Does Plexus Slim contain any MSG?
Plexus Slim does not contain MSG or other proven red-flag ingredients. Although some manufacturers play label games to hide MSG and other controversial ingredients, all of the chemical names used in labelling Plexus Slim are the chemical break downs of the various plant extracts used.. No MSG, no artificials, no synthetics. Monosodium Glutamate has been used as a preservative in many foods. There is also a theory out there that it has been used in fast foods and grocery store foods to cause people to want to eat more, thus purchase more of the product. We have never seen any empirical data to support the claim. Of course, none of that applies to Plexus Slim because there simply isn’t any in our product.
What are the fillers in Plexus Slim?
Maltodextrin and fructose are both commonly used fillers. There are many variations of these two ingredients. The maltodextrin variation we use is among the lowest glycemic index available. We use it rather than other fillers because it does not adversely affect the taste of the product. Over the years, some product companies have put taste on a back burner when it came to the formulation. Even though some people do acquire a taste for these products, most do not. We have seen many drinks that are very healthy but people stop taking them because they can’t gag them down day after day. We have seen drinks that taste fabulous but have extremely high glycemic indices, thus the taste deters from the product’s health benefits. Plexus Slim strikes the balance between tasting good and refreshing while still carrying a relatively low glycemic index.
How often do I have to take Plexus Slim?
Most people only need to take Plexus Slim once a day to get the desired results. However, people who struggle with weight loss or people who have a lot of weight to lose, may find that taking Plexus Slim twice a day works better for them.

Will Plexus Slim cause me to notice a loss in kilograms or inches?
Every person is different and what happens with one person is not necessarily what is going to happen with another. Most people report that they lose inches first. That is why we urge you to take your starting measurements. That may be where your results first show up. On the other hand, we have had people reporting a loss in weight before the loss of inches show up.
Can Plexus be taken with anti-depressants? (Welbutrin or other mood altering medication?)

What is the sweetener in Plexus Slim?
Much time and effort has been expended in developing the taste of Plexus Slim. The goal was to create a good tasting product without using harmful or controversial ingredients. The final formulation that produced the desired taste uses a combination of Stevia and Lohan. Stevia being a leaf extract and Lohan being a fruit extract. During product development, several variations of the formula were created using only Stevia. The result was a bitter aftertaste considered by most test subjects to be unpleasant. Stevia and Lohan are both safe and effective alternatives to sugar and artificial sweeteners.

Do I need to eat differently when I am taking Plexus Slim?
This is a really important question and here is a very simple thing to keep in mind: if you keep on doing what you have always been doing, you will keep on getting what you have always been getting. In reverse, if you want to lose weight permanently, you will need to eat differently than before. Plexus Slim is formulated to help you make a life-style change to your eating habits.
Plexus Slim contains natural ingredients that have been shown to reduce appetite. However, some people just ignore their body’s new messages and keep on eating like before. Some people eat emotionally; they eat because they are stressed or upset. Most people are trained to eat with their eyes and eat by the clock.
What do we mean by that?
Has this ever happened to you? You look at the clock and realise it is supper time. You sit down to eat your supper and realise that you really aren’t hungry. But, because it is supper time, you eat your supper anyway. That’s what we mean by eating by the clock.
Some people sit down for a meal and fill up their entire plate with food. Then, they eat until everything on the plate is gone. They are not listening to their bodies. Weight loss specialists tell us that the stomach is really designed to consume a meal that is about the size of a clenched fist.
If you go to a restaurant, try ordering an appetiser for your main meal. Wait a few minutes after you finish eating. If you are still hungry after you have had your appetiser, you can always order another appetiser. Our guess is that if you listen to your body, you will realise that you are full. And, one other thing, your savings account will also appreciate the lower cost of the meal.
If you are looking for a restaurant and you see the sign “All You Can Eat” or if you see “Buffet Dinner Tonight”, please drive on. We have been trained to always get the best deal we can for our money. When we are at a buffet that means that we need to go back at least three times AND go for dessert as well just to make sure we get full value for what we have paid.
Make a decision: Do you want to lose weight and keep it off by making a small life-style change? If so, Plexus Slim is designed to help you do that. On the other hand, if you want to make sure you are getting the biggest bang for your buck by stuffing yourself at the buffet, you can forget about permanent weight loss.
What if I gain weight while taking Plexus?
Plexus Slim by its self in not designed to be an appetite suppressant like most weight loss supplements. We have seen people who are taking the Slim that assume because they are taking the product they will not have the urge to over indulge, somewhat like a placebo effect. While Plexus Slim is designed to help shed unwanted fat it will not act as an appetite suppressant in most cases.
What do you mean by “All Natural”?
The extracts we use in Slim are from organic sources, colouring from beet root, active ingredients are all organic plant derived, sweetening is from the stevia leaf, etc. It is an all natural product.
