What You Should Know
Isagenix is marketed as a company that wants to impact world health, according to the Isagenix website. The company has a line of products for cleansing, nutrition, and skin care. One of the products in the cleansing line, Cleanse for Life, is advertised as a tool for weight loss along with energy and good health. The bottles of Cleanse for Life are sold in a two pack, and each 32 ounce bottle is good for two cleansing days. This product appears to be recommended as a part of a complete system designed to cleanse your body over a 30 day stretch. It is also sold as part of the accelerated nine day program, which promises an average weight loss of seven pounds during that time frame. They also have meal replacement options, including shakes and soups.
The entire product line is available from the official Isagenix website, and also through a network of independent affiliate retailers similar to the classic Avon business model. We are pleased to see that the company provides complete ingredient lists for all of its products, but we are not so inclined to buy into the idea of a complete system with numerous products as the best weight loss method. We believe that many dieters can find success through a low calorie diet, daily exercise and a single, effective weight loss supplement.
The ingredients in the berry flavored Cleanse for Life include a proprietary blend that contains aloe Vera leaf, IsaLyte trace minerals, Pau d’Arco inner bark, suma root, eleutherococcus senticosus root extract, burdock root, fennel seed, peppermint leaf, licorice root, choline bitartrate, inositol, betain HCL and I-methionine.
We do not see anything on this list that stands out as an effective weight loss supplement. While many of the ingredients may be quite healthy in other ways, we prefer to see an appetite suppressant and proven fat burner on the list for maximum weight loss benefit. Well known weight loss substances like chromium, green tea, guarana and hoodia are noticeably absent from this list.
Some of the Isagenix products appear to be quite pricey, although a double order of the Cleanse for Life sells for a reasonable $43 at the time of this review. We could not find any information about a free trial offer or money back guarantee.
- The idea of cleansing the body from the inside out does offer a number of health benefits.
- The company provides complete ingredient lists for its products.
- We could not find a money back guarantee.
- The product we looked at doesn’t contain any proven weight loss ingredients.
- The product is sold as part of a complete package that includes many products and is quite expensive.
We like the idea of an effective cleansing product as a method of jump starting a diet. However, cleansing programs are rarely the best choice for long term weight loss. This particular product doesn’t pack much in the way of proven weight loss ingredients to instill much confidence from us in its ability to help dieters shed excess weight. We encourage dieters to look for more effective formulas from other companies for best results.
