ZoneRx Shakes are the ideal meal replacement formulated with balanced nutrition to help you feel fuller longer. Each shake is designed for maximum satiety and optimal gut health with the inclusion of high levels of polyphenols, prebiotics, and the right balance of protein to low-glycemic carbohydrates.

Relive your childhood with these Neapolitan chocolate flavored shakes. With its mild sweetness, delicious taste and the thickness of a true milkshake you can feel indulgent without the guilt. The inclusion of maqui berry extract and our proprietary cocoa extract, CacaoRx, makes these shakes anything but ordinary, plus you get the full spectrum of nutrition with their precise balance of protein to carbohydrates and micronutrients.

Our convenient 10 serving canister is a great way to sample the flavor and can easily be combined with our other two flavors for a full month of variety. Mornings never tasted so good!

What makes each ZoneRx Shake unique?

  • MaquiRx® and CacaoRx™— Our proprietary polyphenol extracts provide 250 milligrams of polyphenols to help activate genes that may reduce oxidative stress, inflammation and the rate of aging*.
  • Fortified with prebiotics— Enjoy superior appetite control and gut health support.
  • 16 Grams of Protein— Balanced with low-glycemic carbohydrates to help support stable blood sugar control.
  • 23 Vitamins and Minerals — Provides a complete meal replacement without the need to add anything additional.
  • No Added Sugar — newly reformulated to contain allulose, a natural low-calorie sweetener that helps support better blood sugar control compared to fructose

ZoneRx Shakes use Controlled Release Nutrition to help control hunger and satiety giving you four to five hours of appetite suppression. The balance of protein to low-glycemic carbohydrates helps control hormones in the gut, brain, and the blood. This is the foundation of the Zone Diet and is enhanced by the presence of prebiotics and polyphenols*.

If you want optimal wellness, you need a lifetime strategy and products that deliver results you can see, feel and test.  The ZoneRx shakes are part of that dietary strategy. We call it Evidence-based Wellness®.

Serving Suggestions

To promote an even better gut health response, we suggest mixing 1 scoop of ZoneRx Shake mix with 10 ounces of 2% lactose-free milk in place of water and adding 1 Zone block of berries (about 1 cup). Lactose free milk provides complex sugars not found in plant sources that promote an even greater gut health response by supporting the growth of friendly bacteria while maintaining the balance of protein and low-glycemic carbohydrates needed for maximum Controlled Release Nutrition. The absence of lactose in the product will eliminate any digestive problems for individuals with even the slightest amount of lactose intolerance. The use of berries gives the ZoneRx Shakes even better glycemic control and gut health benefits with the polyphenols and fiber they contain.

Appetite suppression requires both stable blood sugar control and a healthy gut to be working in unison. Our new ZoneRx shakes do both with their combination of a balanced protein to low glycemic carbohydrate ratio plus the inclusion of 250mg of highly-purified polyphenol extracts needed for optimal gut health.

How ZoneRx Shakes work…

Our Controlled Release NutritionÒ technology helps support stable blood sugar levels with the balance of protein to the glycemic load in each food product we produce. That basic concept of Controlled Release Nutrition is now enhanced with high levels of purified polyphenol extracts to promote optimal gut health (1,2) *. Now you have a 1-2 punch for hours of appetite control with unrivaled taste and convenience. If you aren’t hungry, you eat fewer calories. If you eat fewer calories, you lose excess body fat. If you lose excess body fat, your blood pressure, blood sugar, and blood lipids will improve. It’s that easy when you are in the Zone.  The ZoneRx shakes make it easier to get there.

9 reviews for Dr. Sears’ ZoneRx Shakes – Chocolate (10 servings)

  1. Denis Sullivan

    Unlike Voyt I rate the shakes 5 star! I wonder if Voyt is actually feeling over full as they are very satiating. Not consuming quite so much may make all the difference.

  2. Voyt Amanowicz (verified owner)

    If there was such rating, i would qualify this shake at minus five stars. It is excessively sweet, diabetics would like it very much. After consumption, in the stomach acts like a heavy stone which multiplies. One of multiplications moves into liver, the others move into digestive system. It takes lots of time to lose this very unpleasant symptoms.
    I choose this shake to replace Zone Cereal which is not available for several months. It was delicious and easily digestible. Zone Labs are specializing in creating that and other Shakes and ignore the Cereal. I wonder if those other Shakes are as bad as this one. I don’t want to try them. I am hesitating if I should throw this into garbage?
    I am on Zone diet for 28 years – it keeps me in good health and many other Zone products are excellent.

