But other experts don’t see cleanses as necessary. “In otherwise healthy people, there is no evidence that cleansing or detoxification has any benefit,” says Thomas Schnell, MD, a gastroenterologist at Loyola University Medical Center in Illinois. “The human system is designed to clean itself out without interference. Fiber, which is absent in an all-juice diet, is what keeps the bowels moving." Most American diets are low in fiber and eating less meat and more fiber through fruits and vegetables is a healthy diet step, Schnell says. However, the idea that your colon needs cleansing is just not true for most people.
For those of us who are open minded and have been through the ropes on the MLM world, and are willing to do the research it takes to understand how health is achieved, you don’t need to state your credentials. Irregardless of them, you are stating your opinion based on the ingredients listed on the label. So don’t you worry about telling me who you are.
“Yen CH, Tseng YH, Kuo YW, Lee MC, Chen HL. Long-term supplementation of isomalto-oligosaccharides improved colonic microflora profile, bowel function, and blood cholesterol levels in constipated elderly people–a placebo-controlled, diet-controlled trial. Nutrition 2011;27:445-50.” If you can find a study that says this ingredient is dangerous happy to have a look. It’s been in use for decades in Japan and throughout Asia. There are no studies indicating side effects of moderate amounts only many published positive studies. It can be made from many different starch sources like wheat, barley, corn, pulses (peas, beans, lentils) oats, tapioca, rice and potato. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isomaltooligosaccharide
I do encourage you to keep at what your doing tho. Despite im one of those rare exceptions where things have to be completely clean doesnt mean you shouldnt be at least attempting to educate people of how bad the toxicity and how bad food in general has become this generation. However I will say isagenix is not as bad as you think it is. Not by a long shot.
I’m not sure if your brain isn’t properly functioning due to taking Isagenix for almost five years, but the ingredient lists were pulled directly from the Isagenix website and I really don’t appreciate being called a liar. Anyone who has the basic ability to read can see the list of sources I used to provide the ingredient lists. So to say that the ingredient lists are fake (when I clearly provided links for them that go to the Isagenix website) is basically an admission that you know the ingredients are garbage.
Still asking the Hangover Gods for forgiveness? Ask a loved one to please prepare you a side of steamed asparagus with a protein-rich lunch. According to a study in the Journal of Food Science, the amino acids and minerals found in asparagus may alleviate hangover symptoms and protect liver cells against toxins. The veggie spears are also a natural diuretic, which will help flush the excess toxins from your system. Avoiding starchy carbs will help to further relieve your body of bloat, while protein—rich in vitamin B6 and amino acids—will help to alleviate groggy hangover symptoms.
” Hi Hanh, Yes, I am with Isagenix. I understand how you feel that way about shakes also. I was glad I took the time to speak with the formulator. He’s an amazing person and he really understands how to put whole food nutrition into a shake. He explained to me how our body has to actually liquefy the food we eat and break it down into it’s most basic components. He decided to put together a shake that already had all the nutrients our body needs, broken down so our body does not have to do the arduous task of digestion. It tastes really good and I think that if you looked into it very closely you would find that like me, you would be very pleased. If you know anyone who would be interested in something like this and you referred them to me, I would truly be grateful. http://www.isagenixhealth.net
In no way am I challenging any of the research you have done or your claims about the ingredients, etc. Your science is solid. What I am challenging is the “for whom” aspect of the article that was not considered. Is Isagenix much healthier, and a better food choice for 99% of the people who consume it? Yes, because most of them are overweight and undereducated about food. Is Isagenix better than a balanced, nutrient rich meal composed of whole foods that are free of any processed ingredients, chemicals, preservatives, additives, isolates, etc. Yes.
I too am a health coach and would NEVER use my credentials to further an MLM business. People trust us and come to us when they have no other place to turn. To drain their pocketbooks and push them to a lifestyle that does not give them any recourse but to stay on an unhealthy program or risk gaining all the weight back is unethical and cruel. You are no better than Jenny Craig or Nutri System… geared toward customers for life. Call yourself what you are… an Isagenix Rep, but please don’t confuse that with a HEALTH coach.
