Becoming an Isagenix Distributor

You can either enroll in an Isagenix membership by becoming a customer or an associate. Customers do not participate in the compensation plan but can earn rewards and discounts through referrals. Associates are the first rank within Isagenix' marketing structure.

There are five ranks to which an Isagenix distributor can aspire. Those include:

  • Associate
  • Consultant
  • Manager
  • Director
  • Executive

Each rank carries higher compensation rates and more valuable rewards. There are many ways to earn money as an Isagenix distributor, but the main ones are through retail profits, product introduction bonuses, and team bonuses.

Because the compensation plan has a team-oriented structure, the higher your team's total Group Volume (GV - the total PV of your team), the more money you all make.

Whether you're looking to become a distributor, increase your energy levels, build lean muscle, take nutritional supplements, find a quality cleansing product, or simply lose weight, the company encourages people to start as a customer through creating an Isagenix Customer Membership Account in order to take advantage of discounts and possible rewards.

There are three new membership discount types: Customer, Preferred Customer (without Autoship), and Preferred Customer (with Autoship).

Each membership level carries different product discounts. As a new customer, there is no annual membership fee and you receive a 10 percent discount on all retail purchases.

For a Preferred Customer (without Autoship), you receive a 25 percent discount on retail purchases with a $39 annual membership fee.

As a Preferred Customer (with Autoship), you receive a 25 percent discount as well, but also a reduced annual membership fee of $29; you also become eligible for additional discounts and rewards when you become a Preferred Customer (with Autoship). 

The company recommends all interested parties to start as customers. Customers do not initially participate in the compensation plan until they become an associate within the organization.

Positive Isagenix Reviews

Although the company has not received a high volume of reviews, the ones that they have received have been overwhelmingly positive. The positive reviews can be divided into two different categories: distributor reviews and customer reviews.

The positive customer reviews center around the product itself, describing an authentic health product that actually helps consumers burn calories and fat, retain energy, and cleanse the body of toxins.

One customer described that through his consistent use of the product over the years, his doctor is constantly blown away by his BMI and his muscle and bone density despite his age.

Several customers relate healthy weight loss stories while still being able to enjoy treats (customers appear to enjoy the taste of Isagenix protein shakes and weight loss shakes).

Customers who use Isagenix weight loss products have seen results, but the products alone cannot do all the work for you. Customers should pair Isagenix's weight loss products with healthy eating habits, a structured diet plan, and daily exercise to achieve the best results.

Isagenix distributors also paint a flattering portrait of the company's services. A few distributors describe the Isagenix compensation plan as being better than any other company they have seen.

Another distributor describes the compensation plan as the perfect vehicle for building residual or passive income. Distributors appreciate the high amount of money Isagenix has invested in training for and supplementing distributor success. In other words, Isagenix wants its distributors to make money.

Awards and Accolades

Apart from providing successful health and wellness products to those who want to lose weight, the company has attracted the attention of award-giving organizations across the world.

If accolades are an important part of choosing a multi-level marketing company, Isagenix has been the recipient of many awards including:

  • 36 Stevies from the American Business Awards
  • Two Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards
  • Three Telly Awards
  • Two Spectrum Awards
  • Eight consecutive years of being recognized by Inc. 5000 as one of the fast-growing private companies in America
  • No. 27 on the Direct Selling News Global Top 100 Companies list for the year 2014

Quality Products

Isagenix offers a wide range of health, nutrition, and weight loss products for people who want to improve their overall health and quality of life.

The weight wellness products from Isagenix are intended to be used alongside healthy eating and lifestyle habits.

Its products contain a variety of nutritional ingredients including whey, isalean protein (usually a shake meal replacement that promotes lean muscle building and weight loss), vital minerals, vitamins, fat-free sweeteners, and other dietary supplements.

The company also provides products meant to cleanse the body. Nutritional cleansing is a way to quickly move nutrients through the body and remove unhealthy material from the body.

Those who are trying to lose a significant amount of weight through Isagenix products and other methods, like intermittent fasting, should consult a doctor and practice healthy weight loss habits.

