Benefits of health shakes
By Connie De La Rosa
As we age, it becomes more important to pay attention to the essential vitamins our body needs and can become more difficult if our eating habits start to decline because of medications, depression or overall decreased appetite which contributes to inadequate amounts of nutrition.
“Meal replacement shakes contain all 50 nutrients and vitamins that our body needs in addition to a minimum of 24 grams of protein ” according to Doug Ward, Manager of a local nutrition club. Surprisingly, in addition to the benefits of a meal replacement shake, it is high in fiber, low carb, low sugar, low calorie of about 300 calories per shake and has no dairy. What most people are not aware of is that only pharmaceutical grade supplements are FDA checked and like the local nutrition club, may receive a five star rating. Other meal supplements, if not a pharmaceutical grade, are only 70% accurate in nutrition and 30% are unknown ingredients in which are not inspected by FDA if not 100% of the daily essential vitamins.
Participating in a nutrition club has a benefit of providing a free wellness evaluation that will give you concrete information of what your body is lacking then continuing a follow up to discuss your overall energy levels and other areas of improvement that your body may have been lacking prior to the meal replacement.
