PLEXUS LEAN
Plexus Lean is fast food you can actually feel good about. This supercharged meal replacement shake delivers nutrition, weight loss^ benefits, and energy—all with a smooth, creamy texture and two delicious flavor options.


Power packed with 15 grams of rBGH-free† whey protein, Plexus Lean will satisfy your hunger while helping to promote weight loss^. Add to that 24 essential vitamins and minerals (including 5-MTHF Folate, Calcium, Vitamins A, C, E, and more), and you have all the nutrition of a healthy meal in a convenient, easy-to-prepare shake.


Plexus Lean is also specifically formulated to be good for your gut, with 5g of dietary fiber per serving including prebiotic fibers that promote the growth of good gut microbes.


With plenty of protein and fiber to help you feel satisfied, you’re on your way to better health! Plexus Lean can help you reach your weight loss^ goals and fuel your body with the nutrients it needs to function at its best. And with delectably smooth texture and mouthwatering Milk Chocolate and Creamy Vanilla flavors, Lean is about to become your new favorite meal, snack, or anytime treat.

ADVANCED BIOAVAILABILITY
Most protein shakes are just that – protein with not much else. Sometimes they sprinkle in a few vitamins and minerals to spruce up their labels but even then, those nutrients are often in cheap forms that the body has a hard time absorbing, meaning they go to waste. Plexus Lean uses forms of key nutrients—including 5-MTHF folate—that are designed to be more bioavailable than standard vitamins, so they’re easily assimilated and can deliver maximum benefit to the body.


A HEALTHY GUT WITH EVERY GLASS
Plexus Lean contains five grams of dietary fiber including prebiotic fiber from guar gum that supports digestion and gut health. Prebiotics work to selectively feed beneficial microbes in your gut microbiome. It’s gut health, in a glass.

WHO SHOULD USE THIS PRODUCT?
Plexus Lean is the convenient meal replacement solution that delivers optimal nutrition and weight loss^ benefits, all with an incredible taste. It’s perfect for anyone looking for a healthy and convenient meal replacement or satisfying snack. Lean is not recommended for use by children under 18 because the product was formulated to meet the nutritional needs of adults.

NOURISH YOURSELF, HELP SOMEONE IN NEED

Plexus® and Plexus Charities launched the Nourish One™ Initiative to help provide meals to people who need them most. With Nourish One, each purchased serving of Plexus Lean contributes a monetary donation to our partner, Feeding America®–the nation’s largest domestic hunger relief organization.

2. Plexus and Plexus Charities gives a contribution to Feeding America
3. Feeding America partners with over 200 member food banks to help people in need

GO AHEAD, FALL IN LOVE WITH FAST FOOD

Unhealthy food is everywhere we turn. Our supermarkets are overrun by cheaply-made foods that are loaded with extra salt, sugar, fat, and preservatives. But our busy schedules don’t always allow us to sit down for a well-balanced meal –making the drive thru look even more tempting. Isn’t it time for a convenient meal replacement option that’s filling enough to be a complete meal, delicious enough to crave, and nutritious enough to help you lose weight^ or maintain your healthy lifestyle without sacrificing key nutrients?

WHAT'S INSIDE?
To create a better meal replacement shake, we knew we’d have to include ingredients that were healthy, bioavailable, and high quality. 


HERE'S WHAT MADE THE CUT:

  • 15 grams of ultra-pure, rBHG-free† whey protein

  • 24 grams of protein when prepared with 8 oz. nonfat milk

  • 5 grams of dietary fiber, including prebiotic fiber to support digestive health

  • Highly bioavailable 5-MTHF folate

  • Highly bioavailable forms of other vitamins like B-Vitamins, Calcium, Potassium, Vitamins A, D and E, Zinc and more

  • A complete amino acid profile, including leucine, isoleucine, and valine

  • Contains lecithin, a source of choline, along with the choline found in milk, to support brain health and more


WHAT'S NOT?
We also wanted to leave out the questionable “stuff” that’s usually found in protein powders. 


THAT'S WHY PLEXUS LEAN IS:

  • Free from soy and gluten allergens

  • Non-GMO

  • Free of artificial flavors, artificial colors, and artificial sweeteners

  • Free of preservatives, carrageenan, dipotassium phosphate and magnesium stearate

THE IMPORTANCE OF PROTEIN

Getting enough protein can be a challenge, especially when you're on a calorie-restricted diet. But protein is key to losing^ or maintaining weight^ because it helps to support lean muscle–and it’s more satisfying than simple carbohydrates. Lean Whey provides 15 grams of protein per serving and 24 grams when prepared with milk, including amino acids like Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine for muscle support. These ingredients fuel your body with what it needs to function at its best every single day.
