People who are involved in the nutrition field are far more knowledgeable, they have vast amounts of education on this subject, and a huge advantage over let’s say a car mechanic when it comes to figuring out the good from the bad at the local grocery store (which is where the majority of Americans shop for their food) Label reading is extremely hard, especially if you do not know all the bad things to look for as a trained professional would know like the back of their hand, such as yourself. A great portion of Americans know the simple pit falls in eating, like, do not eat at McDonalds, don’t eat donuts for breakfast lunch and dinner. I am not saying it is the total education of the individual, but nutritional education which not that many people have, is key here.
But the products are expensive. I suspect too expensive, given that I can get protein shakes and similar “metabolism boosting” supplements at my local SuperSupplements store. My coach tells me that the difference in price is due to the “trace minerals” and the fact that the whey protein comes from fully organically raised cows in New Zealand. That sounds a bit fanciful to me, but I can’t ignore the fact that the system appears to work for me.
Hi! Very interesting blog post and comments section. I was given Isagenix by my sister and am currently on Day 4 of a 2 week “cleanse”. Prior to her giving it to me, I told her that I was wary of the product because I could not find any research supporting Isagenix that was not influenced or purchased by the company itself. That’s odd, especially for such a large company with so many supporters and testimonies. Despite my hesitation, I agreed to try it. I am obese and have been having trouble with sleep apnea, shortness of breath, and heart palpitations. My typical weekly diet included regular doses of fast food, pizza and at least 2 liters of fit soda per day. Frankly, I believe that Isagenix DOES contain things that are unhealthy. However, it is likely that they are less unhealthy than the disgusting things I was already consuming everyday. My plan is not to use Isagenix for life. I can see why people do, though. It’s a matter of convenience (and for some, a matter of pride). I am using this period to move from being completely unhealthy to embracing real foods again. There’s something about two shakes a day and a 48 hour no-solid-food period that just makes you appreciate something simple and natural like a sweet potato. (Please please please don’t tell me sweet potatoes are bad for me. I just fell in love with them.) I fully intend to return to a life of real food, which I believe does have everything we need to be healthy and thrive. I just needed a way to “reset”, to start the change I know my life needs.
First off people should know better by now to run as fast as they possibly can when they see any multi level marketing companies. They feed off the weak minded and its a somehow legal ponzi scheme based model. Second, Just because these products might help someone lose weight here and there doesn’t mean they are healthy. The nutrition industry is not regulated and we all know how corrupt the FDA is…. So to all these people who take these products, Body by Vi, Isagenix, etc just admit it that you bought into some sleezy sales pitch and sure the product might have worked a little bit but in reality you have no idea what you’re putting into your body.
I’ve been feeling very tired and have eaten very little. The shakes taste like twelve kinds of ass (I have to add decaf coffee just to make them palatable and I’m yet to be able to finish a whole one) and the snacks they give you with the presidential pack are, unfortunately, laden with chocolate. The bars have twice as much carbs/calories as the closest fruit containing equivalent I could find on the market, and the ‘cleanse day tea’ I have tastes like powerade. Exactly like powerade. I don’t think there’s a difference.

If a cross-fitter needs meal advice based on his/her specific needs, then that cross-fitter has some responsibility to bear as well. Isagenix has never claimed to offer personalized meal planning though some associates are fully qualified to do so. Would it be fair for me to expect my personal trainer to live with me to ensure that my very specific issues are being addressed while on my own as well… no, at some point, I have to take what I learn from him/her police myself. Isagenix is excellent at providing advice on healthy meal choices.
Personally, I would say to anyone that is thinking of spending $300, $400, or $500 etc… on an Isagenix “system” – take that money and hire the services of a good and reputable Certified Nutrition Consultant and learn how to eat properly and the many other healthy components a good CNC can help you with. This knowledge will be for the rest of your life and you won’t have to rely or be on “Autoship” from an MLM company when it comes to the food you eat!
But when I consciously choose to travel to far away countries, be accepted by the indigenous people and accept them in return, who hold ancient knowledge and wisdom for the future betterment and evolution of our species, do service to a community, to be part of a combined and soul felt movement for love, understanding, acceptance and peace, then I am SOMEBODY.
One of the top sales person for Isagenix had his wife on it for 5 years and she did not lose any weight. She had a stomach operation to help her lose weight. Now at all of the Isegenixs conferences and shows they have people taking pictures and posting them on facebook on how they both lost weight from Isagenix. This is a false impression that the sales people under them get.
