I like quality, but I want it at a good price!
After I found out how GREAT Plexus Slim works, I started to wonder how the retail price for this drink would compare to a month's supply of the ingredients.
I read the label on my pack of Slim and started shopping. Of course, I don't have the 'secret formula' for HOW these ingredients should be mixed. For this reason, I just read the labels on each item to determine how much the directions said should be used each day. I compiled this table to break down how much a day's worth of each item would cost. These were totaled to give a total price per day, multiplied by 30 for a price per month.
And the results....
Except for polydextrose, prices are from iHerb.com at the time of this post -- 11/5/13
