Planning on starting the Isagenix diet? Read this unbiased Isagenix review, in which I take a close look at the Isagenix diet, its side effects and ingredients, and learn whether it’s a safe way to lose weight or just another fad diet.

This Isagenix Review was UPDATED IN DECEMBER 2017 – and it’s even worse than I previously thought

After my post on Herbalife and how unhealthy their products are, I got a lot of questions about Isagenix and whether I could write an Isagenix review. So here we go.

 

What is Isagenix and what does it promise?

The Isagenix diet is a popular weight loss program based on meal replacements. It’s used by dieters worldwide who are looking to drop pounds quickly.

Isagenix’s products promise to help you achieve a healthy weight, be able to train harder and recover faster, age more gracefully and boost overall wellness.

What are the ingredients of Isagenix?

Below are common ingredients found in Isagenix products:

  • rancid vegetable oils
  • gluten
  • soy
  • agave syrup
  • isolated fructose
  • additives
  • corn
  • synthetic vitamins linked to cancer

Below is the ingredient list for the Peanut butter FiberSnack:

Below is the ingredient list for the Slim Cake:

The ingredients in the Isalean chocolate bar:

The ingredients in the Isalean shake:

SYNTHETIC VITAMINS

There are numerous synthetic vitamins in these Isagenix products but the most disturbing is the use of folic acid. I reached out to Isagenix directly and was told,

“Isagenix uses folic acid when it is a supplement or fortified food. When it is a whole food, you will see it listed as folate. Both are derived from natural processes. Please note that we use folic acid, not methylfolate in our products.”

This is false. Folic acid is made in a lab while folate is naturally occurring and found in food. There is a significant and dangerous difference between the two.

Folic acid is incredibly dangerous, especially for those who carry the MTHFR gene mutation – which estimates have shown 50% of the popular carry. People who carry this mutation are entirely unable to convert folic acid to folate (whereas the rest of us are just mostly unable to make this conversion).

In the Journal of the American Medical Association — suggesting that all the extra folic acid might increase your odds of developing cancer. “The more we learn about folic acid, the more it’s clear that giving it to everyone has very real risks,” says folic acid researcher David Smith, Ph.D., a professor of pharmacology at the University of Oxford in England.

Another study out of Chile linked folic acid supplementation with an increased risk of colon cancer.

And yet another study out of Norway linked folic acid supplementation with a 21% increase in lung cancer.

Folic acid and B12 supplementation was associated with a 21% increased risk for cancer, a 38% increased risk for dying from the disease, and an 18% increase in deaths from all causes.

While folate is a necessary part of a balanced diet, folic acid has actually been linked to increased rates of cancer (another source for ya).

CANOLA OIL

Canola oil is one of the most damaging oils on the market today. It is found in most junk foods and is normally used as a frying oil due to its high smoke point. Not only is the majority of canola in the US genetically modified, it is extremely high in omega-6 fatty acids. This causes severe inflammation, especially if ingested regularly.

Here is a video about how this rancid oil is made. This video is ridiculous in so many ways. It starts out by saying that canola oil is the healthiest oil because it contains the lowest amount of saturated fat and has omega-3s, which is wildly untrue.

Then goes on to show how it’s processed – which is absolutely disgusting. I will never be able to understand how anyone thinks that a product (not a food) undergoes this amount of processing and is healthy.

To summarize the video:

The rapeseeds are firstly highly pressurized, forcing out the oil. To extract the remainder of the oil, the canola cakes undergo a 70-minute wash with a “chemical solvent.” This chemical solvent, my friends, is hexane. A neurotoxin.

Then the oil enters the refining phase, in which the oil is washed with sodium hydroxide, aka lye. After this, the oil is clearer but still contains waxes. Then the oil is cooled to 41 degrees to filter out the wax – which is used for vegetable shortening.

After this, the oil is bleached to remove the color, then “sue a steam injection heating process to remove the odor.” It’s heated to extremely high temperatures because the oil is literally rank and smells terrible.

This is a highly refined, rancid product that causes rampant inflammation in the body. You can read more about canola oil from my post on the subject HERE.

SOYBEAN OIL

This study from Harvard found that men consuming the equivalent of one cup of soy milk per day had 50% lower sperm count than men who did not consume soy (even accounting for other factors like age, caffeine and alcohol intake, etc.).

From the study,

There was an inverse association between soy food intake and sperm concentration that remained significant after accounting for age, abstinence time, body mass index, caffeine and alcohol intake and smoking. In the multivariate-adjusted analyses, men in the highest category of soy food intake had 41 million sperm/ml less than men who did not consume soy foods.

