Mike and I have been religiously enjoying Shakeology for almost a year now. My favorite flavor is Strawberry and Mike’s is Chocolate. Shakeology also comes in a Greenberry flavor ( but I must admit that this is not our favorite flavor). Beachbody touts Shakeology as being “The Healthiest Meal of the Day”. Based on how we feel, I would say that I would have to agree. Not only are the shakes healthy, they also taste great and are quick and easy to make. But what exactly makes this meal replacement so special?
Shakeology’s web site indicates that the shake is made with a “proprietary blend of digestive enzymes, prebiotics, and probiotics helps your body eliminate toxins that have built up in your digestive system over the years due to eating highly processed foods, fast food, and junk food. A healthy digestive system makes it easier to absorb the nutrients you need for optimal health.”
Shakeology’s ingredient list boasts more than 70 of the world’s most potent, most nutritious, and most delicious ingredients. From a wide range of fruits and vegetables that you should be eating anyway, to incredibly nutritious “mega foods” that are not typically available locally.
The folks at Beachbody have spent and exhaustive amount of time and effort to carefully select each ingredient in each serving of Shakeology for its unique nutritional quality. Again, from the Shakeology web site, these include “ingredients that herbalists and natural wellness doctors have been using for centuries to holistically heal and fuel the body”. I’ll take their word for it. For Mike and I, all we know is that we like the taste and we feel better when we have a shake each day.
