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.

Spoons needed

TodayFeatured Image -- 1567 is an extra spoon day.  Why does showering exhaust me so? I have a rash on my right hand and left elbow from the lupus.  It’s really strange but it’s a normal symptom, I get blister like things and then they scar.  This is so much fun – NOT!

We had a storm last night and my hubby woke up and somewhere in there he told the youngest girlie that she could have a fish tank.  Once I woke up, I said NO but daddy said she could. She had one before and it was never cleaned but she’s very stubborn and went an bought one.  She got the accessories to go with her so far worldly travels and a turtle.  She’s 17 and on a turtle fascination recently.  She will be picking up “sacrificial” fish later tonight.  I do have to say it looks nice.

I’ve been having regular migraines with the concussion therapy but he’s seeing LOTS of progress in me already.  I have two apps that I had to download to my phone to do exercises with.  The one makes the dogs go crazy because it’s a frequHoodieency thing. The other is a metronome that I have to work on coordination on my left side.  I’m already able to do some things that I wasn’t able to do when I was first tested.

The hoodie that I wanted on yesterday’s post, well the hubby said to go ahead and order it.

With so much going on right now, doctors, weddings, meetings and phone calls with not so great news, I’m need of just a billions spoons.

I’m asking for some extra prayers or positive thought for tomorrow.

Side Effect? Updated

Well was in bed really early yesterday with a migraine.  I don’t know if it was because of the increased brain activity via the exercises but it knocked me on my butt.  If you’ve ever had a migraine you’d know there is much else but lay in a dark room

and rest.  You hope that it goes away in a timely fashion.  When you wake up you have a hangover type feeling and it’s like the migraine is lingering saying, “I’m coming back to you!”

I take a pain medication, an anti-nauseant and sleep on ice pack on the back of me neck.  I have to put ear plugs in to block out any loud sounds.

I know I hadn’t eaten or drank anything on Monday to bring this on so I’m going to guess it’s the increased brain activity.  I will ask my Dr. about it today when I see him.

Woken up this morning by a phone call from a man pretending to be from my credit card company saying I transferred almost $500 to India.  I hung up and called the company on my own. I’m so frustrated with scams and the stupid automated “you won a cruise…hotel stay…etc”update
