2. Isagenix does not use GMO’s period. Isagenix is an International company and the Non-GMO verified process is mostly US based as other countries have already outlawed or banned GMO’s. They use the purest sources on the planet and I know some of the formulators personally and I know the process of what they go through getting the highest quality ingredients in their products. All the products are 3rd party tested for safety, and purity and Isagenix spends millions of dollars a year making sure this happens. Take the Isagenix Greens for example. The formulator of this product is Dr. Tony O’Donnell and he is an nutritional genius, N.D. and a good friend of mine. He has written over 8 books on natural healing, etc and would never be aligned with a company that had toxic or bad products. That is just one example of literally thousands of holistic doctors, nutritionists, scientists, etc that have aligned themselves with Isagenix.
I’ve lost a total of 20 pounds on Isagenix. This is partially due to Isagenix and partially due to working out and tracking my food log and paying close attention to what I’m eating. At first I refused to do the cleanse days because I don’t like NOT eating, but, the cleanse days have helped me drop those pesky last few pounds. I do agree that you can’t stay on Isagenix forever and you need to also learn how to eat whole, healthy, unprocessed foods. The meal replacement shakes are just so EASY for me, which is why I do it. I figure its better to fix a quick shake than going through the drive-through when I’m short on time. I think a lot of people realize or are skeptical if the products are legit, but, if you want to lose weight it makes it easier, which is all I care about right now! The sales aspect of the company IS annoying, and what I choose to take and ingest into my body is my choice, and I wouldn’t want to push this on others and promote it as “healthy” if I wasn’t 100% sure- I’m not a doctor or a nutritional expert.
I actually use Isagenix and I’ve lost 15 lbs so far. I absolutely agree that shakes and supplements are not the way to go. But I also am honest with myself: I work three jobs and have very little time for anything. When it’s time to eat, I’m usually in the car, going to the next job, and end up eating poorly because of it. Doing a shake for two meals helps me so much because I know I’m not going to make a bad food choice (like fast food) and I can also drink it in the car. HOWEVER, I don’t like how expensive Isagenix is. I work three jobs because I’m a musician and while I love what I do, we make next to nothing. I certainly can’t keep doing Isagenix. I can’t afford it. However, from Isagenix I have learned how to choose things that fill me up and are healthy (I’m speaking of the one meal a day here – I have a ton of veggies and usually put quinoa and black beans [I don’t really like meat very much] with it, along with a teensy bit of olive oil) So…
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. 

Diet detoxes, juice cleanses and body purifying diets have become very popular in recent years. While there are a host of benefits to cleaning up your diet and focusing on healthier foods, many diet detoxes or cleanses are unsafe and unhealthy. Health professionals warn that these types of products can be dangerous (especially if followed for a longer period of time). They can lead to muscle breakdown, electrolyte imbalances and nutrient deficiencies.[1] Additionally, much of the weight lost on these programs is water weight, not fat. Once you discontinue the cleanse and go back to normal eating, it's common to regain the weight that was lost.[2] Instead of following a cleanse program to lose weight, clean up your diet, be active and ditch bad habits.


The only thing you should be embarrassed about is that you’re a health coach manipulating people into buying an inferior product so you can profit off of them. It’s not me who doesn’t represent “our profession” well. We do two very different things. I coach people to become healthy via an unprocessed diet, whole foods and an overall healthy lifestyle; not relying on a quick fix, meal replacement product that causes people serious health issues.
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.

This was a study actually performed by a third party which found positive results, and keep in mind that Isagenix may have payed for the study but the University of Illinois at Chicago has its name and reputation on it. It seems to have been a well carried out study and is thorough in both it’s criticisms and possible improvements as well as its conclusions.
Research on fasting’s effect on brain and mood has so far been done on animals, but the results are still promising. It appears that fasting stimulates the production of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), which increases the resistance of brain neurons to degeneration and preserves learning and memory (5). Fasting has also shown to be beneficial in the brain for stimulating growth of new brain neurons, called neurogenesis (6). When levels of BDNF increase, so do levels of serotonin, otherwise known as the “feel good” neurotransmitter (7). This could help explain why one study among aging men found that after two-day fasts, their moods and perceptions of quality of life were improved (8).
Thank you for posting this. I find it deeply disturbing how Isagenix consultants try to tell you how no other food on the planet has as many nutrients. The whey made my skin have terrible and painful acne flareups and the Isagenix Natural Accelerator made me unable to sleep for days. Neither my Isagenix consultant or the company representative I spoke with were honest about their products giving people such side effects. Instead they tried to tell me I had acne before and must be under stress for my job so that’s why I can’t sleep. This is all a pyramid scheme, where they want to make you a lifer while screwing up your digestive system by not giving people the opportunity to let their bodies digest real foods and not processed powder.

