Shakeology…. Cool name, but what is it? Why is it more expensive than other protein powders? Why do I drink it everyday? Usually those questions are the top 3 that I get asked when I discuss Shakeology.

Shakeology is a MEAL REPLACEMENT shake. That’s the first way that it’s different than other protein powders out there. It’s not JUST protein. It’s protein, carbohydrates and healthy fats. That’s all the macronutrients that you need for a balanced meal.

The protein in Shakeology is varied and does not come from one single source. Because of this the protein is digested at different rates and helps you repair muscle and stay full for a longer period of time.  Regular Shakeology uses these proteins: Whey protein isolate, chia seeds, flax, quinoa, amaranth and pea. In the vegan versions you’ll find: chia seeds, flax, quinoa, amaranth, rice, pea and oat.

Okay, so it has protein, carbs and fats and you’re reading this thinking….umm, I can find that other places too. But here’s what sets Shakeology apart. It’s full of vitamins, minerals, probiotics and digestive enzymes.  There are 23 different vitamins and minerals in Shakeology to be exact, including: Vitamins A, C, D, E, and K, Vitamins B1, B2, B3, B6 and B12, Biotin, Pantothenic Acid, Folic Acid, Calcium, Chromium, Copper, Iodine, Iron, Magnesium, Manganese, Molybdenum, Phosphorus and Zinc.

Next, Shakeology has the Prebiotic, Yacon root. The reason that there is a PREbiotic in Shakeology is so that the PRObiotic can thrive. The Probiotic is Bacillus coagulans, and like Erin Andrews says on those commercials… probiotics keep your digestive system healthy and regular. The digestive enzymes help you break down food. The digestive enzymes are really helpful for people who suffer from irritable bowel syndrome!

Now, it’s on to how we actually sweeten Shakeology. Unlike other meal replacement shakes, Shakeology does NOT contain artificial sweeteners. It contains STEVIA and Fructose (the sugar found in fruit).

THAT’S how Shakeology is different. And when you break down the cost, it’s less than $4/serving.

What I really want to get across is that Shakeology is packed with stuff that if you buy it separately would cost you around $250. Instead, its in one scoop.  

So give it a shot, and when you fall in love… I can tell you how to save 25% on your shipment!
