I believe that my body is my most valuable asset and that I should treat it as such. If someone buys a high-end car, they'd only fill it with premium gasoline, right? Yet, the majority of people choose to fuel their bodies (which are far more valuable than any fancy car) with processed garbage. It just doesn't make sense to me. In contrast, I choose to invest in my body because it will be around a lot longer than any expensive car or handbag.
I try to eat as many organic, whole foods as possible. I gag at the thought of fast-food mystery meat. So believe me, I did not make the decision to try Shakeology quickly or easily!
I did lots and lots of research. I watched every video on the internet, read every review, and asked my coach a million questions. At the time, I was waking up in the wee hours of the morning to blend my own homemade, organic concoctions and juice green vegetables until my hands literally turned green! I was spending hundreds of dollars on my own smoothies, using chia seeds, flax meal, maca powder, goji berries, pea protein powder, coconut milk, acai powder, cacao powder, and other pricey ingredients.
When I learned that Shakeology contained ALL of these superfoods PLUS more, I decided to give it a 30 day trial. After one week, I was hooked. Nothing beats the convenience of ALL of the superfoods packed into ONE powder. This saved me hundreds of dollars and 10 minutes each morning! Additionally, I was able to vary my flavors (my palate gets bored rather quickly). When I was making my own smoothies, I was bound to the same flavor every morning. I have tried EVERY Shakeology flavor and LOVE them all!
Here is my ranking in order of preference:
- Vegan Chocolate
- Cafe Latte
- Vegan Cafe Latte
- Vegan Vanilla
- Vegan Strawberry
What is the overall benefit?
Here are the reasons I continue to drink it! These are MY personal experiences and testimonies:
- Increased energy levels
- Improved digestion (I've struggled with IBS my entire life)
- Cost (While it seems pricey, I challenge you to find or make a comparable meal-replacement drink for a cheaper price. You get what you pay for!)
- Curb cravings (I have a serious sweet tooth! I was raised by Italian grandparents and was served freshly baked cookies for breakfast before school. I could eat nothing but desserts ALL day long! So Shakeology provides the sweetness I crave, but with the nutrients I need.)
- Superfood blast (and the powder can be used to make no-bake treats!)- REPLACES my prenatal vitamin (I drank it every day while pregnant and breastfeeding)

What is it?
Shakeology is a delicious superfood shake containing over 70 whole food ingredients and 23 vitamins and minerals. It would take several trips to the salad bar to eat the same amount of nutrients that are packed inside every Shakeology shake! But these shakes don't taste like a salad, they are made from the finest whole-food sources that are available from around the world and taste AMAZING!
Shakeology can help you:
- Lose Weight
- Feel Energized
- Increase Metabolism
- Improve Digestion and Regularity
- Lower Cholesterol
It's SO much more than a protein shake!
Can you get ALL that is in Shakeology in other meal replacement shakes? Absolutely not! I have compared numerous supplement and meal replacements shakes (most of which are full of added sugars and additives) and none compare to the wide array of nutrients provided in one glass of Shakeology.
Thousands of daily Shakeology customers were surveyed to see what they thought of our superfood shake! See what they said!

How Shakeology Works
This superfood shake helps your body gently eliminate toxins more efficiently while allowing for better absorption of the essential nutrients you need. A proprietary blend of digestive enzymes, prebiotics, and probiotics helps your body progressively eliminate the toxins that build up over time from eating today’s highly processed foods.
At the same time, whole-food ingredients deliver the essential amino acids, vitamins, and minerals your body needs to curb cravings, allowing your body to shed stored fat, while more than 20 different antioxidants and phytonutrients help reduce free radical damage that can lead to heart disease, heart attacks, high blood pressure, and stroke.
More than 70 different ingredients were chosen from around the world for their potency and bioavailability (the ability to deliver the nutrients your body needs).
Key nutrient groups these ingredients deliver:
Protein and Essential Amino Acids to help build long, lean muscles and reduce food cravings
Prebiotics and Digestive Enzymes, which aid in improving digestion, regularity, and nutrient absorption
Antioxidants and Phytonutrients to help counteract free radical damage that can lead to degenerative diseases
Vitamins and Minerals your body needs to function for optimal health
Protein and Essential Amino Acids Benefits:
- Helps build and repair muscles
- Reduces hunger and food cravings
- Helps keep blood sugar steady
- Supports brain function to help promote alert thinking and reduce anxiety
- Promotes healthy skin, hair & nails
Shakeology includes whey protein isolate, an easily absorbable source of high-quality protein that’s ideal for building and maintaining lean muscle mass. It also helps keep your blood sugar steady, reducing hunger and junk food cravings. Essential amino acids, found in protein, help the body repair muscle tissue and heal wounds, support the brain to promote calmness and alertness, and reduce hunger pangs. The whey protein in Shakeology provides a highly bioavailable source of essential amino acids.
Prebiotics, Probiotics, & Digestive Enzymes Benefits:
- Aids digestion
- Helps boost the immune system
- Increases absorption of nutrients
- Helps keep you “regular”
Shakeology contains many ingredients that are beneficial to the digestive system. Prebiotics, natural components of certain plants, help support the “friendly” bacteria in your digestive tract. They may also help with the absorption of minerals such as calcium. Digestive enzymes, from plant sources such as pineapples and papayas, help your body break down food into its individual components, making the nutrients easier to absorb. Cooking can destroy food’s natural digestive enzymes, so there’s a good chance that you don’t get enough of them in your diet. Probiotics are also used in Shakeology in the form of Bacillus Coagulans, which is a powerful strain proven to survive the acids in the stomach and reach the intestine where it is intended to function.
Antioxidants and Phytonutrients Benefits:
- Eliminates harmful free radicals
- Helps decrease inflammation
- Helps boost your immune system
- Potentially decreases the risk of degenerative diseases
- May even increase longevity
The Proprietary Super-Fruit/Antioxidant blend promotes antioxidant support for a healthy immune system, heart, and optimal blood pressure.
Vitamin and Mineral Benefits:
- Helps to increase nutrient absorption
- Aids in stroke reduction
- Improves oxygen utilization efficiency
- Strengthens tooth enamel
- Improves thyroid function
- Strengthens immune system
- Increases metabolism
- Promotes healthy skin, hair, and nails
- Regulates blood sugar
- Decreases the acceleration of skin and muscle aging
Vitamins and Minerals include: Folic Acid, Biotin, Pantothenic acid, Phosphorous, Iodine, Magnesium, Zinc, Copper, Manganese, Chromium.