Dani, you like in your references above to Sunflower oil which is high in omega 6 fatty acids. Isagenix uses “high-oleic sunflower oil” along with cold processed olive oil and alpha-linolenic acid from flax seeds as the main sources of fats. Consumptions of which has been linked with better control of blood pressure and heart health. More details at:
Processed foods of any kind are always bad for us! Processing “kills” the food! If the reason you choose to purchase Isogenics or other toxic processed foods (including organic) is because you dont have time to make your food. So buy a blender and throw organic baby spinach, carrots, kale, apples and frozen bananas together and let is blend. Drink that and see how great you feel. There are plenty of great recipes on the interent for the times you need fast “real” food. I have been eating organic “real” food for a very long time. My and family and I NEVER go to the doctor for any reason. I dont need to be some sciencetist or nutritionist to prove my point. My health speaks for itself! I also look 10-15 years younger than people my own age. Fresh organic fruits and vegetables are the only foods we should be eating. The rest should be taken off the market and those companies / restaurants producing toxic “processed” food should be forced to close their doors forever!
I couldn’t find a critique of Isagenix on the Web, but that’s not surprising. No serious medical scientist would take it seriously enough to bother about it. And it’s basically all been done before; it’s just a slightly new wrinkle on an old scam. You will find some information on related products at: http://www.quackwatch.org/01QuackeryRelatedTopics/detox.html
Once again, when you are in a position where people look to you for advice, you have to present ALL the information. I feel that you have an opinion about Shake-based supplements in general and have made an assumption that this one is no different. In your charge to prove your assumption right, the perception is that you select to share only the information that supports your position and ignore or suppress that which contradicts it.
I tried Isagenix because all over my facebook, people were posting about all this success that they were having etc. I was very reluctant to try it, but I finally gave in, because in March 2013, I had rotator cuff surgery and was not cleared for any exercise until almost a year later. I gained a lot of weight during that time and I was miserable. It was affecting my relationship with my boyfriend and I was desperate.
I really appreciate your information. I too had a hard time finding unbiased real information about Isagenix that did not come from their own website. I was always a skeptic about it, but got convinced after my friend lost a lot of weight and was really selling me on it. I argued with her about the ingredients, but still got convinced and ended up spending a small fortune I don’t have. It was too hard for me to stick to after a short time anyway….I am used to trying to eat healthy but by actually EATING real food and doing the shakes and all that just felt too restrictive to me.
*sigh* And just how am I supposed to afford all this ridiculously priced whole, unprocessed healthy food? I saw in the comments somebody saying their friends were too lazy to cook. It’s completely backwards when the processed crap is cheaper than what everybody says we’re “supposed to eat” to be healthy. It’s depressing. I don’t go in for the supplements either ’cause they’re also far too expensive to think about. So I guess my only option is to be fat and happy. Well. Fat, anyway.
As a doctor practitioner who has invested long hours of study into nutrition and lifestyle, as well as current therapies, to help my chronically ill or compromised patients, I have watched the effects of Isagenics on many patients and close friends. In many, I see weight loss and an increase in confidence that they have control over their body, but in the majority of those cases it is just an acceptable form of Bulimia (which also gives the sufferer a sense of control). For many, the ‘cleanse’ is a socially acceptable form of purging, for others it is a way of stopping twice at the next stop sign, because you just ran through the first. What hurts me is to watch many of these ‘devotees’ trim fat, but also dramatically increase wrinkles, along with increasing body and emotional reactivity. It is very difficult to help some of them get their lives back on track, just as it was difficult, years ago, to help those who got deeply into cults. For a many, it starts as a healthier path than they were on, but instead of encouraging them to continue to the next healthier level, the culties try to keep them from leaving the fold. Certainly, there are many ingredients that are natural, superfood, or have some recent hype about a unique property, but they are not applied in an individualized manner, but more as a marketing ploy, and to help the ‘converts’ feel that their company is up on the latest so that they don’t get tempted to stray over to other products. We are regularly getting patients ‘off of’ supplements that are known to have beneficial properties, but are not currently appropriate for them. Lastly, I am concerned about the interdependence that the company fosters for the sake of profit, in the name of helping each other. How easily can an Isagenics member leave the fold to pursue the next higher level of physical, emotional, and spiritual health? Does the company encourage you to use their products to help you get out of the fast food rut, but then to graduate on to higher health with real food, no-strings-attached relationships, and selfless service? What is the company’s real mission? It is the image of that mission that you will find imprinted into the product you consume. I can feel the difference in our patients. Naturally grown, harvested, and consumed real food carries a different signature than corporate products.
