VS        Cho Shakeo

In this article of Shakeology vs. we will compare Isagenix.

If you have never heard of Isagenix, it is also a meal replacement shake that founded in 2002 by John Anderson and Jim and Kathy Coover have created to try and help the obesity problem around the United States. Isagenix Isalean comes in two main flavors: chocolate and vanilla.

Beachbody founded in 1998 by Carl Daikeler and Jon Congdon created a program that included all parts of healthy living.

The positives of Isagenix is that it contains 23 grams of protein per serving (compared to Shakeology’s 19 grams of protein per serving). Isagenix, like Shakeology, also contains many naturally occurring ingredients which set them apart from other meal replacements. However, I have not found other components that set Isagenix apart from Shakeology.

On the negative side, Isagenix contains 1100% more fat than Shakeology (6 grams compared to less than half a gram). It also contains more cholesterol and sodium than is found in Shakeology and contains 240 calories per serving when Shakeology only has 150 calories per serving.

Isagenix lacks to potency of the vitamins and minerals that Shakeology contains. Isagenix has only 40% of the daily recommended allowance of Vitamin C versus 300% in Shakeology.  It lacks significance of other vitamins contained in every Shakeology drink such as Vitamin B1, B2, and B3. You would actually have to drink 2-4 Isagneix shakes to get the same concentration of vitamins and minerals found in just 1 Shakeology shake.

I do feel that Isagenix is one of the better meal replacement shakes, but it just does not compare to Shakeology.
