Welcome to my Blog

In July of 2009 I found myself weighing almost as much as I did when I was 9 months pregnant with my first child 12 years earlier. After spending my whole life "skinny" I the weight was no longer coming off easy. A friend introduced me to Isagenix. I tried the 9-day cleanse and lost 7 pounds. I then completed the 30-day cleanse (after a brief vacation in Disney World) and lost 11 more pounds. Isagenix easily helped me reach my goal. In addition to the weight loss I gained energy back that I forgot I had. I look and feel younger. I now continue to use the Isagenix products not only to maintain my weight but because I truly believe that they are keeping me healthy and young. The best part is to this date, the extra weight has not returned.

I have compiled this blog to give you information about the different Isagenix products. Whether you goal is weightloss or you just want to do something awesome and healthy for yourself Isagenix has products to meet your needs. Please
contact me for additional information. I would love to get you started on your way to a healthier YOU.

Natural Weight Loss Without Dieting

Natural Weight Loss Without Dieting

By: Dr. Paul Anderson
Scientific Advisory Board Member and IsaDelight® Formulator

How Isagenix is Refreshingly Different
Our clinically-proven four-step Cleansing and Fat Burning System helps fire-up your fat-melting metabolism for healthy weight loss and optimal health.

No more yo-yo dieting or taking dangerous diet pills. Finally – shed those stubborn unwanted pounds and extra inches easily without going hungry or starving yourself. Here are the four low-calorie, fat-burning steps to a slimmer, healthier you.

Step One – Nutritional Cleansing with Cleanse-for-Life®
Giving your body the right nutrition for a thorough cellular detox is called “Nutritional Cleansing.” Nutritional Cleansing is not one of those fad juice fasts or crazy colon cleanses.

Cleanse for Life is a natural, delicious herbal drink that supports Nutritional Cleansing. It helps your body’s own natural detox systems remove toxins as you lower calories and burn off unwanted body fat.

Each 25-calorie serving contains a proprietary blend of 11 gentle detox-promoting natural botanicals with organic agents and Ionic Alfalfa™ minerals.

When you perform regular Nutritional Cleansing with Cleanse for Life, you give your body a fat-burning start to ideal weight and optimal health.

Step Two – Replenish Your Body with Satisfying IsaLean® Shakes
The IsaLean® Shake is a high-protein, nutrient-dense, low 240-calorie complete beverage that satisfies you while helping burn unwanted body fat.

The filling, proprietary replenishing formula combines in one tasty shake:

* 23 grams of the highest-quality grade 7 undenatured whey and casein protein from the world’s pure source: New Zealand grass-fed cows raised without antibiotics, growth hormone or steroids
* 6 grams of good fats from olive oil, flax seed and high-oleic sunflower oil
* Low in lactose, with extra lactase enzymes for easy digestion
* Natural, helpful digestive enzymes, with acidophilus for bowel health

- and for optimal nutrition:

* Essential A, B, C, D and E vitamins with ionic minerals sourced from deep beneath the earth’s crust
* Natural flavors with no artificial ingredients
* No trans or esterified fat
* An ideal 40:30:30 nutrient ratio – the right blend of carbohydrates, protein and fat for optimal nutrition

Drink one or two complete, nutritionally-packed, low-calorie IsaLean Shakes daily for healthy weight and optimal health.

Step Three – Relax and Rejuvenate with Ionix® Supreme
Our Ionix Supreme offers a unique blend of stress-coping, performance-supporting adaptogenic herbs that includes: Eleutherococcus , Golden Root and Nepali Shilajit, plus antioxidants like Wolfberry and Ionic Alfalfa.

Adaptogenic herbs have been used for thousands of years in traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine. Soviet Scientists used adaptogenic herbs to secretly improve the performance of their gold-medal-winning Olympic athletes, cosmonauts and soldiers.

Scientific studies suggest adaptogenic herbs in Ionix Supreme may balance your brain under stress, maximizing your mental and physical performance. This helps your healthy weight-loss with the Cleansing and Fat-Burning System.

Together, Ionix Supreme’s adaptogenic botanicals, antioxidant flavonoids, B vitamins and exclusive Ionic Alfalfa minerals help soothe stress, while boosting youthful energy for easier exercise and workouts – without caffeine, excess sugar or stimulants.

