Isagenix Scam: Questionable Medical Claims, No Science Behind Them

Standard

Multi-level marketing company Isagenix offers a cleansing product which it claims helps people lose weight. Is this MLM scheme offering a bogus product, or is this a legitimate weight loss program?

Let’s start off by clarifying that in general, multilevel marketing companies are legal scams in the United States. The government allows them to exist and multiply. They offer products which are little more than a “front” for the schemes, since without a legitimate looking product or service, the companies would be at risk of appearing to be illegal pyramid schemes.

In this article, we are not focusing on the MLM method of selling an opportunity or product. We are looking at the product itself.  Isagenix has its roots in colon cleansing products. These are detoxification products which they claim help people lose weight. The company also offers vitamins, supplements, and anti-aging products for the skin.

Does detox work to help lose weight? Is it something healthy that people should be doing regularly? The Mayo Clinic says that detox diets have no proven scientific benefits. Our bodies naturally remove toxins from things we ingest, and there is no need to add some sort of cleansing products to our diets to remove toxins.

Dr. Harriet Hall writes more below about the junk science behind Isagenix. In short, there are no proven benefits to using the Isagenix products. Users of the products may offer anecdotes about their success with them, but that is not the same as having independent scientific studies supporting such claims. Of course, Isagenix prohibits reps from making medical claims about the products, but such a prohibition never seems to stop the distributors in any company.

 

Critique of Isagenix

by Harriet Hall, M.D.

A friend inquired about a product, Isagenix (actually a whole family of products) that is being pushed by the leader of her weight loss group, claiming that “The Isagenix cleanse is unique because it not only removes impurities at the cellular level, it builds the body up with incredible nutrition. Besides detoxing the body, Isagenix teaches people a wonderful lesson that they don’t need to eat as much as they are accustom to and eating healthy choices are really important and also a lot of the food we are eating is nutritionally bankrupt.”

I went through the website (http://www.isagenix.com/) and watched the promotional videos. There is so much to criticize that I hardly know where to start. It’s all misinformation, unsupported claims, testimonials, and money-making ploys.

I couldn’t find a critique of Isagenix on the Web, but that’s not surprising. No serious medical scientist would take it seriously enough to bother about it. And it’s basically all been done before; it’s just a slightly new wrinkle on an old scam. You will find some information on related products at: http://www.quackwatch.org/01QuackeryRelatedTopics/detox.html

You can also go to the quackwatch.org homepage and type in cleansing or type in detoxification.

The claims on the Isagenix website are a mishmash of pseudoscience, myth, misrepresentation, and outright lies. For example:

  • Americans are sicker than ever before.
  • Toxicity accounts for most diseases.
  • The body protects itself from toxins by coating them with fat, causing obesity. [The truth: some toxins are soluble in fat and can be taken into existing fat cells, but no new fat cells are created.]
  • The internal organs become clogged and deteriorate if you don’t cleanse.
  • Nutrients that cleanse, revitalize, rejuvenate — what does this even mean?
  • The human body needs cleansing like air conditioners that need their filters changed and car engines that need oil changes. [This is nonsense: the human body cannot be compared to a machine: it is a living, self-regulating organism that does its own maintenance.]

They engage in scare-mongering about toxins, but provide no data to show that the tiny amounts we ingest lead to any significant adverse health effects. They also provide no evidence that their treatment actually removes any toxins from the body. Or that doing so would have any significant impact on health. There have been no properly controlled scientific studies of their “cleansing” treatments, only testimonials of the sort that abound on the Internet for hundreds of other ineffective products.

There is absolutely no rationale for the particular combination of ingredients in their products. They have LOTS of different products, and have included just about every nutrient and herbal remedy in existence: 242 of them! Some of these we know to be useless, some are potentially harmful, and we have no idea how the particular ingredients in the mixtures might interact for better or for worse.

They offer “ionic” minerals from “ancient plant deposits.” Minerals are the same thing wherever they come from, and all “ionic” means is that it is in a form that can be absorbed — i.e. magnesium as milk of magnesia rather than as a lump of elemental magnesium metal.

They advertise “no caffeine added” for a product that contains green tea; green tea contains caffeine. They repeat the tired old myth that our food isn’t as nutritious as in the “good old days.” They put digestive enzymes in their products to help you assimilate them, not realizing that orally ingested digestive enzymes are themselves digested in the stomach before they can do anything. They say that their electrolytes “ignite the body’s electrical system” — I have no idea what this means, and it certainly is not scientific terminology.

Their antioxidant mixture contains 15,000 IU of vitamin A as beta carotene plus 5000 IU as palmitate. The Medical Letter recently reviewed vitamin A and warned that no one should take high-dose beta carotene supplements, and that women should not take vitamin A supplements at all during pregnancy or after menopause. Among other things, they said: Vitamin A may also have pro-oxidant effects in vivo. A high intake of vitamin A from supplements and food has been associated with an increased risk of hip fracture in postmenopausal women and with teratogenicity when taken during early pregnancy. A placebo-controlled intervention trial in Finnish smokers found that 20 mg/day of a beta carotene supplement increased the incidence of lung cancer by 18%, which was statistically significant. Another large double blind intervention trial in smokers and asbestos exposed workers, terminated early because no benefit was demonstrated, found that combined therapy with 30 mg of beta carotene and 25,000 IU of vitamin A daily was associated with an increase in the incidence of lung cancer, cardiovascular mortality and total mortality.

The Medical Letter concluded: “A balanced diet rich in fruits and vegetables may be safer than taking vitamin supplements. No biologically active substance taken for a long term can be assumed to be free of risk.”

Isagenix claims to promote weight loss. All “treatments” for [temporary] weight loss work the same way: they get people to ingest fewer calories than they expend. There is no reason to think that a person who restricts calorie intake and exercises will lose any more weight if they add Isagenix products. Diuretic and laxative effects, psychological factors, and enthusiasm for a new method may initially fool people into thinking they have benefited.

Their medical advisor, Becky Natrajan, MD, tells us on a video presentation that she is “excited about results” but she does not say what those results are or why she thinks the results are due to the product rather than to diet, exercise and other factors. Perhaps her funniest argument is that the $5 a day Isagenix costs you is less expensive than open heart surgery. As if it were a simple choice between the two!

