Medical Doctor Commends Recent Isagenix Clinical Trial

Dr. Messina finds Isagenix study design is scientifically sound.
By Nicholas Messina, M.D.
I was the medical director for an independent research facility where I served as the principal investigator on numerous clinical trials sponsored by many of the Fortune 500 pharmaceutical companies. These trials involved hypertension, diabetes, obesity, hyperlipidemia, osteoarthritis, depression, and chronic pain among others. I was also the vice-chairman of an IRB, which is an independent ethics review board, where my function was to review pharmaceutical company research protocols, to ensure sound scientific design and human subject safety. It is from this experience that I wish to comment on the recent clinical trial sponsored by Isagenix.
I had no role in the planning or implementation of this study and have only recently evaluated the scientific design based on results published in Nutrition & Metabolism (2012,9:98), and Nutrition Journal (2012,11:98). I applied the same methodology as if I were evaluating this trial for an IRB.
The design was a scientifically sound, randomized, double-arm study, which consisted of two dietary phases. The first phase consisted of a two-week weight maintenance period. The second phase was an eight-week weight loss period. One arm consumed a standard “heart healthy” diet six days a week, plus a fasting day containing a placebo drink. The second arm consumed two liquid meal replacements—IsaLean Shakes—and a 400-to-600 Kcal low-glycemic meal for six days a week, plus a fasting day where the subjects consumed Cleanse for Life. Both arms received nutritional counseling and prescribed caloric intake was similar. The protocol monitored adherence with diets, and maintenance of physical activity habits.
The study had appropriate inclusion, exclusion criteria, as well as clear objectives. The end points selected were relevant not only to scientists, but also to regulators and consumers. The main endpoints were body weight, body composition, and cardiovascular risk. The assessments used for analysis were state of the art, and were quantifiable. These assessments tracked body weight and body composition changes, plasma lipid changes, LDL particle size changes, cardiovascular risk parameter changes, and change in visceral and subcutaneous adipose tissue area (by MRI), all during the weight-loss phase.
The study was conducted at the University of Illinois at Chicago. This institution has a stellar reputation for conducting research. Dr. Krista Varady, an assistant professor at the UIC College of Applied Health Sciences, led the study. Dr. Varady is an experienced researcher and has over 30 peer-reviewed publications. The Office for the Protection of Research Subjects at University of Illinois at Chicago approved the experimental protocol and all volunteers gave written informed consent to participate.
The bottom line is that this was a well-designed, scientifically sound, protocol that was carried out at a major university research center by a skilled, published researcher. This was not the common observational study that is often seen when evaluating nutritional products. This study has been published in two peer-reviewed journals thus far and Dr. Varady’s discussion of the results is factual and objective.
The findings show that the Isagenix arm displayed greater adherence, 56 percent greater reduction in average weight loss, 47 percent greater reduction in average body fat loss, and twice as much visceral fat loss. The Isagenix arm also had a more pronounced lowering of lipid indicators of cardiovascular risk. These beneficial modulations in cardiovascular risk can be mediated by reductions in visceral fat mass. These results are similar to the results I have been seeing for the past three years with my own patients.
I often hear disparaging comments concerning sponsor-funded clinical research. The fact of the matter is that over 75 percent of all clinical trials are sponsor funded. If we depended on government funding for all scientific research we would not have the breakthroughs that exist today, and in truth our world would appear very different.  It is important therefore to ensure that research is conducted in the most ethical and professional manner possible so that the results will be valid and credible. It is my opinion that Isagenix has complied with these criteria in conducting this trial.
Dr. Messina
Dr. Messina became a board certified family practitioner in 1985. He has been in both solo and group practice. He later served as the director for an integrative medical facility an went on to become the medical director for an independent research facility. While there, he participated as the principal investigator on numerous clinical trials sponsored by many of the Fortune 500 pharmaceutical companies. These trials involved hypertension , osteoarthritis , hyperlipidemia, diabetes,obesity, depression , chronic pain, and anxiety among others. He served as the vice-chairman of the board for an IRB, which is an independent ethics board, overseeing safe scientific design and human subject safety , in proposed pharmaceutical research. He is the author of several publications in scientific journals. He left research and now does independent consulting for the pharmaceutical and healthcare industries. Originally skeptical of using Isagenix products, he decided to try them in April 2009 after one of his patient lost considerable weight. He now uses Isagenix products to maintain a healthy weight and recommends that other health professionals use them in their practice.