Here are some of products offered by the multi-level marketing company:

  • Ageless Pain Relief Cream
  • Ageless Joint Support
  • Cleanse for Life
  • FiberPro
  • FiberSnacks
  • IsaFlush!
  • IsaKids Essentials
  • Refreshing Body Wash
  • SlimCakes
  • Dairy-Free Protein Shake Options

Isagenix has attempted to create a line of products that can cover and fulfill the needs of any health-focused individual.

By providing vitamins and minerals, meal plans (meal replacement products), healthy snacks, and natural ingredients, the company seeks to create a healthier lifestyle for all its customers.

Business Tools and Resources

Isagenix has 130 Isagenix millionaires and counting, thanks to its training and products. Isagenix offers coaching to help Isagenix Associates in their direct sales success as well as product resources. Product resources include:

  • 30-Day Shake Day and Cleanse Day Planner
  • Isagenix Science Newsletters
  • IsaBody Challenge
  • IsaSalesTools.com
  • Recipes

The Bad

  • Minimum PV (Personal Volume) Requirement
  • Disclaimers
  • Side Effects
  • Expensive Products

Minimum PV (Personal Volume) Requirement

For any distributors to be eligible for compensation, they must have maintained the previous month's personal volume requirement of 100 PV. This means that you either have to buy or sell 100 PV's worth of products within each month to be considered "active" or eligible to receive compensation.

Disclaimers

While Isagenix has many products focused on helping people lead healthier lives, the Arizona-based company has been under fire due to accusations that it's a pyramid scheme and a scam from different organizations. Some of the doubt may come from the health and nutrition disclaimers:

  • DSHEA Disclaimer: Isagenix statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. Isagenix products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.
  • Weight Loss Disclaimer: The weight loss testimonials presented apply only to the individuals depicted, cannot be guaranteed, and should not be considered typical.
  • Earnings Disclaimer: Earning levels for Isagenix® Independent Associates that appear in this publication are examples and should not be construed as typical or average. Income level achievements are dependent upon the individual Associate's business skills, personal ambition, time, commitment, activity, and demographic factors.

Side Effects

Losing weight is always difficult, but it is made even more difficult when extreme measures are taken to do so. While there is a correct way to use the supplements produced by Isagenix, many people will misuse or incorrectly use the health products.

Although consumers of Isagenix shakes will most likely experience weight loss in the first week, some experts say there are side effects to be aware of. Here are a few side effects that come from the ingestion of high-fiber content products, niacin supplementation, milk and whey protein, and chromium:

  • High fiber:
    • Bloating
    • Abdominal cramps
    • Flatulence
  • Niacin supplementation:
    • Flushing — warm, tingling sensations and red skin in the face and upper body
    • Rashes
    • Increase in blood sugar level
    • Ulcers
    • Liver problems
  • Whey and Milk Protein:
    • Constipation
    • Diarrhea
    • Bloating
    • Abdominal pain
    • Cramping
    • Acid reflux
    • Nausea
    • Vomiting
    • Headaches
    • Dizziness
    • Fatigue
    • Joint and muscle pain
  • Chromium:
    • Digestive problems
    • Itchy skin
    • Heart arrhythmia
    • Flushing

These ingredients can be found in Isagenix's product line. People who make sudden changes to their diet should expect side effects since their bodies are not used to cleansing products and meal replacement shakes.

Expensive Products

A 30-day diet plan from Isagenix costs $490, roughly $95 a week. While diet plans are often costly, Isagenix is slightly higher than average. This may deter potential clients from buying a weight loss program if you become a representative for Isagenix.
 
A 29 oz IsaLean Shake, one of the most popular Isagenix items, costs $55.99, which is higher than many retail alternatives. Representatives will have to put effort into emphasizing Isagenix's potential superior quality to convince consumers to buy its weight-loss products.
 

The Bottom Line

If you're looking to be part of a company with a proven sales record, Isagenix may be the company for you. Since its inception in 2002, Isagenix has generated more than $3 billion in cumulative sales through its associates selling health and nutrition products.

