I often get asked about Isagenix side effects. Before I get into what you can commonly expect while doing a nutritional cleanse, let me first say that “side effect” is a medical term used to describe the unintended effects of drugs. So Isagenix side effects aren't really side effects at all, since Isagenix is a food and not a drug.
With that out of the way, here are some of the things you can expect while doing a nutritional cleanse…
Isagenix Side Effects Myths
Myth #1: Stay Close to the Bathroom
When most people think of a “cleanse,” they envision uncontrollable trips to the bathroom, gag-provoking concoctions, and absurd food restrictions. Fortunately, with Isagenix Cleanse Days, you can get all the health benefits of nutritional cleansing without experiencing those horrific—and sometimes dangerous—situations.
What makes Isagenix Cleanse Days different? The combination of decreased calorie intake with the herbs, vitamins, and minerals found in Cleanse for Life supports the body nutritionally while giving the digestive system a chance to rest and the body a chance to detoxify. Unlike other “cleanses,” Isagenix Cleanse Days do not involve restricting yourself to drinking plain juices, or worse, taking laxatives, which can often do more harm than good.
Myth #2: Fasting is Dangerous
Cleanse Days on the Isagenix products work to promote weight loss and support health through what is known as intermittent fasting—alternating periods of fasting and non-fasting (along with supplementation of potent botanicals; more on that later). One of the main effects intermittent fasting has on the body is that it increases the body’s sensitivity or responsiveness to insulin, the hormone that regulates blood sugar. Decreased sensitivity to insulin often accompanies obesity and has been linked to increased risk of diabetes and cardiovascular complications.
Cleanse Days also stimulate greater metabolism of fat, including visceral fat—the fat that surrounds your organs. A recently published clinical trial has shown that Isagenix Cleanse Days (intermittent fasting) along with Shake Days (calorie restriction) are a winning combination for visceral fat loss. In the study, those on the Isagenix system lost more weight, a greater amount of body fat, and twice as much visceral fat (as evident in MRI scans) than those who were following a leading heart-healthy diet plan.
Isagenix Side Effects You Can Expect
It is not unusual to feel some “cleansing symptoms” during the first few days of the program. The most common Isagenix complaints I hear about are mild headaches… Your body is starting to withdraw from certain substances such as caffeine, sugar, etc., and the detoxification process has begun.
The headaches can also be caused from lack of hydration, so make sure to be drinking enough water. Low blood sugar can also cause headaches. Don’t quit! Make sure to keep your blood sugar stabilized by using the Isagenix Snack wafers and IsaDelight chocolates throughout the day. Usually within a few days, the headaches are gone. You will start to feel better with each passing day, and before you know it, you’re going to feel fantastic.
Isagenix diet Cleanse Days and Shake Days provide you with a safe and effective way to burn fat, release toxins, and maintain muscle mass. The program design of combined intermittent fasting with reduced calorie intake is a surefire way to reach you weight loss goals and support overall health and longevity.
So stop worrying about Isagenix side effects and start imagining how great it's going to feel when you drop some weight and remove those harmful toxins!
