What is Plexus X Factor?
This is another Plexus product that I am really interested in. The first thing I discovered is that there was aloe in it and that it helps absorb vitamins and nutrients. I have seen different health shake stores give out a shot of aloe with their shakes so I figured it probably worked. Of course I had to see if there was any actual scientific proof behind this idea and what I found was incredible.
In a study on aloe conducted by the University of Scranton, there is a 304% absorption rate of vitamins when aloe is ingested. This is amazing because when you are working out and losing weight, your body uses many of its vitamins and minerals. This multi-vitamin allows for three times the absorption.
Below, you can see the description of Plexus X Factor given on the Plexus website.
Description: Consuming multi vitamin supplements is a good thing. With our poor diets and all the other threats to our health, it’s critical to have a high-quality food source of vital nutrients. But did you know that even if you’re taking a multivitamin product, you’re probably not getting nearly the level of superior-quality nutrients you thought you were? In fact, studies suggest that the majority of multivitamin products are of poor quality and difficult for the body’s digestive tract to break down, digest and absorb. But there’s great news! Plexus, a world-recognized leader in the health and nutritional industries, has developed a breakthrough in vitamin supplements. Plexus XFactor is a turbocharged multivitamin and antioxidant supplement with a never-before-seen formulation of a patented aloe blend, New Zealand Blackcurrant, and vitamins, all of which results in vastly improved absorption and assimilation for optimal nutrition and wellness protection.
How do you take Plexus X Factor?
I recommend you take two capsules every morning right after breakfast. It will give you a boost in energy as well as help replenish vitamins and minerals lost from work outs. You should also take vitamins any time you change your eating habits, and because Plexus Slim causes you to eat less, this is very important.
These are the features and benefits listed on the Plexus website.

Vitamin Blend: Vitamin C, D, E, B6 and B12
Thiamine (as Thiamine HCI): This is actually another vitamin in the vitamin B family. It helps the body metabolize fats and protein. Another cool fact about this vitamin is that it is known as an “anti-stress” vitamin because it strengthens the body’s immune system and improves its ability to withstand stressful conditions.
Riboflavin: Vitamin B2, is important for body growth and red blood cell production and helps in releasing energy from carbohydrates.
Niacin (as Inositol Hexanicotinate): Same as Plexus Accelerator Plus(+) This is a very common ingredient in energy supplements. It is a part of the vitamin B family (B3 to be exact). According to webMD it is generally well tolerated in usual doses.
Folate (Folic Acid): Same as Plexus Accelerator Plus(+). B9, seeing a trend yet? This is another common ingredient in many things that we eat every day. It is also used in higher doses to prevent a wide range of things from memory loss to colon cancer.
Pantothenic Acid (as Calcium D-Pantothenate): Vitamin B5, yet again, another vitamin in the “B” family. There is no doubt that vitamin B helps you generate more energy as well as metabolize fat. That makes this an excellent addition to this vitamin formula.
Calcium (as Calcium Ascorbate and Calcium D-Pantothenate): A study I found on WebMD, conducted by Hang Shi, a postdoctoral student in the Nutrition Institute at the University of Tennessee at Knoxville, showed amazing results. When low-fat calcium was added to the diet of obesity-induced mice, they showed a 42% decrease in body fat. The mice without the low-fat calcium showed an 8% body fat loss. Pretty impressive when used correctly (just so you know, this one was very difficult to find).
Aloe Vera Blend: This aloe vera blend is naturally abundant in vitamin A, B vitamins, vitamin C, vitamin E, niacin, folic acid, zinc, potassium, magnesium, calcium, chromium, selenium, etc. As I said before, the University of Scranton’s study on aloe shows that there is a 304% rate of vitamin and mineral absorption when consuming aloe with vitamins. There are also many other great uses for aloe.
New Zealand Blackcurrant Fruit Extract (std. min. 30% Anthocyanins): New Zealand Blackcurrant fruit extract is a very powerful antioxidant used in many natural weight loss supplements. It is a perfect companion ingredient in Plexus X Factor.
Guar Gum Soluble Fiber: Guar Gum is a pretty cool fiber and here’s why. It normalizes the moisture content of the stool, absorbing excess liquid in diarrhea, and softening the stool in constipation. So it works both ways to ensure you are regular and it isn’t regular diarrhea.
Does Plexus X Factor have any side effects?
From what I have found, there are no negative side effects to Plexus X Factor. Usually, the only negative side effects to multi-vitamins come from iron being included in the vitamin. Plexus X Factor does not contain iron, so that won’t be an issue.
After reviewing Plexus X Factor, I really like this addition to the Plexus product line. I have always liked the idea of supplements and something that actually lets me get more out of all the supplements that I take really excites me. I mean, you get three times the benefits of anything that you take while you are taking Plexus X Factor. This is not only a multi-vitamin, but a vitamin booster as well and anything that gives you a 304% absorption rate is incredible. I recommend that when you get Plexus Slim, Plexus X Factor is an addition that you don’t want to go without.