I completely agree with everything you wrote in the article bec everything you wrote is the truth. I recently came across an article where isagenix claimed they could not verify if their ingredients were GMO free bec there isn’t accurate testing. I have a new product I bought sitting on my desk called vital proteins which is labeled GMO free. I also have a protein powder in my closet at home which is GMO free and labeled. Isagenix is another gimmick….ANYONE who calorie reduces will lose weight it’s a no brainer!! besides the fact that their ingredients are ok at best they are super effing expensive. and FYI to other readers our bodies are quite capable of removing free radicals on a daily basis if it weren’t we’d be all sick or dead. there are tons of other ways to detox free radicals and heavy metals out of your body; try juicing fresh vegetables and fruits. Dark green vegetables especially cilantro pull heavy metals from the body plus they are loaded with LIVE nutrients. lets be honest if it’s in a can and can sit on a shelf for years how loaded with nutrients can it be. Isagenix is a money making tool for primarily the people at the top! end of story.
A meal replacement shake is possibly better than fast food (although you can make better choices depending on the restaurant), but is certainly worse than normal, reasonably healthy food. Drinking stupid shakes filled with sugar and other crap just isn’t good for you. It’s easy, but it’s certainly not healthy. Not even when these companies lie and tell you IT’S ALL NATURAL!!!

I just found this article and I am SO happy someone finally put this out there in clear and simple context. As a holistic nutritionist, I have been asked many times by clients about this product, and now I can send them to this article for further reading as there is only so much detail I can go into during a consultation without going on a 2 hour rant 😉
Not everyone has fresh raw milk at their fingertips and some of the other ingredients, like grass fed meat. But you can get a lot of protein from organic produce. The big thing about Isagenix is the amino acids. Amino acids are protein. But you can lose weight with organic bone broth too. There are a hundred ways to lose weight without eating synthetic concoctions.
Ok…I just want to say that HUMANS ARE NOT MADE TO EAT THAT STUFF AND LIVE I DONT CARE HOW “HEALTHY” OR “ORGANIC” IT IS! Yep I would agree that our soils and plants do not produce like they used to because of our overuse of pesticides and other crazy things to produce more food for a growing population. I guess we are closer to Soilent Green than we thought.

It was as if no one had actually read what I wrote. No one bothered to address any of my specific criticisms. No one even tried to defend Isagenix’s false claims that toxicity accounts for most disease, that the body protects itself from toxins by coating them with fat, and that internal organs become clogged and deteriorate if you don’t “cleanse.” No one offered any evidence that “detoxification” improves human health. No one tried to identify any of the alleged toxins or show that they are actually removed. No one tried to provide any rationale for the particular combination of ingredients in Isagenix products (242 of them!). No one questioned my assertion that “no caffeine added” was inaccurate because green tea was added and it contains caffeine. No one commented on my observation that the amount of vitamin A in the products was dangerous and went against the recommendations of The Medical Letter. No one offered any evidence that more weight was lost by adding Isagenix to a low calorie diet and exercise. I offered some alternative explanations that might account for people believing it was effective when it wasn’t; no one commented on that. The medical advisor on the Isagenix website argued that at $5 a day Isagenix is less expensive than open heart surgery. I pointed out that that was a laughable false dichotomy: it’s not a matter of choosing between open heart surgery and diet supplements. No one commented on that. Instead of rational responses, we got …
I’ve been eating a whole food plant based diet for 3 months – no pre-packaged stuff, no Gluten, no refined sugar, no dairy ( although I do allow myself the odd bit of seafood, as it sits very well with my stomach ) and I’ve never felt better. I’d eat dirt before I ever started eating some “meal-replacement” shake. Meals shouldn’t need to be replaced if you’re preparing them correctly.
Raw nuts and seeds provide healthy fats and protein. Dried beans and legumes, such as lentils and chickpeas, provide protein and phytonutrients. Brown rice, quinoa, teff and millet are whole grains that you can find in the bulk bins at health-food stores and in some grocery chains. The fiber in the whole grains and produce will help keep you full and helps regulate your digestive tract.
Dinner? That's miso soup with some chopped sea vegetables (like the Japanese nori, used to make sushi) snipped over top. Or you might choose a cup of brown rice with a few chopped vegetables mixed in. "Brown rice gives your body plenty of B vitamins, which is a stress reducer. It's very high fiber, will fill you up, will help you sleep, and will flush you out in the morning."