Isagenix also has a coaching program which may prove to be helpful to people new to the multi-level marketing world. We recommend researching your options to find a company that best fits your needs. Isagenix could be a good option for people who are passionate about nutrition and weight loss.

My Larry and I have been happy customers with Isagenix for 7+ years. During our lifetimes, we are octogenarians - that means we are 80... LOL ... we have been fit, fit-ish and fit-less. Trust me, when I say, that fit is the way to be. Thanks to the superior nutrition from Isagenix, we have the energy to pursue our regular fitness and strength building exercises which is good for body AND brain, we manage stress and we sleep well. We lead full lives at our age. On the two occasions when the product arrived damaged, I called our world class Customer Care and was treated like royalty. Product replaced, no worries. If you are thinking about trying our products - do it If it works, you get your life back. if it does not work for you, you get your money back. Nothing to lose. 30 day money back guarantee. We are soy free, gluten free, non-gmo for starters. Come take a look... we are celebrating our 17th year in business.

Proof in my lab results, 10 years with the same doctor, 5 years putting these amazing nutritional cleansing products in my body (and 35 years of eating clean, exercise, supplements=mind,body,spirit). The doc is amazed that I am getting older but test after test, including BMI, muscle, bone density, is improving. Blood test are remarkable, not anything like it was before Isagenix. I stay at my ideal weight and still enjoy the "goodies" of life. Love that I get paid to share (hobby style) creating enough income that I literally eat my Isagenix for free as do some of my family members. Energy sustained through my day, mind clarity, and I feel amazing!!! I'm a lifer for these products (and I've spent years trying just about everything under the sun) that truly stand with the ethics of "no compromise products". This company exceeds my values and standards which are very high. Love how I watch others get their best health and enjoying more with Isagenix as part of their daily nutrition. Top notch customer service, which helps make it soooo much easier to share.

I have used Isagenix for over 5 years. I released 70 pounds and kept it off but even more than that, enjoy more energy and better health as a senior. The system is simple and effective with no hassle money back guarantee. The compensation plan is is better than any other company I have worked with. I started as just a product user and now earn residual income.

I'm a customer for life! They are on the cutting edge of health and nutrition and the results show in numerous studies. BTW...Isagenix's customer service is absolutely incredible, they stand behind their products.

Products are NOT organic and contain many many synthetic ingredients, preservatives, unhealthy sweeteners. While Isagenix is not verified GMO free in the US, it is in Australia and New Zealand. They do say they do not use any GMO products. Though considering they do use soy, corn and canola, which are over 90% genetically modified, I am suspicious. Consider that there isn't even approval for GM wheat and it was found growing in Oregon, then consider that over 90% of these crops are GM and often cross contaminated with non-GM crops.

I have been using Isagenix for about 2 months. I have not sold anything but that is not my purpose of using the system. The selling of the product is the bonus for being successful using the product. I have not had any bad side effects except on cleanse days and that is only because my body is cleansing my system of the toxins that have been consumed and made my body very acidic. If you use the product the way it states to use it your physical side effects will decrease and your body will begin to heal due to the nutrients you are getting. Every time I have ordered I receive my products the next business day when order through will call. I have only had an issue with my order once and it was resolved quickly and any missing product was delivered the next day at no charge. The prices are a bit high but that is only because of the quality products they use in order for us to receive the best quality for our bodies. I'm not worried about it not being FDA approved. There are many vitamins over the counter that are not FDA approved and are still considered healthy and good for you. Isagenix does guarantee the quality and if it does not work or you do not like it you can get your money back within 30 days of purchase. They do not advertise as being a miracle cure. They advertise that you will receive the nutrients your body needs in order to become healthy.