Banishing the Deadliest Fat

Banishing the Deadliest Fat

Belly fat
The most dangerous form of body fat is intra-abdominal fat, or visceral fat, which contributes to total belly fat.
If you’re like many Americans, when you were younger you were able to eat with gusto and without a care in the world. Even if you weren’t working out or exercising on a regular basis many of us could seemingly consume whatever, whenever. But now, the days and nights of youth-filled binges are long gone and you may actually exhibit the dreaded “middle-age spread.” Or worse, you are overweight or obese. Today, obesity is the single most important health issue facing the United States. More than one-third of adults and almost 17 percent of children and adolescents are obese. That’s according to new data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, released from The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
The excess adiposity (“fatness”) that exists in obese individuals is associated with serious adverse health effects including increased susceptibility to cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes. With obesity-related healthcare spending at about 5 to 10 percent of all health care costs, it’s a problem that clearly stresses an already unstable economy.
Obesity is a complex, dynamic process involving genes and hormones; however, the most amendable lifestyle factor is simply our excessive calorie consumption relative to our energy expenditure. Not surprisingly, according to a 2010 consumer survey, 55 percent of us are actively trying to lose weight. But to address the issues of prevention, treatment, and lifestyle factors, you need to understand body fat–what it is, what it does, and how different types of body fat are associated with health and disease.
Body Fat is an Active Endocrine Organ
Previously, body fat was thought to be just that: fat. However, scientists have known for some time that body fat is indeed no less an organ than the liver or kidney due to its metabolic activities, its target by hormones, and its ability to secrete cytokines—those proteins with hormone-like effects. Body fat comes directly from our diet. Foods contain varying levels of carbohydrates, proteins, and, of course, fat. Alcohol, too, provides potential energy, more than the other macronutrients except for fat, that contributes to body fat.
Now, when examining body fat and body composition, researchers have generally divided fat into either subcutaneous or visceral fat. Subcutaneous fat is fat accumulated in the lower body, often visualized as producing a “pear shaped” appearance. This body shape is more frequently associated with the adiposity of women. In contrast, visceral fat is the fat within your belly (not the fat hanging over your belt) and is associated with the “apple shaped” appearance observed more frequently in men. Visceral fat is also known as central or abdominal fat.
In general, visceral fat is a relatively small proportion of total body fat. Why is it so important? It is chiefly because, unlike subcutaneous fat, visceral fat bathes the liver, kidneys, pancreas, and other organs that are necessary for maintaining optimal health and wellness. Because of its proximity, this type of fat has serious implications on health.
Visceral Fat is Inflammatory
Visceral fat is deleterious to health also because it is metabolically very active, causing low-grade inflammation within the body. In obese individuals, visceral fat consists of fat cells (adipocytes) that stimulate and secrete a variety of potent chemicals as well as activating cellular pathways that are implicated in disease. For example, visceral fat can stimulate the production and release of adipokines such as tumor necrosis factor and interleukins, which are potent pro-inflammatory mediators. These molecules travel to both neighboring and distant cells stimulating recruitment of other cells, generating yet more pro-inflammatory mediators and causing a profound cascading event. Visceral fat accumulation is also associated with insulin resistance, which is a primary factor in type 2 diabetes and other obesity-related conditions. Adipocytes in visceral fat can also increase proteins that promote additional fat storage, a process known as adipogenesis. Visceral fat accumulation in the liver is also a precursor to much more serious liver problems such as scarring (cirrhosis), and even liver cancer. The cumulative effect of these pathophysiological events causes glucose impairment, increased triglycerides, altered lipoprotein balance, and high blood pressure—collectively comprising the metabolic syndrome, a hallmark for cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes among other associated health risks.
What Can Be Done to Reduce Visceral Fat?
Luckily, there are things that can be done to reduce visceral fat, but not without effort. First, the individual must lose weight. Exercise is certainly one of the most effective lifestyle interventions for reducing visceral fat. In one recent study, researchers found that aerobic exercise alone significantly reduced visceral fat by 12 percent (1). Next, loss of visceral fat requires modifications from a typical high fat, high-calorie consumption pattern.
Among nutrients targeted for assisting us in promoting fat loss are dietary fiber and protein. In fact, a recent study found that intake of soluble fiber was directly associated with reductions in visceral fat (2). Additionally, consumers of Isagenix products already know about the great features of our whey protein-based products such as IsaLean Shakes and IsaPro. Among the myriad of benefits of whey protein that will help individuals reduce their visceral fat include whey’s satiating properties, compared with carbohydrates, and its positive effects on metabolism. An increase in dietary protein also facilitates muscle protein synthesis, which has the additional benefit of stimulating body metabolism. Even better would be to incorporate the Isagenix Cleansing and Fat Burning System into an overall dietary strategy to metabolize visceral fat. In fact, a review of the literature by Krista Varady at the University of Illinois-Chicago has found that either daily caloric restriction or intermittent fasting reduces stubborn visceral fat by 5 to 15 percent (3). Since both the 30- and 9-day fat burning and nutritional cleansing systems feature aspects of caloric restriction and intermittent fasting it makes perfect sense that the Isagenix way would help reduce toxic, health-robbing visceral fat.

