My Supplement Routine for Weight Loss, Acne, Hair Growth, Energy, & More

Yes, I am a Plexus Ambassador. But I’m not just here to promote my business, I promise. I use plenty of other supplements outside of the Plexus family that have done wonders for me as well! I’m just feeling good and I want y'all to feel your best too! So basically I’m just going to share what the supplement is, what it claims to do, and the honest effects that it has on me. 


I’m starting with Plexus products because after posting my progress picture I’ve received a lot of questions about what I’m taking and how I got to where I am, and I just want to be able to have the story all in one place! I’d just like to go ahead and say that this is not me just trying to make a sale, these are my honest thoughts and experiences. I value being real and trustworthy over possibly receiving a new customer anyday. 


Plexus 


Metaburn

https://plexusworldwide.com/carmenreynolds1/product/plexus-metaburn

Claims: Burns stubborn fat (especially in abs, hips, and thighs), improves metabolism, and supports mood, focus, and energy. 

Personal Effects: I’ve only been taking metaburn for a week or two now. For the entire time that I’ve been taking it, I’ve been eating terribly. I’ve been extremely busy and I’ve just eaten the foods that I can quickly warm up so I can get back to work. So in all honesty, I haven’t seen it’s most true effects. 

Even though I haven’t seen it’s best effects, I still think that it’s helped. I have more energy and have been in a much better mood over the past week. I’ve been way more motivated to work out which is a freaking miracle for me because I am absolutely never motivated to exercise. In all honesty, I haven’t noticed any fat burn but that’s because I’ve been eating like crap over the past few weeks. But in my opinion, I still feel like it’s doing a good job because I haven’t gained any weight or felt my pants getting super tight.



Balance

Claims: Maintain healthy blood sugar levels, reduces the absorption and glycemic index of carbs and sugars, supports weight loss, and helps reduce caloric intake. 

Personal Effects: I think that this product has been my saving grace over the past few weeks. Most importantly, I haven’t had sugar cravings which I usually have on a daily (if not hourly) basis. Frankly, I’m still in shock that this has worked this well. Additionally, I really do believe that the carbs are somehow diminishing because I’ve never been able to eat the way I have been without gaining at least 5-7 pounds, while looking like it too. I also feel like it’s given me a lot of relief when it comes to dieting/weight loss, because it still allows you to have those sweet treats too. I’m no longer feeling like I have to skip the desert as long as I have a primarily healthy diet. 



Bio Cleanse

https://plexusworldwide.com/carmenreynolds1/product/plexus-bio-cleanse

Claims: Kills gas, bloating, and discomfort. Clears out your gut by taking away the unwanted microbes and substances in your body. Helps promote regulation and improved gut health. 

Personal Effects: This is TMI, but I said I was gonna keep it real.. So, here we are. Before taking this product, I had a really hard time going to the bathroom which always made me feel SUPER bloated because I basically wasn’t getting rid of anything.. So it just kept building and building! I also really like this product because it doesn’t keep you on the toilet 24/7 like a laxative or detox tea/pill. It just clears you out on a daily basis to make sure that there’s no buildup in your gut. After I started taking these for about a week, my pants truly fit SO much better. I also lost 8 pounds.



Probio 5

https://plexusworldwide.com/carmenreynolds1/product/plexus-probio-5

Claims: Helps keep intestinal yeast in balance, supports a healthy intestinal tract and healthy digestion, improves natural response to imbalance, and promotes healthy bacteria counts and pH levels in the gut. 

Personal Effects: I honestly couldn’t tell you the noticeable effects that this product has had on me, aside from clearing up my face. I honestly didn’t know that was a main effect of this supplement until I had done some Google searching to see what it truly does. I saw amazing improvements so I truly believe that the probio 5 is the solution.  I have battled cystic acne my entire life but once I started taking this, the overall tone of my face (redness) improved and I wasn’t getting a bunch of little bumps all around my face anymore. 



Slim

https://plexusworldwide.com/carmenreynolds1/product/plexus-slim-hunger-control

Claims: Clinically demonstrated to help you lose weight and reduce hunger, supports healthy glucose metabolism and enhanced satiation and satiety, and increases hydration.

Personal Effects: This has completely curbed my hunger. At the start of taking this product, I literally had to force myself to eat multiple times a day. I’ve been an overeater for my entire life, so this has really been a game changer for me. I’m also super picky with the way things taste, but this tastes like pink lemonade so it’s been super easy to drink. I also think that the sweetness helps curb the sugar cravings because I feel like I’m already getting some by drinking this. I think this was also a large contributor to me losing 8 pounds.


Other Products

OLLY Flawless Complexion Gummies

https://www.target.com/p/olly-flawless-complexion-dietary-supplement-gummies-berry-fresh-50ct/-/A-51657181

Claims: Regulates hormones to give you clear skin. 

Personal Effect: This is one of the greatest finds I’ve ever made. As I said earlier, I have battled with cystic acne my entire life and this product has been a saving grace as well. While the Probio5 helps my skin tone and smaller acne, this helps get rid of the cystic/large acne. They don’t taste great, but definitely worth it for the effects. 


Elderberry Gummies

https://amzn.to/30hykwR

Claims: Has vitamin C and Zinc that helps support your immune health. 

Personal Effect: Since Corona, I have wanted to do everything in my power to build up some immunity! I don’t feel a huge change but my favorite thing about them is that they taste like candy.. So good!


Biotin Gummies

https://amzn.to/2PaiLAX

Claims: May help support healthy hair, skin and nails in those deficient in biotin. Biotin also supports carbohydrate, protein and fat metabolism.

Personal Effect: I literally just started taking these about 2 days ago so I can’t really commit to any statement right now. I wanted to make the hair grow around my forehead so I’m hoping this will help! I’m also liking all of the other claims it’s making.. So I’ll come back with an update on this one. Just wanted to mention this because it’s super cheap and also tastes amazing!!


Lastly, we have my antidepressants. They aren’t a “supplement” but they do help my mood, energy levels, motivation, and more. Can’t say enough good things about them, and will answer any questions you may have! 


Alright, so that’s all the supplements I take in a day! I spread them out throughout the day depending on the claims that it makes. For example, if I know one will give me energy (Metaburn, antidepressants) then I will take it in the morning. But that’s everything I have on the list. :) If you have any questions, feel free to DM me on Instagram (@carmenreynolds)! Also, if you were impressed with my honest review and interested in trying Plexus or becoming an ambassador, feel free to reach out to me on there as well. I will answer questions, recommend products, and find you some discounts!
