Comparing the Isagenix Athlete’s Pak and the Jeunesse Global Zen Bodi Challenge Pack

Let’s look at what’s in the Isagenix Athlete’s Pak and the Jeunesse Global Zen Bodi Challenge Pack

 

If you are like me, your fitness is very important to who you are, and is a big part of your lifestyle. Supplementation as well as whole foods are also a big part of my lifestyle and I have to be sure any supplementation is going to naturally support my body in a healthy manner with as many real whole food sources as possible. So, I wanted to check out the difference between two of the leading companies packages for athletes because fitness is my business, so I looked into one company that a lot of people have talked about, Isagenix, to compare with Jeunesse Global

The IsaPro seem to be just whey product, with stevia and more “natural flavors” and ionic alfalfa (some sort of aloe vera apparently). I could see using just plain protein before your workout if you were bulking, but for myself I think that aminos are more inportant as so many of us can’t even process our proteins correctly to get those aminos, and if needed micronized creatine. If you really wanted a plain undenatured protein then my big recommendation is the Action Whey.

The IsaLean Shake, which is also using an undenatured whey and flaxseed, has a LOT of added vitamins in the mix. I don’t get that unless they were trying to be the cheaper Shakeology. The IsaLean is sweetened with yucca root, honey, vanilla bean and about 14 grams of sugar.  Wow… they come from the sugar post workout group.  There is no added sugar in the Zen Pro shake as it’s sweetened with stevia leaf extract and lo han guo extract. the vitamins are not methylated, and you know I’m big on that for those of you with MTHFR or other methylation issues.

With Zen Pro, you get not only amazing bioactive whey, but you get the high ORAC {antioxidant} value without the extra vitamin fillers. ZEN Pro contains a premium protein blend of whey, rice, pea, and chia seed powder that keeps you feeling fuller longer. The ZEN Pro formula also incorporates a probiotic blend of healthy bacteria to optimize digestion and help you stay lean. So if you use the Zen Fit you get the sugar before, and with Zen Pro no sugar after. Important from the standing of lean muscle creation. If you are doing a short workout, like I recommend, then you get enough sugar to feed your glycogen stores with the ZenFit. If you do not listen to me I would recommend something clean like Raw Boost for your natural sugar feed post lift. 

The I Want More Energy is full of more vitamins, which your body can only process so many vitamins and minerals at one time,  and 7 grams of sugar. The Zen Shapecontains contain a patented form of African Mango seed extract, which is clinically shown to stimulate weight loss and metabolic wellness. Bolstered by an infusion of raspberry ketones and high-quality green tea extract, ZEN Shape controls appetite and helps regulate blood sugar levels. Achieve perfect balance with ZEN Shape. My husband loves that he can take it at night without interrupting his sleep, because it gives him some focused energy without the jitters you usual get from this kind of product.

 

The Ionix Supreme has what they call their proprietary blend of fruit extracts, and blackstrap molasses. You can google about all of the benefits of blackstrap molasses, but you are here on this site because you are living a different life, a paleo vegetarian life. It goes through three boilings of the sugar syrup and the majority of sucrose from the original juice has been crystallized. The blackstrap molasses is still mostly sugar by calories. Blackstrap molasses goes through extensive boiling and probably destroys the integrity of the product. If you feel like you need a good antioxidant boost beyond the Zen Bodi program, RESERVE is amazing. I actually like to make a healthy salad dressing with it and wow, talk about health and nutrition in just one bite. there is no need to sweeten RESERVE because it has Dark Sweet Cherry Juice Concentrate (Prunus Campanulata), Blueberry Juice Concentrate (Vaccinium), Concord Grape Juice Concentrate (Vitis Labrusca), Pomegranate Juice Concentrate (Punica Granatum), Aloe Vera (Aloe Barbadensis Miller), Resveratrol, Grapeseed Extract (Vitis Vinifera) and Açai Extract (Euterpe Oleracea) in it. 

 
Add that into the Zen Fit where you get a payload of key amino acids like L’leucine, L’isoleucine, L’valine, L’lysine, L’phenylalanine, L’threonine, L’methionine, L’tryptophan, L’tyrosine, L’cystine,. It’s exactly what any athlete is looking for in order to enhance the workout, or keep the system going naturally. Designed to minimize calories and maximize nutrition, ZEN Fit™ also packs over 20 grams of protein per 6 calories in each serving. I don’t even want to get into the IsaLean Bars because I am not going to promote that you eat a bar that you have made at home, out of your own natural ingredients. I like a no bake protein ball made with organic greens… oh my yum!! 

So let’s talk about the Jeunesse Global Zen Bodi program. It’s the Zen Pro, Zen Fit and Zen Shape. You drink one protein shake a day. It’s 140 calories and I love it with just water, but you can add in whatever you want depending on your calorie needs. The Zen Fit aminos you drink twice a day. I like to do it before my workout, and midday. Cravings dashed with this and it keeps me going. You can do the Zen Shape before your meals for lunch and dinner.  The Zen Bodi system works in unison to decrease the production of the c-reactive protein, which allows leptin to enter the brain so that you can regulate your appetite properly.

Zen Bodi also decreases an enzyme called G3PD, which converts blood sugar into fat; by slowing down the production of G3PD, ZEN BODI helps keep you leaner. It targets the three essential aspects of getting fit: curbing appetite, losing inches, and getting toned. This methodical approach to weight loss isn’t the only revolutionary thing about ZEN BODI —what’s truly
revolutionary are the results!!Both Zen Pro and Zen Fit come in a convenient pouches that you can take anywhere for any family member; for use as a mid-day or late night snack or as a pre-workout or post-workout replenishment program.

So what do you want to use, you elite athletes, aging marathoners and moms looking for more energy that want to get more out of their workout. I’m a believer in the less is more approach to whole foods, and so it doesn’t seem like a hard decision to make. Go with the more natural and science based solution
