Isagenix by John Anderson and Jim and Kathy Coover is found at isagenix.com.
It’s an MLM or multi-level marketing business.
They use dietary products as their front to keep from being labeled as a pyramid scheme.
Most MLM businesses view their products simply as a formality to make what they are doing legal.
This is as opposed to creating products that people need and want and can be purchased at reasonable prices.
As to whether the product is helpful is not really our issue to discuss.
This review is to determine if this is something that is worthwhile doing as a home business.
The fact that the business model is MLM is at the heart of our skepticism.
Right from the start, we found that Isagenix is a highly marked-up product.
It is no better than your garden variety of diet pills you can easily find at your local pharmacy or health food store.
The reason for this is usually because companies like Isagenix earn huge from people buying it in bulk as distributors who then try to sell the exorbitantly priced items.
Or worse, who try to get their friends and family to sell them, usually with little to no success.
Besides discovering that certain Isagenix MLM leaders at the top have been indicted for false claims of their product having miracle cure properties.
The company itself has yet to really prove scientifically any of the false claims.
That’s usually because they cannot substantiate those claims with valid proof.
Claiming the product is beyond amazing is a usual tactic used to sell products like these through the network marketing business model.
So while Isagenix distributors use ploys that include pseudoscience nonsense, and misrepresentation.
And in the case of the distributors who were indicted, Isagenix does not stop them from continuing these shady practices.
That does not surprise me as most health and beauty aids MLM businesses to turn a blind eye to this.
That is until they themselves are brought up on charges.
Be aware that in the language in the disclaimers, Isagenix states that its products do not treat, cure or prevent any diseases.
They use this FDA required verbiage to absolve themselves from any responsibility for their products working or not.
However, the real issue at heart here is whether or not you will make a living selling their products.
Or, more to the point, recruiting people to recruit others and so on to earn an income with this.
We have to say Isagenix will not help you earn a substantial living by selling their overpriced and questionably effective products.
Like the majority of multi-level marketing companies, you and those who buy their sales kits will be cannon fodder for the top earners’ profits.
We categorically do not recommend anyone participate in any kind of MLM business.
This is not something we recommend you do in this instance either.
Thanks for reading our Isagenix review.
