Description
Spirulina is a blue-green microalgae that is high in protein and other nutrients, proven useful as a food supplement and for malnutrition. In the dermatological field, Spirulina is used as a Skin Conditioning agent and has been shown to improve skin texture and smoothness. Spirulina is gaining more attention from medical scientists as a nutraceutical and source of potential pharmaceuticals. There are several new peer reviewed scientific studies about Spirulina’s ability to inhibit viral replication, strengthen both the cellular and humoral arms of the immune system and cause regression and inhibition of cancers The Aloe Vera Plant has been credited with the ability to support health. Aloe Vera is used in many forms for its soothing and anti-inflammatory properties. Glyceryl Stearate is made by combining glycerine with stearic acid, a fatty acid obtained from animal and vegetable fats and oils. It acts as a lubricant on the skins surface, which gives the skin a soft and smooth appearance. It also slows the loss of water from the skin by forming a barrier on the skin’s surface. In cosmetics and personal care products, Glyceryl Sterate is widely used and can be found in lotions, creams, powders, skin cleansing products, makeup bases and foundations, mascara, eye shadow, eye liner, hair conditions and rinses, and suntan and sunscreen products. Safflower oil is oil made from the extract of the safflower seeds. There are a number of benefits to using safflower oil as a health and nutritional supplement. Safflower oil tends to contain more Vitamin E than olive oil, and has a significant amount of the essential fatty acids Omega-3 and Omega 6 than any other oil. When ingested, safflower oil has been shown to alleviate the symptoms of coronary heart disease, Type 2 Diabetes, high

When applied directly to the skin, it can also reduce the visibility of lines and wrinkles, reduce eczema, and reduce inflammation and redness Octyl Palmitate allows skin hydration and works as a solvent without giving skin a greasy texture. Cetyl and stearyl alcohols found in plants, like coconut and palm oils, is a lubricant that helps emulsify oil and water formulations. It is non-irritating nor drying and is not related to isopropyl alcohol. Cetyl Alcohol is not supposed to be acne forming, Cetyl Alcohol is found in a wide variety of products such as hair conditioners, foundations, eye makeup, skin moisturizers, skin cleansers and other skin care products. When used in the formulation of skin care products, Cetyl Alcohol acts as a lubricant on the skin surface, which gives the skin a soft, smooth appearance. Stearic acid is a saturated fatty acid that has an enormous variety of uses as an ingredient in food, cosmetics, and industrial products. It is extracted from many types of animal fats, vegetable fats, and some oils. Stearic acid is also commonly used in the production of soap. In the world of cosmetics, stearic acid is used to form a stable base for deodorants, lotions and creams. It helps to bind and thicken the products so they adhere smoothly to the skin and have a longer shelf life. Allantoin is a plant extract known to have calming properties to the skin that help resolve irritation. Allantoin is present in the botanical extracts of the comfrey plant and is safe, non toxic and compatible with cosmetic raw materials. Manufacturers cite several beneficial effects for allantoin as an active ingredient in over-the-counter cosmetics, including a moisturizing and keratolytic effect (is the treatment to remove warts and other lesions in which the epidermis produces excess skin) hydration by increasing the water content of the extracellular matrix (the outer part of the tissue that usually provides structural support to the cells) and enhancing the desquamation (the shedding of the outermost membrane of layer of tissue) of upper layers of dead skin cells, increasing the smoothness of the skin; promoting cell proliferation and wound healing; and a soothing, anti-irritant, and skin protectant effect b forming complexes with irritant and sensitising agents. Doctors refer to the thickened skin as hyperkeratosis, and include conditions such as corns and calluses. Keratolytic medications soften hardened areas of the skin that are commonly seen in corns, calluses, warts, as well as raised unsightly scar tissue. In terms of skin health, and skin care, vitamin E benefits are numerous. Vitamin E is vital in protecting skin cells from ultra violet light, pollution, drugs and other elements that product cell damaging free radicals. Vitamin E added to lotions, creams, and other skin care products, as well as taken orally, plays a role in the anti-aging of skin. It helps skin look younger by reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Vitamin E can aid in the treatment of various skin diseases or skin conditions, such as those used to treat psoriasis. One of the most important benefits of vitamin E is the prevention of skin cancer. Vitamin E has also been shown to help reduce the age spots , help maintain the skin’s oil balance, and reduces transepidermal water loss from skin and strengthens the skin’s barrier function. Natural preservatives such as Glycerine, citric acid, ascorbic acid and sodium chloride are used to preserve the delicate balance of ingredients in the breast cream. Natural essential oils such as French Lavender and Bulgarian

