I would love to tell you about the ingredients in this product. I did extensive research before putting my father-in-law on this product because I was worried about contraindications. I was "SOLD" after the first 2 ingredients, I was MAD when I finished my research. Mad at our failed medical system, at the doctors who can't see past prescription medication and at patients who won't take their medical care in their own hands and do research.
My husband and I are both in the medical field, I am a Cytologist and he a Physical Therapist. We are also a couple of redneck yahoo survival nuts
This product was created by Dave Brown, a Mormon in Salt Lake City and a friend of his who is a chemist. It was created to help diabetics become less insulin dependent. They were going thru the FDA approval process when they discovered in their clinical trials the number one side effect was weight loss. They pulled their FDA application and decided to go the all natural route and market it as a weight loss product that is safe for diabetics. There is a video under the testimonial tabs at my website goplexus.com where Dave Brown tells about the product.
Indredients: You only have to go as far as Wikipedia to be amazed by the ingredients and I'm not sure how much detail you want.
Chlorogenic Acid - This compound, long known as an antioxidant, also slows the release of glucose into the bloodstream after a meal. http://www.ajcn.org/content/78/4/728.full
Cirtrin K - comes from Garcinia Cambogia- which in the past has been used for edema, constipation and rheumatism. It is also used as an appetite suppressant and can be bought in any health food store. The help of getting off excess fluid is the part of this product that really excites my husband because the majority of his patients have 4+ pitting edema, even thought they are ALL on Lasix medication.
Alpha Lipoic Acid - this ingredient in my opinion is the rock star! The research is far and wide and could never be discussed here in such a way to really educate the many different things it does. Every man woman and child needs to be on this supplement in my opinion. So even if you aren't interested in Plexus, go get some of this and get on it.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alpha_lipoic_acid
Oxypregnane steriodial glycoside - aka P57- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/P57_(glycoside
Amino Nicotinate GTF - aka GTF Chromium http://www.springerlink.com/content/d1411823505k9p87/
Beet root - Another "rock star" ingredient http://jap.physiology.org/content/110/3/585.extracthttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beetroot
Grape Skin Extract - (Resveratrol) Yet another wonderful ingredient that much has been discovered about, there is so much excellent research about this ingredient, I can't do it justice in this forum.
This product is sweetened by Stevia and Lo-han, both natural sweeteners.
Let me challenge anyone interested in this product and what it is doing, to do their own research. Don't listen to me. You can find the entire list of ingredients at the website.
