Shakeology® is now clinically shown to deliver results!*

For years our Shakeology customers have been saying that this Daily Dose of Dense Nutrition has drastically changed their lives. And while almost everyone who drinks Shakeology on a regular basis has lost weight, many have lowered their cholesterol, while others were able to reduce their blood sugar levels and speak to their doctor about getting off prescription medications. Plus, most every Shakeology customer we’ve heard from has commented on how this superfood shake has helped curb their cravings for junk food as well as helped improve their digestion.


We’ve heard time and time again from those who’ve submitted their Success Stories to the Beachbody Challenge® that it was Shakeology that made all the difference in their transformation. It didn’t matter how much they worked out, if their diet wasn’t right they couldn’t shed all the pounds they set out to lose. But once they started replacing meals with Shakeology, everything changed for the better.

Shakeology results were real.
To once and for all find out if what our customers were saying was based on anything more than their personal opinions, we conducted an independent clinical study that sought the answer to the one question everyone keeps asking: “How effective is Shakeology?”

Numbers don’t lie.
This study was administered by an independent clinical research organization for natural health products. After a rigorous selection process, 50 individuals were chosen to participate in a 90-day clinical study and their results blew everyone away—including the clinic administering the trial.

Details on the study.
All 50 participants were required to drink Shakeology for breakfast and lunch for 90 days, without making any other diet or exercise modifications. Participation in the trial was monitored with a proprietary app that tracked their compliance every single day. This was a very valuable study because it isolated the effects of Shakeology, which is something that had never been done before!

Shedding pounds.
Turns out, when participants drank Shakeology for breakfast they had a significant reduction in the desire to eat lunch. Over the course of 90 days participants lost an average of 9.3 pounds, with the highest weight loss coming in at 24 pounds. WOW—losing that much weight in 90 days is quite impressive!

Another interesting fact about the results is that participants continued to lose weight throughout the entire study. This shows that the continuous use of Shakeology resulted in the healthy type of weight loss—slow and steady. And those are the kind of results that are sustainable for the long haul.

Cholesterol plummeted.
In addition to lowering the digits on the scale, another very important number that shrunk was participants’ cholesterol. The average total cholesterol reduction was 7% with the maximum reduction being 50%.

Lowered blood sugar.
The study also monitored participants’ blood sugar levels. And rather than testing just a single day’s blood sugar (which can vary based on what you ate that day or even the day before) the study evaluated the average blood sugar for each day over the 3-month period (also known as HbA1c). Turns out, participants reduced their blood sugar (HbA1c) by an average of 5% while some reduced their numbers by up to 19%. And keeping your blood sugar levels steady is important in helping reduce the risk of diabetes.

Shakeology saves the day!
Thanks to this study, there’s now proof that Shakeology really works. And that all the testimonials shared by Shakeology drinkers over the years about how it changed their lives wasn’t just a random thing that only they experienced. This stuff works. And it works really well.

So the bottom line is: Shakeology is now clinically proven to help you:*
• Lose weight
• Lower cholesterol
• Reduce blood sugar levels (as measured by HbA1c)

And it tastes pretty darn good, too.
If you’re already a Shakeology drinker, you already know that. If you’re not yet, what are you waiting for? You gotta get your stash ASAP. You can even sample the flavors for $19.95 with our Taste Samplers. There’s one that includes 1 packet each of Chocolate, Vanilla, Strawberry, and Greenberry.

  11. It does not appear that this study had a control group, a group that was tracked that DID NOT drink Shakeology. At least, track the same group for 90 days PRIOR to drinking Shakeology, and compare those results to the same group on Shakeology. How do we know if the diet and exercise components PRIOR to drinking Shakeology did not contribute to the results? Without a control group, it is easy to spin the results positively. I’m a Shakeology drinker myself for a few months and it “seems” to have helped me, but I also eat well and exercise 6 days a week using various Beach Body workout programs, and I would love to see the study to quiet the nagging question that I have on it’s “true” effects. We curretly don’t have any scientifically validated study to point to, to help convince others to try it. Without a control group, I can say that it “definitely” helped me, nor can we say that this study “isolates” the effect of Shakeology. Clearly other factors can still contribute to the result. Please publish the study so that we can make up our own minds as to its validity.

    2002 was a while ago. Wouldn’t there be an updated study?

  13. How do you feel about this study now that it is no longer recommended to use Shakeology as a meal replacement? Is is safe for someone to only drink Shakeology for breakfast and lunch for 90 days?
