Dave in reply to your comment “those that Fail aren’t doing the programme properly” let me assure you I am INDEED doing it correctly! I am nearly at the end of my 30 day cleanse and have only lost 3.5kgs and 15cms I have followed it to a T and all I can say is good for you if you and your wife find this product great. I have also found that those that are “Big” to start with on this programme generally loose a lot quite quickly and it cant be a healthy way to loose. Exercise and wholesome food can generally shift the weight if one sticks to that. I just wanted a helping hand and can say that it wasn’t an enjoyable one! And……Tracy, you are definitely right about the sugar! Do people not know that Sugar is reported as being a Killer? Does not take a rocket scientist to see that!
To be sure of bioavailability and potency, Isagenix provides ingredients either present in natural form or derived from natural food sources. We do not use any artificial or synthetic ingredients. In addition, Isagenix provides vitamins that are consistently tested for stability, purity, safety and efficacy. Each vitamin is evaluated using United States Pharmacopoeia standards or higher. They are sourced only from highly reputable suppliers with an excellent track record of meeting and exceeding cGMP guidelines.
You misunderstood my point. I’m not saying tricalcium phosphate is inherently bad. It’s bad when it’s synthesized as it is here. Are people going to overdose on it? No, likely not. But the fact that it’s an ingredient in a product that is touted as all-natural, the best available and healthiest shake is something that needs to be identified. I was trying to highlight the fact that there are synthetic ingredients present.
You have an interesting perspective on my previous post about what the scientific community is saying about Isagenix. I can see how you might arrive at the opinion that all the experts are involved with Isagenix and therefore must be lying simply in order to promote the company and its products, thus putting their credentials and reputations in jeopardy if they are wrong.

Also, I was extremely frustrated after I initially signed up. The person who had “sold” me on it immediately sent me links on how to branch out and get people to ask me about it. It was suggested that I post my success (there was not success) on my facebook page and to watch videos on how to talk to other people in order to sign up. The exact words were “you will be a great brand rep as you are already active and healthy, people will flock to you”. That was not my intent at all and I did not sell it to one person.


Isagenix Ionic Alfalfa, bilberry extract, ashwagandha extract, pau d’arco inner bark extract, blueberry extract, aloe vera leaf gel, raspberry juice extract, burdock root extract, rhodiola root extract, deglycyrrhizinated licorice root extract, eleutherococcus senticosus root extract, turmeric root extract, peppermint leaf extract, yellow dock root extract, fennel seed extract, suma root extract, choline bitartrate, betaine HCI, inositol, fructose, potassium citrate, citric acid, purple carrot, natural flavor, lime juice powder, pyridoxine HCI, niacinamide, cyanocobalamin, and I-methionine.
I think you know that you will never convince the “true believers” of Isagenix that their product is seriously flawed with regard to real healthy nutrition value. As you can imagine in my 30+ years of practice in nutritional and functional medicine I have literally been approached hundreds of times with the newest, greatest, promise to cure all the ills of the world products both MLM and from nutrition companies. I always ask 3 questions of the promoters of any nutrition product:
Ditch the packaged, processed foods today (even the “healthy” versions). This will ensure you are taking out excess sodium, artificial ingredients and sugar from your diet. Also, ditch the salt shaker and instead use only herbs and spices to flavor your food. You’ll find this can help make a big difference in how you look and feel. Even after one day!

I have just one tiny piece of information to add. I’m a medical librarian so I always like to find peer-reviewed studies to help illuminate an issue. There is still a lot of uncertainty about that whole fructose toxicity thing. Recent reviews of several studies found that there really isn’t enough evidence to show that fructose is causal for metabolic disease, clinical hepatic toxicity, etc. I don’t think the studies are saying we will never find a relationship, but that it’s too soon to make public health declarations or policy based on the science that exists. See:


You have linked to a google patent to outline a process by which Isomaltooligosaccharide CAN BE MADE. This is not necessarily the process that the Isomaltooligosaccharide has undergone in the Isagenix products. It can be made by enzymes or fungal means also, not just with Nickel. An example of fungal means from rice and cassava is http://resjournal.kku.ac.th/abstract/17_5_794.pdf
I will not disagree with you that a clean, whole foods organic diet is the best way to go. No argument there. Nor am I a user of Isagenix or a promoter of it. I live in an area with lots of people promoting the local sources only, organic only, and often vegan or cruelty-free lifestyles. And I always find it interesting that many will speak out vehemently against processed foods, products like Isagenix, Herbalife, etc. because of ingredients like the ones you have listed in your article, and they will defend the necessity to regulate the food you put in your body with an intense level of passion (which is good, what we put into our bodies is of the utmost importance). But then they will pump their bodies full of synthetic, often dangerous and sometimes even fatal, chemicals and hormones with a long history of horrendous side effects (such as birth control and vaccines), without a second thought.
Isagenix was the only thing that has helped me lose any weight at all. They try to base their products off the Paleo system. They strive for quality ingredients. While you may say some of those ingredients are bad or unhealthy, I personally will not argue that. They completely 100% are. However we are talking about the extract of a certain part that is healthy vs the whole part. That is a huge difference. The developer of the products is a master in the industry to know what is healthy and what isnt in most plants and other resources to get its products from.
Isagenix is for anyone that wants to feel better and needs to do a 30-day detox cleanse. The ultimate goal is to get the mind and body in perfect balance through cleansing the body of toxins and providing it with all it needs nutritionally. The aim is to move the body from an acidic to an alkaline state and to reduce inflammation in the body. It supports gut and brain health and boosts the immune system.
The Isagenix cleanse is unique because it not only removes impurities at the cellular level, it builds the body up with incredible nutrition. Besides detoxing the body, Isagenix teaches people a wonderful lesson that they don’t need to eat as much as they are accustom to and eating healthy choices are really important and also a lot of the food we are eating is nutritionally bankrupt. [errors are in the original]
The average detox diet and cleanse lasts for a few days or weeks, but regular cellular cleansing, and using True Cellular Detox™ periodically, is a lifestyle change. Dramatic shifts in health may not occur overnight (though it’s possible), but cleansing at the cellular level is the only way to get real and lasting results in your health.If you are a certified natural health practitioner and are interested in integrating a true cellular detox system into your practice, please call 724.292.7673.
Their medical advisor, Becky Natrajan, MD, tells us on a video presentation that she is “excited about results” but she does not say what those results are or why she thinks the results are due to the product rather than to diet, exercise and other factors. Perhaps her funniest argument is that the $5 a day Isagenix costs you is less expensive than open heart surgery. As if it were a simple choice between the two!
Thanks for reaching out. There are different stages of the Cellular Healing Diet; the advanced stage is basically the ketogenic diet, wherein may lie the confusion. The basic CHD may include small amounts of sprouted ancient grains, whereas the advanced CHD (the keto diet) includes no grains, but much more good fat and moderate protein. See here for Dr. Pompa’s article on ketosis: Ketosis 1: https://drpompa.com/additional-resources/health-tips/ketogenic-diet
Although both MSG and protein hydrolysates are additives that are primarily used as flavor enhancers, they are subject to specific labeling rules that requires their disclosure on ingredient labels. MSG is an isolated salt of the amino acid glutamate, which is used to enhance the savory flavor of foods. While glutamate is found naturally to some degree in nearly all foods (particularly high in cheese, mushrooms, and tomatoes), MSG is an extremely concentrated source. Protein hydrolysates also tend to be naturally higher in glutamate, although are presented with other amino acids and nutrients. Even though they are listed as natural flavors under the Code of Federal Regulations, it’s mandated that they be specifically listed along with their source on the ingredients label. Common types of hydrolysates often appear on labels under such names as “hydrolyzed wheat gluten,” “hydrolyzed soy protein,” and “autolyzed yeast extract.”
A few commenters expressed concerns about the product. The Isagenix rep couldn’t answer questions about origin of ingredients and quality control. There have been no controlled studies. Where is the evidence? How do we know it is safe? Long-term results remain to be seen. How many can maintain this restrictive lifestyle for years? Why isn’t it being regulated by the FDA?

Are there independent clinical studies to suggest people live longer and lose weight by eating organic food? Are happier? Less stressed? Less prone to disease? In the early 1900s there was plenty of organic food. Did people live longer and disease free because they ate it? No. Over time and with medical science advances, people live longer anyway. Do they live longer and remain healthy? No. They don’t. To live longer is no fun without being fit and healthy.