She tells you to contact the person who told you about Isagenix. And one of the headings on the website is “Wealth.” There you will find out how you can sell products from your home and become an associate, a consultant or an executive with increasing levels of financial return. This sounds like a typical multilevel marketing scheme, typical of products that can’t be marketed effectively based purely on their merits.

In short, Isagenix is a slick marketing enterprise that lines the promoters’ pockets by selling baseless hope. There is a disclaimer on the website that should be taken very seriously: “These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. These products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.”

  1. Grateful Consumer

    Thank you so much for this! I tried googling 4 different ways to get the actual ingredients and an objective analysis of whether some new evidence showed anything in a supplement could “burn fat” and all I got was pages of links from the company & salespeople–even when I included the word scam–they are very clever in anticipating this charge–until I found you.
    I have read some of Dr. Hall before, but hesitated to send friends the link bc the original website would be kind of overwhelming if not threatening to friends who have heard over & over or just accept alternate myths about energy, thought changing water crystals, etc. as passed on by so many yoga teachers & self-claimed healers as well as pop media. In this format I will be able to share.
    I had gone to her FB page to learn about an Ashtanga yoga teacher I was thinking about taking class with, and she was gushingly claiming she’d effortlessly lost 9 pounds & had more energy with Isagenix, which I’d never heard of. The post’s tone suggested a marketing scheme, and also suggested a lack of basic human physiology knowledge which seems to be alarmingly common in the health industry. Trainers & yoga teachers seem to memorize anatomy but not understand the functions of body organs as scientifically proven. Increasingly I’m realizing what i thought were metaphors are actually their beliefs. Not so sure I want to take her guidance in how to work my body in the rather strenuous practice of Ashtanga. Thanks!

    This isn’t the only company that uses this tactic. Beachbody (maker of some great workout DVDs) is an MLM that sells a product called Shakeology in addition to the workout programs. The vast majority of Shakeology customers are also sales affiliates (or “coaches” as they call them). The shake costs $115 A MONTH(a little less if you are a coach), and the claims that these coaches make are ridiculous, unfounded, and irresponsible. They claim that Shakeology cured their IBS, helps them manage their diabetes, got them off a whole slew of medications, etc. (look at their Facebook page for a small sampling). If you say $115 a month is too expensive, they’ll tell you that a) it’s NOT expensive when you consider people spend that much on Starbucks, and b) well, you save $30 if you sign up as a coach under me. I was intrigued, so I figured I would do some research. EVERY page that I came across about Shakeology was written by a Beachbody Coach. If you type in “Shakeology scam,” you are directed to a site with an article that explains why Shakeology is NOT a scam. Type in “Shakeology pyramid”, “shakeology sucks”, you get articles written by Beachbody coaches saying why Shakeology is NOT those things. You need to be careful with these MLMs. They have a way of brainwashing their sales people

  3. Thank you for operating one of the rare blogs, like mine also, that take the less profitable side of the MLM / Nutritional Scam sector.

    We could be out forcing our relatives to pay thousands of dollars for dangerous products…but it would not be the right thing to do.

    Happy Thanksgiving Weekend,

    IS

    I’ve never done the cleanse, but was thinking about doing so after the holidays. I’m no medical expert, but I am entering into health care as a nurse in the near future and nutrition fascinates me. The hypothesis that neurological syndromes and food allergies are attributed to toxicity *has* been supported by research (see Dr. Theo Colhoun’s work). Differences have been shown between subjects who ingest foods laden with additives and pesticides in contrast with with subjects who eat whole, organic foods. The effects of taking in said toxins can range anywhere from developmentally delayed children to reproductively impaired adults. These statements have been supported by data and research.
    I recently read about the various P450 enzymes and their role in detoxifying our bodies…Could pesticides and additives have an adverse effect on these enzymes? I would love to see the research, but my instincts after reading more into the subject say perhaps. The question pertaining to this post concerning Isagenix supporting proper detoxification or not isn’t my point. My point is that the “old school” thinking of nutrition in the light of “every calorie is the same” needs to be thrown out. Isagenix at least supports people in making healthier choices…Kale instead of candy perhaps. You are what you eat, and heck, if Isagenix gets people to drink a nutritional shake vs eating a happy meal, I’m all for it.

  5. Joe Hallett

    Thank you. Keep up the good work you are doing! Critical thinking is lacking in our society. PLEASE people of the world…pull your head out of the sand and do a little research before trusting a company that wont provide clinical evidence thats its products are safe… or even works for that matter. (unless you believe that putting your head in the sand prevents solar radiation from melting your brain)

  6. david dan

    thank you for the ubiased review of beachbody. i tried the shake at the recommendation of a friend. the problem is, there are many people recommending this product as part of their “multi-level marketing business”. these people are not doctors, but are true believers pushing a product which i believe could have bad side effects for some people. this product really messed with/trashed my system.
    the company is very smart by implementing the multi-level marketing because all of these “so called” internet doctors drain out reason throughout the internet.
    the coaches at beachbody are pushed to recruit other coaches and push this meal replacement shake.

  7. Michele

    My only question is for more information on this statement: “Some of these we know to be useless, some are potentially harmful…”
    Besides the vitamin A you mention, to which other ingredients would you be referring as potentially harmful?

  8. Doc Bunkum

    I see that Isagenix medical advisor, Becky Natrajan, MD, may be “excited about the results”, – but not that excited.

    Apparently she’s bailed ship and found a new home at TriVita.

    “At last, after 12 months of extensive research looking for the “perfect” wellness company and Affiliate opportunity…

    Dr. Becky and Dan Maes have joined forces with TriVita to bring Wellness to the World”!

    “Renowned Medical Doctor and award-winning Marketing Executive have teamed up to bring wellness to the world by harnessing the power of a proven Affiliate opportunity of a lifetime! Dr. Becky Maes (formerly Natrajan) and Dan Maes have embraced TriVita’s mission, superior quality products and proven business model. They are 100% dedicated to your success and helping you experience wellness and create wealth for your life purposes.”

    Same old, same old. Geez…you need a score card to keep track of which “next best greatest opportunity of the month” these professional jumpers are currently working.

  9. No comment from Megan as she moves on to other more receptive sites on which to continue the propaganda crusade. I’m glad sites like this are among a few that do come up in search results with accurate information about these scams. Thank you Tracy, you are on the side of angels 😉

  10. DrJonesy

    I sold Isagenix for a while and had tons of people under me selling it. I was about to receive my first commision check for a huge amount of sales, and I was fired from Isagenix. I had sold one Cleanse kit on eBay, and was told after the fact, that it was not allowed. It had never been stated that ebay was frowned upon. I think the product is not harmful to use, but I also believe that it doesn’t do any good either. Out of the hundreds of sales I had, not a single person ever told me they felt healthier. I actually feel guilty now for selling it to people I cared about.

