No Compromise Ingredients Set Isagenix Apart

12 Aug

????????????????????????????????????????????????

As it should be, your safety is our first priority at Isagenix. Having safe, effective, “no compromise” products means giving no slack when it comes to selecting and testing raw materials, following the appropriate regulatory guidelines, and verifying that the finished products meet purity and composition standards.

The Isagenix “No Compromise” Quality Policy is extensive and thorough, covering every detail from ingredient sourcing to manufacturing guidelines. By following key procedures, Isagenix can stand by their products with confidence.

After a product has been proposed and approved, it’s time to select the best source of the raw material to begin formulation. Quality ingredients could mean the difference between products having no effect and providing fantastic results. At Isagenix, raw materials are only sourced from suppliers with a proven track record of sustainability and quality. Isagenix cleanse

One of the best examples of Isagenix’s quality standards is the whey protein found in IsaLean shakes. New Zealand undenatured whey protein was carefully selected after vigorous research and testing because the quality of the protein can’t be beat. It’s the best of the best. It is derived from grass fed cows that are not given GMO’s or antibiotics. Happy cows equal fantastic protein. Isagenix cleanse

The guidelines that define how manufacturing should be conducted are known as current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMPs). Isagenix works to ensure that all products meet or exceed the highest standards of cGMPs for dietary supplements. Isagenix cleanse

cGMPs are outlined by the FDA and other international regulatory boards such as Health Canada and the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) in Australia. These guidelines include authenticity, quarantine and release procedures, potency and purity testing of raw materials and finished products, cleanliness of the facility, employee training, and documentation . isagenix cleanse

Meeting all of these guidelines can make the release of products internationally a fairly complicated, yet beneficial, process. Through this series of checks and balances, Isagenix can stand by the quality of its products with pride.

Isagenix also adheres to detailed written Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) to ensure consistency and safety in each phase of our manufacturing process. One SOP Isagenix follows requires that every raw material that arrives in the manufacturing facilities be immediately quarantined and thoroughly inspected. isagenix cleanse

Any raw materials that do not meet standardized testing methods are rejected or destroyed. Additionally, the testing that is done to confirm safety and purity of raw materials is very extensive. Rigorous testing is performed for:

• Microbial activity: total aerobic bacterial, yeast and mold, salmonella and E. coli strains, and other bacterial strains• Pesticides, herbicides, and fungicides• Heavy metals: all botanicals are tested for the presence of lead, mercury, cadmium, and arsenic• PCBs and dioxins: each batch of fish oil is third-party tested to confirm undetectable levels of heavy metals, PCBs, and dioxins isagenix cleanse

In addition to testing raw materials, Isagenix is unique in that they also thoroughly evaluate the efficacy of finished products. This includes re-analyzing the product for identity and purity. Third-party claim testing on vitamin and mineral content is also conducted to ensure the products fully meet what is said on their labels. Finally, stability testing is done to confirm that the strength and composition as indicated on the label of the product is accurate up until at least the expiration date. isagenix cleanse

Another major role of Isagenix Quality Assurance is statistical process control. This involves tracking trends to ensure product quality is continuously monitored and upheld. By putting this much care and attention towards product quality and safety, Isagenix knows it’s doing right by its customer and their health. isagenix cleanse

What Happened to Fruits and Veggies ?

What Happened to our Fruits and Vegies?

Why you should give Isagenix and our products more consideration!!! You Need 10 Servings of Vegetables to Equal Just One Serving from 50 Years Ago!

• Just One of the Vital Minerals Lost was Regulating More than 300 Critical Body Functions.

• The Same Thing Is Happening to Your Fruit.

• And, It’s Getting Worse…

These days, the produce you buy at your local grocery store just doesn’t have the nutritional power that fruits and vegetables had just a few decades ago. Over farming, soil depletion, commercial fertilizer, hybrid crops and genetic modifications are slashing the nutrients found in your fruits and vegetables.

You’d have to eat 10 servings of spinach to get the same level of minerals from just one serving about 50 years ago.2

Producers create “hybrid” forms of your fruits and vegetables – not for their ability to store nutrients – but for their color, weight and shelf life. Why? So they’ll look nice and pretty when they sit under the fluorescent lights of your supermarket.

You may think they look nutritious, but “under the hood,” they contain little more than indigestible cellulose, sugar and water.

“removed section”

If you want all those many benefits of fruits and vegetables, this breakthrough is very exciting news!

Your Food Supply has Changed:

You’re Eating Fruit with No Vitamins… Vegetables with No Minerals…

We first began to know that there was a problem back in 1936. A group of doctors introduced Document No. 264 to the floor of the United States Senate. It was a dire warning that the mineral content of the soil was eroding. Vegetables were losing their power and people were at risk. Unfortunately congress did nothing.

Today, we’re feeling the effects…

For instance, just look at the US Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) nutritional values for fruits and vegetables today compared to 1975.3

Take a look at the loss of Vitamins and Minerals Since 1975:

• Apples, Vitamin A is down 41%

• Sweet Peppers, Vitamin C is down 31%

• Watercress, Iron is down 88%

• Broccoli, Calcium and Vitamin A are down 50%

• Cauliflower, Vitamin C is down 45%; Vitamin B1 is down 48%; and Vitmain B2 is down 47%

• Collards Greens, Vitamin A is down 45%; Potassium is down 60%; and Magnesium is down 85%

According to USDA’s own numbers, the vitamin and mineral content has dramatically plummeted – in just 30 years!

Notice minerals like iron and magnesium have dropped by more than 80 percent. That’s from commercial farming technology and powerful fertilizers that practically sterilize the soil – leaving it with little to no mineral content.

If the soil doesn’t have minerals, there’s no way for vegetables to absorb them.

And that’s bad news for your health… Magnesium regulates over 300 body functions – every day and is critical to heart health and healthy glucose metabolism.*

But the story doesn’t end there. I wasn’t the only one to realize your fruits and vegetables don’t pack the nutritional punch they used to… A report from the University of Texas in Austin, also tracked the decline of nutrients in produce.

They reported findings at a recent meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in St. Louis. They found significant drops in a wide range of produce across the board, including a 20 percent decline in vitamin C and a 38 percent plunge in vitamin B2.

What’s worse, fruit and vegetable growers create “hybrids” for the sake of making their produce “look better.” They actually create new versions of all your favorites so they have more water, more sugar, more pith (the indigestible support tissue like the white fibrous netting around an orange section) and less of everything else.

Growers call this the “dilution effect.” For them, more water and more pith helps their produce ship well, look good and weigh a lot. But it virtually wipes out their vitamin and mineral content.

The plunge in nutrients in your produce over the last 30 to 50 years is bad enough. But it’s rapidly getting much worse. Genetic hybrids are pushing nutrient values even lower.

A popular broccoli hybrid called “Marathon” is an alarming example:

By the USDA’s own admission, levels of calcium and magnesium in the Marathon hybrid are 35 percent lower than other hybrids. The hybrids themselves are 50 percent lower in calcium and magnesium than “normal” broccoli. And the “normal” broccoli has less than half the calcium and magnesium than broccoli did in 1975!

In less than 50 years, the mineral, vitamin and antioxidant value native to fruits and vegetables has been virtually “destroyed” – robbing you of the natural vital nutrients you need every day.