Rose are used as balancing oils and for relaxation or rejuvenation. These oils have also been shown to aid in the treatment of stretch marks, dandruff, cellulite, Varicose Veins and sunburn.

Bio Cleanse
Plexus Bio Cleanse is a specially formulated Magnesium Oxide compound with Oxygen Enhancement and Vitamin C with Bioflavonoids. Bio Cleanse oxygenates and energizes your body while detoxifying and cleansing wastes, pathogens and plaque in the gastrointestinal tract, colon, arteries, and blood. Since viruses, bacteria, fungi and other pathogenic microbes thrive in low oxygen environments, which can lead to diseases, it is important to keep oxygen levels high inside our bodies in order to prevent diseases from growing.

Product Name: Bio Cleanse

Purpose/Benefits: Bio Cleanse is
designed to: Oxygenate the entire body, detoxify and cleanse the gastrointestinal tract and arteries, energize both physically and mentally, neutralize acidic conditions that may promote pathogens. Enhance weight loss, support collagen products and relieve constipation

Product Ingredient Amount Ascorbic Acid (aka Vitamin C) 150mg  Detoxifies the body  Aids in the production of bile  Promotes healthy cell growth  Reduces cholesterol  Prevents high blood pressure

Description
Vitamin C is required in the synthesis of collagen in connective tissue, conversion of cholesterol to bile, promotes healthy cell development, proper calcium absorption, normal tissue growth and repair, and helps reduce cholesterol levels, high blood pressure and preventing arteriosclerosis. Vitamin C is very essential to any detoxification program, because that is what the body uses for energy to process and eliminate toxic waste. Vitamin C should be taken with bioflavonoids to ensure that all the components of the vitamin C complex work together. The maximum daily amount of vitamin C that is considered safe is 2000 mg. More than 2000mg of Vitamin C at a time may lead to diarrhea and upset stomach.
Without magnesium, your body could not properly digest foods. Your body uses magnesium to aid in the digestion process and to help regulate copper, potassium, zinc, vitamin D and calcium levels within your body. Magnesium also helps muscles contract (think about the intestinal muscles!) and activates enzymes that your body needs to assist in the absorption and use of fats, proteins and carbohydrates. These activating enzymes let the body digest and break down food into smaller particles for energy, which is the cornerstone to the digestive process. A magnesium deficiency can lead to poor digestion, and other symptoms such as insomnia, rapid

heartbeat and mental confusion. Women need approximately 310mg to 320mg of magnesium daily and men need between 400mg to 420mg of magnesium. Diuretics, caffeine, sugar, salt and alcohol can deplete magnesium levels. Sodium is a mineral needed to maintain cellular health and wellbeing. Sodium is used in the process of digesting other compounds, helps your body to digest and absorb the nutrients you eat, and is critical in the absorption of monosaccharides and animo acids – the building blocks of carbohydrates and proteins, respectively – from the small intestine into your blood stream. When you consume carbohydrates and proteins, you digest them into their building blocks. The intestinal cells then move them into the bloodstream. This process requires the presents of sodium, since sodium activates the transporter proteins that shuttle the building blocks across the intestinal lining. Bioflavonoids including whole lemon, quince, and grapefruit, contain extra vitamin C which is needed for smokers, diabetics, the elderly, allergy sufferers, and people under stress. Vitamin C, when combined with bioflavonoids and digestive enzymes, has been shown to be more effective at reducing inflammation than nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. Foods that contain powerful anti oxidants such as bioflavonoids, will enhance your immune and digestive system and in return, activate weight loss. Citrus fruits, including grapefruits, lemons and lines contain a bioflavonoid called taxifolin. Taxifolin helps absorb vitamin C, and Vitamin C boosts your immunity while eliminating toxic waste

ProBio 5
ProBio 5 has five extra strength probiotics, added enzymes, intestinal flora, B6 and Grape Seed extract – all in one effective delivery system. ProBio 5 contains powerful enzymes that are essential to the body in its need for support in synthesizing (breaking down) hostile organisms that may have a negative impact on your wellbeing.

