Now that Tropical Strawberry Shakeology has been released, you may be wondering if the only thing different is the flavor. Besides being a delicious new flavor, it is also vegan and contains four new superfoods. One of the challenges for the creators of the shake was to make it vegan without the grittiness commonly found in other vegan protein shakes. The way they achieved this was by blending ultra-fine bio-fermented, raw, sprouted brown rice protein with sachi inchi, quinoa, chia, flax, amaranth, and spirulina.
So, what is the big deal about raw sprouted and bio-fermented brown rice? When a seed sprouts, its vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, essential fatty acids, and antioxidants are increased. The bio-fermenting breaks down the rice grain and releases enzymes to help make it easier for your body to absorb the nutrients. Just like the chocolate and greenberry flavors, all key nutrients are derived from 100% whole foods. Whole foods are unprocessed and unrefined.
Four New SuperFoods
The most exciting part about Tropical Strawberry Shakeology are the four new superfood additions. They include:
- Coconut Flower Nectar - A sweet nectar, low on the glycemic index and full of fiber, amino acids, vitamins and minerals.
- Lou Han Guo Fruit - Used in Asia for centuries for immune and respirator support.
- Himalayan Salt - Unprocessed and contains over 70 trace minerals from the earth.
- Konjac Root - Contains soluble fiber which expands in your stomach to help you feel full longer.
I often recommend new users use Shakeology for 30-days and take advantage of the Bottom-of-the-Bag Guarantee offered by Team Beachbody. Essentially, you can use an entire 30-day supply and receive a full refund (less shipping & handling) even if the bag is empty. That is an amazing guarantee in my opinion.
