In a 90-day controlled study by medicus research, Shakeology has been clinically proven to increase satiety, aid in weight loss, lower cholesterol, and lower blood sugar. The only variable that was changed in the participants everyday routine was they drank Shakeology for breakfast and lunch. No other changes were made to their nutrition or exercise regimen.
The study revealed drinking Shakeology for breakfast lead to statistically significant reductions in the desire to eat at lunch. Participants lost on average 10 pounds and even up to 24 pounds in 90 days. They continued to lose weight slowly and steadily throughout the study, which is the healthiest way to lose weight. Cholesterol was reduced by 7 to 50%, below the level where a physician would recommend a medication to control cholesterol. The blood sugar was reduced on average 5% over 90 days and up to 19% in some cases, reducing the risk of diabetes.
What is in Shakeology?
Protein and Essential Amino Acids which build and repair muscles,* reduce hunger and food cravings, and promote healthy skin, hair, and nails* The regular formulas of strawberry, vanilla, chocolate and greenberry Shakeology are made from whey protein isolate, an easily absorbable source of high-quality protein. This is ideal for building and maintaining lean muscle mass. Vegan tropical strawberry and vegan chocolate Shakeology are made from high-quality plant proteins; sprouted brown rice, pea and other sources. Essential amino acids found in these proteins support your body in repairing muscle tissue and wound healing, and reduce hunger cravings. The protein in all Shakeology products provides a highly bioavailable source of essential amino acids.
Prebiotics, Probiotics and Digestive Enzymes which all perform different functions in the body but are all beneficial. Prebiotics are natural components of certain plants and help support the “friendly” bacteria in your digestive tract. Probiotics are strains of live good bacteria that help with the digestive process. They assist the body in absorbing nutrients and minerals, bring an overall balance to the digestive tract, supporting the immune system and increase regularity.Digestive enzymes support your body in breaking food down into its individual components allowing your body to easily absorb their nutrients.
Adaptogens promote a strong immune system, increase energy, protect the body from stress, and balance endocrine hormones and the immune system. Adaptogens are special herbs that grow in harsh climates and conditions. They grow on mountain tops at high elevations where the soil is rocky and oxygen in the air is thin. They must adapt to these harsh conditions leading them to contain highly concentrated nutrients. These nutrients support your body in coping with stress, provide energy, and maintain a strong, healthy immune system. Shakeology has a total of 9 adaptogens, which is more than any other shake on the market.
Antioxidants and phytonutrients (plant-sourced ingredients) may support you in maintaining health, neutralizing harmful free radicals, decreasing inflammation, maintaining the immune system, and potentially decreasing the risk of degenerative diseases. Shakeology contains a variety of fruits and vegetables that were specifically chosen for their high concentration of healthy natural substances known as phytonutrients, flavonoids, polyphenols, anthocyanins, and catechins. These substances have antioxidant properties, meaning they help neutralize free radicals. Free radicals are known to damage cells and may contribute to the aging process. In laboratory tests, phytonutrients have shown promise in aiding in prevention of a wide variety of degenerative conditions.
23 Vitamins and Minerals to support your body in functioning at optimal healthy, getting a wide range of essential nutrients, getting your necessary vitamins everyday, and making up for dietary deficiencies. Most of our diets nowadays are missing essential vitamins and minerals. Some important vitamins, such as vitamin C and the B vitamins, are water-soluble. This basically means they’re flushed out of your body after a short time and need to be replenished regularly. Vitamin E can be difficult to get enough of in the food we eat. Regular strawberry, vanilla, chocolate and greenberry Shakeology provide all these nutrients in a delicious shake that is easy to drink on-the-go. Vegan tropical strawberry and vegan chocolate Shakeology do not have the vitamin and mineral ingredients on the label. They are not fortified with vitamins as are the regular whey formulas.