Tracy, why aren’t you calling out the real scams like vaccines, GMOS, chemo, etc that the rest of the world isn’t buying into? If science is so great why is autism, chronic disease, cancer on the rise? Oh that’s right… How would you get paid? You really think you are fooling anyone? You are just a shill, in your terms, for the real scams… The difference with Isagenix is if I don’t like it I can stop, I don’t have a choice to eliminate the attack on me when my water is fluoridated, or there is GMO’s in that supposed organic food or there are pesticides engineered into the food that doesn’t wash off… Your lack of common sense is stunning… It is next to impossible to eat healthy in America even if you wash your produce you moron!
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.

Today is Day Four of my special "Does it Work" Health tests, and perhaps, today features the most controversial test of them all.  I'm focusing on nutritional cleansing weight loss plans   These days, it seems almost any magazine you open or red carpet interview you watch on TV, celebrities are talking about detoxing to jump-start their weight loss.
I’m so confused. I’ve been eating a paleo diet for 3 weeks. We’ll as close as I can follow. Not completely organic everything but I try. No dairy or grains, beans etc.. Lost 4 pds. Now I’m isagenix 2nd week. Feel awesome. Lost 3pds libido went up ( prob tmi lol!) energy is that of a 20 y.o. And I just had a baby. ( which was complicated pregnancy ). I really don’t want to consume grains gmos or gluten so now I’m not sure what I will do. But I love feeling good.
I’m a little bitter about this. I agree, Isagenix is a terrible product. I have never taken it, nor will I, because any product that is made in a factory and has the storage life to be shipped across the country and sit in a person’s cupboard for weeks on end, must be terribly processed. Any wholesome food, such as a strawberry, dehydrated, ground, or whatever they do to turn it into a powder, seems suspect. It makes me think of Kool-aid or Ice Tea powder. My aunt sells Isagenix and tries to get everyone on board with the product as well. She thinks she’s gifted because she has helped “1000’s” of people lose weight and live a better lifestyle. My aunt considers herself to be a very knowledgeable health professional but likely has no inkling of what each ingredient is or what it does to you. She doesn’t have the nutrition courses, or the chemistry, biochemistry, or biology courses, in order to understand how the body works and what types of nutrients, and chemicals are harmful to a person. I haven’t read your credentials but you do have far more knowledge than the average person in regards to what is healthful and what is not. People don’t seem to understand that company’s are going to “find” that information they need to back up their products; there is a lot of manipulation of “facts” in order to get people to believe in the product. Also, how can any product be beneficial that forces you to starve yourself, and losing weight so rapidly….. from my understanding, 1lb a week of weight loss is best, and it’s healthful eating and exercise that get people functioning optimally.
Listen to your bodies people. If you are using these products as a stepping stone from a fast-food lifestyle, great…but don’t let your journey stop there…keep making an effort to push forward. THere is a reason Kraft foods mac and cheese has a long list of ingredients (including ingredients used to make TIRES) in the US…but only has 5 ingredients on the box in Italy. Europe has protested Mansanto and these other companies for a long time. The sad truth is American’s are just unaware. I admit that was me just a few years ago even though I always ate “healthy”. Keep your eyes and ears open, be mindful of what you put in your body and LISTEN to your body…just don’t give up and stop with these network marketing products…I have been on both sides of it and will not put my name behind any of the products currently on the MLM market. I commend everyone who is trying to get healthy and do what works for them, I pass no judgment, but know that these articles are not trying to cr*p on your efforts, they are actually very necessary and USEFUL and I am so grateful for this information and further confirmation on all of the studies I have read about just by googling myself.
Also, you mention Monsanto in your article and their statement that GMO’s are healthy. But there is nothing stating that behind their business finances are investors who profit from the use and sale of genetically engineered food. In fact, they actually spent millions opposing a bill that would require the mandatory labeling of GMO’s on food products. Is that not also biased? Their own scientists “who make claims” warned Monsanto executives about the harmfulness of using Monsanto created products such as DDT, Agent Orange, etc. on farming crops. It has a harmful effect on the people who not only eat it, but who are exposed to it when the harvest comes.
For snacks throughout the day, I ate Isagenix Snacks in French Vanilla flavour. They are round wafers made of New Zealand whey protein and are low calorie. I was allowed to have up to six a day. The first two Cleanse Days I ate all six each day. The last two Cleanse Days I wasn’t as hungry so I only had three. I preferred to chew these up fast because it releases the flavour. I tried sucking on them but I didn’t like that as much. They really do work to stop cravings and hold you off until the next meal. They also come in Chocolate flavour.