Several studies have also linked soy to cancer.

…this pilot study indicates that prolonged consumption of soy protein isolate has a stimulatory effect on the premenopausal female breast, characterized by increased secretion of breast fluid, the appearance of hyperplastic epithelial cells, and elevated levels of plasma estradiol. Source

as well as,

We have demonstrated that the isoflavone, genistein, stimulates growth of estrogen-dependent human breast cancer (MCF-7) cells in vivo…Here we present new information that soy protein isolates containing increasing concentrations of genistein stimulate the growth of estrogen-dependent breast cancer cells in vivo in a dose-dependent manner. Source

LOW HEAT NONFAT DRY MILK

From Butter Believer’s article on skim milk,

Before processing, skim milk has a very unappetizing blueish color, a chalky taste, and watery texture that doesn’t resemble natural milk at all. So, to whiten, thicken, and make it taste a little more normal, powdered milk solids are often mixed into the milk.

What’s so bad about powdered milk? Well, in the manufacturing process, liquid milk is forced through tiny holes at very high pressure, which causes the cholesterol in the milk to oxidize, and toxic nitrates to form.

Oxidized cholesterol contributes to the buildup of plaque in the arteries, while unoxidized cholesterol from unprocessed foods is actually an antioxidant to help fight inflammation in the body. The proteins found in powdered milk are so denatured that they are unrecognizable by the body and contribute to inflammation.

NATURAL FLAVORS

I take issue with anything listed as “natural flavors.” Because chances are, it’s not all that natural. Hell, even monosodium glutamate (MSG) can be masquerading as a natural flavor. The labelling is loosely regulated. In Food Rules: A Doctor’s Guide To Healthy Eating, Dr. Shanahan discusses a study in which 95% of ingredients listed as “natural flavor” contained MSG.

As for “natural” flavor, it could even be secretions from a beaver’s butt. Beavers secrete castoreum, which smells and tastes remarkably similar to vanilla.

Castoreum is a chemical compound that mostly comes from a beaver’s castor sacs, which are located between the pelvis and the base of the tail. Because of its close proximity to the anal glands, castoreum is often a combination of castor gland secretions, anal gland secretions, and urine…Still concerned you’re chowing down on beaver-bum goop? Because of its FDA label, in some cases, manufacturers don’t have to list castoreum on the ingredient list and may instead refer to it as “natural flavoring.” Yum. Source

FRUCTOSE

I am not a fan of fructose. I don’t eat or recommend eating an excess of fruit, and therefore fructose isn’t problematic. Only the liver metabolizes fructose.

Too much fructose is toxic to the liver, and there is generally an abundance of fructose in most diets (especially the Standard American Diet). An excess of fructose raises triglycerides and increases fat production.

From Dr. Mercola,

When you consume fructose, 100 percent of it goes directly to your liver to be metabolized; this is why it can be extremely hepatotoxic when it overloads your liver, just like alcohol.

SUNFLOWER OIL

Keeping a balanced omega-3 to omega-6 ratio is extremely important. An abundance of omega-6 fatty acids cause inflammation and wreak havoc on the body. Unfortunately, sunflower oil is extremely high in polyunsaturated fat and per one cup has 436 mg of omega-3 fatty acids and 86776 mg of omega-6 fatty acids. This is a highly inflammatory oil.

MALTODEXTRIN

Maltodextrin is a processed food additive, generally derived from corn. Isagenix will not say whether they do or do not use genetically modified corn.

In conclusion:

Let’s sum up my Isagenix review: While not as bad as Herbalife, Isagenix still uses several ingredients that I find highly questionable. Lasting health and healthy weight loss do not come from a shake, a bar, or a “SlimCake.”

Like Herbalife, Isagenix may be an effective weight loss tool. So is anorexia. Does that make Isagenix products healthy? Does that mean a person should use them to lose weight? No.

We need to stop looking for health in a pill, in a shake, or in any other quick fix. The only way to truly be healthy is to eat well, to eat real, whole, unprocessed food. I will teach you exactly how to do this in my 21 Day Lifestyle Transformation.

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.

As of November 2014, there are over 800 comments on this Isagenix review.

I will  now automatically delete comments that include or are similar to the following:

  • comments that are offensive in any way
  • name calling  (this tells me you have no better argument against me by the way)
  • calling me a liar – scroll down, I linked to my sources as well as directly to the ingredients on the Isagenix website
  • commenters that try to argue by providing “research” directly from Isagenix
  • commenters that accuse me of downing an MLM company just for being MLM, I never did this
  • and in general, uneducated comments that do not promote the discussion surrounding Isagenix and the ingredients found in Isagenix products

*It’s come to my attention that an external website that sells Isagenix says the whey they use is from grass-fed cows and that they do not use GMOs. I am suspicious of this for several reasons.