So far, the meta-analyses and systematic reviews on randomized, placebo-controlled feeding trials comparing fructose to other carbohydrates have not revealed to have any quantitatively meaningful metabolic effects. That is, fructose has demonstrated no significant effect on body weight, blood pressure, or uric acid in calorie-controlled trials. On the other hand, fructose demonstrated improvement of glycemic control at levels comparable to that obtained in fruit.
I always keep an open mind when I am doing my research. So when I was approached about isagenix I started my reading and actually found ingredients online on some of their products. It was not hard to see that their products are not good for you. ALSO…some of their labels say it’s not for pregnant women or there are some warnings on their labels. What does that tell you? If it was apples, spinach, walnuts and coconut oil…it wouldn’t have a warning label. (just an example)
I stumbled across this article because a friend gave me samples of Isagenix to try. I’m ever glad I read your article Dani! After approaching my friend with my new findings, she said to me “so what!” and that the health part is only the “side benefit” and that I can make a lot of money selling this to my family and promise that there’s no harm in her product!
The udder produces milk based on the “demand”. If the udder is “stripped” or milked out at least once or twice a day, the udder will continue to produce milk to the udder’s capacity. It is the reduction of demand that naturally occurs as the calf grows and begins nibbling on other things, establishing a cud, developing their rumen, reducing their intake of mom’s milk and increasing their graze/grass/hay (long & short fiber) that signals the udder to cut back on it’s production. A calf is usually weaned, at the very latest, by 5 – 6 months old.
Saying that all vegetable oils are “inflammatory” is nonsense. It’s true that omega three fatty acids alter the pathway of eicosanoid production towards less inflammatory forms, and they can be very useful for people in states of chronic inflammation (RA, obesity). But n-6 fatty acids are also an important part of human nutrition. Inflammation is a normal and healthy response to injury and disease, you’re using the word as if it’s an unnatural, evil phenomenon.
The second link you provide by David Despain is the science and communications spokesperson for Isagenix, what irony. Now he would be a good person to contact to raise your concerns:): This link doesn’t support your argument at all. quoting the first paragraph “It was the most recent of several review papers to conclude that fructose is probably not inherently fattening in humans, but that it can be fattening if it’s consumed to excess, due to the added calories”
I was in poor health and using the Isagenix products helped me lose weight, begin exercising, and make healthier food choices. I continue to use Isagenix products as part of a healthy lifestyle. Unlike Dr. Hall, I am not an MD, but with that being said, many of her criticisms of the Isagenix products are not really accessible to the average person. So, Dr. Hall, I guess since you are writing so much about Isagenix, maybe refer us readers to other health professionals, perhaps in the field of nutrition that can speak with more credibility, to what you are saying.
Oh Boy, I am reading all this information about how ISAGENIX product is bad for you because of some ingredients and is wondering why is isagenix helping me. I am a cancel survivor and had developed allergies, joint pain, was tired and wipeout out. I am not an obese person and always eat healthy but yet have these problems. I used natural product to help my allergies and joint pain and it never work. Since I am using Isagenix, my allgeriies and joint pain are ALL GONE!!!. I am actually enjoying being outside again. I have so much energy and I feel my life is back. Fact is ISAGENIX WORKS FOR ME.
You can’t just write “Fact:” and it be true, where are your resources and your qualifications?? This is the kind of uneducated response that makes false information continue to be spread. There is obviously no reason to argue with you as you are clearly one of those people who are always right even when smacked in the face with some contradicting evidence. I wonder if back in the day you would have been on the ‘world is flat’ commonsense bandwagon.
When you challenge a way people think and what they have been led to believe their entire life, it scares them to think they’ve been lied to (medical field, food manufacturers–I mean, really? If the food has been manufactured and made in a factory, how CAN that be REAL food?, people and corporations and chemical companies “out to feed the world and raise more food”–how is that working out for us, when we have people literally starving all over the world?). The whole concept of everything people have been told, taught, and have done their entire life isn’t necessarily the right or correct thing to be doing.