  11. @DrJonesy — thank you so much for your candor and perspective. I sense that is the experience many people have with Isagenix and other products. There isn’t a lot of proof they work, aside from a possible placebo effect which likely wears off. There is a risk they may in fact be bad for health. But the one thing we know for sure is that when you are selling a product via MLM, it tend to be overpriced, and it tends to be sold to people you care about, who buy it because they are about you and trust you. Thank you again for your story.

  12. D

    I have been living with two people who sell it, for the past 3 months. One of them eats pizza all of the time (2-3 times a week) and he also takes a lot of prescription drugs, ie. Ambien, anti-anxiety meds and others, the product does not seem to help him, obviously. The other sells it full-time and his motivation seems to be money and becoming on of the ‘millionaires’, you know, like the good ‘ole Amway days, remember the ‘millionaires’. He doesn’t seem to care that much about the actual product, except he works night and day on his sales ability and is quite aggressive in convincing people of one thing or another.

    I think a emotional cleanse (therapy) or nice spa vacation would have much better results, and probably cheaper in the long run.

  13. Islander

    I am an Isagenix user, but I’ve refused to get involved in the MLM scheme. The program seemed to work well for me – I lost over 20 pounds over about a month, with actually increased energy, better mental acuity and little to no problems with hunger, save for the actual cleanse days (when you eat nothing but the tiny snacks and cleanse tonic).

    But the products are expensive. I suspect too expensive, given that I can get protein shakes and similar “metabolism boosting” supplements at my local SuperSupplements store. My coach tells me that the difference in price is due to the “trace minerals” and the fact that the whey protein comes from fully organically raised cows in New Zealand. That sounds a bit fanciful to me, but I can’t ignore the fact that the system appears to work for me.

    Now my coach wants me to try Product B. I’ve done enough research on stress and the mind to believe that nutrition is an important part, but *man* that stuff is beyond spendy – $77 bucks for a roughly one-month supply.

    Added with the shakes, snacks and cleanse tonic and it’s easily $300-400 or more each month. I’m all about investing in my health, and I have to agree that spending $10 bucks a day on healthy supplements is better than Starbucks and McDonalds, but I have to imagine there is a more affordable way.

    So, I believe in the system, but I’m looking for a more affordable way. Has anybody transitioned OFF of Isagenix, but continued a similar system using more affordable products?

  14. Tracy Coenen

    Why not put that extra $10 a day toward nutritious foods, instead of some crappy supplements? Eat more fresh fruits and vegetables. That’s certainly a lot better for you than meal replacement nonsense.

  15. Jen

    “I have to agree that spending $10 bucks a day on healthy supplements is better than Starbucks and McDonalds, but I have to imagine there is a more affordable way.”

    Yeah, it’s called Not Spending Ten Bucks Per Day at Starbucks or McDonald’s. It is obviously healthier for both you AND your wallet. No need to feel like you have to substitute the coffee/junkfood for overpriced MLM crap in order to feel better.

  16. Shaun

    Those are all gimmicks and tricks. It’s a big business and obviously people are looking for the next big miracle or “easy” way to be healthy. It all goes back to having a nutritious diet and regular exercise. THAT’S IT!

    1. If your goal is to lose weight, cut back on calories and exercise.

    2. If your goal is to lower blood pressure, cut back on sodium and exercise.

    3. If your goal is to lower cholesterol, cut back on saturated/trans fats and exercise.

    4. If your goal is to lower your blood sugar, cut back on carbs/sugar and exercise.

    5. If your goal is all of the above, eat more fiber and exercise.

    6. If your goal is to lower risk of heart disease (or just to be healthy overall):

    a) Don’t smoke

    b) Exercise daily

    c) Maintain a healthy weight

    d) Cut back on fat, sodium (see 2 and 3)

    e) Eat more veggies/beans, fruits, whole grains and low fat dairy

    People know this, they just need to do it and make it part of their lifestyle.

    Obviously there are people who have medical conditions or strong family history where medication is needed. But the magic bullet as far as weight loss is concerned is calories in, calories out.

  17. Marcy

    Isagenix is all hype! Just eat “clean” foods; organic, non-processed fruits vegetable, whole grains (quinoa, brown rice, etc.)! Yes, the product has nutrients, but there is an absence of research studies. The only studies conducted are those by Isagenix, which is no good. If results are not replicated then how do we know something is really working, and not due to chance. Eat less calories by cutting out processed foods, and enjoy what mother nature gave to us :)..a perspective from a molecular biologist.

  18. Smiley

    I have been looking for negative feedback on Isagenix and am having a hard time finding anything. So glad to find your blog! What gets me is the people that are selling this product..and I have several on my FB page, claim not only can you lose weight, but selling the product has made them incredibly rich! Buying Ferarri’s, huge homes, fishing boats and flying on their ‘private planes’ to speak about the product. Come on already!!!!

  19. Tracy Coenen

    Please understand that MLMs and their reps try really, really hard to ensure that you can’t find anything negative about them. They flood the internet with propaganda, and some even sue people who post negative things.

  20. ItsJustMe

    I was connected to several people on FB that sell this product. They are all claiming the same ‘wealth’ that Isagenix has brought them. One girl claims she has purchased several expensive sports cars, fly’s in a private jet and has an expensive home (posting pictures to prove it). She also claims to be one of the top selling reps, yet her name is nowhere on the Isagenix website. Her pictures appear on other peoples pages as well. Her profile picture has changed from an older blonde woman to a young brunette. Sounds like a fraud to me. This is why I’ve started looking into this product. How can you trust it?

  21. fee

    so glad to see this feed back, here in Australia I am confused at times , I seem to be the only one that does not want to try Isagenix, I am a therapist and I have clients telling me all these great stories how Product B saved lives , from cancer to skin conditions , and it stops you aging with the telomeres , it cost $100 for 100 capsules , it last a month at 4 capsules a day , and yes these people win trips to overseas all the time , and bring a income of $2000 a week from sales , sounds good , hey , .

