What Is Plexus 96?

Plexus 96 is a whey protein-based weight loss shake produced by a US-based company named Plexus Worldwide.

One pack of Plexus 96 contains 12 sachets, costs $35.95, and will last users between 4-12 days depending on how many meals are replaced each day; it is available direct from the official Plexus 96 website and Amazon.

Plexus 96 is designed to be used as a meal replacement shake, ideally in conjunction with a shake-only VLCD (very low calorie diet), though it can also just be used as a convenient means of supplementing protein and vitamins into your diet.

One 28g serving of the shake contains 100 calories and a complex of vitamins and minerals which add up to approximately 30-40% of your daily nutrient requirements.

Consumers of Plexus 96 are promised effects such as sustained energy, reduced hunger levels and the improved ability to gain muscle mass.

Does Plexus 96 Work?

Based on our research into this product, we believe that it’s likely a useful produce to use for targeting a leaner physique, however we believe that there’s a lot of misinformation floating around the internet about this product.

Firstly, on a highly positive note, Plexus 96 is a good meal replacement shake. It is low in calories and contains lots of vitamins and minerals (note: it doesn’t contain 100% of your daily vitamin requirements so you’ll need to take vitamin as well). If you have the willpower to stick to a VLCD (very low calorie diet) while using these shakes to replace your meals, you’re highly likely to see weight loss over a period of 2-3 months.

Make no mistake, you’re going to have to work for the weight loss results; this product does not contain “fat burning” ingredients – it’s not going to melt away your body fat nor is it going to boost your metabolic rates.

In regards to the other claims made by Plexus, we’re not entirely convinced they’re accurate. We don’t believe this product really will provide users much of an energy boost (based on its minimal calorie content). Furthermore, we have found no “appetite suppressing” ingredients inside the formula.

Plexus also state that the product can “help users build lean muscle mass”, however each serving only contains 15g of protein, which is a little on the low side.

Are There Any Plexus 96 Reviews From Customers?

We have found the following Plexus 96 review testimonials via customers online:

I love this stuff!! I use it post workout. It’s so easy because it comes in single packets and you just mix with water or milk and go! I personally use a blender cup with it. And just shake and go!! It’s so delicious.

I tried the chocolate one first. I mixed it with milk instead of water, hoping for a richer, creamier shake. The first taste of this stuff was just awful but after that, it was okay. Don’t think I will be buying anymore of it. Plexus is a great company and makes some really great products. Try it yourself and see if you like it.
