The Nutrition Puzzle Simplified
Our health & wellness as a puzzle – there are many, many pieces yet it isn’t a complete picture unless all the elements are there.
BUT…life happens, and pieces are lost.
For me, I work, play, chauffeur, spectate, negotiate, support, parent, wife, friend…whew! So there’s never a guarantee that I’m gonna be able to do my absolute best, even if it’s the goal.
Finding a way to fit it all in……..
- Good food
- Me time
- Them time
Being healthy could be a full time job!
I got on the meal replacement bandwagon almost a decade ago when an afternoon TV show host made the case for starting my day with a smoothie. They said it could start the day off right, potentially kickstart my habits when I went off track, and help fill in the nutrient gaps.
However, my first smoothies were more like calorie & sugar packed shakes. As I evolved, so did my shakes, and what I was looking for in my breakfast.
With Shakeology®, I found I was able to confidently simplify and take some of the guesswork out out of eating right.
Shakeology® is made with the healthy stuff you should be eating every day, but typically don’t, or can’t get with just food – even with the best of nutrition.
Shakeology® is a perfect blend of proteins, phytonutrients, antioxidants, enzymes, prebiotics, and probiotics.
The many rare ingredients, including adaptogens, camu-camu, and maca root – things we can’t get from an ordinary diet, go to work on our immune system, our inflammation and works from the inside out.
Shakeology® can be many things to many folks, maybe weight loss, maybe to optimize your health. Either way this powerful and delicious shake is Your Daily Dose of Dense Nutrition®.
What Shakeology® Really Does for You.
What is so special about Shakeology® and what can it do for me? While each person’s body is unique and different, here are just a few of the effects someone taking Shakeology® on a regular basis should experience.
Antioxidants. Shakeology® contains some of the most potent antioxidants: flavonoids and phytonutrients such as spinach, blue green algae, carrot powder, strawberry powder, and vitamins E and C. These help to prevent free radicals from oxidizing and destroying cells. The ingredients in our antioxidant blend such as pomegranate, acai berry, camu-camu, goji, and blueberry also have powerful antioxidant effects to support your immune system and help protect your body from normal inflammatory response.
Energy. Shakeology® contains a range of B vitamins and trace minerals, like zinc and magnesium, from whole food sources that regulate metabolism and increase energy. Shakeology® also contains maca root, an adaptagen herb known to promote endurance and stamina. Check out our Ingredient Spotlight on maca root to learn more.
Digestion. The Shakeology® non-dairy prebiotic and probiotic blend contains fiber and different enzymes like amylase, papain, cellulose, and lactase, which all support digestion. These ingredients aid in breaking down food molecules into smaller molecules that can be properly digested, so all of the nutrients can be absorbed into your system.
Mood. One scoop of Shakeology® provides 100% of the daily recommended intake of vitamin B12. B12 is often linked with good mood maintenance; B vitamins are also essential for the production and proper functioning of neurotransmitters like dopamine, crucial to the experience of pleasure. Shakeology® also contains cacao, which is very high in phenylethylamine (PEA). PEA acts as a neuromodulator to enhance one’s mood.
Detoxification. Many of the ingredients in Shakeology® (spirulina, chlorella, flaxseed, barley grass, spinach) contain powerful detoxification compounds such as chlorophyll and alpha-linolenic acid. These ingredients may help rid the body of environmental toxins such as smog, heavy metals, herbicides, cleaning products, and pesticides. They also aid in liver detoxification. Shakeology® also includes kamut grass, an ingredient coined “nature’s most powerful detoxifier.” This grass has been known to cleanse the body and detoxify the cells to restore health and vitality.
Immunity. The antioxidants, bioflavanoids, and flavanoids in Shakeology® work to support immunity. Some of these ingredients include ashwaganda, acerola cherry, rose hips, and goji berries. The goji berries in Shakeology® are one of the richest sources of antioxidants; not only does goji berry promote eye, reproductive, and circulatory health, but it also supports your immune system and promotes longevity!
Satiety/cravings. The protein, chromium, and nutrient-dense calories from superfoods in Shakeology® work to help decrease your appetite. Chromium is important because it helps maintain blood-sugar levels, which reduces sugar cravings and promotes fat metabolism. Plus, protein-rich meals are a great way to keep you feeling full, longer!
Complete nutrition: Each Shakeology® ingredient plays an important role in feeding your body on a cellular level, but it is important to remember that the synergy of the 70+ ingredients working together is what truly fuels your body to keep you looking and feeling your best.
WOW! That’s pretty cool!!! Don’t take my word for it or even the company’s word for it. Try it out for yourself and see how you can feel better than today.
