Shakeology Super Foods Explained

The Shakeology Nutrition Facts are not easy to understand because there’s so many different ingredients in Shakeology.

Sure, it’s easy to understand what calories, total fat, protein, sugars, and other simple things are BUT Shakeology isn’t so simple like many meal replacement shakes. Instead, Shakeology has several super foods in it that most people have never heard of.

For example, Yacon Root, Chicory Root, Maca, Astragalus, Ashwagandha, Maitake Mushroom, Cordyceps, Reishi Mushroom, Schisandra, Ginkgo, and Tulsi [Holy Basil].

 

So I am going to break it all down for you in a series of pages and posts; and share with you some of the amazing things that are in Shakeology! I will share with you why I believe that it is truly the best on the market!! Shakeology is not a protein shake! Some call it a meal replacement shake, but what it really is a does of Super Nutrition Super Food!!

As someone who has suffered most of their life with Autoimmune diseases, digestive diseases, I learned the hard way that what goes into my body is the most important to improving my health!!

Beachbody experts get the ingredients for Shakeology from rich, nutrient-dense whole-food sources from around the world. The sources are researched extensively before being used in Shakeology!!

Places like the Andes, the Amazon, the Himalayas, Costa Rica, and even Canada. While Western Civilization knows little about these superfoods, other areas have been enjoying the benefits of these super foods for centuries.

If you want  to check out the Shakeology Nutritional Facts on your own, you can view them here according to the flavor.

***Please Note; The Shakeology Vegan flavors are NOT fortified with added vitamins and mineral isolates like the non-Vegan flavors and therefore are not listed on the Nutrition Facts because the vitamin and mineral profile varies from the ingredient sourcing. This is expected because even oranges from the same tree will have different levels of vitamin C. The nutrition in the Vegan Shakeology flavors, truly, only comes from the Shakeology ingredients.

I have had many people ask me what the heck is a “ superfood?” A superfood is a collective name given to the most nutrient-dense foods on our planet.

These superfoods go beyond meeting basic nutritional needs; in addition, they have high concentrations of multiple nutrients, such as antioxidants, phytonutrients, and adaptogens that work together to support the immune system and help fight aging. Because of the superfoods in Shakeology, Shakeology has been clinically proven to:

  • Help with continuous weight loss over time
  • Lower your cholesterol
  • And lower your blood sugar

AND… Shakeology reviews have also reported the following:

  • Reduced hunger & food cravings
  • Healthier skin, hair, and nails
  • Increased energy
  • Boosted immune system
  • Improved digestion & regularity

So I am going to share with you a few of my favorite superfoods that you’ll find in  Shakeology !!