Welcoming the New Year is more than just champagne toasts, funny hats and noisemakers, and watching the ball drop. Also part of bringing in 2013 should be reflecting on and remembering the most influential happenings of 2012. In that spirit, we bring you the links to the 10 most popular Isagenix health stories that came out of 2012:
1.  Isagenix Clinical Study Published in Peer-Reviewed Journal
Probably one of the biggest happenings in the Isagenix science world was the completion and publication of the clinical study done at University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) that involved Isagenix products. Not only was the study published in a prestigious scientific journal. But the results showed that the Isagenix system is the way to go for improved health and weight loss.
2.  7 Ways New IsaLean Shakes Are More Nutritious Than Ever
Another major happening in 2012 at Isagenix was the release of the new IsaLean Shakes. The improvements are numerous, and after reading this article it’s easy to see how the world’s best shake has gotten even better.
3.  New, Third-Generation Product B
We can’t talk about new product happenings in 2012 without mentioning the release of the new and improved Product B. John Anderson has been a busy man, and that means we all benefit with more potent tools in the quest to age youthfully.
4.  The New Isagenix Brain and Sleep Support System
Also released in 2012 was the Brain and Sleep Support System—supporting both a healthy brain and good night’s rest for optimal health. Listen in as Dr. Michael Colgan discusses the features and benefits of this new system and products.

6.  SCULPT Away Your Deadly Belly Fat
Visceral fat firmly established itself in 2012, along with the dangers of it. Not too much of a worry though, because Isagenix may be one of the best defenses against visceral fat, in more ways than one.
7.  Why Use New Zealand Whey? Grain-Fed Cows Are Sick
If there’s one lesson to walk away from 2012 with, it may be that not all protein is created equal. This is why Isagenix sources protein from one of the most pristine and best places possible—New Zealand. Learn why New Zealand protein is the best of the best, and you can even download a handy-dandy flyer that sums it all up.
8.  Interview with Dr. Phillips on Whey Vs. Soy
Speaking of protein, and why any old protein will not do, this interview with one of the world’s most prolific nutrition researchers will make you realize the superiority of whey protein.
9.  Nature’s Answer to Stress

Isagenix with Thyroid condition

Isagenix with Thyroid condition

Our Body Cleansing and Fat Burning System was designed to address the five main reasons we retain fat and become overweight and or develop health challenges.

