Once I stopped, I put on some weight, then more, then even more than before I started. I was gaining weight in places that I never did before. I prided myself on my great metabolism. Not anymore. I can’t lose weight no matter how much I exercise (which was the way I could lose weight in the past). Isagenix destroyed my metabolism and I still have not been able to repair it.

This is the type of sensationalistic, fear-mongering that we need to be careful of. As someone in a leadership role (ie. people trust you for information), you need to understand how people react to that information. When you use language like, “It is toxic to the liver, raises triglycerides…”, it doesn’t matter what follows, people just remember that it is toxic to your liver.
You never hear of anyone "living" a cleansing lifestyle, yet we all know intuitively that we need to eat healthier. That's what makes juicing so attractive - it's considered a quick fix. We've all been there; sick and tired of being sick and tired and know we need to change our situation, so we try to do the right thing and jump into a juice cleanse because every good diet starts with a cleanse - right?

One of the first things that people notice when they embark on Cleanse Days is the weight loss. Studies on intermittent fasting have shown that it is just as an effective approach for weight loss as compared to cutting calories (1). In one study, overweight women who fasted intermittently for six months lost more weight than women who restricted their calories each day (2).


I’m talking about how certain activities and moments would trigger this desire in me to snack even though my body didn’t really need it--from the TV shows I was watching to where I was sitting in my living room. For instance, I knew I wasn’t hungry, but the minute I turned to Bravo to watch Andy Cohen or any of those Real Housewives, I suddenly felt the desire to pick up a bag of chips or order Chinese food.
Ancestral Nutrition Robbie Bianchi Pray I didn’t even address the “natural flavors” in my post, which in hindsight I should have because it’s just another reason these products are not healthy. To each their own, it’s entirely up to you what you put in your body. Personally, I choose to avoid toxins and most likely GMOs, especially because I don’t want to support Monsanto. Also just as an FYI – it’s not legit to retrieve accurate, unbiased information from a website whose intention is to sell the very product you’re researching.
This celebrity-backed juice cleanse (Salma Hayek is a company co-founder) can’t be beat when it comes to convenience. After you can choose either the three- or five-day plan, everything is delivered right to your door, nationwide. But Jackie Newgent, RD, a dietitian and author of the Big Green Cookbook, says that relying exclusively on juice can cause problems with overall nutrition. “Though a natural fruit-based juice cleanse may offer some people a ‘mental’ kick start for following a diet without harm, I don’t recommend the use of cleanses,” she says. “Cleanses have never been necessary to jump-start weight loss or remove ‘toxins,’ and they never will be necessary.” 

My brother is pushing this ISACRAP stuff and I am extremely concerned. I warned him about the mlm- pyramid scam and was attacked by all of his “cult” so called friends. I have tried looking for negative feedback and finally found some using bing rather than google as a search engine. Found website where folks had some major medical issues. Hope this helps anyone trying to research before trying. Bottom line..eat healthy and exercise
A Nutritional Cleanse is the perfect opportunity to allow your body to “start from scratch” while helping you gain some dietary insight into your path towards wellness. When done right, clearing out the body through a guided nutritional program can have some seriously amazing and long-lasting results on your health. So, what better way to rid any poisons or toxins from your body than to go on one of these Nutritional Cleanses? Joy Schonholz, Nutritional Cleansing Coach at Isagenix and active Isagenix product-user, tells us to think of it this way: When your engine oil becomes dirty, your car alerts you that you’re due for an oil change to rid any impurities from the oil. This guarantees that your engine will run smoothly once it “starts from scratch.” Now, think of your body as the engine and the nutritional cleanse as its oil change. Pretty beneficial to us, don’t you think?
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.
**While Isagenix is not verified GMO-free in the US, it is in Australia and New Zealand. They do say they do not use any GMO products. Though considering they do use soy, corn, and canola, which are over 90% genetically modified, I am suspicious. Consider that there isn’t even approval for GM wheat and it was found growing in Oregon, then consider that over 90% of these crops are GM and often cross-contaminated with non-GM crops.

