At Isagenix, we are committed to offering the highest quality, solution-based products to help you reach your goals. We’re thrilled to launch the next generation products:

Natural Accelerator™ – energise metabolism
A safe and natural dietary supplement that supports thermogenesis, which is the body’s production of heat that is related to metabolic rate. Thermogenesis can be “turned up” through the use of certain natural compounds, translating into higher energy expenditure, or the burning of calories. Natural Accelerator contains green tea leaf extract, apple cider vinegar powder, cinnamon, and kola nut extract to help energize metabolism.
* Excellent addition to Cleanse Days or any day
* Helps energize metabolism
* Stimulant-free with no harsh side effects

Directions: consume one to two capsules daily with or without food

 

IsaFlush™ – balanced digestive support
While you sleep, your body’s natural processes are hard at work digesting food from the day before. Having a healthy digestive system plays an important part in overall wellness. When digestive processes function properly, the body can effectively absorb nutrients from food so it can recover, repair, and maintain regularity.

IsaFlush does not contain any harsh stimulant ingredients. It’s formulated to help support digestive balance and promote intestinal comfort naturally.

Directions: consume one to two capsules a day, preferably at bedtime, along with a full glass of water. 

 

Ionix Supreme (canister) – calming botanical beverage to help balance a busy lifestyle
When the demands of a busy lifestyle become overwhelming, they can affect your mood, mental clarity, and focus, making it hard to find healthy routines and balanced nutrition. To better manage the stressful demands of everyday life, you need to properly support your body with a variety essential nutrients.

Ionix® Supreme is a superior daily beverage choice that combines herbal ingredients such as Ashwagandha, wolfberry, eleuthero root, rhodiola, and schisandra with essential vitamins and minerals like zinc and vitamin B complex to help the body adapt and perform at its best.

Weight Loss for Good: Our 4 Best Strategies

According to researchers, only about one in every six Americans who have ever been overweight loses weight and maintains that loss. And while that number is larger than most weight loss clinical trials report, most Americans are still unable to lose weight and keep it off.

Simply put, the only thing harder than losing weight is keeping it off. We’ve all heard it before, but here are a few things you maybe haven’t!

Say Goodbye to the Pounds for Good

We’ve gathered some of our best tips and strategies for keeping up with your healthy lifestyle.

  • Develop (and keep) healthy habits. Creating healthy habits is one of the first steps to success in any weight loss journey, whether you choose to make better nutritional choices or exercise more each week. The key to creating habits that stick is to start small and not overwhelm yourself by trying to change everything at once. Start with adding a walk to your week, not daily five-mile runs, a new diet plan, and nightly meditation. Less is more when you’re trying to stay with it.
  • Set firm goals, and keep setting new ones. When you first started your journey, you may have set a goal to lose a few more pounds or gain lean muscle, but once you’ve done it (congrats, by the way!), how do you stay motivated to maintain your results?

Continue to set goals that hold you accountable and give you something to work for. Having something new to accomplish is much more motivating than simply staying the same. And remember, there’s a lot more to celebrate than the number on the scale. For your next goal, try training for a race, climbing an epic mountain, or completing the IsaBody Challenge®.

  • Create the meal plan you love. An Isagenix System with Shake and Cleanse Days is a great way to go, but try not to be too strict on yourself and allow for modifications. While a normal 30-Day System calls for approximately 1,200 daily calories, you may want to up this to about 1,500 calories (depending on your size, gender, etc.) when you’re in maintenance mode.

Use your 500-600-calorie meal as a time to get creative with fun and healthy recipes, or shake up your shake game with new flavours every single day. When you never give yourself a chance to get bored with what you’re eating, you’ll be more likely to stay on track!

  • Make exercise exciting! Let’s face it, the elliptical machine gets boring. So, while it’s important to maintain healthy habits (see tip No. 1), it’s just as important to create a little variety in your day-to-day routine. Exercise with friends, go to a new gym, or make a point to never do the same workout twice in one week – trust us, there are so many options, and one of them is Yoga!

