You may cringe when you hear the word, “cleanse,” if you’ve ever experienced other cleanses that often involve questionable ingredients and harsh methods. Rest assured; Cleanse Days are different.
Concerns with many typical cleanses include extreme dietary restrictions, days spent drinking nothing but sugary juices, or the use of potentially dangerous ingredients that act as laxatives or diuretics. These approaches can leave you feeling depleted and dehydrated.
An Isagenix Cleanse Day is a method of nutritionally supported intermittent fasting. Cleanse Days are centered around natural ingredients and gentle methods that support your body’s internal systems of renewal and detoxification. There are no laxatives or diuretics involved. This method of nutritional cleansing is designed to help you feel nourished and energized while tapping into the benefits of intermittent fasting that support weight management and metabolic health.
Isagenix products and systems offer an approach to nutritional cleansing that is supported by published clinical studies (1-7). This system combines intermittent fasting on Cleanse Days and calorie control on Shake Days while providing thoughtfully balanced nutrition for weight loss, improved health, and overall wellbeing.
Intermittent fasting describes an eating pattern that involves periodic abstinence from normal meals with the goal of enhancing health and wellbeing. Many different styles of intermittent fasting gained popularity in recent years, but Cleanse Days were a key component of the Isagenix system from the beginning.
Weight loss (or weight maintenance) is often seen as the main benefit of intermittent fasting, but there are plenty of reasons beyond weight loss to fast. For example, intermittent fasting is an effective strategy for reducing visceral fat (or deep belly fat), and as a result, improving insulin sensitivity and overall cardiovascular health (8, 9).
Additionally, research shows that fasting initiates the recycling of old and dysfunctional components of cells. This process happens through enzymatic pathways known as “autophagy” (10). Autophagy is a cellular self-cleaning mechanism that affords important benefits for overall health.
Cleanse for Life is a key feature of intermittent fasting with Isagenix. It defines Cleanse Days and separates them from ordinary fasting that restricts you to just water. It contains a blend of natural ingredients including botanical extracts and nutrients to support the body’s natural detoxification systems, carefully selected for use in conjunction with intermittent fasting.
Cleanse for Life has been shown to influence antioxidant and detoxification pathways in cells (11). As part of the Isagenix Weight Loss System, Cleanse for Life contributed an increase in toxin elimination and a decrease in oxidative stress compared to a heart-healthy diet in a 12-week clinical study (12). Including Cleanse for Life as your Cleanse Day companion provides a better, more complete cleansing experience.
Cleanse for Life is available in both liquid and powder forms. It can be consumed as a concentrated shot or diluted with water. Additionally, it can be served chilled, poured over ice, or mixed with hot (but not boiling) water to make a warm herbal tea.
Cleanse for Life can be enjoyed daily for general wellbeing and on Cleanse Days for intermittent fasting support.
Daily Cleansing – As a daily supplement, consume two fluid ounces or one level scoop of Cleanse for Life each day. While there’s no wrong time to take Cleanse for Life, many people prefer to have a daily serving in the evening since the body naturally experiences a “mini-fast” during sleep overnight.
Deep Cleansing – For nutritional support on Cleanse Days, drink 4 ounces (or 2 level scoops), four times spread evenly throughout the day: one serving morning, noon, late afternoon, and evening.
Unlike so many other cleanses, Cleanse Days are focused on natural ingredients and gentle methods that support the body’s process of detoxification and renewal. Cleanse for Life offers a blend of nutrients and botanical ingredients designed to provide nutritional support for intermittent fasting and is an integral part of a nutritional cleansing system backed by years of scientific research.
