So, you've seen me talking about Shakeology and how I enjoy my daily shake. Perhaps you're wondering why I love it and what's actually in it that makes it so great. I can tell you until I'm blue in the face that it's helped me lose weight, reduce cravings and give me more energy. I can also give you countless of examples of other people who've experienced these benefits and more. But how do you know it'll do the same for you. Well, you don't but let me give you some facts about Shakeology that might help you realize why it's bound to have an affect on you.
First, Shakeology contains natural ingredients from all over earth. We're talking places like the Andes, the Amazon, the Himalayas, Costa Rica, and Canada. Most of this stuff you’ve never heard of, but the ingredients in Shakeology are life-changers called Superfoods.
What’s a superfood? Superfood is the collective name given to the most nutrient-dense foods on our planet. They go beyond meeting basic nutritional needs; in addition, they have high concentrations of multiple nutrients, such as antioxidants, phytonutrients, or adaptogens that work together to support the immune system and help fight aging.*
So what's in it and what's in it for you?
I promise you that I'm someone who looks at the ingredients of all the food I buy. I'm picky about Non-GMO and Organic food believing that the less ingredients in a dish, the healthier and more natural it is. I steer my family away from eating processed and junk food whenever possible. I've done my homework and feel confident that Shakeology is full of good, natural ingredients. It's not certified organic only because of some of the places where the ingredients are sourced. Due to Shakeology's exotic sourcing, certifying every exotic ingredient is very complex.
Here's what you get:
PROTEINS and AMINO ACIDS are important elements because help build and repair muscles, reduce hunger and food cravings, support optimal brain function, improve your mood, and promote healthy skin, hair, and nails. Your body NEEDS proteins and amino acids to thrive.
ANTIOXIDANTS neutralize molecules known as free radicals. These free radicals damage your body and are natural by-products that our cells produce, and if you don’t have enough antioxidants to absorb free radicals, they overwhelm your cells, oxidizing and destroying them.
PHYTONUTRIENTS are the active elements found in fruits, vegetables, grains, legumes, nuts, and teas. All the green superfoods in Shakeology contain phytonutrients that are known to promote a healthy immune system, healthy aging, and help to detoxify and alkalinize the body.
That means a neutral, healthy state of acid in the body. Unfortunately, the American diet is comprised of way too many acidic foods—things like soda, energy drinks, coffee, alcohol, pasta, and processed deli meat. An acidic environment in the body may lead to disease. Drinking these phytonutrients counteract this and provide better health (especially if you hate veggies or struggle to eat enough of them).
ADAPTOGEN HERBS are special herbs that often grow in harsh climates and conditions, at high elevations and on mountaintops where the soil is rocky and oxygen is thin. Because these plants have to adapt to very harsh conditions, they have been traditionally said to have highly concentrated nutrients that can help your body cope with stress, and help neutralize harmful free radicals.
PREBIOTICS and PROBIOTICS act as “food” that fuels the growth of probiotics (the good bacteria) that are naturally found in your intestines. They assist your body in absorbing nutrients and minerals, bringing an overall balance to the digestive tract while helping support your immune system.
DIGESTIVE ENZYMES help your body break food down into its individual components, making nutrients easier to absorb. Because cooking can destroy foods’ natural digestive enzymes, there’s a very good chance that you don’t get enough of these enzymes in an average diet.
VITAMINS and MINERALS since most of us don’t get the complete range of vitamins and minerals in our daily diets.
