I was diagnosed with diabetes 25 years ago and I had to start using Insulin and Metformin to regulate my blood sugar level. Soon after I was put on the medications, I started gaining weight gradually, to the point where I was forced to go on a drastic diet to lose the extra weight that caused high blood pressure. I followed a weight loss diet for 10 months and lost 100 pounds, but then the diet stopped working. Instead of losing weight or at least stay at keeping the weight I reached with hard work, I began gaining weight on a 500 calorie diet. You heard me right, I was on a 500 calorie diet and I was gaining weight. I was desperate and hungry all the time.

Then a friend told my wife about Plexus Slim, and how she was losing weight on it. There are so many fad diet and products out there, so naturally, I was skeptical and wondered if it would be safe to use. I did my research and I found out that the Plexus Slim products contain only natural ingredients such as:

Chlorogenic Acid – A phenolic natural product isolated from the leaves and fruits of dicotyledonous plants, including the coffee bean. It is widely used in many fields like food, feed additives, and cosmetics.

Citrin K- Citrin is a trademarked name for a standardized herbal extract from the rind of the fruit of the Garcinia cambogia plant. Garcinia cambogia reduces the conversion of carbohydrates into stored fat by inhibiting certain enzyme processes. When less fat is available for use and slowed down, the body burns calories at an accelerated pace. They experienced curbed appetite and less tendency to “nibble,” and an increase in energy.

Alpha Lipoic Acid – Alpha Lipoic Acid (also known as lipoic acid, thioctic acid, or ALA) is one of the good fatty acids produced in every one of our cells. One of its main functions is to help convert glucose (blood sugar) into energy. ALA is manufactured by the body and is found in small amounts in several foods. These include spinach, broccoli, peas, Brewer’s yeast, Brussels sprouts, rice bran, potatoes and organ meats (kidney, heart and liver) Besides taking ALA for its general benefits as an antioxidant, studies have shown that alpha lipoic acid can help with the following conditions:

• Hypertension (High Blood Pressure) • Coronary Heart Disease • Metabolic Syndrome (high blood pressure and elevated cholesterol• Peripheral Neuropathy (caused by diabetes and other conditions, such as Lymedisease, alcoholism, shingles, thyroid disease and kidney failure) • Diabetes (improving glucose metabolism and helping diabetics utilize insulin better)• Liver Disease• Metastatic Pancreatic Cancer (increasing long-term survival)• Impaired Brain Function (as a treatment for stroke and other brain disorders involving free radical damage, including Alzheimer’s disease) • Effects of Aging (improving blood flow and enhancing immune function, restoring levels of glutathione, a protective antioxidant and detoxification compound)• Degenerative Diseases (ALA is a strong anti-inflammatory agent)Glaucoma and Cataracts

Chromium – is a trace mineral that assists with burning carbohydrates and fat. It helps provide blood sugar to cells and may increase sensitivity to insulin, potentially helping to curb cravings for sweets and carbohydrates. Because of the role it plays in the metabolism, chromium is commonly added to natural weight-loss products. Chromium is naturally found in foods like yeast, mushrooms, prunes, and broccoli. It is sometimes added to drinking water.

Polydextrose – is frequently used as an ingredient in low-carb, sugar-free, and diabetic cooking recipes. It is also used as a thickening agent. Polydextrose is a form of soluble fiber and has shown healthful prebiotic benefits when tested in animals. It contains only 1 kcal per gram and, therefore, is able to help reduce calories.

Citric Acid – Citric acid is a weak organic acid. It is a natural preservative/conservative and is also used to add an acidic, or sour, taste to foods and soft drinks

Beet Root Extract – Beet Root is a potent and nutritious source of natural energy and vitality. It is a great way to purify and build healthy blood and normalize the pH balance in our bodies.

Stevia Extract – Stevia is derived from natural substances, unlike other sugar substitutes, such as Equal or Nutrisweet. Stevia extract is approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration as a dietary supplement and for use in food.

Lo Han Extract – Lo Han Kuo is the fruit of Momordica grosvenorii, a plant cultivated in the mountains of southern China. Mogrosides, which are water extracted from the Lo Han fruit, offer a pleasant, sweet taste without elevating blood sugar.

After learning about the ingredients and feeling confident that it wouldn’t hurt me, I started using the Plexus Slim and to my utter surprise, within 6 weeks I lost 10 pounds and 22 inches from thighs, hips, waist, chest and arms without suffering from the cruel diet and hunger. This experience gave me wings to continue.

Furthermore, Plexus Slim normalized my blood sugar, and maximized my metabolism. I achieved all that with a simple drink that tastes like cherry Kool-Aid. In 6 weeks my blood sugar level plummeted from average 160, (while still using Metformin and Insulin) to an astounding 110! And, it’s staying there! I haven’t seen a high (even after eating a candy bar) over 130.

Today, I no longer have to use insulin.  What I’m also happy about is that the high blood pressure and the migraines that kept me in bed for the last 5 years are gone as well, thanks to this product.
