Edited to say: My health is a work in progress; health in general is not an over-night fix. But the reason I am so excited about these products is because they are the first thing that has actually helped to restore and rejuvenate my health. Very likely no one on this earth will have perfect 100% health 100% of the time, but I am so thankful to be feeling better than I have in years after several months of Plexus.

Just last week, out of the blue, my husband said, “Your health is SO different than it used to be!” I laughed, because I knew it was true, and was just waiting for him to notice on his own. :)

I’ll be the first to admit that I was a complete skeptic: I thought there was no way this supplement could actually be good for you.  This was BEFORE I really looked into Plexus, and I thought there must be awful ingredients somewhere that would make it harmful to a person’s health! I tend to jump the clear opposite direction of the Latest Greatest Products, because surely they can’t be all they are cracked up to be!

But a friend, who is natural minded, level-headed. :) and who has been helped so much health-wise herself through these products, began telling me about them. If I hadn’t heard through her, I don’t know that I would have tried them, because she is someone I trust and that makes thought-through decisions. Plus, these products are also recommended by the Bulk Herb Store, which is a very reputable place.  I decided the least thing I can do is give it a try because it would either 1) help me! or 2) I’d get all my money back. There was really nothing to lose.

So why did I even want to try it?
Health-wise, I seemed mostly okay.
But my husband and I knew that I was so run-down physically. Having babies and nursing them has been so hard on my body, and after three of these precious kiddos I had almost no energy left. I thought that was just normal with three kids.

I’d wake up in the morning, after sleeping all night (my kids are great sleepers) and still felt like a truck ran over me. I couldn’t wait until nap time, when I could rest again in the afternoon. But often I didn’t get a rest, because it’s hard to line up three little people’s schedules to all be quiet at the very same time for more than a few minutes.

I had adrenal fatigue, which means that anything physically or emotionally or mentally wiped me out. If we’d go away for a weekend or week, I’d come back home and have no energy left for days. Like, NO ENERGY.

I had low blood sugar, where I could see my hands shake from the low sugar levels in my body. If I stood up too fast, I’d have to grab onto something because I’d black out and couldn’t see anything.

I had “mommy brain” – you know, where they talk about your brain leaving with the birth of your babies. It’s also called brain fog in very scientific terms, :) where I couldn’t seem to think clearly, and if I had a busy day I’d feel completely overwhelmed because it would be too much for me to keep up with mentally.

I did not need to lose weight, and did not want to. I know, you can throw the tomatoes. My mom passed down really good genetics to where weight isn’t something I’ve had to struggle with. I run to stay toned because even good genetics don’t keep someone toned and healthy. :) The running made me feel good as far as physically toned, but not with my energy levels, and I knew I needed someone more. But what??

This is the part where I tried Plexus Slim, also known as the Pink Drink. :)

Still fully skeptical, I tried it. With the 60-day money-back guarantee, I thought there was nothing to lose. If it didn’t work, I would get every penny back. If it did help me, then yay, I’d be feeling better!!

It was not an overnight change, because Plexus Slim is not a magic potion. Their products work from the inside out, and as with nearly anything good, it takes time to work. Plexus works at a cellular level, and is loaded with ingredients that  make healthy cells in your body. And healthy cells = healthy you! The Slim is full of all natural products, with nothing in fine print that you don’t want to know about. It’s gluten-free. It’s packed with good products and trace minerals that aren’t instant-magic, but that work with your body to bring full vital health.


It was after the first month that I noticed that I began to wake up feeling refreshed. Actually refreshed, to where I’d wake up and feel ready to get out of bed. Get out of town!!! What was happening to me? During the third month of taking the Slim (Pink Drink) is where I started feeling very different, like I was beginning to feel healthy again! It has been YEARS since I felt healthy.

After that first month I had some times where my energy lowered a bit for a week or so as the toxins were being taken out of my body, but then my energy continued climbing again. And I’ve had a few days here and there where I can tell I’m going through another small detoxing phase, but overall my energy is increasing, and I feel better continually.