I've been a customer for 3 years. I was pleasantly surprised with every aspect of the company. The products are top-notch, the corporate office is ethical, and the referral program is phenomenal. The funny thing about the Internet is that it's like an electronic bathroom wall. Anyone can and will say anything. I wonder if the one reviewer that complained about cancellation was ever a customer, because if she was, she'd know that you can contact Customer Service with LiveChat. Knowing there'd be no hassle was the reason I felt comfortable being a customer in the first place. Actually, it's some of the best customer service I've ever had in my life. I had an item (blender) break, and they replaced for free no questions asked. I hope this review is helpful.

I've been using the Isagenix products for 13 years and still have yet to find shakes or cleanses which can compare for quality and price. Even though my body is sensitive to many foods, most of the Isagenix products work well for me. Company support of their Associates is exceptional and I enjoy that there is cross-over support even if one is in another downline. Their compensation plan is outstanding!

I feel that IF some of the top doctors, nutritionists, scientists, chiropractors, physical therapists, authors of health publications, cover models, fitness competitors, normal every day people, etc. are experiencing positive results - without being paid endorsements - and able to help countless others because of their own clinical trials on themselves, then what I have experienced first hand as well is proof. Bottom line - Until you put anything into your body and give it a test run, you will not know first hand. But, when you do, the light bulb will go on inside of you as well and then you will see WHY Isagenix has an A+ BBB score, multiple Stevie awards, and is consistently helping more people live healthier lives both physically and financially. Financially speaking, everyone has the same opportunity to make money in this company regardless of when or where you came in. If you work at it, you earn. If you consume but don't share, you still benefit from health. BUT, if you truly want to earn honest to goodness residual income (money while you sleep) then THIS compensation plan is the vehicle to do just that. It's not a get rich quick scheme, it's not get in at the top and let everyone under you do it for you. It's helping others you enroll get paid that rewards you long term. The more people you lift up, the more you will earn. It's about empowering others to achieve what THEY want for THEIR lives. The company has invested millions of dollars in tools to help each person who wants to achieve their personal level of success do just that. As an associate, you have your own product experience, then you share with others if you are compelled to do so. It's just that simple.... I am not a millionaire or even a 6 figure income earner, but when I decide to treat this as a business and not a hobby, I can and will be. It's not a flaw in the company compensation plan or because it's a pyramid scheme and I have no way to move up, it's because it's not my time yet and I'm am working in the pockets of my time while I live out my life, my way. I believe from the bottom of my heart that THIS company, THIS compensation plan, THESE products really will and ARE impacting world health, and THAT is why I'm here endorsing. Because my family and I have never felt or looked better, and without trying, I/we began making small amounts of money every week just by sharing with people we love, because we wanted them to feel as good as we did. Eating nutritionally depleted foods available to us on the grocery store shelves, eating clean, eating whole, it just simply isn't enough in the world we live in today. Period. So, for us, we will continue to eat this way for the rest of our lives, continue to enjoy the energy, clarity, youthful toned skin and yes, we will also enjoy getting that email every Monday letting us know that we have been paid for helping others experience the exact same thing.

Customer Service goes out of their way to be helpful and are so accommodating! I am glad to be associated with such a high class organization! PS Can you make more money than the President of your company? your manager? So you can't get paid more than the person above you? Sounds like YOU work for a pyramid scheme. I in fact do make more than who introduced me to these products!!!

The only way to cancel autoship is to ring their customer service which is then another way to convince you not to cancel ! And the cult like behaviour of other consultants turned me off even more, people dish advice out like its one of the shakes, untrained this is so dangerous. Finally the products are considerably more expensive than comparisons... Choose carefully

I've had great results with Isagenix Nutritional Systems. I use the supplements as well as a meal replacement shake once daily for maintenance. I'm 61 yrs old and have never felt better. My sleep has improved, I don't feel as much stress, and I have more energy than I've had in years. From the business perspective, I've found the online training and tools to be of great benefit. the training events I've attended have been great. I've met some wonderful people in the organisation, and it appears that integrity is without question in both management and products. The disclaimers are in place to make sure that no associate sells product based on unrealistic expectations, or enrolls a business builder based on false hope. The binary compensation system resembles a pyramid when you draw it on paper - so do corporate management structures. Pyramid schemes are not designed to sell products or services and are illegal.
