Health Benefits at a Glance:
Maintaining or losing weight is a question of reducing the number of calories you consume daily. Wellness Shakes from Life Extension® are ideal meal replacements because they keep you satiated by offering a low-calorie mix of essential nutrients that replace a meal with a single shake. Available in chocolate or vanilla variants, they taste great and are also part of the 2:5™ by Life Extension® Nutrition Program.
Why it Works:
With only 1 gram of sugar and a delicious balance of plant protein, fat, carbs, and fiber, our Wellness Shakes are a key component of the 2:5™ by Life Extension® Nutrition Program, but they offer a variety of benefits all on their own.
The Science Behind the Product:
Containing both protein, fat, carbs, and fiber, Wellness Shake Chocolate Flavor powder formula contains all the main nutrients you need from a healthy meal replacement - and that at a very low-calorie count. This makes it ideal for any weight loss regimen, or for when you want to maintain your current, healthy weight.
Proteins and fiber
Our Wellness Shake powder formulas feature a blend of beneficial plant protein types such as pea protein, whole-grain brown rice, chia, and flaxseed proteins. A diet high in plant proteins such as these has been associated with cardiovascular health and better overall health . Six grams of fiber promotes digestive system health.
Dietary fats and carbohydrates
Dietary fats are essential nutrients. They play a role in energy generation, in making and nourishing every cell in the body, and provide the raw materials for some of the body’s most important messaging molecules. Carbohydrates are the body’s primary fuel and help sustain your energy levels.
Mix one scoop of your favorite shake flavor with 240 ml of water in a shaker or blender. Drink one delicious, macronutrient-balanced and low-calorie shake to replace a meal and support your weight loss regimen or maintenance of a healthy weight.
