I’m a CrossFit coach and as well as training lots of people on a daily basis, I often get alot of questions about nutrition. At our gym we encourage people not to eat any processed foods almost a paleo diet but never push it on them. When we get a few ladies that want to lose weight they seem to want to jump on the Isagenix wagon, for what seems a quick fix, rather than eating clean and training hard, so I decided to look into it a bit and asked a few reps a few questions.


“The danger is NOT this blogger but people like you who doubt anyone who is willing and able to challenge the notion that big business and commercial enterprises in agriculture are not causing mahem and risks to the health of consumers by nefarious food processing and food additive practices. Consumers have been too used to just trusting manufacturers and not questioning what goes in to the food and other products we eat.”
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.
I wrote this Isagenix review because I do not want you to fall for meal replacement shakes, for protein bars, or otherwise gimmicky foods. These companies produce cheap, toxic products and push them off on people as healthy alternatives (to what exactly I’m not sure). Instead, watch my video on how to make a protein shake that is not only unprocessed but actually good for you.
I have been reading most of what has been published here … not all because WOW is there a ton of comments … talk about advertising, this could be taken and taught as a Master Class in Marketing … Anyway, I just wanted to make ONE THING PERFECTLY CLEAR and I will be brief and not include links or anything of the like. Anyone who has a Professional Degree, Certification, a Doctor, Scientist etc. CANNOT make false claims … cannot report product ingredients that DONT exist. They simply cannot make reports, claims or put ANYTHING in WRITING that has not been validated or proven by a governing body – ESPECIALLY FOOD; and food that is allowed to be sold to the general public. They will stand to lose their careers, reputation, business, livelihood (and I’m sure most of these professionals do not want to lose their livelihood) … that said, it is profoundly irrelevant if Isagenix Sponsors a study or not … the Doctor or Scientist who puts his/her name to it will be held accountable if their reporting is inaccurate – this is not arguable. And for those of you who will say that they just get paid off to report whatever the Company in questions asks them to do – I’m sure I will also see you rallying at the next UFO pick-up point, or stocking your fallout shelter for the coming “End of Days” ushered forth by the “One World Government.” So, while I like some of the points you make Dani, you cannot deflate and set aside information because it came from the Isagenix website or further, you cannot discredit any information source because it comes from the producer of the product (let me be clear, I am speaking only for the the FOOD WORLD here – not Spiderman toys, or toothbrush makers) – do you really believe that the world, the government, will allow just any LARGE organization to produce whatever FOODS they want, however they want to, without any organized, highly educated Governing Body to be held accountable to? Just to make money? If so, then see you at the rally.

The Code of Federal Regulations defines a natural flavor as “the essential oil, oleoresin, essence or extractive, protein hydrolysate, distillate, or any product of roasting, heating or enzymolysis, which contains the flavoring constituents derived from a spice, fruit or fruit juice, vegetable or vegetable juice, edible yeast, herb, bark, bud, root, leaf or similar plant material, meat, seafood, poultry, eggs, dairy products, or fermentation products thereof, whose significant function in food is flavoring rather than nutritional”. Artificial flavors are defined as those that do not meet these particular standards.

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…
I am not entirely against making money from your knowledge. I’ve been giving it away for free for years. My personal pleasure or pay has been seeing others lives change as a result. All I want in return is to see some of the same great results. I guess that is why the rep who told me about Isagenix offered to actually pay for my first months supply. Don’t mean to toot my own horn, but I can be pretty persuasive when I really believe in something:) But I personally believe that knowledge is healing. Been through a lot medically, have many witnesses and they know when I find something the works or helps, they too will benefit. That is why I am so anxious to learn more and apply a scientific approach to analyzing it.
I’m on a mission to do my own before and after pics – which will involve eating healthy foods and exercising to prove to people that you don’t need a ‘wonder product’ to look great, nor do you need to pay anything other than a normal grocery shop to achieve it. I’ve always been slim thanks to regular exercise and involvement in sport but I’m keen to prove to people that if I want to get great abs I can increase my exercise and reduce my carb intake.
Debate provides a platform informed choice – in the spirit of increased knowledge and insight – thank you for this blog. We are all doing the best we can – for our bodies for our future 🙂 This program works for me – I am not an evangelist – as it may not be for you – but it just might be a better option than what people choose now – with obesity as an epidemic – I would suggest its the mainstream consumption habits of the western world that require a sprinkling of this education contained within this blog.

