Plexus Slim Side Effects
No medication, supplement, or dietary aid is completely free of side effects. Even exercise has side effects. Being aware of the side effects that may arise when using Plexus Slim can not only help you to deal with them if they do arise, but can help you to take preventative measures to stop them from arising in the first place. Overall, the side effects associated with Plexus Slim are minor and most of them resolve after a short period of time.
Bloating and gas are the most significant side effect associated with Plexus Slim. Both arise as a result of the slowed absorption of fat from the digestive tract (a good thing for weight loss). Neither side effect is dangerous. Though they may cause discomfort, they often resolve quickly and spontaneously after about a week of use. Bloating and gas can be easily treated with over-the-counter medications.
There are no known interactions between Plexus Slim and any prescription medication. That said, it is important to consult with your physician before starting Plexus Slim, just as you would before starting any diet, supplement, or exercise plan.
Mood and Energy Levels
Many people who take Plexus Slim report improvements in their mood and energy levels. These are reported as side effects because mood and energy are not primary targets of Plexus Slim. Many people consider these side effects to be bonuses.
Decreased Blood Sugar Levels
Chromium, along with several other ingredients in Plexus Slim, can affect blood sugar. This is important for regulating glucose levels and controlling appetite, but can be problematic for people with diabetes, especially if they are taking insulin. Your doctor may need to adjust your insulin dose to accommodate your new, better-controlled blood sugar levels. Consult with your health care provider before and during your use of Plexus Slim if you take medications that affect your blood sugar levels.
The Big Picture
Plexus Slim is safe, natural, and effective. As with any supplement, there is the potential for side effects. The side effects associated with Plexus Slim are either mild and resolve quickly or are positive and thus add to the benefits of using this supplement. Overall, Plexus Slim is relatively devoid of side effects, making it a very attractive dietary supplement.
