Review: Shakeology Nutritional Health Supplement & Meal Replacement Protein Shake
There are a lot of great ingredients in Shakeology…including whey protein, which is an excellent protein source (they use the isolate, which has less lactose and more protein per serving). They also provide protein in the form of pea fiber. Other key ingredients include Maca powder (an excellent natural energy supplement that provides minerals), flax and chia seeds (more protein and omega-3s), plus plenty of greens (AFA spirulina, spinach, chlorella, seaweeds, and an assortment of grasses). Some of the special herbs provided in this formulation include ashwaganda (energy and circulation support), green tea extract, and basil powder. The formula has a bit of filler in the form of grains, apple pectin (which also acts as a natural emulsifier), and even the Maca can be regarded as a filler (although it has excellent nutritional properties too).
This formulation is especially suited for anyone wanting a meal replacement for a healthy weight loss program or anyone wanting more healthy protein, including vegetarians (if dairy is ok), athletes, body builders, and those suffering from low-energy and low blood pressure. Compared to other protein powders, this one is one of the best. At $2.36 per ounce, it’s a good deal for healthy protein supplement and nutrition.
This patent-pending daily nutritional shake helps your body gently eliminate toxins more efficiently while allowing for better absorption of the essential nutrients you need. A proprietary blend of digestive enzymes and prebiotics helps your body progressively eliminate the toxins that build up over time from eating today’s highly processed foods.
At the same time, whole-food ingredients deliver the essential amino acids, vitamins, and minerals your body needs to curb cravings, allowing your body to shed stored fat while the more than 20 different antioxidants and phytonutrients help reduce free radical damage that can lead to heart disease, heart attacks, high blood pressure, and stroke.
Sweet and creamy. Sweetened with stevia, apple, fructose, and natural flavors (chocolate, vanilla, etc.)
Ingredients & Nutritional Facts
Excellent source of protein and nutrients for a healthy meal replacement. Plus it has plenty of greens.
Not everyone will want whey protein, as it’s a dairy product. However, for those who can tolerate whey, it’s one of the best protein sources you can get…better than any meat.
Add 1 full scoop (48 g) of Shakeology powder to 1 cup (8 fl . oz.) cold water or beverage (milk, soy milk, rice milk, etc.) and mix. It can also be mixed in a blender with ice for a creamy, frosty smoothie.