Now, I don’t even think about a nap during the day, because I don’t need one. I am not wiped out after a weekend or week away, even with late nights. I can return home and feel just fine! My “brain fog” keeps clearing up and I can go through busy days so much better. Again, it is not a miracle product, but it does work with your body to bring optimum health, and I am so thankful!! My husband also started taking the Slim, and he cannot believe the better energy he has. And it’s not because of a caffeine rush! I have not lost weight on the Pink Drink; those I’ve asked about that say that lower-weight people don’t need to worry, because it’s optimally about good health, which brings about a healthy weight.

This blog is not going to become all about Plexus, but from time to time I may mention it. I just want other women and mothers to know that you can have help for your health! You don’t have to be exhausted and wiped out all the time! If someone has told you about Plexus, I highly recommend that you contact them and try this product! :)

Plexus has helped thousands of people to come to better health – there are countless testimonies of tick-borne illnesses, yeast/issues, high/low blood sugar levels, digestive problems, poor gut health, hormone levels, and so much more being helped!

Other people try Plexus for the weight loss benefits, or the home business aspect.

I began taking Plexus for my own health benefits, and have now begun selling it as a business. You can purchase through me at my site here, message me through my blog, leave a comment below, or message me on Facebook if you have questions or want more information about it.

I greatly dislike high-pressure salespeople, so this is not about pressure! :) But just to let you know that there is a way to better health if you have been struggling. I’m not paid to advertise here, and if I wasn’t so sold on a product there was no way I could be writing an entire blog post on Plexus! I would have thought myself crazy six months ago. :)

The 60-day money-back guarantee on every single product shows the company’s belief in their products, and also their belief in true health that begins from the inside out, not an instant temporary fix. Here is a little video of the various Plexus products, if you’re interested in learning more.

Edit 10/4/2017
It’s now been over three years since I’ve been on this Plexus journey, and I continue to feel the energy that I once only dreamed of, along with an immune system that is strong and health and able to go through a winter, along with our family that is now six of us! I had the most amazing Plexus pregnancy with little Jack, and his immune system is so strong and healthy because of the quality probiotics and supplments I used during pregnancy.
My husband Ben and I now lead a team of almost 1500 families, called the Wellness Village, and we are a community that is so much fun and truly that “village” of support in our health journeys are we go from surviving to thriving. New families are daily being added because the products that we have work. It’s a simple product line, but with a powerhouse of nutrition. If you have any questions please send me a message, because it’s my joy to help new families get started on their journey to better health!

    Is the pink drink good? That’s the question I wonder every time I hear of someone raving about it. Also, how often do you drink it?

  2. ladonna

    You did say it’s alright to take while nursing right? I’m seriously considering trying this if that is the case. I don’t want my baby to have any bad effects from it, though so I just want to be sure. I need something! After this last birth in which I lost 1,000cc’s of blood I have had a really hard time getting my energy back. I feel so depleted. The frustrating thing is that anything to gain energy out there has warning label’s about taking it while nursing. Even supposedly healthy things. So if this is ok to take while nursing I will definitely consider trying it out.

      Ladonna, Yes!! I personally have friends who have taken it while nursing, and it has been wonderful for them! If you’d like an ingredient list to give to your doctor for his okay, I can send that to you. But wow, I’d love for you to try this! I would love for you to have your energy back.

      Hi Leona! I took the Slim (Pink Drink) and the X-Factor for a while, and now I’m on the Slim and ProBio5 (for yeast issues). It can vary by person for what they take depending on what their body needs!

  3. jo

    Is it something you would keep taking or do you go off of it once you feel better? I would consider it now that I know it doesn’t taste badly :)

    1. The Cottage at 341 South Post author

      Hi Jo! It is something I plan on taking because my health keeps improving, and because it feeds my body with amino acids and other wonderful ingredients which continually promote good health! But that would be up to each person – there is certainly no obligation to continue. :)

  4. Gail McNeeley

    I read everything you write because you’re always wonderful and worth reading! Plexus sounds great!