Ionix Supreme contains a proprietary blend of over 100 natural active ingredients known to help support improved mental and physical performance.

* Reduce stress – perform at your best. Drink 1-2 ounces of Ionix Supreme daily.

Step Four – Fire-Up Your Fat-Burning Metabolism with Natural Accelerator™
Natural Accelerator fires-up your fat-burning metabolism while reducing your appetite with zero calories and no caffeine or sugar.

The natural fat-melting ingredients, green tea, cayenne, American ginseng and cinnamon, give you a smooth-lasting energy boost without those shaky feelings and jitters you get from over-sugared, caffeinated energy drinks. The extra 75 mcg of chromium helps balance your blood sugar.

Natural Accelerator is 100% caffeine-free and does not contain any harmful or banned stimulants such as ephedra or ma huang. This natural fat-burning formula also includes Royal Jelly extract, a source of natural B vitamins and a rich supply of niacin that supports reduced appetite.

People are Talking about Isagenix

I have coached 20+ people through the 9-day and/or 30-day Isagenix programs. I get emails every week about the successes they are experiencing. Here are some of the latest comments:

"I am finding that yet another added perk to these products is that even when you deviate from the program, seems you don't immediately gain back the weight or if you do gain a bit, it comes right off. So many people have commented how much younger I look and the best part is that I feel it."

"Once again, I cannot thank you enough for introducing isagenix into my life. Not only myself, but my family and friends have noticed drastic changes: loss of weight, the clearest skin I've had in my life :), inflammation gone, and overall, more energy. I've lost 13 lbs and feeling great, confident and motivated to tackle about anything. . . . . .cannot wait to have my first shake on the 30-day cleanse :)."

Nutritional Cleansing Helps the Body to Purify and Drop Weight and Inches ~ SAFELY . . .

impurities and hydrate your body.
• You will feel lighter, have less fat, and lots more energy.

Why it is Safe to Lose Weight Fast ~ with ISAGENIX Nutritional Cleansing . . .
• Many DIETS that promote RAPID weight loss use harsh diuretics which rob the body of important
nutrients and minerals (especially potassium, magnesium, calcium) which can dangerously upset
your electrolyte balance ~ causing dehydration and often depression.
• ISAGENIX® does NOT use Harmful Stimulants ~ like Ma Huang, Ephedra or Caffeine ~ which
speed up your metabolism in an unhealthy way ~ increasing your blood pressure and heart rate.
• ISAGENIX® feeds your body wholesome FOOD and HERBS ~ to help your body CLEANSE itself ~
and NOURISH and REVITALIZE your cells.*
• That’s why you feel so vibrant and have so much energy. When you help your body to free itself
of impurities ~ you feel better, brighter and have lots more energy.

FAQ: IsaLean Shakes

What makes IsaLean Shakes unique?
IsaLean Shakes contain superior nutrition compared to other meal replacement shakes on the market. IsaLean Shakes contain exclusively sourced IsaPro® Complex, the highest quality whey protein concentrate and casein protein from the world’s largest dairy group in New Zealand, whose standards exceed the USDA organic standards. The cows are pasture-fed and not treated with hormones or antibiotics. The protein in our shakes is extracted from the milk using a proprietary technology that no other company in the world can mimic. As a result, IsaLean Shakes contain lower lactose levels and a superior amino acid profile. IsaLean Shakes also contain Ionic Alfalfa™—our proprietary blend of supercharged rare Earth minerals to keep the body running at peak performance.

Why are IsaLean Shakes so important for the body?
IsaLean Shakes provide balanced nutrients to maximize nutrition while minimizing caloric intake for safe weight loss and effective weight management. Our exclusive shakes also have added enzymes to break down the carbohydrates, proteins and fats for maximum absorption of key nutrients.

