Shakeology will no longer contain acai, effective July 10th, 2015 due to new risks that have been discovered with consumption of the berry. The particular berry Beachbody has used up until now was NOT found to have any issues, but it was removed as an ingredient nonetheless. Other ingredients have been increased so that Shakeology contains the same dense nutrition as before.
Açai berries (pronounced: ah-sigh-EE)! They’ve been devoured by the Amazonian people for centuries, but it wasn’t until recently when the rest of the world unearthed their cherished secret superfood. Of course, we put it in Shakeology®, and boy are we glad we did. Because this bite-sized fruit delivers quite a healthy punch.
Top 5 reasons why açai berries are good for you:
1. Loaded with fiber.
Fiber aids in digestion, which helps keep our insides moving.
2. Chock-full of amino acids.
Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. Protein is fuel. You need it to live.
3. Overflowing with antioxidants.
Antioxidants help your body battle free radicals, which destroy healthy cells. And these feisty fruits have between 15 to 30 times more antioxidants than grapes.
4. Swimming with omega-3 fatty acids.
This healthy fat has been known to help make your insides healthy.
5. Packed with plant sterols.
This naturally occurring substance helps promote circulation and oxygenation of the blood.
And the #1 reason Shakeology is good for you: Because it contains the superfood açai berries, as well as more than 70 other super-nutritious ingredients. Making Shakeology the most nutrient-dense and healthy shake on the planet.
