Isagenix Basics

Q. What does Isagenix do?

A. By using the Isagenix range of products, you’re giving your body a complete detox and cleanse, thus removing toxins that have built up over your lifetime. This often results in weight loss, but many people use Isagenix to put on lean muscle mass, improve overall health and gain more energy.

Isagenix has many success stories worldwide, you can see many of them in our Isagenix Success Stories section.

Q. What makes Isagenix different?

A. Isagenix was founded and formulated by the world-renowned ‘Mineral Man’, John Anderson. In his more than 30 years of working as a vitamin formulator, John has always been heavily influenced by Eastern philosophy and schools of thought. Therefore, Isagenix contains many ingredients from the East that most Western-inspired products just do not have. Reading an Isagenix ingredient label is akin to perusing the vitamin aisle at your favourite health shop. But with Isagenix, you get a multitude of nutrition in a few simple-to-use formulas available at affordable prices.

What sets Isagenix apart is its ability to deliver real results in a safe, pure formula. Isagenix combines aloe vera with ionic trace minerals and more than 200 active naturals. Our guaranteed formula has everything your body needs–and nothing it does not. The Isagenix program is based around the foundations of nutritional cleansing, which has a host of different benefits.

Q. How do I follow the Isagenix 30 Day System to get results?

A. The Isagenix 30 Nutritional Cleanse features both nutritional shakes for shake days and aloe vera based drinks for deep cleanse days. A typical Isagenix 30 Day Nutritional Cleanse Program has six shake days followed by one deep cleanse day.

Within every Isagenix program is a full instructional booklet containing information on when to take each of the products, a daily planner, meal ideas and more.

We recommend the Isagenix President’s Pak, as it contains the largest array of products for a 30 day period.

Q. What is the difference between a Shake Day and a Deep Cleanse Day?

A. On shake days, enjoy an Isagenix shake in the morning and evening, with a healthy, balanced lunch (and snacks) in between. On deep cleanse days, drink the aloe vera based Cleanse for Life four times per day. On both types of days, it is vital that you drink 3-4L of water. Adequate water intake is vital to flushing out toxins released by the body on the Isagenix program.

Q. I am busy. Is it hard to follow the Isagenix program?

A. The Isagenix program offers you almost instantaneous nutrition with its meal-replacement shakes. Isagenix is the perfect choice for active, busy people on the go by providing a quick, complete meal in a flash. There are also a range of snacks available for purchase; all with the very best nutritional content.

Q. What if I just want to try out Isagenix before committing to the full 30-Day System?

A. Isagenix products can be bought separately. However, it is proven that a full Isagenix program gives you the best possible results because each product within the program is designed with a complete nutritional system in mind. Research shows that it takes at least 14 days to form a new habit. The best results will come from using the Isagenix system for 30 days in a row, alternating Shake Days with Deep Cleanse Days for optimum effect.

Buying Isagenix

Q. What if I do not like Isagenix. Can I get a refund?

A. Your first order on autoship is covered by a product money back guarantee within 30 days. That is why Abundant Energy recommends purchasing either the President’s Pak or the Energy & Performance President’s Pak – as this guarantee is on your first order only, and both of these packs provide optimal nutrition for the first 30 days.

Q. How much does Isagenix cost?

A. Depending on the product you choose the price can vary, if you choose the 30 Day Cleanse, it is $298 – which works out to just $10 a day for most of your monthly food bill. 

Q. How long do I have to follow the Isagenix program?

A. Isagenix improves your body from the inside out, delivering waves of nutritional well-being and mental clarity. Although some customers only choose to complete 1-2 months of the program, we recommend staying on some form of the products such as the shakes for as long as possible. If you did choose to leave the Isagenix program, there are no exit fees or locked in contracts of any sort.

Q. Do I have to sell the products?

A. No, the business aspect of Isagenix is completely up to you! If you wish to pursue this exciting opportunity we are here to help. If you only wish to use the products, that’s fine too.

The Isagenix Program

Q. What makes Isagenix products so special?

A. Isagenix shakes are made from undenatured whey protein from New Zealand. This means that no pesticides or herbicides contaminate the whey, it is not processed, and the cows which produce it have not ingested any steroids or hormones.

This super-healthy whey protein is then combined with trace elements (keys to healthy body functions) and active enzymes (when mixed with water, they become live food which promotes healthy digestion) to create a nutritionally complete meal in itself.

Our supreme quality ingredients, combined in a winning recipe your body will love and flavoured with a taste that will keep you coming back for more set Isagenix products above and beyond all other nutritional programs and products available.