What is a Cellular Detox? Cellular Detoxes and cellular cleanses are extremely popular today and there are many options to choose from. While many people may be unsure which detox diet, cleanse or product is best for them, it’s important to understand how they work, and that a cellular detox and cellular cleanse is much more than just changing the diet, or doing a 10-day herbal cleanse or juice fast.
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.
And too add to all this madness. I was born and rise in the carribean so I know what real cow milk, good cow, pig, goat, chicken, duck meat taste like as well as good fruits taste like. All from trees that grow naturally and animals that feed on natural grass, not hormone and antibiotic or pesticide nonsense that are used in farms etc… Only when I came to North America to live and eating the crap they call meat that got me sick….. I could go on and on but I will not..As stated before do not deny me my feeling from using super nutrient in my body that works for me. The end and

I have a very small farm (less than 4 acres), I own a small, Heritage breed Jersey cow who produces over 4 gallons of butter-fat rich milk every day that I milk her, and that is WITH me sharing milk with the calf. MY cows live to be 17 years +/- old and pass away (usually) laying down in their barn on a soft bed of sweet hay/straw, closing their eyes and just not waking the next morning.
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.
that is not even saying what goes inside the corporate site. Bigots calling people monkeys is okay? they have a reputation of paying off employees or using the clause that AZ is a at will state making the work atmosphere unbearable with trumped up charges and causing employees to quit. Knowing they cannot legally fight back due to they rack up billable hours. I use to work in their customer service department and knew that if you made your boss looked good you were good. The moment that made them look back the retaliated. So treating and cheating people is nothing that Isagenix has not only done to their customers but also to their employees. Equal opportunity employer that’s funny. They will also throw other MLM’s under scrutiny for things they try to claim as to try to sway attention away from them turning other businesses in…..
Former Isagenix customer Megan Moulton says that the power of the social media groups and the communities can be the magic bullet for hardcore fans. "You can become a celebrity within the Isagenix community. Social media can make you feel special and affirmed, and the more you post the more important you can feel. Some people really seem to need that."
Also, you mention Monsanto in your article and their statement that GMO’s are healthy. But there is nothing stating that behind their business finances are investors who profit from the use and sale of genetically engineered food. In fact, they actually spent millions opposing a bill that would require the mandatory labeling of GMO’s on food products. Is that not also biased? Their own scientists “who make claims” warned Monsanto executives about the harmfulness of using Monsanto created products such as DDT, Agent Orange, etc. on farming crops. It has a harmful effect on the people who not only eat it, but who are exposed to it when the harvest comes.
3. When speaking of the balance of Omega-3 to Omega-6, you only talked about the sunflower oil and made no mention of the other sources of EFA in the products. Because Isagenix is a system of Intermittent Fasting combined with healthy food choices (whole foods), the typical person’s intake of Omega-6 will fall to acceptable levels. Did you take that into account or did you make the assumption that people used these products in conjunction with the Standard American Diet (high in Omega-6)?
Ancestral Nutrition Robbie Bianchi Pray I have found nowhere on the Isagenix website that the whey they used is from grass-fed cows. I’ve found this on sites affiliated with Isagenix, but I think it’s highly suspicious that it’s not on their website. Plus, the milk is denatured, like non-fat dry milk powder, milk protein concentrate, etc. They also contain maltodextrin (often GMO derived, a food additive), they contain synthetic vitamins, isolated fructose (which is toxic to the liver), “natural” flavors, etc. I mean, technically MSG and aspartame can be labeled as natural flavors. I agree that protein shakes can be helpful for some people, which is why I recommend this one: http://amzn.to/1ayypJN (affiliate link).
I believe everything you have said. I too fell for the lose the weight feel great marketing pitch. After I bought the product I realized that I had made a big mistake and promptly returned it. I am still on thier fb page for support. They need all the support they can get cause they are starving to death!!! One girl was having Niacin flush which is what I was experiencing and other people were encouraging to keep at it, one supporter told her that Niacin flushes were good for you, well I mentioned that this sort of thing leads to liver failure and they all pounced on me but telling a factual truth. It almost resemblies cult like behaviour. Scary. Well the truth will prevail in the end.
Im away from home for 13 hours a day with work (on an island which I have to catch a ferry to and from), I have a dog who deserves some of my time daily, like to keep a clean house, have clean clothes every day, get some exercise daily if I can, and I don’t have a wife to cook for me like most of my work mates do. So far with the cleanse, I initially dropped 4kg and 3 belt sizes, (1st time under 110kg in 10 years), am sleeping better, given up coffee, thinking clearer, no more inflammation in my joints, and I now have the energy to: work out more often (I’ve put 1kg of lean muscle back on bringing weight loss back down to 3kg), give my dog more exercise, and most importantly, I now have the energy and the drive to plan my main meal for the day with the absolute focus on the very REAL and natural nutrition you imply from organic produce. I’ve known about good nutrition at least at a basic to intermediate level for some time because I care about my health and I realise that only I am the authority with which my life and health depend. Intimately. But that doesn’t mean that I am immune from the pressures of life, long hours at work, bills to pay, adventures to plan and pay for, etc. I am human. And so we all are. All so very different in our experiences and subsequent characters, yet so very much the same in our inherent nature.
I am happy to finally have a chance to come clean, and I am glad that this blogger is speaking the truth. Don’t be fooled: the values of integrity and quality are sorely lacking in this company. The “clinical research” that is touted by the company and the reps is nothing more than researchers being paid by Isagenix to come to certain conclusions. Please spread the word!
Your comment on nonfat dry milk confuses me as you’re saying it’s denatured protein. This product, as it states in your heading, says ‘Low heat nonfat dry milk’. What I know about ‘low heat’ dry milk is that is classified as ‘Grade A’ or ‘Extra Grade’ and is required to contain a minimum 6.00 mg of undenatured whey protein nitrogen. This not classed as denatured. In addition, the theoretical ‘oxidised cholesterol’ contained in nonfat dry milk is negligible, particularly as in this instance low heat nonfat dry milk is not the product’s main ingredient. You say are sceptical about the pasture-fed cows but there is no evidence to suggest it is sourced from anywhere else. If your grocer tells you their spinach is locally grown and organic, do you follow the delivery van back to farm to see if they’re telling the truth? Do you stand in the farms and factories and watch the process of each and every product you buy to make sure they are doing what they claim? Who does that? We are all at the mercy of whatever our food labels and sellers tell us, along with some government rules and regulations to keep them in check.
Some nutrients can be added in the form of teas and powders to aid the body in both phases of detoxification for a more effective cleanse (note: elimination is critical during a cleanse to make sure that you are passing out of the body the toxins being liberated from the cells…and elimination can come from all forms so body odor, bad breath, breakouts are all to be anticipated and actually are signs of an effective cleanse as long as they clear up).

