Isagenix IsaFlush Review
Isagenix IsaFlush Facts
- Manufactured by Isagenix
- 60 capsules per bottle
Isa-Flush is manufactured by a company called Isagenix, a multi-level marketing company based in the USA. They describe themselves as ‘an innovative health and wellness company providing personalized solutions for lifelong health and wealth’.
They have a wide range of products in the categories of weight loss, energy and performance and healthy ageing.
We discourage those who do visit the Isagenix website from signing up to be an associate. Their ‘simple’ money making plan for associates to follow the ‘’You+2, Them+2′ scheme has the general layout of a pyramid scheme. Their promotional videos focus far more on the money an associate could make, rather on the products they would be selling.
How to Take Toxiflush
Take one to two capsules per day, as needed.
A quick look at Isagenixearnings also reveals just how few people make any money as an associate, with less than 5% of associates being considered business builders (defined by earning $500 or more over the year 2013). Of this 5%, 90% earned less than $10,000 in the year 2013. Considering that a business builder start up pack costs $1099, it is clear that many people are not even making their investment back.
Watching some of the promotional videos, it is clear that the focus is more on building your own business by recruiting other consultants, rather than selling products yourself.
Isagenix IsaFlush Concerns:
- FSA made warnings about consuming Bentonite
- Auto-ship program
- Continuous use could cause dependence
What Does Isagenix IsaFlush Claim To Do?
The promotional video for Isa-Flush states,
Isa-flush is a collection of herbs and minerals which help the gut to work better. It effectively and safely encourages regularity and helps to soothe intestinal discomfort.
The same video also suggests that it supports heart and lung health, although how this is achieved is not specified.
So What Is Isagenix IsaFlush and What Are The Ingredients For Isagenix IsaFlush?
According to one ingredients list, Isa-Flush contains 100 mg of proprietary blend of bentonite, hyssop and peppermint and 200 mg of magnesium oxide. However, on the promotional leaflet for Isa-Flush, the following ingredients are listed.
- Magnesium: A mineral that helps relax the colon and attract water to it for softening the stool. Whilst the product websites states that the product contains no laxatives, other professional sources describe magnesium as being suitable for use as a laxative for a short period of time.
- Bentonite: According to the promotional literature, this is ‘A clay that absorbs toxins and impurities as it goes through the system’. It swells upon contact with water, and is thought to absorb ‘toxins’ and heavy metals from the body. There is no clinical evidence that this product is an effective or healthy detoxing agent, or that it is required by the body. It can be occasionally prescribed as a laxative. There are concerns that Bentonite can be already contaminated and contain high levels of heavy metals before it enters the body. It is also used in industrial drilling and is a key component of cat litter.
- Peppermint Leaf: Peppermint is used to treat IBS and upset stomachs. However, the FDA have banned the sale of peppermint as a medication for use as a digestive aid because of a lack of clinical support. It can still be sold as a supplement, provided no medical claims are made about preventing or treating illness.
- Black Walnut: Whilst the promotional literature states that this ingredient ‘Promotes bowel regularity and relief of occasional constipation’, other sources state that the tannins in black walnut can reduce pain and swelling, and that ‘Black walnut is used to treat parasitic worm infections’.
There is some confusion about the ingredients used in this cleansing pill, as one ingredients list mentions Hyssop, whilst another mentions Black Walnut. Hyssop is a mint-like plant, whilst black walnut is a tree.
Hyssop has not been studied clinically, but has been used in herbal medicine to treat a range of ailments, including;
sore throats, colds, hoarseness, and as an expectorant. Some herbalists also believe that hyssop has beneficial effects for asthma, urinary tract inflammation, and appetite stimulation. Its effectiveness in relieving gas and colic also are listed under its medicinal uses.
So What Does All This Mean?
With two different ingredients lists being available, the accuracy of any claims made about the product is immediately questionable. However, considering the number of laxatives present in Isa-Flush, the claim that it is laxative free is certainly misleading. As people can quite easily develop a dependence upon laxative based cleanse products, requiring their usage to pass bowel movements, they are not suitable for long term use.
We are quite frustrated by Isagenix distributers for promoting auto-ship programs for this product, when customers should not be taking this product for more than two weeks at a time, if at all.
Does Isagenix IsaFlush Have Any Side Effects?
According to the official product website, whilst ‘everyone is different’ Isaflush ‘shouldn’t cause any digestive cramping.’ This phrasing, however, does suggest that this side effect is a possibility. Some websites do suggest that a clay like discharge may occur, although it appears more likely when combined with the herbal laxative psyllium.
The Foods Standards Agency in Britain have released warnings in the past about consuming Bentonite clay, a key ingredient in this diet pill. Whilst their warning relates to specific individual products containing high levels of lead and arsenic, they have also noted that it is impossible to know where any single company obtains their ingredients from. It is possible that other Bentonite products also contain high levels of arsenic and lead.
