Isagenix Cleanse for Life is a complete body cleanse drink that helps the body to naturally remove impurities from itself. It is a natural way to cleanse your body of toxins that you’re exposed to everyday.

Cleanse for life is available in both liquid and powder form for your convenience.

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.
If you want to lose weight, eat less than you burn, full stop. Learn to cook and eat stuff you make yourself. Don’t waste your money on organic either, as if anything the anti-GMO movement is even scammier than Isagenix. Teach yourself enough biology and chemistry to understand why these are scams. And most of all, accept that successful weight loss takes time. It’s a long-term project; don’t rush it, or buy into shortcuts.
It started with a bite-sized cookie. A sip of beer. A handful of chips. You promised yourself today would be different. And you were doing so well! But that was days ago. And now it’s days later and you’re in the same sorry state: groggy, bloated and (at least) 5 pounds heavier than you were before you caved to that first cookie. Now what? Before you launch into a new regime, kickstart your weight loss with the easiest 24-hour cleanse of your life. These simple, by-the-hour Eat This, Not That! detox tips will help you beat the bloat, boost your metabolism and exceed your weight loss goals without having to do a full-blown juice cleanse. And melt fat in just seven days on The 7-Day Flat-Belly Tea Cleanse! Test panelists lost up to 10 pounds in one week!
Do your research and make your own decisions. Recently, a peer reviewed jounral article was released which was also funded by industry,(Isagenix) so there couldn’t possibly be any bias (insert sarcasm). Results did show the groups lost a significant amount of weight, but if you look at the weight loss in relationship to total kcals taken in on a daily basis (1000-1200) of course they will lose weigth! DUH!!!! I would be surprised if Isagenix used this study to solidify the use of their products.
I am a certified holistic health coach. I do sell the products because I have done my research and have personally used them. I have coached dozens to reach their goals, in a healthy way. I believe in the products but know that they aren’t for everyone. I don’t even take offense to your opinion which is just that. I do however, take offense to your responses. I think you do not represent our profession well; in fact I am embarrassed. As you are entitled to your opinion based on what you have studied and believe, so should everyone be given the same respect. You have shown none to the pro isagenix people and tons to the people that agree with you. I do not think you are 100% correct with the information you have provided, but I am not going to try to change your mind. I wish you well and hope that you become a better “coach”. I would never want to utilize your services based on how you speak to others. It’s not very proactive nor helpful. Best!
1. Millions of people on countries throughout the world have experienced profound reversals in the steady decline of their health due to the Isalean shakes. This is factual. There are, to date, no recorded cases of long-term users of the products experiencing a decline in their health. So, how can this be if the shakes contain toxic, rancid or other ingredients that are dangerous to one’s health? Here is the answer: Most people who reach for Isagenix as a system of overall health, weight loss, detoxification, etc., are people who have been addicted to simple carbohydrates, fast food, and the “typical” American diet, which as we know is way more toxic and carcinogenic than Isagenix. Most users of the product lose weight, and experience a dec rease in their CRPs, and other inflammation markers because the products are *replacing* frozen dinners, grab’n’go meals and snacks, vending machine “food,” and just about anything that can be purchased in a drive-through. While a micro- and macro-nutrient balanced, whole, organic food diet is by far a better option than any processed or fabricated meal replacement, the sad truth is that virtually every user of an Isagenix shake is incapable (for whatever reason, i.e., socioeconomic status, lack of understanding of food choices, peer pressure, lack of portability, etc.) of doing “better” than they have been — until they are told to simply consume 2 scoops of this powder twice a day. What I have seen, time and again, is constant improvement in health…and even the elimination of debilitating physical and emotional symptoms….when a person adhere’s to the Isagenix shakes, the cleanse liquid, and one meal per day of whole, preferably organic, macronutrient balanced foods. What I have seen, time and again, is that overweight people were consuming 1000s of empty calories of literally toxic food, yet were malnourished! Vitamin and mineral deficient, with leaky gut syndrome and the full gamut of dysbiosis-related syndromes and conditions.

