How do our products compare to the recommended Heart-Healthy Diet?

How does an Isagenix System Compare to a well-established heart-healthy diet?

Isagenix products were evaluated in an independent, third-party clinical study performed at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) that demonstrated superior results across key measured parameters.

The 10-week study evaluated the effects of both dietary plans in combination with intermittent fasting, or 'Cleanse Days,' on body weight, body composition, cardiovascular risk factors and oxidateive stress marker in 54 obese women with a body mass index above 35. 

The two groups fasted one day per week. However, the Isagenix subjects consumed the herbal-drink, Cleanse for Life, whereas the subjects on the 'heart-healthy' diet plan receive a similar product to serve as a placebo. 

Subjects on the Isagenix system had a serving of Isalean Shake for breakfast and a serving for lunch and were counseled to eat a 400-600 calorie meal for dinner. They also took Ageless Essentials Daily Pack supplements as directed. The 'heart-healthy' subjects received instruction for a registered dietician on how to follow heart-healthy guidelines, which included limiting calories by 20 - 25 percent daily, limiting total fat to 35 percent, limiting cholesterol intake, and increasing intake of fiber-rich foods such as whole grains, fruits, and vegetables. 


Summary with the Isagenix system:
  • more total weight was lost
  • more body fat - especially visceral fat - was lost
Due to the successful weigh and viceral fat loss, results also showed a greater reduction in biological oxidative measurements, greater adherence, and was shown to be easier and more convenient.
