6 Things to Know About the New Shakeology Formula
1. We’ve Improved the Vitamin and Mineral Composition (whey-based formulas only)
When new research from the Dietary Committee was released, it revealed that there are vitamins and minerals many people were short on as well as others that may not be beneficial if consumed in excess. According to the research, many people do not consume enough Vitamin B6, Vitamin D, and Vitamin C, whereas too much vitamin A, depending on the form, can be a bad thing. In addition to this information, the research showed that some populations may have different nutrient needs.
Vitamin and mineral changes for Shakeology:
When it comes to vitamins and minerals, quality, not just quantity matters. And when it came to improving the Shakeology formula, we took this into serious consideration. That’s why we replaced certain Folate, Vitamin K, and Vitamin B12 with forms that are easier for the human body to absorb and use.
3. We’ve Added Matcha
Matcha is the powdered green tea leaf that has potent phytonutrients. Along with other superfood-phytonutrients in Shakeology, matcha can help support health and vitality. The matcha we use in Shakeology comes from an USDA organic-certified supplier. Matcha has been enjoyed in Japan for centuries and it’s now featured in all flavors of Shakeology!
4. We’ve Added Chaga
Chaga is a woody mushroom, which along with other adapotgens in Shakeology, have been traditionally used to help the body adapt and respond to effects of stress. Our chaga is American grown from a supplier that is USDA organic certified.
5. We’ve Added Sacha Inchi in Vegan Shakeology
Our non-vegan flavors have always had sacha inchi, which is a superfood native to Peru and is also known as an Inca nut. We’re thrilled that sacha inchi is now a part of our protein blend across the full Shakeology product line, including our vegan flavors!
6. We removed Fructose and Agave
Previously, fructose was an ingredient in the whey-based Shakeology and agave was an ingredient in Vegan Shakeology. While striving for the highest quality ingredients, our formulators discovered that replacing fructose and agave with organic cane sugar resulted in a more well-rounded sweetness. Plus, our sugar source is now organic.
