When it comes to nutrition and supplements, it’s a jungle out there! Confusion about choices, misleading claims, and a shortage of knowledgeable guidance – no wonder you’re confused! And then there’s Plexus, offering high quality products for digestive health, optimal nutrition, and youthful looking skin.
Asheville Plexus distributor Karen Sargent became a Plexus ambassador after seeing some amazing benefits from the products to her own health and well-being. Through her experiences, some of the Plexus products became her favorites.
“I love the TriPlex combo and have taken it for almost 5 years,” Karen said. TriPlex consists of three products: Slim (the “pink drink” that supports healthy glucose metabolism), ProBio5 (a probiotic/enzyme), and BioCleanse (a gentle cleansing agent).
“Plexus focuses on balancing the body from the inside,” Karen said. “Most of the health issues we deal with are really just symptoms, but Plexus supplements address the root cause – blood sugar imbalance, inflammation, and gut health. Common benefits are more energy, better sleep, healthy digestive function, stronger immune system, reduced inflammation, less “brain fog” and chronic discomfort, improvement in autoimmune diseases, healthy weight management, improved blood sugar numbers, and healthy cholesterol levels.”
If Karen had to choose only one Plexus formula, it would be ProBio5, a probiotic whose effectiveness comes from the combination of good bacteria, enzymes, and an antifungal. What makes this product unique and so effective is that it destroys yeast overgrowth first so the good bacteria have room to colonize and thrive. No other probiotic does that.”
“I love what Plexus has done for my husband and me, but I’m more grateful for what it’s done in my children’s lives. My daughter Leah is a violinist and developed an overuse injury in college. She tried every available remedy and finally had cortisone injections to get through her senior recital. After graduation she put her instrument away and didn’t play for more than three years.
“Then Leah began taking TriPlex and within a few months she was completely pain-free. She now teaches middle-school orchestra and plays professionally with no pain. But that’s not all Plexus has done for her.
“Leah suffered with anxiety and PMDD for many years. Getting her body balanced from the inside helped her chronic pain, but she still struggled emotionally and wanted to feel better. When Plexus launched a second probiotic, VitalBiome, which includes bacterial strains shown to help with anxiety and stress, Leah tried it. After a month, my daughter Abbey (her roommate) called me and said, ‘I don’t know what Leah’s taking, but she’s a different person!’ To say that Plexus has changed Leah’s life is not an understatement!”
Karen is always on the lookout for dedicated Plexus ambassadors. “The best ambassadors are products of the products,” she said. “When someone knows first-hand how life changing these supplements are, you can’t shut them down!”
That’s how it began for Karen. “I wanted to lose 10 pounds before my son’s wedding, but the harder I tried, the more frustrated I became. I had no energy, never slept well, craved the wrong foods, and felt hopeless. I’d been listening to my daughters talk about this pink drink, and I just rolled my eyes at what I thought was a scam. Finally, when I saw the pictures of myself at my son’s wedding, I knew I had to at least try it. In the first week I felt more energetic than I had in years and noticed I had less appetite. My sugar cravings disappeared and I began going for a walk after work. By the end of the month, all my pants were loose even though I’d only lost 3 pounds. But best of all, I was feeling so much better! I didn’t realize the extent of my brain fog until it was gone! In the second month, I put my husband on Slim and we’ve never looked back. Together we’ve lost 47 pounds. We’re in our late 50s and have more energy and better health than in our 30s!”
Karen didn’t go into Plexus with the idea of doing it as a business. “When friends started noticing changes in us and asking what we were doing, I had to tell them. So I started sharing what we were doing, and friends began joining me. At first I made enough to cover the cost of our products. Then it became a more significant income that enabled me to quit my job as an editor.”
Company integrity is a very important factor with Plexus ambassadors. “Their philosophy is clear from the start,” Karen said. “To build relationships, put people first, and support true health from the inside out with science-based products that work and that are always high quality and safe. Our core beliefs are simple: be trustworthy, be honest, be reliable, and be responsible.”
