Shakeology Ingredients – Super Green Phytonutrient Blend

The more I learn about the ingredients in Shakeology, the more excited I get!  NOTHING comes close to this stuff!  In this post I will discuss Shakeology Ingredients – Super Green Phytonutrient Blend.  The ingredients of this major part of the Healthiest Meal of the Day include:  Moringa, Chlorella, Spirulina, Spinach, Barley Grass, Kamut Grass, Wheat Grass, and Oat Grass.  Their major role is to help alkalinize the body and to promote detoxification of the liver, kidneys and blood to restore health and vitality.  Let’s look at these ingredients

Shakeology Ingredients – Super Fruit/Antioxidant Blend

Shakeology Ingredients – Super Fruit/Antioxidant Blend provides Antioxidant Support and Promotes a Healthy Heart, and Optimal Blood Pressure.

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.

Shakeology Ingredients – Super Protein Blend

In my previous post Shakeology Ingredients I discussed, in summary, all the healthy things that go into Shakeology to make it the Healthiest Meal of the Day.  Let’s go a little deeper and look at each group of ingredients.  In this installment let’s look at Shakeology Ingredients – Super Protein Blend.  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.

The main purpose of this Super Protein Blend is that it helps build lean muscle, improves skin and hair, supports mental clarity, and reduces cravings.  Where do these proteins come from and how are they processed in the best possible manner to ensure that they are the most bio-available, or how well the body can use them.

Shakeology Review: Superfood in a Glass – Is This Stuff For Real?

Shakeology: Superfood in a Glass – Is this stuff for real?Shakeology

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.

My Fitness Journey

My Fitness Journey

In fitness, as in life, we gain more, not from having reached the destination, but from the journey to get there.  If you’ve read the “About Me” Section of this blog, you’ve read about parts of my journey.  I let myself go over the years, but it wasn’t just laziness on my part, it was also a lack of understanding of my own body.  To give you a little history of my weight problem, lets back up to the days before P90X and Beachbody.  I used to workout regularly, but my nutrition sucked, so that soon after I would experience some progress in getting back in shape, I would soon hit a plateau and then get discouraged, and soon quit trying.  The weight would go back up and with some extra pounds.  The weight slowly over time creeped higher and higher, I would come home from work in the afternoons and just sit on the couch from doing no physical activity.  I would catch myself dozing off at traffic lights, it was really getting bad.

After 4 rounds of P90X, I decided to try a round of Insanity.  I figured that after bringing it for four rounds of the X that Insanity would be a piece of cake…OH MY GOD!!!  I could not have been more wrong.  This program is called Insanity for damn good reason.  This is THE most intense cardio circuit training I have ever experienced.  The warm up is more intense than some workouts.  You will definitely get your money’s worth with this program.

P90X2 Review

P90X2 ReviewP90X2 Review

I loved P90X, it was the program I had the most success with, but after 4 rounds, I was ready for some variety.  I did a round of Insanity, but I’m not a pure cardio kind of guy.  I really like the strength building aspects of resistance training.  Now along comes P90X2.  THIS is what I’ve been waiting for!  Tony Horton and the kids have reTommy Doran and Tony Hortonturned with an all new workout X-style.  Tony’s a great guy.  I got the opportunity to meet him in Las Vegas in June of 2012.  When I showed him my before-and-after shots and told him that he and P90X had helped me to lose 80 pounds, not only did he congratulate me, but he yelled it out to a ballroom full of other Beachbody Coaches.  What a guy.
