Plexus Slim is an all-natural health product originally designed to help regulate blood glucose levels in diabetics. Common results for diabetics are the ability to take less insulin due to a combination of fewer blood sugar spikes and improved pancreatic function in type 2 diabetics. Based on the feed-back from people who are taking Plexus Slim, we are hearing that four pretty consistent things are occurring after starting the Slim:
- first, people say they feel calmer
throughout the day;
- second, people tell us they are
sleeping much better at night:
- third, people notice their appetites are
- fourth, people tell us that they
aren’t snacking as often; some have told us their snacking, especially sweets
like chocolate and candy, has totally stopped.
The Slim is a crystal light type packet that you mix in a bottle of water. It can be taken before or after your meal once or twice a day. Most people only need to take Plexus Slim once a day to get the desired results. However, people who struggle with weight loss or people who have a lot of weight to lose, may find that taking Plexus Slim twice a day works better for them.
The Accelerator does just that; it Accelerates! It gives you that extra boost you need. It is intended to jump-start your diet. I suggest laying off the Accelerator every 4th week or on the weekends. Our bodies are miraculous creations and can adjust for just about anything. We need to "trick" our bodies, if you will.
Do you suffer from sugar cravings, inexplicable fatigue, bloating, anxiety or a “brain fog”? If you answered yes to even one of these symptoms you need to take the easy in-home saliva test. These symptoms may be the result of an overabundance of Candida. The ProBio5 assists with the reduction of Candida.
What is the saliva test?
First thing in the morning spit into a glass of water. If your spit remains floating in a nice, cohesive “blob”, you’re probably pretty much Candida-free. However, if after a few minutes, your spit begins to develop long strand-like tendrils that dissolve down into the water, or if your spit spreads out over the surface of the water, you probably have a Candida condition.
Candida is the short name used to describe yeast overgrowth in the body. The technical term is Candidiasis. Like their “cousins” the molds, they live all around us. One family “Candida Albicans” lives in all mucus membranes, i.e. intestines, eyes, ears, bladder, stomach, lungs, vagina, etc. It is one of the billions of other friendly organisms that serve a useful purpose in the body. One of its important functions is to recognize and destroy harmful bacteria. However, candida is not intended to overgrow and get out of control while the body is alive. This is only intended to happen when the body dies, when it’s function and characteristics change in order to break down the body.

What Causes Candida to Get Out of Control?
A healthy immune system keeps Candida in balance with the other micro-organisms in the mucous membranes but under certain conditions it begins to overgrow and get out of control. The causes of immune system dysfunction are varied and complex, but antibiotics are the biggest culprits because they wipe out friendly micro-organisms, in the digestive system. Because Candida is resistant to antibiotics the imbalance of micro-organisms allows it to take over. It begins to change its shape and starts to overgrow; raising large families called colonies.These colonies excrete toxins that circulate throughout the body further weakening the immune system and creating havoc throughout the body. The Candida produces very long root-like structures that penetrate intestinal walls leaving microscopic holes which allows toxins, undigested food particles, bacteria and yeast to enter the bloodstream. This condition is known as the “Leaky Gut Syndrome”, which causes food allergies and many health problems. These root-like structures also causes considerable damage to the walls of the intestines resulting in malabsorption of nutrients.Adding to the problem of malabsorption are nutritional deficiencies that also weaken the immune system.Today’s standard diet lacks the necessary nutrients to maintain a healthy immune system. It is loaded with sugar, carbohydrates, hydrogenated oils and fats (trans-fats), white flour products, processed foods, food additives, preservatives, pesticides, and heavy metals. This, in addition to foods being irradiated (exposed to high levels of radiation to extend shelf life), and being grown in nutrient depleted soil, long storage and transportation time, and improper handling, cooking and microwaving that goes on in most homes, further depletes nutrients available. All of these factors contribute to a weakened immune system.
The Healing Crisis is brought about when the body becomes overcrowded with waste and toxins. Cells and tissues begin to throw off the waste and carry it from the bloodstream to various eliminating organs including the bowels, kidneys, lungs, skin, nasal passages, ears, throat, and genital organs. These organs in turn become congested and irritated producing symptoms such as colds, boils, kidney and bladder infections, headaches, open sores, diarrhea and fevers.Die-off symptoms are caused by high numbers of yeast being killed off which releases a high number toxins into the system. In medical terms this is called the Herxheimer’s reaction, or yeast die-off phenomenon. Die-off symptoms resembles the flu and can be very uncomfortable.
To help rid your body of these toxins, so they don't just sit in your gut, Plexus has theBioCleanse. Plexus Bio-Cleanse oxygenates and energizes your body while detoxifying and cleansing wastes, pathogens and plaque in the gastrointestinal tract, colon, arteries, blood, etc. As the material reaches the stomach’s acid environment and continues into the bloodstream, the vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid) and bioflavonoid complex break the magnesium peroxide bond releasing the ozone and peroxides, softening the intestinal and arterial plaque, and killing pathogenic microbes throughout the body. The ozone and peroxides further breakdown into oxygen which continues to purify and energize all cells in the body. As the liquefied plaques and dead pathogens move toward leaving the body, the magnesium creates a colon flushing reaction, increasing bowel activity and preventing re-absorption of the toxins.
As stated earlier, if you do not take the BioCleanse, these toxins will be left inside of your gut. I strongly suggest using theProBio5 and the BioCleanse together. These products really go hand-in-hand.
