Major Problems with Plexus Slim

The drug has been known in extreme cases to causes intestinal and digestive problems such as severe constipation.
Some of the users have developed issues ranging from problems digesting specific foods, to extreme cases where a complete shutdown of the digestive tract occurred. Other problems include chronic diarrhea, which is reported by an increasing number of users with excess gas and increased dehydration.
Although many of the symptoms may seem manageable and not "serious", continued exposure could lead to more serious problems and in fact result in chronic illnesses.

  1. I used to drink the plexus shakes. They made me so sick! Nausea. Sweating. Shaking. It was horrible! After I got rid of them I ended up buying the block. It says to take two. Two makes me sick so I only take one. After I started taking them I started having chest pain. I’m not saying it’s related but definitely suspicious. None of my doctor’s could tell me if plexus was safe.
  2. this stuff is dangerous. It’s basically a company making $$$ off of what should be medically prescribed products.
    I am a super healthy, slightly underweight individual who tried the probio5 at the advice of a friend to help with sleep and “gut health” For 2 months I have been in and out of the doctor thinking I had the flu.
    I got bronchitis, had chronic headaches, extreme constipation (was regular before) and lost weight (good right? not 4 lbs in a week because you are sick)
    I have been off the probiotics for 1 full week and feel like myself for the first time since I started them. My advice: Do not start this product without consulting your doctor and please notice this RED FLAG – no side effects or warnings on their labels! Who does that!?

    1. My sister and brother in law were involved in Plexus big time. Diamond Ambassadors or something like that. My sister had already dropped to working only a couple days a week. They both were ready to quit their day jobs and devote all their time to recruiting. They have always fallen into these get rich pyramid schemes with unreal expectations of overnight wealth.
      They even conned my 80 yo parents to each signed up as ambassadors plus had both of them convinced that Plexus products was the cure for everything. My parents were spending around five hundred of dollars a month on Plexus products.
      I never fell for it. Seriously, $40 for a bottle of icy hot. I found it all ridiculous. I never tried any of it despite the constant sales pressure from my family.
      One day, every mention of Plexus was removed from her FB page. She stopped using Plexus Slim, the bio cleanse and all the other ingestible Plexus products she was taking. She took the signs off the sides and windows of her car. The signs were removed from her husbands truck too. They made no mention of this.
      Finally one day I asked her. She told me that her husband was still doing it but she had a change of heart and that the market was getting saturated. I know that is what eventually happens with MLM but I thought this was strange. Her ceasing Plexus was an abrupt full stop.
      Eventually I found out that she had a severe imbalance in her body which was rather serious. She has been going to a Dr for some sort of injection treatment and hormone therapy for almost two years. I’m convinced that it was all the Plexus Slim, the accelerator, boost, plus the numerous other Plexus crap she was doing.
    1. What a horrible joke Plexus is. Not a single R.D., MD, Nutritionist, Fitness expert, nor celebrity supports this MLM product that targets stay at home Christian moms. Vague ingredients, it’s practically a placebo. This pyramid needs to go down. The “Ambassador ” title is a joke some lady getting a free car because she’s conned her friends into buying this bogus product . Spread the word, PLEXUS IS A SCAM
    2. I am stopping the products right now. Wow! I have never felt so awful in my life. Chronic diarrhea, stomach pain, bloating, and my “ambassador” says that it’s just the “die off.” I’m a nurse and this does not seem right. I am set to see my doctor tomorrow to figure out if there is something else going on, but from what I am reading, this stuff is harmful and likely the cause of my issues. Luckily, I’ve only been taking it for a little over a month, so hopefully, nothing that can’t be fixed.




I was recently contacted by someone who asked me to look at some information about his company.  Below you will find my response to that and his last response to me.

Dear _____,  thanks for reaching out to me, but sounds like you are affiliated with direct sales/MLM/Network Marketing. After my Plexus Worldwide nightmare, I will NEVER do any type network marketing / direct sales or MLM again. I already fell for the "but this one is different" line. No offense to you, but at this point in my life I'm done with them, no matter what they promise. If you're interested, you can read more below and you'll understand why I feel the way I do. My blog is first on the list. You are more than welcome to share... hate to see others get taken by this company.

Word is spreading about this conpany and others like them, little by little.  Don't think for a second YOUR voice doesn't matter....  it not only matters, it's NEEDED!  It's time we all stand up for the Plexus Monster that almost destroyed us!

My Pinkwashed Nightmare

I am writing regarding my experience (aka: nightmare) with Plexus Worldwide, an MLM company based in Scottsdale, AZ
I became an ambassador with Plexus Worldwide October 15, 2013 and based the majority of that decision on the following:
• On Facebook I continually saw “drink pink and shrink”, “just one pink drink a day melts the fat away”. Even the corporate welcome page boasted “Lose weight faster than you ever imagined”.  (read the rest of the story here)
