What to avoid in a health shake/protein shake/meal replacement smoothie.

I really don’t like to bash other products but this is more to help educate you in what to look for and what to avoid in a health shake. Because when a product is cheaper there’s a reason. Companies make money off your purchase and they do cut corners to keep costs down and profits higher. Being mindful of the ingredients and how it’s processed will help you decide what product is the best for you.



So just going off of this label here are a few things I noticed:

Whey concentrate is not good. It’s the cheapest form of protein and it has most of the toxins in it vs whey isolate which is the clean more expensive part.
Most cheaper shakes use this concentrate to save money.

Any type of soy or soy lecithin can negatively impact your estrogen levels. Many soy products are are also genetically modified which makes it even worse.

Also note the large amount of ingredients you can’t pronounce or even know what it is.

Sucralose is fake sugar - Splenda. It was discovered when trying to create a pesticide. Hmm let’s eat pesticide. Yum!

Acesulfame is also an artificial sugar that has been linked to cancer.

Artificial colors and flavors

And the other thing that matters is how are the vitamins and minerals processed and where do they come from. Our body will not absorb them if they are not processed a certain way. And our bodies absorb much better from natural sources.

Bottom line you get what you pay for. It’s $50 for 30 servings but you aren’t getting superfoods, digestive enzymes, priobodics and preobodics, phytonutrients, adaptogens, etc like you do w shakeology. They do not even compare in quality or content.

Just make sure to do research to find something that will help you be healthy and make achieving your goals easier vs making it harder.

If you need a recommendation I have something I’ve used once a day for over 6 years. I swear by it! Just send me a message and I would be happy to share some information with you so you can decide for yourself. Our product also comes with a 30 day bottom of the bag guarantee. I don't know of any other company that offers this.