  22. Mrs Biggs

    I too am also glad to have come across this website. I have not been able to find any information on this product from my own independant research that wasn’t posted on a Facebook page somewhere.
    A colleague was telling me about the product who has lost quite a bit of weight. She says she feels amazing… How could I not want to know more? But, I am cynical by nature and wanted to know more. I guess the things I was wondering were; if this product is so great, why is it only available via MLM methods? Wouldn’t it be available everywhere for everyone, rather than kept quiet? Something just didn’t add up, and I wonder if in fact the colleague is being conned? The more I look, the less I like what I see, almost like a pack mentality from the people involved?

  23. Louise

    Many Thanks for this thread. I to have been searching for (hopefully) unbiased information and am glad I stumbled on this. I guess it’s that age old quote “if it sounds too good to be true…….”

  24. Well said. I have used Isagenix in the past and it is good for a quick weight loss because you cut calories, cleanse days you eat nothing, so yes you lose weight. But it all comes back. I am now finally learning about proper nutrition and exercise, especially cutting sodium and keeping stress levels down. My next move now is to take up yoga which I heard has great stress relieving benefits.

  25. Keith Davies

    Calories in v Calories out, exercise etc etc, these are all the common sense answers to any attempt to lose weight. If you take Isagenix or any other product to SUPPLEMENT your lifestyle then you are more likely to achieve success, so if you look at Isagenix or other SUPPLEMENTS in this context then they will help. Maybe use them as a jumpstart to help you improve other lifestyle habits like the fruit and veggies and exercise. I have never tried this stuff but over the years as a Professional Athlete I have tried many, but they have never been the hook on which I hang my nutritional requirement hat….

  26. Not LeeAnn Werner Jackson

    So happy to see people finally hearing the truth about these products. I have been with Isagenix for 13 years and am tired of the scam being run on customers. The products are no better than typical vitamins that can be bought at Target or Walmart. Further, the claims of financial freedom are completely overblown. Almost no one makes money in Isagenix!

    I am happy to finally have a chance to come clean, and I am glad that this blogger is speaking the truth. Don’t be fooled: the values of integrity and quality are sorely lacking in this company. The “clinical research” that is touted by the company and the reps is nothing more than researchers being paid by Isagenix to come to certain conclusions. Please spread the word!

  27. Scott

    Me thinks someone has misappropriated LeeAnn’s name for those comments… just google her…. :)

  28. Dave

    I doubt you were with Isagenix for 13 years it took you that long to figure out it was a scam? Lol sounds a little weird to me, I can vouch for this product it does work they are great products and yes we are making money and know others that are also making a lot more, obviously your not very informed about this company or you just failed miserably and is just bitter.

  29. Scott

    It is a little sad that doctors prescribe drugs that mask symptoms and not more nutrition as a whole. I have to agree with the “air filter” analogy. We have so much junk food out there with ingredients that are engineered and not necessary and very toxic to our system, yet the FDA does nothing about them. If you look at evolution, non of these ingredients were around until chemists came up with them so we did not “evolve” to process these things. That is where I think we are toxic. Stuff like Red Bull and similar drinks are lauded for the “lifestyle” of all things daredevil, yet nobody talks against it being an incredibly toxic drink along with most other energy drinks. Doritos are still produced with MSG!!! yet nobody says anything about that, which is beyond frightening. So for me, if all the ingredients are natural I think there are other things we should be more focused on. I have tried Isagenix and for me I used it every day for Breakfast and a snack (bar form) at lunch. It helped me to be aware of what I put into my body, so now for me if it didnt come out of the ground then it is not natural is how I eat now. So for that reason I am glad I did the Isagenix. I was looking for nutrition and got an education on awareness of my health so in the end it was a good thing for me.

  30. Scott

    you are so correct Morgan! Which was great 100 years ago — but now it’s overloaded — kinda like taking your household trash and tossing it in the garage — house is great now, but eventually that garage is going to be a problem… :) My car and house have filters in them too…. love your liver!

  31. AgeLessPat

    Please tell me that “common sense” is still alive and kicking! Wow! I have subscriptions to nutrient newsletters, health newsletters, books on “superfoods”, cross-referenced (personal research) not only Product B (where does the name come from?), but have tried to investigate what the “vital herbal nutrients” are that ‘guarantee’ a complete health overhaul–at the cellular level ?! Really? Why sren’t these products available to the (general) public? I trust my personal care physician’s advice…and his advice? Too much of a (good or bad) thing is a waste!!

  32. mirna

    I just started this program. And good to expensive. . I honestly think of going back to my eating Clean and organic shopping at sprouts or wholes food its cheaper then this… I said eat clean organic and lets stop giving our money away to this people. Nothing like eating un package products … :) good luck

  33. Annette

    Scott…..so are you trying to say that our livers are not cleaning out the toxins in our bodies anymore?? Seriuosly? Instead of just telling us your analogies, why don’t you give us scientific proof that the liver doesn’t clean out our toxins like it did 100 years ago!! That is the most crazy thing I’ve heard in a long time. Our livers work great, especially eating healthy foods. Not eating anything and then drinking some magic shake doesn’t make your liver work better! Comparing our bodies to taking the trash only to the garage is laughable. And I’m sure you are laughing all the way to the bank!!! That is if you have made it that far up the pyramid!! If not just keep spilling the nonsense to gullible people and you MIGHT just make it!!

  34. Roger

    I am on day 8 of a 30 Day Isagenix “cleanse” …. it seems to be having some effect , but I’m not sure if I’ll continue after … I hate the feeling of being hungry all the time .
    I’m not sure if not eating for 2 days on a double cleanse is actually good for you … lol …
    I think as a ” kick in the ass ” toward better living it might be ok , but for me not sustainable .
    I’d rather eat healthe real food and do more exercise …
    Completely not interested in the MLM side of things .

  35. Tracy Coenen

    No, not eating for 2 days is NOT good for you. We are supposed to eat. It’s about what you eat… and you should eat FOOD, not these bullshit shakes and pills.

  36. Paul

    Bottom line if you want something to happen for yourself you can do it, you can make it work without all these products. Eat clean, exercise, include a good protein shake from vitamin shop, add a vitamin or two and be determined to exercise with a good program. Have a plan, be a leader don’t have someone feed you like a baby. Don’t forget come up with a meal plan. Do your own research and save big bucks by keeping money in your pocket and not these huge multi marketing companies who want nothing more then your wallet.

