits Don’t Live up to the Claims
A search of Plexus Slim reviews will bring up a number of posts touting its benefits, but when you take a closer look you’ll often find that those reviews were written by people selling the products and trying to make a buck.
Keep in mind that Plexus Slim is sold through multi-level marketing, or MLM. There is nothing inherently wrong with that, provided the product is reputable. If it is, MLM is a great way for people to make a potentially significant income in addition to being a very effective method of distribution when done correctly, and when strictly controlled by the parent company. If not, it’s a completely different ball game.
Distributors Making Big Claims – Without Any Supporting Evidence
Unfortunately, there are unqualified distributors claiming that these products can do more than they actually can.
This is a real issue because it makes it extremely difficult to find a factual, independent answer as to how well the products work. In fact, one woman claims that her stepmother was sold a Plexus product from a distributor who told her it was a diabetic medication. Obviously such misinformation could have some serious implications.
Mis-information Could Be Dangerous
A quick look around the Internet will reveal numerous Plexus customers who have been given advice by distributors, or “Ambassadors” as they’re called, that should only be given by a qualified, licensed healthcare professional. Most are unaware of the potential dangers of mixing some prescription medications with the product, which can be potentially quite dangerous.
Pros and Cons of Plexus Slim
If you’re trying to make a decision as to whether or not this product can help you to achieve the weight loss results you’re looking for, it’s important to consider the facts when it comes to the pros and the cons of this product.
Plexus Slim – A Scam?
We’ve heard some people claim Plexus Slim is a scam, and whilst we wouldn’t go that far, it’s definitely not a product we will be taking ourselves or recommending to others.
What about you?
Research into weight-loss product claims is essential when it comes to your good health and well-being, and whether or not you really want to spend your hard earned money on something that may or may not be effective.
