I love trying new products to share with my followers so when Honey Colony reached out to me and asked me if I wanted to sample their new honey, energy, superfood, I jumped at the chance! Anyone who knows me know I adore honey and basically drink 1/2 a bottle a day. You think I'm kidding? I'm not, ask my husband! He jokes that hummingbirds and bees should be following me around everywhere for how much honey I consume. I have in my morning coffee, in my smoothies, over greek yogurt, by itself on a metal spoon. I love honey! And it's so good for your body. It's got anti-inflammatory properties, antioxidants, it promotes healthy bacteria in the body, it helps fend off a cold, it's really nature's wonder drug! I will be sure and do a whole other post and YouTube video on why I adore honey so much.
When I opened up Equilibrium's Energy Superfood, I assumed it would be honey but it's actually not. It's mixture of all kinds of good stuff for your body. The list of ingredients are too long to list, but here are a few stars of the show:
- Bee Pollen
- Organic Tumeric
- Raw Honey
- Panax Ginseng Root
And those are just the first few ingredients!
According to Honey Colony's website, Bee Pollen has been proven to be one of the most complete naturally occurring foods. Bee pollen is rich in B complex vitamins and contains vitamins A, C, D, E, selenium, lecithin, and phytochemicals. It is rich in antioxidants, and is a natural appetite suppressant, antibiotic, and anti-allergy. And you all know how much I adore Tumeric. I practically live on the stuff! Tumeric has been shown to have wonderful medicinal abilities including, but not limited to anti-inflammation, tumour growth inhibition, destruction of bacteria membranes, and immune system enhancement, according to Honeycolony.com.
The benefits of taking this stuff is pretty spectacular and it claims to give you an immediate energy boost. I did not really notice a different in my energy levels after taking it, but the taste is great and it works wonderfully in smoothies. I will be taking Equilibrium Energy Superfood daily to reap all of the benefits the ingredients in it have to offer. It's sort of like a power packed super pill, but in food form. Plus, it's super easy to take! You can mix in your bullet proof coffee, or in a smoothie, you can eat it off a spoon, or put it on top of some fruit. The possibilities of eating it are endless, get creative it with it and have fun!
The only con to Equilibirum Energy Superfood is the price tag. For college students and young people, they may not be able to afford the $100 price tag. You pay $98.50 for 12oz. That's a bit pricey for the average fitness person, but it does have raw, high grade, ingriedients so I understand why the price is so high.
