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.
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
So what’s in the superfood besides raw honey?
The 12 ingredients are:
Active Natural Prebiotics
Double- Directory Adaptogenic Herbs
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.
