Recent studies indicate the presence of fructans in the digestive tract also protects against osteoporosis by increasing the absorption of calcium and magnesium, and may protect against diabetes and colon cancer. “Ingredient in tequila plant may fight osteoporosis and other diseases,” The American Chemical Society News Release, March 23, 2010 (http://portal.acs.org/portal/acs/corg/content).

"We can help our bodies do their job and get rid of toxins and byproducts of metabolic processes by simply eating well," says Kim Larson, RDN, spokesperson for The Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics. That's good news, since extreme cleanses can be harmful: They deprive you of the fuel your body and brain need, they rid your body of helpful gut bacteria, and they can contribute to an unhealthy relationship with food.

Then I’m told that all modern food has chemicals and it is the liver putting fat around those chemicals that has caused me to gain weight……. and I always thought it was poor diet like eating too much sugary things that did it, a case of more calories in than being burned. Apparently I’m wrong, but there was no explanation forthcoming in reply to my comment that I managed to lose weight by exercising more and watching what I ate, especially cutting right back on sugary foods and sugar, otherwise making no dietary changes. I even managed to wear trousers again that I’d had to stop wearing because I got too big for them.
To get the recommended amount of sleep daily, figure out what time you need to go to sleep in order to get in at least seven hours nightly. Go to bed early, turn off all lights and all electronics that provide light and sound (including your smartphone). It's also recommended to put down electronic devices at least 30 minutes prior to falling asleep, as the light emitted from these devices can stimulate your brain and make it difficult to fall asleep.[36]
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.

It is a little sad that doctors prescribe drugs that mask symptoms and not more nutrition as a whole. I have to agree with the “air filter” analogy. We have so much junk food out there with ingredients that are engineered and not necessary and very toxic to our system, yet the FDA does nothing about them. If you look at evolution, non of these ingredients were around until chemists came up with them so we did not “evolve” to process these things. That is where I think we are toxic. Stuff like Red Bull and similar drinks are lauded for the “lifestyle” of all things daredevil, yet nobody talks against it being an incredibly toxic drink along with most other energy drinks. Doritos are still produced with MSG!!! yet nobody says anything about that, which is beyond frightening. So for me, if all the ingredients are natural I think there are other things we should be more focused on. I have tried Isagenix and for me I used it every day for Breakfast and a snack (bar form) at lunch. It helped me to be aware of what I put into my body, so now for me if it didnt come out of the ground then it is not natural is how I eat now. So for that reason I am glad I did the Isagenix. I was looking for nutrition and got an education on awareness of my health so in the end it was a good thing for me.
If you are trying to endorse a whey only supplement as a substitute for a protein based MEAL REPLACEMENT as part of complete program including supplements then you have failed. Isagenix does, in fact, have a whey only NON GMO, UNdenatured product as well called isapro, however, the shakes you are reviewing are not this product (though they are also fabulous if you take the time to find out the source of the ingredients). You are clearly trying to stir the pot because you don’t like programs like this. I believe in real food, but I also find nothing wrong with this particular program. They are not all created equal. If you are going to say that even though the products are stated non GMO that they likely aren’t, then how can you not think the same for the things you eat? If it says non GMO then it should be assumed it is, as far as we know (unless there is a situation like the GMO wheat in which no one is aware, but it is unfair to assume this). In all honesty I think you are trying to use the big name of Isagenix to draw attention to your blog so you can get more sponsorship. Blogs are nothing but marketing tools for your own interest in the same way you are trying to say these programs are.
I’ve used the products before -never sold them as MLM are just tacky IMO- and I have to say there is a lot of very misinformed, fanatical weirdness going on with it. I think a lot of the people who are fanatical about it, are not very educated in general- that is what I noticed across the board with them. But that’s maybe also why, they’ve fallen into it so deeply.
The UIC study evaluated body weight, body composition, cardiovascular risk factors, and oxidative stress biomarkers in 40 women. The subjects in the Isagenix group had superior results across all parameters. They lost weight more predictably week to week and 56 percent more weight and 47 percent more body fat overall. Notably, the subjects also lost twice as much visceral fat, which led to a greater reduction in oxidative stress and cardiovascular risk markers.
Your intellectual honesty and integrity is much appreciated on your unbiased review. As a practitioner of integrative and functional medicine, as well as bioidentical hormone replacement, many patients come to my practice looking for effective weight loss solutions. Your approach in my view is the most optimal and your advice is clinically valid. Some patients are looking for faster weight loss solutions and do have very deranged lipids and metabolic parameters including hypertension and prediabetes and lipid disorders. For patients looking for some quicker weight loss and to promote self confidence I had used Medifast with their nutritional coaches for three years with many patients losing weight to their desired goal and then switching to maintence phase with most of your dietary recommendations. For the past six months I have been using Isagenix products on patients with better results than medifast for patients that have more than twenty pounds to lose. After they have achieved their weight loss goals most move to eating a whole, organic diet that is either paleo or a hybrid with the Mediterranean diet with good results. I hate the MLM aspect so am not affiliated as an associate but the products do work. Since 96% of patients with significant weight loss gain their weight back your idea of eating whole organic foods to detoxify is sound advice as is all the nutritional advice I have read on your site. The adaptogenic herbs in Ionix Supreme in my opinion is why people can stick to this diet for 30 days. Since high protein diets do produce quick weight loss I found this protein to be superior to the soy protein in medifast and more filling. I do not advocate eating this way for life and would refer patients to you for your sound advice that are interested in taking a slower more sustainable path. I have met many Isagenix associates who have personally lost and maintained their weight loss with Isagenix. Since there are no clinical trials comparing products all we have are testimonials. Some users are overly zealous just like religious fanatics who have had great results with their particular brand of religion. I use it as one clinical tool in my bag to help patients to a better way of eating and health like you promote. Keep up the great work you are doing! Most within Isagenix as well as Medifast are doing good things with great intentions but have not reached the higher path you are advocating.
You may like to post the nutrition panels along with the ingredients. For instance the “toxic agave” that’s “loaded with fructose” is in the slim cakes. This product has a total sugar amount of only 4 grams. This includes the sugar from the cranberries and sugar. So the amount from the organic agave is minuscule. You really have to put things in perspective. If you were drinking a bottle of organic agave everyday you might have problems:)