To relax your nervous system and reduce stress

Cleanse the body of toxins at a cellular level

For stubborn weight loss or if you have a thyroid challenge

Provide outstanding nutrition with 248 properly balanced nutrients

Build lean muscle

Even when life is busy and you don't have time to eat healthly, your Isagenix products will give your body the nutrients you need for optimal health.

Many people with Thyroid condition have difficulty losing weight and have already accepted the fact that because they have thyroid condition, they will never lose weight. They are required to take medication for their thyroid condition. While I cannot guarantee that body cleansing and fat burning system will work for you because every person has a different reaction to it. What I can tell you is how they used Isagenix with their thyroid condition and had successful weight loss and hopefully this will work for you. This is NOT a diet but a cleansing product to get rid of toxins in your fat cells and the side affect is major weight loss. Isagenix has a 30 days money back guaranteed so what do you have to lose to try it??

Isagenix has two program: 9-Day and 30-Day Program Plan. Alot of people have had huge success with 9-Day Program but with thyroid condition, I think you need to start off easy with 30 day Plan. 30-Day Program works best because it takes about 2 or 3 weeks to see results.

IsaPro Supplemental Protein Product is part of Isagenix but it is NOT included with 30-Day program. IsaPro target for those who has stubborn weight loss or if you have a thyroid challenge. You will have to order it separately so be sure to include that.

30 Day Program has the following:
4 Canister of Vanilla or Chocolate Shake
Cleanse For Life
Ionix Supreme
Fat Accelerator
Energy Packets
Vanilla or Chocolate Snacks
One Program Guide
Measurement Tape
Dr. Becky Natrajan’s CD, “Why Cleanse? Why Isagenix? Why Cleanse for Life?”

You add 2 scoops of IsaPro with your Vanilla or Chocolate Shake for Breakfast and Dinner.

If you are taking Synthroid medication, other people have a hard time losing weight with Isagenix because of the interaction between the drug and the cleansing product. Dr. Dennis Harper recommended Armour Thyroid which is a natural product. Print out the ingredients of Isagenix and IsaPro and show it to your doctor. Ask him to switch your medication to Armour Thyroid and to monitor your progress.

The cost for 30-Day Isagenix Program is $269 wholesale. This is far cheaper than Jenny Craigs, Weight Watchers, Slim Fast, and Nutrition System. Isagenix is all natural cleansing and doesn't use processed food laden with chemicals. See below to see chart comparsion.

The cost of dieting for a week
Diet Weekly menu cost ($)* Percent over national average
Jenny Craig 137.65 152.8
NutriSystem 113.52 108.5

What Health Professionals Are Saying About the Isagenix Clinica lStudy

What Health Professionals Are Saying About the Isagenix Clinica lStudy

Health professionals speak
out about Isagenix study.

As you may have heard (or read here and here), a
clinical study showing the Isagenix system to be
superior to a leading “heart healthy” diet for weight
loss and visceral fat loss was recently published in
two prestigious peer-reviewed publications.
Isagenix Chief Science Officer Suk Cho, Ph.D., had
a chance to get reactions about the results from
some of the revered health professionals of
Isagenix at this year’s New Year’s Kick Off (NYKO)
event. Here are some quotes from the event:

“It was absolutely astonishing. We had
seen the results in the real world, but the
thing that really struck me was the visceral
fat loss. As physicians we know that
visceral fat is a major predictor of mortality
and disease… [In many studies] there is
argument over what is real and what is not.
But [Isagenix] used all physiological
measurements, which means they
measured real things that you can’t fake—the fat loss was measured by water
submersion, you had MRI studies, you took
blood work. It was so well-documented
that it actually embarrassed the heart-healthy diet.” Paul Anderson, M.D.,

“I was so very impressed and I am so
proud to be a part of the group that has
produced this research and get two
publications in really good peer-reviewed
journals. That says something about
Isagenix that you will not find in any other
company that I know of, any other network
marketing company, and that’s just the
beginning.” Michael Colgan, Ph.D.

