Honey Colony Equalibrium Energy: My Trial With Superfood

I have been given this product as part of a product review through the Chronic Illness Bloggers network. Although the product was a gift, all opinions in this review remain my own and I was in no way influenced by the company.

 

Honey colony equilibrium

 

I received a jar of Equilibrium Energy from Honey Colony over a month ago.  It’s taken me so long to write because I’ve been in a flare, messed up blog site and computer problems.

The package arrived to me safely and very well packaged.  The jar is 2.3 ounces or 66 grams.  The jar is a reusable Biophontonic Violet Glass jar.  (I had to look that up! It means the jar protects the contents from light).  I usually take photos of boxes as I’m opening them but for some reason I didn’t.  Packaging to make sure a product arrives to you is important and the package was the appropriate size.  Not an oversized Amazon box!

So what is it?

At the core of Equilibrium is raw honey. Eleven other potent superfoods are added—each one organic or wildcrafted, boasting numerous health benefits. The total 12 ingredients bring harmony to a life that may face stress, toxins, and negative energy.    Source: Honey Colony

Jar of Equalibrium Energy

So what’s in the superfood besides raw honey?

The 12 ingredients are:

Active Natural Prebiotics
Phytoplankton
Blue Algae
Medicinal Mushrooms
Double- Directory Adaptogenic Herbs
ORMUS
Ginger
Organic Turmeric
Raw Honey
Bee Pollen
Bee Propolis

Honey Colony has a post about the 87 benefits of the ingredients in the Equilibrium Energy Superfood.  There is so much information on all the 12 ingredients on their website that I can’t do it justice in a blog post.

I started taking it right away. It is a dietary supplement and not a medical product. The directions are that you take a teaspoon in the morning on an empty stomach. When I wake up I have to take an antinauseant immediately and wait for it to take effect. I found that taking the spoonful and then having my morning tea was best for me. Some people have recommended having it in your tea. I was a afraid that if I did that I wouldn’t get all the benefits if it was diluted.

I am very sensitive to textures and found it hard to take for the first two days. After that, I was able to take the spoonful and not complain about the texture.   Anyone who has ever been with me eating and seeing me freak out about mushrooms will know that I can’t even stand the thought of mushrooms even if they were puréed.  It was sweet and gritty kind of like the centre of a fig bar.  That’s the only way to describe it.  It looked like black caviar when you first look at it.

Did it work?  I don’t know.  I was taking it at time when I was having a lupus flare.  My nausea was on the top level for me.  A couple days all I had was the spoon of the Energy with tea or ginger ale.  So some of the days due to my nausea it truly was the only food I had.  I didn’t have to take any Benadryl when I was having a spoon everyday.  I just realized that as I am writing this blog post.  That’s a pretty big benefit in itself.

Will I buy it for myself?  At this point, I can’t afford it on my long term disability reduced wages.  I wish I could because I would like to try it for longer.  It’s a pretty powerful jar of goodness and you only have to take a teaspoon of it daily.  Check out Honey Colony  at http://www.honeycolony.com/  Prices for auto ship are less expensive than buying a single jar as are buying them in a three pack is less expensive.

I hope you enjoyed my review of Honey Colony’s Equilibrium Energy Superfood.

    Fellow Blogger Ness at The Girl with 5 Lads has planted a seed with us Chronic Illness Bloggers and asked us a few questions about who we are #besidesmydiagnosis.  So since I’ve been home for over a year on long-term sick leave, going from doctor to doctor appointments, I knew this was right up my alley and I needed to complete this because I needed to remember who I was #besidesmydiagnosis.   Thank you Ness and here are my answers:

    1. #besidesmydiagnosis the three things about my appearance that I love in the mirror?

    1. My Face; I’ve always had great skin and people always compliment me on it.
    2. My waist; I’ve always had a defined waist, no matter how much my weight has fluctuated
    3. My legs; I’m tall and a lot of that is in my legs

    2. #besidesmydiagnosis the things I have read most are?

    Books, I love books and I always have.

     3. #besidesmydiagnosis my favourite comfort foods are?

    1. Ice cream / gelato
    2. Gummy Bears and Sour Patch Kids
    3. Cereal; rice crispies, corn pops and cheerios have always been my bedtime snack

    4. #besidesmydiagnosis my favourite past times are?

    1. my pupalups – Keely and Ranger
    2. colouring –
    3. photography – mini2z on Instagram
    4. camping – Woodland Park Campground
    5. hammocks https://www.pinterest.com/mini2z/hammocks/
    6. the beach – Sauble Beach
    7. wine –
    8. see question #2

    5. #besidesmydiagnosis my biggest accomplishment since illness is?

