Isagenix Isalean is a product that is being pushed by a multi-level marketing company, and as a rule of thumb, are usually more expensive. The high price doesn’t always necessarily mean a better product, but there are some that actually quite good. Our editors found that at first glance, this is definitely one worth noting.
The protein blend found here (vanilla) is not based on soy, instead relying on a hormone free whey concentrate that comes from New Zealand. The filtered protein isolation is done with organic materials, and doesn’t have a great deal of negative factors. This option definitely started good, but once you look behind the curtain, there are some things that could make one think twice.
Fructose has come under considerable controversy as of late, more so is very high up on the Isagenix label (first ingredient after its proteins). What is it? It’s a monosaccharide (simple sugar), the body can use for energy. Because it does not cause blood sugar rise tremendously (has a low glycemic index), it was once thought that fructose was a good substitute for sucrose (table sugar). However, the American Diabetes Association and nutritional experts have changed their minds about this. When too much fructose enters the liver, the liver can’t process it all fast enough for the body to use as sugar. Instead, it starts making fats from the fructose and sending them off into the bloodstream as triglycerides (you can actually gain weight).
With a good protein blend, and a derived source that is organic and not based on soy, Isageanix Isalean is definitely a good overall option, however, with the high sugar and sodium ration involved and 240 calories, and fructose so high up on the label, it is not one of the best meal replacement solutions available today.
