True to its claims
Based on several testimonies, yes it may work.
Available in few countries only.
Losing weight is subjective and with the hype, excitement to exercise and diet by the user will result in loss of weight. The desire and intent to lose weight make it work. Any weight loss supplement can be said to be as effective as Isagenix or other weight loss products or program.
Isagenix also claims it has the ideal program for “nutritional cleansing” and can “gently rid the body of any potentially harmful impurities”. Truth is, you do not need any supplement to cleanse your body or undergo a detoxification ritual. Water, fasting, and avoiding meat can do the job.
Bottomline, taking such products adds to the hype and excitement, that in one’s mind, he or she is really being cleansed or is losing weight. You can do this on your own with discipline.
