Shakeology: What Is It Exactly?
In a nutshell, Shakeology is a nutrient-dense superfood protein shake that’s formulated with globally harvested ingredients that supply phytonutrients, antioxidants, enzymes, pre- and probiotics, fiber, adaptogens, vitamins, and minerals.
Shakeology includes whole food-based ingredients that are as close to their natural state as possible to help maximize nutrition and still make it convenient for you to drink. No artificial sweeteners, colors, preservatives, or flavors.
Beachbody searches the world over for the best quality ingredients. Before anything makes it into our shakes, hundreds of hours of work go into vetting and testing both the ingredient and the supplier.
This helps ensure that each new ingredient is of the highest quality and complements what’s already in the mix.
We continuously strive to improve Shakeology, so in 2017, we introduced a new Shakeology formula with several additional benefits:
improved vitamin and mineral composition
matcha, chaga, and sacha inchi are now in all flavors, in both vegan and whey versions
So, why should you drink it? Shakeology’s powerful and premium formula can support healthy energy, curb junk food cravings, support digestive health, all to help you lose weight as part of a Beachbody health and fitness program.*
Shakeology has over 70 ingredients such as:
• Proteins and fiber: Helps reduce hunger and food cravings.
• Antioxidants, phytonutrients, vitamins, and minerals: Helps fight free radical damage, while helping your body support a healthy immune system.*
• Adaptogen herbs: Traditionally used to help your body adapt and respond to the effects of stress.
• Prebiotics, probiotics, digestive enzymes, and fiber: Helps your body absorb nutrients as well as supports regularity and healthy digestion.
Is Shakeology a Meal Replacement?
On its own, Shakeology does not replace a meal, but it can be a part of a balanced meal when combined with other healthy foods like fruits, nuts, seeds, nut butters, avocados, or various milks.
Drink a morning shake with a healthy breakfast that has a mix of carbs, protein, and fat and you’ll be setting yourself up for success for the rest of the day.
When Should I Drink Shakeology?
If you’re not a morning-shake drinker, you can have it whenever you’re hungry. Shakeology is loaded with protein, fiber, and wholesome ingredients, all of which work together to help keep you satisfied.
And because Shakeology helps reduce junk food cravings, you’ll be less likely to pig out on stuff that you’ll regret later.
Is Shakeology a Protein Shake?
All that protein + other macro- and micronutrients + superfoods makes Shakeology a multi-dimensional premium nutritional supplement, not just a protein shake.
