One of my favorite parts of being a Beachbody Coach is being able to share Shakeology. What is Shakeology, you may be asking? Well, it’s the healthiest meal of the day – and quite possibly, the yummiest!
Shakeology® is a patent-pending nutritional protein shake that provides a wide spectrum of healthy nutrients in a low-calorie formula. Whether you use it as a meal replacement for weight loss or simply to ensure your body gets all the nutrients it needs for optimal health, Shakeology takes the guesswork out of nutrition.
What’s In It?
Shakeology contains over 70 ultra high-quality ingredients conveniently located in one glass, to deliver nearly all the nutrients you need to maintain a healthy diet. It’s good for you—and good for everyone—because everyone’s diet is deficient in some of the key nutrient groups packed into just one Shakeology serving:*
- Protein from whey, which is highly absorbable, gives you 8 essential amino acids that help you build muscle, lose weight, support brain function, and keep your skin and bones healthy.
- Vitamins and minerals support optimum health.
- Antioxidants boost the immune system and help reduce free radical damage that can lead to heart disease, heart attacks, blood pressure, and stroke.
- Phytonutrients support immune function and have anti-inflammatory properties. Many phytonutrients have antioxidant properties as well.
- Prebiotics support digestive and immune health. Digestive enzymes help in the digestion of foods and increase the absorption rate of those foods for optimum health.
I’ve been drinking Shakeology for about a year now, and it’s really helped me to make dramatic improvements in my fitness and wellness. I enjoy a delicious Chocolate Shake every morning for breakfast, and have all of my nutrition requirements set for the entire day.
Why Should I Drink It?
Shakeology is an effective way to help you lose weight, increase your energy and be the healthiest you can possibly be. In an independent 90-day study, participants who replaced at least one meal per day experienced some amazing health benefits. It’s known that Shakeology can help you:
- Lose weight
- Reduce cravings
- Increase energy and stamina
- Promote healthy digestion and regularity
- Reduce “bad” cholesterol
- Reduce total cholesterol
- Reduce cardiovascular risk ratio
- Reduce oxidative damage by free radicals