  37. Dani

    I wish people would open their eyes a bit and spend more time criticizing and ripping apart the REAL scammers in our world, like Big Pharma whose job it is to keep us sicker than ever and not a product or company that promotes and believes in REAL solutions for a healthy body, whatever the company may be. If any of you actually believe that our bodies can naturally defend themselves against all of the toxins and pollution that is bombarded on us WITHOUT our consent, then good luck to you…you will need it. Start fighting against those making you ill….NOT those trying to at least help! And btw…this lady’s job is to pick apart anything she gets her hands on….open your eyes!

  38. While Isagenix, MonaVie and Beach Body are all MLM scams with outrageous claims, done of what you say is completely false. The human body cannot detoxify itself if someone is eating packaged, processed food loaded with sugar, MSG and other chemicals on a daily basis. The body CAN detoxify itself through intermittent dating and by adding whole, organic foods such as complex carbs, vegetables, a little fruit and lots of H20.

  39. I also wanted to add that medical doctors know very little about nutrition since they only get 1-3 hours in med school. I’d go to an M.D. for Burton advice like i would go to the Cable company to fix my plumbing.

  40. To the people arguing about the liver. Are you unaware of this pesky thing alcoholics get called cirrhosis? The same thing can gain to non-alcoholics if they consume a lot of.sugar and junk foods. Our livers only work when we eat healthy, whole food. Do you honestly think the people who live on fast food and are over 30% BF actually have healthy livers? Seriously?

  41. Lisa

    Gosh this is quite an eye opener! I was talked into doing Isagenix purely because I wanted to shift some weight. I have been on the programme now for 4 days and have lost 1kg already but have not felt good on it at all. Headaches, Nausea, light headedness, and just downright hungry! My Diet before has always been healthy just sometimes have too much of it. My husband says that you loose weight because “you aren’t eating” and yet my Isagenix coach says that everything I need is in the “shake”! To feel lousy on such a product makes me think it can’t possibly be healthy for you in the long run. So all I can say is I have paid for it now so will continue for the 30 day programme but will cancel my Auto ship as the Product is too darn expensive to be on it continuously and I enjoy eating good wholesome food without suffering through just drinking plain old shakes that obviously, from reading the above, don’t work!

  42. Dave

    Either you are getting bad advice from your coach or you are not doing the program correctly, my wife and I have been on Isagenix for over 2 years have lost weight and have never been healthier, there is no reason why you should be hungry you can do your shakes plus your meals make sure taking in enough calories, if your not happy you send your products back and you will get your money back they offer a great money back guarantee. Most that fail on this program either have bad coaching or are not being honest with themselfs and are not doing the program correctly

  43. Tracy Coenen

    Lisa – Don’t let anyone fool you. The Isagenix products are NOT healthy. We are meant to eat nutritious food, and supplement that as necessary. We are NOT meant to ingest shakes full of sugar and nonsense in place of food. Send the crap back and get your money back!

  44. Cameron

    Full of sugar? What shake are you describing? What about the skake is not healthy? What nonsense are you refering to? Back your claims please, or refrain from commenting, even if it is your blog. It is one thing to desparage the business model, it is another to make claims that you are not qualified to make.

  45. Tracy Coenen

    Fructose is sugar, moron. You criticized me for saying that the Isagenix shakes were full of sugar. I responded with the ingredients lists, which shows sugar as the second ingredient…. i.e. the shakes are full of sugar. I didn’t say it was harmful. it’s just not nutritious and the shakes are SHIT that you shouldn’t be using as meal replacements.

  46. Jennie

    Currently experiencing major health issues after only 2 months of using Isagenix products. I’ve heard very similar stories after digging a little deeper. Class action lawsuit sounds about right. I’m really disappointed in myself for not having done better research before using these products.

  47. John

    I would like to see some proof on this allegation, I’ve been using this product for 3 years and lead a very healthy life, I also know close to 20 people doing the same product with great results. Be careful what you say. I’m not convinced what so ever on your claims

  48. Tracy Coenen

    John – She doesn’t owe you any proof. She shared her experience with the product. Take or leave her comments.

  49. Dave

    It’s obvious a lot of these comments are just people with no knowledge about the product in question and putting negative information out about it.

  50. Chel

    interestding that making negative claims is taken at face value, but making positive claims is assumed questionable (or bogus). As a professional fraud investigator, one would assume that (unless biased), your investigative impulse would go both ways….

  51. Tracy Coenen

    Chel – I don’t have an opinion one way or another about whether Jennie is telling the truth. The issue is that she doesn’t owe any explanation or any proof to you Isagenix shills.

  52. Lisa

    Dave in reply to your comment “those that Fail aren’t doing the programme properly” let me assure you I am INDEED doing it correctly! I am nearly at the end of my 30 day cleanse and have only lost 3.5kgs and 15cms I have followed it to a T and all I can say is good for you if you and your wife find this product great. I have also found that those that are “Big” to start with on this programme generally loose a lot quite quickly and it cant be a healthy way to loose. Exercise and wholesome food can generally shift the weight if one sticks to that. I just wanted a helping hand and can say that it wasn’t an enjoyable one! And……Tracy, you are definitely right about the sugar! Do people not know that Sugar is reported as being a Killer? Does not take a rocket scientist to see that!

  53. Chel

    Lisa, you lost 8lbs and nearly 3 inches in less than 30 days and you consider that a failure? By isagenix standards you are correct, they are below average, but for most programs, that would earn you job as a spokesperson! And re sugar, should we avoid fruit? Not all sugar is the bad kind. Best wishes to you in whatever you chose!

  54. You can really tell the economy is in the toilet when the shill factor is increasing with this isa-crapex. More and more people are turning to MLM as their way to try to stay out of the poor house. I used to be a vitamin junkie but after 20 years of discovery realize that real food is the best way to wellness and MLMs s u c k

  55. Tracy Coenen

    The bottom line is that “meal replacement shakes” from any company are not good for you and should not be used. We are meant to eat food, not drink shakes full of crap in place of food. Shills will tell you that these are a great option when you’re pressed for time, but grabbing some fresh fruit or vegetables is equally as easy (probably even easier) and much better for you.

  56. Scott

    Let me know how the eat pure foods works out for you… If you do your homework you will find its no longer enough…if you think Isagenix is a scam that’s your choice…I’ve never been healthier or felt better or permanently released more weight since using Isagenix…

  57. Tracy Coenen

    It’s working out great! Let me guess… you’re on that “nutrients in food have been depleted” bandwagon???? While soil is generally less rich in minerals than it used to be, it is not a problem for us when consuming fruits and vegetables. They still have lots of vitamins in them and are very good for us! Eat good food, take a simple multi-vitamin, and you will get all the nutrients you need. Still no crappy shakes necessary!

