Isagenix is a multilevel marketing company that sells products geared toward weight management and wellness. Central to Isagenix's product line is its weight-loss system, which includes shakes, bars and mini meals designed to help you lose weight while following a reduced-calorie diet. Isagenix claims its products may help reduce cravings for unhealthy food, boost energy and improve muscle tone. Talk to your physician if you're considering using Isagenix products for weight loss.

The Buzz

Isagenix weight management products are low in fat, low in fiber and fortified with vitamins. The IsaLean French Vanilla shake, for example, contains more than 30 percent of the daily value for fiber and 40 to 80 percent of the daily value of several vitamins and minerals. Isagenix sponsored a study of its products carried out by the University of Illinois Chicago in 2012. Though the results are not published in a peer-reviewed journal, the study found that individuals using Isagenix products successfully lost weight and body fat, according to the clinical summary.
