Nutritional cleansing has received a poor reputation due to a lot of poor products on the market and misunderstandings about how they work. A number of our products aim at nutritional cleansing – improving digestive health and bloating by providing gentle, natural support to the body’s systems and improve the gut environment.
What nutritional cleansing shouldn’t do
Nutritional cleansing has been marred by the large number of poor-quality products on the market that claim to provide nutritional cleansing, whereas what they really do is provide low-dosage laxatives. Naturally, this will reduce bloating and short-term weight loss, but will not actually induce any real weight loss. When people come off of these low-quality laxative-based diets, they will immediately regain weight as they switch back to whole foods and the digestive system fills up with food once more.
Beyond this, laxative-based nutritional cleanses are a serious danger to gut health: the long-term use of laxatives from these poor-quality supplements has been shown to have negative effects on the gut itself by damaging the flora in the intestines. This can be a serious concern when we look at damage to the walls of the digestive system and the chances of cancers, ulcers and other serious health conditions.
How are Isagenix cleanses different?
Isagenix cleanses are fundamentally different from these products in the sense that they do not rely on low-dosage synthetic laxatives to improve the health of the gut, instead using sustainable and healthy fibers, vitamins and natural extracts to support digestive health without nuking your intestines! Whilst there are some similarities between these goals and those of low-quality competitors, the way that we approach the problem is totally different and sets us apart.
Isagenix ‘IsaFlush’ and ‘Cleanse for life’ products both provide a mixture of vitamins, minerals and various forms of fiber to provide a much healthier and more comprehensive approach to nutritional cleansing. IsaFlush provides a simple fiber and natural digestive aid blend to improve the regularity of digestive movements within healthy ranges and without damaging any of the tissues of the gut. Cleanse for life adds even more support for the health of these tissues with a mixture of plant-based nutrients to ensure that our digestive system is working at its best: not simply surviving.
How can I benefit from a nutritional cleanse?
The first step to making serious progress on a nutritional cleanse is to take the right approach and use the correct products. As mentioned above, Isagenix’ approach to cleansing is totally healthy and puts itself ‘head and shoulders’ above the rest of the market by putting health first, shortly followed by effectiveness! If you approach the nutritional cleanse as a way of kickstarting your diet by improving digestive health and removing junk from your body, you’re on the right track.
Secondly, make sure that your nutrition and hydration are great, so that Isagenix’ products can provide the best effects. There’s no point performing a nutritional cleanse if you’re still filling your body with processed or sugary junk foods. Eat well whilst cleansing and focus on drinking plenty of water to support your body and improve your results!
