Beachbody, the inventors of popular in-home fitness programs P90X and Insanity, have created a meal replacement shake called Shakeology. Known as “the healthiest meal of the day”, this shake aims to curb your appetite and is made up of a plethora of unique and all-natural ingredients. Shakeology claims that it will help build muscle, aid in digestion regulation, absorb nutrients, help maintain a healthy immune system, and give you the necessary vitamins needed. It is another multi-level marketing product, which, in combination with the ingredients, explains its steep price point of $120 for a one month’s supply.
Shakeology comes in a variety of flavors with whey protein, pea protein and plant-based protein. They also have a vegan formula. The formulas consist of over 70 natural and exotic ingredients including high quality plant-based proteins, super fruit, antioxidants, and more, which makes it a top choice for many vegans. However, because of the blend of exotic ingredients, many people do not care for the taste. Additionally, as an attempt to sweeten the flavor, Shakeology uses fructose in several flavors – fructose has become very controversial, as studies have shown excess fructose can lead to obesity, heart disease, and other ailments. Just “Google” it and you’ll find a world of information.
There are a huge group of people out there who swear by Shakeology and drink it on a daily basis – however, if you are looking for something that is fructose free has great flavor and is relatively affordable, this may not be the best option for you!