How do IsaLean Shakes support Nutritional Cleansing?
Protein is an important nutrient needed by everyone on a daily basis. It is made up of essential and non-essential amino acids, which are the “building blocks” for healthy bodies. Our high quality whey protein concentrate contains a superior amino acid profile for optimum health and wellness. Protein has a number of different roles in the body including the following:

• Repair body cells
• Build and repair muscles and bones
• Provide a source of energy
• Curb cravings
• Control many of the important processes in the body related to metabolism

What can I add to my IsaLean Shakes?
Our delicious shakes are perfect enjoyed just as they are. However, they are also extremely versatile and can be mixed with other great Isagenix products. For extra nutrition, add a scoop of IsaFruits®, Isagenix Greens!™, Want More Energy?®, IsaPro, Isagenix FiberPro™ or a half of an Oatmeal Berry SlimCake. You can add fresh fruit to your shake.

FAQ: Cleanse for Life

What makes Cleanse for Life™ unique?
Most products claim only to cleanse the colon or liver and do not provide key nutrients. Cleanse for Life is different, it contains an exclusive combination of ionic minerals, botanicals, vitamins that cleanse the entire body on a cellular level, while supporting improved health. Cleanse for Life actually nourishes the body as it cleanses.

Do I need both every day cleansing and deep cleansing?
For everyday cleansing, use 1-2 ounces up to twice daily. For deep cleansing, drink 4 ounces four times daily. A regular cleansing regime can help improve and maintain your overall health and vitality.

How often should I use Cleanse for Life?
We recommend using 1-to-2 ounces of Cleanse for Life twice daily in combination with regular deep cleansing, which can be done weekly or twice a month. A regular cleansing regime can help improve and maintain your overall health and vitality.

How can I benefit from drinking Cleanse for Life?
When you drink Cleanse for Life, you help your body eliminate toxins and impurities that we’re exposed to on a daily basis. When used as part of the Isagenix Cleansing and Fat Burning System**, including proper diet and exercise, Cleanse for Life offers a number of healthy benefits:

• Increases energy and endurance*
• Helps to lose excess weight*
• Increases resistance to oxidative stress*
• Improves mental and physical performance*
• Strengthens the immune system*
• Supports cardiovascular, respiratory and circulatory health*
• Aids digestive health*

Is Cleanse for Life™ safe?
Absolutely! However, as with any other dietary product, if you are pregnant, nursing, diabetic, on medication, have any medical condition, or are beginning a weight control programs, you should consult your Healthcare Professional before using this or any other dietary supplement.

Are all of Isagenix products organic?

As part of our promise to provide no-compromise products, we use the highest-quality raw materials. Isagenix does prefer to use organic ingredients whenever available—and we do so in many of our products. Not all ingredients, however, are organic due to un-availability. As always, we thoroughly inspect our products to ensure safety, purity, and potency.

How long should I continue using the Total Health and Wellness System?

After feeling the benefits of Cleansing, why would you ever stop? Our perfect Total Health and Wellness System includes two Cleanse Days a month. Combined with sensible eating and exercise, the Total Health and Wellness System—along with other Isagenix nutritional products—is your key to maintaining a healthy weight and achieving optimum health and wellness for life. The Total Health and Wellness System can cost as little as $4.00 a day and save you money on food.

How can Isagenix Systems help me reach optimum health?

Studies show that over time, a balanced diet that is low in calories and high in vitamins, minerals, and other phytonutrients—a low macro-nutrient/high micronutrient diet—is the key to living a long, healthy life. Your Isagenix System helps you to safely reduce caloric intake—through a proprietary internal body cleansing and nutrition system—without depleting your body's needs for essential nutrients.

Also, use IsaPort—an excellent computer program and support tool to track your caloric intake, separate foods into fats, proteins, and carbohydrates and also help you to track your progress.

How can cleansing help my body reach a healthy weight?

Cleansing by limiting the diet to the Cleanse for Life drink for one or two days per month, combined with the other key daily components of your Isagenix Program, supports steady loss of weight, increased energy, elimination of impurities, better absorption of vitamins and minerals, and better overall health. In clinical trials using our 9 Day Supply, the average weight loss was seven pounds in nine days.

How can Isagenix Systems help me reach a healthy weight?

Your Isagenix System applies principles of a healthy and lean lifestyle—mainly a moderate-calorie diet high in nutrients and an increase in physical activity—with the addition of a proprietary internal body cleansing and nutrition system.

The beauty of the IsaLean® Shakes in your program is that they provide a full-spectrum of necessary nutrients in a calorie-efficient way. Use them as replacement for one or more meals each day to safely reduce your caloric intake without depriving yourself of needed nutrients. As your body receives needed nutrients each day, you reduce typical cravings often associated with dieting.