      Voyt, Thank you for your comments and for being a long-time customer. Feedback like yours is so important to us for refining our products in the future. We are sorry to hear you did not like our chocolate shakes but we will share your feedback with our team for future reformulations. With regards to our cereal this is something we are still in process on but the supply chain issues have been a real struggle for us in terms of securing new ingredients, especially with the majority of wheat coming from Ukraine. It is our hope that this will be back in our product line in the future. Thank You, Dr. Sears Zone

    It was a little skeptical of the new formula for the chocolate shake, but after trying it I was pleasantly surprised how good it was. It was delicious and in fact I thought it was better than the old formula. This was definitely up to the Doctor Sears standard. I feel it’s hard to perfect perfection, but he has definitely done it in this case. I use the shakes two different ways, one as a regular meal and also as a two block snack (a half a serving worth). Either way it’s perfect, and satisfies for hours.

    The chocolate is delicious, creamy and filling. I add a few ice cubes so it is colder. Either use it for breakfast or lunch depending on my day

    I think I may have undersold these lol! I look forward all day to my Zone ‘Frosty’ that I drink in my car on the way to work, providing me 15 minutes of bliss. Last afternoon’s shake kept me going through the entire shift – one which included evacuating the restaurant at 8 pm, entirely resetting, and restarting a half hour later where we all left off (due to a towel having caught fire in a dryer downstairs). By the time all was said and done, and I finally had a few minutes to stand up and eat, it was 10:00 pm. All thanks to the Zone Diet!

  6. D Rivera

    Paying thirty something dollars for 10 servings is excessive. The price will keep me from buying more.

  7. K Freed

    I love these shakes!!! So far I’ve only tried the chocolate. I make it in my blender with a couple of ice cubes 1 1/2 to 2 cups lactose free milk. I agree with the reviewer above it does taste a lot like a Wendy’s frosty. And at 3 $ a shake for my everyday before I head in to work at 4 pm so I don’t eat the freshly baked cookies, roasted garlic bread and fresh popcorn – that’s a bargain lol!

  8. Tracy Concannon (verified owner)

    For my first time ordering the Zone Rx shakes, I ordered a 10 day supply of each flavor, vanilla, strawberry, and chocolate, to try then all. I do use a blender to make the shakes, and follow the instructions almost to a T (I blend with 10 oz lactose-free 2% milk, and have with 8 almonds on the side.) I’ve taken to blending in 1 ice cube, to make it colder. Also, I sometimes have more like 12-15 almonds with it. It blends perfectly into a thick, creamy shake, that seems like a cross between a milkshake and a Wendy’s Frosty. I have a very active/physical job as a City Carrier Assistant (USPS letter carrier working 40-70 hr work weeks.) This is my new, easy breakfast (previously I would eat a zone-balanced breakfast of meat and fruit.) I’m happy and relieved to discover these shakes sustain me for usually 5 hours. Subjectively, based on flavor, I rank them:

    Best = Chocolate
    CLOSE second = Strawberry
    Last but not least = Vanilla

    Needs fewer Carbs and Sugar. Otherwise, this product is very good.

Why Do ZoneRx Shakes Look Purple?

The purple color, most notable in the vanilla shakes comes from the presence of the highly purified polyphenol extract derived from the maqui berry. Maqui berry contains the highest levels of a special class of polyphenols known as delphinidins.  These are the same polyphenols that give red wine its color.

I’m not lactose intolerant do I still need to use lactose-free milk?

We suggest using 10oz of 2% lactose-free milk in place of water or milk alternatives even if you don’t have issues with lactose.  Many individuals may have a low-level sensitivity to lactose even if they aren’t lactose intolerant, so the complete removal of lactose can only help to improve gut health (1).

Lactose-free milk is rich in complex sugars similar to those found in human breast milk.  These complex sugars are not found in plant sources and thus provide the ideal nutrition to generate more beneficial species of bacteria in our gut.

Is the ZoneRx Shake Mix Lactose-Free?

Yes, the ZoneRx Shake mix is lactose-free.  The lactose found in standard whey and milk protein sources has been totally removed by ultrafiltration.  These are known as isolates because of the removal of lactose.  This is a complex process, but essential for optimal gut health.

If you use the ZoneRx Shakes, do you still need to supplement with polyphenols?

