PLEXUS BALANCE

Block & Balance*


Balance is the most modern, technologically-advanced formula for blood sugar support and carb control that Plexus has ever created. With three distinct mechanisms of action, when taken regularly, each capsule can help neutralize some of the negative effects of carbs and sugars by reducing the enzymes that break them down, helping shield the body from some absorption.*

BALANCE BENEFITS

ADD SOME BALANCE TO YOUR DAILY ROUTINE

Balance is the perfect addition to any weight management regimen.

Pair Balance with Slim Hunger Control for satiety support along with healthy glucose level support, or with Slim Microbiome Activating for gut health and weight loss support.^*

Love using Plexus Lean as a healthy meal replacement or nourishing snack? Try taking Balance before a non-Lean meal to help maintain blood sugar already within a normal range.*

Try it with TriPlex! Plexus’ Triplex system supports weight loss and gut health, while also supporting healthy glucose metabolism. Adding Balance to the mix provides even more healthy blood glucose support.^*

HOW BALANCE WORKS

Balance works in three distinct ways to help provide blood sugar support and carb control: (1) Balance minimizes unwanted blood sugar spikes by slowing the speed at which carbs and sugars are digested, so you get a steady release of energy into the bloodstream; (2) it reduces the absorption of carbs, leaving them undigested so they can be gradually broken down by gut bacteria, without releasing a flood of glucose into the body; and (3) it helps the body more efficiently manage glucose levels, minimizing glucose peaks and valleys so you can avoid that dreaded post-meal crash.*

 

Balance contains natural, clinically-studied ingredients like white kidney bean extract, common bean extract, cinnamon bark extract, and mulberry leaf extract. Together, these ingredients create a technologically-advanced formula for daily blood glucose support and carb control.*

SUGGESTED USE

Take Balance 20-30 minutes before your largest meal of the day to help counteract the effects of carbs and sugars.*

SKIP THE CRASH- NOT THE CARBS

Cutting carbs and sugars from the diet is nearly impossible—especially considering the fact that they’re often hidden. Even seemingly healthy foods can contain surprising amounts of sugar. These high-glycemic foods cause your blood sugar levels to skyrocket...and then crash in a few hours.

These spikes can throw off your metabolism, leading to exhaustion and excess fat storage. Plus, because these foods are digested quickly, they don’t keep you feeling full until your next meal, which sets you up for overeating and potential weight gain.

Plexus Balance was made to counteract the effects of carbs and sugars on your blood glucose levels, so you can enjoy your favorite foods without the spikes or crashes. By helping support healthy blood glucose levels already within a normal range, Balance also supports your weight management goals, making it the perfect addition to any health and happiness routine.^*

WHO SHOULD USE THIS PRODUCT?

Balance is for anyone who is interested in supporting healthy blood glucose levels. Balance is also for anyone who wants to slow the negative effects of carbs and sugars in the diet, or who want to reduce post-meal lethargy or energy crashes. Finally, Balance is for individuals interested in weight management and a healthier lifestyle.*

BALANCE FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

White Kidney Bean Extract (Phaseolus vulgaris (natural)


An ingredient that is extracted from uncooked white kidney beans. This cultivar of bean is rich in special types of glycoproteins. These glycoproteins reduce the function of α-amylase, the digestive enzyme responsible for the breakdown of starch molecules into sugar. This works due to the glycoproteins binding with the enzyme in such a way that blocks starch from accessing the active part of the enzyme, reducing the capacity to breakdown starch, resulting in a much slower release of glucose from complex carbs.*




Common Bean Extract (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) (natural)


Phaseolus vulgaris, also known as the common bean, is an annual plant grown worldwide for its edible dry seeds (called beans). This ingredient is extracted from uncooked cranberry beans, another cultivar of bean that is rich in special types of glycoproteins that reduce the function of α-amylase, the digestive enzyme responsible for the breakdown of starch molecules into sugar. The process by which these glycoproteins bind to α-amylase to block its activity takes a little bit of time and is why for optimal results, Balance should be taken with or before your largest meal of the day.*




Cinnamon Bark Extract (Cinnamomum cassia) (natural)


Cinnamon, the spice, is made from the ground dried bark of plants from the genus cinnamomum. Cinnamon has been cultivated for centuries due to its use in traditional Chinese medicine as well as its unique, warm spice flavor that it is known for. Polyphenols found in cinnamon are thought to balance the endocrine system's hormonal response to food, thereby helping maintain healthy blood glucose levels. Though often considered inferior in taste quality to Ceylon cinnamon (Cinnamomum verum), Cinnamomum cassia is more abundant in the bioactives responsible for cinnamon’s blood glucose management benefits and is the most extensively studied.*




Mulberry Leaf Extract (Morus alba L.) (natural)


Native to China, mulberry trees have been cultivated for centuries due to their leaves being the sole food source of silkworms, used for silk production. Their leaves have also been consumed by humans in the form of mulberry tea for centuries as well. Mulberry leaves and stems are abundant in special types of nitrogen containing sugars, the most abundant of which is 1-deoxynojirimycin, also called moranoline, but often abbreviated DNJ. DNJ is an inhibitor of α-glucosidase enzymes in our small intestine, effectively slowing down and reducing the ability of our digestive enzymes to breakdown simple sugars like sucrose into their monosaccharide forms (glucose and fructose). Sugars cannot be absorbed unless they are broken down into monosaccharides. Additional minor components in mulberry leaf extract have been found to reduce intestinal absorption of glucose, making this a multifaceted carb blocking ingredient.*

Excipients/non-actives

Dicaicium Phosphate (naturally derived)


This is added to help with flow of the product ingredients and compaction during encapsulation.




Sunflower oil powder (naturally derived)


Sunflower oil is extracted from the seeds of the sunflower. This is used as a natural lubricant to help prevent sticking to metal contact surfaces during encapsulation.




Silicon Dioxide Powder (naturally derived)


This is added to the powder mixture in order to ease the flow of the material through the manufacturing equipment, and to remove moisture to prevent the powder from clumping.




Hypromellose (vegetarian capsule) (naturally derived)


The capsule shell is made from hypromellose, derived from pine trees. This capsule shell is non-GMO, and vegan. It is a natural and non-GMO filler (not flow agent), to insure specified weight is met consistently during encapsulation by adequately filling the capsule.




Microcrystalline cellulose (naturally derived)


Cellulose is the structural component of the primary cell wall of green plants, a fine powder used as a binding agent in tablets the body can break down to absorb at the cellular level.
