Written by Yvonne Bishop

Meal replacement shakes & meal supplements can be very convenient and cost effective – but beware as not all shakes are created equally!  Many companies have produced meal replacement shakes that are masquerading as healthy nutritional products yet they’re loaded with ingredients that more often than not, cause more harm than good.  When choosing a shake, either as a meal replacement or supplement, be sure to check for the 5 potentially harmful ingredients and stay clear of these products.