  58. Scott

    Well Tracy… having experience in the food industry and seeing what happens to the chemically laden, GMO crap that sits around for months before getting to the produce aisle I would have to disagree with you. Even if the vegetable has some value coming out of the ground by the time it’s gone through the process that value is gone… Oh and the organic profit machine…yep they have your best interests in mind as well…LOL…

  59. Scott

    Best of health to you Tracy…I hope your theories work out for you… I for one will continue to listen and learn from those who are tops in the world regarding these issues…sorry to say your advice is way off the mark…

  60. Chel

    Tracy, thx for the link; good to know the cows are doing well on GMOs (tho in their short life-span, it may be hard to quantify what ‘doing well’ means — hard to ask livestock how they are feeling…). If humans only lived for 20 years before being harvested, I suspect the health statistics would be a bit skewed to the positive also.

    Perhaps your time would be better spent unearthing the problems (scams) in the food production chain, instead of slamming a part of it that is actually scientifically-proven to be helping people. Perhaps it would be more productive if you stuck with accountig and leave the nutrition to the people that actually are Phd’d and published in that field.

    By the way, the nay-sayers of the day once persecuted people for questioning the accepted concept that the world was flat. I suspect I know what camp you would have been associated.

  61. Tracy Coenen

    Scott – No one in the field of nutrition is going to suggest that eating healthy and taking a multi-vitamin is bad for you. No one who has any credibility would honestly say that these crappy shakes are preferable to eating healthy foods and taking a multi-vitamin. Good luck shilling!

  62. Tracy Coenen

    Chel – The multi-level marketing scams like Isagenix are well within my wheelhouse. I am also well-educated enough to know that crappy shakes used as meal replacements are not good for people, and are certainly not as good for anyone as healthy meals plus a daily multi-vitamin. No one with any credibility would ever suggest that it’s a good idea to take the crap that Isagenix sells rather than just eat a healthy diet of fruits, vegetables, lean protein, and whole grains. Good luck shilling!

  63. Laura Matheson

    Very disappointed about not making a dime when I recruited someone two months ago. The products is expensive for Canadians taking and paying on the exchange plus credit card bank transaction fees. I am
    leaving the company but signed up till October so will buy the odd thing like the Omega supreme I take
    daily. I like the taste of the shakes and like getting up to one versus boring cereal. However its all about
    the money for me. Dollar is too bad for CDNs and I was told Isagenix may sell in CDN dollars however
    the price will go up for products!! Goodbye Isagenix. Keeping my money now at all costs.

  64. Dawn S

    It’s been very interesting reading all the feedback on isagenix. I know many people who sell it. I think it’s nothing other than a MLM scam for consultants to make money.The bottom line for real weight loss is, get your butt up and exercise, eat a clean healthy diet and drink plenty of water. There is no magic pill, shake, vitamin, cleansing product out there. My philosophy is, if you can’t read the ingredients in what your eating then don’t eat it!!

  65. I tried this, the guy who was pressuring me to sign up for months laid down the law and said it had to be done now so he could make more money before 5 pm and signed me up under his credit card.
    I did the first week and found the cleanse day HORRIBLE. I don’t understand how you are meant to sign up x amount of people within 30 days, when you don’t really measure or see best results until after 30 days.
    I felt like a sell out and there was no way that I, as a relatively educated person could even begin to try to sell this to my friends when I know healthy eating and exercise work best, release endorphins and keep you HEALTHY AND FIT.
    I admit I got caught up in the hype from this guy and I haven’t told anyone my story until now. I was too ashamed.
    I sent it back and he got the refund.
    On a positive note after 6 months of inactivity it did get me back into the gym and I have lost 5kg, feel strong and am happier than ever with my regular protein shakes and multi vitamin.
    Thanks for reading :)

  66. Emma

    I too have been invited to see and read about the company and all the weight loss success on a facebook blog. I see a lot of successful weightloss, I am happy for them and impressed however no one can answer my questions about what happens after the 30 days, they boast of losing weight without any exercise but what happens when they go back to eating or do they not go back to eating,no one really says, they answered me by saying that they continue to do shakes and it’s their lifestyle now. But what about eating with family,holidays ,etc., one couple boasted how they resisted Thanksgiving dinner with family and just drank their shakes. The cost I feel is very expensive, my friend spends $400 a month and you have to pay a membership fee just to order and then they like you to auto renew every month. How does one you do isagenix and still cook for one’s family as you really can’t have your children doing these shakes. One of customers posted that she was so happy with herself as she resisted the Wendy’s french fries and burgers that she bought for her children. I didn’t get it. You also cannot order off the website you have to go through a representative. You can find some of the products on Amazon and Ebay but they are just as expensive. I think I will just stick to eating well and exercising even if it does not come off as quickly as isagenix. I am glad some of these people have found their fix to losing weight. Is it really healthy I can’t say.

  67. Ken

    I was in poor health and using the Isagenix products helped me lose weight, begin exercising, and make healthier food choices. I continue to use Isagenix products as part of a healthy lifestyle. Unlike Dr. Hall, I am not an MD, but with that being said, many of her criticisms of the Isagenix products are not really accessible to the average person. So, Dr. Hall, I guess since you are writing so much about Isagenix, maybe refer us readers to other health professionals, perhaps in the field of nutrition that can speak with more credibility, to what you are saying.

    With an open mind.
    Ken

  68. Tracy Coenen

    Ken – Isagenix didn’t help you make better food choices or exercise. It’s a crappy product which does little other than convince you to skip meals, which is unhealthy. Substituting shakes for real food is not healthy. And the stupid shakes don’t change your actions. YOU change your actions. Good grief.

  69. Scott

    Tracy, why aren’t you calling out the real scams like vaccines, GMOS, chemo, etc that the rest of the world isn’t buying into? If science is so great why is autism, chronic disease, cancer on the rise? Oh that’s right… How would you get paid? You really think you are fooling anyone? You are just a shill, in your terms, for the real scams… The difference with Isagenix is if I don’t like it I can stop, I don’t have a choice to eliminate the attack on me when my water is fluoridated, or there is GMO’s in that supposed organic food or there are pesticides engineered into the food that doesn’t wash off… Your lack of common sense is stunning… It is next to impossible to eat healthy in America even if you wash your produce you moron!

