People often ask questions about the many health benefits of the Plexus Slim and Plexus Accelerator weight loss products, often conveying a sense of disbelief that a single product set can yield so many health benefits. At BSGH, we can relate to their skepticism since there are many weight loss products on the market that make exaggerated claims, and the numbers of people who say they’ve tried this or that with no luck seems to outnumber those who have successfully lost weight. Like the old saying about the “bad apple” that spoils the bushel, these exaggerated claims made by “quick fix” products have made people overly cautious about trying even the most clinically proven therapies
So, in essence, people are afraid to take chances on safe and effective health approaches – therefore remaining “stuck” in an unhealthy state. At BSGH, we hope to explain as clearly and completely as we can the multiple health benefits one can expect to see from the synergistic formulas of Plexus Slim and Plexus Accelerator, and identify the botanicals used to successfully achieve these results.
What are the benefits most often experienced from Plexus Slim and Accelerator customers? When used as part of a daily hydration regimen (1 stick pack per day), Plexus Slim promotes: Loss of weight and inches by burning fat – not muscle, Healthy blood sugar levels, Healthy cholesterol and lipid levels, Healthy will power over food choices, Free radical scavenging (reduces oxidative stress), and more! Plexus Slim is safe, non-stimulatory and non-thermogenic, and Diabetic friendly!! Check out the video below to hear from Dave Brown, the scientist responsible for formulating this all-natural product set.
The Plexus Slim and Accelerator products were designed as companion products, but can also be used alone. Leveraging the research and experience of one of the world’s largest natural ingredient compounder, Plexus Slim harnesses the beneficial essence of 2 plant extract concentrates, and provides proven effectiveness in slimming. The two principle active ingredients in Plexus Slim are derivatives of chlorogenic acid and oxypregnane steroidal glycoside. The new Plexus Accelerator capsule provides a healthy way to speed up weight loss and/or break a weight plateau when taking Plexus Slim. The combination of ingredients in these two products works synergistically to help people lose weight.
Among other benefits, these two products have demonstrated the following benefits;
- Help with weight loss
- Help to balance blood sugar
- Help to lower bad cholesterol
- Help maintain healthy blood pressure
- Help control the appetite and prevent food cravings
- Help strengthen will-power over poor food choices
- Help boost energy levels
- Help maintain long-term weight loss
As you can see, the benefits are numerous and, quite frankly, pretty amazing. So it’s understandable to encounter some skepticism when discussing the Plexus weight loss products and program. However, as natural health professionals with a greater understanding of the power of botanicals (a.k.a., plant extracts, botanical medicines, or phytomedicines) – and the right kind of formula – it’s easier for BSGH to accept and appreciate the power of the Plexus products. Because the success (or failure) of botanical products rely heavily on the synergistic influences of the individual ingredients, the “formula” or recipe of plant-extracts is critical to the effectiveness of the product. This is primarily due to the fact that botanical components may display synergistic or antagonistic influences on one another, thus strengthening (or weakening) the desired effect. The formula behind Plexus Slim & Accelerator is based on many years of research, and has been recognized as one of the safest and most effective formulas on the market.

How your body processes sugar (glucose) plays a vital role in maintaining a healthy weight. While some people have optimal sugar-burning processes, others find themselves challenged in breaking down ingested sugars, managing the glucose levels in the blood, and getting the glucose into the cells where it is used for energy (rather than stored as fat!). Multiple processes have to work properly in order to effectively process sugar in your body. This is the underlying focus when working with Diabetics, which is why the Plexus products are much more effective in weight loss than other products. Remember, Plexus Slim was originally formulated to help Type 2 Diabetics control their blood sugar.

Cholesterol is a type of fat made by your liver and carried in your blood. You also get cholesterol from certain foods. Cholesterol readings measure your total blood cholesterol levels and your levels of the two main types of cholesterol, LDL and HDL. LDL is known as “bad” cholesterol because it carries cholesterol from the liver to the rest of the body. When too much LDL is in the blood, it becomes plaque along the artery walls which can lead to heart attacks and/or stroke. HDL is known as the “good” cholesterol because it carries cholesterol out of the blood and into the liver for elimination. The higher your HDL level, the more cholesterol can leave your body thus lowering your risk of cardiovascular disease.

