What are Antioxidants?
The production of harmful molecules called free radicals causes oxidative stress to occur on the body. Free radicals are chemically active atoms or molecular fragments that have a positive or negative electrical charge due to an excess or deficient number of electrons. Because they have one or more unpaired electrons, free radicals are highly unstable. They grab or donate electrons, to and from your body’s own molecules, thereby damaging cells, proteins, and DNA (genetic material). The same oxidative process also causes oils to become rancid, peeled apples to turn brown, and iron to rust.
Antioxidants as you may have guessed, are substances that are capable of preventing or even reversing the damaging, but normal, effects of the physiological process of oxidation in animal tissue. Antioxidants are nutrients and enzymes that are believed to play a role in preventing the development of such chronic diseases as cancer, heart disease, stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, Rheumatoid arthritis, and cataracts.

Just in case you didn’t remember, the Super Protein blend consisted of these ingredients:
Whey, Sacha Inchi, Chia, Flax, Quinoa, Amaranth, Brown Rice, Peas.

Shakeology: Superfood in a Glass – Is this stuff for real?
Let me say, when I first started my journey to getting fit, I was VERY skeptical about Shakeology, or any meal replacement shake. We’ve all seen the vast amount of meal replacement supplements out there on the market, Body by this, and the pink drinks that make outlandish claims about helping us to lose weight and get in shape. Also, coupled with the $120 price tag for a one month supply of Shakeology – FORGET ABOUT IT!!! I could find protein supplements and meal replacements for a lot cheaper, and still get results, and I did. So you’re reading this and thinking “Okay tell me again why I need Shakeology?” Let me spend a little time explaining why.