So, are you ready to finally maintain those results you’ve worked so hard for? With these tips, we know you can do it.

What’s the Best Way to Rehydrate Post-workout?

It’s well known that we need to rehydrate after exercise to replace sweat loss. But did you know that when you sweat you lose more than just water?

Electrolytes such as sodium and potassium are also lost in your sweat. These minerals need to be replaced when you rehydrate during and after exercise to restore the balance of water and electrolytes in your body (1).

Why Are Electrolytes Important?

Electrolytes are electrically charged minerals that travel through the blood and extracellular fluid (2). Sodium is the most highly concentrated electrolyte lost in sweat, and is needed by the body to help balance the level of fluids (1, 3). As a positively charged ion, sodium works in contrast with the negatively charged potassium to create cell membrane potential, which is essential for normal muscle and nerve function (4).

Maintaining stable sodium levels is especially important during an intense workout. Low sodium levels can result in a decrease in the amount of extracellular fluid in circulation, which results in less blood volume and a lowered blood pressure which can cause fatigue (5).

Potassium is another important electrolyte that helps to control the balance of fluids in the body. It also helps nerves and muscles “communicate” and supports heart muscles (3, 6). A lack of potassium in the body can cause muscle cramping and weakness, as well as leave you with low energy. Even though far less potassium is lost in sweat compared to salt, it’s still important to restore depleted stores after a workout (4).

Refuel on Carbs

It’s also essential to rehydrate with a drink that provides carbohydrate, as the body’s energy stores will have been depleted during your workout. More and more studies are suggesting that consuming carbohydrates during a workout can improve performance, endurance, and recovery (7, 8).

In addition, consuming carbs immediately after exercise works to your advantage. It’s the time when your muscles are ready to store glycogen at a much faster rate (9, 10). By consuming carbohydrate in the form of monosaccharides, or simple sugars, – as opposed to complex carbohydrate that will need to be broken down by the body – can increase the rate of delivery of the carbohydrate to be absorbed in the small intestine (11).

Introducing Next Generation – AMPED™ Hydrate

Sports drinks are a great tool to help rehydrate and restore electrolyte balance; however, many popular formulations tend to contain excess sugar and calories that can deter health-conscious exercisers from using these products.

With your goals in mind, Isagenix created . This unique carbohydrate-electrolyte solution is enriched with zinc, B vitamins and vitamin C. AMPED Hydrate also supplies the body with easily digestible carbohydrate that can be delivered to your muscles quickly. One of the benefits of consuming a carbohydrate-electrolyte mix is that sodium stimulates the uptake of sugar and water in the small intestine, which helps with rehydration (11).

No matter what exercise you’re undertaking, AMPED Hydrate helps to rehydrate, nourish, and energize your body to get the most out of every workout.

The Science Behind AMPED Hydrate

When it comes to athletic performance, the nutritional focus tends to be before and after training. While proper preparation and recovery are critical, people tend to forget the importance of nourishing their bodies during the workout. Here are three things not to forget the next time you hit the gym.

Drink Enough Water
Sweating is the first sign that your body is losing water, and during a hard workout it can lead to dehydration. The loss of even 1 percent of body water can negatively affect physical and mental performance significantly. To maximize performance, consistently supplying your body with small amounts of water before and during your workout is key.

Why Electrolytes Are Important
Hydration and electrolyte status are linked, and only replacing water during a workout without electrolytes can lead to an imbalance in your body that can result in impaired physical and mental performance. When you sweat your body not only loses water, but also critical electrolytes such as sodium and potassium that play a major role in energy production (1-3).

To restore these vital electrolytes, many turn to sugary sports drinks that are often laden with excess calories and artificial flavors, colors, and sweeteners.

