The kids are all going back to school and we are getting back into our "normal" routines. The year officially starts in January, but the start of a new school year feels like a new beginning and a great time to focus on self-care and feeling great!
We are really excited to start our first Health Bet on September 4th! Team Tenacity has a great challenge group where you can get part of the million dollar (plus!) pot by working out three times a week and drinking Shakeology five times a week.
Check out our new back to school lunch meal plans going up on the Team Tenacity blog weekly! Click here to see them!

POMEGRANATE, MORINGA, AND GINKO: SHAKEOLOGY'S SUPERFOOD TRIFECTA
LET'S TALK POMEGRANTE
For starters, pomegranate contains supernutrient antioxidants, which are incredibly important in one’s diet because they neutralize molecules known as free radicals. These destructive little devils damage your body the same way oxygen in the air rusts exposed metal on a car. Unfortunately, free radicals are natural by-products that our cells produce, and if you don’t have enough antioxidants to absorb free radicals, they overwhelm your cells, oxidizing and destroying them.
Other Shakeology ingredients with antioxidants:
Cacao, Acerola Cherry, Pomegranate, Camu-Camu, Bilberry, Goji Berry, Blueberry, Açai, Green Tea, Rose Hips, Cinnamon, Luo Han Guo
Pomegranate also contains supernutrient punicalagins, which may help benefit the heart and health of blood vessels and supernutrient tannins, which may support cardiovascular health.
MOVING ON TO MORINGA
Darin Olien, Shakeology’s original formulator, told us that moringa not only has 3x more iron than spinach, but it also has 4x more beta-carotene than carrots as well as 4x more calcium than milk. Plus, a ½ cup of cooked leaves contains 100% of the recommended daily serving of vitamin C. Wow, that’s some serious fuel for your body!** Moringa contains supernutrient phytonutrients, the active elements found in fruits, vegetables, grains, legumes, nuts, and teas, which support healthy aging and vitality.
Other Shakeology ingredients with phytonutrients: Spirulina, Chlorella, Spinach, Kale
GET HYPED FOR GINGKO
Ginkgo is an adaptogen, which is a special herb that often grows in harsh climates and conditions, at high elevations and on mountaintops where the soil is rocky and oxygen is thin.
Because these plants have to adapt to very harsh conditions, they have highly concentrated nutrients that can help your body cope with stress, and help neutralize harmful free radicals. Plus, they may support strong immune function and naturally help increase energy.
Other Shakeology ingredients with adaptogen herbs: Maca, Astragalus, Ashwagandha, Maitake Mushroom, Cordyceps, Reishi Mushroom, Schisandra, Tulsi [Holy Basil]
Ginkgo also contains supernutrient saponins, which may help promote nutrient absorption.