  • The first being that this information is from a website whose intention is to sell this very product. They are no GMO-free verified and nowhere do they label their products as GMO-free.
  • But even if all of the products in Isagenix were 100% organic, the ingredients are still toxic. Soybean oil, gluten, fructose, non-fat dry milk, corn bran, etc. are not healthy.

**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.

    i am sorry – but this whole article is totally inaccurate. And what is your credentials as a nutritional specialist?

    Fact: Food does not have the same nutritional value in it any more, and does not meed the needs of our society.

    Fact: our bodies are not set up to remove the amount of toxins that are put into it from many different sources.

    If you are going to set up a blog you better know what you are talking about and do ACCURATE research.

    I will be ensuring that i circulate this blog to all of the health professionals i know to ensure that you are exposed for giving inaccurate information.

    You are the one that is very dangerous.

    • dani stout Reply

      What exactly is inaccurate about this article?

      This information was pulled directly from the Isagenix website. How can you even try to dispute that?

      I agree, our soil is depleted and therefore our food does not have the same nutritional content in general. This is why I buy local and organic food exclusively, and encourage others to do the same.

      We do experience a higher toxic load than any generation in history, which is why I also encourage safe and effective detoxification methods.

      I do know what I’m talking about and this information is accurate. Did you not clearly understand that this information is pulled directly from Isagenix.com?

      Please do circulate this to all of the health professionals you know. Any health professional that has the slightest grasp of nutritional knowledge will look at these ingredients and know that these products are toxic.

      Again, this information is not inaccurate, it’s directly from the Isagenix website and it’s what’s in their products, which most people neglect to read.

      If encouraging people to eat whole, unprocessed, organic, local and sustainably raised food is dangerous, then yes, I’m extremely dangerous.

      • Wonderful reply Dani!

        I have several friends on this crap and also Herbalife that I am trying to reform to eating real wholesome foods instead. So far their reason for “eating” this junk is that they are lazy and unmotivated to take the time to cook real wholesome food. Very sad but I will keep trying.

        My one friend “sells” Isagenix and is very gung ho and ra ra about their products and keeps asking me to meet with him to just try it. My answer is always No thank you I do not consume those type of “food” supplements. I get all I need from the real food I eat.

        But don’t you want more energy and be able to burn fat to lose weight? That is his typical question to me each time I say No. My response is I have more energy than I know what to do with and I am losing weight just fine on my work out routine and with the foods I choose to put in my body.

        Thanks again, I shared this with all of them!

        • Tara McNally Reply

          I agree with you wholeheartedly. I love making my own protein shakes with pure natural ingredients from my own raw milk and pastured eggs. Isagenix is awesome for people used to a McDonald’s diet and fast food. I consider Isagenix a stepping stone to health for these people, however I cannot promote it as I was raised by parents who taught me the pillars to health came from our foods. Most Americans did not have this foundation so I commend Isagenix as a starting point, it is much better than fast food.

        • Her response is below. I responded to her as you did with your friend tried with you. But this was not a friend I know in my own life. This was just someone that requested to be my friend on FB. She saw that we had a lot in common. She reached out back in November to have me call her and at least try to skype when I had some time. She had something to tell/talk to me about. I avoid it; because I knew/felt that wasn’t about being new friends…but to sell me on something. Shelah, I agree with you. Dani…you keep going with this. Just because Organic/GMO free is used on packaging/products…doesn’t mean it is any better for you. Will smoking organic cigarette be better for you? NOT!!!!

          **************************************************
          ” Hi Hanh, Yes, I am with Isagenix. I understand how you feel that way about shakes also. I was glad I took the time to speak with the formulator. He’s an amazing person and he really understands how to put whole food nutrition into a shake. He explained to me how our body has to actually liquefy the food we eat and break it down into it’s most basic components. He decided to put together a shake that already had all the nutrients our body needs, broken down so our body does not have to do the arduous task of digestion. It tastes really good and I think that if you looked into it very closely you would find that like me, you would be very pleased. If you know anyone who would be interested in something like this and you referred them to me, I would truly be grateful. http://www.isagenixhealth.net
          That link is the science with professional articles. It is not a diet but rather a whole body nutritional cleansing and replenishing program.
          It is organic, non-GMO, very high quality, taking toxins out, rather than putting them in. Best to you!!”

          • “the arduous task of digestion” is something our bodies is meant to do. Digestion is part of your metabolism, which keeps your cells happy.

