I knew the products were good. REALLY good. I knew that I have had amazing results, and I knew that everyone should use them because they are perfectly formulated for our bodies, but tonight, I had an ah-ha moment as I was listening to a call. It wasn't even a live call, but a rebroadcast of a call with John Anderson. The master formulator of our product. He described the entire system and how he came upon the formulations of this product and why and how it makes a difference in our bodies. Amazing information. However, these are just my notes. So, here is an unscientific version of a very scientific talk mixed with my own discoveries and applications. They are just my personal notes, so, be kind. :)
John has formulated OVER 2500 different PRODUCTS!!!! For 600 companies! He is truly truly a MASTER. He had retired when he formulated Isagenix, but loved loved loved formulating products and came up with some combinations of ingredients that he wanted to run in a clinical trial to see results.
John says he believes in God and believes that people are gifted with certain knowledge and skill sets to share with the world. WOW. This was an ah ha moment for me, because this is something that I already believe! I know there are people who come to this earth with special gifts, and they are charged with their ability to share. I could NOT agree more. Some people just have a gift. And this is his gift.
He formulated the SYSTEM and shared with a handful of people and felt COMPELLED to share after the results of a test group they tried. Over time, he learned what each single ingredient could do on its own. Ashwaganda (it is an ingredient in our cleanse for life) is an adaptogen found in Nepal and is not always taken singly in its native region. It is taken collectively with other nutrients and together, they interact and are enhanced. He knew during the conception that he needed to find ingredients that are used synergistically.
John said the silver bullet doesn't exist. These properties and minerals, and nutrients need to be used in CONJUNCTION with each OTHER! (This makes total sense to me because I used the product before and just used the shakes and did NOT have the same results) It's the SYSTEM.
They started with a discussion on CLEANSE FOR LIFE, which is a cleansing system we use to enhance weight loss results. THIS IS NOT A POOP CLEANSE! It is a cellular level cleanse with a very specific purpose. The true way to shed the pounds the proper way is to cleanse the body and rest the body and reduce caloric intake and mineralize the body and give it a rest and put the body in a mild ketosis in order to let the body burn the fatty tissue as energy. THAT is where you release the heavy metals and reduce toxins in your body. Cleansing the body and ridding the body of unwanted toxins into a better state of well being. Tn the cleanse for life detox drink, there are over 70 RARE elements, minerals in an organic form extracted from plant life. If you just scooped up dirt and crushed things up, you would not be able to digest them. PLANTS serve a huge purpose on this earth. The roots are like the umbilical cord and get the rich minerals from the earth and extract the fine particles of minerals and trace minerals and put it into the plants! That is what humans need.
What impressed me the most is that he knows exactly the importance of minerals. Rare earth elements from plant life. No one else has the quality and balance that we have because John has been a master of it his entire career of formulating over 2500 products. He has even gained a label. The Mineral Man.
The base of all those minerals, nutrients, and phytonutrients, will enrich the body. Minerals and trace minerals contributes to 95% of all of your bodies functions! (He said that TWICE! So, it must be important) Early pioneers were looking for early forms of vitamins, but they didn't know they needed minerals and trace minerals to enhance absorption. You cannot get maximum absorption of these minerals and nutrients unless they are all working synergysitcally.
For example, synergy of botanicas in cleanse for life, that would help flush the body of toxins. The heart of the Aloe Vera plant the inner heart fillet acted as the best most aggressive cleanses to the body. Using all of these vitamins and minerals help the body to rest and expel the bad things in the body.
During our 48 hour cleanse for life intermittent fast, you are doing two things. You are giving your body a rest, but you are also flooding your system with vital nutrients that your body needs. In order to have the most success, you have to go through the first 24 hours and go to ketosis to uncover a lot of the toxins. So, you have to do 48 hour in order for best results. The second 24 hours is extremely important is DEEP CLEANSING, stirring up the body and rid the body of toxins. I can speak from my own experience that at this point of ketosis, I am not usually hungry and my body is doing its own work to heal itself. Drinking the cleanse for life drink during this experience allows your body to target the fatty areas of the body and break those down metabolizing them for fuel. There has to be glucose present during the cleanse so that your brain can function, and most other cleanses are not designed this way and can do more harm to your system than good.
Regarding strategy for using cleanse for life, some people take one to two ounces daily are having better health results one ounce in the morning one ounce at night. However, this should not replace a 48 hour cleanse, but enhance it for best results. If you have been drinking once ounce of cleanse for life in the morning and evening daily, your 48 hour cleanse will be more effective and unveil even more hard metals, and toxins in the body and release them during that time. Neither method should replace the other. You should be doing both.