You said you called Isagenix and asked if they were certified Organic and when you were told “No” you didn’t bother to investigate further or get any other question answered, like your question about ingredients. It’s not that Isagenix choose not to certify their products, it’s that they can not even start the process because there is no organic certification available for some of the ingredients used in the products. That does not mean they are below organic standards. In fact, the Isagenix shakes, that contain Grade 7 Whey Protein (the highest grade possible), actually exceed US Organic Standards.

Lastly, length of time in this industry does not mean you know about nutrition (or maybe you do and still sell Isagenix for financial benefit). “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.” So the average person can afford to spend hundreds of dollars a month on these products full of synthetic vitamins that can’t be absorbed? That doesn’t even make sense.


I cheated, and I hate myself for it. I drank a half a cup of a chai latte with skim milk. (I can’t even believe I’m saying this.) Rewind two weeks ago, and I was drinking grande-white-chocolate-mochas-with-whole-milk-and-whipped-cream on the daily; sometimes even twice a day if I wanted a sugar high mid-afternoon. The culprit on day 7: an outing with my friend, Stephanie. You can have green tea on these cleanses, but the café we went to didn’t have such a thing. I drank the chai latte reluctantly, guilt-ridden, and hurting (mentally) later. I felt like I had failed. No will power here.
Also, (to address some other points that came up from my observations), when I attended one of Isagenix’s conventions last year, the founders were clear to point out to the audience of 10,000 that their products were not intended to be a substitute for whole foods. With my own research into nutrition, I know very well, that as important and good advice as that is, with the severe mineral depletion of our soils through chemical contamination, a certain amount of supplementation is necessary, due to lack of complete nutrients from those whole foods. The other thing I was impressed with was Mr. Anderson pointing out how they spend one million $ a year on testing to ensure there are no contaminants in any of their products. Then, Dr. Andrews, pointing out how he was approached by numerous other MLMs (like them or not) and related how none of them had the integrity that Isagenix has and that’s why he chose them to help formulate Product B based on his scientific discoveries for anti-aging. Hope this is helpful.
So your solution is for people to believe that eating wholefoods is the best solution? Wholefoods that are grown from nutrient deficient soil? Organic or not, an apple is an apple there is no difference in the presence of nutrients in either, and both are shown to be nutrient deficient compared to an apple of the 1960’s. Many, many Americans like myself have eaten organic, wholefoods, (gluten, dairy, soy and peanut free diets) for a long time and it made no difference in my health. Why? Because it is the nutrients our wholefoods are lacking that is causing America’s health crisis. It wasn’t until I supplemented my wholefood diet with herbs, minerals and other items that were harvested from the earth but packaged for me that my body and health transformed. The average American is sitting on the couch eating a bag of Doritos not at Trader Joes picking out a head of organic lettuce, so I don’t see the problem with a company offering a better solution for them. My point, a wholefood diet is not enough anymore, maybe in the 1950’s but time and soil has changed.
Still freaking out… My mental turmoil led me to a Facebook group of other Isagenix cleansers for support—some of whom started their cleanses on the same day as my fiancé and I, while most were people who go on cleanses repeatedly. (Wait, people do this more than once?) Apparently, some even do it for 30 days at a time. I don’t think I’m quite that dedicated to my body or nutritional well-being. I'm happy to report I've lost 5 pounds so far (my fiance lost 12!).
I’ve been enjoying this discourse, its nice if we can stick to logic, but I feel that various people are getting emotional on this issue. Just curious where you have the idea that ALL vegetable oils are inflammatory? At what point? Due to what? There are practically centuries recorded use of olive oil…what part makes it unhealthy?? Is not moderation the key? What makes soybean oil rancid and bad?
It’s important to be well educated about products on the market. It’s also important to know the source. Dani I commend you for the way you have chosen to earn a living by writing a blog and reviewing products, and being compensated for it. I’m sure if Isagenix were into paying people to write blogs on them, the tone would change. Several other shakes on the market do not have research behind them, are soy based protein which is bad for you and isn’t even considered to be a full meal replacement due to the amount of protein in it.
Kale is high in fiber, phytochemicals, and protein. It helps reduce cholesterol and prevents breast, ovarian, colon, bladder, and prostate cancers. Due to the presence of kaempferol and quercetin, kale is a superb antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent. It has also been found to help in the reduction of body fat and the maintenance of good cardiovascular health (18).
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this post! You articulated exactly how I feel about the entire Isagenix cult. I have some friends that are into it and they keep pushing. It really makes me sad that so many people believe that “food-like products” created in a lab can be healthier than real, whole, organic non-GMO foods prepared in your own kitchen. Just truly sad…
Each day, we’re surrounded by numerous pollutants in our environment. Whether it is the food that we consume (most of which contains genetically-modified organisms), the water that we drink, or even the things that we touch, we’re sure to be contaminated somehow. This can be pretty harmful and it can take a huge toll on our bodies; especially internally. With Nutritional Cleansing, you can cure these interior pollutions by purifying the body and removing those unwanted toxins that we’re exposed to so often. What’s great about Nutritional Cleansing is that it’s a win-win: it gives your body the opportunity to rejuvenate and regenerate while also nourishing your body with nutritional products, thus helping your long-term health and wellness to prosper.