Dani, I came across this blog post in a very random way but after reading through all the comments on here I felt strongly I needed to reply to this post. First, I appreciate your passion as a fellow person on the health crusade of trying to educate people about toxicity and nutrition. I myself am a published Author, nutritional researcher, Certified Health Coach, along with being an activist educating people on the effects of GMO’s, toxicty, and poor diet. I have personally been using the Isagenix products for over 6 years and here is what I have to say based on all that has been discussed above. 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. My body was deficient in many key nutrients and I was feeling sick. After just 3 weeks on just one Isagenix shake a day my blood work came back perfect! My doctor had never seen anything like it before. I had changed nothing else in my diet except I had added in Isagenix. That for me was a reality check as to what I was really not receiving and absorbing in my body from the regular food sources I was eating. ( all organic, locally grown, non-gmo, all of it!) Mind you I have a solid background in nutrition so I knew what I was doing diet wise.. but NOTHING worked the way Isagenix did in my body. I have eaten this food through both my pregnancies, nursed my babies each for a year, and I have 2 of the healthiest children ever.. who have grown up eating this superfood!! With that being said I want to address these key points.


I am not evolved. You are not evolved. “WE” are not evolved. “WE” are nobody. I am nobody. And who I am is not important to YOUR experience. If you are curious about who I am, then its only a matter of interest isn’t it? Like if you are hungry and you go to a restaurant, standing at the window and watching me eat won’t ease your hunger. Will it? You must go “within” and partake.
I have been looking for negative feedback on Isagenix and am having a hard time finding anything. So glad to find your blog! What gets me is the people that are selling this product..and I have several on my FB page, claim not only can you lose weight, but selling the product has made them incredibly rich! Buying Ferarri’s, huge homes, fishing boats and flying on their ‘private planes’ to speak about the product. Come on already!!!!
What’s disconcerting to me is the culty behavior of all these Isagenix drones. “You must use Isagenix. Isagenix is like manna from the Gods. How dare you criticize it! It heals the world!” Blahblahblah. So annoying and anyone with half a thought in their brain could see through this rubbish. Dani, thanks for all you do and ignore the trolls. They are all brainwashed. I’m sure some people are “healed” and lost weight and cured of every disease under the sun but the fact of how they attack and defend and argue would make me run for the hills and never even consider their products. I know a few Isa-head drones in real life and every conversation is a ploy to get me to “just try the healthy lifestyle”, “just give it 30 days”, “don’t you want more energy?” blahblah and even one has gone so far as to say that my doctor who treats me via functional medicine and nutrition is robbing me of money and she wishes I could just try this program. Then she talks all about how much money she makes from the sales. I’m put off. I’m sticking with the ancestral nutrition route forever.
Quite a stimulating thread you have here! I just found your site doing some other research and stumbled upon it. I use Isagenix products (among others…of course, there are other fine products out there) in my nutritional regimen. My mother has been taking their flagship product, Product B for a couple years now. During this time (after 1 1/2 yrs), she was able to get off virtually all her medications for pain from a spinal condition and a digestive condition. Product B was the only new thing she introduced in her daily regimen. She feels younger and has more energy than before. She is now 93. But, this is mainly what I wanted to clarify. Your call regarding your question about their products being certified as GMO free. I made a similar call myself early on asking if their ingredients are all organic. (At the time, I was inquiring just about Product B). I was given a more in depth answer than you were. I was told that some of their ingredients are sourced from outside of the U.S. where other countries don’t have the same organic certification process that we have here, so it would not be possible to declare them as “certified” organic. However, she gave me their very detailed site where it declared that the step-by-step process for PB met or surpassed organic standards. As an example, the co-founder and master formulator, master botanist and master herbalist, John Anderson, happens to own land in the Himalayas where his herbs that he uses for PB are very well protected at their pristine source. So, unfortunately, when getting answers from a customer service individual, sometimes they may be just the short answer, the one you might want to hear, but not the whole answer. Also, correct me if I’m wrong, but my understanding is that if something is organic, it is not allowed to be GMO.
