Ingredients is what it all boils down to. Shakeology contains over 70+ high quality ingredients. Most protein powders (which for some reason people compare to Shakeology and shouldn't be) only contain the basic protein blends.

Here's an idea of what's in Shakeology, and what it does for you.

Shakeology contains the following nutrient groups and ingredients. Each nutrient group helps your body on a variety of levels. Here's the breakdown!
How Does Shakeology Work?

Protein and Amino Acids: Whey, Pea, Brown Rice, Chia, Quinoa, Amaranth, Flax, Sacha Inchi.

What these do in your body: Help build lean muscles, improve skin and hair, support optimal brain function, improve mood, and reduce cravings.

Antioxidants and Super-Fruits: Cacao, Coconut Flower Nectar, Acerola Cherry, Pomegranate, Camu-Camu, Bilberry, Goji Berry, Blueberry, Acai, Green Tea, Rose Hips, Cinnamon, Luo Han Guo.

What these do in your body: Help reduce oxidative damage from free radicals, promote heart health and ideal blood pressure, support joint health, and keep your brain healthy.

Phytonutrients and Super-Greens: Moringa, Spirulina, Chlorella, Spinach, Barley Grass, Kamut Grass, Oat Grass, Wheat Grass.

What these do in your body: Help alkalize the body and promote detoxification of the liver, kidneys, and blood to restore health and vitality.

Adaptogen Herbs: Maca, Astragulus, Ashwagandha, Maitake Mushroom, Cordyceps, Reishi Mushroom, Schisandra, Ginkgo, Tulsi (Holy Basil).

What these do in your body: Help protect the body from stress, support the immune system, and balance the endocrine system.

Prebiotics and Probiotics: Yacon Root, Lactobacillus Sporogenes (Bacillus Coagulans).

What these do in your body: Help promote regularity, support a balanced microflora environment in the intestinal tract, and improve digestion.

Digestive Enzymes: Amylase, Papain, Cellulase, Lactase, Lipase, Protease, Bromelain.

What these do in your body: Help the body break down foods and increase absorption of nutrients.

I'm not a basher of other products, but all I will say is you get what you pay for. If you have any other questions, feel free to reach out.

I checked out Body By Vi. One of the things that bothered me is that it is toted as Gluten free, but when you read the ingredients... It truly is not! It is made in a factory that also processes wheat products. That is cross contamination and for a celiac like me, that is bad news. One time it might be fine and then next mix might make me horribly sick!

I have a challenge with the whole thought that they say one thing when it is clearly not true. Beachbody does not claim anything about being gluten free, but again as someone who does their homework I found that they truly are. I am able to drink these shakes without worry of getting sick from them. Then as the poster before me posted all the great ingredients, lacking wheat! It is also half the price of Body by Vi. Even with your workout program it is still quite a bit less than just the Vi shakes. I actually looked into all the different options, and I found this one to be the best one for me.

I would highly recommend that you check it out. I loved the healthy diet, plus the exercise, plus the accountability. It was a full program for health and fitness for me. That really got me excited!

Love and Peace Sallyjane

Hi SallyJane,

I am trying to send you a private message, but it says your name is not found and I typed it in Sallyjanecoach. Weird. I also requested you as a friend.

Anyway, about the gluten free stuff, it does say on Shakeology (at least on the Vegan) that it is produced in the same facility/area as sot, gluten, dairy, etc. I am nervous about that. I am not a celiac, but am looking into something that says stay away from 7 things for 3 weeks and then slowly add them back in. They are soy, dairy, corn, eggs, sugar and sugar substitutes, and gluten. I am worried about Shakeology with that. What do you (or anyone else think)? Help! Thank you.

Amy