Refuel on Carbs
Not only is replacing the loss of water and electrolytes important during a workout, but the body’s energy stores as well. More and more studies are proving that consuming carbohydrates during a workout leads to improved performance and endurance (4, 5). However, not just any form of carbohydrates will do the trick, often the excess of simple sugars in sports drinks leads to abdominal distress and discomfort — the last thing you want during intense physical activity.

Introducing the Next Generation – AMPED Hydrate
AMPED Hydrate (sticks) have an increased in electrolytes and other nutrients that supplies the body with a blend of quickly absorbing carbohydrates to help spare muscle and liver glycogen stores, boost energy, and restore any shortages that may inhibit performance.

No matter what type of exercise or active level you are, AMPED Hydrate is the perfect sports powder to rehydrate, nourish, and energize your body to make the most out of every workout.

Hydration: How much water do you really need?

The question of how much water your body needs to stay hydrated can be a bit tricky. Is it eight glasses a day? There are easy rules to follow when trying to stay hydrated, but is there really a definitive answer to how much water is needed on a daily basis? Because we all have very different hydration needs that vary depending on our health, activity level, diet and climate, there is no specific one-size-fits-all recommendation.

However, one thing is certain, and that’s the fact that water is critical for each and every one of us. Water makes up 60 percent of our body weight and can vary depending on size and gender (1). Hydration can come from water, food, or metabolic water production. Generally speaking, healthy adults should drink a minimum of 2 litres, or 8.5 cups, of water or fluid every day. However, that can vary greatly from person to person (1-4).

Differences in optimal intake

While considering optimal hydration, there are a few factors to keep in mind. You must take into account the intensity of your fitness routine, the temperature outdoors, current health status and, for women, being pregnant or lactating (2-4).

Athletes who engage in vigorous activities have hydration requirements greater than those individuals who are sedentary by about one to three cups per day. Performing exercise for extended periods of time, especially over an hour, makes electrolytes (sodium and potassium) imperative to hydration. Replacing electrolytes that are lost through sweating helps avoid the condition of having too little sodium in your blood (2-4).

Similarly, living in warm weather with high temperatures or humidity causes greater fluid loss than that of individuals living in climates that are more temperate. For this reason, additional fluids and electrolytes are recommended for people lucky enough to live where it’s warm (2-4).

Fluid intake becomes even more variable if you are sick or are experiencing vomiting or diarrhoea. Those who have chronic health conditions that prevent normal fluid release or abnormal fluid retention should discuss their hydration needs with a physician (2-4).

Lastly, pregnant or lactating women require more fluids for adequate hydration in the range of 10 to 14 additional cups per day. Putting their recommended daily fluid intake level to around 4.5 litres or 18 cups (2-4).

What counts toward hydration

Optimal hydration can be reached through drinking various fluids and by eating water-dense foods.

Findings from a recent study from the Journal of the American College of Nutrition suggest that regardless of the fluids ingested, the body knows how to use them for optimal hydration (5). Researchers observed a group of healthy males, randomised to varying sources of hydration for 24 hours. They were randomised to either consume water, water and diet soda, water and regular soda, or water with regular soda, diet soda and orange juice mixed. After testing the subjects’ urine for biological markers of hydration and dehydration, the scientists discovered that all of the men were adequately hydrated.

Coffee, despite some common beliefs, is also a good hydrator. While early research may have observed that coffee can induce urination in some people, later research confirmed that it does not in any way contribute to dehydration of any part of the body and it can be useful in providing hydration over the course of the day (1). Hydration through coffee, which is also positively associated with better mood and cognition, is a win-win in terms of both its hydrating and uplifting benefits (5-7).

Most recently, scientists have proposed milk and whey to be good sources of optimal hydration. In the Journal of Food and Nutrition Sciences, a study looked at the components of milk and whey proteins as an alternative source for hydration and rehydration after exercise. Due to the branched-chain amino acids, natural electrolytes and longer feeling of satiety that whey-based foods offer, they are a superior source of hydration and rehydration (8). Whey-based protein recovery drinks and meal replacement shakes do count toward hydration and provide added satiety.

