Listening to an endurance coach talk about using products to maximize nutrition to help athletes: Gain Muscle, Get Faster, Get Stronger, Last Longer.
For those of us with busy lifestyles during the week, the weekend represents an opportunity for more intense workouts. However, this kind of infrequent physical activity on a weekly basis can be difficult on the immune system.
After intense or vigorous exercise during the weekend, there’s a period when immunity is suppressed and vulnerable. This “open window” can occur in both seasoned athletes and those who are recreationally active, although most of the research in this area has been completed in athletic populations.
Adding Immune Shake Booster into your everyday routine can be an important tool to keep your immune system stronger during and after exercise.
Immune Shake Booster includes ingredients designed to prime the immune system and can be used daily, which is particularly important for those who participate in physical activity, even sparingly. Wellmune® beta glucans in Immune Shake Booster have been shown to support the immune system at times of stress, including after exercise.
In a 2017 study in recreationally active adults, supplementing with Wellmune daily led to better immunity after exercise (1). Previous studies involving Wellmune have included men, women, stressed individuals, and athletes, but this is the first study to include recreationally active participants (2-4).
The study included 109 college-aged, recreationally active men and women not currently taking part in an exercise program. All participants completed both a supplement (250 mg Wellmune) and placebo (250 mg rice flour) condition with a seven-day washout period between conditions.
After 10 days of either supplement or placebo, the participants performed fast and slow treadmill intervals in a hot, humid environment for 90 minutes. The researchers took blood samples at baseline, prior to and immediately following exercise, and two and four hours into recovery.
They found that there was a modulation of immune markers after exercise, suggesting immune cells are primed and ready if they were to encounter pathogens. This confirms supplementation with Wellmune beta glucan may decrease the likelihood of immune suppression after intense exercise as well as in times of extreme stress, as modeled in the hot exercise condition.
These results show another reason to make Immune Shake Booster part of your daily routine. Instead of using it seasonally, try adding a scoop to your IsaLean® Shake each day to support your body through life’s many stressors.

Want to learn more about the new Isagenix line of essential oils- Essence? The Research and Science Team has compiled a list of the most commonly asked questions and answers below.
For more information about Essence, check out the Toolkit here!
What are essential oils?
Essential oils are highly concentrated aromatic extracts that are distilled or cold pressed from a variety of plant material including leaves, roots, flowers, seeds, resins, woods, and fruits.
What are some ways to use essential oils?
In general, essential oils can enjoyed for their distinctive fragrance and aromatic properties when applied to the skin or used with a diffuser. Some essential oils may be added to foods or beverages to enhance flavor and aroma or provide other benefits. Check Isagenix.com for each Essence Essential oil’s recommended use.
Which Essence Essential Oils are safe to ingest?
Certain essential oils can be added to foods and beverages to invigorate flavor and aroma among other benefits. Content, TumBliss, Defense Shield, Lavender, Lemon, Frankincense, and Peppermint are safe to ingest.
Add up to one drop of Isagenix Essence Essential Oil to at least 8 fluid ounces of liquid. Because essential oils are potent even a small amount can provide great flavor and benefits. Try dipping a toothpick into the oil and stirring it into your shake or cleanse drink.
Do not consume Airway™ Blend, Tea Tree Essential Oil, or Eucalyptus Essential Oil.
What is an application oil and why should I use it?
Fractioned coconut oil is the only ingredient in Essence Coconut Application Oil. Fractionated coconut oil is the most popular oil used for applying essential oils to the skin. It is moisturizing, odor free, and non-greasy.
Application oils are necessary because they help ensure that the essential oil of choice is comfortable on the skin. Pure essential oils are concentrated and can sometimes be irritating for sensitive skin types when applied without dilution. Isagenix application oil does not reduce the effects of the essential oil, but minimizes skin irritation.
What if I experience skin discomfort or irritation?
When applying an oil topically for the first time it’ a good idea to place one drop in an inconspicuous area to see how your skin reacts. To minimize skin sensitivity, mix with a few drops of Isagenix Coconut Application Oil. If skin discomfort or irritation occurs, discontinue use on the affected area. If the reaction persists it is best to consult with a doctor.
Where should Essence essential oils be applied topically?
Diluted essential oils can be applied to most areas of the skin. However, refrain from applying oils to sensitive areas such as near the eyes and ears.
Can essential oils be used during pregnancy or while nursing?
Isagenix does not recommend use of Essence Essential Oils during pregnancy or while nursing. As with any Isagenix Product or System it is always best to consult with your doctor prior to beginning the use of any Essential Oil.
Can children use Essence Essential oils?
Essence Essential Oils can be enjoyed by the entire family through the use of a diffuser in large, well-ventilated spaces. Before applying any essential oil topically, it is best to consult with your child’s pediatrician. Ingesting Essence Essential Oils is only recommended for adults over the age of 18.
What about the use of Essence Essential Oils if I have a medical condition or take prescription medication?
It is always recommended that you consult with your doctor if you have a pre-existing medical condition or take a prescription medication prior to using any Isagenix product, including Essence Essential Oils. Your health care provider can help you determine if there are concerns that may be important for you when using essential oils.
Are Essence Essential Oils safe to diffuse around pets?
Some pets may be especially sensitive to the aroma of essential oils. Diffusing Essence Essential Oils is not recommended in enclosed or poorly ventilated areas for either people or pets. If you have pets and would like to use Essence Essential Oils at home it is best to first consult with your veterinarian to find out what concerns may be important for your pet.
Are there any synthetic ingredients or additives in Essence Essential Oils?
With Essence by Isagenix Essential Oil collection, you can be sure the oils are unadulterated, 100 percent pure, and third-party tested. Essential oils can be adulterated with synthetic compounds and additives, so it’s important to choose oils that come with no-compromise quality.
Do you test your essential oils for heavy metals, pesticides, or purity?
As a new member of the Isagenix product line, Essence Essential Oils come with Isagenix No-Compromise Commitment. Every oil in our Essence line is carefully selected and third-party tested as well as backed by our No-Compromise Commitment to quality.
