Shakeology® Certified Low Glycemic

You know about the awesomeness of Shakeology® – the ultra-premium health shake which my wife helped formulate when she saw that her husband couldn't eat a vegetable unless it was deep fried.

Now, in addition to enjoying it daily, we all get to brag about its most excellent score on the Glycemic Index Scale!

Shakeology® was recently tested and measured for it Glycemic Index (GI) and received the amazing score of 24 by Glycemic Index Laboratories.GI is a way to measure how carbohydrates react in your blood. When you eat carbs, your blood sugar level rises anywhere from a little to a lot. The GI uses a scale of 1 to 100, with higher numbers given to foods that cause the most rapid rise in blood sugar. These foods give a quick energy boost, often followed by a crash as your blood sugar drops rapidly, leaving you feeling sluggish, tired and even irritated.

The body needs carbs for fuel, but you need to feed it the right kind of carbs - ideally, foods found with a low rating on the Glycemic Index. Included on this list are whole grains, nuts, fruits, vegetables and, now confirmed... Shakeology.

Foods with a GI score of 55 or less are considered low on the Glycemic Index.

That’s why our rating of 24 on the Glycemic Index is so impressive. We are considered very low on the Index - lower, in fact than most fruits, some vegetables and virtually every processed food ever made. It’s even lower on the GI than an apple!

I get questions all the time about the sugar content in Shakeology – especially the fructose. Don’t confuse this with high-fructose corn syrup, which is a sugar substitute used in many processed foods and soft drinks. Fructose is a natural sugar found in fruits and some vegetables and is very low on the GI. We source natural non-GMO fructose to give Shakeology its great taste and also make its nutrition more bio-available (don't be impressed, I learned that word from my wife).

Did I mention that Shakeology low GI score means it’s also okay for diabetics? Well, it is! We hear from customers all the time who use Shakeology as part of their balanced diet to help maintain healthy blood sugar levels.

There are a lot of impressive numbers associated with this revolutionary product. 140 (the number of calories per serving). 70 (the number of healthy ingredients). And 24! (No, not the Jack Bauer 24.)

Shakeology is just $4 bucks a glass (a lot less if you are a coach), where can you find any meal this good tasting and this good for you, for anything amount less? Shakeology is so good, that I often find myself jonesing for it, every single day!

I've been using Shakeology for 3 months now, and just started a diabetic customer on it. I've been very excited to see her benefits! It's helped me tramendously!
