What is Plexus Slim ®?
Slim is the delicious way to promote overall health and lose weight. Slim supports healthy glucose metabolism and helps good microbes thrive which keeps your gut microbiome healthy.*
When is the best time to drink Slim ®?
If you want to lose weight, drink Slim 30 minutes before a meal. If you want to support your gut microbiome, enjoy Slim at any time of the day! Simply pour one packet of Slim into a glass of water or water bottle, mix, and enjoy!
How much water should I use with Slim?
Each packet of Slim can be mixed into 12-20 ounces of water.
Should Slim be added to hot or cold water?
Slim is meant to be a refreshing drink, and its best added to cold water. We don’t recommend adding Slim to hot water, as hot water could affect the stability of Slim’s green coffee extract, making it less effective.
Can you tell me about the new study that was done on Slim?
We wanted to see what Slim can really do, so we put it through rigorous, testing procedures. In a highly advanced, in vitro study created to mimic the human gastrointestinal system, Slim’s powerful microbiome activating formula was tested, which produced astounding results. ◊*
Here’s what the scientists found:
- Increases friendly microbes called Akkermansia– a remarkable microbe, which positively impacts disrupted metabolism associated with being overweight by 250 times. ◊*
- Increases Lactobacillus by 365 times and Bifidobacterium by 290 times- microbes that contribute to your overall health. ◊*
- Increases Butyrate by up to 58% and Propionate by up to 29%- Short-chain fatty acids that help regulate your metabolism. ◊*
What is the prebiotic in Plexus Slim and how is it beneficial to me?
Xylooligosaccharides (XOS), Slim’s incredible prebiotic, is a fiber that friendly microbes love to eat. XOS has been clinically shown to improve intestinal microflora for enhanced health and well-being. In a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study conducted by researchers at the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA), daily doses of XOS (as low as 1 gram) were found to significantly improve gut microbiota balance, promoting growth of more species of good gut microbes, while reducing bad microbes, thereby, promoting intestinal health.*
What is a prebiotic? How does it work?
Your gut is full of microbes. Some of them are good; some of them are bad. Prebiotics are non-digestible fibers that make their way through our digestive system and help good microbes grow and flourish. Prebiotics are non-absorbable fibers like fructo-, xylo- and oligo-saccharides, and inulin, which can be found naturally occurring in whole grains, chicory root, onions, leeks, fruits and legumes. Prebiotics act as a fertilizer, selectively feeding good microbes in the gut and assisting in their growth. This leads to benefits for your overall well-being and health. Nearly everyone needs prebiotics to experience optimal health, particularly those who don’t get enough from their diet.*
Have we enhanced the high quality of ingredients in Slim?
Absolutely. The ingredients in the new Slim were specifically qualified by our in-house Quality Assurance department using world-class quality standards. Each material is rigorously tested for purity and potency by Plexus Worldwide® before ever being selected for use. The difference in this hands-on approach and dedication to ingredient quality ensures that you can feel confident in the purity and potency of Slim’s quality ingredients.
Do I need to keep taking Slim to keep the microbiome benefits?
If you stop drinking Plexus Slim every day, the improvements in your gut can start to disappear in as little as a week. So it’s best to take Slim every day.
Will I experience any side effects when I start drinking Slim?
Experiencing side effects of prebiotic supplementation in Slim is very unusual. However, in certain people, supplementing with prebiotics could cause temporary gas and bloating. One way to avoid this is to begin by taking only a small amount of prebiotic (e.g., a half pack of Slim) and then gradually increasing your intake over 1 to 3 weeks. Your gut microbes should adapt to prebiotic supplementation over time, which will help relieve any discomfort.*
Is there a clinical study on Slim for weight loss?
Yes! Plexus Slim has been scientifically demonstrated to promote weight loss. In a double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized study of 175 subjects, Slim helped study participants lose weight.1*
If I’m not trying to lose weight, will I still benefit from taking Slim?
Absolutely! Plexus Slim is a delicious health drink with amazing microbiome benefits. Even if you are not looking to lose weight, Slim delivers prebiotics that promotes the growth of good gut microbes and supports a healthy glucose metabolism. You are drinking your way to a healthier and happier gut!*

Can I take Plexus Slim with other Plexus products?
Absolutely! Slim is a great addition to any Plexus regimen. We highly recommend using it with ProBio 5 and Bio Cleanse in our TriPlex combo. The effects of this combination are very beneficial to your overall health, and helps you lose weight.*
Is Akkermansia in Slim or already in your gut?
Akkermansia is a beneficial bacterium that is already present in your gut. Plexus Slim’s formula with XOS helps feed good microbes and has been shown to increase Akkermansia levels by up to 250 times.◊*
Is the mulberry extract mixed with the raspberry, lemon, and watermelon to create the flavor profile?
While mulberry extract is not part of the flavor profile, it is in both the original and new Slim. Mulberry extract is considered a superfood and is a potent antioxidant.
What are the natural flavors in Plexus Slim?
The natural flavors in Plexus Slim are raspberry, lemon, and watermelon.
If I’m allergic to raspberry, lemon, and watermelon can I still drink Plexus Slim?
Plexus uses flavors that are extracted from actual fruit. Typically, the proteins that could cause an allergic reaction would be removed during extraction. The possibility of an allergic reaction is very small; however, we recommend that if you have an allergy to any of these fruits, please consult your physician prior to use.