Exposure to lead presents a risk for infants and children in particular, as it can be detrimental to brain development and affect intellectual performance. For the same reason, pregnant women are also advised to avoid eating or drinking clay due to the potential risk to their unborn child.
Peppermint can cause some side effects including heartburn, and allergic reactions including flushing, headache, and mouth sores.
Not suitable for children, or pregnant or breastfeeding women.
Must be taken with plenty of water.
Any Isagenix IsaFlush Reviews From Customers?
There is one customer testimonial on the official Isagenix website:
For me, one a day is not enough to get my sluggish system moving. For the first week I have to take 2-3 per day to get me going, but once I become regular on the cleanse products then one a day is fine. I do love this product though!
There are some customer reviews on Amazon, but they seem to be primarily focused upon the seller themselves, and using the opportunity to promote their own associate account:
I am an Isagenix Associate, and I am NOT sure where this seller is getting his prices. It is very wrong for him to be selling this product on amazon. You are paying WAY TOO MUCH if you are buying it from this sight.
When you buy into Isagenix, you are buying not only the product, but coaching and support, a chance to make money and get your product for free, and a 100% satisfaction guarantee.
When you are buying Isagenix off of amazon, you are simply buying the product for a LOT more money than you would be paying if you got it from an Isagenix associate. And who knows, this product could be tampered with, and couldn’t even be the right product! SCARY!
I love Isagenix, and I use it for my 3 kids, my husband and myself. I have lost 50 pounds since May of 2013 and went from “obese” to “thin and muscular” on a body composition scale.
Isagenix is an amazing product line, and it works. It really does.
Please dont buy it from this seller, and do not buy it from amazon. Only buy it the RIGHT and TRUE way with an isagenix assosiate, like myself.
Here is my web sight that you can go onto and get the products, my 110% coaching and support and a 100% money back guarantee no questions asked.
This reviewer goes on to promote her own email address. We do not agree with this ‘Isa-associate’ that children can take this product. She also suggests that her weight loss is somehow associated with use of the product, even though it contains no weight loss boosting ingredients.
Unfortunately it looks like you’ll get ripped off purchasing Isagenix products through Amazon. Even purchasing this product at retail price is only $22/box, and if you enroll for the autoship program, it’s only $17/box. There are a ton more products, flavors, and varieties available as well.
We recommend customers avoid auto-ship programs at all costs, because of the difficulty in cancelling these programs.
Isaflush really works well in cleansing the intestines and supplements a healthy diet and balanced vitamin program. This is the only Isagenix product i use every day.
I use the other Isagenix products from time to time; however, the IsaFlush is something I use every day. It works beautifully and gently, and I feel so much better using it. Thanks for offering it on Amazon.
So Does Isagenix IsaFlush Work?
This product is not designed to be a weight loss aid, and is a cleansing product that promotes regularity and aids digestion. However, there are references to weight loss on the Isagenix Isaflush promotional video. A written statement at the start of the video writes,
Weight loss results may vary. In a recent study, participants averaged a weight loss of 7 pounds at the completion of their first Isagenic 9 day program.
This type of weight loss is more than likely water weight and the removal of waste from the bowels. It is unlikely to be permanent weight loss, especially as none of the ingredients affect the metabolism or appetite.
Despite the claims made that this product contains no laxatives, it does seem to be a fairly effective laxative that helps to promote bowel movements.
Where Can I Buy Isagenix IsaFlush?
Isagenix Isa-flush cannot be purchased from the official website, isagenix.com, but it is available at some other online retailers, including amazon. One bottle of Isa-Flush costs $20.25 from amazon, and contains 60 capsules. Because there are numerous sellers of the product registered on amazon.com, we recommend double checking all of the prices available, as some sellers are more expensive than others. For example, we found another seller offering the same bottle for $23.29 plus shipping.
Isagenix uses ‘Isa-associates’ to sell their products for them. They appear to be independent distributers who earn a commission on sold products. According to one forum post written by a distributer, signing up for an auto-ship program of this product costs $17 per bottle.
What About A Guarantee
Reports suggest that Isa-associates offer a money back guarantee on the company’s product range.
Isagenix is a multi-level marketing scheme that places such a huge emphasis upon recruiting more consultants that it can only be compared to a pyramid scheme. We would recommend that customers avoid the company in general, because customers are the prime candidates to be recruited as Isa-associates, or at least pestered to do so.
The company also runs an autoship program, which offers the product cheaper, at the wholesale price of $17 rather than the retail price of $22. We strongly discourage consumers from signing up to any autoship program, especially to purchase a product that ideally should not be used for more than a week or two every few months. They can also be incredibly difficult to cancel.
The product itself is a laxative, despite all of the claims made to the contrary. Considering that the official website and official promotional literature disagree on the ingredients used in the product, we would advise to avoid Isagenix Isa-flush, as you simply do not know what is used in the pills.
As a weight loss pill, any effects would be incredibly short term, and as a cleansing product, the product should not be used by children or pregnant or breastfeeding women, and should not be used for the long term, despite that Isa-associates recommend.
We reject Isagenix IsaFlush.
