Shakeology is a meal replacement shake that is being popular with health coaches and social media influencers. But the company doesn’t state whether it’s safe for pregnant or breastfeeding women, and some ingredients in Shakeology have been linked to miscarriage.
Shakeology contains 70+ super foods and nutrients with the highest nutrient density of any shake mix on the market. It’s also a great source of protein, vitamins and minerals, and is loaded with digestive enzymes and probiotics to support regularity and digestive health.
It’s a good choice for those who are on a calorie-restricted diet, or need to consume certain nutrients at specific times. The nutrition facts for a single serving of Shakeology range from 140-160 calories, 17 grams of protein and 7 grams of sugar.
The nutrient density of Shakeology is what makes it a meal replacement, but that’s not a big deal as long as you keep the number of calories in check. The calories in a shake are also influenced by what it is mixed with (water, soy, rice, hemp, almond or oat beverage or fruit juice) and how much you add to it.
There are a lot of positive reviews online for the chocolate plant-based vegan shake. It does taste delicious and is chock full of vitamins, minerals, and protein.
While many people claim that it does help them lose weight, the science is not yet there to prove that. If you’re trying to shed pounds, a better choice is to focus on other ways to boost your metabolism, such as a healthy lifestyle and exercise.