If you want to maintain optimal health, you should be consuming this daily.
What happens if people just do the one day cleanse once a week? Is it still beneficial? Yes, you do. it works mildly. It is not as aggressive. You are detoxifying. People DO lose weight doing that, but it takes longer and is not as aggressive.
Side note: this was an interesting conversation for me, because ever since Jaxon was diagnosed with Autism, I have tried to do everything I can to keep our toxicity level in our home to a minimum. I use natural oils to clean my home. I use all natural products to wash dishes, and do my best to make sure our plastics are safe etc. Obviously our world is more toxic than it ever has been before. Never before in the history of this world has this world been as toxic to our systems as it is now, and we have to do things on a daily basis to combat that. He mentioned that EVERYTHING is an epidemic now! EVERYTHING! ADD, ADHD, Obesity. They are all at epidemic proportions because people do not do enough on a daily basis to ensure their health, and this will.
John then moved on to the ISALEAN SHAKE. He immediately went to one of the reasons that I personally think our shake is the best, and that is because we have all the enzymes that are needed to digest the the amino acids and digest them. Our body needs to make these long protein strands into smaller peptides, and it is generally unable to do so by itself. So, having these digestive enzymes helps our bodies to breakdown these proteins and use them completely in the body. Nit Not only that, but they have had to go out of the country to find the best grass fed cattle that eat the best diets in the most clean atmosphere on this planet. They do no injections, no hormones.
That protein is carefully extracted and the amino acid profile is different than the whey protein that you get in the US. The LONG CHAIN amino acids in the great protein we have can become a problem unless your body can break down into peptides. Your body has to unlink them. They put the exact right amount of enzymes to break it down. Because of this, you need to DRINK your shake WITHIN 5 MINUTES! And because of this as well, we get super fast utilization of the protein in the shake.
Regarding the use of Fructose! He says he gets thousands of emails asking why he didn't use a different type of sweetener. There is a purpose for having a good sweetener. Fructose is very pure, it still has the minerals and integrity intact. When you have a meal, if you have all protein and very little fat, it is going to throw the body into a tailspin and you need a BALANCE of carbohydrate/protein/and fat. He completely disagrees with Atkins for this reason. It's dangerous for the body.
If we take it out, it will not convert the fructose to glucose. The brain is only fueled by GLUCOSE. Stevia DOES NOT DO THE SAME THING, It does not break down into GLUCOSE.
Glucose is NOT the enemy. He is VERY aware of candida. But the brain needs GLUCOSE, and if you are cleansing the body and giving it all the nutrients it needs it will be a better machine and naturally fight off excess yeast over growth.
Plants are very similar to humans. If you expose a plant to phosphate fertilizer, that crop will be unhealthy. It's own immune system will be lower. Whereas if you give a plant a very natural diet of microbial units in the soil with organic materials it will be so healthy it will ward off the insects itself You cannot feed the body an unbalanced diet of the immune system will not work.
He has visited personally all of the growers that we use. He knows how they treat and harvest. He has seen the diets of the cattle and has seen all of the processes of the cheese and whey protein. Spent many years selecting growers, and producers. They always visit and audit their suppliers. Many many many companies NEVER audit their product. For the quality and extent that is in this product and the health benefits there is no one in this world that would object to the price point of these products.
Regarding IONIX SUPREME
He explained why there are so many juices on the market! It is a good idea! They do have some health benefits. It will help a lot of conditions and help with nutritional needs, but the combination is not going to create the same thing that this system will create. It is one of the most singular powerful products that we have. He spend a week with 50 phd's and learned about the (Used a word dibizolophopirone) loaded with nutrients and it will enter the body and into the blood stream. It is a miracle cell because it will swell up and those pours becomes larger and it dumps off off its cargo of trace minerals and nutrients and then you have a cell of a sponge, it will circulate through the blood stream and it will attract heavy metals and dump them out of your system. WOW! That is CRAZY TALK! Because heavy metals are a huge issue for kids with autism. My brain is going to explode. He really did not know that the CFL would have such a huge impact in people's lives. 75 years ago there probably was not a need for this program in everyone's life, but we no longer have those options. We need to ward off toxins, and this is the best way to do it. Isagenix is offering health ASSURANCE instead of INSURANCE.
Thank you for taking the time to read this if you got this far! I am exhausted just from listening and retyping it all! I hope this will provide useful information for all of you! Let me know if you have questions!
