Let’s have a SHAKEOLOGY education lesson.
Sometimes our lives are just “so busy” that we grab whatever is quickest and easiest to eat– regardless of the nutritional value.
Shakeology is quick and easy and includes all your 5 a day fruits and vegetables that we need in our daily nutrition in ONE shake. It literally takes me less than TWO minutes to mix up and go.
It is NOT a “protein shake” even though it has proteins in it, the main benefit of it is a MEAL replacement SHAKE. **Some people do use them as a muscle recovery aid after a weight training session.** They also help keep you full with the high content of essential proteins and helps decrease your cravings for junk food.
***It is packed with:
Protein + Amino acids* that help the body build lean muscles, heal wounds, improve skin and hair, support optimal brain function, mental clarity, improved mood and reduces cravings. I can attest to all of these. My hair and nails have grown so much in the past 9 months of me drinking this daily.
Antioxidants (red super foods)* help reduce oxidative damage in the body caused by free radicals. Oxidative damage is a major cause for degenerative conditions such as heart disease, high blood pressure, dementia and arthritis. — I have witness a handful of people in our challenge groups go OFF of their prescribed medication (after consulting their physician), blood pressure medication, type 2 diabetes medication and MORE because they started using Shakeology.
Phytonutrients (green super foods)* boosts immunity, help fight diseases, can slow down the aging process, detoxify the body and have alkalizing properties.
Adaptogens* plant derived agents that help the body from stress. These are herbs that help with balancing endocrine hormones and the immune system.
Prebiotics* help promote better intestinal health. Stimulates growth of friendly bacteria for better digestion. ANYONE that knows me knows that my digestive system is TERRIBLE. It is one of the main reasons I easily gain weight but since I have started Shakeology I am better regulated and I have been able to keep the weight I lose OFF– so DOUBLE win for me.
Digestive Enzymes* Helps the body break down foods and increase absorption of nutrients.
“It’s so expensive. I know a great Whey Protein that is MUCH cheaper and better for you.”
That’s great. You can do that. I am not going to bash any other product on the market, BUT I am going to stick with Shakeology because of the VEGAN option (gluten, dairy and soy free) due to my above mentioned Digestive issues.
Expensive? I was literally spending $25-30 a week on coffee from Starbucks or local coffee shops. That means I spent $100-120 a month JUST ON COFFEE but I still had to eat. With the new Cafe Latte flavor, I get both the coffee flavor and a meal. THEREFORE I am saving money (especially with my 25% off discount) and getting all the nutrients I need for the day. DOUBLE. FREAKING. WIN.
There are NO artificial sweeteners, flavors, fillers OR preservatives. There are now SEVEN different flavors, TWO Vegan options.
So yes, there might be CHEAPER options but for my health, there really is no other competition. You get what you pay for.