Show us your credentials, Jeff. Where do you practice medicine? Refer me to the peer-reviewed scientific studies that show “millions of people are getting healthy”. Men of science don’t speak in broad, sweeping, unsubstantiated statements. At $300+ a month over years of use, this product will create broke diet-addicts. Sustained results can be achieved more successfully and safely with exercise, whole foods and relative portion size to weight ratio. Do you have a relative selling this product?
The past two years has been tough for me and there’s been a lot of changes in my life. I’m going through a divorce, dealing with chronic pain and lack of medical help and working to build my business. Stress has taken its toll and unfortunately with that the weight slowly creeped up on me. I’m on two types of medication that cause weight gain so I have to be very vigilant with what I eat. I got to the point where I didn’t care anymore and just ate what I wanted when I wanted it.
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.
I’m not looking forward to the next two cleanse days—I know I won’t be having real meals on days 10 and 11. It must’ve taken me 20 minutes to pick what to buy for lunch—had to choose wisely. I savored every bite. I also drank my shake for dinner like someone was taking it away from me. Mentally, I’m a little shaken up, but physically, my body is feeling great and I have a lot of energy.
The Isagenix 30-day plan replaces two meals per day with shakes and has you eat a 400- to 600-calorie meal for your third meal. You also take their supplements, and two days per week in the first two weeks you drink their cleanse product instead of eating regular meals or drinking meal-replacement shakes. The ingredients of Isagenix include whey protein, fiber, enzymes and herbs, and the Natural Accelerator supplement also contains cayenne, green tea, cinnamon and ginseng, all of which the manufacturer claims assist fat burning. According to the manufacturer, these meal-replacement shakes and supplements improve energy, promote digestive regularity, increase endurance, encourage weight loss and help you maintain lean muscle mass.
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)
Ok I am rambling – but I think you may have my point. If I go into my pantry and look at the stuff that I was eating 3 weeks ago (foe food?), and compare what is in that, to what I am eating now…anyone who does not know the slightest bit about nutrition can see I have made vast improvements. I feel spectacular. So much so, that I am beginning to crave all the right foods – fresh organic veggies, whole foods, my body and my ability to read it is coming back to life. My taste is changing. I do not know how or why, but it is and has since being on this program. Maybe since this is only a 30 day program we are talking about here, there will be more people like me, who can benefit and be weaned off of the typical processed American diet, and it can be used as such. Not a “complete, lifelong way of eating”, but a tool to help regular people like me make improvements. I am not sure if these products have been removing all those toxins I was consuming 3 times per day my entire life, and that is why I feel so good and motivated to do and eat better? Who really knows? What I do know is I have not had any adverse effects from the handful of ingredients you have brought to attention, but on the contrary, I feel better than I have in a very long time.
Dani, Thank you for performing the due diligence in researching Isagenix. I was unaware of its existence before tonight when an acquaintance hit me up and invited me to the FB group. I began first by reading the ingredients of the Isagenix shakes, and then worked from there. My shakes typically consist of only a few ingerdients: Almond milk, kale, spinach or other leafy greens, dates, a few berries, sometimes I’ll add add a dash of maca powder, Hemp hearts and occasionally Chia seeds. So I’m naturally on my guard with any food source that contains so many ingredients that are synthetic.
If my students wrote a review like this they would get an F. The ingredients may come from Isagenix but your “facts” are not supported and are conflicting. Despite saying the use genetically modified ingredients you later state that you “doubt” that the products are non-GMO. That alone brings all other statements into question. You should back up your statements of the “toxic ingredients” with references, or are they specifically your opinion? Finally, you have neglected to reference your education/expertise.