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 take issue with anything listed as “natural flavors.” Because chances are, it’s not all that natural. Hell, even monosodium glutamate (MSG) can be masquerading as a natural flavor. The labelling is loosely regulated. In Food Rules: A Doctor’s Guide To Healthy Eating, Dr. Shanahan discusses a study in which 95% of ingredients listed as “natural flavor” contained MSG.
The cleansers in my Isagenix Facebook group said it would be easier after day five, and they were right. I got used to drinking a shake for breakfast and a shake for dinner, and looked forward to my low-glycemic lunches like it was Christmas morning. (I was salivating as I put pieces of lettuce into a container at the salad bar.) Though I didn’t lose any more pounds than the previous weigh-in, this didn’t deter my motivation. For the first time in a long time, I’m feeling good—digesting food nicely (in the past, I’d have a bit of a rumble here and there), and oddly, I have more energy than ever before.
I appreciate the information you have brought to the forefront. I have been a practicing healthcare provider for over 14 years now. I have used high quality supplements throughout my career in efforts to help people become more healthy. I have the ability to see health from the inside using objective data. We use blood, urine and other clinical testing to assess sickness and toxicity. I am someone that does their due diligence in order to put my name on that recommendation for my patients. This is precisely the reason I use the highest quality supplements from high quality companies, this one included. If I feel one company uses a superior product, I will use that particular supplement for that goal. I have always said I would not be married to any one company and feel that I have some of the best companies at my disposal for my patients. With regards to the deep cellular / molecular cleanse I have not seen anything work nearly as well as Isagenix, using objective data.

While your cells constantly detoxify, consider doing a more formal detox as a spring (or fall) full-body cleanse. These plans, which typically last two to three weeks, include all the essentials to help your liver and other organs optimally detoxify, including protein, nutrients, and a detox-minded eating plan. Our Detox System provides all the nutrient support you need to keep your natural cellular and body detoxification in peak, all in one convenient package.