  5. Jolita

    You wrote this so well! I can relate to much of it, and I love the difference that I’m feeling also!

  6. Kristina

    So it’s safe to take while nursing… But what about while you’re pregnant? If you quit taking it after you feel better does your body just go back down hill?

    1. The Cottage at 341 South Post author

      Hi Kristina!
      Yes, I have many friends and relatives who take or have taken this while pregnant, and they say it has helped them with a wonderful pregnancy! It is full of amino acid and other ingredients that are wonderful for a developing baby. Some people take Plexus products for life, and other people take them until they feel great and then stop. If there are healthy habits in place your health should not go down hill. Of course, a good multi-vitamin is always a good idea then. Feel free to message me if you have any more questions!

    Hi Clarita,
    I’m wondering which products you would recommend taking while pregnant. Also, how much do you spend a month on Plexus? These products sound so good, but so often the price tag that comes w/ them is just so frustratingly high!

    1. The Cottage at 341 South Post author

      Hi Parla! I recommend the TriPlex (which is Slim, PrioBio5, and BioCleanse), which targets health in so many different areas – blood sugar, healthy cholesterol and lipid levels, energy and hormone levels, as well as cleansing the body of yeast and candida. The products range in price from $25-$79, and some people think it’s a great deal and far less expensive than what they were used to spending, and other people think it’s pricey. :) This weekend is 10% off on all orders though, with the code THANKS2014, so it’s a great time to purchase! :)

  8. Jill Hayes

    Hi Clarita: I wanted to know about Plexus Bio 5. I am healing from adrenal fatigue issues for a year now. Another person on line mentioned how much Plexus helped them with AF. Could you please email information about the cost and what you would recommend for AF. I don’t particularly need to lose weight…5 pounds or so, but I really want to start feeling good. That is my main desire. Thank you so much! God bless you, Jill Hayes

  9. Anita Baer

    I am currently taking chemo and believe this product can help me as well. Plexus Slim and ProBio5 are what I am leaning towards, what are your thoughts on this. Blessing to you and your precious family..

  10. Sylvia Stoltzfus

    This is the first blog about Plexus I’ve read from someone who I sort of know! Found you by searching about it. Thanks for the testimony and I hope to find a great ambassador ASAP. Any recommendations? Please email me.

  11. Mary Davis

    Hi, Clarita! I am suffering from adrenal fatigue syndrome and have tried many supplements in the past which have worked for a time (even half a year at times) and then I’ve “crashed” again, back to square one, bedridden in a lot of pain. Does Plexus work long-term for adrenal fatigue, from what you’ve experienced and seen in others? Thanks so much!!!!!

  12. sherri

    Hello Clarita, Love your blog! I just found out I have Lyme and I also have a hormone imbalance,adrenal fatigue,low thyroid,high cholesterol,leaky gut,slightly insulin resistant and acne. A bunch of stuff that I just found out this year. I’m on a bunch of supplements and I’ve changed my diet. The lyme causes me to be very light headed and tired and suffer with some aches and pains. Would just like some advice. I just started the Plexus Mega today. Thanks a lot!

    1. The Cottage at 341 South Post author

      Hi Sherri! I apologize, I’ve been a bit MIA from this blog recently! But wow, you are experiencing so many health challenges! My heart goes out to you! Have you found a Plexus ambassador to help you and walk with you?

    1. The Cottage at 341 South Post author

      Hello there! Oh, I wish you could!! So many people have been tremendously helped with their Lyme disease through these products! As of now, the company doesn’t ship to Sweden. We ship to Canada, New Zealand, and Australia, and I hope that Europe will be added very soon! I wish you all the best as you heal and thrive once again!