Many of the commenters seemed to think that doctors know nothing about nutrition. Doctors just put bandages on problems: they sell pills that mask symptoms and wreak havoc on your body instead of treating underlying causes. They only want to make money. They want to keep people sick so they won't lose their kickbacks. [What kickbacks?] There are lots of malpractice suits.
Take Cleanse for Life daily as part of a balanced diet to promote better health or use it as part of a one- or two-day intermittent fasting deep cleanse for additional benefits. Cleanse for Life should be used as part of an Isagenix System for maximum results. For Daily cleansing, take 2 ounces  twice daily. Enjoy warm or cold. For a deeper, one- or two-day cleanse, take 4 ounces four times throughout the day. Follow with 8 ounces of water. Enjoy warm or cold. Cleansing is most effective with a combination of both daily and deep cleanses.
Dani, thank you for posting such a well-researched article, and I’m sorry that the Isagenix lemmings jumped on you for exposing the truth. Posting ingredients right off their websites is not false information, unless the website is a liar itself. Isagenix is GMO free in SOME COUNTRIES but it has NOT been officially verified as GMO-free for the US. Also, they are not certified organic and by reading the ingredient list it is pretty obvious why. The ingredients don’t lie. For those that are arguing should take a REAL nutrition class. Did you know that Isagenix is calling their representatives “health and wellness coaches”? However, they don’t offer any nutritional coaching, just promote the Isagenix products. It’s absolutely despicable.
It’s working out great! Let me guess… you’re on that “nutrients in food have been depleted” bandwagon???? While soil is generally less rich in minerals than it used to be, it is not a problem for us when consuming fruits and vegetables. They still have lots of vitamins in them and are very good for us! Eat good food, take a simple multi-vitamin, and you will get all the nutrients you need. Still no crappy shakes necessary! 

BTW, my husband and I tried for 3 years to get pregnant (after our first) , and in this time, I spent some of it using Isagenix. After I couldn’t afford the products anymore and starting eating more healthy food, my husband and I are expecting our 2nd child! 😀 Also wanted to mention that I did gain some of the weight I had lost back, after I stopped using the products, so for those of you on Isagenix, just know that when you quit, you might gain some or most of your weight back. Severely cutting back calories and limiting what you eat is not the way to lose weight. Temporarily, yes, but not for life.

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.


I read your blog and I agree with you on a lot of what you stated. However, sometimes to prove your point it seems that you leave out info from both sides of the argument. For example, I am allergic to onions, uncooked onions!! Crazy I know but I won’t go around telling people that they should not eat it and that all of it is bad all of the time for everyone. Gluten has been around forever even before the environment became so polluted. If you study history and archaeology research shows that people who were suffering from simple allergies were mistreated or misdiagnosed; which ultimately lead to premature deaths.

