The Shakeology Breakdown

Print    Ok, before I get into the details of this “shake” I always reference, I want to point out that I primarily promote the Vegan Shakeology. Specifically the Chocolate flavor. First of all, I am not a fan of whey or dairy in general. There are so many more benefits to plant-based protein ( you will see below) and it helps your body run much more efficiently. Secondly, it tastes like straight up brownie mix so when people try it they are usually hooked.  Thirdly, the benefits that Shakeology claims can take up to three months to take full effect. Shakeology literally cleans out your system so it may work faster or slower depending on your body. Fourthly… is that a word? HA! Shakeology is paired with a good wholesome diet to get the absolute best results.  Ok, end rant….here is the good stuff! 

What’s in Shakeology?

Shakeology is so incredible, there’s nothing out there that can supply you with the nutrients, vitamins, proteins, and minerals in these amounts the way one delicious shake can.

Packed with globally sourced superfood ingredients

  • Proteins and fiber – to help reduce hunger and food cravings.
  • Antioxidants, Phytonutrients, Vitamins, and Minerals – to help fight free radical damage and help support a healthy immune system
  • Adaptogen Herbs – traditionally used to help the body adapt and respond to the effects of stress
  • Prebiotics, Probiotics, and Digestive Enzymes – to help nutrient absorption and support regularity and healthy digestion

Proteins and Fiber

Studies show protein for breakfast can help reduce afternoon cravings for sweets. Shakeology’s nourishing protein blend includes superfoods like sacha inchi and flax that also contain fiber.

• Centuries of traditional medicine believed adaptogens helped support physical and mental wellbeing

Prebiotics, Probiotics, and Digestive Enzymes

Shakeology has fiber, natural prebiotics, and probiotics, like yacon root and bacillus coagulans that provides “good bacteria” to help support digestion and help keep you “regular.”

 WHO should drink shakeology?

Anyone who wants to be healthy! Shakeology contains a wealth of exotic superfood ingredients that supply the body with a rich source of proteins, fiber, antioxidants, phytonutrients, vitamins, minerals, adaptogens, prebiotics, probiotics, and digestive enzymes. Beyond the overall benefit of Shakeology’s dense nutrition, it’s excellent for a variety of different health and wellness goals. Those with an active lifestyle will find that Shakeology provides essential fuel for exercise and supports muscle building and repair. Shakeology will help anyone looking to lose weight by providing key nutrition, fighting junk food cravings, and helping them stay fuller longer. Shakeology’s nutrients and antioxidants can also help anyone interested in boosting their immune system or fighting free radical damage.

What are the benefits of vegan Shakeology compared to whey formulas?

The Tropical Strawberry and Chocolate Vegan Shakeology are dairy, lactose, and soy free. They contain a new proprietary blend of plant-based proteins, ideal for those who cannot tolerate or wish to avoid animal proteins, whey, dairy, or soy. The vegan proteins from chia, flax, quinoa, rice, pea, & oat deliver all 9 essential amino acids.

Many also find that vegan protein is easier for the body to digest than animal protein. The vegan formulas are not fortified with additional vitamin and mineral isolates (as the whey-based Shakeology formulas are), making vegan Shakeology an excellent option for those looking to get their vitamins and minerals exclusively from whole foods without fortification.