  70. Scott

    Oh and I love how honest your blog is… Because I disagreed with you in the past you blocked me from posting… Unless I submit with another email… Yep. You are the scam…trying to twist the facts to protect your clients, the real scammers… Who’s the real shill here Tracy?

  71. Tracy Coenen

    Scott – Vaccines, GMOs and chemo are not scams, which is why I have not “called them out.” I’m not a shill for anything. How do I get paid? For providing forensic accounting services. I don’t get paid for this blog.

    No, it’s not impossible to eat health, and yes, washing your produce is helpful.

    No, you haven’t been blocked from posting, and you didn’t need another email. However, You will not be allowed to post if you personally attack me again. I also will not let you post things that are false, so be careful about that.

    And which clients am I protecting? I dare you to name one client of mine, and explain how I am “protecting” them on this blog. Good luck, as you don’t know the names of any of my clients. I will give you a hint… none of my clients have anything to do with vaccines, GMOs, or chemo.

  72. Scott

    So how do you explain the rise in autism, cancer, diabetes, chronic illness in America? Why not put you forensic skills to work investigating this issue? And these all started to increase right around the same time as the introduction of GMOS, increased vaccination, antibiotic farming, pesticide laden farming, etc… And great I won’t attack you but you are the one who is attacking anyone here who has had a positive experience with Isagenix, because they must be a shill…thats what you called me…that’s not an attack? And interesting that when I tried to reply with my previous email I could not but when I changed it I could…

  73. Tracy Coenen

    Scott – Your inability to use the internets it not my fault or my problem. You’re one of those conspiracy theorists. There is no link between vaccinations and autism, yet you will ignore the science and claim there is. I am not going to spend time debunking your non-science. It’s a waste of my time, because you are not going to believe science anyway.

    Are you unaware of what forensic accounting is? It has to do with numbers, not medicine. Find me someone who wants to pay me to be a forensic accountant investigating medicine, and I’m happy to do that.

    Yes, you’re a shill for Isagenix. That absolutely IS an attack on you. It’s an attack for two reasons. One, you are trying to sell a scam and should be ashamed of yourself. I have no problem attacking scammers. Two, I’m allowed to attack whomever I want, since this is my site. I guess that’s the benefit of running a site… I get to make the rules.

    Please go harass someone else. You are done here. :)

  74. Scott

    Tracy, I have been watching this… Thanks for proving who you really are… I hope nobody takes you seriously… You have zero credibility…

  75. Tracy Coenen

    Of course you’ve been watching this, Scott! You’re participating in it. (But how fun that you tried to sock puppet to make it look like someone supports you!!!)

    I have plenty of credibility with the people who matter. It is not my goal to have credibility with MLM shills. MLMs are scams on consumers ,and those who promote these scams are evil. I do not need or want any sort of affirmation or endorsement from such people.

  76. BShep

    I’ve lost a total of 20 pounds on Isagenix. This is partially due to Isagenix and partially due to working out and tracking my food log and paying close attention to what I’m eating. At first I refused to do the cleanse days because I don’t like NOT eating, but, the cleanse days have helped me drop those pesky last few pounds. I do agree that you can’t stay on Isagenix forever and you need to also learn how to eat whole, healthy, unprocessed foods. The meal replacement shakes are just so EASY for me, which is why I do it. I figure its better to fix a quick shake than going through the drive-through when I’m short on time. I think a lot of people realize or are skeptical if the products are legit, but, if you want to lose weight it makes it easier, which is all I care about right now! The sales aspect of the company IS annoying, and what I choose to take and ingest into my body is my choice, and I wouldn’t want to push this on others and promote it as “healthy” if I wasn’t 100% sure- I’m not a doctor or a nutritional expert.

  77. Tracy Coenen

    Doing cleanses doesn’t give you sustainable weight loss. You’re mostly just losing water and otherwise appearing to lose weight because you are depriving yourself. WIthin days, it all comes back. So honestly, starving yourself for those days is unhealthy and mostly useless.

    A meal replacement shake is possibly better than fast food (although you can make better choices depending on the restaurant), but is certainly worse than normal, reasonably healthy food. Drinking stupid shakes filled with sugar and other crap just isn’t good for you. It’s easy, but it’s certainly not healthy. Not even when these companies lie and tell you IT’S ALL NATURAL!!!

    The bottom line with every single one of these “health and wellness” companies is that they’re shilling mediocre products which generally aren’t good for you. Skip this overpriced crap and just eat real food. The real food doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive. Just stick toward unprocessed stuff.

  78. John

    Hahaha… Tracy what are you even doing participating in this space? Just about every statement you have made is based in uneducated opinion not fact. You are the one misleading people. Before you blog you really should know what you are talking about.

  79. Tracy Coenen

    Aw John…. I am well versed on the facts of Isagenix and other “wellness” MLMs. It is my pleasure to be able to provide opinions that are well rooted in the facts of these companies. Of course, those facts are never revealed by the companies themselves, which is why I have to expose them here. :)

  80. Geoff

    Isagenix what a croc, i weighed 162kilos and turned my life around by, eating hood healthy foods and a lot of exercise. I now weigh 93 kilos. No supplements.. No…..

  81. Whole30Love

    My sister and mom just started Isagenix, and they love it. I’ve been trying to get them to eat healthy for the past year, but they’ve been too lazy. Isagenix just seems like a way for people to lose weight with minimal effort. Sure, it is harder to actually take ten to fifteen extra minutes to actually make a meal, but it’s so much better for you. That being said, I do get that sometimes people need a nudge in the right direction, so I get the appeal. There are just so many other options out there!

  82. shell

    So I signed up for the 30 day cleanse and lasted 3 days…my stomach couldn’t take the shakes and other supplements. I have since sent back my stuff and am waiting for a refund. Meanwhile I am feeling disappointed in my PT who recommended this stuff. 11g of sugar per shake? Sunflower oil? Time to find a new PT! Thanks for this article…wish I had seen it a month ago! :)

  83. Tony

    I am telling you as a person who no longer uses Isagenix because I have developed an intolerance for fasting. So I have no vested interest in promoting these products. In my younger days in 2006, it helped me to lose 85 pounds as part of a diet program. I used the 9 day program probably about 4 times during that stretch and an average of about 13 real pounds, not water weight.