“A small amount of fructose, such as the amount found in most vegetables and fruits, is not a bad thing. In fact, there is evidence that a little bit may help your body process glucose properly. However, consuming too much fructose at once seems to overwhelm the body’s capacity to process it. The diets of our ancestors contained only very small amounts of fructose. These days, estimates are that about 10% of the modern diet comes from fructose.

Insulin sensitivity—how well insulin does its job of ushering glucose in the blood (after eating food) into the appropriate body tissues where it is used for energy—also looks to be “reset” by fasting. One study showed that healthy men who fasted for 20 hours every other day for 15 days had increased rates of glucose uptake, signifying improved insulin sensitivity and better blood sugar control (4).
It is to bad Dani, for such an educated researcher you pinpointed a couple of ingredients which are in just about everything, and you used that to bash a company you obviously have no idea about…just some website information…there are 11 years of testimonials and scientific evidence backed by Isagenix…you should really further your research on solutions for getting people healthy and teaching them how to stay healthy…nothing is perfect we can only try and work together…if you have not tried something or know anyone who has tried it, how could you talk about it just by reading some information…You are missing out on the best solution in the world…If you really want to know what Isagenix has done for millions over the past 11 years , try it yourself and only then will you become a believer…results and stories do not lie my friend…i love that you are concerned and want to educate people, but make sure you know what you are talking about first…Proud Isagenix user for a long time, a health nut myself and have not found anything close to what this system has done, is doing and will continue to do for people…thank you:)
Thank you, thank you, thank you for this review. It honestly shocks me that people do not ask more questions about the truth behind Isagenix. Having worked with many USDA Organic certified vendors at my past job they ALWAYS provided some kind of documentation about what goes on behind the scenes to create the product they are selling. And when I say provided, its part of their brand to show and be proud of where they are getting their ingredients from. I have a friend who is extremely successful with Isagenix (and I’m happy for her) but she never questioned as to why the only resourceful, amazing information on Isagenix came from the Isagenix website.
The woman who does our billing at the office I work at is all about isagenix. She totally knows "the millionaires" and could get there if she put any more effort into her sales....sure. Why not. I like her so I usually just let her tell me about it and try to change the subject back to ways I'm trying to be healthy myself. When she tells me her black as the night "cleanse" drink gets rid of all the toxins in her body "from like the air and world and stuff" I nod along. "Plus it's only about 3 dollars per meal!". Great lady.
Okay, so you won’t be dining at Waffle House this week. To make the cleanse work for you, you’ll need to make your own dinners for the next seven days, or special order off the menu of your favorite restaurant. Cleanse Dinners consist of protein and vegetables, and healthy fats, but no grains or fruits. A little harsh, but again, it’s only temporary. Metabolism decreases up to 35% during sleep, so any extra carbs in your system at bedtime are more likely to get stored as fat. Grains and fruit are the main carb sources in our diets, so I’m stripping them out at dinnertime for the next seven days.
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)
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.
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.

Did any of you isagenix believers ever really look at the 1,000 ingredients in the Isalean Shake…. If it’s so nutritionally dense it should be a hell of a lot simpler than words you can’t pronounce… Compare it to a [different scammy MLM product] ingredient list, per say and you’ll see there’s absolutely NO nutritional comparison. Whole, natural, organic foods…the best way to lose it and keep it off…. As a health coach I like knowing what I’m putting in my body!
I met a usually fit bubbly friend from the gym today for a green tea (it’s my fast day so coffee tomorrow) and she is really un well after 6 weeks on Isagenix. She has stopped taking it for a few days and is slowly starting to feel better. Hence why I decided to do some research on this poison. This is not natural it’s in a jar for Christ sake, if you want natural buy whole fruits, vegetables and fresh fish and meats. Take an hour out of your day and prepare and cook beautiful food, sit down with your family and enjoy healthy good food and they weight will drop and you will feel great in no time…and guess what along with the bargain you save money as you aren’t lining other peoples pockets in a pyramid scheme. Wake up!
Funny how you’ve asked this question a dozen times and no one can answer it. I did the same thing on their Facebook page months ago and all anyone could say was that the multi vitamins were all whole food and Isagenix didn’t use anything synthetic. Lie. I was also told that they’re not certified organic because they get products from all over the world, some countries which do not certify. So if that’s the case, label the products with the ingredients that apparently ARE organic. The ingredients you’ve listed are not healthy, I’m sure some of the ingredients are… but seeing as the people consuming these products are most likely coming from a diet of McDonalds – they believe it’s healthy. They should get it right and say it’s healthIER than the crap they used to eat.
Anyway I finally tried isAgenix. Wow. In 30 days I did lose the belly I had been trying to lose for years. I also met other isAgenix users. I met one fellow who lost over 100 lbs.! In my humble opinion isAgenix is an excellent product line. I also do a bit of kinesiology and all the isAgenix products appear to be of excellent quality and are very healthy. (for me anyway)
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.
The company does not even have the GMO free or USDA certifications either, meaning as a consumer I would have to trust their word. Really? And as explained above, certified organic does not make it healthier by any means. Whole Food Markets sales organic canola oil which alone is an oxymoron of a word just like their “responsibly farmed salmon” which is fed with grains pellets (including GMO corn and soy). Funny how the wording make people all feel better. By I digress….I am very happy someone took the time to debunk another company that aims to people wallets and could care less about their health.

