Drug Test Concerns while on Shakeology
shakeology drug test
1/2/11 10:15 AM
I have a customer of mine who is in a government job and is worried about taking the drug test while drinking Shakeology. There was an email that went out a few months ago from Beachbody stating some concerns with some of the ingredients in Shakeology. I can't find anything on the message boards related to this question. Wondering if any others have experienced problems with the Drug Tests and/or if there is any more information regarding questionable ingredients that show up as false/positives.
Thanks
Anna

This was the letter from Beachbody regarding this... unless you are a professional athlete you have nothing to worry about...


"Shakeology® is nature in a bag. Unfortunately, technology isn't always able to see the forest for the trees–or in this case, the roots from the trees.

Recently, the World Anti-Doping Association (WADA) and the National Football League (NFL) released a new list of nationally banned substances. And because current drug screening technologies are unable to differentiate between natural, healthy substances and synthetic banned substances, the list now encompasses a group of all-natural phyto-chemical compounds known as ecdysteroids, which are found in various plants around the globe. There are 150 different kinds of ecdysteroids, and ecdysterone is one of them.

THE FACTS
Ecdysterone can be found in several plants, including the immune-boosting herb Suma Root, sometimes referred to as "Brazilian Ginseng." In addition to ecdysterone, the powerful Suma Root contains over 19 different natural and bio-active compounds, including amino acids, electrolytes, trace minerals, iron, magnesium, zinc, vitamins A, B1, B2, E, K, and pantothenic acid. In other words, it's a miracle root.

Suma Root is one of the 70 ingredients found in Shakeology.

The root of the issue: Since the ecdysterone found in Suma Root can be erroneously detected as a banned synthetic substance, Beachbody® is advising athletes and anyone subject to banned substances testing to consult their physician and athletic organization before consuming Shakeology.

THE BOTTOM LINE
Beachbody firmly stands behind every globally researched and hand-picked ingredient in Shakeology. And while Shakeology does NOT contain any stimulants, or artificial or controlled substances, it does contain Suma Root (Pfaffia paniculata)—an herb shown to significantly increase protein synthesis in muscle as well as help lower cholesterol and balance blood sugar levels. Many additional benefits of Suma Root are well-documented and supported by scientific research.

Thank you for this post. I'm researching what I can about this warning on the bag because of how heavily involved I am with the military (being a spouse) and I need to make sure that if I recommend this product to anyone active duty they don't have to worry about 'popping' on a drug test.

As a pilot for a major airline, I have been drug tested by the FAA while using Shakeology, and did not have any problems, FWIW.

I've been very interested in finding answers to this also. ...Specifically, how much Suma Root is in one serving. I posed the question to the experts on the Shakeology FB page. I pasted below what I received today. Now, I suppose the question becomes, how much Ecdysterone is in 50mg of Suma Root, and how much in our body chemistry would flag a test!

There's a disclaimer on the back/bottom of the bag about Suma Root and its phytonutrient, ecdysterone. How much exactly of this substance is contained in one serving. I'd like to do more research about it as I decide whether or not my teenage children should consume Shakeology. I would hate to "set them up" for a failed drug test if they were ever compete in sports. Any guidance would be helpful! I've also had many customers asking for the same information.
Thanks!
Kirsten Goetz, Independent Team Beachbody Coach

Been on Shakeology for 2 weeks now, and just took the whiz quiz today.

I wrote "none" on the meds part. I'll let you know if I'm kicked out.

Even more so now, with Body Beast coming out, I'm assuming that having the "Beast" package and taking the "Super Suma" capsules poses even more of a threat to this problem? Since I am taking it, I would also like to know how long Suma root stays in your system.

I am Active duty Army, have been on Shakeology since June and have Zero issues. There are numerous Active Duty Coaches around me as well on Post and none of us would risk our careers over anything if it was suspect. You can trust Shakeology.
