One thing I really like doing is learning about the ingredients found in Shakeology, the healthy meal replacement shake by Beachbody. It’s so interesting to read about the natural fruits, herbs and plants that grow around this world that are so beneficial to our health that people have lived off of for centuries. Before I started drinking Shakeology, I had no idea that these types of superfoods existed. I only thought of healthy eating as eating your fruits and vegetables and staying away from processed food. Thanks to Shakeology I’m learning so much about how to heal my body from the inside out and feed it the foods that it was intended to have.
Shakeology is a healthy meal replacement shake with over 70 natural ingredients that include superfoods, plants and herbs from indigenous cultures all over the world. One of its many ingredients is Luo Han Guo. Luo Han Guo is a fruit that has been used as part of traditional Chinese medicine for centuries and has been nicknamed the “Longevity Fruit”. It was named after a Buddhist monk called Luohan. It’s the perfect ingredient for Shakeology because it has many great health benefits but it was also chosen because it is a natural sweetener.
Luo Han Guo earned its nickname because the region where it is grown, Guangxi Province, the residents live to be over 100 years old. It is considered the cousin to the cucumber and has a hard thin shell. It is used after it has been dried and can be easily processed into a powder that is 300 times sweeter than sugar. Since making it’s a way into the western culture, it is more frequently consumed as a sweetener. It’s a healthier alternative to processed sweeteners like sucralose or pure cane sugar and can be used by people with diabetes. What is more impressive is its many health benefits.
Luo Han Guo has natural healing powers. It has been known to support the immune system, respiratory system and the digestive tract. Its medicinal purposes range from allergies to cancer and recent studies have suggested that it may inhibit tumors. It naturally has an antihistamine affect which is why it has been known to treat allergies and asthma. It has been known to treat colds, sore throats and fever. These are just a few of its healing qualities. The skin of the fruit can heal wounds and the roots are used to heal ringworm and other skin ailments. Luo han guo has many purposes. When combined with all the other ingredients of Shakeology, it just makes drinking this healthy meal replacement shake worth more than any other shake on the market.
