Top 8 Things to Know About Shakeology

Many customers and potential customers ask what Shakeology is actually supposed to do for them. While each person's body is unique and different, here are some short summaries of effects that anyone taking Shakeology on a regular basis may experience.

number1Antioxidants. Shakeology contains some of the most potent antioxidants: flavonoids and phytonutrients such as spinach, blue green algae, carrot powder, strawberry powder, and vitamins E and C. These help to prevent free radicals from oxidizing and destroying cells. The ingredients in our antioxidant blend such as pomegranate, acai berry, camu-camu, goji, and blueberry also have powerful antioxidant effects to support your immune system and help protect your body from normal inflammatory response.*

number 2Energy. Shakeology contains a range of B vitamins and trace minerals, like zinc and magnesium, from whole food sources that regulate metabolism and increase energy. Shakeology also contains maca root, an adaptogen herb known to promote endurance and stamina.*

number 3Digestion. The Shakeology non-dairy prebiotic and probiotic blend contains fiber and different enzymes like amylase, papain, cellulose, and lactase, which all support digestion. These ingredients aid in breaking down food molecules into smaller molecules that can be properly digested, so all of the nutrients can be absorbed into your system.*

number 4Mood. One scoop of Shakeology provides 100% of the daily recommended intake of vitamin B12. B12 is often linked with good mood maintenance; B vitamins are also essential for the production and proper functioning of neurotransmitters like dopamine, crucial to the experience of pleasure. Shakeology also contains cacao, which is very high in phenylethylamine (PEA). PEA acts as a neuromodulator to enhance one's mood.*

number 5Detoxification. Many of the ingredients in Shakeology (spirulina, chlorella, flaxseed, barley grass, spinach) contain powerful detoxification compounds such as chlorophyll and alpha-linolenic acid. These ingredients may help rid the body of environmental toxins such as smog, heavy metals, herbicides, cleaning products, and pesticides. They also aid in liver detoxification. Shakeology also includes kamut grass, an ingredient coined "nature's most powerful detoxifier." This grass has been known to cleanse the body and detoxify the cells to restore health and vitality.*

number 6Immunity. The antioxidants, bioflavanoids, and flavanoids in Shakeology work to support immunity. Some of these ingredients include ashwaganda, acerola cherry, rose hips, and goji berries. The goji berries in Shakeology are one of the richest sources of antioxidants; not only does goji berry promote eye, reproductive, and circulatory health, but it also supports your immune system and promotes longevity!*

number 7Satiety/cravings. The protein, chromium, and nutrient-dense calories from superfoods in Shakeology work to help decrease your appetite. Chromium is important because it helps maintain blood-sugar levels, which reduces sugar cravings and promotes fat metabolism. Plus, protein-rich meals are a great way to keep you feeling full, longer!*

number 8Complete nutrition: Each Shakeology ingredient plays an important role in feeding your body on a cellular level, but it is important to remember that the synergy of the 70+ ingredients working together is what truly fuels your body to keep you looking and feeling your best.*

So there you have it! That's a snapshot of all the wonderful things Shakeology does for your body. For more information or to order, please visit www.ShakeCoach.com.

What Pumpkin Seeds and Turkey Have in Common

What a great article on pumpkin seeds I found in a newsletter I get from "Get Waisted," written by Mark Wendt. I love putting "pepitas" (pumpkin seeds) on my salads and here is a really cool benefit from this plant based source of tryptophan (commonly associated with turkey meat):

Pumpkin seeds are one of the most nutritious snacks on the planet. They have to be. In order to grow into a huge pumpkin they have to be loaded with great stuff. While we could have a nice discussion about nutritional benefits of eating pumpkin seeds, I’m going to focus on just one.

pumpkin seeds

Pumpkin seeds have a very high tryptophan to protein ratio. As many of us already know, tryptophan is a precursor to the neurotransmitter, serotonin. In folks who are experiencing depression, keeping those neurotransmitters in the brain is a good thing. That’s what anti-depressants do. They act as uptake inhibitors, and prevent neurons from re-absorbing the stuff.

Vegetables are loaded with neurotransmitters. However, eating them may not be enough because they are not in a position to cross the blood-brain barrier. On the other hand, tryptophan can because it’s an amino acid. But for those of you thinking that you’re going to raise your levels by eating a turkey sandwich, guess again. While tryptophan levels from an animal source increase levels of the stuff in the body, it doesn’t make its way to the brain, where it’s needed. For various reasons tryptophan pills failed too. The only winners here where the plants.

So keep the “Happy” in Happy Halloween and eat your pumpkin seeds 🙂