          • Stephen Scott

            Why do we have molar teeth, maybe not to chew as a carnivore but when extremely needed is handy. And oh yes, that leaves grains and seeds to chew so that they naturally digest in our, oh yes, digestinal tract. If you want to be like an invalid old person and be on fluidized food for the rest of your life, ok then, and oh what are tastebuds for?

          • If you really must consume shakes to help your body digest it’s food then get a blender and make Green Smoothies.
            You could buy a Vitamix and as many organic Fruit and Veggies you liked and it would still be cheaper than Isogenix.

          • Hi Hanh
            Im looking into Isagenix & have a few friends enjoying it with what seems to be great results….. Is there any evidence Isagenix is Organic Non-GMO??
            Kind Regards

        You have listed the ‘common ingredients’ which you are objecting to but most of them aren’t even in the ingredient list of the products you pasted up… wow.. and like Tanya said, what are you credentials? You have said you know what you are talking about but you don’t back that with any credentials or evidence. Isagenix is very carefully formulated by scientists and doctors and careful research is conducted. It looks to me like you clearly have some info about eating whole foods which is great, but you are just against shakes… and I totally agree, I think shake diets are very bad as they lack nutrients and are filled with rubbish but personally and professionally, isagenix has been clinically proven and it works and the research shows this clearly if you look harder and people look into it themselves thoroughly, not just go off a comment that anyone can make. Whole foods are great, but why are we putting on weight on whole foods if they are so good for us and you said yourself the soil is depleted. I wish you well in your journey and hope you are able to look further into this with an open mind.

        • dani stout Reply

          Please see my updated article. I further explain the issue with the ingredients.

          Please explain how soybean oil, fructose, agave, maltodextrin, Isomaltooligosaccharide, corn, tricalcium phosphate, etc are nutritionally beneficial?

          Also, my credentials are directly listed on my “About” page.

          The ingredients I object to are directly on their ingredient list, so I’m not sure what you’re talking about.

          • Kyle Baker

            I am guessing Tonya Hicks and Leisa are distributors. I am personally a fan of supplements but there are so few that are actually decent.

            Is THIS enough proof for you? I have researched for a year now the food I eat and the nutrients I was not getting that were leaving me feeling bloated all the time, fatigued, full of inflammation. Isagenix was a life saver to me!! Don’t bash anything you have not tried or experienced. Just sayin……..

          • dani stout

            I think this is about the 73rd time I’ve said this to an Isagenix supporter – using articles from Isagenix to back up your argument is illogical, biased and ridiculous. You know Monsanto has a ton of reading and studies on why GMOs are healthy. It’s in the best interest of the company to promote their products, not provide actual scientific information.

            I highly doubt that you have researched food for a year, if this were true then you’d likely have even the slightest grasp on nutrition.

            I don’t need to smoke crack to know it ain’t good for me.

          • Well done Dani. A great article. I love all the “where are your credentials” talk because that’s the goto for people who are underqualified to give people nutritional advice but are pushing shit products.

            Dani doesn’t need credentials to read a label Leisa and if you weren’t so brainwashed by the whole “we’re a family that want to be free and healthy and live life crap” then you would realise this too. Recently my girlfriend who works as a physiotherapist at a top clinic in Melbourne and knows a fair bit about Nutrition was pushed samples of these products by one of probably 10,000 ‘unique’ sellers in Australia . She mentioned she had fructose intolerance as diagnosed through thorough testing and the seller said “oh you’ll be fine there’s no fructose in these” she didn’t even know what was in her own products. Stop being little passengers in a world where you can create your own path and get some thoughts of your own Leisha and crew. Its a shit product on the same lines as progenex and herbalife.

            In regards to Lorraines comments, sorry Lorraine your obviously new to the internet as those websites are set up by isagenix. To combat people who’ve can think for themselves. Hence the website url addresses.

            “oh look at me! Im a manager and my own boss!, yay I get additional income and I can work from home, selling shit products to people and feel like im helping them”

            Get a life people, create your own products and businesses, and actually help people if that’s what you want to do

          • Dani, if you would take time to actually read the Isagenix articles you would discover that each article (I am not referring to the marketing material) is fully backed by highly acclaimed and respected scientific, medical and nutritional research and professional publications. Isagenix did not appear from nowhere based on a whim or fancy. It is proven, tested by third party, and has reputable, fully backed by respected doctors and others in all fields of medicine.

          • lol ok after reading your about page, this article all of a sudden became A BIASED review of Isagenix

          • I’ve never tried isagenix, but this is ridiculous.

