How Does Shakeology Work?
Shakeology brands itself as an all-in-one meal replacement shake. The drink is intended to cover all your nutritional requirements in one serving. It contains an antioxidant blend, a protein blend, probiotics, a phytonutrient blend, minerals, vitamins, and enzymes.
Such nutrients and blends contain a single source of animal protein; whey protein (not every formulation). The drink also contains several plant sources, many of which come in isolated protein forms like hemp and pea. Coconut nectar and konjac are also included for their antioxidant elements.
In addition to helping your body absorb nutrients better, Shakeology is also said to have a detox effect on your body. Apparently, the drink can enhance levels of energy, regulate levels of blood sugar, maintain and build muscles, and various other health benefits.
Shakeology is comprised of the following ingredients: probiotic enzyme blend, whey protein, proprietary adaptogen blend, antioxidant/superfruit blend, chia, quinoa, Schisandra, sacha inchi, papain, pea, goji berry, camucamu, and amaranth. They all work together to increase levels of energy, improve health, enhance digestion, decrease food cravings, and help with weight-loss.
Shakeology comes in the following flavors: vanilla, chocolate, greenberry, strawberry, and chocolate vegan.
