Plexus Bio Cleanse is one of the “must-have” products if you are following the Plexus Triplex schedule. The Triplex Combo is a combination many can’t live without, but with it does come some unpleasant side effects, especially if your body isn’t used to the ingredients.
The Plexus product with the most common side effects is Plexus Bio Cleanse.
Plexus Bio Cleanse is meant to be taken twice a day, two capsules at a time. Many people, however, have problems with this schedule, as it does stir up the bowels. I have found that many people forget/aren’t informed to ease into this product, and have had some serious issues with stomach cramping and even diarrhea. If you are experiencing these symptoms, I definitely advise you to back off of the product.
There are 3 (sets) of ingredients in the Plexus Bio Cleanse capsules–a complex that helps with vitamin C absorption, Vitamin C, and Magnesium, which helps improve sleep and improves digestion.
Bioflavonoid Complex — orange peel, lemon peel & quince (a fruit)
- This complex aids in the absorption of Vitamin C, helps circulation and is also often used to treat allergies and inflammatory diseases. We need this!
- Vitamin C is one of the safest vitamins and provides incredible antioxidant support. It is used to treat the common cold, improves eye health by preventing cataracts, all while increasing good cholesterol. We need this!
- An important mineral to the body which helps relieve constipation and muscle aches, increases energy, treats insomnia, and decreases feelings of stress and anxiety. We need this!
Our mineral friend, Magnesium
Magnesium is a mineral with many benefits–when taken correctly and in the right dosage. Unfortunately, there are some unpleasant side effects associated with magnesium when we overtake magnesium, and this is where the abdominal cramping and diarrhea appear.
Here is the Plexus Bio Cleanse Label–note the serving size, which is for TWO capsules–If you are taking the recommended four capsules of the Bio Cleanse per day, you are actually taking 760mg/day.
Based on the magnesium chart above, I should be taking about 310mg/day, not 780mg.
If you are experiencing diarrhea, you may need to reduce the number of Plexus Bio Cleanse capsules you are taking daily!
I actually take a little more than the daily recommendation of magnesium due to issues with insomnia and constipation. I take one capsule in the morning after breakfast and one before bed. This is what works for me. Just remember to listen to your body.