Sad also you have to bash a product when hundreds of thousands are getting GREAT results…..with a 96% success rate with people KEEPING IT OFF and feeling great its hard to deny its a good product. I would LOVE to see the results for your product. 96% I doubt its that much! thanks for coming out though. I also find it funny that you said you didn’t want to click on the page that EXPLAINS all the things you said were bad, JUST because it was from isa. SO you wont even let the company defend it self and SHOW YOU that really your dont know what your talking about. Like so many else have said……what are your credentials? This product was refereed to me by MY DOCTOR. who HAS done WAY more research on this stuff then EITHER of us has. She said she wouldn’t have put her name behind it if it wasn’t amazing stuff. So who am I going to believe…..someone that just looks at words and makes ASSUMPTIONS or my doctor who has all to loose if this product was a giant FLOP?


This is another wonderful fruit that you can easily add a cup-full of to any detox drink. Be warned, though, that cranberries in their raw form are quite tart and sour. In case you’re wondering, you cannot substitute real cranberries for the sugar-fortified craisins. Cranberries in their raw form have been shown in studies to fight urinary tract infections. Their cleansing power lies in a class of antioxidants called proanthocyanidins, which amplify the potency of other antioxidants that fight free radicals.
Cleansing to ‘kick-start’ weight loss is like getting a base tan before your holiday to Mexico. It’s a useless waste of time. In the end, the weight you lose from extreme dieting and cleansing is mostly water, which will return as soon as you resume eating a normal diet.  It’s just basic physiology. I know the promise of ‘transformation’ in just 30 days is tempting, but it’s also close to impossible. Again, please don’t let emotion dictate your choices here.

In moderation, sunflower oil may provide certain health benefits as part of an overall balanced diet.”

But more recent studies show that while increasing fish oil intake improves omega-3 index, reducing LA intake doesn’t have any effect. Nor does increasing LA in the diet lead to any increase in molecules produced through pro-inflammatory pathways (5). Those pathways appear to be tightly controlled and not influenced by LA intake. – I know you said that this oil can cause inflammation in our bodies….but the research (studies NOT done or funded by Isagenix…no worries) shows that this is not the case.
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? 
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.
I suffered from severe Gluten and Irritable Bowel disease for years, over 5 in fact. And although i was being seen by my family doctor, nutritionists, and had completed all sorts of tests for Intestinal diseases no one was ever to fix me. I couldn’t leave the house without plotting out my route of every bathroom from point A to B, carried around plastic bags in case I needed to go and there was no bathroom around to make a stop at; I was also exhausted all the time, never had any energy. I lived a miserable life.
The average detox diet and cleanse lasts for a few days or weeks, but regular cellular cleansing, and using True Cellular Detox™ periodically, is a lifestyle change. Dramatic shifts in health may not occur overnight (though it’s possible), but cleansing at the cellular level is the only way to get real and lasting results in your health.If you are a certified natural health practitioner and are interested in integrating a true cellular detox system into your practice, please call 724.292.7673.
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?
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!
So, I am going to finish my 30 day Isagenix cleanse (with questionable ingredients), apply intent towards this “tool” being a useful ally towards the transition to a healthier, happier, and more heartfelt lifestyle. And this coming November when Im sitting on Mother Earths bare and natural surface in the Ecuadorian Amazon under the “Eyebrows of the Andes” with the Secoya Elders, learning and experiencing true rainforest medicine and ancient wisdom in a place where the word “organic” does not exist, while the smoke and destruction of industry that threatens the survival of our very race grows ever closer decimating all in its path, I will think. Organically.
I too agree with all that you have said. I have trialled both Herbalife and Isagenix for my own research as I am in the fitness industry. I have gotten more success from telling people to eat a balanced diet of whole foods and the occasional supplemental vitamins (relevant to the goal e.g.. weight loss or muscle gain etc). Whats even worse now is that Personal Trainers are the target to further promote it as the age old saying that ‘my trainer said it was what i should eat’. Shame shame shame to those trainers that do this. They do this to also get more financial benefits from the products as we all low with this multi-level marketing (pyramid scheme).
Make sure to eat breakfast, lunch, dinner and at least one snack (absolutely no skipping meals!) and ensure they consist of whole, real foods only. Eating consistently throughout the day will help you lay the foundation for ongoing healthy eating. I’m talking loads of veggies, lean protein such as grass-fed steak, chicken, fish, eggs and healthy fats from nuts, seeds or olives, avocado or coconut.