    Now am I necessarily recommending it, no. As I do believe it to be not a once size fits all type of solution to the obesity epidemic. But for one who understands their underlying weigh loss issues and is under the care of a physician, this program may help jump start your weigh loss journey. The program does however require will power, it won’t be easy. I did however find it comforting that program was only 9 days.

  84. Tracy Coenen

    Just to be clear, Tony didn’t lose 85 pounds with Isagenix. He lost 13 pounds with Isagenix, starving himself for 36 days. That was unhealthy weight loss, and therefore not recommended. (Especially not if you want to keep the weight off.)

  85. April M

    that is not even saying what goes inside the corporate site. Bigots calling people monkeys is okay? they have a reputation of paying off employees or using the clause that AZ is a at will state making the work atmosphere unbearable with trumped up charges and causing employees to quit. Knowing they cannot legally fight back due to they rack up billable hours. I use to work in their customer service department and knew that if you made your boss looked good you were good. The moment that made them look back the retaliated. So treating and cheating people is nothing that Isagenix has not only done to their customers but also to their employees. Equal opportunity employer that’s funny. They will also throw other MLM’s under scrutiny for things they try to claim as to try to sway attention away from them turning other businesses in…..

  86. April M

    I have been at events that executive team was drunk and it was the VP of HR. from what I found out later on reputable that is a joke. Plus they have family members that work in the same department when it clearly states in employee handbook that they cannot. If you really dig deep you will find the as many people as they say they improved creating wealth and happiness you will find there are just as many the wrecked…….

  87. Bobbi

    I started using Isagenix in Jan. by the suggestion of a friend in the Medical field. I was skeptical b/c to tell you the truth, I’ve sworn off Direct Sales & am not interested in MLM. I did, however, trust this friend & her professional opinion of the system because she understood my struggles. While I did have some weight to lose, I was tired of body aches, being tired w/ total lack of energy & struggling terribly w/ sleep for over 2 years not to mention lots of stomach issues. I’m 49 but refuse to believe it’s just part of getting “old”! I’ve had numerous tests done thinking it must be my thyroid or possible Lymes Disease. All testing came back normal. After trying Isagenix, I not only have lost 20lbs (10 to go to reach my personal goal of 120lbs) but am sleeping like a baby, have unbelievable energy & the body aches are GONE!! No more moaning when I crawl out of bed in the morning.
    I still DISLIKE the fact that Isagenix is a MLM Co & do feel the products could be sold for less if the commissions weren’t being paid but it is what it is & if I want to feel this good, then I’ll continue to use them. My grocery bill has drastically dropped as I was told it would but how can I put a price tag on good health. I listen to my body & my body tells me this is a good thing. I won’t argue w/ the above posts b/c I know little about nutrition but again, I listen to what my body tells me.
    I’m still not interested in promoting the System as a business BUT I will continue to use it.
    BTW…..I stumbled on this site by searching Purium vs Issgenix b/c someone suggested I look into Purium. Not sure I can wake to a green shake in the morning?? I so look forward to my Isagenix yummy Choc. Shake.

    I’d also like to add that while I know eating healthy whole organic foods is best, it’s just not something I know enough about to do. Too many contradicting stories. I need something easy & quick & Isagenix fits the bill!

  88. Tracy Coenen

    Bobbi – You’re saving money on groceries while spending money on shitty, unhealthy shakes. Good luck with that! You’d be much better off eating real food, focusing on fresh, unprocessed food. But you’d rather abuse your body. The weight will all come back when you stop drinking this crap.

  89. clyde roberts

    If the people using their products like them and are happy with the results, how could it be a scam? If the person selling the products and the person buying the products are both benefiting in some way, who are you to say that this is a scam and is wrong?

  90. Tracy Coenen

    Clyde – Use your common sense. If the pushers of these products are making false medical claims, and the products don’t do all these magical things, THAT’S A SCAM. The person buying the products is not benefiting!

  91. LD

    There have been several people that ‘friended’ me on FB all within a few days. Once I started seeing the same pictures posted all within a few minutes of each other I stated looking a little further. They all post pictures of their private jets, expensive cars and trips all claiming that Isagenix gives them millions a year. Turns out these profiles are all created by the same man. (all the profiles are of good looking women). All I had to do was google the images and found they are pulled from the internet. THAT’S what I call a scam!

  92. Amy

    Bobby, have to respond yes but you are not doing anything special its just whey with some vitamins. So along with the rest best bet is to do to a nutritionist that will give you a better life style other than taking shakes every day…. really anyone will lose weight if you reduced the calories that you are taking in and increase your physical activity. Keep the extra money that you would be putting into other peoples pockets giving them the ability to buy those cars and trips and do something for you family……and yourself

  93. Diana

    One of the biggest problems I have had with Isagenix, is the lack of medical knowledge those selling it have…. I went on Isagenix after being told how fantastic it was…. I had a VIOLENT allergic reaction, esophagus burning, migraine so severe I almost went into the ER for… and the gal selling it kept telling me it was a “detox” symptom… after the next shake, esophagus burned again… she called someone “higher up,” and they kept telling me to slow down, not to take the accelerator, etc.etc…. One more time and I was done.. had to take benadryl, heartburn meds.. anything to stop the burning….. Now, I realize that my case is rare; however, unless these people are MD’s, nutritionists, or have clear access to doctors…. PLEASE don’t try to tell me others these are detox symptoms, when clearly they have no idea what is going on …The same thing happened to someone else about two months ago…..Scary…. When I wrote one negative comment about my experience with Isagenix on facebook, I was blocked and later told by a distributor, “Isagenix doesn’t want any negative comments posted about their products, so I had to delete it.” That sealed the deal for me, and I then began to see that it was about their reputation and MLM, rather than a person’s health…. I appreciate that so many are dropping pounds and feeling better, but seriously… we live in a free country, free speech.. you put your product out there, expect both negative and positive reviews……. FYI.. after seeing some of the ingredients in the isagenix shake…… one of them is ASPERIGILLIUS, which is a form of mold.. I am HIGHLY allergic to mold… and yes, there is fructose, which is the first ingredient…. I was told by my doctor, which is a functional medicine doctor that I trust… to be cautious of some of these types of products that help people detox and dump weight quickly… If they go off… it can be disastrous….It can throw your adrenals, thyroid glands into fatigue…….