So, technically speaking, if a cow was continually milked out every day, (as long as the extra, heavy nutritional requirements are met) she would, theoretically, continue to produce as long as she is milked. Now, this does not speak to the production amount (volume) or the quality or (in my opinion the worst part) the physical drain and hardship on the cow.
When fructose is consumed in a normal range as our hunter-gatherer ancestors did when they ate fruits and vegetables all year round – and as part of a reduced-calorie diet for building muscle and losing weight – it and its cousin sweeteners such as sucrose, glucose, honey, agave nectar, fruit juice concentrates, and sugar alcohols really aren’t so freaky after all.
A vegetarian/vegan/raw diet is one of the most nutrient deficient diets on earth, not “the healthiest.” It’s not surprising that your blood work improved after introducing Isagenix. Going from an extremely nutrient deficient diet to Isagenix does not mean Isagenix is healthy, it means that it is a step above your previous diet. Is it ideal though? No.
Why it Works: Studies show apples have an appetite-suppressing effect. The pectin fiber in apples contribute to delayed gastric emptying. Essentially, this prolongs the time the food remains in the stomach, thus maintaining the feeling of being full and satiated. As for cinnamon, we know for a fact the spice is a proven blood-sugar reducer. New studies also show that cinnamaldehyde, a compound in cinnamon, may induce fat-cell autonomous thermogenesis.
I have studied for years to become a Nutritionist & yet people disbelieve my (science supported) facts & listen to those selling these products (who often have no nutritional or medical qualifications). I have had many clients come to me after having issues with these products due to the “experts’ who have sold them not even checking past medical history (eg. giving them to someone who is lactose intolerant or allergic to soy). There is no due diligence in these salespeople, they are only worried about making a quick buck.
Come on people, we all know that we, as people, are totally individual. A doctor is not an expert in Nutrition, however a combination of a Nutritionist/Health coach such as Dani, in conjunction with a Doctor, is the best solution for an individual. You should already know that apart from a balanced nutritional diet and regular exercise, there is no miracle product, and I have an issue with people who assume weight loss is an indication of “health”.
Wow, I came on here to research the product as a friend was doing a hard sell on me. She has lost about 10 kg. ( good on her I say ) But from what I have learnt from Isagenix supporters is you’re all a bunch of Nutters ! If you have any faith in your product then you should not be threatened by a review. But listening to you all, then listening to Dani’s replies, I would have have to trust her opinion in a heart beat. It also seems most of you are believing what you have been told by the company and have not done any independent reasearch yourself. ( And by independent I mean not from the lsagenix website ). So before I get sucked into this cult like diet culture, I am saying NO ! And BTW you are not doing yourself or the company any favours by defending it in this “obsessed like nature”. I’m of to make a banana smoothie ! Thanks Dani if anything you helped me stear clear of this product as the peolpe are ” A Special kind of Special”
“I have been a vegetarian/vegan/organic eater all my life! Before I started on Isagenix I was eating a high raw, all organic, nutritionally balanced diet, with lots of whole food, juicing, etc. I started on the shakes during my first pregnancy because although I was eating the “healthiest diet” on the planet of real whole foods, my blood work showed differently.”
The Code of Federal Regulations defines a natural flavor as “the essential oil, oleoresin, essence or extractive, protein hydrolysate, distillate, or any product of roasting, heating or enzymolysis, which contains the flavoring constituents derived from a spice, fruit or fruit juice, vegetable or vegetable juice, edible yeast, herb, bark, bud, root, leaf or similar plant material, meat, seafood, poultry, eggs, dairy products, or fermentation products thereof, whose significant function in food is flavoring rather than nutritional (1).” Artificial flavors are defined as those that do not meet these particular standards.
I’ve been eating a whole food plant based diet for 3 months – no pre-packaged stuff, no Gluten, no refined sugar, no dairy ( although I do allow myself the odd bit of seafood, as it sits very well with my stomach ) and I’ve never felt better. I’d eat dirt before I ever started eating some “meal-replacement” shake. Meals shouldn’t need to be replaced if you’re preparing them correctly.
This is my concern. The majority of people fall for the hype (I know I did), with the promise of a life changing experience, both physically and financially. I did not try and get any of our friends on to this before I had completed the 30 days. Now that I have finished, morally I will not be advocating Isagenix. I could not push this onto someone, knowing that the results are unpredictable.