I understand that you sell Isagenix and have no nutritional knowledge, but canola oil is one of the most toxic oils on the market. This is a fact, and anyone who disagrees with this literally knows nothing about nutrition. Not only is canola oil one of the most highly genetically modified crops, it undergoes a ton of processing to be made into an oil, including being extracted with hexane – a neurotoxin. You’re right about it being high in polyunsaturated fat – though I don’t know why you would tout this as a good thing when PUFAs are the exact fats that cause heart disease and inflammation.
You speak specifically about Calcium D Pantothenate. This is also referred to as vitamin B-5 or pantothenic acid, is an essential nutrient your body uses to generate energy by breaking down carbohydrates and fats. Adults should consume at least 5 mg of calcium D-pantothenate each day to maintain a healthy body, according to the University of Maryland Medical Center. If you have trouble getting enough of this B-5 vitamin from your diet, your doctor may recommend treatment with a calcium D-pantothenate supplement.
I suppose it all comes down to saying that, yeah, the Hyundai isn’t as good as the BMW,… but anyone who can afford a BMW wouldn’t buy a Hyundai. So, if the net result is a better, safer vehicle with a better warranty, and an emotionally happier driver, who is easier to be around, happier in her life, and thus less self-destructively addicted to comfort food, then I say “yay.”

I find the Isagenix review accurate regarding ingredients of Isagenix. It seems in multiple blogs/article comments that those who sell products for profit become overly defensive/angry if you do not agree. Working in the health care field as an RN, I have met a multitude of people from different educational levels and cultural backgrounds. You acknowledge their beliefs and propose other options that have scientifically proven facts that actually prove what you tell them. There is no valid scientific studies on Isagenix. Truthful products do not necessitate rude, offensive, threatening, disparaging remarks, etc. be made at anyone who does not agree. The products speak for their self –just as natural healthy foods do. When I read angry and emotional comments made at someone who does not agree with a product reviewer, I know they would not be so upset if the product they sold or used was valid.

I will tell you that the science behind the system is rock solid. Everything is based on clinically proven science. Clinically proven science is also NOT fixed… it is fluid and ever changing so adaptation is important. What we are taught now in schools is 15-20 years behind current research… it’s the nature of our educational system. It takes time for information to flow down to the classroom level… and not just in nutrition.
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.

When you decide to “go on a diet,” you’re making the conscious decision that this is a temporary choice. You’re going to go on it, but that means that you’re going to one day—probably sooner than you expect—go off it. That’s the concept of weight cycling (also known as yo-yo dieting), and it’s extremely unhealthy. A 2014 study in the journal Diabetes Care found that a pattern of weight cycling—losing at least five pounds and then gaining it back within two years—resulted in as much as a 33 percent higher risk of diabetes and higher blood pressure.
Dani, You are 100% correct about your research. I am an EX Isagenix cult member. I, thankfully, escaped only losing one body organ to this product (my gallbladder). Thank you for all the information you are providing. You have to know sweetie that Isagenix has watch dogs all over the internet to lash out at any naysayers and they even go as far as having negative comments and reviews removed/hidden.

This 9-day cleanse really lasts for 11 days. The first two days are “shake” days, which is a combination of drinking a shake for breakfast, eating a light, low-glycemic lunch, and drinking a shake for dinner. And in between you can eat Isagenix Snacks, which remind me of my dog’s vitamins, but actually have proven to be quite tasty. (But who knows, maybe I only liked the taste because I had forgotten what good food tastes like), drink lots of water, and take capsules that are meant to speed up your metabolism and give you energy.


