Hey friends! So in December of last year, I started Plexus out of a desperate NEED to “just feel better”. I had so many health issues and annoyances that 1. I had not dealt with before or 2. I had kept at bay before, but no longer could. I had seen Plexus here and there, and had actually tried it before briefly, when I was looking for a quick fix for weight loss (because who hasn’t been there at one time or another?). I tried it, for 2 weeks, didn’t see any weight loss, and quit.
But in the way that many people will roll their eyes, and yes, guilty…I have done that too, a sweet acquaintance that I had on Facebook, was always posting about Plexus. I would like her posts quite often, and would occasionally comment. Then one day she posted something that strongly caught my eye. It was a random post about health issues you may be more inclined to if you were born by C-Section and how Plexus could help you. Since I am seriously a closet nerd and lover of anything about science, mysteries, and especially another piece to the ‘Why You Are The Way You Are’ puzzle of life, I completely stopped scrolling dead in my finger tracks to read, not only the post, but the comments. As you may have guessed, I was a C-Section baby. But never before had I known that the miracle way that I, and thousands of others were/are born, had any affect on my adult health.
For whatever reason, that post did it for me, and the next time my friend and I talked, she was letting me know about joining a 1 week sample group, but I just said, “You know what..let’s just do the whole thing.” And it’s been history since then.
Now let me tell you, I signed up as an Ambassador, mainly to get the product discount for myself, but also for the sake of IF this actually worked for me, I’d be able to share these products with other people to help them with their physical battle! Because anyone who has ever struggled with a physical issue, knows that it can become something that has the power to not only affect, but consume you! That was me.
So I’m almost 9 months into taking Plexus, and I feel like a whole different person! I haven’t tried everything, but I have tried most of the products and stay stocked up on my favorites. So just for fun, here are my top 5 favorite Plexus products!
So I DO need to tell you, because I completely believe in honesty and transparency…I have not gotten “slim” on Plexus Slim. I’m sure my other Plexus friends are cringing as they read this, because that’s just not the way to sell a product called “slim.” But nonetheless, you see that it is my number one item that I love and use daily! Why is that? Because what is life if you’re not skinny? If you just asked that, I’d love to have a nice long heart to heart with you about life and all that it is, when being slim isn’t the number one focus. 🙂 Ok! moving on! I love Slim because it gives me an internal boost! Not like a shot of espresso, but like a revitalizing sensation. It helps with mental and emotional clarity, boosts mood, and gives natural energy. It also is the happy factor to a good, regular natural digestive system. Let me go ahead and say that TONS of people lose weight with Slim. And it did help me lose an initial 5-10 pounds, it just didn’t get me all the way to my weight loss goal. It is all natural, tastes great, and is physically refreshing. This drink keeps me going and refreshed for all the #momlife and just #reallife ups and downs that are a part of my day to day. And happiest of all…it’s pink!
Plexus Slim with Hunger Control
I love this product for all the same reasons as the original Plexus Slim! (see above) It has a similar, but different flavor. Where the original Plexus is a mix of raspberry, lemon, and watermelon flavors, this one is a citrus goodness with grapefruit, lemon, and lime. Most definitely refreshing! If you are a product of the instant gratification culture, I’ll let you know that it does take a little more patience to mix it and break up the clumps. But the 30 extra second are totally worth it ;). Since I’ve never been very good at a strict supplement and meal time system, I’m glad to have the two options of the original Slim, and the Slim with Hunger Control. Basically, when I know that I’ll be eating at a certain time, or if I know that I need a little something to hold me over, I will go for this one! For example. I always get hungry during church. It never fails. I’m up earlier to get everyone ready, I usually don’t eat breakfast before heading out the door, 10:30 hits mid-sermon, my stomach is growling, and I’m distracted. Get behind me Satan! No more church distraction stomach growling…if that’s not reason enough, I don’t know what is 😉 It is also pink 🙂
The X Factor Multivitamin
So I was really into this multivitamin for the noticeable feel good factor it gave me. And duh, getting my daily vitamins. Then it hit a new level when I saw someone post that they take this multivitamin EVEN as their prenatal vitamin :O So let’s rewind. When I was pregnant, I was a prenatal health and vitamin freak. When I found the perfect prenatal vitamin, I bragged and bragged about it and tried to convince every pregnant or wannabe pregnant lady I knew that they needed.this.vitamin. So when my friend posted her cute picture of her XFactor as a prenatal. Serious eyebrow raise over here. “Nothing could be better than myyyy prenatal.” I thought. But, as I mentioned before, I have a slight issue with wanting to know the scientific, factual answer for things that can be answered. My 2 favorite vitamins. Which one would prevail? And could a “regular ol'” multivitamin really be as good as a prenatal. The answer: to my dismay, then to my excitement, was yes! And with one less pill per serving!
This, y’all…is my secret weapon. This is my gsd (get “stuff” done) fuel. I am on a deep internal journey of practicing balance, organization, and minimizing chaos, so I don’t actually take this every day (thanks to all my other great Plexus products). But then there are those days…Oh, mommas y’all know the days! Everything’s a mess, someone’s coming over, too much to do, the dog just got in the trash, not enough hours, or you just can’t focus long enough to know where to even start! I’m speaking to mom’s here because that’s my life and my happy place. But this product is probably most beneficial for all the working men and women who are perpetually tired! You work all day, then come home with to-do lists that never quite get crossed off. I have been there before too! With the risk of sounding too bold, I would possibly still be a working mom if I had this product a couple years ago! Let me stop here and tell you that I love coffee & tea & 5 hour energy & non carbonated energy drinks & (when I was working) basically anything else that said it had Vitamin B complex or caffeine in it. I have lived the majority of my adult life DESPERATE for energy, all the while knowing the constant intake of energy boosting drinks weren’t actually good for me. The pendulum swing of either exhausted or jittery and on edge is never, ever a good way to live. But, Plexus Edge gives you that extra oomph of energy WITHOUT the jitters and WITHOUT the crash! Not only does it give you energy, but it has a focus component to it as well. I’ve thought I was A.D.D. for a very long time but just don’t like going to the doctor. With lack of better words, this supplement makes me feel like I don’t need other medication.
I’d like to introduce my happy pill! My all natural probiotic happy pill to be exact–Vital Biome. Did you know that anxiety and depression are also linked to gut health? I didn’t know that either! But as someone who struggled with both anxiety & depression, I had to give this a try. Grouped with my other products, I could really start to tell an overall difference in my daily mood, and ability to cope with situations that would have previously been too much for me. I am not a doctor, and this is not a prescription. But if you struggle any way in these areas, you should give this a try!
Ok! so there you have my top 5 with a quick reason why I love them. But what I haven’t mentioned is that these are not ALL of my favorites! I guarantee if you ask another Plexus person, their top 5 would look similar, yet different. These are just great feel good products. I’d love to hear your questions, and can definitely give you more info about something that caught your attention. Comment or message me on Instagram or Facebook, or just visit my Plexus page for yourself to take a look around. Let’s get you started on your journey to health & happiness!