There is something to be said about understand each individual’s needs in combination with the environment. True, the soil is depleted, pesticides, and pollutants have effected and affected the growth of whole foods to a point where it just isn’t realistic to get what we needs anymore. In cases like myself, people are starting to become allergic to things that they once were not. In my case onions, radishes, and green peppers for goodness sake. I can not eat them raw. I tried organic grown in the best of conditions and still I have to have them cooked.
Gladys, you clearly misunderstood why I was asking people to explain to me how soybean oil, isolated fructose, synthetic vitamins, gluten, etc are healthy. My point is that they are not healthy, so this cannot be explained. My point is that Isagenix uses these toxic ingredients (most likely because they’re extremely cheap). I know why these products are unhealthy, but clearly Isagenix users have no knowledge of actual nutrition.
Shame on them for “bashing” you. I hope you don’t feel that I’m one of them. I want you to know that I fully respect your efforts and that you truly believe in what you do. However, I also have a real soft spot for people who try their best but don’t have the knowledge to make an informed decision. I personally know people who have been taken advantage of and feel a personal responsibility to help.
My take on the idea of whole foods and avoiding excess fructose is actually right in line with yours. I do try to focus on whole foods for most of the meals I eat and I do not drink calories (soda) and try to minimize the sugar in my diet. Knowing that 50% of sucrose is fructose, I try to focus on the whole sugars. With Isagenix, my sugar intake overall has dropped, which is a good thing. It is a plan to aid me in achieving my goals. Could I achieve my goals with whole foods? I believe anyone could, but we have to be wise and strong. Sometimes we need a plan to help us, and that is was this is for me. I am intrigued by the energy increase I have felt, the weight loss I am starting to experience and the improved focus I have throughout my day. I don’t believe it is for everyone, but I do believe it is for some. My wife, for example, is hypoglycemic and has a dairy allergy. She struggles BIGTIME, and is trying Isagenix as an attempt to see if she can find some balance. Time will tell. Her best success has been on a ketogenic plan, so we’ll see how this goes.
“What is Nutritional Cleansing?” That’s a question we’ve been asking here at Spafinder Wellness 365 and chances are it’s a question you may have asked recently as well! Nutritional Cleansing has been making a new mark on the latest health trends, and there’s a reason why! Isagenix International, a company which has been specializing in Nutritional Cleansing products since 2002 and creates systems for maintainable health habits, is largely responsible for the increasing popularity in this health trend. We found out the meaning behind its praise by digging deep into the world of cleansing and getting the latest scoop on what it is and how to do it right from the experts themselves!
Corn is high in phytic acid and enzyme inhibitors. It is extremely irritating to the gut lining. The phytic acid in corn also binds to minerals like iron, magnsium, zinc, etc. and prevents them from being absorbed. This is true of all grains. This is why traditional cultures soaked and sprouted their grains, to reduce the phytic acid content. The bran is the worst part.
Hello. I use the Isagenix protein occasionally mostly because I am on an autoship and it keep arriving at my door. I will have to take a closer look at the ingredients. I am not an Isagenix rep, but have only used this product. Actually my favorite type of protein powder is Primal Fuel but it is very costly to ship to Canada. I would love to find a clean-sourced, grass fed whey powder that tastes great and leaves out the other nasty stuff. Suggestions?
Hello Dani! WOW! Truth is.. The BodyDoesn’t Lie! So you are right on the money when you mention listening to your “intuition”. Oh my holy goodness.. I have been taking the Isogenix Shakes etc for almost two weeks..because a ‘well meaning’ someone signed me up under her to sell, sell, sell and had a UPS package of products shipped to my home at no charge to me. I didn’t have a good feeling about them and immediately voiced my concerns about the high fruitcose and sodium content to a top representitive of the company who repeated a continuous looping of ‘these products are formulated by a Master Formulater and everything balances out.. He knows what he’s doing!” I just came across your site late this afternoon and read clear through to the end. So gratefull for your staying in the arena here with all these cultish holy rollers.. I drove to the small market in this small mostly one religion town and bought a Kombucha and took a swig in your honour…because I have felt so fuzzy headed, unclear and with an ache in my back in the area where my right kidney is since taking this “stuff “! There is so much more I could say.. Instead ~ I’ll just say how much I appreciate you and look forward to reading more of your other articles! It’s probably a ‘runaway train’ with the long winders. .. But keep your post up..for those who know the truth doesn’t lie!!!! My best to you!