Thank you so much for hanging in there. I continuously encourage GMO free, organic and little dairy. I have high energy, feel awesome and happy and have a clear conscious regarding animal cruelty. I encourage people to research well and that even though people may have credentials does that make them experts. Our learning’s from other people are created from opinions and perceptions, it doesn’t mean they are correct or right. Live well xxxx
There’s a big difference between small amount of naturally occurring fructose in whole foods that I recommend. There’s also a big difference between “fear mongering” and educating people who are otherwise spending their hard earned money on overly processed food byproducts that are being peddled ad health. I find lately that using facts and science to evaluate things is labeled as fear mongering. It used to just be called critical thinking.
Wow. I was going to meet with one of the sales reps for this product until I read through this site and many others. So here’s my take: it’s probably not for me. I lead a relatively healthy lifestyle and try to eat organic when I can…but I am also very busy and dont always drive 45 mins to the farmers market or make my own protein shakes with raw eggs.
On the “cleansing days,” use the actual Isagenix cleansing product called Cleanse For Life. This product is available in either powder or liquid form and has a natural, rich berry flavor to keep your taste-buds satisfied. This product is not a diuretic, but instead it feeds and nourishes the body with over 100 different nutrients including ionic minerals, antioxidants, and cleansing herbs. Not only that, but it also boosts mental and physical performance while protecting the cells and vital organs from aging! To follow the cleansing program properly, mix 4 ounces of Cleanse For Life with 4 ounces of purified water four times a day. Additionally, it is important to take Natural Accelerator capsules (which metabolize your body fat and are packed with thermogenic ingredients like cayenne, green tea, ginseng, and cinnamon), Isagenix Snacks!, which help your digestive system, as well as IsaDelight Plus, which assists in mental clarity and helps to ease sugar cravings. Lastly, Joy advises that it’s important to drink lots of water in addition to this, so that you continue to flush the body out of all the toxins as well as possible.
Wow! This is great! I was approached by someone during the week – trying to get me to rep this product for them, because I “have good energy” I knew nothing of it, and assumed it was something far natural and sincere. So I sit down to find myself watching the most ridiculous video ever, of all these weird cult like people, claiming that they no longer work but make MONEY MONEY MONEY.! This is so far removed from what I think a healthy person (body and soul) should be like. It appears just another brainwashing scheme, spend money to find health and happiness. There are many more ways than this stupid company! Sure people do this and lose weight, good for them, but I agree that there are many other HEALTHIER ways to do so. You don’t need to buy packaged, manufactured crap. People need to wake up. Spend time, not money on yourself. Way to go Dani! Loved the read, and will follow your blog now too! All the best to you. 🙂
thorough and informative review- nothing but straight facts.. Thank you! As a Chiropractor (and a CNS) I had an Isagenix rep approach me a few months ago about selling the products to my patients in the practice. I researched the products and chose not to be a part of the Multi-level marketing scheme because of the ingredients (besides it not being very professional) and many of the same reasons stated here. Whole foods is the only sensible way to go and there are plenty of products out there that are made with whole foods (I use standard process in my practice). Isagenix and the ingredients artificially added during production defeat the whole purpose of a cleanse!

Thank you for this article! I have been a very successful network marketer with both Beachbody and Visalus…I did help A LOT of people lose weight and “get healthy…-er” than they were. But through my OWN research and dissecting each ingredient in the products I consume as I became more interested in researching all of the supposed healthy ingredients, I have found that google does a body good! If you copy and paste the ingredients into google and ask “IS ______(insert ingredient)___ non-gmo/organic?” you will get ALL sorts of reliable info. I have YET to find an MLM that produces a truly NON-GMO and Certified Organic product. Now, some claim they do…but their ingredients say otherwise. And let’s be real…every website is going to vouch for their product. What kind of company would they be if they outed themselves? Think about it!

The non-GMO soy lecithin found in IsaLean Shake is ultra-purified so it’s free of any proteins or contaminants. Soy lecithin doesn’t contribute any amount of soy protein (so it is hypoallergenic) and it doesn’t contribute any soy isoflavones (which are phytoestrogens). These are eliminated through purification and should not present a concern to those needing to avoid them.

An Isagenix-funded study published in Nutrition & Metabolism in 2012 found that over an eight-week period, people who used Isagenix meal-replacement shakes as part of an intermittent fasting and calorie-restriction diet lost 2.2 pounds more than those who followed a similar diet using regular food. However, according to a 2012 article published on the Science-Based Medicine website, this study wasn't well-designed, and Isagenix paid to get it published in the journal. The author of the website article, Dr. Harriet Hall, also noted that there were inconsistencies in the numbers listed in the results, potentially making the conclusions unreliable.
As you know, doing anything for a certain amount of time frequently will result in forming a habit. Eating especially correlates with this principle, because you have to do it multiple times a day. So if you eat healthy – then you will continue doing it, without even thinking twice. If you don’t, then things won’t change, until you break the habit.

