Shakeology vs. Isagenix
So today we are going to take a brief look at the Healthiest Meal of the Day, Shakeology, versus the Isagenix meal replacement shake.
Isagenix was founded by John Anderson and Jim and Kathy Coover. The creation of the Isagenix meal replacement shake was in an effort to combat the obesity issue presently plaguing the United States. Or as Team Beachbody puts it “ending the trend of obesity”.
The Isagenix meal replacement shake comes in two flavors; chocolate and vanilla. According to my research, Isagenix provides 23 grams of protein per serving and contains many naturally occurring ingredients. Isagenix contains 1100% more fat than Shakeology (6 grams of fat compared to less than half a gram in Shakeology). Additionally, Isagenix contains more cholesterol, sodium, and overall calories per serving. Shakeology contains 150 calories per serving compared to 240 calories per serving. Isagenix also lacks the potency of the vitamins and minerals contained within Shakeology; for example Isagenix only has 40% of the daily recommended allowance of Vitamin C versus 300% in Shakeology. Isagenix lacks vitamins such as B1, B2, and B3; all contained within Shakeology. Research actually shows that you would have to consume 2 to 4 Isagneix shakes to get the same concerntraion of vitamins and minerals found in just 1 serving of Shakeology.
Now let’s talk a bit about the Isagenix Isalean Shake price. Each canister costs $ 39.00 and contains a 14 day supply therefore for one month you will need approximately two canisters for a total cost $78.00 plus shipping. From what I have found Isagenix does offer a 30 day money back guarantee; however, I cannot find any information indicating that they offer a bottom of the bag money back guarantee like Shakeology does!
Now Shakeology on the other hand…
Shakeology contains 70 of the healthiest and most nutritious foods from across the globe; and they really mean from across the globe! Darin Olien, teamed up with Beachbody to scour the ends of the earth in search of the best ingredients. I am not quite sure I have ever seen a group of people so dedicated to bringing “the best stuff on earth” to our door step!
Shakeology falls at a 24 on the Glycemic Index Scale which is really good news! Foods that are high on the Glycemic Index Scale such as pizza, bagels, ice cream, corn syrup, and mashed potatoes rapidly increase blood sugar and insulin levels. Research indicates that these are contributors to weight gain, diabetes, coronary artery disease, and the good old “energy crash” that many of us experience just after our lunch hour. However, foods that are low on the Glycemic Index Scale such as fruits, vegetables, nuts, beans, and of course Shakeology provide a slow sustained release of energy that allows us to avoid the “energy crashing” effect.
So what exactly is in Shakeology that helps do all these wonderful things? Well Shakeology contains protein and essential amino acids that help us build muscle while also reducing food cravings. The prebiotics and digestive enzymes assist us in improving digestion, regularity, and nutrient absorption. The antioxidants and phytonutrients help counteract “free radical damage” that is often associated with degenerative diseases. And last but not least, Shakeology contains our daily dose of vitamins and minerals which provides our body’s with everything that we need to function at our own personal optimal health levels.
So what about price? A one month supply of Shakeology costs $119.95 for Chocolate or Greenberry flavors or $129.95 for Tropical Strawberry or Chocolate vegan. And you can save on monthly shipping costs by choosing the Home Direct option. And best of all Shakeology offers a BOTTOM of the BAG money back GUARENTEE! That means you can use the ENTIRE bag and if you are not completely satisfied you can return the empty bag for a full refund NO QUESTIONS ASKED!
So you do the math which are you willing to try; Shakeology or Isagenix?