Product Name: ProBio5

Purpose/Benefit: ProBio 5 will
support and provide the following benefits to your body: Yeast organism (Candida) and fungal cleanse, proper probiotic balance in the intestinal tract, proper intestinal balance which increases nutrient absorption. ProBio 5 will typically provide the following results: A relief from typical Candida symptoms, which may include anxiety, recurring irritability, heartburn, indigestion, lethargy, extreme food and environmental allergies, acne, dry, flaky, itchy skin, jock itch, migraine headaches, recurring cystitis/vaginal infections, premenstrual tension and menstrual problems

Product Ingredients Amount Proprietary blend of 200mg enzymes, including:  Breaks down the complex structures of fungi. Proteases  Breaks down proteins  Reduces inflammation  Aids in digestion N/A

Description
Enzymes are efficient and effective in the destruction of yeast and fungi. Proteins are broken down by protease enzymes, and cellulose is broken down by cellulose. Both protein and Cellulose make up the structure of most common fungal organisms. The enzyme profile in ProBio 5, which is micro encapsulated, in designed to process away the protein-based outer layer of yeast and fungal organisms. This then exposes the interior of these organisms to the cellulose of the chitosinase in the ProBio 5 Proteases catalyse the hydrolytic breakdown of proteins into peptides or amino acids. Protease enzymes can aid people who have problems digesting food, can help ease the symptoms associated with rheumatoid arthritis, and have historically been used in the treatment of cancer, including breast, stomach, reproductive, lymph and lung cancers. When your body is suffering from an inflammatory disease like rheumatoid arthritis, protease enzymes can help deconstruct immune complexes formed as a result of the condition. Autoimmune diseases like lupus and RA product high levels of antibodies that can build up in your body, increasing redness, pain and swelling. The antiinflammatory properties of Protease enzymes work to break down antibody related inflammation into its basic elements and make it easier to eliminate the associated waste from your body. Peptizymes are Proteolytic enzymes, or proteases, which refer to enzymes that break down protein. Peptizyme has been used in Europe and Japan for over 25 years, and has demonstrated effectiveness in treating inflammation and ear, nose and throat disorders, as well as aids in digestion, arthritis, and boosts the immune system. Cellulase refers to a class of enzymes that digest cellulose fiber, and aids in malabsorption (when nutrients are not properly absorbed into the blood stream) The body does not make cellulose, an enzyme necessary for proper digestion of fiber, so it must be introduced through the raw foods we eat. Cellulose fiber is poorly digested by humans and has little nutritional value. However, cellulose fiber is very important for the structure of cell membrances, which ultimately is responsible for keeping the inside of every cell healthy. Cell membranes, which surround the cells, can be considered the most important part of the cell. The cell membranes separate vital chemicals and structures needed to protect the cell from the environment, which may contain free radicals, chemicals and structures that are harmful to the cell. They also help regulate the types and amounts of molecules pulled from the environment into the cells. Yeast and fungal organisms are comprised of proteins, chitin, and cellulose structures. Chitin is translucent, pliable, resilient, and quite tough. The chitin structure can only be processed and broken down in the presence of the chitinase (chitosinase) enzyme. Like cellulose, chitin is relatively resistant to digestion, is typically not digested by humans, and chitin is a primary structure of yeast and other fungal organisms that invade the human intestinal tract. Candida yeast organises can only be killed when the enzyme chitinase is present. Bananas, chestnuts, kiwis, avocados, papaya, and tomatoes for example, all contain significant levels of chitinase. In addition to enzymes, ProBio 5 contains very beneficial “Friendly Bacteria” that assists in supporting the body’s need for a balance of probiotics (micro flora) in the digesting tract. This ‘friendly bacteria’ is delivered in a micro encapsulation system to ensure that they reach their intended destination in the digestive tract to help rebuild the damage done by the yeast and fungi over growth. Probiotics help fight the ‘bad’ organisms in your gut and improve intestinal health. Research suggests that probiotics have benefits that extend beyond the intestines, such as treating illnesses from type 1 diabetes to fibromyalgia. Lactobacillus Sporogenes settles in the digestive tract and produces enough lactic acid and other antagonistic substances to inhibit the growth of pathogenic bacteria. Lactobacillus Sporogenes is also used for many other health applications, such as the treatment of infectious diarrhea, diarrhea caused by antibiotics, irritable bowel syndrome, Chron’s disease, ulcerative colitis and as a cancer preventative.