“Most people only absorb 8% to 12% of what we eat – the rest is waste which we flush down the toilet. With Isagenix we can absorb up to 94% of what is ingested with less waste going down the toilet. Isagenix is full of good probiotics which help rebuild our digestive systems, fights candida. Isagenix also helps the body become alkaline, which is a healthy body. John Hopkins 2008 Cancer Report stated that cancer cannot live in an alkaline body only acidic bodies. Processed food makes our bodies acidic — thus the epedemic [sic] of cancer and diabites [sic] in the USA along with heart disease.” [This is all nonsense.]
Dani, you like in your references above to Sunflower oil which is high in omega 6 fatty acids. Isagenix uses “high-oleic sunflower oil” along with cold processed olive oil and alpha-linolenic acid from flax seeds as the main sources of fats. Consumptions of which has been linked with better control of blood pressure and heart health. More details at:
During the two years I was involved with Isagenix I did one Isalean shake a day about 5 to 7 days a week, Product B, and Ionix Supreme (mainly an antioxidant drink) – so I never was full on into a “system” – thank God! I was and am in decent to good shape (health) and still buy Product B from a friend (not the same friend that enrolled me – unfortunately she stopped being my friend when I had a sit down discussion with her and showed her all that I had found through my research) because it involves telomere support and I think the potential in that area could be great. I, personally, never felt “amazing” while taking the Isagenix products but didn’t feel bad either. Isagenix people will say I could have felt “amazing” if I took their products in the “system” they were created for but that was too expensive for something I didn’t whole-heartedly believe in anyway.
"The term 'detox' has become a buzzword that is often misused by the media and consumers," says Jackie Armstrong, MPH, RDN, EP-C. Jackie is a Performance & Wellness Nutritionist at Stanford University and the founder of Well-Fueled.com. She says that detox diets are often misunderstood. "Our organs and tissues are constantly in a state of detoxification — getting rid of unwanted substances produced by the body or from our environment." She goes on to explain that research is lacking to support the effectiveness of most detox diets.
Instead of using Isagenix products whether it is for weight loss or for muscle gain or energy & performance, what would you recommend to be a healthier option or diet to begin with, just say to feel more energised? I myself have gone to incredible lengths to gain more energy and still haven’t been able to find an answer. Whether its changing what foods i eat (carbs/fats) or keeping hydrated by drinking up to 1 gallon (3.785ltr) of high alkalised (9.5PH to be exact) water per day or getting more sleep. I am a pro. footballer from Australia and still being quite young, my aim and dream to play overseas has never been higher. I came across your blog as i am just about to get started on Isagenix and i wanted to add a little more research to gain a better understanding about the product because to be quite honest, i am unsure as to how all of their products will effect my body/health. I have spoken with plenty of health professionals about what foods i should be eating, when i should eat them, all the where’s and how’s and to be honest, I’m sick of wasting my time/money going around in circles not finding any results. I have also done a bit of research by myself (not a lot or else i would probably be as qualified as you are haha) and still no luck. How can i find what will work and be beneficial for me, with out “trialling” products for 30 days and “hoping” it will be right? To put it straight, i am sick of this trial and error BS and honestly would love to know something, anything that will help assist my performance playing football and feeling more energised. If there is any chance you are able to provide any websites that I can take a look at, that would be incredibly helpful not only to myself, but to everyone reading through your blog as it would give a number of different, healthier alternatives but very similar results.
I give the shakes to my kids and of course they also eat plenty of real food. My daughter who has always been small and had asthma and chest colds has stopped getting sick and shot up in the last few months. We were eating an organic, whole food diet before we started Isagenix. I took a very long time to sign on because of the fact that it IS a network marketing company and I am very well-versed in nutrition and supplementation. (Incidentally, I think it is INSANE to think that you can live in this toxic world and be able to effectively detox and fill your nutritional needs without SOME sort of vitamin or mineral supplementation, whether it be through soaking in salts or imbibing) We were using ALL of the holistic tricks and we were still getting sick on a regular basis. Since being on isagenix I have noticed that it has fixed a long-time hormonal balance that I was suffering from–which was making my periods really rough. I also feel as if sickness cannot get a hold in my body. In addition to that, I have had all of the other benefits you would expect taking high-quality supplements. I am happier, sleeping better, have more energy etc. In the interest of full-disclosure, I am “selling” the product. I have helped a number of people get better from-long term illness as well as lose weight with this line.

Secondly, I find it interesting that it is mentioned several times about the gluten and soy – the shakes don’t have soy in them. There are a few products now that have gluten however the shakes don’t. I am gluten intolerant as well and have major reactions when even a bread crumb touches something i eat. I have been using the product for about 8 months after being on a completely organic diet where my body could only eat sweet potatoes, avocado and organic vegetable soup. I was anorexic, malnutritioned and exhausted all the time. I wanted to give up before I was introduced to the isagenix product line. I had done so much damage to my body that even my brain was affected. I had a hard time holding conversations and my focus was gone.
Toxic overload is an often-overlooked factor in obesity, and the right detoxification plan can provide the nutrients your body requires to help you heal and lose weight. While these strategies are a powerfully effective starting point, a chiropractor or other healthcare professional can help you design a custom-tailored detoxification plan based on your individual needs.
So today she finally decided I needed to try her gross cleanse drink. She literally poured me the smallest sip possible and I drank it. I have felt like absolute shit since then and thrown up once. ONE SIP I'm all for being healthy but that is not healthy. Who knows what that shit really is. Pretending something is getting rid of toxins because you're throwing up and feel like shit is ridiculos.
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.