So, is juicing good for you at all? The real problem with juice cleansing is that it deprives your body of healthy fats and other essential nutrients your body requires to operate. This makes you feel terrible and can also cause you to lose that hard-earned muscle, which in turn slows down your metabolism, making it even harder to lose weight or maintain what you have lost.


Dani, if you would take time to actually read the Isagenix articles you would discover that each article (I am not referring to the marketing material) is fully backed by highly acclaimed and respected scientific, medical and nutritional research and professional publications. Isagenix did not appear from nowhere based on a whim or fancy. It is proven, tested by third party, and has reputable, fully backed by respected doctors and others in all fields of medicine.
If Isagenix products were so unhealthy you wouldn’t have people lowering their cholesterol, lowering diabetes medications, coming off blood pressure, antidepressants etc etc Obviously all in consultation with their doctors, who are amazed at how healthy they are and what great work isagenix did in their body, allowing the body to heal itself, cleansing out the toxins. Speaking of toxins, the isagenix system is designed to do just that. A good video showing this at the blood level by Jim Rhoades is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BesUttqdy2w
I’ve never craved a scrambled egg this much before in my life. This shake is not doing the trick. I feel a little lightheaded and weak. Somebody give me protein, please! And these snacks, they might as well be potato chips. When you eat one, you want to have another, and another, and another. The snag? You can only eat 2 in between meals (and they’re the size of quarters!). When lunch came around, it was like heaven. Putting that first piece of grilled chicken in my mouth was like an explosion of taste like I’ve never had, and that was when I realized what a luxury consuming actual food was. But yeah, I’ve lost 3 pounds.
This is a low-calorie diet that lasts 30 days, makes untruthful claims, uses unproven ingredients, has no research behind it, and is a huge waste of money. The salespeople are clearly not supervised in how they promote the product, and to be honest, I’m not sure how Isagenix gets away with this entire racket – the products, claims, and the sales pitches. And marketing to kids under 18? What are they thinking? I guess they want to hook people for life…do you really want to give this company your money? 
Soybean oil is extremely inflammatory and high in omega-6 fatty acids. It’s also one of the most genetically modified crops and is processed with hexane, a neurotoxin. Agave is extremely high in fructose, not to mention that fructose is also added to these products. Fructose is toxic to the liver. Corn bran is extremely hard on the digestive tract, any bran is. Majority of corn is genetically modified. And might I remind you that these products are not certified GM-free in the US.
Thanks so much for standing your ground. I have just been introduced to Isagenix from a friend as my body weight had plateaued. In the last 12 months I have lost over 20kgs from eating organic and whole foods, no red meat and little dairy. We can still eat foods that our body will love and respond well to. Your blog supports all my thinking towards toxic eating, especially of GMO products.