This is a powder form of the normal friendly bacteria that live in our intestines (called flora). Taking acidiophilus replenishes our bacterial flora and reduces overgrow of yeast, especially some bacteria which grows well in the acid medium. Bacillus Sporogenes is a lactic acid-forming bacterial species that aids in the digestive process. The human intestinal tract contains trillions of bacteria that, in a healthy person, coexist with us in a beneficial, symbiotic relationship. They help digest food, product vitamins, regulate the metabolism, and control a normal immune response. Bacillus Sporogenes promotes a healthy intestinal environment by producing lactic acid and by secreting fatty acids that are helpful to the growth of other beneficial microorganisms. One of the most important residents in the human gastrointestinal tract, B. Longum keeps digestive system running smoothly, blocks the growth of harmful bacteria and boosts the immune system. The organism ferments sugars into lactic acid and has many health benefits for humans. It is often the dominant bacterium found in humans. Saccharomyces Boulardii is a unique, non-oathogenic yeast that has many beneficial actions in the intestinal tract. It has been utilized worldwide as a probiotic supplement to support gastrointestinal health by increasing intestinal populations of healthy bacteria while decreasing numbers of disease-causing organism. S-boulardii produces lactic and other acids known to inhibit disease causing Candida yeast species. Animal studies have shown that S-boulardii plays a role in preventing the Candida yeast from reproducing in the gut.

When vitamin C is digested, it becomes a water soluble antioxidant. Because it is in the water soluble state, vitamin C can directly affect the free radicals in the body. Vitamin C has also been proven to act as an antihistamine and ease inflammation in the digestive tract. Vitamin C helps the gastrointestinal tract to rid itself of toxins produced during food digestion.

The probiotics and enzymes in ProBio5 are assisted by the addition of vitamin B6. B6 is required by enzymes involved in protein metabolism and is also essential for red blood cell metabolism. In addition, vitamin B6 helps increase the amount of oxygen carried by the blood. A well oxygenated body is resistant to yeast and fungi.

Plexus Slim
Plexus Slim is an all-natural, safe, non-stimulatory and non-thermogenic powdered drink mix formulated to aid in weight loss and appetite management. Plexus Slim is completely diabetic friendly, and has been proven to help maintain glucose levels. Two principle active ingredients include derivatives of chlorogenic acid, (for fat metabolism) and oxypregnane steroidal glycoside (a benign plant extract proven to suppress the appetite while maintaining healthy glucose levels).

Product Name: Plexus Slim

Purpose/Benefits: Plexus Slim
promotes: Loss of weight and inches by burning fat, not muscle, healthy blood sugar levels, healthy cholesterol and lipid levels, healthy will power over food choices and free radical scavenging (reduces oxidative stress).

Product Ingredients Chlorogenic Acid (a plant extract)  Helps obtain healthy cholesterol levels  Helps burn fat, not muscle

