Plexilean provides a full list of ingredients used including Green tea, Hoodia gordonii, chromium picolinate, and caffeine. They provide amounts on about half the ingredients, which is better than most. Caffeine and green tea have been known to stimulate the metabolism and burn fat at a higher rate, possibly producing significant results like those promised by Plexilean. Chromium picolinate has also been studied and shown by multiple clinical studies to promote more weight loss than diet and exercise alone.
Plexilean says that they use more hoodia than Trimspa 32X and more chromium picolinate than Hydroxycut. Phenocerin and Lipocerin say the same thing. It’s hard to disprove, because neither Hydroxycut or Trimspa 32X gives a particular amount used on those two ingredients. Another thing Plexilean shares in common with Phenocerin and Lipolean is the line, “If those three ingredients were all that Plexilean had, it would be a potent fat-fighter and an amazing value…but that’s not all!” Phenocerin’s website states, “If those ingredients were all that Phenocerin had, it would be a potent fat-fighter and an amazing value…but that’s not all!” The seller accidentally uses the name “Metabolene” in their testimonials, a product which has been discontinued. But one of their testimonial subjects looks suspiciously similar to one of the Lipocerin testimonial subjects.
Aside from bad and unoriginal marketing, the formula is worthless. They focus on green tea, but they only use 100mg. In addition, they use caffeine, but only 50mg. The recommended dose for either ingredient for effective weight loss is around 200-300mg. While chromium picolinate has been shown to promote weight loss, that weight loss is gradual, nowhere near the “30 pounds in 30 days” advertised by Plexilean. Hoodia gordonii is extremely rare, and as such 99% of manufacturers use imitations or fillers as “Hoodia.” Those who use the real thing provide certification, which Plexilean does not. For those who find Plexilean does nothing for them or does not live up to its advertisement, there is no money back or satisfaction guarantee, even for unopened packages.
Overall Impression of Plexilean:
Plexilean uses horrible marketing they copied from another company, testimonials with the wrong product name, and even pictures suspiciously similar to those found on another website. They advertise 3 major ingredients, but one is probably an imitation, another doesn’t have anywhere near the amount required to promote weight loss, and the last one promotes extremely gradual weight loss for individuals combining it with a sensible diet and exercise program. To add insult to injury, there is no return policy whatsoever. In short, Plexilean is a monumental waste of money.
