What is really in Shakeolgy & what does it do for our bodies?
Protein and Essential Amino Acids
Chocolate, Vanilla, Strawberry and Greenberry Shakeology include whey protein isolate, an easily absorbable source of high-quality protein that's ideal for building and maintaining lean muscle mass. Tropical Strawberry and Vegan Chocolate include high-quality plant proteins from brown rice, pea and other sources. Essential amino acids, found in these proteins, help the body repair muscle tissue and heal wounds; and reduce hunger pangs. The protein in all Shakeology products provides a highly bioavailable source of essential amino acids.
✔ Helps build and repair muscles
✔ Reduce hunger and food cravings
✔ Promote healthy skin, hair, and nails
Prebiotics, Probiotics and Digestive Enzymes
Shakeology contains many ingredients that are beneficial to the digestive system. Prebiotics, natural components of certain plants, help support the "friendly" bacteria in your digestive tract. Probiotics are strains of live good bacteria that help with the digestive process. They assist the body in absorbing nutrients and minerals, bring an overall balance to the digestive tract, and help support the immune system. Digestive enzymes, from sources such as pineapples and papayas, help your body break down food into its individual components, making the nutrients easier to absorb.
✔ Aids digestion
✔ Support a healthy intestinal tract
✔ Increase absorption of nutrients
Adaptogens are special herbs that grow in harsh climates and conditions, at high elevations, atop mountains where the soil is rocky and oxygen in the air is thin. Because these plants have to adapt to harsh conditions, they have highly concentrated nutrients that can help your body cope with stress, provide energy, and maintain a strong immune system. Shakeology has a total of 9 adaptogens - more than any other shake out there.
✔ Helps promote a strong immune system
✔ Helps increase energy
✔ Helps protect the body from stress
✔ Balances endocrine hormones
Antioxidants and phytonutrients (plant-sourced ingredients)
Many of Shakeology's fruit and vegetable sources have been chosen for their high concentration of healthy natural substances known as phytonutrients, including flavonoids, polyphenols, anthocyanins, and catechins. These substances have antioxidant properties, meaning they help neutralize molecules known as free radicals, which damage cells and may contribute to the aging process. In laboratory tests, phytonutrients have shown promise in helping prevent a wide variety of degenerative conditions.
✔ Helps neutralize harmful free radicals
✔ Helps decrease inflammation
✔ Helps maintain the immune system
✔ Decreases risk of degenerative diseases
23 Vitamins and Minerals
Most of us don't get the complete range of essential vitamins and minerals in our daily diets. Some important vitamins, such as vitamin B and C vitamins, are water-soluble, meaning they're flushed out of your body after a short time and need to be replenished regularly. Others, like vitamin E, can be difficult to get enough of in food. Shakeology Chocolate, Strawberry, Vanilla and Greenberry provide all these nutrients in an easy-to-take form, so you never have to worry. (Tropical Strawberry and Vegan Chocolate do not have the vitamin and mineral ingredients added.)
✔ Get a wide range of essential nutrients
✔ Get your necessary vitamins every day
✔ Make up for dietary deficiencies

My family and I have been drinking shakeology for almost one year and it has impacted our health tremendously.
Most days, we drink it for breakfasts but sometimes it’s our easy go-to lunch (especially when we are rushed and full of to-do’s). Although currently, weight loss is not a priority in our household, we have noticed that shakeology has definitely helped us curb cravings and stay at our healthy weight (total life saver during the holidays!).
Other benefits that we have directly noticed are increase in energy, improvement in digestion, aid in nail and hair growth, clear skin and overall better nutrition. The value of this product is pretty amazing considering it costs less than most smoothies in the market and it includes that many more superfoods. Shakeology is definitely a part of our daily routine, we really love how it makes us feel and the biggest bonus is that it tastes delicious!