Amount N/A

Description
Chlorogenic acid is a common dietary polyphenol found in many plants including certain fruits, green tea and green coffee beans. Chlorogenic acids are known for their anti oxideant and anti-inflammatory activities. It is one of the most powerful hydroycinnamic acids (see more below) and has a wide range of health benefits in humans. It is a powerful antioxidant that has been shown to help prevent atherosclerosis (a condition where hard plaques form in your artery walls, restrict the flow of blood and ultimately increase your heart disease risk), prevent cancer and prevent diabetes. In addition, chlorogenic acids help reduce blood levels of low density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol (a type of cholesterol that causes blockages in the arteries and increases your heart disease risk) thus improving cholesterol ratios, and has been shown to support weight loss (by forcing your body to use fat for energy). Coffee is the richest source of chlorogenic acid and contains between 35mg and 175mg of this hydroycinnamic acid per 100ml. Some other good chlorogenic acid foods include apples, blueberries and pears. Citrin K is a trademark name for the herbal extract of the Garcinia Cambogia fruit plant. Citrin K helps increase fat metabolism, decrease fat storage, and helps reduce food intake by curbing your appetite. Citrin K inhibits the synthesis of fatty acids in the liver, reducing the amount of available fat for storage. The Garcinia Cambogia (small pumpkin shaped, orange sized fruit) is found mainly in Asia, and has the highest Citrin K content; 10-30% by weight. Alpha-lipoic acid is an antioxidant that is made by the body and is found in every cell, where it helps turn glucose into energy. Other antioxidants work only in water (such as vitamin C) or fatty tissues (Such as Vitamin E), but alpha-lipoic acid appears to help lower blood sugar levels. Its ability to kill free radicals may help people with diabetic peripheral neuropathy, who have pain, burning, itching, tingling and numbness in arms and legs from nerve damage. Oxypregnane Steroidal Glycoside is isolated from the African cactus hoodia Gordonii. It is thought to be responsible for the appetite suppressant activity of Hoodia extracts. The hoodia plant is a spiny succulent (similar looking to a cactus) that grows in the Kalahari Desert in Africa, mostly in the arid areas of South Africa, Botswana, and Namibia. San Busnmen (who are one of the world’s oldest huntergatherer tribes), have known about it for countless generations. This is a trace element that plays a role in glucose metabolism. Chormium is known to enhance the action of insulin, a hormone critical to the metabolism and

Maltodextrin is a complex sugar that the human digestive system breaks down into simple sugars very quickly. As such, it provides a longer burn of energy than sucrose for fructose. That’s why it’s used in a lot of endurance enhancing products like gels that triathletes and cyclists use. Maltodextrin is naturally-derived from carbohydrate containing foods like rice, corn, potato, and barley. The term “naturally derived” is a key reason for this additive’s popularity. Since maltodextrin is a naturally-derived product, it is easier for the body to break down and digest efficiently. Citric acid is a weak organic acid. It is a natural preservative which is also used to add an acidic, or sour taste to foods and soft drinks. In biochemistry, the base of citric acid, citrate, is important in the metabolism of virtually all living things.

Beetroot is a rich source of potent antioxidants and nutrients, including magnesium, sodium, potassium and Vitamin C. Beetroot juice has been shown to lower blood pressure and thus help prevent cardiovascular problems. Research published in the American Heart Association journal Hypertension showed drinking 500ml of beetroot juice led to a reduction in blood pressure within one hour. Grape seed extract is a natural plant product made from the grade seed. Grape seed extracts have compounds called procyanidolic oligomers (PCOs). Other sources of PCOs are berries, green and black teas, and red wine. PCOs are powerful antioxidants, perhaps much greater than Vitamins C and E. Grape seed extract is generally considered safe. However, side effects may include headache, itchy scalp, dizziness, and nausea. People allergic to grapes should not use grape seed extract. If you have a bleeding disorder or high blood pressure, talk to your doctor before you start using grape seed extract. If you take any medicines regularly, talk to your doctor before you start using grape seed extract. It could interact with drugs like blood thinners (such as the blood thinner Coumadin), NSAID painkillers (like aspirin, Advil, and Aleve), certain heart medicines and cancer treatments. Luo han guo is a very sweet fruit found in China. Extracts of luo han guo are commonly used as a sweetener. Lo Han has a low Glycemic Index, and does not cause extreme fluctuations in blood sugar. Lo Han is a good sweetener choice for those who do not want to trigger their insulin, and who are watching their weight. This is also a plant based extract used as a sweetener. The plant species Stevia Rebaudiana, commonly known as sweetleaf, sweet leaf, sugarleaf, or simply stevia, is widely grown for its sweet leaves. As a sweetener and sugar substitute, stevia’s taste has a slower onset and longer duration than that of sugar which results in a negligible effect on blood glucose. In relation to diabetes, studies have shown stevia to have a re-vitalizing effect on B-cells of the pancreas, improve insulin sensitivity in rats, and possibly even to promote additional insulin production helping to reverse diabetes and metabolic syndrome. Stevia consumed before meals significantly reduced postprandial insulin levels compared to both aspartame and sucrose. A recent 2011 review study concluded that Stevia sweeteners would likely benefit diabetic patients. Polydextrose is a water-soluble form of glucose that provides the bulk and texture of sucrose (sugar) in foods. It has a low glycemic response and is used to provide body and texture in reduced calorie, no added sugar and high fiber foods. This is thought to aid in weight loss since it has no calories and is a type of soluble fiber . However, in people who have sensitivity to it, polydextrose might cause gas and bloating, loose stools and possibly diarrhea. (Naturally derived from plant extracts, NOT high fructose corn syrup) Fructose is a monosacchachride (simple sugar), which the body can quickly use for energy. Because it does not cause blood sugar tremendously (has a low glycemic index), it is thought to be an acceptable substitute for sucrose (table sugar). A small amount of fructose, such as the amount found in most vegetables and fruits, is not a bad thing. In fact, there is evidence that a little bit may help your body process glucose properly.