You see, every day there are millions of cellular reactions occurring in your body. Some of this activity causes damage within your body. As with any equipment that is used a lot, the daily stress causes breakdown. Fortunately, your body is built for such circumstances and can naturally heal anything that isn’t working at an optimal level. This is autophagy.
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.
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.
When your body is overloaded with toxins, your body does not want the toxins roaming freely, and so the toxins are stored as excess waste in fat cells. This stored waste makes your body become less efficient, including slowing down your metabolism. Your metabolism regulates nutrient use, energy production, and weight. The result, unwanted or hard to get rid of accumulated fat cells. You may also feel sluggish, have a lack of energy, have trouble concentrating and could fall victim to a variety of illnesses. This is where the Isagenix detox cleanse steps in and helps re-balance your body with nutritional cellular cleansing.
But, I am sure we will have to agree to disagree. 🙂 So happy that you are doing great things for your body by being super picky about what you put into it and doing a lot of research. I am sure you do WONDERS for your clients. Isagenix does wonders for it’s clients too. Consider how unhealthy our culture is and how even small improvements in the diet can assist in improving our health. Sometimes it is baby steps and being too picky can make people steer clear of healthy eating all together because it seems sooooo overwhelming!
3. Can the “results” be verified by clinical trials and not just anecdotal stories from enthusiastic but brainwashed distributors? Hey, I’ve been there, you get pumped up at conventions, everyone around you has a fantastic story to tell, they parade a bunch of docs or scientists up on stage and well… it goes on and on. I have nothing against the MLM industry per se. What concerns me and always has is that suddenly Mary Jones, a real estate agent or secretary goes to a few meetings, maybe a convention and suddenly is an ”expert” in nutrition, weight loss or whatever. I have been studying and practicing clinical nutrition for over 30 years. The one thing I know for certain is that the more I know and learn the more I know there is more to learn.
1/4 an apples worth of fructose per shake is nothing, my family has grown apples locally for over 100 years and we are often eating over 6 per day ALL YEAR ROUND, that’s a dozen shakes worth 365 days a year, now obviously there are a lot of factors involved, but JUST that alone suggests that there is more going on, my family all live into their 90’s or older, I doubt that eating that amount of fructose is deleterious to our health. And yes an apple is different then fructose alone…I’m just talking about the sugar amount.
ALthough I appreciate a well written article with information about good and bad clean healthy eating, I have to disagree with your blog. I’m not too sure which isagenix website you visited but your information is inaccurate, and you do not have a referenace to and actual isagenix website in your resources. Isagenix is SOY FREE, and GLUTEN FREE. I just think if you are going to give people advice on health and wellness then you should do your true due diligence in your research. If you did get this information straight from isagenix.com i would like to know where? I just searched their website and could find nothing that said they use soy or gluten. I also read this on their website as a straight descritpion copy and pasted “Available in Creamy Dutch Chocolate, Creamy French Vanilla and Black Sesame, our shakes are also low in saturated fat, sodium and cholesterol with added enzymes that break down carbohydrates, proteins and fats to maximize the absorption of key nutrients. What’s more, IsaLean Shakes contain 24 grams of high-quality undenatured protein from New Zealand dairy cows that exceed USDA organic standards. Best of all, at only 240 calories, 6 grams of fat and less than $3 a meal, an IsaLean Shake is the perfect, well-balanced meal, no matter your lifestyle.

