I was clueless when I first heard about some of these ingredients in Shakeology! So I research a whole lot before deciding to try it!
So if you are like me hearing names like Sacha Inchi just makes you go “WHAATT”!! 😕
So here is what I know and love about 1 of the many Super ingredients in Shakeology and why it truly is the the best super food on the market!
This ingredient does SO much it’s naturally rich in protein and fiber, so it’s a strong appetite controller—Pure nature. Then it goes a step further by helping to speed your metabolism, so you burn those fewer calories you’ve consumed more efficiently and rapidly.
Sacha Inchi, also called the Inca peanut is a native seed found in the Peruvian jungle! This little nut is a complete plant based protein and seriously what is cooler than that? Nature win! They are often sold whole or in the form of oil but I hear they are great roasted and eaten like a peanut and even used as salad topping.
The seeds are an abundant source of tryptophan, an amino acid that can help promote a positive mood. The large percentage of omega-3 fatty acids (about 50%) also is well for supporting psychological wellness. Another positive characteristic about SI seeds is that they’re high in fat (14 grams per ounce), rich in protein (9 grams per ounce) and loaded with fiber (6 grams per ounce). This is like a natural prescription for fast and efficient appetite relief. Nothing promotes stable blood sugar levels and hunger satisfaction better than foods that are rich in these three macro nutrients.
Production of this little plant has been increasing as we gain more knowledge of omega-3 fatty acids and their importance in our diet.
Here are some more amazing benefits of Sacha Inchi……
Now I am not a Math wiz, but if I was to add up trying to get all this goodness It would be a lot of money!!! Just one pound bag of these nuts for $20 , 80z of a powder is $10 ( not much in 8 ounces), or you can just drink Shakeology for just $4 a glass.
Sacha Inchi is only one of 70 super food ingredients in Shakeology