“This study is a big deal, guys. I know a
little bit about clinical research. To
reiterate what Dr. Anderson was saying,
this was well-designed, at a major
research facility, by a renowned researcher
that is published. The results weren’t just
good, they kicked butt. I mean, really, they
were impressive… [The results] are nicely
summarized for you in a flyer. When you
are talking to your physician, just ask him
if he has nay patients looking for weight
loss and what is he currently doing. Would
he be interested to see the results of a
clinical study that was just done by a
nutritional company? And see if he’ll take a
look at it. I think it will carry a lot of clout.”
Nick Messina, M.D.

How's your New Years Resolution Going

ResolveTo Use Isagenixf or 66Days For Real Change

Habits are more likely to
stick if kept at least 66
days, according to

We have all experienced it before. Your New Year’s
Resolution to eat healthier starts off strong, but it’s
not long before for a small “cheat day” here and
there turns into every day being a cheat day. If you
really want to make a change in your diet, resolve
to use Isagenix for 66 days. Why 66 days? Science
shows that is how long it takes to create a new

A study published in the European Journal of
Social Psychology investigated the key factors in
creating and breaking habits and how we can set
ourselves up for new patterns of behavior. The
study included 96 subjects who chose an eating,
drinking, or activity behavior to carry out daily for
12 weeks. During the study, subjects completed
self-report surveys which indicated whether or not
the behavior was carried out daily and level of
difficulty to perform the new habit.

Using these data, the researchers were able to
identify the average length of time it took for
participants to complete the habit automatically,
with ease and confidence. Although the range
showed variation that may be due to different
levels of difficulty in adopting or discontinuing the
chosen habit, the average time it took for subjects
to feel confident in their habit change was 66 days.

So if you are really looking to make a lifestyle
change, make a commitment to use Isagenix for 66
days. By that time, you are more likely to feel
confidence in your healthier eating habits and less
tempted to indulge in the all-too-frequent “cheat

Now, getting through those 66 days may still have
its challenges. Follow these tips to turn your New
Year’s resolution into a lifestyle solution:

1. Eat a Protein-Rich Breakfast. A high protein
breakfast enhances weight loss by curbing your
appetite so you eat less later in the day.
Additionally, muscle is metabolically active and
burns more calories than other tissues such as fat.
The number one excuse for skipping out on a
balanced breakfast is lack of time. With Isagenix,
“fast food” takes on a new meaning. Isagenix
IsaLean Shakes provide a quick and easy way to
get 24 grams of undentaured protein you need to
start the day off right.

2. Take Small Steps. Instead of swearing off ever
eating a cookie again, take small steps to achieve
your goals. Focus on the week ahead. What are
your goals for the week? Maybe you want to try out
the new Zumba class at the gym or commit to only
going out to lunch on Friday with your colleagues.
Then, challenge yourself even more the next week.
Build momentum as the weeks progress, rather
than lose it.

3. Beat Stress. Everyone deals with stress
differently; however many people turn to food to
suppress their feelings of anxiety or unhappiness.
This form of emotional eating can have serious
repercussions for your waistline and ultimately
your health. There is no way you can completely
avoid stress, but you can prime your body to
manage stress in ways that are less harmful. In
addition to incorporating stress managing habits
such as mediation into your life, the combination of
adaptogenic botanicals in Ionix Supreme can help
protect the body from the harmful effects of stress.

Isagenix provides you with the support and tools
you need to say no to temptation and stick with
your resolution for a healthier life.
