Plexus Lean.......|| Call Linda get your's today!


Achieve your nutritional goals with the help of Plexus Lean
Life is busy and eating healthy isn’t easy. That’s why we created Lean, a 100% vegetarian meal replacement that is a nutritious full meal or protein-packed snack. Its rich, smooth chocolate mocha taste is free from common allergens (soy, dairy and gluten) and artificial ingredients.
Do you ever drink protein smoothies for breakfast? 🧐
I have been replacing one meal a day for the past month with a brand new protein powder called Lean. I love this product because it contains 24 vitamins and minerals, digestive enzymes, prebiotic fiber, and it actually tastes delicious😋 (not gritty/chalky like many protein powders). It is 100% vegetarian and its main source of protein is PEA PROTEIN!! I have more energy, am full longer, and without changing anything.🎉
Here are some amazing facts about pea protein:
It’s a great non dairy muscle builder💪🏻😳
Pea protein powder is becoming a fast favorite for gym-goers and health-conscious people alike ( like me😍) — not only is it gluten- and dairy-free, but it’s been proven to be spectacular for your kidneys and heart❤️
Why would I recommend using a supplementary protein powder? Here are the facts. Lean has caused me to change my opinion on meal replacements and shakes.
With a balanced, superfood-rich diet, you can theoretically consume enough protein foods to keep your body in great condition. 

5 Pea Protein Benefits🌟
Pea Protein has a great amino acid profile, including a lot of the branched-chain amino acids that are well-known for decreasing muscle breakdown after workouts. But muscles aren’t the only part of your body that benefit from pea protein! Here are five benefits you’ll reap by incorporating pea protein powder into your diet.
1. Aids Weight Loss
As with all good protein powders, pea protein is a handy tool in your arsenal of weight loss weapons. Especially if you’re looking to lose weight fast, introducing protein is one of the best ways to do it.
It’s common for people trying to lose weight to neglect protein intake — which generally means they don’t actually lose much weight. However, getting between 0.7 and one gram per pound you weigh of protein each day causes you to build muscle and burn fat faster.
Another great feature of pea protein is its ability to lower levels of the hunger hormone, ghrelin. Your stomach secretes ghrelin when it’s empty to tell your brain that you’re hungry. Pea protein produces a great number of peptides that delay the emptying of your stomach and secretion of ghrelin. In fact, pea protein matches dairy-based proteins in its ability to help you feel full for longer🎉
2. Supports a Healthy Heart
Not only is pea protein good for your weight, but it’s proven to support a healthy heart. In 2009, Canadian scientists found that pea protein lowers high blood pressure. The rats in the study showed a 20 percent decrease in blood pressure over the course of just eight weeks of pea protein treatment.
In another study published in the American Journal of Epidemiology, researchers found that intake over time of plant-based proteins, rather than animal-based proteins, decreased the risk of coronary heart disease (CHD). If you are at any sort of risk for heart problems, the best thing you can do is to eat foods that reduce inflammation and avoid the opposite. Inflammation is the cause of almost every major heart disease, and CHD is not excluded from that list.
3. May Decrease Risk of Kidney Disease
The study in Canada that proved pea protein lowers high blood pressure was intended to determine the effects of pea protein on chronic kidney disease (CKD). Although they couldn’t say exactly why, researchers stated that pea protein consumption could actually delay or prevent the onset of CKD. For patients already diagnosed, pea protein’s ability to regulate blood pressure levels poses a significant benefit, because many CKD-related deaths are due to cardiovascular complications, as CKD is associated with increased blood pressure.
What’s fascinating about this particular study is that it was discovered that peas themselves do not provide these same benefits — it’s only the protein isolate extracted and activated with special enzymes that proved to be so useful.
4. Increases Muscle Thickness💪🏻
A common misunderstanding about vegetable-based proteins is that they don’t have the same effect on muscle growth and muscle recovery after workouts as dairy-based whey proteins. However, that’s not true at all! A 2015 study published in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition proved pea protein increase muscle thickness just as potently as dairy-based proteins.
The source of this muscle growth is probably the high quantities of l-arginine in pea protein, which are found in higher concentrations than in other protein products.Arginine — and l-arginine — is a conditional amino acid that helps you to build muscle. Conditional amino acids are those not produced by your body that aren’t necessary except in times of stress or illness. However, consuming these amino acids during healthy times certainly doesn’t hurt!
5. Regulates Blood Sugar🌸
Certain ingredients in food affect the way those foods raise your blood glucose levels. A study conducted by the University of Toronto’s Department of Nutritional Sciences tested the effects of pea protein on food intake, glucose levels and appetite in healthy young men. While the addition of pea protein didn’t change food intake or appetite, the blood glucose levels of subjects stayed lower than they normally would. This suggests pea protein can be considered a value-added ingredient, and when added to other foods, it can improve glycemic control.
Pea Protein’s Amino Acid Profile
Because of the varied types of soy and the confusion often surrounding protein powders, there tends to be a lot of different opinions about the assortment of amino acids in different types of proteins and what is necessary. Many people think that soy is the only vegetable-based protein with a complete amino acid profile. However, that’s not the case. Brown rice protein sports a complete load of amino acids but is a bit low in lysine in comparison to whey protein, while casein protein has a lower level of branched-chain amino acids.
Pea protein has a nearly complete profile, although there are a couple of nonessential (amino acids your body already produces) and conditional amino acids missing. Plexus has added leucine to Lean to complete the amino acid profile
Pea protein contains about five more grams of protein per serving than whey protein — so it really can be great for building muscle, burning fat and boosting heart health.
So, are you ready to jump?
My super charged, yummy, high fiber, high protein breakfast:
4 frozen strawberries
2 handfuls of spinach
8-10 ounces almond milk or coconut milk
2 scoops Lean
Blend and drink!!
So good!!!

Ingredient Glossary



Naturally Sourced Ingredients

Naturally sourced ingredients are derived from plant, algal, fungal, bacterial, or animal material or minerals that have been isolated, extracted of concentrated from the original source materials using minimal processing, such that they have the same chemical identity as the source material. Minimal processing to obtain these naturally sourced ingredients can include pressing, steaming, chopping, grinding, and concentrating, just to name a few. For example, beets can be boiled and the beet juice removed and dried into a powder. This beet powder is high in the natural colouring pigments betanin which produces a reddish powder that can provide naturally sourced colour to a product.
Scientifically Formulated Ingredients
Sometimes, a sufficiently concentrated source of an ingredient cannot be found in nature, nor can it be derived from natural sources. In these instances, advances in nutritional technology allow us to use highly bioavailable ingredients formulated from biochemical building blocks. Whenever we use these types of ingredients, they are tested thoroughly to ensure bioavailability, purity, and efficacy.
Xylooligosaccharides
Xylooligosaccharides (XOS) are a form of oligosaccharides. XOS is a supportive medicinal ingredient found in Plexus Slim™.
Green coffee bean (Coffea canephora seed extract,


50% chlorogenic acids) (Natural-Sourced)
Green coffee bean extract is derived from coffee that has not yet been roasted. Green coffee beans have a higher level of chlorogenic acid compared to regular, roasted coffee beans. This particular extract with a high content of chlorogenic acid can help maintain healthy blood glucose already in the normal range (NNHPD 2014). For individuals in a weight management program, Green coffee bean extract with high chlorogenic content also could be a complement to a healthy lifestyle that incorporates a calorie-reduced diet and regular physical activity. Furthermore, this ingredient is also supportive for cardiovascular health. Plexus Slim™ provides 500 mg of this non-GMO Green Coffee Bean extract standardized to 50% chlorogenic acid and less than 2% of natural caffeine.
