Skidmore College Conducts Study on the Isagenix System
After some remarkable results in a previous University of Illinois at Chicago study, Paul Arciero, Ph.D., of Skidmore College (USA) conducted a new study that was extended to include men.
His 10 week study included 40 overweight and obese men and women who followed the Isagenix system. As you can see below, the results were remarkable! The study has now been extended to examine the long-term results of using the Isagenix system in comparison to a heart-healthy diet. This study will be conducted over a further 9 months.

The results of the latest Isagenix study are finally in! You can download our now updated 15-Month Skidmore Study Flyer with some of the 15-month results.
The year-long collaboration with nutrition researcher Paul Arciero Ph.D., of Skidmore College was designed to test the long-term success using Isagenix for sustained weight loss, and its effect on detoxification, and metabolism. The results showed extraordinary advantages to following the Isagenix system over a traditional heart-healthy diet.
The study consisted of 40 obese or overweight participants who followed an Isagenix system for initial weight loss. After 10 weeks the subjects were divided into two groups. To test the long-term effects of the products, one group then continued with an Isagenix maintenance system and the other group followed a heart-healthy diet for the remainder of the 15 months.
At the 2015 New Year Kick Off event in Palm Springs, Calif., Isagenix Chief Science Officer, Suk Cho Ph.D., shared his excitement over the long-term results of the Skidmore College study showing that subjects who stayed on the Isagenix maintenance plan were more successful with sustaining their weight loss.
- After one year, participants who continued with the Isagenix maintenance plan were able to maintain, if not increase overall weight loss, lean body mass, and continue to decrease their percent body and visceral fat.
- In comparison, those who followed the heart-healthy diet with the help of a dietitian on average found that they gained back most of their weight initially lost, along with a majority of the body fat.
New Isagenix Study Findings on Weight Loss and Toxins
We’re pleased to announce the publication of a new study evaluating Isagenix for weight loss in relation to its association with the release of toxins and reduction of oxidative stress.
The latest research paper, published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, appeared just in time for Isagenix New Year Kickoff in San Antonio, Texas.
The new paper represents the third peer-reviewed publication from researchers at Skidmore College, Saratoga Springs, New York. The paper followed two other publications regarding a study that evaluated the Isagenix System’s effects on body composition and cardiovascular changes.
At NYKO, lead researcher Paul Arciero, Ph.D., gave a comprehensive review of his lab’s study on Isagenix products for weight loss and weight maintenance. He summarized the first two papers published about the study, then shared that he’d just received news of a third paper being published.
“It’s my priority as an independent researcher to objectively and scientifically investigate the efficacy of nutritional support systems across the age, health, and fitness spectrum,” said Dr. Arciero, who is the director of the Human Nutrition and Metabolism laboratory and a professor of health and exercise sciences at Skidmore College.
The newly minted Isagenix Scientific Advisory Board member also shared that the new research is attracting attention in the nutrition science world, as it is the first to discuss the relationship between weight loss, toxins, and oxidative stress .
The results (in just 11 weeks) were amazing! Click on the image below to enlarge.
- Average weight loss* – 10.9kg
- Average decrease in body fat – 17%
- Average decrease in visceral fat (dangerous fat around organs) – 33%