The Drinking Detox. If you're not ready to change what you eat, you might start by changing what you drink. Many experts (and smart dieters) will tell you that the easiest way to lose weight is to give up alcohol either permanently or for a short time. Booze provides no significant nutritional benefits, it's full of calories and it may cause you to eat more junk food. For many dieters, simply saying no to alcohol is the best way to detox the body, sleep better at night, boost energy levels, and slim down.
Anyway, I wondered what your thoughts were about the effects on your metabolism from going on those cleanse days. You can do the cleanse days either one day a week through the month or they highly recommend doing two days back-to-back. When I had talked about what I was doing with a friend they were concerned about the possible effects on my metabolism. Even the super gung-ho supporters of Isagenix admit to gaining pounds back right after a cleanse despite losing weight during the cleanse. I know you mostly focused on the ingredients, but I wondered if you had any thoughts about how this might effect metabolism?

Sorry Laura but Isagenix funded that study how is that 3 rd party? I am a Isagenix distributor.I say thanks for the article Dani. Trying to counter Dani’s articles with Isagenix articles is embarrassing. Right now you can go to Hight Fructose.com or whatever and they’ll tell you it’s great. If folks want to continue using and selling Isa then go ahead. Just don’t bash Dani’s work. It’s obvious she is bringing 100% facts to the table. The person earlier that called Dani a fool, once again embarrassing. I will most likely continue using Isa for now. Thanks Dani for some eye opening information.


Hi! Very interesting blog post and comments section. I was given Isagenix by my sister and am currently on Day 4 of a 2 week “cleanse”. Prior to her giving it to me, I told her that I was wary of the product because I could not find any research supporting Isagenix that was not influenced or purchased by the company itself. That’s odd, especially for such a large company with so many supporters and testimonies. Despite my hesitation, I agreed to try it. I am obese and have been having trouble with sleep apnea, shortness of breath, and heart palpitations. My typical weekly diet included regular doses of fast food, pizza and at least 2 liters of fit soda per day. Frankly, I believe that Isagenix DOES contain things that are unhealthy. However, it is likely that they are less unhealthy than the disgusting things I was already consuming everyday. My plan is not to use Isagenix for life. I can see why people do, though. It’s a matter of convenience (and for some, a matter of pride). I am using this period to move from being completely unhealthy to embracing real foods again. There’s something about two shakes a day and a 48 hour no-solid-food period that just makes you appreciate something simple and natural like a sweet potato. (Please please please don’t tell me sweet potatoes are bad for me. I just fell in love with them.) I fully intend to return to a life of real food, which I believe does have everything we need to be healthy and thrive. I just needed a way to “reset”, to start the change I know my life needs.

Secondly, I find it interesting that it is mentioned several times about the gluten and soy – the shakes don’t have soy in them. There are a few products now that have gluten however the shakes don’t. I am gluten intolerant as well and have major reactions when even a bread crumb touches something i eat. I have been using the product for about 8 months after being on a completely organic diet where my body could only eat sweet potatoes, avocado and organic vegetable soup.

I had done so much damage to my body that even my brain was affected. I had a hard time holding conversations and my focus was gone.


Even if you’re happy with your current weight, or finding success with your current diet plan, it can make sense to do a cleanse from time to time. Here’s why: Fast results help lead to long-term weight loss. Slow and steady is the best way to reach any personal goal, but sometimes the slow undermines the steady. A review of studies published in The New England Journal of Medicine found that those who realized rapid results were more likely to stick to their weight-loss program over time than those who saw results come more slowly. This 7-day cleanse can improve your chances of long-term adherence to a healthy weight-loss plan.

I was recently sent this article/blog/discussion by a patient. I get hundreds of “Dr. Google” articles sent to me to evaluate and frankly, I evaluate products and supplement/diet systems for a living from a physician’s and nutrition and medicine perspective. Old companies (GNC, Vitamin Shoppe/ Hebalife/Shaklee/4Life/Usana/Nuskin, etc) and new companies/products (IDLife/SilverWolf, etc) and all the “new and improved products” each produce. They all have commonalities: Most products are not new, just recombined and renamed. No one can distinguish the sourcing of ingredients just by reading the label, and it is very difficult for the consumer, let alone the self described online blogger experts to distinguish and evaluate the science and science officers of each company and product.