Dr. Sears believes that individuals should consume at least 1,000 mg of polyphenols per day for wellness and athletic performance and about 1,500 mg per day for anti-aging to help with stimulation of AMP kinase*.  To get those levels, one would need to eat about 10 servings of non-starchy vegetables and fruits. Reaching those levels with food alone is difficult.  Furthermore, many of the sources rich in polyphenols either have pesticide contamination or heavy metal contamination.  For example, strawberries and spinach are good sources of polyphenols, but each is often rich in pesticides.  Cocoa powder which is the basic component of chocolate products is often rich in the heavy metal cadmium.  The polyphenols we use in the ZoneRx shakes are highly purified polyphenol extracts that have GRAS status meaning they have passed strict testing to be able to be used in food products.  Virtually no other polyphenol extract available has this designation.  Although we are the only company to list the levels of polyphenols in all of our polyphenol-enriched products, it is the type of polyphenols in those products that makes a difference.  The polyphenol extracts used in the ZoneRx Shakes is a combination of a chromatographically purified Maqui berry extract, rich in delphinidins to help support improved blood sugar control, and cadmium-free cocoa extracts that help support improved blood flow and reduction of insulin resistance.  Both of these polyphenol extracts have been supported by clinical studies (1).

Are ZoneRx Shakes Gluten Free?

Yes, the ZoneRx shakes are gluten-free.  Unless someone has true celiac disease, gluten should not be a concern as Dr. Sears and vast majority of the gut research community believes that individuals who are “gluten sensitive” may actually have sensitivity to FODMAPs (Fermentable Oligo-, Di- and Monosaccharides And Polyols (1).

  1. Muir JG and Gibson PR. The Low FODMAP Diet for Treatment of Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Other Gastrointestinal Disorders. Gastroenterol Hepatol 9: 450–452 (2013)

Are ZoneRx Shakes non-GMO?

Yes, the ZoneRx shakes are non-GMO.

What Allergens do the ZoneRx Shakes include?

The ZoneRx shakes do contain milk and soy. These come from the milk fractions that supply the protein and the soy lecithin used as an emulsifier in ZoneRx Shake.  The whey protein isolate and milk protein isolate used the ZoneRx Shake are both lactose-free.  They are more expensive, but provide a far better quality of both proteins with significantly less potential effects on gut health since lactose-free products also low in FODMAPs.

What are the sources of prebiotics in ZoneRx?

Prebiotics are the fermentable fibers essential for gut health.  The sources of prebiotics in ZoneRx come from a variety of natural fermentable fibers including guar gum, inulin, oat fiber, fructo-oligo saccharides, and a synthetic resistant starch (Fiber-Sol).  These fermentable fibers are required to supply the necessary energy and metabolites (such as short chain fatty acids) for maintenance of gut barrier integrity to help prevent a leaky gut*.  However, without adequate levels of polyphenols present at the same time, optimal gut health will not be achieved.

Does the cocoa in ZoneRx contain caffeine?

The cocoa extract used in ZoneRx Shakes is a highly purified to reduce heavy metals, such as cadmium, while simultaneously increasing its polyphenol content.   There is some caffeine in the cocoa polyphenol extract, but in very low concentrations, and when this is diluted in the final shake it represents far less caffeine than found in a cup of decaffeinated coffee.

Are ZoneRx Shakes suitable for children?

ZoneRx Shakes are ideal for children as they are balanced in protein and carbohydrate, plus they contain both polyphenols and fermentable fiber (i.e. prebiotics) that promote a healthy gut. We might suggest using ½ a scoop and 5oz of lactose-free milk for small children because of their smaller size.

Do ZoneRx Shakes contain artificial sweeteners?

No. Artificial sweeteners can cause adverse changes in the microbial composition of the gut. The only sweeteners used in ZoneRx Shake are natural sweeteners such as allulose, monk fruit and stevia.

What is allulose and why did it replace fructose as the primary sweetener in the ZoneRx Shakes?

Allulose is a natural low-calorie sweetener that has a similar sweet taste to real sugar. Allulose has the same chemical formula as fructose, but it is arranged differently. Why we prefer it to fructose is that this difference in structure prevents your body from metabolizing allulose the same way as fructose, making it a low-calorie sweetener that provides more health benefits. This further improves the hormonal and appetite control of the ZoneRx Shakes to make them an even more ideal meal replacement.

Why do you include soy in the shakes?

Zone shakes contain soy lecithin which is exceptionally low in isoflavones and used as an emulsifier to help with texture and creaminess.