Your weight and your blood pressure are closely related. When weight increases, blood pressure often does too. Achieving a healthy weight is a major factor in preventing and controlling high blood pressure. Excess weight increases one’s risk of obtaining high blood pressure by 2 to 6 times! A 1998 study involving more than 82,000 woman found that women who gained 11 to 22 pounds during adulthood had a 70% increase in risk for high blood pressure compared with women who didn’t gain weight after age 18. What’s the link? When you gain weight, you gain mostly fatty tissue which requires additional oxygen and nutrients to survive, thus increasing the demand for more blood to bring those nutrients to the tissue. The more fatty tissue, the more demand for nutrients, which mean more blood supply, which in turn increases the amount of blood circulating through the body. This adds pressure against the arterial walls which can be measured as an increase in blood pressure.
 Mayo Clinic on High Blood Pressure, Sheldon Sheps, M.D., copyright 1999.
Another reason blood pressure commonly increases in overweight people is that additional weight typically increases the level of insulin in the blood, which is associated with retention of sodium and water, which increases blood volume and leads to an increase in blood pressure. Lastly, excess weight can increase your heart rate as your heart beats faster to adjust to the demands of a larger body. However, the capacity of your blood vessels to transport the increased blood supply may not be able to keep up. This also increases arterial pressure. As you can see, excess weight can significantly impact blood pressure.

While it’s not possible to physically shrink the stomach beyond its normal size without surgery, it is, however, possible to feel full eating less food – which is generally the aim in wanting a smaller stomach. The way to accomplish this effect is to train your body to get used to accommodating smaller meals. “Eating less won’t shrink your stomach”, says Mark Moyad, MD, director of preventive and alternative medicine at the University of Michigan Medical Center in Ann Arbor, “but it can help to reset your appetite thermostat so you won’t feel as hungry, and it may be easier to stick with your eating plan”. Training your body to feel satisfied with smaller portions is an important objective in successful weight loss programs – and something that leads to long-term success.

One of the biggest habits we usually need to adjust in order to lose weight is our portion sizes. Today’s super sizing of food servings has really hindered many people’s weight loss efforts. Managing your portion sizes is one of the most important ways to lose excess weight.

People who have tried different weight loss programs have all heard the warnings “In order to lose weight and maintain your ideal weight once you reach it, you are going to have to change your eating habits. We’re talking about a lifetime change, not just a change for a few weeks.” For most, that sounds so intimidating. However, in order to maintain your ideal weight after you achieve your goal, you will have to make better choices about what and how you eat. If you don’t, you may lose the weight then go back to your old eating habits and gain it back. Luckily, Plexus Slim & Accelerator help to re-program the body to make better choices, thus helping customers lose weight and KEEP IT OFF!
Another component in the weight loss formula is Metabolism. Metabolism is the rate at which your body creates energy by breaking down nutrients and converting them to energy that can be used by the body. In the process, it burns calories. Your resting metabolism is the number of calories required to keep your body “living” and breathing, and all the organs processing “normally”. This can also be referred to as your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) or the rate at which your body burns calories while at rest. The goal for people who want to maintain their current weight, fitness experts say, is to adjust your calorie intake to equal that of your BMR – making the calories you ingest equal to the calories you burn. While that concept has much merit in weight management, it’s not the whole answer to weight loss. Digestion, glucose management, elimination of waste and other processes must also function properly in order to lose weight. However, for the sake of completing our weight loss analysis, we’ll switch our discussion to energy, metabolism, your BMR, and caloric expenditures.
While everyone’s metabolism works the same way, the rate at which it metabolizes nutrients is unique to every individual. Some people are blessed with “high metabolisms” (which means they burn a lot of calories without really trying!), while others suffer from “slow metabolisms” often feeling lethargic and struggling with weight gain. Many factors affect your metabolism, including things you can control (i.e., stress levels, thyroid conditions), and things you can’t (i.e., age). Aging in particular has a noticeable impact on your metabolism, due to changes in hormone balance. That doesn’t mean aging makes weight gain inevitable. A 2001 study by the USDA Agricultural Research Service showed that older people can significantly improve their metabolism and fend of weight gain by participating in strength training (using weights or other resistance) exercise because both exercise and strength training can help build muscle mass. Muscle burns calories more efficiently than fat; the more muscle you have in relation to your body fat, the higher your metabolism will be.

As we discussed above; Everyone gains (and losses) weight for different reasons. But one thing remains fairly constant, and that’s the way our bodies work inside. We all have the same digestive processes – but whether or not they work properly is a different story. Similarly, we all process consumed sugar (blood glucose) the same way, but some people’s process is “broken” (Diabetes). In summary, we all share the same bodily processes, but our processes may work differently from one another. So helping someone maintain long-term weight loss requires you to address their specific cause(es) of weight gain – and take a total body approach to permanent weight loss.