Improves mood, curbs cravings, increases energy and decreases hunger. Green tea is rich in antioxidants including EGCG, which increases thermogenesis, which helps you burn fat and supports weight-management goals. IsaDelight Plus Dark Chocolate is made up of 70% non-alkalized cocoa powder, produced by a low-temperature process in a state-of-the-art US facility, to preserve potent antioxidants. Essential amino acids and an exclusive blend of B vitamins and minerals promote positive moods by elevating “feel good” chemicals in your brain, which helps to curb hunger and provide an energy “pick me up.”
I’m embarrassed and somewhat ashamed to admit that I was an Isagenix Associate for 2 years. I became aware of Isagenix through a friend (at the time) that I respected in the local fitness industry. I took only the main products (“Pillars of Health”), enrolled others, and for a while made some decent money. Luckily, I met another Certified Nutrition Consultant purely by chance during a layover at an airport and when I brought up Isagenix to her, because she knew a good amount about it from some of her clients that had come to her, she filled me in on many of the same “facts” (and I mean “facts” in a real and positive way) that you have mentioned throughout your blog. Well, of course, after meeting her I was bummed because I had so wanted to believe in Isagenix, and when I got home I spent hours doing research on my own – I had even taken notes at the airport. What the woman that I had met at the airport had told me was backed up by the research I did. Truthfully, there was always a part of me that didn’t feel comfortable with the whole thing, especially the 9 day and 30 day cleanse “systems” Isagenix highly promoted. I, personally, only sold a couple of the cleanse systems and one was to a good friend and he felt like crap during the 9 day cleanse and couldn’t wait until it was over. He did lose 3 pounds but like you said so many times, just because something makes you lose weight doesn’t make it healthy.
This all reminds me of when Scam-way came out. Oops… I mean Amway. My girlfriend (at the time) was selling that garbage and I remember her telling me, “Tim, I was thinking about you today and thought of something that can help you save money.” Proceeded to hand me samples (the old reciprocity sales tactic). Those scammers have everything thought up down to the “script” she read to me. Eventually I read and saw all of the junk about emerald island blah blah blah. Fast forward it’s the same hustle different product different people in same cases.
Lets not forget, that we are talking about life here. Not just mine. Not just yours. Not just nutrition. We are what we ABSORB. Psychologically, emotionally, spiritually, AND nutritionally. And those things are all inherently interrelated. Our spirituality can dictate our emotion. Our emotion can dictate our brain chemistry. Our brain chemistry can dictate our body chemistry which in turn can dictate what nutrition we absorb. And ALL of those can dictate our psychology. And round and round we go…
Dani, Thank you for performing the due diligence in researching Isagenix. I was unaware of its existence before tonight when an acquaintance hit me up and invited me to the FB group. I began first by reading the ingredients of the Isagenix shakes, and then worked from there.

This now raises another question………….. how many of you Isagenix supporters have signed others up to this program? I bet there are a few. Now, my next question is….. how many of you have enough medical knowledge to stand over what you are advising people to take? Remeber, you are now responsible for whatever happens to someone as a result of them taking the product you pushed. If they have certain allergies or ailments, some of these products CAN cause health problems in certain people.

