SHAKEOLOGY – The FACTS:
I read the following post from a Certified Nutritionist about Shakeology and had to share. To all my friends who are drinking shakeology….you’ll love this and will feel great that you are drinking it ;) To those that are not drinking it, you might want to reconsider ☺ …..Shakeology is NOT a protein shake. Nor is it a weight loss shake. It is a 100% natural (Macro and micro) nutrient dense meal replacement. It is not a one-dimensional protein shake. The fact that some people say it tastes like “grass, lawn clippings and cheap chocolate” is actually a selling point. Our taste buds have been so “brainwashed” on what real whole foods actually taste like, that we generally don’t know natural real whole cocoa from processed chocolate. Because Shakeology IS 100% natural (created by a vegan with a masters in nutrition and agricultural anthropology) the standard to remain natural does not allow for ANY artificial flavors, colors, stimulants, sweeteners or chemically modified micronutrients. Nearly every single product found in gyms, GNC, internet, you name it, have a LARGE amount of man made chemicals dumped in it so that it tastes appealing to the general public’s ”idea” of what food SHOULD taste like. The fact that it tastes the way it does is my point. When you add ONLY what nature provides, you get the CLEANEST and PUREST product possible. On to the super-foods I don’t expect the average person that follows you to know what Astragalus Root, Ashwagandha Root, Chia Seed, Maca Root, Gogi Berries and Reishi Mushrooms are (just to name a few super foods, Ill spare listing all 70). Nor do I expect them to have general knowledge in all the health benefits and medicinal treatments that these foods have notoriously been used for centuries to treat examples as reducing free radicals from our body, improving our white blood cell count which helps us fight disease, reducing inflammation (the number one marker of EVERY disease), improving the natural flora in our digestive system, etc. If BB grew these products in a lab and modified them to keep them cheap, that would be one thing, but EACH of the 70 super foods are imported from the countries, climates and pure soil they originate from and then dried to a specific protocol to maintain a whole food- absorption integrity. Everyone should value this $4 meal. I first hand, have hundreds of clients that Shakeology has reduced their needs for diabetic meds, statins and ace inhibitors. Its also relieved countless cases of IBS, colitis, and arthritis. To my clients, paying $4 and getting off their pricey side-effect laden medication is MUCH cheaper and a price well worth $129 for a month supply.