Hydration and weight loss

Hydration is paramount to health and wellness and can even contribute to weight gain or weight loss. It’s no secret that sugary beverages, laden with empty calories, could be one of the culprits leading to global obesity (9). However, sugar-free drinks like water, coffee and tea have been linked to better weight-loss success. As described in the European Journal of Obesity, there are many beneficial effects of ample fluid intake on potential weight loss and weight maintenance, because the act of ingesting healthy fluids can help prevent the ingestion of excessive calories from foods (9).

Also, proper hydration plays a role in counteracting overeating. Thirst can often be mistaken for hunger so food is eaten instead of drinking water or other fluid (1). A good idea is to first hydrate with a glass of water, a cup of coffee or tea, or any other sugar-free beverage before grabbing a snack.

Staying properly hydrated also plays a role in thermoregulation. A body that is properly hydrated burns more calories than a body that is dehydrated. Some water-containing fluids can help, too. Coffee is also rich in polyphenolic compounds and caffeine, which are linked to increased metabolism that provides the potential for greater calories burned (10).

Thinking outside the water bottle

When determining personal water and fluid intake needed for optimal hydration, one of the best things to remember is to not become thirsty. Achieve this by drinking plenty of plain water, in addition to other healthy fluids like coffee, tea, electrolyte-enhanced beverages and whey-based protein drinks.

Eating plenty of water-dense fruits and vegetables, such as cucumbers, bell peppers, and watermelon, contribute to optimal hydration as well. Also be sure to add plenty of delicious and healthy drinks and water-dense produce to meals and snacks. Optimal hydration doesn’t have to mean chugging down jugs and jugs of water, but can be achieved with a variety of fluids and delicious foods.

Five great reasons why AMPED should be part of your daily hydration

AMPED Hydrate is upgrading from a liquid concentrate to powder mixture, with increases in vitamins, electrolytes and other nutrients that will deliver an excellent taste, benefits, and enjoying the convenience of individual packaging on the go.

If you’re trying AMPED Hydrate for the first time or maybe you just need a reminder why you love this sports drink so much, these are five great reasons why AMPED should be part of your daily hydration.

  1. Power in your performance
    Whatever your weight goals, fitness and exercise are sure to play an essential role in achieving them, which is why it is important to take the right products to support you through your workout. During exercise, your body loses electrolytes through sweat and burns through carbohydrate stores (called glycogen) in muscle. Hydrate not only provides the body with these essential nutrients but also helps to sustain athletic endurance for peak performance in prolonged exercise such as endurance workouts*.
  2. Daily routine
    Hydrate can be taken daily, too. At just 36 calories per serving, it won’t be contributing too many calories like many fizzy drinks and sugary juices. Instead, you’ll benefit from hydrating nutrients as well as vitamin C and vitamin B-complex! Remember to stay mindful of total calorie intake if using Hydrate as an everyday drink and limiting yourself to half a stick to one full stick, or 1-2 servings, per day.
  3. Stay hydrated
    Staying hydrated is important for your health, whether you’re working out, relaxing at home or are busy on the go. Hydrate is as revitalizing as it is hydrating, and is a great way to jazz up plain water while replenishing the body during exercise or throughout the day.
  4. Good taste, great ingredients
    Practicing healthy eating habits begins with consuming the right nutrients for both your body and weight goals. But taste is just as important! Hydrate comes in  juicy orange or lemon lime flavors, and is a delicious way to quench your thirst. It is also formulated without artificial flavors, colors or sweeteners. Win, win!
  5. For fitness lovers
    Hydrate is specifically designed for use during and after exercise as it contains an electrolyte-carbohydrate complex that delivers these nutrients to working muscles during workouts. Sealed in a handy sachet, it’s easy to keep in your gym bag or rucksack for when you need to maximize your performance*.