It’s an interesting point about manipulating information to prove your point when money is involved. This point applies equally to people that might perceive a system like Isagenix as being in competition with their services as a Holistic Health Coach. When, instead it could be used as a complementary tool, that could be used in conjunction with eating whole organic foods, to help people change their lifestyle and get the results they are looking for.


I had to stop reading this at they don’t use synthetic vitamins…Really? What is Cyanocobalamin B12 then? So either your company just lies….or they just lie! It is the cheapest and worse form of B12. Come on take the emotion out of this. People buy into a company because they either want it to be their path to riches or they really believe the info being told to them. I get it! Once you think about it and remove yourself from their story you will find the truth. I wont promote the company I support in our clinic due to how crazy people get but I will suggest you DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH with an open mind!

“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!
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.
He mentions them in order and explains each one – very well – very well done. He ACTUALLY did the research – you obviously didn’t – just spouted off ingredients that you decided were unhealthy and wrote of the product and the company on that basis – doing many people who would other wise be helped by Isagenix a disservice – and therefore a disservice to others that might otherwise be helped gain their health and life back through Isagenix ….
Wow, what do have against a good diet exactly? These products offer a legitimate quick fix for very sick, very lazy, very broke and very desperate and also very sales-orientated people (network marketing scheme) It works for them but for others who lead a normal life , earn an income and eat well and exercise, they can be unhealthy and unnecessary products. Only internet trolls (so many in this blog – named) would stoop to calling people evil, when they are presenting factual information. Who care if Dani charges for health advice? That doesn’t change the fact that she is correct about some of the ingredients you twirp. Just because you were nearly dead does not mean it’s good for everyone!!! Get some real scientific knowledge. You were nearly dead remember – gotta ask yourself why !!! Keep up the good honest approach Dani…..dont worry about the trolls on this blog. They all deserve a lot worse, given the problems they cause
Commending you on writing frankly about a product which has “sacred cow” status with so many who want any way to be healthy that allows them to avoid work and learning about real food. I have a friend who uses this (she hates to cook and wants to know nothing about the subject). I had to go through several google search screens to find an article that wasn’t either directly selling or touting the sale of the product. It’s brave of you are because people who are having their pet delusions questioned are not generally likely to respond with sane remarks. I learned the hard way that health doesn’t come off a factory manufacturing line.

Oh Boy, I am reading all this information about how ISAGENIX product is bad for you because of some ingredients and is wondering why is isagenix helping me. I am a cancel survivor and had developed allergies, joint pain, was tired and wipeout out. I am not an obese person and always eat healthy but yet have these problems. I used natural product to help my allergies and joint pain and it never work. Since I am using Isagenix, my allgeriies and joint pain are ALL GONE!!!. I am actually enjoying being outside again. I have so much energy and I feel my life is back. Fact is ISAGENIX WORKS FOR ME.
The non-GMO soy lecithin found in IsaLean Shake is ultra-purified so it’s free of any proteins or contaminants. Soy lecithin doesn’t contribute any amount of soy protein (so it is hypoallergenic) and it doesn’t contribute any soy isoflavones (which are phytoestrogens). These are eliminated through purification and should not present a concern to those needing to avoid them.

Promoting a fundamental misunderstanding of chemistry and nutrition is dangerous, yes. You are just appealing to a different nutriotion religion and draw uneccessary distinctions. There is nothing that indicates “organic” is better than GMO. In fact all the organic products you eat were just genetically modified over hundreds of years by humans through selective breeding.
I’m now using Isagenix, and have never seen the results I’ve experienced with anything else I’ve done. Did the ingredient list make me pause a bit? Absolutely. I get your problem with the ingredients. But you know what? My bloodwork has completely turned around, fat is burning off while lean muscle is building up, I have more energy, stamina, and drive than I’ve ever had before.

Anyway, I saw someone that I knew was saying they had good results and had lost a lot of weight in a short amount of time, so I wanted to know what they were using. That person connected me with their rep/coach who sent me a link to watch a video, and the rep gave me a call (sorry I am using all kind of incorrect pronouns – just trying to respect their anonymity). The rep mentioned a food package and I immediately thought about nutri-system with the prepackaged meals, but I learned that basically the food is supplements, bars, wafers, etc.
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.
