THE MECHANICS OF WEIGHT LOSS
The body naturally stores fat. The most common areas are the stomach, thighs and buttocks. These excess fat stores contain toxins that cause havoc with our immune system. Ultimately this can lead to heart disease, diabetes, loss of energy, depression and many other debilitating conditions.
“Obesity in the U.S. is driving rising rates of diabetes and hypertension with stroke-causing conditions affecting almost 3 in 10 Americans. Excess weight increases the risk of developing heart disease, stroke and other serious conditions, according to the U. S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention.” Bloomberg News, October 2008

PRODUCT ACTIVE INGREDIENTS
Leveraging the research and experience of one of the world’s largest natural ingredient compounder, Plexus Slim harnesses the beneficial essence of 2 plant extract concentrates, provides proven effectiveness in slimming and provides beauty benefits. Compounded using a proprietary process, Plexus Slim possesses a unique composition. Its effectiveness has been clinically proven.
The two principle active ingredients in Plexus Slim are derivatives of chlorogenic acid and oxypregnane steroidal glycoside. Among other mechanisms, these two ingredients provide:
Fat metabolism – Chlorogenic acids are one of the major classes of phenolic compounds. They are present in a large variety of fruits and vegetables. They largely occur conjugated with quinic acid as in chlorogenic acid.
Appetite management – Oxypregnane steroidal glycoside is a benign plant extract. Several varieties of the plant exist, however, one species in particular exhibits extraordinary appetite management qualities. 3β-[β-d-thevetopyranosyl-(1→4)-β-d- cymaropyranosyl-(1→4)-β-d-cymaropyranosyloxy-12β-tigloyloxy-14β-hydroxypregn-5-en-20-one.
The benefits of Chlorogenic acids to our health have been demonstrated in numerous scientific studies. The study by Richelle et al. confirms the anti-oxidant power of Chlorogenic acids. Furthermore, it shows that the anti-oxidant power is approximately twice as superior to that of dark chocolate. The works of Bandyopadhyay et al. and Jiang et al. equally confirm the benefits of Chlorogenic acids to our health. Studies have shown that caffeic acid possesses a strong anti-oxidant power, notably limiting the oxidation of lipids in the liver. The Chlorogenic acid in Plexus Slim is a particular and unique composition and is guaranteed free of cafestol and kahweol and other harmful elements.
Oxypregnane Steroidal Glycoside
The hypothalamus is the part of the brain that regulates certain metabolic processes and other activities of the autonomic nervous system. It synthesizes and secretes neuro-hormones, often called hypothalamic-releasing hormones, and these in turn stimulate or inhibit the secretion of pituitary hormones. Its basic function is to control body temperature, hunger, thirst, fatigue, anger and circadian cycles (the body’s clock).
When food is consumed, blood sugar (glucose) levels increase, prompting the body to start sending signals to the brain that it is full. This causes the hypothalamus region of the brain to cease sending out signals that the body needs a further source of energy. Scientists in cooperation with the British company Phytopharm isolated a steroidal glycosie active ingredient they designated as P57. They discovered that the brain interprets the molecules in the chemical structure of P57 as molecules of glucose. This has the same effect on the hypothalamus as consuming large quantities of food.
The unique steroidal glycoside extract used in Plexus Slim is estimated to be 100,000 times more potent than glucose, so as soon as it is sensed by the hypothalamus, the body is ‘told’ that it is full, thus inhibiting overeating.
SUMMARY OF MOST RECENT CLINICAL TEST
A clinical study was conducted in 2008 from June through October. The study was conducted with 8 type 2 diabetes patients of mixed gender and age. While all patients carried excess weight to varying degrees, the primary purpose of this study was to see how well the product reduced glucose levels in Type 2 diabetics. The weight loss was a secondary consideration.

Study Results: All patients experienced improvement in the above listed areas and categories. Many times shedding the final 5–10 pounds of excess weight is the most difficult. It is important to note that even patients with relatively little excess weight (5–10 lbs) were able to shed these excess pounds.
