    I have faithfully taken plexus triplex combo for two years. While taking it i have nursed 1 baby with no issues, bacane pregnant only gained 25 lbs delivered a perfect 7 lb 7 oz baby girl and am currently nursing her. I love the weight loss, energy levels, milk supply as well as all the health benefits i have gained

    Asked my Dr about this when I first found I was pregnant. He said he wouldn’t recommend this to someone suffering from thirst.

    Just FYI, plexus does third party testing. Their label says less than 2% caffeine in compliance with regulations, but third party testing found 0% caffeine. Also, they are not approved by the FDA because the FDA only covers food and drugs. All health and wellness supplements, vitamins, etc. Are also not approved by the FDA.

    Not only did my dr approve whike expecting my sins pediatrician approved it whike nursing. The accelerator and boost are no safe. But the Triplex, xfactor and megax are what I take

    I’m an ambassador for Plexus worldwide. I am also still breastfeeding my 2.5 year old daughter. I take the triplex which is the slim, probio5 and biocleanse. I will be taking the x factor multivitamin very soon. I believe in plexus and its products. My children can take these products. They are 100% plant based.

    An acquaintance is nursing while on Plexus Slim. While she raves about the amount of milk she is able to produce now that she is on Plexus, I can’t help but be concerned about the fact her child has severe immune issues and always seems to be sick. She has even gone as far as to discontinue working to become a stay at home mom in an effort to limit the child’s exposures to all potential illness-causing agents – yet she continues to drink Plexus. I am very curious to hear how many chronically sick babies are being nursed with Plexus supplements on board.

    Reading some material that says Alpha Lipoid Acid is a level L-4 and is hazardous while breastfeeding. It also says Chromium is an L3. I’m a Plexus ambassador but I will not put mine or my baby’s health ahead of the other benefits that Plexus Slim provides. Best to have a doctor or lactation consultant study these ingredients and give their input instead of reading other people’s opinions.

    Brittany, thank you I needed to hear that from an ambassador. I too am an ambassador and I’ve taken the supplement for a little over 2 months while nursing. At first felt that it was doing absolutely nothing other than it drying my milk up a bit at first. It wasn’t until I stopped weighing myself every day that I realized my cravings and raging hunger (normal for breastfeeding moms) were very well controlled and that I had lost 7 lbs! Of course I was ecstatic that I had lost weight but I couldn’t ignore the conviction that I’ve felt from the very beginning so I decided to stop taking it. I have now re-gained all 7 lbs and am back to feeling hungry all the time after just a week lol. I haven’t eaten terribly but I am lacking the self control I had while on the Slim. I’m just not convinced that this product is completely safe for my nursing baby and she’s more important than me losing those last 10 lbs. For now, I’ll start on a new excersise routine.

    Can someone tell me why the boost and accelorator aren’t safe while nursing? I’m just curious, all I’ve seen is what the article says, that there is to much caffeine. I’m currently weaning my 13 month old now, he’s down to 2 feelings a day. I didn’t know if it was just because it will dry you up or what? Thanks for any answers.

    I initially started taking Plexus Slim while breastfeeding in attempt to get rid of thrush that prescription medicines were not clearing up. I got approval from both my OB and baby’s pediatrician before starting. I had Been on Rx meds for 5 going on 6 weeks, it was terrible. I started Plexus, stopped the Rx. My thrush went away in 1 week,. It was a last ditch effort for me, had nothing to do with weight loss and I was actually surprised that it worked.
