Shakeology, Is It Worth The Money?

What Is It About Shakeology?
I just recently heard of Shakeology for the first time and there were lots of good things being said. I was already familiar with the Beachbody company and I knew they had quality products like P90X, Insanity and Hip Hop Abs. I had been doing P90X for a while so I decided to give it a try. I figured if Beachbody made it then it was worth checking out. So I decided to see for myself if it lived up to the hype surrounding it.
What attracted me to Shakeology was all the many nutrients it contained. It has 70 whole foods ingredients included and you just can't find that in other protein/supplement shakes. The nutrients are from whole food sources so they are natural and are more bioavailable, meaning they can be absorbed and used by the body more easily. This drink can also give you energy, help you lose weight, lower cholesterol, improve digestion and it replaces meals. So far, I think this drink is pretty impressive!

What's In It
Shakeology is packed full of nutrients gathered from all around the world to enhance your well being. Much research has been done to choose these particular nutrients. There is high quality protein and essential amino acids present that the body needs on a daily basis. The amount of protein needed by each individual varies depending on their Ideal Body Weight and activity level, but Shakeology helps everyone get a fair amount daily.
This high quality protein helps to build and repair muscles, reduces hunger and regulates blood sugar levels. It also supports brain function to make you more calm and alert. The protein also helps to promote wound healing, healthy skin, hair and nails.

The processed foods we eat sometimes causes us to improperly properly digest and break down the foods we eat. This can cause a buildup in our digestive tracts that hinders the absorption of nutrients in the foods we eat. Shakeology has prebiotics and digestive enzymes that support the "friendly" bacteria in our digestive tracts that breaks down foods completely. Once the foods are broken down into their natural components, we can easily absorb the nutrients needed for good maintenance and health.

Shakeology has many fruits and vegetables that are full of antioxidants and phytonutrients. They help to relieve inflammation, get rid of free radicals and lowers risk of degenerative diseases. The molecules known as free radicals are in each of our bodies and they are the main culprits that cause aging. So Shakeology may even help slow the aging process!

This wonder shake also has 23 natural vitamins and minerals. Some of them are essential meaning our bodies don't produce them so we have to get them from food. So Shakeology is a good whole foods multivitamin as well.

So How Does It Taste?
When I ordered my own Shakeology I got a month's supply of the mix of chocolate and berry flavors. I tried the chocolate flavored one first with milk and I have to say it was actually good. I don't even really like chocolate shakes but I can drink this one everyday with no problems! It is thick just like a milkshake and chocolaty. The berry flavor is quite tasty also. You can kick it up a notch with any types of fruit you like and even add ice to make it into a smoothie. The taste combined with all the health benefits makes Shakeology a winner in my book!

Why You Should Try It

A month's supply of Shakeology retails for $119.95. It is a bit pricey, but it is well worth it because of all the many health benefits. You have to look at it this way; either you spend a little money to improve and maintain your health today on a supplement like Shakeology or you may end up spending even more for medication and prescription drugs tomorrow. It's better to invest in your health now than to have to pay a fortune in medical fees when you are older. The money you spend on Shakeology is nothing in comparison to the potential costs of treating illnesses.
