You may have asked yourself one or all of the following questions about Shakeology:
Isn’t it just a protein shake?
What is so special about it?
I’ll paraphrase co-creator Isabelle Daikeler to answer both of these questions with one statement:
Shakeology is a “whole food based, with prebiotics, digestive enzymes, and phytonutrients”. It’s all of that mouthful plus much more but it’s a start. The definition of phytonutrient as described by Webster.com – “bioactive plant-derived compound (as resveratrol) associated with positive health effects”
You’ve probably seen all the common bullet points that Shakeology provides:
- Increased energy
- Lose weight
- Improve Digestion and Regularity
- Lower cholesterol
- Reduce cravings
That’s all great but HOW is this done? What’s in it that makes it different?
Shakeology has 70 ingredients all packed into one meal replacement shake. I’ve selected 5 of them to highlight their contribution to Shakeology.
1.) Sacha Inchi – from the jungles of Peru
Naturally rich in protein and fiber, making it a strong appetite controller—nature’s diet. = REDUCED cravings.
Speeds your metabolism.
Contains more immunity-boosting vegetarian omega-3s than any other food on the planet! Omega-3s are well known for helping our memory, mood health, heart and joint health and promoting a strong immune system.
2.) Astragalus root – direct from China
Helps strengthen our immune system, strengthen muscle mass, helps improve metabolism, circulation and breathing.
3.) Rose hip powder
Anti-inflammatory that alleviates joint stiffness, pain and improves general well-being and mood.
Also rich in vitamin C.
4.) Spinach powder
Strong source of Vitamin K, Vitamin A, Vitamin C and folate.
Promotes bone, cardiovascular, digestive and eye health. It’s a natural anti-inflammatory and promotes mental clarity and energy.
5.) Pea Fiber - It provides one of the highest sources of natural soluble and insoluble dietary fibers known. It has also been known to to help improve cardiovascular health by reducing cholesterol and stabilizing blood sugar levels by providing steady burning energy. Helps in weight loss by giving one the feeling of fullness and reducing the appetite!
That was just 5 of them! It was really difficult to highlight just the 5 of the 70 ingredients. To think that all of these powerful super foods are packed into one meal replacement shake. You won’t find anything processed or modified in any way but found in it’s most natural form possible.
All of this and it TASTES GREAT on top of that.
