This all reminds me of when Scam-way came out. Oops… I mean Amway. My girlfriend (at the time) was selling that garbage and I remember her telling me, “Tim, I was thinking about you today and thought of something that can help you save money.” Proceeded to hand me samples (the old reciprocity sales tactic). Those scammers have everything thought up down to the “script” she read to me. Eventually I read and saw all of the junk about emerald island blah blah blah. Fast forward it’s the same hustle different product different people in same cases.
**While Isagenix is not verified GMO-free in the US, it is in Australia and New Zealand. They do say they do not use any GMO products. Though considering they do use soy, corn, and canola, which are over 90% genetically modified, I am suspicious. Consider that there isn’t even approval for GM wheat and it was found growing in Oregon, then consider that over 90% of these crops are GM and often cross-contaminated with non-GM crops.
The federal regulations that define the term natural flavors and enforce its correct use ensure that it’s used appropriately by manufacturing companies, and not as a way to hide ingredients that might be considered unhealthy. By listing flavoring compounds as natural flavors, consumers are being told what they do (impart flavor), while also making labels appear simpler and less cluttered. In addition, using natural flavors on labels helps to prevent competing manufacturers from creating copy-cat versions of products.
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.
You’ve obviously never tried it. You can spout off all the random information you want, but Isagenix makes me FEEL better than anything I’ve ever eaten. Something unhealthy could never make me feel this good. I’ve eaten whole, unprocessed, healthy foods my whole life, but my health completely turned around when I started adding Isagenix into the mix. Haters gonna hate, but you will NEVER, EVER convince me that Isagenix is unhealthy. It is the best thing I have ever done for myself. Cheers!
