The Glycemic Index & Shakeology

  Shakeology® is officially certified on the low end of what’s already considered “low” on the Glycemic Index (GI).


If you’re not familiar with the GI, it’s basically a scale of 1 to 100 that measures how much or how quickly a particular food causes your blood sugar to rise. The higher the number, the higher the blood sugar “spike,” and ultimately, the worse the crash. Type 2 diabetes can be a product of too many high-GI foods.
Anything lower than a 55 is considered low GI. Shakeology comes in REALLY low with a score of 24!  Believe it or not this is lower than most fruits and veggies, This is mainly because Shakeology uses naturally-occurring sugar rather than that high fructose corn syrup made from genetically-modified corn.
