HOW SLIM HUNGER CONTROL WORKS
Whether you want to look your best for an upcoming event or to simply maintain a healthy weight, Slim Hunger Control can help. This delicious pink drink is specially formulated with polydextrose at levels clinically demonstrated to help curb your hunger–all with a refreshing blood orange, lemon,
lime flavor and only 20 calories!*


When you drink Slim Hunger Control 30-60 minutes before a meal, the included polydextrose attracts water and swells, taking up space in your stomach, which helps you feel full and reduces your desire to overeat. The polydextrose also leaves the stomach
slowly, so you feel satiated even longer.*


Experiencing less hunger gives you more control, enabling you to form healthier eating habits that can lead to weight loss. The chromium found in Slim also helps support a healthy glucose metabolism.*


Slim Hunger Control is the newest member of the Slim family, designed to reduce hunger and support your weight loss goals. For the added benefit of balancing your gut microbiome, use Slim Microbiome Activating alongside Slim Hunger Control. These two products work hand in hand to help you manage your weight and feel healthy and happy.*


The results speak for themselves. In a randomized,
double-blind placebo-controlled study of 175 participants, Slim was clinically demonstrated to help people lose weight both safely and effectively.◊◊*

SUGGESTED USAGE

Pour one packet of Slim Hunger Control into 12-20 ounces of water, shake well, and drink 30-60 minutes before a meal.

THE UNHEALTHY LIFESTYLE CRISIS
We all need food to live. It’s a fact of life we can’t avoid. But for millions of people around the world, their lifestyle choices are causing significant weight management problems. Globally, the number of overweight adults has increased by
28% since the early 1980s.
1


What’s causing this troublesome crisis? One factor is that high-calorie foods have become increasingly available, accessible, and affordable.2 Triggers such as stress and negative mood states also contribute since they can increase the desire to eat “comfort” foods and lead to excessive binge eating.3,4


Developing healthy eating habits is a critical component of successful, long-term weight  management.3 But when hunger increases your desire for high-calorie foods, is it possible to take back control?5

WHO SHOULD USE THIS PRODUCT?
Slim Hunger Control is a premium health supplement that’s clinically demonstrated to help you lose weight and support a healthy glucose metabolism. If you’d like to take more control over hunger to help reach your weight loss goals, Slim Hunger Control is for you.*


DID YOU KNOW?
Research suggests that hunger increases the desire to consume high-calorie foods.5


Excessive overeating makes shedding pounds increasingly difficult, and can even negatively alter your body’s gastrointestinal chemistry that signals you’re full. This can cause a spiral effect, increasing feelings of hunger and leading to further weight gain.6

SLIM HUNGER CONTROL INGREDIENT GLOSSARY

Polydextrose (Naturally derived):


Polydextrose is a large plant based polysaccharide derived from Non-GMO corn starch. Unlike starch however, the carbohydrates in polydextrose are uniquely linked together, making them resistant to our digestive enzymes. Because polydextrose is not digested and partially fermented in the gut, it has an energy value of only 1 kcal/ gram. Thus, polydextrose is effective in helping to reduce calorie intake and its intake is also associated with increased prebiotic activity. Polydextrose is a source of dietary fiber that helps you feel fuller and eat less. In a blinded, randomized placebo controlled study, researchers found that pre-meal supplements containing the dose of polydextrose found in Slim reduced subject's desire to eat before prior to the following meal and was still lower prior to the next meal later in the day (Hull et al. 2002).7 Polydextrose is found in Slim Hunger Control.*




Green coffee bean extract (Natural):


Green coffee bean extract is derived from coffee that has not yet been roasted. Green coffee beans have a higher level of Chlorogenic acid compared to regular, roasted coffee beans. Chlorogenic acid is a phytochemical that acts as an alphaglucosidase inhibitor. That means that Chlorogenic acid can help maintain healthy blood glucose already in the normal range. Chlorogenic acid may also induce body fat loss via increasing body heat produced. Plexus Slim uses a Non-GMO green coffee bean extract standardized to 50% Chlorogenic acid and
less than 2% of natural caffeine.*




Garcinia Cambogia (Garcinia Cambogia) fruit extract (Natural):


Garcinia Cambogia is a citrus fruit tree that grows in Southeast Asia. Plexus uses a standardized extract from the fruit rind that contains a phytonutrient called hydroxycitric acid (HCA), which is a bioactive compound. Plexus Slim uses a Non-GMO Garcinia Cambogia extract.