Still freaking out… My mental turmoil led me to a Facebook group of other Isagenix cleansers for support—some of whom started their cleanses on the same day as my fiancé and I, while most were people who go on cleanses repeatedly. (Wait, people do this more than once?) Apparently, some even do it for 30 days at a time. I don’t think I’m quite that dedicated to my body or nutritional well-being. I'm happy to report I've lost 5 pounds so far (my fiance lost 12!).
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.
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.
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.
2 things about this article – firstly this blog clearly states that Dani is paid by products to endorse their products which means she is a paid blogger, who gets paid to write about products or write against them. I know because I hire bloggers for a living, it’s a great way to make money but it doesn’t mean they know everything about the nutrition side.

I am compelled to speak about my experience and say I have never been more sick from a self induced decision in my life. Day 3 was complete agony. I could barely get out of bed and the list of symptoms were unlike any flu or sickness I have ever had. Nausea, Headache, dizziness, joint pain, muscle cramps, shooting pains in my legs, incredible stomach pain, fatigue, terrible chills. I have been a zombie for the last 2 days and barely on day 4 (today) at 50%. I stopped the madness last night.
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.
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.
When you challenge a way people think and what they have been led to believe their entire life, it scares them to think they’ve been lied to (medical field, food manufacturers–I mean, really? If the food has been manufactured and made in a factory, how CAN that be REAL food?, people and corporations and chemical companies “out to feed the world and raise more food”–how is that working out for us, when we have people literally starving all over the world?). The whole concept of everything people have been told, taught, and have done their entire life isn’t necessarily the right or correct thing to be doing.
If I knew nothing more about Isagenix than that its proponents are exceedingly defensive, it would be sufficient basis for rejecting the product. However based on your common-sense analysis (I did not need to check your credentials) I know way more than I need to know. Indeed, the most damning evidence you presented was simply the ingredients lists! I remember Michael Pollan writing, if it has more than five ingredients, don’t eat it.
I like to believe the “thinking” person prefers to make informed choices and decisions about what they put into their bodies, or not. So, I can’t comment on the reasons for the choices people make though I do question the validity and reliability of those reasons from a researcher’s perspective. I can share why I found Isagenix appealing (quick easy fix) and equally unappealing. I’m an early adopter of many things, however, when no (proven) independent clinical studies exist to support something, I tend to smell a rat. I know there is anecdotal evidence and millions of photos to support Isagenix. That’s called the perfect marketing strategy.
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
I’m not sure if your brain isn’t properly functioning due to taking Isagenix for almost five years, but the ingredient lists were pulled directly from the Isagenix website and I really don’t appreciate being called a liar. Anyone who has the basic ability to read can see the list of sources I used to provide the ingredient lists. So to say that the ingredient lists are fake (when I clearly provided links for them that go to the Isagenix website) is basically an admission that you know the ingredients are garbage.
