For this review, Plexus sent me a free bag of Slim, but all thoughts and opinions are mine.
I love blogging about products, especially health products. It’s a subject dear to my heart!
I was really excited when Plexus Slim sent sent me a bag of the new slim to try! (In exchange for my fair and unbiased review).
I have been using Plexus products for about three years so I’m very familiar with the old formula.
Plexus has made some great improvements. For one, it has a more distinct natural flavor. Plexus Slim the new formula tastes like watermelon and raspberry. (It has a lemon on the package, too, but I mostly tasted watermelon and raspberry). Plexus could taste like pretty much anything to me and I would like it, as it has a great result on my blood sugar, and my body craves that. The craving makes me love the taste. I loved both the old and the new taste. If you didn’t like the old one, you might love that the new taste tastes like fruit, not just a vaguely sweet drink.
The biggest improvement? It dissolves instantly in water! Again, the sticky, clumpy nature of the old formula was never an issue for me, as I just whisked it with a fork. But still, it’s pretty cool that you can now toss it in your water bottle and drink it down immediately with no effort. Fans will love this.
That’s the biggest improvement in my opinion, at least. Plexus has added a new ingredient (and as far as I can tell all the old ingredients that we love are still there), and it’s a prebiotic. Prebiotics feed probiotics. Pretty cool, huh? So you’re extending the life of your probiotics and supporting healthy glucose metabolism when you drink this amazing drink! Here’s to gut health and weight loss!
When I was pregnant with Anneka, Slim was a lifesaver for me. I don’t think I can go into all the reasons why, but I was so grateful for it!