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.

With that being said I want to address these key points.

Every diet out there is a scam and none of them work, and if they do it is only temporary. You only need to do TWO things people…it’s not rocket science!! Eat healthy and exercise – That is it folks, and the quicker everyone understands that concept and avoid the easy way out, the better we will all be. There is a reason why the diet industry is a multi-billion cash grab, because there is a sucker born every minute. The Weight Loss Market in the U.S. is up 1.7% to $61 Billion dollars — that’s just the US, are you kidding me?

I found myself about 25 days ago, being faced with the choice of trying Isagenix. I looked into it. I did some research. I was discerning. And given that those who introduced me to it were close family and I had been watching their results closely and was actually impressed, I decided to give it a go. But lets be clear about something: I owned that decision completely. It was not sold, because I will not be sold to. Now, 20 days in, so many of my hopes and dreams are back in gear and the adventures I’ve been hoping and praying to be part of are within my conscious control. Isagenix didn’t do that. I did. I saw Isagenix as a tool and I realised that my application of that tool would be paramount to the success or failure of the venture. Sure, I understand and appreciate that some of the ingredients are suspect. But so is the fluoride added to water supplies that is still mandatory in most provinces and states of New Zealand and Australia where I’ve spent the majority of my 39 years. And we know what that stuff does to our pineal gland… right? And what the pineal gland does for us and how important latest neurological studies are suggesting it is to our overall experience as “living systems?” I really hope thats a bandwagon those of you with “credentials” are on. I don’t mean that disrespectfully, I sincerely mean that.
We know. The last time you went to bed at 6 p.m. you were six-years-old. But if you can at least start thinking about getting to bed a few hours earlier than usual, you might actually get a few more hours shut-eye. And you need it. The late-night celebrating may have done a number on your weight loss efforts. A recent study found sub-par sleep could undermine weight loss by as much as 55 percent! Start to unwind by x-ing out of this browser, and shutting down all your digital devices.

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!

