The ingredients are based on Nobel Prize winning science in the field of medicine for the improvement of cellular health.
What is in shake shifters?
Shake shifters is a proprietary blend of carefully selected, high quality ingredients that have been scientifically proven to be highly effective in the field of nutritional therapy and weight management.
Pea Protein Isolate
Shake Shifters contains 40g of high-quality Pea Protein Isolate per shake; which has a complete array of essential amino acids (EAAs) and is high in all Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs). These amino acids are vital for muscle building and repair (2, 3).
A recent study has shown that Pea Protein helped trainee’s build more lean muscle than Whey Protein when combined with resistance exercise (4).
Pea Protein has also been shown to control hunger through regulation of appetite hormones and plays a key role in remaking the outer coat of the cell membrane. In comparison to milk protein and whey protein, 15 grams of pea protein was found to be better at inducing satiety (a sense of fullness) in overweight people (5).
In research looking at protein supplements and food consumption in healthy weight men, 20 grams of pea protein was as effective as casein protein and better than egg and whey protein at increasing fullness and reducing calorie intake when taken 30 minutes before a meal (6).
Clinical trials have shown that pea protein aids ins reducing hypertension (high blood pressure), cardiovascular disease management 1 and in managing and preventing obesity (6).
Flaxseed (also referred to as linseed) is a great source of Omega 3 fatty acids due to its high content of Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) (7).
Omega-3 fatty acids play a crucial role in lowering inflammation, managing stress, supporting mood and cognition (10).
Flaxseeds are a strong source of dietary fibre and lignans which support digestion due to it’s strong anti-inflammatory nature. Flaxseeds have also shown to aid in reducing IBS symptoms related to constipation and ulcerative colitis (8, 9).
Flaxseed is one of the most healthful essential oils and works at a cellular level to deliver oxygen to the cell.
The Shake Shifters combination of Flaxseed & Pea Protein Isolate by way of emulsification is necessary for the essential oils to be absorbed into the body (Nobel Prize – 1931).
Supreme Greens Formula
Shake Shifters contains our specially formulated Supreme Greens blend which is a combination of the most antioxidant rich vegetables and algae available. A combination of 7 super green foods contribute to improvements in digestive function, energy production and enhanced immune function (19).
Supreme greens formula content:
- Alfalfa powder
- Broccoli powder
The supreme greens blend contains the green pigmented molecule, chlorophyll. Each green has it’s own unique health properties but generally the large portion of the benefits derives from the richness of chlorophyll within then array of greens in the formula.
Chlorophyll has a potent ability to reduce inflammation and has been shown to reduce markers of inflammation (18).
One of the greens in the formula is spirulina. Spirulina is a blue-green alga which provides a hefty dose of beta-carotene (a potent antioxidant), several trace minerals and vitamins. It has strong anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects (12).
Spirulina is often reported as tasting unpleasant, however we’ve have managed to formulate our meal replacement to taste great whilst simultaneously providing with all the benefits of this remarkably potent health enhancer utilised by the NASA space projects.
Studies suggest spirulina is effective at enhancing fat burning whilst simultaneously protecting the fat that covers all of your cells from oxidative damage (11). Spirulina is also effective at improving muscular endurance and decreasing allergies (13, 14).
Another one of the greens in our formula is chlorella. Chlorella is a freshwater algae that is rich source of bioavailable iron and vitamin B12. Chlorella has immune system enhancing effects (15).
Heavy metal accumulation is a common problem in modern society. Some of these heavy metals include arsenic, cadmium, lead and mercury. Chronic exposure to heavy metals from environmental and industrial sources can contribute to toxic effects that leads to damage to enzymes, proteins and lipids on a cellular and contribute to dysfunctions of the nervous system, immune system and hormonal systems in addition to contributing to poor metabolic rate and poor body composition (16).
Chlorella has been described as a ‘heavy metal chelator’ which means it is able to bind heavy metals and remove them from the body and reduce the harmful impact from them (17).
- Flaxseed powder/lignans
- Inulin fibre
Prebiotics are a type of dietary fibre that encourages the growth of favourable intestinal flora (friendly bacteria) by acting as food for these organisms. Establishing a balanced gut flora has been shown to improve a range of health issues and assist weight loss, particularly Visceral (Belly) fat loss (20).
The prebiotic fibres, inulin, flaxseed fibre and flax lignans, in the Shake shifters formula are intended to improve digestive health, enhance wellbeing and regulate blood sugar (21).
A clinical trial involving 48 overweight adults has shown that supplemental prebiotics have demonstrated an ability to lower body weight and decrease hunger compared to a control group (22).
Fenugreek is a popular, ancient herb used in Arabic and Asian cuisine. This herb has a potent ability to manage blood sugar levels, manage appetite, aid in digestion, support testosterone levels and enhance libido (23, 24, 25).
Research has shown that 4-8g of fenugreek fibre daily was able to significantly reduce appetite, increase satiety and reduce energy intake at later meals in the day (25). Further research has supported this. 1.2g of fenugreek fibres daily reduced fat consumption, reduced overall calorie intake and lowered insulin levels (26).
Glycine is an amino acid and neurotransmitter that can play a both stimulatory and depressant roles in the brain. It has implications in detoxifications, cognition, supporting fatigue, improving sleep quality, managing mood and plays a vital role in protein synthesis, especially collagen synthesis which is the most abundant protein in the body (28, 29, 30)
Glycine is one of the three amino acids that supports production of the body’s major antioxidants, glutathione. This antioxidant plays a crucial role in detoxification, inflammation and removal of harmful environmental compounds that may contribute to negative effects on wellbeing and body composition (27). Evidence suggests that a glycine shortage negatively affects glutathione status (31).
Our formula contains 1g of glycine to support glutathione production to ensure your detoxification systems are working efficiently and to support your wellbeing during the fat loss process.
Green tea extract (GTE)
The plant compounds in green tea (catechins) have been implicated in benefiting almost every organ system in the body. It is neuroprotective, anti-obesity, cardioprotective, anti-carcinogenic, anti-diabetic, aids in protecting the liver and is beneficial for blood vessel health.
Research has shown green tea to have a strong fat reducing effect (32). A study found that green tea catechins had a strong ability to change body composition, decrease in waist circumference, reduced abdominal fat and a lower body fat % with a 1.2kg body weight loss in 90 days compared to a control (33, 34).
What is the difference between Shake Shifters and other weight-loss shakes or meal replacements?
Typically, many of the weight-loss shakes and meal replacements on the market contain cheap, low-quality protein and ingredients. Other shakes will often use added fillers, artificial flavours and stabilisers that often potentially put your health at risk.
Shake shifters provides a high-quality source of protein, essential amino acids, nutrients, vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients, in a convenient and comprehensive meal replacement that leaves no nutritional stone unturned in its goal of helping you to manage your weight and enhance your health.
