Wondering what all this talk of Shakeology is about?

I have been talking about my new Beach Body venture and Shakeology on Facebook, but it is because I BELIEVE in the message, to help people achieve their goals, and lead healthy, fulfilling lives.
One of the Beach Body products I use and believe in is Shakeology. To put it simply, this is the most delicious shake I’ve ever had. It comes in two flavors: chocolate and greenberry. To be honest, I haven’t thought about trying greenberry, because I love the chocolate so much.  Shakeology is so much more than desert in a cup.
Shakeology is made of 70 natural ingredients found all over the world. Shakeology includes whey protein isolate, an easily absorbable source of high-quality protein that's ideal for building and maintaining lean muscle mass. It also helps keep your blood sugar steady, reducing hunger and junk food cravings. Essential amino acids, found in protein, help the body repair muscle tissue and heal wounds; support the brain to promote calmness and alertness; and reduce hunger pangs. The whey protein in Shakeology provides a highly bioavailable source of essential amino acids.
Shakeology’s benefits include:
·         23 Vitamins and Minerals
·         Get a wide range of essential nutrients
·         Protein and Essential Amino Acids
·         Help build and repair muscles
·         Reduce hunger and food cravings
·         Help keep blood sugar steady
·         Support brain function to help promote alert thinking and reduce anxiety
·         Promote healthy skin, hair, and nails
·         Prebiotics and Digestive Enzymes
·         Aid digestion
·         Help boost the immune system
·         Increase absorption of nutrients
·         Antioxidants and Phytonutrients
·         Get rid of harmful free radicals
·         Help decrease inflammation
·         Help boost your immune system
·         Potentially decrease the risk of degenerative diseases
·         May even increase longevity
Most of us don't get the complete range of essential vitamins and minerals in our daily diets. Some important vitamins, such as vitamin C and the B vitamins are water-soluble, meaning they're flushed out of your body after a short time and need to be replenished regularly. Others, like vitamin E, can be difficult to get enough of in food. Shakeology provides all these nutrients in an easy-to-take, easily absorbable form, so you never have to worry about dietary deficiencies and you’re sure to get your necessary vitamins every day. My favorite part of Shakeology—I lost three pounds in the first week I used it!
What does it cost? There are two options. If someone would like to buy Shakeology monthly retail, the cost would be $4 a day. This isn’t bad if you're going to replace it with your morning Dunkin Donuts/Starbucks/fast food breakfast stops. In fact, this is a fantastic opportunity to jump start your health! The other option would be to join the Beach Body team (message me for details and assistance!) and pay just $3 a day, or make a profit from selling it yourself and helping others get their fitness on the right track.

If you like what you have heard but are still not sure, please remember that Shakeology has a bottom of the bag guarentee!  That's right--you can get all the benefits of Shakeology for 30 days.  If you are not 100% thrilled with the results, you can send back an EMPTY bag and get you money back.  Don't forget to order Shakeology on automatic delivery!  You will always get free shipping and the first two months you will get some awesome gifts--think FREE workouts....
