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 – Moringa
Moringa is a flowering plant that is represented by 13 species in tropical and sub-tropical climates world wide. This plant ranges in size from shrubs to large trees. Cultivation in many countries is being promoted as a means to combat poverty and malnutrition. In Senegal is is called “The Miracle Tree” because it has literally meant the difference between life and death in that country’s battle for starvation, and malnutrition.
Moringa leaf is a rich source of antioxidants, it is high in protein, vitamins A,B, and C, as well as minerals. It contains all 8
essential amino acids. On a weight-by-weight comparison, Moringa contain twice the protein of yogurt, 4 times the calcium of milk, 3 times the Vitamin C of an orange, 3 times the iron of spinach, 3-4 times the Vitamin A as carrots, and 3 times potassium as a banana.
The seeds contain 30 to 40 % oleic acid, and are also high in protein. It is a great supplement for nursing mothers to help increase their mil supply, as well as passing the other health benefits on to their babies.
Shakeology Ingredients – Spirulina
When I tell you what Spirulina is, it may not sound very appetizing. Spirulina is a a cyanobacteria, which used to be called blue-green algae, or pond scum YUCK!!!. However, Spirulina is over 57% protein by weight it contains all 8 essential amino acids, it has up to 25 times (that’s right 25) the vitamin A of carrots. It is high in B Vitamins and over 100 nutrients.
The cell walls of this scum is fully digestible and helps strengthen body tissues. Spirulina helps detoxify the liver and kidneys. It enriches the blood and cleanses the arteries. It also enhances the intestinal flora to aid in digestion while inhibiting the growth of harmful bacteria, and fungi, as well as various forms of yeast. The blue phyto pigment in Spirulina even helps inhibit some forms of cancer.
Shakeology Ingredients – Spinach
Spinach has a high nutritional value and is extremely rich in antioxidants, especially when fresh, steamed, or quickly boiled. It is a rich source of vitamin A (and especially high in lutein), vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin K, magnesium, manganese, folate, betaine, iron, vitamin B2, calcium, potassium, vitamin B6, folic acid, copper, protein, phosphorus, zinc, niacin, selenium and omega-3 fatty acids. Recently, opioid peptides called rubiscolins have also been found in spinach.
Polyglutamyl folate (vitamin B9 or folic acid) is a vital constituent of cells, and spinach is a good source of folic acid.
Shakeology Ingredients – Barley Grass, Kamut Grass, Oat Grass
WAIT ONE DAMN MINUTE!!! I thought Barley and wheat contain GLUTEN, but Beachbody says Shakeology is gluten free…What gives???
The wheat grass, kamut grass, barley grass and oat grass used in Shakeology are gathered just as they sprouted, BEFORE the wheat matures, and before the development of any wheat protein (gluten). While it’s true that wheat and barley grains contain gluten, the freshly sprouted young grasses used in Shakeology are certified gluten free. Shakeology is tested for gluten by an independent lab in order to receive the “Gluten Free” certification.
These grasses are a major source of phyto nutrients, they help to alkalinize the body, and detoxify it, in fact, kamut grass, is called “nature’s most powerful detoxifier.” This grass has been known to cleanse the body and detoxify the cells to restore health and vitality.
In an experiment at George Washington University, researchers exposed leukemic cancer cells to dehydrated barley grass extract. The extract killed virtually all of them. to further test these effects, the researchers then subjected brain cancer cells to the extract. It eradicated 30 to 50 percent of these cells. In a third trial, the extract inhibited the growth of three types of prostate cancer cells by 90 to 100 percent.
Shakeology has helped many reach their fitness goals and maintain a healthy lifestyle. If you’re not a big veggie eater, then this is PERFECT for you. I personally use it everyday, my favorite is the Chocolate. It tastes like a thick dark chocolate smoothie. The Shakeology Ingredients alone should be enough to get you to try it, but to make it easy on you, Beachbody has a 30 Day Bottom of the Bag Guarantee. Try it for 30 days, and if you hate it, return just the empty bag for a refund. I also recommend the Autoship Plan, or Home Direct (HD). Shakeology HD will save you about $15 on shipping, since Beachbody waives the shipping on all HD orders. With HD shipping you also get free workout videos and a free shaker cup on your second month’s order. Even if you only get it for one month, I would still recommend getting HD. If you don’t like Shakeology, all you have to do is email or call Beachbody, and cancel, but you have just saved some money.
