What Exactly is Nutritional Cleansing ?

FACT #1: Our body is rebuilding itself at a rate of a billion new cells a minute. To put this into perspective consider this: it would take you 33 years to count to a billion! These new cells each require essential nutrients every single day. What does that mean? When you hear the word essential, it means ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY FOR THE BODY TO FUNCTION.

Your body is cannot create approximately 90 essential nutrients ~ they MUST come from your diet. What most people don’t realize is that 60 of these essential nutrients are trace minerals. Nutritional Cleansing begins with nourishing your body every day with the fuel that it needs.

FACT #2: If you do not provide all of the essential nutrients in your diet every day, the body must break itself down. For those of us who don’t get 10 servings of fruits and vegetables every day, this could be a real problem. For example, if you do not consume enough calcium, where does your body store calcium? That’s right, in your bones. The new cells will take the necessary calcium that is needed from your bones. You’ve heard of Osteoporosis? Take a look at the photo and you’ll see what I mean.

If you do not get enough protein, the body will break down muscle to deliver the necessary amino acids. (Your heart is a muscle!) The the amino acids in protein provide much more than just muscle mass. They give structure to your internal organs, they allow red blood cells to carry oxygen, they manufacture immune cells, neurotransmitters and enzymes and much more. The same goes for all of those 60 trace minerals. We depend on minerals to activate all cellular function, and without these minerals there is no life.

FACT #3: The body cannot absorb vitamins without the presence of minerals. Nutrients must be bio-available, which means the body is able to digest and absorb them a high percentage of the time. The absorption rate is determined by many complex components. There must be a variety of vitamins and minerals plus other essentials, combined in a certain way to provide optimal balance. For instance, you need vitamin D3 to absorb calcium, and vitamin E should be taken with vitamin A in order to protect it from being damaged in the intestines. They all work together to provide an ideal environment for the body to function and perform at it’s very best.

FACT #4: Some foods block the absorption of vitamins and minerals. Sugar depletes vitamin C, causes chromium and copper deficiencies, and inhibits the absorption of calcium and magnesium. High Fructose Corn Syrup depletes chromium, magnesium, zinc and copper. Many fruits, vegetables and grains contain phytates, which keep your body from absorbing niacin, zinc, iron, chromium, copper, magnesium, manganese and calcium. I am not a biochemist by any means, but I wanted you to see that there’s quite a bit going on behind the scenes.

The Isagenix Nutritional Cleansing System has been developed using the latest ground-breaking science, supporting the body on a cellular level by providing the highest quality, most absorbable organic whole food nourishment available, so that the body can function

the way it was designed to.

nutritional cleansing is not a diet

Why Diets Fail

A diet will slow your metabolism. When you deprive your body by reducing calories, you will lose weight, but you are also losing vital lean tissue and muscle mass. Muscle loss slows your metabolism, making it difficult to burn fat because your body literally goes into starvation mode. It will lock onto the fat, which is it’s source of fuel, for survival.  When you eat normally again you will gain the weight back even faster because your body is built to protect itself, and by reducing your calories and nutrition you have put it on high alert. This is one of the reasons why most people gain back all the weight they lost and put on more.

A diet will not satisfy your hunger. Your body is designed to signal you when it needs nourishment. No amount of willpower can help you overcome a lack of nutrition. The body is in control, and it will send you all kinds of warning signs: fatigue, stress, headaches, irritability, inflammation, and eventually illness. Do not ignore what your body is telling you.

A diet is about restriction. Who wants that? Who is going to live the rest of their life feeling deprived? Eventually we all break, and then it all gets undone. All those weeks “being good” and  then one day, you just snap.


Let’s take a look at your low calorie diet which is pretty darn healthy. You’re doing all the right things: eating more fruits and vegetables, cutting back on carbs, watching your sodium intake, getting more exercise, all the things we’ve heard that doctor’s recommend, aka the Heart Healthy Diet. 

 Isagenix vs. “Real Food.” 

nutritional cleansing for optimal healthWe did a clinical study comparing the Isagenix Nutritional Cleansing System with the Dr. recommended Heart Healthy Diet.

Nutritional Cleansing Clinical Study

STOP! Take a closer look at the image above. Did you read it? 

56% more weight loss

47% more fat loss

Twice as much visceral fat loss

35% greater reduction in biological oxidative measurements

Here’s a link to all of the clinical research proving the effectiveness of Isagenix.

Why are we facing a health crisis and an obesity epidemic?

Environmental toxins. We are exposed to astounding amounts of pollution. Over 80,000 chemicals have been introduced into our society since 1900, and only 550 have been tested for safety, according to the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). In fact, a recent government survey, “The National Report on Human Exposure to Environmental Chemicals” issued in July 2005, found an average of 148 chemicals in our bodies. And those were only the ones for which they tested! Toxins are in the air, in our water, in the foods that we eat, and in the cosmetics that we use every day. In the book What You Don’t Know May Be Killing You by Dr. Don Colbert, MD. He states: “The result of all of these chemical impurities is that the filters of the body get filled and cannot function.” Unfortunately, and you’ll know this if you suffer from allergies, it’s not just the man-made toxins in our environment that cause stress to our filtration and immune systems, it’s also the toxins that come from nature.

Diets don’t work because they do not address toxins. Fat has two purposes: to store energy (extra calories) and to protect the body from harmful toxins. Your body has a defense system in place –  fat is created to surround impurities called obesogens.  So even if you are not overweight, you may still have plenty of visceral fat which is very dangerous and very hard to get rid of.

nutritional cleansing vs dieting

Confused? You’re not alone because there’s a lot of information here.

Let me sum it up. We are all walking around with a pretty heavy toxic load. Toxins are stored in your fat. When you diet, your body goes into starvation mode and will not release fat. But you’re losing weight right? Not the right kind of weight. You’re losing everything but fat, all the stuff you want to preserve. Like lean tissue, as in your major organs.

Nutritional Cleansing provides your body with everything it needs, so it doesn’t go into this starvation mode, even though on cleanse days you are reducing your calorie intake. Your body is being well fed. The only difference is you are drinking the nutrients, so that your body does not have to spend any energy on digestion. Instead, it is focusing all of it’s energy on breaking down the fat that’s surrounding the toxins, gently and naturally filtering them out of your system. Once those toxins are gone, there is no need for the fat to be there, and it gets flushed out too.

You may have some preconceived notions when it comes to “cleansing.” There are lots of cleanses out there and some of them are downright CRAZY. Please do your research and use some common sense. Sure, you can drink lemon water all day and flush out some toxins, but only water soluble toxins. That’s only the first phase, and where’s the nutrition? There’s a second biochemical phase your body needs to achieve before it starts breaking down the fat, which is where the more deadly toxins are stored.  Finally, there is a  third biochemical phase which removes toxic heavy metals like mercury. Heavy metal toxins are not stored in fat, they are stored in the cells. You must give your body the nourishment it needs to support the natural cleansing process if you are going to cleanse during daytime hours when you are active. You cannot achieve this level of cleansing if you are digesting solid food, so eating fruits and vegetables is not the same as a nutritional cleanse with Isagenix. And  I promise you,  this is not the type of cleanse that keeps you locked in your bathroom all day. You know what I’m saying? You will be drinking a lot of water, but that’s good for you, right? Here’s a great document that will help you understand the truth about cleansing. If you want to see something really impressive watch the video below.
