The Shakeology protein powder is a healthy meal replacement alternative that is nutritionally dense and is jam-packed full of vital minerals and foods to kick your day off with a bang. Shakeology contains essential vitamins and minerals such as digestive enzymes, prebiotics, probiotics, adaptogens, fiber, antioxidants, vitamins, and crucial minerals to set you up for a healthy, happy morning.  

Shakeology Product Review 

Shakeology advertises that anyone who is suffering from lethargy or bouts of low energy, digestive issues, or weight issues should try this shake to see noticeable differences today. While there are certainly pros and cons to this shake, it may not be the right product for everyone. Keep reading now to learn if this is the shake for you.   

Nutritional Facts and Details  

Shakeology excels above its competitors with its carefully crafted list of ingredients. The protein powder contains zero artificial sweeteners, zero controversial ingredients, while also containing superfoods, super-proteins, super-fruits, super-greens, antioxidants, and more. And at an impressive 16 grams of protein per serving, this shake will keep you going all day long.  

Price 

Compared to other protein shakes in the market, Shakeology leans on the more expensive side coming in at $129.95 per bag or $4.33 per serving. While it is more expensive than most, Shakeology is a product crafted from quality ingredients and is a healthy, fast meal replacement option for those on the go.  

If you have enough money in your budget to allow for this product, this shake may be a good fit as it is healthy, quick, and easy.  

Taste  

The biggest issue with Shakeology seems to be its highly unpleasant texture and flavor. Some customers have compared the texture to drinking sand and complain it tastes similar to gasoline. Others have noted that the taste is noticeably artificial and chemically and that they can clearly taste that this shake has been concocted in a lab. Furthermore, the unpleasant taste is so strong that it’s nearly impossible to disguise with add-ons like you can with other protein shakes.  

While many protein shakes have a thick texture, Shakeology seems to have an abnormally gritty, unpleasant texture that turns people off. If you are sensitive to unpleasant tastes and textures, this product may not be for you.  

What People Are Saying  

Many customers are dissatisfied with the exorbitant price, saying that you can find many of the ingredients for much cheaper. Customers are also complaining that the bag given does not contain nearly as many servings as Shakeology advertises.  

The taste is also a big hurdle for many customers to overcome. While protein shakes are notorious for having bad textures and flavors, these shakes seem to lean on the more unpleasant side to the point where it’s negatively affecting customer experiences.  

Conclusion  

For a majority of consumers, this product may not be the right fit simply due to the high price. This product seems like it may only be a good fit for those with lots of extra money to spend on health and wellness. Additionally, the flavor and texture may put some customers off more than comparable shakes in the market. 

Still, Shakeology is a fast, convenient, and healthy meal replacement option since it’s so densely packed with essential nutrients and vitamins.