Soy Lecithin is an oily substance that occurs naturally in plants (soy beans) and animals (egg yolks). Soy lecithin (E322) is extracted from soybeans either mechanically or chemically. It’s actually a byproduct of the soybean oil production. The health industry uses it as a supplement because of its high choline content. Choline is a micronutrient that is good for heart health and brain development. Food manufacturers use Soy Lecithin as an additive in foods for its emulsification properties. This means it can keep food ingredients ‘together’ by making sure that they don’t separate. Most people with soy allergies needn’t worry about products containing soy lecithin, because it is derived from the soybean oil, whereas the allergy itself relates to the soy protein. However, some people with a soy allergy have been known to be sensitive to soy lecithin as well. Carmine, or cochineal (as it is perhaps more commonly known) is derived from a mixture of crushed beetles. More specifically, these dried insects are boiled in water to extract the carminic acid they contain. Typically due to the fantastic red colour the resulting potion gives off, this ingredient is used to artificially dye foods red, purple and pink. I understand there’s a grossness factor that probably explains why products using this ingredient list ‘carmine’ instead of ‘powdered red beetles’ on the label. However carmine, is used as a food colouring ingredient in yogurt, ice cream, juice drinks and many other grocery products. Except for a few individuals who suffer severe allergic reactions to beetles, most people do just fine eating carmine. Although carmine reactions are extremely rare, a study conducted at the University of Michigan (headed by Dr. Baldwin, University of Michigan Medical Center) demonstrated carmine can cause a severe allergic reaction known as anaphylaxis – a condition that can put a person into shock and require hospitalization. With that said, based on the health enhancing properties of other pigmentation chemicals from the animal world (such as astaxanthin found in crustaceans and salmon – it’s 500 times stronger than vitamin E as an antioxidant), carmine may very well be good for you. It’s certainly better for you than any synthetic colour, such as FD&C No. 40, which is derived from coal tar. Hydroxcycinnamic acids are a group of phytonurtients (plant based chemical compounds that have numerous health benefits in the human body but are not classed as essential nutrients). They are mainly found in coffee but can also be sourced from fresh fruits and vegetables. While hydroycinnamic acids are not believed to be essential for human survival, they do have a number of important health benefits. Apart from coumarin, they are all potent antioxidants which keep your body’s cells safe from harmful free radicals (dangerous substances that are released into the body’s cells during oxygen related reactions). In addition to this, hydroycinnamic acids act as anti-inflammatories (substances that prevent unnecessary inflammation within your body), keep your blood healthy, prevent cancer and much more.

