The Gut And Your Metabolism: A Health Crisis
Real health begins in your gut. The delicate balance of good and bad microbes in your gut (your "microbiome") can affect everything from your mood, to your immune system, to your weight. It can also have a dramatic impact on your metabolism. And since you count on your metabolism to help your body effectively process carbohydrates, fats, and sugars, you need it to work it’s best—all day, every day.
Unfortunately, your gut health and metabolism can be impaired by any number of factors—poor diet, high stress levels, artificial sweeteners, antibiotics, soda, processed foods, lack of exercise,
or poor sleep habits (just to name a few).
Plexus Slim can give support for healthy glucose metabolism, while helping your body metabolize carbohydrates and fats. It’s a quick, easy, tasty way to give your metabolism the daily boost it needs!
How Slim Works Plexus Slim is packed with powerful ingredients such as
chromium, green coffee bean extract, and mulberry. Chromium
helps provide support for a healthy glucose metabolism while
also aiding the body to metabolize carbohydrates and fats.
The green coffee bean extract in Slim works double time, supporting cardiovascular health and helping to maintain healthy blood
pressure levels. On top of this, Slim’s mulberry content provides antioxidant support, which can help protect cells from the oxidative damage caused by free radicals.

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.