This is the kind of information I was looking for. I found it very strange how few negative reviews were available for Isagenix system. I am from the “school” of where if something seems too good to be true, it is because it IS too good to be true. 400 dollars for a 30 day system sounds to me like a rotten pyramid scheme with a frantic dietary fad.
People have been hybridizing, which is COMPLETELY different from genetically modifying. Genetically modifying involves altering plant genes using the genes of animals, viruses, bacteria, etc. This can only be done in a lab and has proven to be carcinogenic. Do you think that 10,000 years ago people had labs in which they figured out how to genetically combine fish genes and tomatoes?
I’m not sure what you mean by “strict paleo” and I’m not sure how long (or short) you were eating this way. Paleo is about eating unprocessed, organic, local and sustainable food that is tailored to your own personal needs. So in short, I honestly do not believe your testimonial, or that you were properly tailoring a healthy diet to your individual needs.
Are there not more pressing issues in the world today that deserve our upmost attention??? Our organic thought and acceptance that there is only, has only ever been, and will only ever be ONE authority on these things? The authority that ONE has in regards to the ONLY relationship that ONE ever has? The ONE relationship with the entirety of the earth and every form of life upon it?
Scott…..so are you trying to say that our livers are not cleaning out the toxins in our bodies anymore?? Seriuosly? Instead of just telling us your analogies, why don’t you give us scientific proof that the liver doesn’t clean out our toxins like it did 100 years ago!! That is the most crazy thing I’ve heard in a long time. Our livers work great, especially eating healthy foods. Not eating anything and then drinking some magic shake doesn’t make your liver work better! Comparing our bodies to taking the trash only to the garage is laughable. And I’m sure you are laughing all the way to the bank!!! That is if you have made it that far up the pyramid!! If not just keep spilling the nonsense to gullible people and you MIGHT just make it!!
I know you wrote this article a year ago but my brother-in-law recently asked me to research Isagenix for him. Without even researching it I knew what I would find would be an awful product, but he does not eat a “clean” diet so I know I need proof for him. Anyway, I found your article very informative. What I found extremely sad is the comments. I don’t care if you have a degree in accounting, nutrition, or no degree at all, research is research! Any person with a brain and sometime to look up ingredients could find this information. I am short on the “time” so I appreciate your help. Most people want to review a product so they go to that products website and read all the awesome reviews about it and what it can do for you!!! That is NOT how you research products. These uneducated people commenting on your blog are part of the herd. Good for you on standing up and doing your homework!!
My cousins started selling isagenix and slowly talked to us about it in the beginning. They were very well trusted members of our family so we listened to them when they told us the benefits of isagenix. I was 4 months postpartum from having my second kid and my husband is a coach and trainer. They told me the the shake I’d be drinking would be nutritional for me and the shake my husband was drinking would be drinking would help with weight loss, even though it was the same shake. So I start drinking it and the second day in my baby (who I was breastfeeding) started getting diarrhea. My cousin who sold this to me and has always answered and helped me with mom advice told me before I started that this was totally ok to drink while breastfeeding and lots of moms do it. Back to the diarrhea with my 4 month old, she tells me that my strictly breastfed baby has diarrhea because she’s probably never had that much nutrition. I couldn’t believe it! I think I tried the shake 2 more times and realized my cousin is full of BS but sadly by that time it had already taken a toll on my baby. She started breaking out with a rash on her face and got diagnosed with eczema. I never tried isagenix again and couldn’t eat any dairy for a year after that, while nursing my baby because it made her eczema flare up. She is 2 and still sensitive to dairy. I know I sound like a idiot for even trying it but that’s why I am angry with this scheme!! They were so trusted and totally took advantage and still take advantage of our other family and friends. It’s sick to see.
The recommendations, results and safety of cleanses vary. Extreme cleanses, such as the Master Cleanse, which has you subsist on lemon juice, maple syrup and cayenne pepper for 10 days, can leave you weak and nauseous. You may lose weight in the short term, but are likely to gain back all the weight you lost shortly after returning to your old habits.
Cleanse for Life contains a blend of herbs that are very gentle on your body and has over 100 nutrients in it! It works with your body to flush out all the toxins. If you are wondering if it has a laxative type effect, it does not. I was going pee a lot though! I think because I was drinking so much liquid and ridding myself of the toxins that built up.
