Oprah Magazine Shakeology, May 2011 Issue
I get Oprah magazine but rarely have time to read it, I save them and hopefully get to read them at some point...
But when I got the May issue of Oprah the other day, something on the cover caught my eye:
6 Superfoods that Will Change the Way you Eat
Of course I had to find out what these where but I was pretty much already sure they are in the Isagenix super foods I already take.
On page 214 it talks about Darin Olien - he traveled around to get all good stuff to eat then made a shake out of it - sounds familiar, doesn't it? That's what our founder, John Anderson, did.
I am so glad to see this article because it will help to educate people about what great health benefits we can get from plants!
Is it sold in stores? No, it appears to be a similar set-up to Isagenix: "...you can't buy it in stores, but you can purchase it from one of our thousands of authorized Coaches."
Shakeology vs Isagenix: I can't say I know everything about Shakeology but I can say Isagenix products have even more ingredients with all 90 nutrients the body needs plus Chinese adaptogens and way too much to write here. The Shakeology site doesn't say where their whey protein comes from, ours is from New Zealand where the cows are 100% grass fed; no chemicals put on the grass AND the whey is undenatured (very important to preserve the nutritional benefits). I also appreciate all the other stuff I get from Isagenix; the Cleanse for Life, which is aloe vera juice, the Ionix with shilajit... I could go on and on.
Lastly, a Shakeology shake cost $4.00 per serving, an IsaLean shake costs $2.75!
