Plexus Ambassadors everywhere were gathered around their computers for what Plexus was affectionately calling “The Big Reveal.” Little tidbits had been circulating that this was going to be just that—big. That seasoned Ambassadors had been brought to tears over this reveal when they were told of it earlier. Guesses were being made. And yet none of us could have known just how big this reveal was truly going to be—for none of us could have imagined Plexus Slim, our favorite weight-management, body-balancing, fat-fighting, amazing pink drink, getting any better. And yet—it was revealed that it was. And I’m writing today to tell you that it is!
Plexus Slim is a natural, plant-based drink–right down to its lovely pink color provided by beet root!
Shortly after the announcement that Plexus Slim was now easier-to-mix in cold water, had gut-health-assisting prebiotics, and had a new, fresher taste (while still keeping the former ingredients and properties), I received an email from Plexus Worldwide asking me to write about the “enhanced formula” on my blog. Of course, as someone who loves the Plexus products and has greatly benefited from this little pink wonder drink, I am happy to do so!
Yes–we are drinking plants!
My Plexus story began eighteen months ago when I wanted to try the products to try to lose my last forty of one hundred pounds that I had been working toward for nearly ten years. I also wanted to share the stories of hope that I had been reading and hearing with mamas seeking health in order to do the difficult task of parenting well. (My husband and I teach parenting and homeschooling workshops and write materials for them.)
Refreshing, healthy drink flavored with raspberry-watermelon -lemon extracts.
Little did I know how life-changing these products would be—and the huge effect that I would be able to have on tired, unhealthy moms who wanted more than anything to jump off the couch and go outside to play with their kids, who wanted to have more control over their moods and responses, who desired gut health and energy, and yes, who wanted to achieve weight management with natural, plant-based products and consistent adherence to healthy living, moving, and eating. I get to do that every day now! (To learn about many of the Plexus products, watch my “Plexus playlist” video from YouTube):
Delicious, plant-based, natural, non-GMO, gut-microbe-feeding, five-calorie, shake-and-go stick packets that dissolve easily in ice water for a refreshing body-balancing boost!
But I digress. Today’s post is to tell you the amazing-ness that is the new formula of Plexus Slim. So in teacher format (um, yeah, I have written one hundred language arts books over the past two decades…so teacherish-I am!), I bring you….
As yummy and refreshing as it looks!
9 Facts About the New Plexus Slim, AKA The Pink Drink
1. Has a flavor change—new, fresher raspberry-watermelon-lemon taste
I loved the old pink drink, but some thought it was a little sweet. This was easily remedied with stronger dilution or the addition of lemon or lime. However, the new taste is amazing—light, refreshing, healthy tasting. You will love it!
2. Continues to have the original Slim properties
The benefits of the old Slim are still here! Aids in healthy glucose metabolism (blood sugar balancing). Clinically proven to aid in weight loss+. Personally, I lost and kept off weight with the original formula (even though I hadn’t previously lost a pound in three years of trying!), gained control of my cravings, went down a size quickly, slept amazingly well for the first time in two decades, and had energy galore. I didn’t want my Slim to lose those benefits—and the new one has not lost any of them!
3. Mixes thoroughly and quickly in ice cold water
I will admit that a downfall of my original, beloved pink drink was that it could be clumpy in cold water. We simply mixed ours in a little room temp water then poured that “mix” into iced water. Problem solved. But now…oh that mixability! Shake-shake-shake in a glass of iced water or cold water bottle, and you have the perfect treat every day (that is making you healthier with every sip!).
4. Provides five small calories in every stick packet
Plexus Slim was not and is still not a meal replacement. It is sweetened with stevia and made from plants. There are not enough calories in it, nor is it designed to take the place of healthy eating. Yes, the blood sugar balancing properties, prebiotic (see below), Garcinoa Cambogia for weight management+, and more help with appetite and feelings of satiety, but Slim is not a meal. (As a matter of fact, Plexus products have helped me crave fruits and vegetables like never before—it’s amazing what a body does when it is balanced with healthy supplementation!)
5. Now contains a prebiotic known as XOS (xylo Oligosaccharides) that feeds the microbiome’s good bacteria
This prebiotic, XOS, is like “Miracle Grow” for the good bacteria in the gut. We want our good bacteria to grow in order to be healthy and maintain an appropriate weight! This patent-pending formula is like no other.
I haven’t gone a day without my pink drink for eighteen months!
7. XOS feeds and increases akkermansia, a good bacteria that positively impacts a disrupted metabolism
And not just a little…..the new prebiotic in our pink drink Increases the metabolism enhancing Akkermansia microbes by 257 times◊*. This good bacteria (akkermansia) activates our metabolism. I was so excited about this new addition! Being in my mid-fifties and on a twelve year quest to lose a hundred pounds (slow learner here!), I was very familiar with the whole “disrupted metabolism”! My excitement was not premature. Within three weeks, I noticed the ease in which I could carry out my intermittent fasting each day (eating in an eight hour window and fasting in a sixteen hour window). This was revolutionary for this Nonna! 🙂
8. XOS feeds other good bacteria that contribute to overall health
Clinical studies (I am crazy about Plexus’ clinical studies!) showed that in addition to the metabolism-boosting increase of Akkermansia, the XOS in Slim increases Lactobacillus by 365 times and Bifidobacterium by 290 times. These levels contribute to overall health◊* and well being. In other words, more ingredients in our pink drink that make us feel uh-maze-ing! 🙂
9. It still makes us feel incredible!
It’s not really an old Slim and a new Slim. It’s really an enhanced Slim. Same great results as before—with some new results thrown in. I couldn’t be more thrilled with my refreshing pink drink!
*These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.
+Participants in an independent, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, human clinical study who used one pack of Slim a day lost an average of 5.45 pounds in 8 weeks, while the placebo group lost an average of 3.12 pounds. There was a trend to weight decrease with Slim group (p=0.059).