What are all the benefits I can receive by using Isagenix Systems?

Our Cleansing and Fat Burning System helps your body to cleanse and burn fat naturally. The Total Health and Wellness System helps you maintain your target weight and a healthy lifestyle through sound nutrition and sensible meals.

The Systems are designed to support your body's ability to:

Safely lose unwanted pounds and inches.
Cleanse harmful impurities from your system.
Burn fat and build muscle.
Naturally reduce unhealthy cravings and appetite.
Absorb balanced nutrients.

I get hungry during my Cleanse Days. What can I do?

Be sure to take your Isagenix Snacks to curb cravings. If you must eat a little, try small apple slices, a small salad, a hard boiled egg, a couple of unsalted raw almonds, IsaFuel, or IsaFruits. We also suggest you get more sleep. Going to bed earlier in the evening helps you resist the urge to snack.

Where does all this incredible energy come from?

Not only are you slimmer after cleansing, but it can help restore your natural absorption of nutrients. This allows your body to be flooded with balanced nutrients—macro-nutrients, vitamins, and minerals—giving you tremendous energy. We use no harmful stimulants, no caffeine, no ma-huang, and no ephedrine.

Why do I feel so good after my Cleanse Days?

It's wonderful, isn't it? When you eliminate harmful impurities and excess pounds from your body, you naturally feel fantastic. You're on your way to being healthy, clean, and lean. Cleansing with the Total Health and Wellness System or the Cleansing and Fat Burning System is a safe and amazing way to assist the cleansing of impurities that build up in your system over the years. This, in turn, can help you lose excess pounds and inches. A healthy body is a clean and lean body. That's why cleansing makes you feel fantastic.

Isagenix is not a Colon Cleanse

The following has been taken from Isagenix Nutritional Cleanse Versus Herbal Colon Cleanse - Review Comparison. It was written by Jeff Gadley, a former Registered Nurse, Olympic Athlete and Fitness, Health and Exercise Expert. Currently he writes helpful health articles to assist individuals with living a healthier lifestyle.

" . . . . . Now, let's get a base understanding of Isagenix Nutritional Cleansing. As the company explains in corporate marketing materials, cleansing is not new. However, what they have done is brought it from an ancient approach to modern day and thus, created a scientifically advanced product that is designed to infuse a nutrition dense formulation of minerals, herbs and botanicals into your body for the purpose of eliminating toxins and impurities.

Now, follow this closely - these toxins and impurities are embedded in tissues and body fat, so one of the main objectives of their process is to help you get these dangerous substances out of your body.

Important Note: Research has shown that these toxins and impurities have been linked to your body adding fat stores and making it difficult to lose weight and keep it off! This is because the extra body fat is produced as a defense mechanism to protect the body from the dangerous substances being introduced to it daily.
When comparing the different process of a Colon Cleanse versus the Isagenix Nutritional Cleanse we can start to see that one is dealing with the physical mechanics of the body's elimination system, while the Isagenix product is for optimizing the physiology of cell and chemical functions in the entire human body.
What that means is that it gets to the root of all problems that arise in the human body.
Recent research have discovered that our bodies are loaded with 200+ toxins, chemicals and impurities and that these nasty particles of destruction come from the food that we eat, the fluids that we drink and the air that we breathe.

In other words, there is no way to avoid these hazardous chemicals and pollutants from getting inside of you, so their product was specifically designed to reduce those life-long accumulated levels of toxins and impurities.

In conclusion, they both are good product by your body would greatly benefit from. However, the Isagenix Nutritional Cleansing product dominates Herbal Colon Cleansing in terms of providing your body with excellent nutritive substances and the critical nutrition needed for the body to begin the process of healing."

Nancy O'Dell Uses Isagenix

Nancy O'Dell turned from cardio to cleanses after being sidelined by a knee injury on Dancing with the Stars. The former daily runner tells PEOPLE that she turned to Isagenix, a cleansing and fat burning nutritional system, to maintain her physique. Read her story here.

I Love these Isagenix Products

I just want to let you know that I tried the new powder cleanse. For those of you that are not fond of the taste of the liquid cleanse, you may like the powder. It is fuity and a bit sweet. I just had some in hot water and it tasted like a fruity tea. It can also be mixed with cold water but the hot cleanse is a nice option on cold winter days and nights.

