- What is it really?
- Is it an over-priced protein shake?
- What are these superfoods?
- Why does it help so many people?
- Is it really that good for you?
Most people are a little (or a lot) skeptical about this “shake” thing. I’ll be honest, so was I at first. In fact, for years I never tried Shakeology because I thought I knew what it was. I assumed the hundreds of dollars I was spending on supplements and superfood concoctions from different companies each month was superior to what might be in Shakeology. I blew off the testimonials I read from consistent Shakeology users because I was ignorantly convinced that it was another scam product with inflated statements.
WOW, have I been humbled.
This year happens to be Shakeology’s 10-Year anniversary so I decided to do something special that I can’t wait to share with you. I did 6 + months of intense research so you don’t have to. My background is in researching medical conditions, medications, therapies, supplements, nutritional theories etc. Through getting my Bachelor’s in nursing, I learned how to do high-quality research on important topics. I don’t just “google” things and use blog posts for my opinions. The PROBLEM is that many people actually do, do this and there are several inaccurate blog posts on the interweb claiming to have the “truth” about Shakeology, but EVERY ONE I’ve read is inaccurate. In this research project, I dug in to each ingredient and searched for clinical trials and scientific evidence that corresponds with those ingredients. In this report, I lay out my findings so you can see for yourself the potential power in the combination of ingredients within Shakeology’s formula.
You’ll learn about the 5 formulas in Shakeology, more about quality standards, clinical trials and research associated with the individual ingredients.
Did you know there’s actually FIVE supplemental formulas within each serving of this wellness formula? They include:
- Bioavailable Protein Blend
- Antioxidant & Superfruit Formula
- Phytonutrient & Supergreen Formula
- Adaptogen Herb & Stress Support Formula
- Digestive Support Formula
Amazing right?! I get SO excited about this stuff! Foundational health has never been so easy or convenient!
Let’s go deeper into science for a sec, shall we?!
I would like to show you the clinical trial that was done on Shakeology in 2014. The results are powerful.
After a thorough screening process, 50 individuals were asked to participate in a 90-day clinical trial. During the study, the individuals were required to drink Shakeology for breakfast and lunch for 90 days, without making any other diet or exercise modifications. (This is an important aspect because it isolated the effects of Shakeology). It was that simple.
Check out these incredible results:
- Reduction in blood sugar (hemoglobin A1C)- Participants reduced their blood sugar (HbA1c) by an average of 5% while some reduced their numbers by up to 19%.
- Reduction in cholesterol-The average total cholesterol reduction was 7% with the maximum reduction being 50%.
- Supports Healthy Weight Loss- Individuals lost an average of 9.3 pounds, with the highest weight loss coming in at 24 pounds.

GOSH, I LOVE THIS STUFF!!!!
While I haven’t been given the green light yet to share my research project with you and publish it for the public’s viewing pleasure… I did do a sneak peek video for you! I’ve gotten amazing feedback about this already! I hope you enjoy it! In this video I explain the 5 formulas, I talk about the difference in the whey protein that’s used, testing standards, value, price breakdown, why and how it’s actually SAVING most people money and incredibly affordable for what it contains, and how to get it for FREE! Ya…crazy!
Check out the video above and leave me a comment below to share what you learned! I’d love your feedback! Do you know someone who could benefit from something like this?
