Negative Isagenix Side Effects During Cleanse

If you are thinking of doing an Isagenix cleanse or are just starting out, it is good to know about the potential Isagenix side effects you may experience.

I have been using Isagenix cleaning products for 2 years and have trained almost 100 people on the systems. I was pretty lucky that I didn’t experience many of these Isagenix side effects, but I have trained a lot of people to do so.

Some of the more common Isagenix side effects you may experience, and suggestions for alleviating them are:


Your body is releasing toxins at a much faster rate than normal, and your body is going through withdrawal. As with any addictive substance, when you stop putting it into your body, your body reacts in ways that are not always positive. This can be quite unpleasant, but it should go away in a few days.

One solution to this side effect is to increase your water intake. Make sure you only drink purified spring water if you can. Most of the other waters are either full of toxins or dead. By dead I mean a lack of good nutrients. You can also drink green or herbal teas.

When you are dehydrated, you can get headaches easily. Also, if you have a headache, refrain from taking any form of pharmaceutical pain relievers. You are trying to rid your body of chemical toxins and taking pain relievers is pointless.

Cold limbs

Your body is in major cleanse mode because it is releasing toxins. The heat from your body will gravitate toward your internal organs for protection. Your body is using energy internally to cleanse and needs heat from the other areas of your body to do this.

A simple solution to this Isagenix side effect is to put on some extra clothing. It will also pass in a few days.


Toxins are flooding your colon, and in some cases, when people have a higher toxic load, it can be difficult for the colon to keep up. It can get blocked and you may experience bloating. It’s best to make sure that before you start cleaning, you have regular bowel movements. By regular I mean a minimum of one a day, but two or three is ideal.

To make sure you’re regular and stay regular, you may want to include a magnesium supplement in your daily routine or add ground flax seeds to some of your meals. A few prunes or prune juice will usually work as well.

Nausea, dizziness, or an upset stomach

The body is alkaline or acidic and always seeks balance. If your body is more acidic, putting something very alkaline on it will cause you discomfort. This is to be expected.

Caffeine, soda, alcohol, meat, and dairy are known to cause a more acidic state in our bodies. It is recommended to have a diet rich in fruits and vegetables and to drink plenty of alkaline water.

Taking one of the snacks that comes with your Isagenix program along with a large glass of water will help with nausea. If you feel more nauseous from drinking the cleansing juice, then dilute it in water until it no longer causes the side effect.

Not everyone experiences these Isagenix side effects, but if you do, rest assured they only last a couple of days. And if you persevere, you will be grateful that you did. Cleaning out toxins and adding more nutrients to your body are big changes for some people. It could be that the more toxic burden your body has, the more you experience these Isagenix side effects.

Oh, and another really BIG Isagenix side effect is weight loss. But I’ll save it for another article where I talk about the positive side effects of Isagenix.