Are you sensitive? It is important to learn about your body, and what it responds positively to, and what it may not be able to handle. It is also important to know that food sensitivities are different from food allergies, and that these may change over time for you. In a nutshell, if you experience abdominal and/or intestinal issues with starting Plexus Slim, ask yourself if you are sensitive to any of the following: Sorbitol, Maltodextrin, Beet Root or Grape Skin Extracts, or Polydextrose.

Description
Research shows that calcium can help adjust your body’s fat-burning machinery. The key is low-fat dairy sources, says the Nutrition Institute at the University of Tennessee at Knoxville. “High-Fat dietary calcium can establish obesity, but it’s surprising that low-fat calcium may help reduce body fat” Reports Web MD. “The effect is very significant, much more than we imagined it would be” Magnesium helps keep your heart healthy and helps your body absorb important minerals like calcium and potassium, prevent constipation, kidney stones, gallstones, and osteoporosis. If you have type 2 diabetes or a cardiovascular disease, maintaining an adequate level of magnesium is important. Magnesium helps improve insulin and glucose levels

B Vitamins, in general, are important in terms of weight loss, and they are often known as the ‘stress’ vitamins. Vitamins B3 and B6 are especially important because they help to supply fuel to cells, which are then able to burn energy. Vitamin B6 together with zinc is necessary for the production of pancreatic enzymes which help you to digest food. If your digestion is good, you will be much more likely to use your food efficiently, instead of storing it as fat. B vitamins are essential in maintaining healthy immune systems.
Research has concluded that dark chocolate-based foods can decrease the risk of cardiovascular disease, improve insulin sensitivity and other diabetic symptoms, relieve inflammation, fight depression, increase energy, improve breathing and even decrease your appetite. Dark chocolate is loaded with key neurotransmitters like tryptophan, serotonin and dopamine. These nutrient chemicals suppress one’s appetite and block the pathway that leads to food cravings. Dark chocolate contains a large number of antioxidants (nearly 8 times the number found in strawberries) Guarana (also known as GeranaX) is a creeping shrub native to Venezuela and northern Brazil in the Amazon rain forest. The fruit are small, bright red, and contains black seeds. Guarana seeds are rich in caffeine and contain up to 4-8%

caffeine, more than coffee beans. Guarana is a popular ingredient in herbal weight loss pills, as evidence indicates that guarana may suppress appetite and increase fat-burning

Green tea extract may boost metabolism and help burn fat. Green tea is made from unfermented leaves and reportedly contains the highest concentration of powerful antioxidants called polyphenols. Other traditional uses of green tea include regulating body temperature and blood sugar, and promoting digestion . Research also shows that green tea lowers total cholesterol and raises HDL (“Good”) cholesterol

Vanadium is needed for cellular metabolism. It has been shown to improve insulin utilization, resulting in improved glucose tolerance, as well as inhibiting cholesterol synthesis. It is useful in lowering LDL cholesterol levels. By inhibiting fats from forming in the cholesterol walls, it also helps to inhibit fats from being stored thus inhibiting weight gain.

This amazing compound is probably the cleanest stimulant ever researched, and it is naturally present in human fluids and tissues. Although categorized as a stimulant, it has the remarkable ability to simulate the central nervous system without causing nervousness or the jittery feeling. B-Phenylethylamine HCI suppresses appetite, burns fat, increases body’s natural metabolic rate, boosts energy levels, gives your a feeling of being full and satisfied, and helps control blood sugar and cravings.

NOTE: Natural stimulants, such as Guarana, should not be used by people who are sensitive to caffeine. If caffeine sensitivity exists, it is advisable to take half a capsule of Plexus Accelerator to start your weight loss program. People with heart conditions, diabetes, high blood pressure, epilepsy, overactive thyroid, anxiety, insomnia, and kidney disease should consult their doctor before taking Plexus Accelerator, or any other product containing natural caffeine. It is not advisable to ingest caffeine if pregnant or nursing. It is not advisable to take any products containing ephedra (Plexus products do not contain ephedra!) Excessive use of natural caffeine may increase the risk of stroke, hemorrhage, myocardial infarction, and sudden death and has been associated with increases in heart rate, blood pressure and potentially harmful changes in glucose and potassium levels.