            Would you eat something that included dihydrochalcone glycosides as an ingredient? Or cholorogenic acid? Or p-coumaric acid? How about phenylalanine?

            If you’re eating apples or oranges, you’re eating those ingredients.

            (And how are corn and agave NOT nutritionally beneficial? They’re both plants.)

          • dani stout

            Did you not read the article or were you not able to comprehend it?

            The ingredients I have an issue with are not the scientific names for naturally occurring components – I have an issue with the synthetic ingredients. I made this abundantly clear.

            I also think I pretty clearly outlined how corn and agave are not healthy. But using your logic – poison ivy is a plant too, it must be nutritionally beneficial!

          • Tim Edge

            Im new to Isagenix. Im 20 days into the 30 day cleanse.
            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.
            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 have so many toxins, processed food like products, chemicals for this, chemicals for that…
            Heres a statement for you: We are NOT what we eat. We are what we ABSORB.
            I am nobody. I have NO “credentials”. Simple as that. I am nobody. No degree, no diploma, no “reputation”.
            But when I consciously choose to travel to far away countries, be accepted by the indigenous people and accept them in return, who hold ancient knowledge and wisdom for the future betterment and evolution of our species, do service to a community, to be part of a combined and soul felt movement for love, understanding, acceptance and peace, then I am SOMEBODY.
            Isagenix plays no part in that previous paragraph, other than it has proven to be a useful tool which has directed my gaze back towards the sun and all its vibrance.
            I am alive again. I feel it again.
            I wont use this tool forever, but I may use it again on occasion.
            Lets not forget, that we are talking about life here. Not just mine. Not just yours. Not just nutrition. We are what we ABSORB. Psychologically, emotionally, spiritually, AND nutritionally. And those things are all inherently interrelated. Our spirituality can dictate our emotion. Our emotion can dictate our brain chemistry. Our brain chemistry can dictate our body chemistry which in turn can dictate what nutrition we absorb. And ALL of those can dictate our psychology. And round and round we go…
            This isn’t so much about “life” as it is about LIVING. And living is a movement. Not a set of static states dictated by those with “credentials”, or by a scientist who “specialises” in one of those static states that bares no awareness or observation to the whole living system.
            If we are going to talk organic, why just nutrition? Why not address the organics (or lack of) of the most influential environmental variable there is: Our thoughts?
            If I listen to him… believe her, am I not stepping away from the true organics of original thought? Do my thoughts not then become a merry-go-round of “what somebody else said?”
            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.
            So I wonder how long we carry on with all these kinds of “comparisons” of each other. I am this… you are that…
            At the end of the day, does it really matter to the individual who is thinking organically in a morally inorganic world how many people signed up for Isagenix today???
            Are there not more pressing issues in the world today that deserve our upmost attention??? Our organic thought and acceptance that there is only, has only ever been, and will only ever be ONE authority on these things? The authority that ONE has in regards to the ONLY relationship that ONE ever has? The ONE relationship with the entirety of the earth and every form of life upon it?
            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.
            And I guarantee you this: Not one iota of an “erg” will be energetically transferred towards wondering if signing up for a 30 day cleanse with Isagenix was a good move or not. I may make use of it again. In fact, I will likely continue with SOME of the products for a while. Might even sign a few people to get my adventure fund up. What do you know… Better health, better lifestyle, AND wealth creation…
            All depends on how you look at it now doesn’t it?
            Hmmm… The Elders are getting pretty old. I think they are having trouble rowing up river these days to fish for their dinner… I wonder if I can afford to buy them a small outboard motor? Maybe I can. Maybe.

          • I dunno even know where you pulled the ingredients list from! It’s so inaccurate. So what if you are a holistic coach it doesn’t mean anything. First of, your source is not accurate. I am into supplements and truly believe in whole food and clean eating. However, Isagenix is by far the safest when comes to Herbalife, Shakeology, Nuskin, Usana and Unicity when comes to toxicity and percentage of chemical compounds. Like you mentioned, US soil is depleted so where else do you get the nutrients; plants, fruits? LOL

            I linked directly to the website where I got the ingredients from. You really should at least be familiar with the ingredients in the products you’re peddling.

            And yeah, it’s completely CRAZY to think you can get vitamins and minerals from actual food!

            Dani,
            For those of us who are open minded and have been through the ropes on the MLM world, and are willing to do the research it takes to understand how health is achieved, you don’t need to state your credentials. Irregardless of them, you are stating your opinion based on the ingredients listed on the label. So don’t you worry about telling me who you are.
            You’ve done and beautiful job at breaking down the label in a way than nobody can dispute. They can argue. But never dispute because is in the label.
            Again,
            Thank you
