This meal replacement shake was rated #1 by our research team.
When compared with other products, we concluded that it has a new formula with the best composition and will help people lose weight faster than other shakes in a natural way.
The quality of the Visalus Shake seems really controversial to our review team.
To start we are going to take a look at the positives first and we have to say that the calorie content is good. Since you are looking to reduce the amount of calories you are taking in through meals, the number here is well-balanced. Furthermore, there are a number of vitamins and minerals included that your body requires in order for weight loss efforts to be effective.
On the negative side, the Visalus shakes do not contain a lot of fiber, which means that it does little to suppress appetite. They sell a separate product called Vi-trim for suppression needs, so it really should not be too surprising to find yourself feeling hungry shortly after you have a shake. The problem with a shake that does not take away the snack cravings is that you end up chasing empty calories through snacks.
good appetite suppressant, exotic ingredients
high price, poor taste, high in calories, high sugars
The taste of the shake is not very appealing, but this is probably due to the fact that it has low sugar content, which is a must for this type of product. It is now well known that sugar plays a major role in weight gain, and while amounts have to be kept as low as possible in this type of product, you will need something to make it palatable. We suggest using Stevia or another natural sweetener to add flavor.
Another thing that can be viewed as a negative is that the shake only has 12 grams of protein. While not terrible, it certainly is not preferred. The ideal amount should be closer to 15 grams, but this little detail would not be enough to say that the shake is not worth your while.
What is a little concerning, though, is that the protein in the shake is a combination of whey and soy protein. There have been several studies written about the potential health issues that come with using soy products. Breast cancer, kidney stones, brain damage, and potential pregnancy issues are just a few of the problems you may encounter with soy. For that reason, we suggest not taking the chance with soy-based products.
With just 90 calories and 1 gram of sugar in each shake, Visalus appears to be a good bet. But, on the negative side, you have the potential health issues brought on by soy protein and there are no appetite suppressants to speak of. Our team believes it is fair to say that there are better meal replacement shakes available on the market.