So whether your goal is weight loss, greater energy, more youthful skin, or a great independent business, call Karen and find out more about Plexus. “This business isn’t about sales; it’s about people being healthy and happy. Relationships are our focus, and our team approach is company-wide.”
Don’t take anyone’s word for it; find out for yourself if Plexus products are right for you. All Plexus products come with a 60-day money-back guarantee. Use them for 60 days risk-free. “This could be the last thing you ever have to try!” Karen said.

Are you looking for the perfect gift for the person who has “everything?” We all have friends who don’t want any more “stuff” to clutter up their homes, even if our gifts are thoughtful and given with loving intentions. The perfect solution is a gift from Edible Arrangements. It’s healthy, delicious, and after it’s eaten, it disappears without a trace!
Edible Arrangements owners Diana King and Susan Rossignol strive to connect with every customer to make their occasions special. “We know we are an extension of the message a loved one is trying to deliver,” Diana says, “whether it be a birthday, anniversary or just someone wanting to say thank you. We take it seriously and are so grateful we were chosen to be part of their message. Especially if they need to send a get well bouquet to someone in the hospital, or a sympathy bouquet to a family, we will make it special.”
Edible Arrangements has served the Asheville area since 2005, creating unique gifts for many occasions. “Our number one occasion is birthdays, and we have hundreds of different types of arrangements all made with fresh fruit, “Diana says. “Our focal point is our pineapples that we use to create shapes to define the arrangement. We surround this with fresh honeydew, cantaloupe, strawberries topped with red seedless grapes. Some of the arrangements we make can be with just pineapples and strawberries and others will include oranges and dipped apple shaped like a donut.”
Other special occasions are holidays, especially Valentine’s Day, Mothers Day, and Christmas. “Each holiday we focus our energy on creating special baskets themed to the holiday or events like basketball designs, chocolate Easter bunny pineapples, shamrocks for St. Patrick’s Day or snowmen and reindeer during Christmas,” Diana explains. “In the summer, gift creations include fruits like kiwi, watermelon, mangos, and blueberries.”
In addition to amazing edible gift creations, you can also get great fresh fruit smoothies at Edible Arrangements. “This is something a lot of people do not realize we do, and we are working to distinguish ourselves from other smoothie places that use syrupy products,” Diana says. “We have a grab and go section to our store that allows a customer to see our gourmet dipped fruit options and create their own quick pickup boxes of singles, half dozen or even a full dozen of dipped, apples, bananas, strawberries and pineapples.“
Diana says her favorite treats at Edible Arrangements are the smiles she gets from happy customers. “My personal favorite is chocolate dipped apples. We dip Granny Smith apples in chocolate for a delightful tart and sweet combination. A lot of my team will tell you that their favorite is the double dipped bananas that are first dipped in semisweet chocolate and then in white chocolate,” she says.
What makes an Edible Arrangements creation a really great gift? Here’s Diana’s explanation. “We are a fresh take on an old custom of giving flowers,” she says. “We’re a healthy alternative to just chocolate, and we make everything to order every day, so you are guaranteed the freshest fruits that have been cut and put into amazing designs by our well trained fruit experts. It’s this attention to detail and dedication to quality that makes someone’s day a little sweeter when they receive one of our designs.”
Diana says she feels great satisfaction in making people happy with Edible Arrangements. “We never knew how big this would get once we gained name recognition. It’s such a great feeling when we are asked what we do, and are met with OH MY GOSH, I love you guys or I received one of your arrangements and it was so amazing!”
Most of all Diana says she feels part of the bigger picture through her involvement with her business. “I love making a contribution to our community from creating jobs that people can take pride in the many nonprofits we have helped over the years, and to the smiles on the little kids’ faces when they open the door and see us standing there with a delivery. I take pride in mentoring young people who have been part of our team and remain close to lots of team members who have moved on,” Diana says. “I consider it a privilege to assist people by sharing the wealth of knowledge I have gained not just from this business but the corporate world I came from.”
