Shakeology Glycemic Index
Is Shakeology safe for me to use if I have diabetes? This is a question I have received quite often and so I wanted to share the answer with you here in this post.
Shakeology® is officially certified on the low end of what’s already considered “low” on the Glycemic Index (GI). This gives you a pretty good idea of what your answer will be to the question, Is Shakeology safe for me to use if I have Diabetes.
If you’re not familiar with the GI, it’s basically a scale of 1 to 100 that measures how much or how quickly a particular food causes your blood sugar to rise. The higher the number, the higher the blood sugar “spike,” and ultimately, the worse the crash. Type 2 diabetes can be a product of too many high-GI foods.
Anything lower than a 55 is considered low GI. Shakeology Glycemic Index score comes in REALLY low at of 24! Believe it or not this is lower than most fruits and veggies, This is mainly because Shakeology uses naturally-occurring sugar rather than that high fructose corn syrup made from genetically-modified corn.
