Prebiotics are included for digestive support and finally, digestive enzymes which aids the body in the absorption of nutrients. Shakeology can help you lose weight, curb your cravings, and keep you regular.

With busy lifestyles it is not always easy to get in the recommended daily fruits and vegetables. Fast food and convince foods not only lack the fruit and vegetables needed in our daily diets, they are also full of salt, sugar, added fats, and fillers. For around $4 a day you can replace one of the “convience” food and have a Shakeology which is not only convient but good for your body.

How easy is Shakeology to make? You simply take 8 oz of water – a mixture of fat free milk and water to equal 8 ounces – and one scoop of Shakeology and blend. You can also add fresh fruit to any Shakeology. Frozen fruit will give the Shakeology the texture and taste an ice cream shake. If you are on the go or traveling there are handy single serving packs. Use them along with a shaker cup and you have Shakeology on the go. Shakeology comes in two delicious flavors, chocolate and greenberry. Both flavors provide you with the same minerals and nutrients.

The ingredients used in Shakeology do not come from some science lab. They use only whole food sources for Shakeology. Meaning the ingredients are the finest available. The amount of nutrients these whole foods provide in one Shakeology are equal to 7 trips to the salad bar. And this would be a salad bar with fresh vegetables, fruits, beans, and legumes. No bacon bits at the Shakeology salad bar.

The Shakeology cleanse is very simple to follow. You simple have 3 Shakeologies a day, along with fruit, and a big salad of vegetables with four ounces of protein for dinner. If you are not a meat eater you can sbustitute meat for beans, just be sure to add enough beans. The only other food requirement is to have two tbs of a healthy oil like olive oil with your salad dressing. It’s essential that you have your healthy fats everyday, even when you are a cleanse.
