5 Reasons to Try Shakeology

Shakeology Chocolate and Greenberry
There are many benefits of Shakeology. It not only can help you lose weight but it can help you be healthier.

By now you have probably heard about Shakeology but maybe you are not sure if it is for you. I originally had some reservations, but now I rarely skip my Shakeology in the morning. I wanted to highlight some major reasons to try Shakeology to help others that may be on the fence.

A World of Superfood Nutrition

Shakeology is your daily dose of dense nutrition. It’s simply the most delicious, superfood-packed protein shake on the planet. The superfoods in Shakeology go beyond meeting basic nutritional needs. Sourced from around the world, antioxidants like camu-camu and phytonutrients like moringa work to detoxify your body, support the immune system, and may even help slow down aging. The adaptogens superfood in Shakeology can help provide energy to assist your body in coping with stress.

With more than 70 super-nutritious ingredients, Shakeology is so incredibly healthy, there’s no other single food item out there that can supply you with all the nutrients, vitamins, proteins, and minerals in the amounts you need the way one delicious shake can. It also protects your body from free radical damage. This promotes a strong immune system as well as an ideal alkaline state.  Shakeology also builds and repairs muscles in addition to promoting healthy skin, hair, and nails.

You could spend more than $700 on supplements, just to re-create all the healthy ingredients in one bag of Shakeology. But why do that . . . when, for only about $4 a serving, you can get it all in one delicious shake.

Help Improve Digestion and Regularity

Shakeology is packed with fiber, natural prebiotics, and probiotics, like yacon root and bacillus coagulans, that increase the presence of “good bacteria” in your intestines to improve digestion and keep you “regular.” Shed toxins built up from years of eating processed foods. Plus, Shakeology can help support a healthy intestinal tract and aid in digestion. All this will promote regularity and increase the absorption of nutrients.

The prebiotics in Shakeology are very great for maintaining the health of your intestinal system and the probiotics help to reduce inflammation in the body overall.

Fight Junk Food Cravings

Studies show protein for breakfast can help prevent afternoon cravings for sweets. But who’s got time to cook eggs? Shakeology’s nourishing protein blend includes superfoods like sacha inchi and flax, rich in fiber to help control your appetite.

It helps you fight cravings and feel full longer. In addition to controlling your food cravings, it promotes ideal blood sugar levels and supports brain function that helps promote alert thinking and a positive mood.

Increase Energy

Drinking Shakeology every day can dramatically improve your energy levels and overall stamina. Among the powerful superfoods in Shakeology are adaptogens—plants like maca root—that adapt themselves to harsh conditions, and therefore carry highly concentrated nutrients that can help provide energy to assist your body in coping with stress. This will help protect your body from stress and can support a healthy libido.

Vegan Formulas Available

Vegan means that the formula contains nothing derived from animals. Chocolate Vegan Shakeology and Vegan Tropical Strawberry contain only plant-based proteins and ingredients. Our original Chocolate, Vanilla, and Greenberry Shakeology formulas contain whey protein, which is derived from cow’s milk and therefore not vegan.

The Tropical Strawberry and Chocolate Vegan Shakeology are dairy free, Lactose free and soy-free. They contain a new proprietary blend of plant-based proteins. It is ideal for those who cannot tolerate or wish to avoid whey protein or animal proteins, and those with intolerance’s to dairy and soy.

Many people find that a vegan protein is more easily digested by the body than animal protein. The vegan formulas are not fortified with additional vitamin and mineral isolates (as the whey-based Shakeology formulas are). Therefore, for people looking for nutrition (vitamins and minerals) coming exclusively from whole foods, without fortification, the vegan Shakeology is a great option.

I was originally born in Missouri, but traveled around most of my childhood. My mom finally got tired of moving while we were in Dallas, Texas and I have been here ever since. After high school I started college at the University of North Texas (UNT) and started working in the computer field. I currently work for JCPenney as a front end software engineer for their e-commerce website. Before this I worked for AT&T about 12 years and started with them in 1999 (when they were Southwestern Bell). I have many passions and I really love photography. Besides photography I also love sports. I not only like to watch it, but I also love to play. Currently my friends and I play indoor soccer and flag football.
