You know about the awesomeness of Shakeology® – the ultra-premium health shake that Carl Daikeler’s wife helped formulate when she saw that her husband couldn’t eat a vegetable unless it was deep fried.
Shakeology® was recently tested and measured for its 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 Shakeology’s rating of 24 on the Glycemic Index is so impressive. It is 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! The Shakeology low GI score means it’s also okay for diabetics.
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 the price, which is about $3.50 or less a serving.
