Common Shakeology QUESTIONS

Here are some common questions when it comes to Shakeology:

When’s the best time to drink Shakeology?

The good news is, there is no right or wrong time to drink Shakeology. For someone doing intense workouts like P90X or Insanity, it can be effective as a pre-workout, post-workout, or any time during the day when your energy is flagging and you need a pick-me-up. Personally, I drink mine an hour or two before bed. For me, it serves as a dessert and replenishes my body after a hard day’s workout and I go to bed satisfied. Sometimes, I even add a second Shakeology mid-morning.

Is Shakeology safe for diabetics?

It’s always important to check with your doctor first. However, Shakeology is a low-caloric meal replacement, with a lower glycemic index than most meals, it should be acceptable for most people with diabetes. Plus, it’s GLUTEN-FREE!

Should I continue to take other multivitamins along with Shakeology?

Because of the way Shakeology is formulated, one shake pretty much covers your body’s normal daily requirement for vitamins and minerals.

Shakeology mentions “whole-food ingredients”—what does this mean?

Shakeology uses several whole-food sources of nutrients rather than using only synthetic extracts or isolates (like some multivitamin pills). The benefit of whole-food-derived ingredients is that the nutrients are preserved as close to their natural state as possible and are therefore delivered to your body in the most holistic way possible. Your body will better absorb and more efficiently use the nutrients from whole-food sources. The process of converting a food from its natural state to a powder, if done incorrectly, can destroy the nutrients in that food. With Shakeology, we ensure the highest levels of nutrients are preserved through strict temperature-controlled drying and processing.

Is Shakeology safe for kids?

Because the needs of every child may vary, please check with your pediatrician. However, since Shakeology is a healthy drink with low sugar and a wide variety of nutrients, it is a much healthier option than many other drinks or snacks on the market and should be appropriate for most children over the age of 6. You may want to start out with a smaller serving size until you are sure of the child’s tolerance. It is not recommended to be given as a meal replacement for children younger than six years old without first checking with your pediatrician.

What about pregnant women and nursing mothers?

Shakeology should only be taken by pregnant women and nursing mothers under the direction of their physicians.

I’m vegetarian – Is Shakeology for me?

In chocolate and greenberry flavors, the only non-vegetarian ingredient is whey protein, which comes from milk. HOWEVER,  there are two VEGAN flavored Shakeology’s – vegan Tropical Strawberry and vegan Chocolate.

Does Shakeology contain caffeine?

While it does contain green tea extract the caffeine has been removed and so Shakeology is caffeine free!

Why is the cost so high?

The Shakeology price is $4/serving. Shakeology has been designed as a meal. So, you’re paying $4 for a meal that is 100% natural, filled with over 70 superfoods, antioxidants, phyto-nutrients, pre-biotics, digestive enzymes, protein, vitamins and minerals, etc. It literally has everything your body needs so that you maintain optimal health.

The Shakeology ingredient list, the fact that it’s 100% natural, and what those ingredients can do for you in itself should prove to you that the Shakeology price is totally worth it. Again, Shakeology is incredible stuff and can help to lower your cholesterol, improve your digestion and regularity, as well as to reduce your cravings, increase your energy, and lose weight! There are success stories out the wazoo, just Google them!!
