Manufacturing And Health FAQs
The following are frequently asked questions and answers related to manufacturing, health, and ingredients.
|When it Comes to:
|The Facts Are:
|Using Beyond Expiration Date
Plexus recommends the products be used within the expiration date for best efficacy and flavor. Although products can be safely consumed past the expiration date, it’s possible the flavor and amount of vitamins, minerals, and nutrients may diminish over time.
Experiencing side effects with Plexus Protein+ is not common. However, certain people who are not used to products rich in protein or fibre may experience temporary gas and bloating. One way to prevent this is to start with a smaller amount — such as 1 scoop per day — and then gradually increase your intake over 1 to 3 weeks. Your body should adjust to the additional fibre and protein over time.
Plexus Protein+ is not recommended for use by children under 18 because the product was formulated to meet the nutritional needs of adults.
|Any Allergy Concerns
Whey protein is a by-product of milk. Although the whey we use contains very little lactose, it would not be suitable for those who have a dairy allergy. View What if I have a medical, injury, illness, pregnancy, nursing, or allergy concern about a Plexus® product or the ingredients?
|If Pregnant or Breastfeeding
If you are pregnant or nursing, you should consult your physician prior to beginning any new supplementation, diet, or exercise program.
