A 30-year-old female asked:
Is shakeology protein powder safe for breastfeeding?

Not sure: I reviewed the shakeology web site and there were some concerns that I have reviewing the ingredients
They list several added anti-oxidants and nutrients and basically my concern is that these have not been studies in babies
The other question would be how much of the shake is being transferred through breast milk and that has also not been studied- I think a well balanced diet is likely better
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.
