What exactly is Shakeology?

It’s a conundrum people face in kitchens the world over: You want to eat healthy, but you don’t know where to start. Oh, and you kind of don’t like vegetables.

Shakeology to the rescue!! But what’s actually in this shake? Are the ingredients legit healthy? Is it a meal replacement or just a protein shake? Why should I drink it?

Let’s get some answers to your most pressing Shakeology questions:

In a nutshell, Shakeology is a nutrient-dense superfood protein shake that’s formulated with globally harvested ingredients that supply phytonutrients, antioxidants, enzymes, prebiotics and probiotics, fiber, adaptogens, vitamins, and minerals.

Without good nutrition, your body may struggle to perform the basics. And things like going above and beyond or taking on new challenges? That’s even harder.

That’s why there is so much care into creating Shakeology. Iur proprietary formula is made with a potent blend of high-quality proteins, probiotics, fiber, digestive enzymes, antioxidants, superfoods, vitamins, and minerals — unique nutrients that are pretty hard to get from the average diet, let alone track down in a grocery store.

This precise combination of ingredients is as complex as your body’s needs. When you start your day with a healthy foundation, you’re able to build a more meaningful life.

Beachbody searches the world over for the best quality ingredients. Before anything makes it into our shakes, hundreds of hours of work go into vetting and testing both the ingredient and the supplier.

This helps ensure that each new ingredient is of the highest quality and complements what’s already in the mix.

The Benefits of Shakeology
So, why should you drink it? Shakeology’s powerful and premium formula can help support healthy energy, curb junk-food cravings, and support digestive health, all to help you lose weight as part of a Beachbody health and fitness program.*

In addition, the nutrition in Shakeology can help you get better results when you pair it with killer workout programs like the SHIFT SHOP or CORE DE FORCE.*

Shakeology Ingredients
• Proteins and fiber: Help reduce hunger and junk-food cravings.*

• Antioxidants, phytonutrients, vitamins, and minerals: Help fight free-radical damage, while helping your body support a healthy immune system.*

• Adaptogen herbs: Traditionally used to help your body adapt and respond to the effects of stress.*

• Prebiotics, probiotics, digestive enzymes, and fiber: Help your body absorb nutrients as well as support regularity and healthy digestion.*

Is There Sugar in Shakeology?
Shakeology has about seven grams of sugar per serving (eight grams in Café Latte) from a combination of organic cane sugar and the various superfood fruit powders.

To put this into perspective, there are 14 grams of sugar in a medium banana and 19 grams of sugar in a medium apple.

Is Shakeology a Meal Replacement?
On its own, Shakeology does not replace a meal, but it can be a part of a balanced meal when combined with other healthy foods like fruits, nuts, seeds, nut butters, avocados, or various milks.

Drink a morning shake with a healthy breakfast that has a mix of carbs, protein, and fat and you’ll be setting yourself up for success for the rest of the day.

When Should I Drink Shakeology?
If you’re not a morning shake drinker, you can have it whenever you’re hungry. Shakeology is loaded with protein, fiber, and wholesome ingredients, all of which work together to help keep you satisfied.

And because Shakeology helps reduce junk-food cravings, you’ll be less likely to pig out on stuff that you’ll regret later.*

How Many Calories Are in Shakeology?
Shakeology contains between 140 and 170 calories per serving, depending on the flavor. Keep in mind: As you add fruit, nut butters, and milk, that number starts to climb.

Even when you’re eating healthy foods, like smoothie bowls or shakes, it’s important keep an eye on all the add-ins so it doesn’t turn into a calorie bomb.

Is Shakeology a Protein Shake?
All that protein + other macro- and micronutrients + superfoods makes Shakeology a multidimensional premium nutritional supplement, not just a protein shake.

What Are Superfoods?
“Superfood” isn’t an officially recognized term, but you can think of them as foods that are nutrient-dense and considered to be beneficial for health and well-being.

Common superfoods include foods like blueberries, salmon, nuts, legumes, seeds, and whole grains. Less widely available superfoods include foods such as bee pollen and mangosteen. Shakeology includes an array of superfoods like matcha, chaga, goji berry, and more.

What Protein Does Shakeology Contain?
Chocolate, Vanilla, Strawberry, Café Latte, and Greenberry Shakeology formulas are loaded with protein from whey protein isolate, yellow pea, sacha inchi, chia, flax, and quinoa.

What Protein Does Vegan Shakeology Contain?
The vegan Shakeology formulas all contain a proprietary blend of plant-based proteins, which is ideal for those who cannot tolerate — or choose to avoid — animal proteins, whey, or dairy.

The proteins in vegan Shakeology — pea, chia, flax, sacha inchi, quinoa, rice, and oat ingredients — are plant-based proteins that supply all nine essential amino acids (ones that our bodies can’t produce).

Is Shakeology Dairy-Free?
The four vegan flavors (Chocolate Vegan, Vanilla Vegan, Café Latte Vegan, Tropical Strawberry Vegan) are dairy- and soy-free.

Is Shakeology Gluten-Free?
There are no gluten-based ingredients in Shakeology; however, it’s not a certified gluten-free product. We take significant precautions to prevent any gluten-containing ingredients from being included in the product.

Is Shakeology Organic?
Since we globally source Shakeology ingredients, certifying every exotic ingredient is very complex. However, the possibility of a completely organic Shakeology is being researched. Stay tuned!

Does Shakeology Contain Any GMO Ingredients?
Shakeology is not certified GMO-free. However, special care has been taken in its formulation to exclude GMO-based ingredients such as soy, canola, and corn.

Ingredient suppliers are required to provide documentation to Beachbody on their position on GMO ingredients. The possibility of obtaining a third-party certification is currently being evaluated for Shakeology.

Why You’ll Love Drinking Shakeology Every Day