The comment on ‘natural flavors’ is misleading as, to start, there is no MSG in the shakes even though you say technically it can be classed as a natural flavour. Actually it can’t as USDA will not allow MSG on the ‘natural flavors’ list. It does, on the other hand, allow glutamic acid. Glutamic acid is an amino acid that occurs naturally in our bodies. Aside from this, you do not actually know which ‘natural flavors’ are in the product. Before making suggestions of what they might be and misleading people, actual research could involve you asking company, if you were genuinely doing an ‘unbiased’ review on the internet for literally everyone to read.
“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!
Thanks for the article, Dani. I really appreciate the insight. I am always entertained by the constant back and forth. I tried Isagenix because a friend of mine has been using it and having a great deal of success. Since January, I have been trying to really get my health and weight under control. I had a real unhealthy lifestyle (eating like crap and very little exercise) and was bound and determined to get it under control. I started Isagenix in February (after a solid month of clean eating and exercising 6 days a week), and experienced a great deal of success in the first week and a half. I had more energy and my body was feeling great. However, after that first week and a half, I experienced serious hunger and harsh digestion reactions. It was really a struggle to follow the plan and all of the suggestions that my friend gave me. I felt like my body was holding onto everything I ate (or drank) – I was exhausted all of the time, dizzy, and constantly hungry.
I just think the important thing to remember when using these products/systems is understanding that you need to use them in a way that fits your lifestyle and what you want out of their use. I think the two most important aspects of getting fit and maintaining a healthy lifestyle are exercise and eating right in a consistent manner. It’s important to plan out your meals and try to get the most you can out of natural foods and probably only supplement when it is necessary. I used to supplement with a ton of other, more sketchy products than Isagenix and I most definitely feel better after the switch. But I also think it’s really important to note that if your goal is to go all natural, or as natural as possible, that most supplements are going to compromise that goal in some form or another.
This is a review, it’s not bad mouthing, I didn’t make anything up. I highlighted toxic ingredients that are unhealthy. It’s a fact that some of the ingredients are unhealthy. I can’t change that. I also clearly stated that I received a significant amount of requests from readers to review Isagenix, so I did. Am I supposed to keep my mouth shut because people like you disagree with me? THAT would be a lack of integrity.
One of the most popular bottled cleanses today is the BluePrint Cleanse, which offers different juice options depending on how often you use cleanse systems. The standard Renovation Cleanse (recommended for beginners) has six daily juices for a total of about 1,070 calories. If you’re not ready to go all-juice, BluePrint also offers the Juice ’Til Dinner plan. On this diet, you’ll drink fresh juices all day, and have a dinner of a salad or another raw-food meal, along with two snacks. Jantz says that this food-and-juice cleanse is a healthier option because you're not starving yourself completely. But J.J. Virgin, a nutrition expert in California, points out that it still has drawbacks. “With the exception of the cashew milk, all of the juices have just 1 to 2 grams of protein but as much as 10 teaspoons of fruit sugar. With all that sugar and almost no protein or fat, you’ll crash, feeling lethargic and hungry a few hours after you drink the juice.”
I too was encouraged to try that Isagenix product. 1 of my siblings is heavily into the scheme. She suggested it to me, and I tried it for almost 5 days until I started experiencing negative side affects. A week later she asked me if I wanted go with her to an Isagenix event where I’d become an associate., but after I naive agreed she informed me at the last minute that she needed to submit my social security number to the reps in charge so they could make an isagenix account for me, and for their tax purposes too. She had everything planned for the trip. But I felt pressured/trapped about giving out my ss number. I also did research about the product and I was shocked when I found it was a scam. It makes no sense why suddenly the company wants my ss number and insists I buy another of their products just to be a seller. So I politely informed my sibling that I refused to just throw out my personal info when I knew the company wasn’t Real!
“A small amount of fructose, such as the amount found in most vegetables and fruits, is not a bad thing. In fact, there is evidence that a little bit may help your body process glucose properly. However, consuming too much fructose at once seems to overwhelm the body’s capacity to process it. The diets of our ancestors contained only very small amounts of fructose. These days, estimates are that about 10% of the modern diet comes from fructose.

What really amazes me with isogenix has no actual legitimate proof that their products work when the suggest the meal replacement injunction with an exercise and calorie controlled diet WTF no wounder the weight stripes off. If you actually look into credible research databases isogenix is not listed but yet the hoax on google and through the isogenix has produce this “so called reseach” which I suggest is backed by isogenix. One thing I find bizarre they claim that isogenic detoxifies our bodies well WTF are our liver and kidneys for. These quick fixes are a money making scheme which is not even approved by the AGA therefore not creditable what so ever.

I love you for this thread alone! I have had so many friends and family members drink the IsaGenix Kool-Aid (or Ionix Supreme, to be exact), and it makes me cringe every time I hear of someone else falling for it. This company preys on the insecurities of its minions. There is so much mis-information perpetuated throughout their circles that I want to slap them as a collective and to wake them up to reality. Yes, calorie restriction is going to make you lose weight. Yes, some of the Ayurvedic herbs and caffeine in their products may make you feel euphoric, especially when you ingest them all day long. But that ‘s about it. There is nothing magical about this, but for the gold that appears in the pockets of the executives at the top. It’s such a scam. Anyway…you already know that. It’s refreshing to see an educated voice lifting the veil off the crap they are selling. I’m so sick of hearing about how awesome it is. If everyone on it would just eat healthy, organic, whole foods and exercise regularly they might just be surprised at how good they feel for a fraction of the price.
With your qualifications you should understand how things work in synergy in the correct balance. You are still picking out what you deem negatives and if you had reviewed the Isagenix products in full you would be able to cite the herbal/Ayurvedic ingredients for yourself. Evidently you haven’t so I’ll give you a few to get you going with some further research.
Lastly, there is the detoxification that can take place on Cleanse Days. Often misunderstood, improved detoxification (or the increased efficiency of phase 1, 2, and 3 enzyme systems) while on Cleanse Days may be one of the most fascinating parts of the scientific story behind Cleanse Days. Nutritional support in the form of antioxidant vitamins and botanicals is essential in the detoxification process because some toxins are produced as the result of free radical activity. Additionally, nutritional support is needed to counteract the oxidative damage caused by toxins.

