So maybe youíve heard about Shakeology, and maybe you havenít.
It wasnít until I was chatting with my friends Tony & Nick that Iíd even heard of Shakeology. Once I realized it was a meal replacement shake I was already dismissing it. Why? Because every time Iíve researched a nutritional drink I ended up disappointed. But Tony told me Shakeology isnít your normal, run-of-the-mill shake. Its 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. Not to mention the INSANE health benefits I have experienced first hand: My digestion is improved, My high blood pressure is back to normal and better than ever and its help me lose weight with proper diet and exercise. 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 BUT once I committed to giving it a fair shake, I never looked BACK. I am definitely a SKEPTICAL portagee but I have absolutely fallen LOVE with this product! The quality and benefits definitely justify the price.
I did a little research because there were things I wanted to look into:
1. the ingredients
2. whether or not it does all it claims
3. the cost
If you are still reading this, youíll discover that Iím an Independent Beachbody Coach (Beachbody is the company that sells Shakeology). You might assume that Iím only doing this to get you to buy it and therefore earn money. But my goal here isnít to take advantage of you. Yes, if you decide to buy Shakeology or Beachbody programs, Iíd appreciate you using my links but I donít expect you to, and Iím not trying to convince you to.
I became a Beachbody coach Ė simply to keep myself accountable to my fitness goals and to help others reach theirs. I heard about Shakeology, I decided to research it. I wanted to inform myself, and then share that information with you. The more informed we know about what weíre putting in our bodies, the healthier we become.
What Shakeology DOESNíT Have
Shakeology doesnít contain:
corn syrup (all sweetness is derived from stevia and non-GMO fructose derived from beets)
GMOís (genetically modified)
RBGH (growth hormones)
Itís also gluten-free, corn-free, and has vegan options.
I know there are other meal replacements out there that claim the same thing and Iím not saying Shakeology is the ONLY one. But once I realized what it didnít have, I started looking at what exactly it does have.
Therein lies the difference.
What Shakeology DOES Have
Shakeology contains over 70 ingredients chosen for their potency and bioavailability (ability to deliver the nutrients your body needs).
The key nutrient groups Shakeologyís ingredients deliver are:
Essential Amino Acids
23 Vitamins & Minerals
