Plexus Slim uses natural ingredients to help users burn fat while retaining muscle. The powder packet is mixed with a bottle of water and consumed 30 minutes before any meal once a day. The active ingredients in Plexus Slim are alpha lipoic acid and garcinia cambogia. The evidence linking garcinia cambogia to weight loss is inconsistent. Some studies find an effect and others do not.
Plexus Slim contains a blend of chlorogenic acid extracts, garcinia cambogia extract and alpha lipoic acid, in combination with other natural ingredients, to promote weight loss, healthy cholesterol, sugar and lipid levels and a decreased appetite.
Garcinia cambogia is extracted from the rind of a fruit. Some research suggests it decreases appetite and inhibits fat storage. Alpha lipoic acid may have some beneficial effects for people with Type 2 diabetes. It has also been used as a treatment for diabetic neuropathy. There is, however, no clear evidence that it is helpful for weight loss.
Plexus Slim is diabetic friendly and nonthermogenic and contains no monosodium glutamate. The product gets a sweet taste from using a combination of Stevia and Lao Han sweeteners, both of which are completely natural and safe alternatives to sugar and artificial sweeteners.
Plexus Slim developers state that most people see results from using the product in as little as two weeks. They also state that there is no need to exercise while using the product to see the results. Exercise should be a part of any healthy lifestyle, with at least 20 to 30 minutes of each day spent walking or doing a light cardio workout. If the user decides to exercise while using Plexus Slim, the results are more dramatic and happen at a faster rate for most people. The ingredients are designed to create a suppressed appetite, so eating habits must change in order to see results.
