Wondering if that boost of energy you get from Shakeology comes from caffeine? Greenberry Shakeology is the only flavor with 0 caffeine in it. The rest of the flavors have trace levels of caffeine. From what I could find the green tea extract which is present in both Chocolate and Greenberry is decaffeinated but Chocolate and Chocolate Vegan both contain minimum levels of caffeine from the cocoa in those formulas. With Beachbody sticking to their standards of using whole ingredients and not extracts in the vegan formulas, an all natural green tea extract containing low levels of caffeine is used in both Tropical Strawberry and Chocolate Vegan.
Beachbody has said Chocolate Shakeology contains about 18mg of caffeine. A regular cup of coffee has 75-100mg while a cup of decaf coffee has 2-15mg in it. At 18mg of caffeine, Shakeology is similar to a cup of decaf coffee. What this means is you’re not going to get the ups and downs or the jitters from drinking Shakeology. It’s a smooth and constant energy throughout the day.
If you’re looking to kick a caffeine habit completely then go with Greenberry Shakeology. Many people I talk to have said that Shakeology has helped them eliminate coffee from their morning routine all together or at least put it at bay. The strong amounts of caffeine in many of the coffee’s today can be overwhelming at time. Shakeology will satisfy your caffeine addiction with a little bit of caffeine but a whole lot more of nutrition.
