Saturday Superfood Spotlight: Pomegranate Fruit

Have you ever eaten a pomegranate? If you have, you know how delicious one is. If you haven’t, you’re missing out—big time. Not only are you depriving your taste buds of a sweet and tangy treat, but you’re also denying your body of one of the healthiest fruits on this planet. However, if you’ve ever had a Shakeology, you’ve fed your body pomegranates, probably without even knowing it. Did you know Pomegranates have more antioxidants than ANY other fruit? Yes, that’s right. Remember, antioxidants fight those detrimental free radicals that destroy healthy cells. In addition, Pomegranate Fruit is also a rich source of vitamin C, thiamin, potassium, beta-carotene, riboflavin, folate, folic acid, vitamin E,  and fiber.

Saturday Superfood Spotlight: Goji Berries

There are so many incredible ingredients in Shakeology that do so many amazing things for your body that I just have to tell you a bit more about them. So today’s ingredient spotlight focuses on powerful little grape-sized fruits called Goji Berries.

These little tomato-colored wonders are credited with helping to promote muscle strength as well as support cardiovascular health. They’re believed to help reduce various signs of aging while promoting a luminescent glow to the skin.* Not only are goji berries rich in vitamins and minerals, they’re also a great source of natural proteins. They’re packed with 18 of the 22 amino acids, 21 dietary minerals, more beta-carotene than carrots, more vitamin C than oranges, and plenty of linoleic acid—which may help keep your hair thick and your skin looking young.

BUT NOT ALL GOJI BERRIES ARE CREATED EQUAL! The best goji berries grow high up in the Helan Mountains, in the Ningxia Province of China. Ningxia is more than 10,000 miles from the west coast of the U.S., and Shakeology uses these berries because they contain natural adaptogenic enzymes, which are there in abundance only when grown at extreme altitudes with just the right environmental conditions. When it comes to Shakeology’s ingredients, only the best of the best will do. And that’s why the Shakeology Ingredient Hunters scoured the earth to source the most potent ingredients out there.

Saturday Superfood Spotlight: Bilberry

Today’s superfood spotlight is on bilberries. Yep, bilberries—not blueberries. Also known in the berry world as the European blueberry or huckleberry. The bilberry is much more than a delicious little fruit. This berry contained in Shakeology is packed with supernutrients that transform this fruit into a superfood.

It is loaded with four times the antioxidants and anthocyanins than blueberries and is extremely rich in vitamin C. SCORE! And for the last 500 years, these little “blue” berries have been used all across Europe for numerous medicinal purposes. The only downside to this amazing little fruit is that the bilberry bush is notoriously difficult to cultivate. Instead of growing in large clusters like blueberries, bilberries grow individually along with their stems, making it so they have to be picked by hand. And since time is money and it takes a lot longer to harvest a bilberry crop, these powerful and potent fruits are more expensive than blueberries. Lucky for you though, if you want some bilberry action in your life, instead of shelling out extra cash at the health food store, just make yourself a delicious and nutritious Shakeology. Because when it comes to putting healthy stuff in your body, Shakeology has got you covered with 70+ ingredients, 41 of which are “superfoods”—foods loaded with essential nutrients that enhance energy, boost immunity and improve mood.
