Benefits of Shakeology: Does Shakeology Boost Your Immune System?

I’ve been reaping the benefits of my favorite nutritional supplement for awhile now. Here are the thoughts I want to pass on to anyone wondering “Does Shakeology boost your immune system?”.

It happens every year. I get miserably sick. Sometimes even twice each winter. In late October or early November, it feels like I’m walking a thin line between life and death for a good week, sometimes a big longer.

Meanwhile, everyone else in my family gets a little sniffle and shakes it off in a day or two.

I’ve tried the flu shots and a bunch of immunity boosters, but nothing has prevented the plague from finding its way into my system.

It happened recently again. On Day 1, I had a scratchy throat, lower back pain, lethargy, general confusion and grumpiness. All the tell tale signs of the onset of the flu.

I tried to convince myself it was just exhaustion from a recent trip to the Game Plan Event in New Orleans. I was wrong. On Day 2, I was in bed…officially sick.

I slept for about three hours and felt horrible when I woke up. I notified my assistant that I would not be in the following day. No one in the office should be subjected to the coughing and nose blowing I was certain would be going down.

On Day 3, I woke up and actually felt alive. Not great, but alive. I had a light sniffle (much like the one my family always gets as I lay dying). No coughing. No sneezing. A little sore to be sure, but the plague had not taken root.

It was just a matter of time, I thought. Tomorrow is going to be hell just like usual. I stayed home and rested. Did some work and slept a little.

Today is that tomorrow. Day 4. I was pretty shocked when I woke up feeling good. Not great, but good. Much better than the day before. And, I only got better from there

Now, I don’t have any scientific evidence to back this up, but there is only one thing that I’ve done differently this year than in previous years—drink Shakeology.

I drink it every morning for breakfast. I don’t miss a day. When I go on vacation, I take it with me. When I don’t feel so hot, I drink it twice a day. And, it does have some powerful ingredients—like prebiotics and probiotics, adaptogens, and more.

I’m also giving my body good nutrition and exercise, which is a winning combination.

Again, I have no scientific confirmation that Shakeology has anything to do with the improvement in my immune system, but it’s a very reasonable conclusion given that it’s the only major change I’ve made and it makes me feel so good on my good days.

If you are like me and you get sick every year, maybe consider ditching that $4 latte (and all the sugar that’s in it) and try Shakeology instead for about the same price.

It’s working for me. I can’t guarantee it will work for you too, but I would sure love it if it did and I absolutely think it’s worth a try.

The Shakeology Sampler Pack is the best way to give it a good try. Each sampler contains an assortment of Shakeology and a Welcome Guide. Here are the two different options:

NOTE: The Sampler Pack is only for first-time Shakeology users, so there is a limit of one per person.