    Blogging here and being accepted at a Chronic Illness Blogger!

    Chronic Illness Bloggers Network

    6. #besidesmydiagnosis I feel my best quality is?

    Loving unconditional

    7. #besidesmydiagnosis my motto/mantra to live by?

    Life is a journey not a destination. I take this to mean live your life during your journey as you’ll only have the one journey so make the most of it.

    8. #besidesmydiagnosis I would love to travel to?

    A round the world trip (RTW) with my family. I was researching destinations because we want to go to Thailand to see our Thai daughter who lived with us for the last part of her student exchange program. I found that a RTW ticket is more cost-effective than a round trip ticket. You have a year to use the ticket and you must end at the place you left from.  We were thinking Detroit to LA, LA to Australia, Australia to Thailand, Thailand to the Maldives (you have to stay over the ocean at least once right!?!) Maldives, to Greece, Greece to Ireland, Ireland to Detroit.  I also have a blog post about my Wanderlust.

    9. #besidesmydiagnosis my guilty pleasure is?

    TiVo and Netflix, I’ve watched some crazy things while stuck in bed

    10. #besidesmydiagnosis I have many dreams and ambitions such as?

    Enjoy retirement with my husband and enjoy travel in our 5th wheel RV.

    So will you try to see what you are #besidesmydiagnosis ?

    Rough Times, Blog Changes, Sleep, Flares, Good Things

    I may have lupus but lupus doesn't have me

     

    I hope you can tell but I’ve made some changes to the blog. I recently purchased a Chloe and Marc Theme on Etsy from a nice lady Mai, who installed it as part of purchase.  It worked out that she added the plugins that I requested.  I’m still updating a few things.  Today, after a few days of craziness getting my blog theme looking nice and a lot of headaches with remembering passwords.  The theme I bought was Chloe and Marc and it was on sale.  I love sales and they’re pretty awesome and I love the look and I hope you do too.   If you do see something that doesn’t look right, please let me know.  The whole reason I looked into buying the theme was because when I changed over from WordPress to self hosted my blog looked a mess.  I wasn’t happy where things were and I like neat on some things.  My life is chaos so this is a little part I can control with a lot of saving and closing my computer.

    I may have lupus but lupus doesn't have me

    I’ve had a rough couple weeks with chronic pain.  It’s a searing pain that is in my hips, back and legs.  The itchiness has come back and the nausea is unbearable.  My food consumption is very minute on what I can stand to eat.  Milkshakes, smoothies, citrus and toast are about all that I’m able to tolerate.  I’m an avid tea drinker and I have gone two days without any tea.

    Lupus has had me basically in bed, sleeping, not sleeping Click To Tweet

    Lupus has had me basically in bed, sleeping, not sleeping.  I try to remember me as I used to be when I was able to do anything I wanted to without wondering will I need to rest?  Can I walk through the store to get groceries?  This life of chronic illness has taken so much away from me and I wonder when I will get a break?

    I’ve seen most of my doctors in the last week and a half and it’s basically stay the course for me.  No medication changes or any tests from them in the next two weeks yeah!  I do have one more doctor appointment and its with my gastroenterologist .  I’m still waiting to see the Neurologist who is the doctor for the chronic pain and the migraines. I do have to get a follow up urine test for protein in my urine.  The fact that I had one test with proteins in my urine is concerning enough and las week was crazy, more on that in a minute.  Moods have been the same level of blah. It’s true that pain causes you to be depressed and the depression makes you think of the pain more as well.

    My daughter (who will always be my baby kidlet) last week started college in the Registered Practical Nursing program. Wednesday a call was received and she received a spot in the Bachelor of Science Nursing Program.  I text her, she says she’s in class, I try to explain you need to leave class and call the director back now!  So she went to school in the RPN and came home in the BScN program.  She sold most of her books the next day, she was also able to purchase most of the new ones she needed as well.  I did buy a “code” for over $150, yes a code, the book cost her more money but the code was an insane amount.  Her first day was the Friday and she came home happy.  I knew that she was happy in the RPN but it wasn’t her dream course. Now having a nurse to take care of momma and daddy in the future is a good thing.

    BScN
    Things have been crazy for me with doctors, lupus flare, computer issues and I hope you’re all well.  I’m hoping for some more normal days ahead, at least what’s become my new normal.
