Question Is ******** another scam?

I’ve heard about Isa ge nix and wonder if it really works. My bf's mother lost 25 lbs on it and he said it was a slow process (and I believe it is the way to go - no fast miracles).
I was thinking about purchase it only to help me get to my goal, since I am having a hard time to lose my last 8 pounds.
So I am only curious about what people think about it and if anyone here have tried it or know someone who did.
Here is the website I found in case someone would like to take a look at:
http://fatburncleanse.Isa ge nix.com/us/en/home.dhtml

Thank you very much for all the input

Well, the fact that the name has been added to the 3FC spam filter, to me, is a pretty good indicator that we're not dealing with a reputable company!

I agree but it could also be only a matter of advertising issue too....

Its basically a pyramid type company so you get people who make a lot of money by selling it. Its overpriced. I know someone who sells it and she said it doesn't work but it is profitable.

Odds are it's a scam. There have been thousands of products with similar claims, and very few have ever shown any effects when scientifically scrutinized (and those few which have had proven effects have been associated with serious health risks).


I've also found 3FC to be very responsible when it comes to filtering (the language (swear) filter can be a bit overly conservative when you can't talk about ****ake mushrooms without being edited), but I've not seen the spam filter applied loosely. Generally I've only seen the filter applied after many complaints.

I googled the product name + reviews. Some rate it all website came up.

ETA... OH I just remembered I tried this once- cost me a fortune and all it did was make me feel gross- don't waste your money! The shakes are DISGUSTING!

One of my husband's coworkers did this program for awhile after her boyfriend bought the stuff and then didn't use it. She said it tasted awful, made her sick, and she lost no noticeable weight. Well, initially lost weight from the sick, then gained back.

Kaplods - technically, we don't censor the proper spelling of shiitake...only the most common misspelling.

So that's how you spell shiitake. On my garden website they censor kittywillow. Too funny!

I've seen the misspelling of shiitake so much, I thought it was an alternate spelling, huh learn something new everyday.

One site I go to censors out cocktails into ****tails, which I think makes an innocent word then seem dirty.

I just want to warn you. I know there are people who rave about it. But I did it and got a horrible electrolyte imbalance from it. My Dr told me it was horrible and made my blood work mess up. I felt like I was going to faint.
All it is is starving yourself on the cleanse days and on the shake days 2 shakes and a dinner. You can do that with any whey protein.
Just wanted to share with you.