“A small amount of fructose, such as the amount found in most vegetables and fruits, is not a bad thing. In fact, there is evidence that a little bit may help your body process glucose properly. However, consuming too much fructose at once seems to overwhelm the body’s capacity to process it. The diets of our ancestors contained only very small amounts of fructose. These days, estimates are that about 10% of the modern diet comes from fructose.

I would like to point out here in this blog and comment thread: How many people commenting here are actual and active scientists, clinical practitioners, updated active nutritionists? Did you know just because it is natural does not mean it is good for you (sexually transmitted diseases are natural), and on the other side just because it is “manufactured” does not mean it is bad for you. I am in no way comprehensive in these quick comments. Please do not ask me what I recommend in these comments. I am biased because I am picky and I am science based as a practicing clinical nutrition and medicine expert. And those are the sources where you want to get information from on these subjects. There are a great deal of comments on this blog, most distracting and many dangerous in their information.
An Isagenix-funded study published in Nutrition & Metabolism in 2012 found that over an eight-week period, people who used Isagenix meal-replacement shakes as part of an intermittent fasting and calorie-restriction diet lost 2.2 pounds more than those who followed a similar diet using regular food. However, according to a 2012 article published on the Science-Based Medicine website, this study wasn't well-designed, and Isagenix paid to get it published in the journal. The author of the website article, Dr. Harriet Hall, also noted that there were inconsistencies in the numbers listed in the results, potentially making the conclusions unreliable.

I just started the 30 day plan today and I have such a bad headache and mentioned it to a co-worker. She said that these types of plans are drastic and it can take a couple of days for your body to get used to it. I decided to read about it ( I know a little late for that) and everything seems so positve but when I saw the ingredients under the label (you need to peel it back to read it) I got a little nervous. I like the keep it real approach, buy whole and local food when I can, but I struggle with LIFE. A sit-at-the-computer all day job, low energy, high sugar intake and drinks on the weekends. I wanted something that would give me a boost and my girlfriend was selling this and I thought I would try it. I read all this back and forth and I realize that most of these people “FOR” Isa are worried about people not buying or stopping Isa and you are wanting people to make informed decisions, so coming from 2 totally different places. If I was selling it and making money I wouldn’t want people saying it not good for you but I am really glad that you choose not to worry about being popular with all these folks and wrote this article, because I am going to buy a salad and return my Isa products for a refund. I think I will buy your book too while I’m here!
The only thing achieved here is polarization of your audience. The people who hate the product and the company, for whatever reason, will seek articles like this to validate them. The people that love it and are getting results are going to tell you you’re wrong and make an example of you in their online communities. People who are looking into this product because they are considering using it probably won’t see you as an unbiased or credible source of information. But good job on creating traffic to your page via Google.
Hey not everyone has the ability to exercise (possibly due to any injury). So for some of us Isagenix has been a life-saver. It’s not just about the weight loss. I have never felt better in my life! And by the way, I don’t sell it, I use it for my own personal consumption. And it is gluten free!! I’m sorry everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but that’s just what it is “opinion.” Not everything is going to work for everyone, but that’s what makes the world go round! People need to make their own decisions based on their own personal needs. For me, Isagenix in conjunction with super clean eating has been the answer. 

You’ve obviously never tried it. You can spout off all the random information you want, but Isagenix makes me FEEL better than anything I’ve ever eaten. Something unhealthy could never make me feel this good. I’ve eaten whole, unprocessed, healthy foods my whole life, but my health completely turned around when I started adding Isagenix into the mix. Haters gonna hate, but you will NEVER, EVER convince me that Isagenix is unhealthy. It is the best thing I have ever done for myself. Cheers!
Wow. I was going to meet with one of the sales reps for this product until I read through this site and many others. So here’s my take: it’s probably not for me. I lead a relatively healthy lifestyle and try to eat organic when I can…but I am also very busy and dont always drive 45 mins to the farmers market or make my own protein shakes with raw eggs.
