Slique, Strong, and Fit #4: Slique Shake

If pills and packets aren’t your thing, that’s okay. I understand because I take many supplements to ensure I stay in good health and someday I feel like I couldn’t add anymore pills to my morning without hitting my gag relax too many times. BUT there’s relief! Shakes!! Who doesn’t love a great shake! Let’s dive in to learning about the Slique Shake.

Slique® Shake

Slique Shake is a vegan meal replacement that provides quick, satisfying, and delicious nutrition. It’s full of clean ingredients, vitamins, and minerals and is formulated with Slique Essence™ essential oil. This shake may support healthy weight management when combined with regular exercise and a sensible diet.*

We love downing these when on the go or when we don’t have time to prepare a meal; they’re truly a lifesaver. When you are hungry, you’re more vulnerable to reach for something unhealthy; keeping these shakes on hand can help keep you on track. The best part is that they come in single serve-packets, so you can easily keep them in your purse, gym bag, or backpack!

Slique Shake is:

• Vegan—It contains a blend of pea protein, quinoa, wolfberry, pumpkin seed protein, and alfalfa grass juice powder for vegan-friendly protein.
• Raw—Slique Shake is considered a raw product because it is processed under 118 degrees Fahrenheit.
• Free of soy, dairy, and nut-derived ingredients; artificial colors and flavors; preservatives; and cholesterol.
• Made of non-GMO ingredients.
• Formulated with naturally derived B vitamins, including natural folate.
• Sweetened with stevia, organic coconut palm sugar, wolfberries, and strawberries.
• A good source of potassium, folate (vitamin B9), pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), and chromium.
• An excellent source of vitamin C, thiamin (vitamin B1), riboflavin (vitamin B2), and vitamin B6.
• Rich in phosphorus, iodine, magnesium, zinc, selenium, copper, molybdenum, iron, and niacin (vitamin B3).
• Fortified with high-potency manganese (150 percent).

Slique Shake provides a sustained source of energy through a split ratio of macronutrients that will help keep you fuller longer. It also contains a wide range of essential micronutrients and a fruit and vegetable blend that provides powerful phytonutrients to ensure you’re giving your body the nutrition it needs.

Let’s talk more about what macronutrients are and how this makes Slique a unique product. The macronutrients that we obtain from food for energy are carbohydrates, protein, fat, and fiber. In Slique Shake, the macronutrient ratio is 38:30:20:12. So 38 percent of the energy comes from carbohydrates, 30 percent from protein, 20 percent from fat, and 12 percent from fiber. Young Living designed Slique Shake with these macro ratios to keep you fuller longer and to contribute to a well-rounded diet.

Carbohydrates:
The carbs in Slique Shake are from organic quinoa, organic pumpkin seed, and coconut palm sugar. Organic quinoa and coconut palm sugar have been shown to have a low glycemic index (GI). GI refers to how long it takes between ingesting a carb source to the resulting rise in blood sugar and, hence, energy levels.

Fats: medium-chain triglycerides
The fats in non-GMO coconut are known as medium-chain triglycerides, or MCTs, and these are treated much like carbs. They provide energy-rich, sustained fuel and are perfect for those of us with busy lifestyles. The fats in Slique provide 20 percent of the total energy and are made up of MCTs to ensure that the essential fatty acids are included in optimum amounts. But MCTs have another invaluable quality: they are not susceptible to oxidation and rancidity, meaning that they do not contribute to the formation of atherosclerotic plaques, which increase the risk of cardiovascular disease. In short, MCTs from coconut/palm are a healthy and efficient source of energy.

Vitamins and minerals (also known as micronutrients) in Slique Shake:
• Potassium, folate (vitamin B9), pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), and chromium
•Vitamin C, thiamin (vitamin B1), riboflavin (vitamin B2), and vitamin B6
• Phosphorus, iodine, magnesium, zinc, selenium, copper, molybdenum, iron, and niacin (vitamin B3)
• High-potency manganese (150 percent DV)

Fiber:
Slique Shake contains 7 g of the recommended daily amount of fiber. The fiber is a mixture of soluble and insoluble fiber and comes naturally from the food ingredients. The high fiber content of Slique Shake encourages healthy digestion.*

Phytonutrients in Slique Shake:
Slique Shake is rich in phytonutrients because of all the plant-based ingredients. We have also added some additional phytonutrients like wolfberry, pumpkin seed protein, and alfalfa grass juice powder to optimize the Slique Shake formula and to complement the antioxidant nutrients vitamins C and E and selenium.

When it comes to meal replacements, this shake is as clean as they come.