I also recently tried the slim cakes. It was a nice treat - oatmeal cookie with berries. These are great for getting through the cleanse days.

Another product I recently started using is the Isagreens. I add a scoop to my vanilla shake in the morning and get my full serving (and them some) of vegetables for the day.

What People are Saying About Isagenix

I began using Isagenix in July of 2009. I lost 7 lbs on the 9-day program and 11 lbs on the 30-day. I continue to use their Health and Wellness program and have kept the weight off.

I have coached approximately 20 people through the 9-day and 30-day cleanse. Here is a sampling of what people tell me about their experiences with Isagenix:

"Must share that my appetite and even desire for the amount of food I used to eat is definitely changed -- for the better."

"Final results were really exciting -- total weight loss was 8+ lbs. with 2"+ off the waist and more than an inch in the bust and hips. Received the (new) shipment from Isagenix yesterday and was happy to start my day with a shake."

"6 lbs. lighter and happy - Was wondering how to order the 30 day."

"I don¹t want to stop. This is good for me and I talked to the doctor and he said as long as it is working and I feel good, then go ahead."

"Best of all, I feel clear-headed (and have from the very start) and havemore energy than I ever imagined including yesterday, a cleanse day, when I was out and about from 10am - 8pm."

". . . .the cleanse days are a wonderful opportunity to combine the spiritual elements of fasting with the cleansing."

"As you can tell I'm in a great mood today. My total loss is 7 Lbs and 201/4 inches, and I feel great. My energy level is greater than before we started this. I hope the new order arrives today."

The Isagenix 9-Day Cleanse

If this is your first time cleansing with Isagenix, you should complete two pre-cleanse days before starting the nine days. Thus making this an 11-day cleanse.

Day Two - Pre-cleanse - see my other post for instructions.

Days Three and Four - Cleanse - You'll drink four-ounces of Cleanse for Life™ four times. I like to drink it cold over ice. Drink the water immediately afterward. Throughout the day, drink at least half your body weight in ounces of water and eat Snacks!, almonds or organic apples if you get hungry. IsaDelight™ is an excellent treat that may also help alleviate nagging cravings and hunger, while lifting your mood. Take one to two, up to twice daily. Take one Natural Accelerator™ capsule early morning and at 2:00 in the afternoon for best results.

Days Five-Nine - Shake Days - drink two shakes today and eat one sensible meal, along with IsaDelight™, Snacks!, almonds or an organic apple. See my Eating Healthy Blog for some meal ideas.

Isagenix Testimonial - Pat, Locust Valley, NY

Isagenix has been life changing for me. To date I have lost approximately 65 lbs and I feel better than I did when I was 20 year old. My energy is incredible, I have joined a gym(1 month and counting), started lifting weights to tone my muscles, and find that I can play with the kids for hours on end. The great news for the family is that my wife has also experienced similar results and we have become a more active and energetic couple to be around.

To date I have helped 20+ people start the program and they have also seen the same results that Pam and I experienced. Some of these people were severely overweight like myself, some just wanted to lose a little but increase their energy, and some did not want to lose any but wanted to eliminate toxins from their body and become healthier.

Eliminating toxins is the key to Isagenix. I could have done the typical diets or even eat nothing and I would not have lost the weight that I have. In removing toxins from your system it allows the body to shed excess water and fat celled that are wrapped around these toxins for the sole reason of protecting you. There is a video on the web site from a doctor that explains this better than I can.

About Me - My Isagenix Story

I am 43 years old and a month ago I weighed almost as much as I did when I was 9 months pregnant with my first child 11 years ago. After spending my whole life "skinny" the weight was no longer coming off easily. A friend introduced me to Isagenix. I started the program on July 14, 2009. To date (8/16/09) I have lost 11 pounds. I started with the 9 day cleanse and lost 7 lbs. I then took a vacation and did not follow the program closely. I was worried that I would gain back all the weight, but I only gained 2 lbs after a week in Disney World. I have since started the 30-day cleanse and have lost 4 more pounds.

