Honest Plexus Reviews

There are thousands of reviews of Plexus online. Some are written by haters who diss every vitamin in existence. And God forbid if it’s sold via MLM!

Other reviews are written by Plexus Ambassadors drunk on the placebo effect of lining their own pocketbooks.

But where are the truly honest and balanced reviews of Plexus?

I’m a bit in both camps. I have friends who are Plexus Ambassadors, but I am very cautious about the MLM method of marketing as it leads to much higher costs.

I am skeptical of many of the snake oil claims peddled by the supplement industry, but I am enthusiastic about the scientifically-proven benefits of many supplements and herbs. Above all, I work very hard to be balanced and honest.

So I’ve done my best to compile and summarize honest reviews of Plexus from all over the web for your benefit.

What Is Plexus?

Plexus is a food supplementation company selling different kinds of health and workout supplements. The most popular product by Plexus is the Plexus Slim pink drink.

Plexus Slim got popular because up to 90% opt for drinks, pills, and teas for weight loss instead of changing their healthy habits and working out.

Plexus supplements, as well as all other slimming, bulking, health, and beauty supplements, should be used by people who have no severe diseases and take no prescribed medicines.

Also, the individual who opts for Plexus must practice a healthy lifestyle, be active, and eat healthy and balanced food. Food supplements are only vitamin and mineral support that might help us stay healthy, immunized, and energized.

Is It Safe and FDA-Regulated?

The seller of Plexus Slim, like all other supplement sellers, claims its product’s safety. But, the main factor that determines the product’s safety is the consumer’s health condition. Healthy people might face little to no side effects.

Among the side effects of this supplement, individuals noticed dizziness in the first month, blood sugar level drops, and sometimes tiredness. Anyway, these side effects are temporary and appear to some individuals because of unknown reasons.

Regarding the FDA regulation, Plexus is not approved or regulated by the Food and Drug Administration. Some of the ingredients present in this product might be a cause of thrombocytopenia, but it is not surely proven. 1

Honest Plexus Reviews

Everyone is unique and has different needs and goals. People often think that a single supplement can make them fit overnight without changing anything in their routines.

Seeing a positive review about a slimming supplement might encourage you to purchase that supplement and try it on yourself. Negative reviews, for instance, might make you even more skeptical about weight loss drinks and pills.

So, here are some honest Plexus reviews written by people who decided to share their good and bad experiences.

Quoted Customer Reviews


“Expensive but effective.
Pros: Tastes good, super easy to mix, and it helps cleanse your body and put you on the path to a healthier lifestyle. It boosted my energy as well as cleaned out toxins in my body.
Cons: While it works well, it still costs more than I would want to pay. To properly follow its use, you need to purchase a bag of these each month, and the cost adds up quickly.” – Mark Lucent

“I’ve been buying directly from Plexus, but I saw this product on Amazon for the same price. As I was going to buy more of this and needed other items, I bought it. If you are looking for a weight loss program, I’d recommend this. Do a little research and buy the Boost capsules as well. The flavor is nice, easy preparation, and easy to use.” – Hope Spratt

“Slim is great tasting, and for me, it keeps the water weight off. I feel better on Plexus. The flavors are good, and nutritionally balanced. I use slim, hunger control, meta burn, and chocolate shakes.” – Janice F.


Flavor tastes fine. Honestly haven’t noticed any change in how I feel. I honestly think I’ve only lost a few pounds because I’ve skipped meals, not because of this drink. I took it once a day. Doesn’t curb appetite any either. Maybe I should try it twice a day…” – Leana Kobayashi

“Not too impressed with the product. After a month+ of using this, I really didn’t notice that I had lost any weight, but I could only take half a dose early in the morning because of the caffeine in it. Even with half a dose it made me shaky. Although my friend who recommended it loves the product.” – Anonymous user


“I did this for 60 days and never noticed and change in my body.” – Debbie

“I’ve seen this all over the place about how great it is. Not impressed at all. The taste is not good at all it’s a fake watermelon flavor overpowered by a very sweet artificial sweetener flavor. Way too expensive for what it claims. Perhaps it makes some people feel better, but it has done nothing for me.” – Alicia L. Norton


From what we found, it doesn’t appear Plexus is a bad or dangerous product. No one reported serious side effects from taking Plexus products except the ones caused by individual ingredient sensitivity and specific user health conditions.

The product is made to support a healthy diet and weight loss. It is not a slimming product that does wonders on its own. No supplement alone can miraculously cause weight loss, but certain vitamins like Plexus Slim have been scientifically shown to have a small positive effect on weight loss.
