Isagenix Protein Powder Reviews and Nutrition/Ingredients Analysis

isagenix protein powder reviews

isagenix review protein powdersIsagenix is a MLM (Multi-Level Marketing) company just like Beachbody (the manufacturer of Shakeology) and Herbalife.

This means the way they sell stuff is to hire independent reps that sell their products for them.

The reason we bring this up is not to knock on MLM companies (there are plenty of fine ones out there) but to point out that most Isagenix reviews you see online are from websites that have a vested interest in selling Isagenix products (aka, they get commission!).

Full disclosure: While we do sell plant protein powders of our own, this review of Isagenix protein powders is based on two objective criteria: 1.) Ingredients and 2.) Nutrition.

Here’s what our analysis revealed …

Isagenix Reviews: Methodology

Similar to our other plant-based protein powder reviews, we’re analyzing Isagenix protein powders based on health and nutrition … NOT taste. If you want to read reviews about how it tastes, check their website and Amazon.

Let’s get started …

Isagenix sells two main types of protein powder:

  1. IsaPro Whey (90 calories, 1 gram of sugar, and 18 grams of protein per serving)
  2. IsaPro Plant (90 calories, 4-5 grams of carbs, 1-2 gram of sugar, and 18 grams of protein per serving)

IsaPro is marketed toward people trying to lose weight. The latter two target more active people who are looking for more calories and protein per serving.

Next, let’s review what’s in them.

Here are complete nutrition facts information labels and ingredient list analyses for each product and flavor …

4 Reasons I Don’t Love Isagenix Protein Powders

  1. Natural flavors: Like most flavored protein powders, Isagenix uses “natural” flavors. Despite their innocent-sounding name, the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) says natural flavors “may trigger an acute, allergic reaction, intolerance, or other problems.” I personally avoid products that have them, because you really have no idea what’s in them (and food companies aren’t required to tell you).
  2. Gums/Thickeners: Isagenix uses several different types of gums, some of which may be disruptive to gut health. For example, xanthan gum may lead to GI bloating, gas, and diarrhea.
  3. Not Organic: Isagenix’s products are not organic, which means their ingredients could be exposed to chemical pesticides and herbicides. Also, the country of origin is unclear, and their customer service would not reveal this information when asked.
  4. Cost: At $.07-.08/gram, Isagenix is expensive compared to similar powders. (Note: I use cost per gram to account for different serving sizes).

Bottom Line: Are Isagenix IsaPro Protein Shakes and Powders Worth It?

In my personal opinion, the only Isagenix shakes I recommend are the IsaPro Plant Based shakes because they’re low in sugar (1-2 grams) and have a solid blend of vitamins, minerals, fiber, and probiotics.

There are definitely worse protein powders you can buy, but based on my reviews of all Isagenix products and ingredient / nutrition analysis, I recommend sticking with a product with 100% real food, organic ingredients instead.

    Thank you. I have read your review. I am about to turn 70 and I am trying to maintain weight. My health is very poor and a nurse gave me some protein powder to try. Gout is a killer for me. Sofar, the Isolean plant based powder may do the trick.
    Best regards,

    These labels are inaccurate I am not sure where you got them or if they are just old – My Isagenix plant based powder label doesn’t look like these at all. my label lists 21 vitamins and minerals with the least amount being 25% of daily allowance. The ingredient list is much longer and includes chia and beet juice poweder, veg/fruit blends (kale, spinach, pumpkin, cranberry, clorella etc….and the protein blend is fava, mung and pea protein. You really need to update this if this is old information- not accurate representation of isagenix powders. And NO im not a rep. – i love their Chocolate Mint and thats all I really buy from them. But I choose them for the nutritional profile.
