So, you want to know Whats in Plexus slim and how it works?

 

Plexus Slim is a weight loss diet, created mostly for women. The company claims that you’ll see the result within 2 weeks, but is it really true? I’m not sure. Why? Let’s find out how it works and what it does.

If we talk about the ingredients they are:

  • Chromium (as chromium polynicotinate). It is used to stabilize and increase in blood sugar.
  • Green Coffee Bean Extract (chlorogenic acid and less than 2% caffeine): It’s Chlorogenic Acids are meant to work like caffeine, it is used to reduce carbohydrates.
  • Garcinia Cambogia Fruit Extract: This fruit is found in tropical regions and it is known to reduce weight. This is the only one ingredient that is proven to have weight loss effect in
  • Han-Guo Fruit Extract: A fruit found in parts of China and Thailand that is 300 times sweeter than sugar.

    Chromium benefits:

    • Chromium helps to move blood sugar (glucose) from the bloodstream into the cells to be used as energy and to turn fats, carbohydrates, and proteins into energy.
    • Chromium may help some people with type 2 diabetes. It may help them control their blood sugar and may play a role in the management of type 2 diabetes. But more studies are needed to know how well it really works.
    • Chromium supplements are promoted as being helpful in building muscle and burning fat and in helping the body use carbohydrates. But this has not been proved.
    • Chromium may affect the eyes. There is a link between low chromium levels and increased risk of glaucoma.
    • Chromium slows the loss of calcium, so it may help prevent bone loss in women during menopause.

    • Helps with: High blood pressure. Early research suggests that taking green coffee extracts containing 50 mg to 140 mg of chlorogenic acids daily for 4 weeks to 12 weeks can reduce blood pressure.
    • Helps with: Obesity. Early research shows that adults with obesity who take a specific green coffee extract (Svetol, Naturex) five times daily for 8 weeks to 12 weeks, either alone or together with the regular coffee product Coffee Slender, lose an average of 2.5 to 3.7 kg more weight than people taking a placebo or regular coffee by itself.

    Garcinia cambogia fruit extract benefits:

    • Helps with: Exercise performance. Taking a chemical compound found in Garcinia called hydroxycitric acid (HCA) might increase how long untrained women are able to exercise. However, it does not seem benefit men in the same way.
    • Helps with: Weight loss. Research on the effect of Garcinia on weight loss is inconsistent. Some research shows that taking Garcinia extract that contains 50% hydroxycitric acid (HCA) for 8-12 weeks doesn’t decrease fat breakdown or energy expenditure in overweight people. However, other research suggests that it might improve weight loss when taken for 12 weeks.