In addition to the weight loss:
  • I feel great and have more energy.
  • I have cut out eating junk foods and no longer have cravings for junk food.
  • I have cut my coffee intake. I would usually have 2-3 cups a day. I now have less than a cup. I could probably cut it out altogether, but still love that morning cup of coffee.
  • I notice a difference in my hair and nails. My hair feels thicker and healthier.
  • I also noticed that I no longer get migraines. I am not sure if Isagenix has anything to do with this. However, I have not had a migraine since starting the program. I did get infrequent migraines before.

Isagenix in the News

ABC News Tried to Prove Isagenix Cleansing Didn't Work. ... Boy Were They Surprised!!!

What is Nutritional Cleansing?

The revolutionary practice of Nutritional Cleansing, which can result in greater health, well-being and weight loss, is the foundation in which Isagenix® and its systems were developed.

Nutritional Cleansing is built upon the health routine of cleansing, including fasting and drinking herbal remedies, which has been practiced throughout history. Cleansing gives the body the chance to rest, regenerate and assist in its natural ability to remove toxins and impurities to promote long-term wellness. However, Nutritional Cleansing improves upon this ancient practice with a system that cleanses, replenishes and revitalizes the body with essential nutrients. Fasting helps to remove impurities from the body, but Nutritional Cleansing speeds up this process by infusing the body with healthy nutrients.

In simple terms, Nutritional Cleansing can be compared to changing the oil in your car. We regularly change the oil in our cars because it gets dirty and clogged by pollutants. We drain the dirty oil and replace it with clean oil, which helps our cars to run more efficiently. The same can be said for our bodies. We are regularly exposed to pollutants in our environment, impurities in our diets and stress that is often created by our hectic lifestyles. Nutritional Cleansing helps the body and organs to do what they are designed to do naturally and remove impurities.

Isagenix has created the practice of Nutritional Cleansing and developed systems that help to promote optimum health. Isagenix systems focus on a complete approach to greater health and wellness with Nutritional Cleansing, a low-calorie meal routine and taking essential daily nutrients. Cleanse Days are a period of low-calorie intake, with no meals and only suggested snacks, accompanied by our Cleanse for Life™ liquid nutritional supplement, which replenishes the body with essentials vitamins and minerals. The low-calorie meal routine consists of Shake Days where one to two meals are replaced with healthier options such as nutrient-rich IsaLean® Shakes, Bars or Soups. The third meal is a suggested low-calorie, nutrient-dense meal. The final component of our systems is an infusion of essential nutrients, which includes daily supplements taken that provide essential vitamins and minerals to optimize health.

Our Nutritional Cleansing systems are not a “quick-fix” or a diet, but a means to creating a healthy, manageable lifestyle. The benefits of Nutritional Cleansing, combined with the convenience of a complete wellness system, has given people the ability to change their lives in remarkable ways and has created greater health and safe, lasting weight loss for hundreds of thousands of people. *Weight-loss results may vary.

Traditional Diet vs. Cleansing

One of the ways the liver deals with impurities is to increase body fat to enfold these impurities to protect the body from their influence. Diets are not successful for long term weight loss because they don’t address the need to cleanse the body of impurities.

Traditional Diet:Fat stored to protect from impuritiesSmaller body means increased percentage of impuritiesBody senses increased level of impurities and goes into emergency fat production - REBOUND!Fat stored to protect from impurities .

Cleansing:Shed Pounds Without The Rebound and Help Build Lean Muscle at the Same Time !Cleansing is a safe, healthy, and natural way to achieve a healthier, leaner body.Impurities are released, so body sheds fat Better overall health with less fat and more lean muscle.

21 Reasons to Cleanse

21 Reasons to Cleanse & Replenish -
by Becky Natrajan, M.D.

1. Strengthen the Immune System. Cleansing impurities and flooding the body with high grade essential nutrients strengthens the immune system. Some studies indicate that a healthy dose of high grade, absorbable protein will strengthen your immune system by as much as 500%.

2. Love Your Liver. A clean, healthy liver supports metabolism and burns fat. A healthy liver promotes normal thyroid function and when the thyroid is healthy, your metabolism and energy levels escalate.

3. Support Healthy Brain Chemistry. When your body can effectively absorb and digest fats and protein, it converts these nutrients into healthy brain chemicals. When your brain chemistry is aligned, you will make healthier food selections.