NATURAL INGREDIENTS


Our number one priority of Plexus® is to use natural, non-GMO ingredients in our products whenever possible. Ingredients in this category are primarily obtained directly from a natural source, or they may be obtained through simple chemical reactions like fermentation. Such reactions do not significantly alter the chemical structure of the original natural ingredient. For example, probiotics often utilize fermentation during the manufacturing process. Ingredients like this are categorized as natural.




Beet (Beta vulgaris) root extract (Natural):


Beet root is the red or purple root vegetable known as the beet root or garden beet. Plexus uses Non-GMO beet root which provides natural color in Plexus Slim.




Stevia (Stevia rebaudiana) leaf extract (Natural):


Stevia is a perennial herb native to South America that has been used for centuries as a medicinal herb and a natural sweetener. The extract is prepared from the sweet-tasting leaves, and is standardized to 99% Rebaudioside A. The extract is then purified by filtration and crystallized into a compound that is typically 200 times sweeter than table sugar, and has zero-calories. Plexus uses a 100% pure, Non-GMO Stevia rebaudiana.




White Mulberry (Morus alba) fruit extract (Natural):


White mulberry fruit has a long history of medicinal use in China and Europe, and contains health promoting phytonutrients. White mulberry extract is considered a superfood and a potent antioxidant. Plexus® uses Non-GMO version of white mulberry which is found in Plexus Slim.*




Citric acid (Naturally derived):


Citric acid can be found naturally in citrus fruits such as lemons and oranges. It is used to enhance the flavor of foods and beverages. Plexus citric acid is Non-GMO.




Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) (Scientifically formulated):


Alpha Lipoic Acid is a fatty acid, found naturally inside every cell in the body. ALA is a potent antioxidant and helps recycle other antioxidants such as Vitamin C and E and glutathione. Alpha Lipoic Acid is found in Plexus Slim and Plexus Nerve™.*




Chromium polynicotinate (Scientifically formulated):


Chromium polynicotinate is a combination of chromium and niacin. This form of chromium has been found to be a more bioavailable source. Chromium is an essential trace mineral that supports healthy glucose metabolism. Chromium polynicotinate also helps facilitate glucose transport into cells.*




SCIENTIFICALLY FORMULATED INGREDIENTS


Sometimes, a sufficiently concentrated source of an ingredient cannot be found in nature, nor can it be derived from natural sources. In these instances, advances in nutritional technology allow us to use highly bioavailable ingredients formulated from biochemical building blocks. Whenever we use these types of ingredients, they are tested thoroughly to ensure bioavailability, purity, and potency.




NATURALLY DERIVED INGREDIENTS


Although an ingredient may be found in nature, it may not occur in a concentration that is high enough for our high potency formulations. Fortunately, such ingredients can often be derived from natural sources through a series of chemical processes including many of those described for natural ingredients. Naturally derived also includes ingredients originating from natural sources which undergo significant modifications so that their final form is structurally and functionally different from the starting material. Although properties of such ingredients have been changed, they are extensively tested for safety and efficacy. This subcategory of “naturally sourced” ingredients like cellulose which is a natural plant fiber, originating from wood pulp. In this case, it is custom tailored by a series of chemical modifications so that it takes on different properties that make it functionally advantageous to certain products.




Silicon dioxide (Scientifically formulated):


Silica is one of the most abundant minerals on earth. In Plexus Slim, the form used is ultra-pure and free of contaminants and helps powders mix more easily.




Cellulose gum (Naturally derived):


Cellulose gum comes from natural cellulose obtained from wood pulp and cotton fibers. A natural, Non-GMO version of cellulose is modified to form a gum that helps give a well rounded mouth feel in Plexus Slim.
