|Me & Shakeology on the Gulf Of Mexico|
Let's start with the short: As a busy stay at home Mom Shakeology has been a GREAT way for me to get all the nutrients I need jammed into one glass... it's QUICK, easy, and a GREAT way to naturally BOOST my energy... and my kids BEG for it! You know when a 8 year old and 3 year old ask for something that's actually good for them you found a WINNING product!! Not to mention the INSANE health benefits I have experienced first hand: My digestion is improved, My migraines have VANISHED, and I have maintained my weight loss effortlessly!
Now I admit I was held up on the price for a LONG time, I doubted it's claims, and REFUSED to give it a chance! Seriously $120 bucks a month is pricey for a one income family BUT once I committed to giving it a fair shake, I never looked BACK. I am definitely a SKEPTICAL penny pincher and even I absolutely have fallen head over heals in LOVE with this product! The quality and benefits definitely justify the price. I know when I started clean eating it was a STRUGGLE for me to find a shake that fit into my new unprocessed life... Shakeology meets that need PLUS some!

Now for the LONG version of WHY:
Antioxidants. Shakeology contains some of the most potent antioxidants: flavonoids and phytonutrients such as spinach, blue green algae, carrot powder, strawberry powder, and vitamins E and C. These help to prevent free radicals from oxidizing and destroying cells. The ingredients in our antioxidant blend such as pomegranate, acai berry, camu-camu, goji, and blueberry also have powerful antioxidant effects to support your immune system and help protect your body from normal inflammatory response.
Energy. Shakeology contains a range of B vitamins and trace minerals, like zinc and magnesium, from whole food sources that regulate metabolism and increase energy. Shakeology also contains maca root, an adaptogen herb known to promote endurance and stamina. Check out our Ingredient Spotlight on maca root to learn more.
Digestion. The Shakeology non-dairy prebiotic and probiotic blend contains fiber and different enzymes like amylase, papain, cellulose, and lactase, which all support digestion. These ingredients aid in breaking down food molecules into smaller molecules that can be properly digested, so all of the nutrients can be absorbed into your system.
Mood. One scoop of Shakeology provides 100% of the daily recommended intake of vitamin B12. B12 is often linked with good mood maintenance; B vitamins are also essential for the production and proper functioning of neurotransmitters like dopamine, crucial to the experience of pleasure. Shakeology also contains cacao, which is very high in phenylethylamine (PEA). PEA acts as a neuromodulator to enhance one's mood.
Detoxification. Many of the ingredients in Shakeology (spirulina, chlorella, flaxseed, barley grass, spinach) contain powerful detoxification compounds such as chlorophyll and alpha-linolenic acid. These ingredients may help rid the body of environmental toxins such as smog, heavy metals, herbicides, cleaning products, and pesticides. They also aid in liver detoxification. Shakeology also includes kamut grass, an ingredient coined "nature's most powerful detoxifier." This grass has been known to cleanse the body and detoxify the cells to restore health and vitality.
Immunity. The antioxidants, bioflavanoids, and flavanoids in Shakeology work to support immunity. Some of these ingredients include ashwaganda, acerola cherry, rose hips, and goji berries. The goji berries in Shakeology are one of the richest sources of antioxidants; not only does goji berry promote eye, reproductive, and circulatory health, but it also supports your immune system and promotes longevity!
Satiety/cravings. The protein, chromium, and nutrient-dense calories from superfoods in Shakeology work to help decrease your appetite. Chromium is important because it helps maintain blood-sugar levels, which reduces sugar cravings and promotes fat metabolism. Plus, protein-rich meals are a great way to keep you feeling full, longer!
Complete nutrition: Each Shakeology ingredient plays an important role in feeding your body on a cellular level, but it is important to remember that the synergy of the 70+ ingredients working together is what truly fuels your body to keep you looking and feeling your best.
"It's the Healthiest Meal of the Day! It helps you lose weight, curb cravings, lower cholesterol, and increase energy and SO much MORE! When you break it down it's less than $4* a day, that's a CUP of coffee at a coffee house, or a VALUE meal... but the REAL value is the quality!! Whole natural ingredients that will help you take it to the NEXT level!
