What are Common Isagenix Side Effects 

Isagenix is not a diet. It is a cleansing and detoxification program, but it is also more than this. Isagenix is a lifestyle that helps with energy and mental clarity by providing the body with needed nutrients and ridding the body of unwanted toxins.

There are a many positive Isagenix side effects when you follow through with one of the Isagenix cleanse and detox programs. These include weight loss, improved overall health, increased energy and mental clarity. In the first few days of using Isagenix there can also be Isagenix negative side effects that are common to all detox systems like headaches and fatigue, especially in the first 3 days. These side effects are normal and pass quickly! After three days it is normal for people to feel full of energy and be in a clear state of being.


Negative Isagenix Side Effects

Let’s take a look at potential negative Isagenix side effects. Your body can undergo a range of detox symptoms during your body cleanse common to other cleanse systems. The goal of an Isagenix cleanse and weight-loss program is to achieve optimal body and mind performance, to do this you must first cleanse your body of toxins. To keep yourself clean of toxins, you will need to stop ingesting certain foods and drinks, such as white sugar, caffeine, and alcohol. People that drink coffee regularly will go through caffeine with drawl symptoms when they stop drinking it, symptoms including minor headaches. It is natural to feel uncomfortable as toxins are flushed out of your cells and removed from your body. Depending on the amount of coffee you previously consumed, this detox process can last anywhere from 2-7 days but more often the negative side effects last no longer than 2-3 days.

You can also have other side effects using Isagenix including lethargy and a general sense of cloudiness in your head. But Don’t panic, these symptoms will soon pass and you’ll start to feel fantastic in just a few days!

Potential Side Effects From High Protein Shakes

These possible side effects apply to any high protein supplement or high protein diet, they’re not a risk specific to Isagenix shakes alone.

Isagenix shakes provide large amounts of protein — between 24 and 36 grams of protein per serving, depending on the variety you choose. That’s actually a bonus for most people because you need protein to support strong muscles, tissue maintenance, growth, and your immune system. If you’re looking to lose weight, protein can help you reach your goals because it’s filling and helps boost your metabolism.

Consuming too much protein can sometimes cause unwanted side effects. Your body can only absorb so much protein at a time — up to 10 grams an hour. So loading up on high-protein foods or protein shakes throughout the day might overload your system with protein, causing gastrointestinal issues like diarrhea.

And if you need to limit dietary protein — for example, if you have kidney disease — a relatively high-protein shake like Isagenix might not be safe, because the high protein content increases the strain on your kidneys. 

Side Effects From Allergens or Lactose

You can get Dairy-Free Isagenix Cleansing and Fat Burning products that paves the way to a better, healthier you without the worry of milk proteins or milk sugar (lactose). Anchored by the nutritionally complete plant-based protein in the Natural Berry Harvest IsaLean® Shake, this system helps you lose weight, maintain lean muscle and live a healthier, lactose-free lifestyle.

Regular Isagenix shakes contain whey isolate, milk protein isolate and powdered milk, so they’re not appropriate if you have a milk sensitivity or allergy. While milk allergies don’t typically cause deadly symptoms, milk might cause nausea or other digestive issues, or negatively affect your breathing if you’re allergic to milk components. And because the shakes contain powdered milk, they’re also a source of lactose, which could cause issues if you’re lactose intolerant.

If you’re following a dairy-free diet, opt for the dairy-free IsaLean Shake to avoid side effects. It features a mixture of pea and hemp proteins for a milk-free and vegan-friendly shake. However, this variety contains almonds, so it’s not appropriate if you have a tree nut allergy.

Cleansing is an Integral Part of the Isagenix System

Isagenix and other similar nutritional products feed your cells while cleansing your body. This helps on cleanse days to not feel like you are starving. Isagenix helps and supports your organs that have the most responsibility for cleaning and excreting toxins like the liver and kidneys. Isagenix facilitates your body’s own cleansing processes so that toxin removal becomes more effective. Whilst you may experience some negative side effects while in the first few days of your cleanse, the positive side effects greatly outweigh the Isagenix bad detox symptoms.


Limit the Negative Side Effects with These Tips

Keep Your Body Hydrated

Hydrating your body properly during cleansing is vital to proper detoxification and improved health. It is typically recommended you drink 3-5L of water a day — depending on your current weight. Without proper hydration you’ll experience more severe negative side effects such as Isagenix headaches, so drink up!
