Shakeology & What it has done for me…

I wanted to do a little post on Shakeology as it’s brand new over here in the UK and I wanted to share my story of Shakeology and what it has done for me.

I was first introduced to Shakeology over 4 years ago when I started doing the Insanity program. I knew I couldn’t get it here in the UK, so luckily when I was on holiday in Florida, I was able to get some shipped to my address there. I had heard so many great things about it and I wanted to try it for myself.

First of all, I Youtubed and researched it like crazy because if you know me, I’m a stickler for HEALTH and I will not put inferior supplements into my body just because they’re cheap.. they’re cheap for a reason, right?… So I wondered what made Shakeology so great and why the price tag?..

What I found… blew my mind.. 😮

This is not like any other shake I have come across, it is a combination of ingredients and nutrients, including proteins, vitamins & minerals, superfoods with antioxidant properties, adaptogenic herbs and botanicals, fiber, pre and pro-biotics, and digestive enzymes. These incredible whole food ingredients sourced from around the world provide a wealth of superfood nutrition.

So in a nutshell, what does that mean?.. In one serving you are giving your body all the nutrients it needs and craves to keep your body running at an optimum level! I was IN, I needed to try this for myself and see what it could do for me!

Over the last 4 years I have been using Shakeology whenever I can get my hands on it and it has helped me in so many ways!.. I have amazing hair, skin and nails, I don’t get that afternoon slump, it satisfies my sweet tooth (I am the chocolate monster!) but most importantly to me is that I’m regular! Yes, I’m talking poo!.. Before Shakeology, I would sometimes go 6 days without going for a no. 2!! I would take laxatives just to be able to move my bowels and honest to god, since taking Shakeology, I go everyday, sometimes twice a day… and that is HUGE for me! 💩

I’ve read testimonies of people who use it daily and come of their cholesterol medication and their blood pressure medication (I’m not saying do that… but do your own research) and I get really excited because this is what it’s all about! I don’t want another shake that promotes weight loss, I want something that is going to keep me super healthy from the inside while I do my workouts and take care of the outside and Shakeology can do that for me! The weight loss is just a by product of that.

I also give my 11 year old son 1/2 a scoop with 1/2 a banana, almond milk & ice before school and I can say we have hardly ever been sick, or if we do get a sniffle, its just, that a sniffle, not a full blown cold. I believe Shakeology plays a HUGE part in that.

So, I’ll be an advocate for the rest of my life because I see the value in it and health to me doesn’t have a price tag, it’s priceless… ❤️
