According to pediatrician, Dr. Randi Edwards, Shakeology is one of the only products she ever saw that actually contains whole food derivatives. Whole foods have a more synergistic effect on your body than just taking a bunch of vitamins.
Our bodies undergo oxidative stress every day. When our body metabolizes food, it naturally produces its own antioxidants to counteract oxidative stress as a defense mechanism. Sometimes we overeat and create more free radicals than our bodies can handle. Also, conditions like diabetes create more free radicals.
That’s where Shakeology comes in. Shakeology contains some important ingredients called phytonutrients which counteract the oxidative stress. Foods like phytonutrients are broken down and digested, thereby producing the same compounds that our body uses. The more phytonutrients you can get from a drink like Shakeology, the better able your body can counteract free radicals.
The ingredients in Shakeology contain a powerful phytonutrient super-green blend of Chlorella, Spirulina, Hydrilla, Blue green algae, Spinach powder, Barley grass, Kamut grass (Triticum turgidum), Oat grass, and Wheat grass (Triticum aestirum).
The four primary Wild Grasses in Shakeology deliver a lot of nutrients.
- Wheatgrass – Loaded with numerous vitamins and minerals, including 17 amino acids. It’s high in chlorophyll, calcium, magnesium, and potassium.
- Barley Grass – It has 18 amino acids and has been known to regulate your blood sugar.
- Oat Grass – Promotes healthy cholesterol levels which helps lowers your risk for heart disease. It’s also a great source of protein and rich in vitamins, minerals, and essential amino acids.
- Kamut – With protein, selenium, and other high energy essentials, it’s nutritional content is more robust than most other grains.
Phytonutrients are just one family of ingredients in Shakeology. You can experience amazing healthy benefits from just these.
In today’s world, studies show that less than half of Americans eat enough fruits and vegetables to get your daily dose of nutrients. You can’t afford NOT to drink Shakeology!