4. Restore Antioxidants. Toxic compounds create "free radicals" that have the potential to damage cellular DNA-thus leading to cancer, weakened immune systems and accelerated aging. Antioxidants are substances that block free radical formation and destroy already formed free radicals.

5. Free yourself from stress. In herbal medicine, adaptogens are used to help the body "adapt" to imbalances that stress the body externally or internally. Replenishing the body's needed adaptogens assists in the body's own self-regulatory systems, thus reducing stress.

6. Maximize Absorption of Essential Nutrients. Maximizing absorption of nutrients helps to fuel the internal body to support all major organ systems including the circulatory, musculoskeletal, and neurological systems.

7. Aid Digestion. Herbs such as suma, peppermint, fennel seed, and licorice have been used in many cultures to support and aid in digestion. Peppermint is a nontoxic digestive remedy that can provide relief from gas, bloating, nausea, and gastric upset. Peppermint has a calming effect on the smooth muscle of the intestinal tract and is felt to promote the flow of bile from the gallbladder into the small bowel, thus aiding in the digestion of fats.

8. Rejuvenate Your Cells with Ionic Minerals. Minerals are the key to enzyme activation in our digestive tract. When minerals are present, our intestines allow for ultimate absorption of vitamins and essential nutrients. Modern lifestyle has taken its toll on our digestive/elimination organs. Ionic (charged) minerals are the most easily absorbed by our body.

9. Support Your Vital Organs. If your body is overwhelmed with impurities, gentle cleansing herbs and essential nutrients will allow it to eliminate toxins through the liver (the major detoxifying organ of the body), colon, urinary tract, sweat glands, skin pores, and the lymphatic system much more effectively.

10. Lose Weight and Feel Great. Studies have shown that fat cell provide the perfect environment for holding onto toxins. This is our body's natural mechanism for protecting itself from dangerous, often deadly toxins. Cleansing aids in the body's ability to flush fat and increase metabolism.

11. Eliminate Unhealthy Cravings. The healthy body will crave healthy things. The unhealthy body will crave unhealthy things. Cleansing and replenishing allows the internal body to create an environment that craves good, nutritious food.

12. Enhance Cellular Communication. Our cells want two things: good nutrients and a clean environment in which to communicate. Cleansing provides our cells with both.

13. Build Muscle. Cleaning and then replenishing with pharmaceutical grade organic whey protein provides the body with essential amino acids that are the building blocks for the development of lean, dense muscle.

14. Address Diabetes. Type II diabetes is a serious disease that is rampant because of our lifestyles. Effective weight loss and fueling of the body can aid in the body's ability to restore normal sugar levels.

15. Beautify The Skin. Our skin is the largest organ of our body. Cleansing and replenishing rejuvenates our skin, making us appear younger and more supple.

16. Create Abundant Energy. Better sleep cycles, achieved through cleansing, provide the body with stamina, energy, and mental clarity throughout the waking hours.

17. Balance Your Hormonal System. Cleansing and replenishing balances hormone levels, leading to a feeling of constant well being, increased stamina and increased sexual desire.

18. Slow the Effects of Aging. Toxins and nutritional deficiency can lead to premature aging on an internal and external level. Cleansing and replenishing allows our cells the ability to attach the affects of aging head on. A younger appearance along with incredible energy is often the result!

19. Address Cancer. Researchers suggest that approximately 90,000 cancer deaths may be related to obesity and are therefore, preventable. For almost all cancers, the risk of death increases coincident with body mass increases. Cleansing and replenishing often results in significant weight loss and, thus can reduce the risk of cancer.

20. Enhance Elimination. Refined, processed, low fiber foods, animal fats, lack of exercise, dehydration, and an ever-increasing level of stress all contribute to an irritable bowel and to sluggish elimination from the intestinal tract. Cellular cleansing and replenishing with fiber rich nutrients allows for better colonic elimination of impurities and is essential in the prevention of intestinal disorders.

21. Never Diet Again! Cleansing and refueling the body is an "anti-diet" approach to optimal health and weight manangement. "Diets" are often imbalanced and neither strengthen the immunes system nor rid the body of toxins. Imbalanced diets rob the body of essential nutrients and only offer temporary results.