There is plenty of information out there, I personally went through the ingredients and researched each ingredient and feel very comfortable that I am consuming good product, my body also tells me it is good. I also eat whole natural food when I’m not eating Isagenix, I believe the American food system is broken and needs a reform. Even organic crops sit next to regular crops and unfortunately get the mist of pesticides. It’s scary where our food system is when so many other countries like Mexico, New Zealand and Australia and several others have reformed not allowing companies like Monsanto to exist. If the product is not good then why would a scientist in retirement who has 2000 patents and plenty of money come out of retirement to help people feel better? It’s clearly not about the money – he was already rich, so why then would he come out of enjoying his life of retirement to work if it weren’t to make great products and help people feel healthy? that you can research too off of the isagenix website… Wishing everyone health across the world! It’s all we have!!!
Today the marketplace is cluttered with detox diets that promise to help you lose weight, boost your energy levels and more. However, many popular detox diets, especially those that involve extreme low-calorie fasting, can rob the body of important nutrients and place the body in starvation mode, which actually slows your metabolism. Other downsides of many detox diets include: dehydration, fatigue, dizziness, nausea and even colon damage.
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.
The greatest number of comments were testimonials: “I took it and I lost weight.” They claimed not just weight loss, but a variety of improvements. It allegedly cured fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, and hemorrhoids. It facilitated getting off sleeping pills and caffeine, balanced brain chemistry (what does that mean?), improved focus and mental clarity, allowed running longer marathons with less fatigue, saved a failing marriage, stopped irritability and crankiness, kept arm from getting sore after pitching, “Made my son interact appropriately with peers, take care of himself, and want to be hugged and kissed,” and “I made money selling it.” One said, “My out of control Irritable Bowel Syndrome disappeared and I had the healthiest BM in about 6 years! … you can’t brainwash POO!!” Two commented that the Isagenix program provides motivation; one said he needs “structer” (structure?) to stay on a diet.
Anyone who did the cleans and did lose weight, I can’t even fathom. each shake has 240 calories add in a light dinner say 400 calories, thats 880 calories a day as an intake. I know calories are not always perfect and I don’t pretend to know what I am talking about but I think you would have to be 80 pounds to eat 840 calories a day and not lose weight. At my size I burn approx. 3400 calories a day, hence my weight loss. Add in about 3-500 burned at the gym and I am losing a pound a day in just calories (which I know id not a perfect science)
• Veggie Flush Salad: Light and refreshing, beets have nutrients which help detoxify the body by purifying the liver and blood. A powerhouse trio of asparagus, a natural diuretic; fennel, which relieves gastrointestinal ailments to get your tummy feeling flat; and kale, which plays a role in both phases of the liver’s detoxification process, will have you feeling rejuvenated in no time.
We were approached by a rep/shill with isagenix product b in particular as an answer for our child’s Autism I was hesitant and work with medical professionals so asked what if anything they knew and the answer I received was simple and quick if there was a cure or some sort of beneficial treatment the Australian Government would be all over it. Our situation made us a target. This deliberate targeting of my child’s disability and extremely pushy rep/shill is shameful he wouldn’t take no for an answer offered all sorts of research and papers all performed by whom I believe to be the founder of Isagenix No independent research to back it up. I delayed months and every question was shot down with research and results. From cured cancer to regression completely from Autism to regrowth of cells etc etc…
“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!
I also looked at the amino acid distribution. Firstly, since the mixture is completely and totally fabricated why not get the amino acid distribution to reflect the optimal profile of the essential amino acids for humans? Secondly, when one looks at the branched chain amino acids (leucine, isoleucine, valine) it is clear that one shake provides the required daily dose. Of course, convincing people that they need to consume two shakes a day works wonders in enhancing their profit margin.
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.
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.
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.
You mentioned many times in your blog and in responses to others that your objections were only to certain products, ingredients, or processes from Isagenix. I have been using it for about 6 months now. I do not sell or promote it and am not a fanatic or nut like some of the others posting here have been portrayed. I initially started as a serious skeptic, talked reluctantly into it by my wife and sister-in-law. I had a serious weight problem and my health was gradually getting worse. While I may or may not agree that certain Isagenix products are bad or good for me, I have had a significant improvement in my health and weight during this time. What I object to the most in your presentations is the blanket statement, “Isagenix is unhealthy,” while saying that it is certain products and their ingredients or processing you object to. I could find absolutely no reference to one of their flagship products, Product B, anywhere in your site and yet, it is probably the most important of all their offerings. This is probably what has helped me the most of all the Isagenix products, although I have received benefits from others as well.
PS, as in all things, not just to ms dani, please weight the risks and benefits of any product. I have read some pretty abstract stuff written by highly accomplished people **research John Robbins-The Food Revolution** that stretches facts to the limit. Most things are completely unrealistic to accomplish without being in a proper mindset. Stress alone will take a toll on the digestive system on any organism, be it a plant, dog, rat, human (i.e. leaky gut).
undenatured whey protein, olive oil, flax seeds, medium chain triglycerides (from coconuts), cinnamon, digestive enzymes, alfalfa leaf, sea salt, pysllium seed, vitamin C, iron, iodine (from kelp), stevia, zinc, wild yam, prebiotics and pro biotics, calcium, vitamin B12, folic acid.

I’ve been in this industry since you were still crawling around eating GMO food your mom certainly fed you, and I can tell you that if you think that “WHOLE” foods are something that the average person can afford to put in their body and get as much nutrition as in just 1 shake by Isagenix, then you are sorely mistaken. That’s a thing of the past my dear.
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.
You mentioned many times in your blog and in responses to others that your objections were only to certain products, ingredients, or processes from Isagenix. I have been using it for about 6 months now. I do not sell or promote it and am not a fanatic or nut like some of the others posting here have been portrayed. I initially started as a serious skeptic, talked reluctantly into it by my wife and sister-in-law. I had a serious weight problem and my health was gradually getting worse. While I may or may not agree that certain Isagenix products are bad or good for me, I have had a significant improvement in my health and weight during this time. What I object to the most in your presentations is the blanket statement, “Isagenix is unhealthy,” while saying that it is certain products and their ingredients or processing you object to. I could find absolutely no reference to one of their flagship products, Product B, anywhere in your site and yet, it is probably the most important of all their offerings. This is probably what has helped me the most of all the Isagenix products, although I have received benefits from others as well.
This case is a highly unfortunate example of a person who believed in a supplement, and at no fault of his own, fell victim to the health detriments it caused. Do you think he would have been better off if he had an un-credentialed friend who recommended he stay away from the product, or maybe even recommend he eat whole foods and unprocessed foods instead? I think so.

Thanks for all of the comments. Yes, I too, firmly believe that Isagenix is a complete and total scam. Its marketing scam works because management convinces their sales agents that they are saving the world – yeah by selling expensive highly processed nutritional products (I don’t even want to use the word food) using questionable means and unscientific and undocumented claims.
