If you are drinking Plexus Slim "aka" The Pink drink, or thinking about it, to loss weight, you might want to read..
I didn't care about this stuff, until I found out some friends and family got sick from drinking it....So I looked into this "all natural/ safe" product...There is alot I know that the ppl selling it and taking it don't....I'll tell you a few..There are at least 3 appetite suppressants in it..
In the mix, so far I found 2 appetite suppressants..(Oxypregnane Steroidal Glyoside) (plant extract) . this is from the Hoodia plant and( Citrin k..).
Citrin K caught my eye, so I started researching this..It comes from a fruit known as the Garcinia cambogia, or known as the Malabar Tamarind..They get Citrin K from the rind of this fruit that is full of Hydroxycitric Acid ..Does anyone know what Hydroxycitric Acid is...Well I'll tell you..
Hydroxycitric Acid is what gave the diet supplement Hydroxycut it's name....The FDA pulled it from the shelves after a 19 yr old died and other ppl starting having problems with their liver.. it also had ephedra in it, which is now banned.. When the company disclosed the list of ingredients in Hydroxycut, the FDA MADE them take hydroxycitric acid out, because it is liked to Liver damage, muscle and Kidney disease, cardiovascular crises and siezures....since they revamped it, it's now back on the shelves..
There are a few names it goes by to disquise Hydroxycitric Acid ...Don't take my word for it though, all you have to do is look into all the ingredients in the pink drink and not just go by what the company site tells you....one of their sites will tell you that Hydroxycinnamic Acid is NOT liked to Hydroxycut..that's because Hydroxycinnamic acid is derived from Cinnamon.. which is good for weight loss on it's own..
The Accelerator pill has 2 more appetite suppressants in it.. More of the Hoodia( which I found in the Propietary Blend) and something called Phenylethlamine HCL..the more I looked into the Phenylethlamine, I also found the they also use this as a componant in anti-depressants...
Like I said, I'm still researching this stuff.. I can't find if there are clinical and scientific studies done on it,other than what the company itself did..
I don't take it, but was asked why I care about this.. It's only because I have 7 family /and friends who got sick from it ( prolly more than that) and I know more that is taking it..I don't want to see ppl i care about get sick... I'm not trying to tell ppl what to do... So if I can share what I've found and it helps someone, then I feel I've done a good thing..
So if you are drinking it and experience, headaches, diareaha/ explosive diareaha, fatigue, or constipation, abdominal cramping, bloating, excess gas.ect...this is prolly why...
Some one called the company and asked them about the Citrin k in it.. And the guy told them that it was safe for both liver and kidney..?????? He is CRAZY!. lol.. of course he's not going to say it's bad for you.. so please, don't take my word for it...I've looked at multiple sites and are still looking...I heard someone lost 14lbs in 6 days drinking Plexus Slim.. Do you think that much weight loss is really healthy??? You will lose LOTS of water weight first and if you stop drinking it, you will def gain it all back because you've been dehydrating and starving your body..
....You have to consume calories in order to lose weight..Ppl that are drinking it is being told that is safe and natural and it only targets your adipose fat and won't damage muscle tissue.. Adipose fat, is just a fancy word for fat cells..Yes, too much of it can lead to diseases..There being told you don't have to stop eating what your eating or even exercise.. You can even drink it while your Pregnant, let your kids drink it,it's so safe (why would anyone want to lose weight while pregnant?)..Citrin K is bad for pregnant woman and kids..
Safe and healthy weight loss is about 2-3 lbs a wk.( You have to consume at least 3,500 calories in order to lose one pound)..you have to eat in order to burn calories..starving yourself does not burn calories, your body will go into survival mode and start storing fat because it thinks it's starving.( Just look up what rapid weight loss does to your body)...To lose weight healthy,drink lots of water, eat right, exercise, at least walking , eating raw fruits and veggies, stop the soft drinks and fast food........If something like this "Pink Drink" sounds too good to be true, I'll tell you.. It is too good to be true... I hope this helps someone..
