Good Eats: Virgin Raw Bee Panacea

So I started taking this…

virgin-raw-bee-panacea-mh

…and WOW! I have to be honest.  I thought this was just gonna be a bunch of hype. I’m a pretty healthy gal. I eat pretty clean and work out regularly. And I’m not a fan of things that claim to cure all ills and make you taller/faster/smarter-than-your-average genius. I think, for the most part, that such things are marketing gimmicks (I recently found a bottle of ‘liquid gold’ that basically claimed to cure ‘EVERYTHING.’ Yeah… no). So I was skeptical when the lovely lady at LifeFoodOrganic (Hollywood. Get into it) offered me a sample.

First of all, it sort of tastes like chocolate. This is great for chocolate lovers. I am not one. But overall, it’s not unpleasant. It’s a combination of bee miracle parts, some stuff, some more stuff, and some other stuff.

What I do know is that it makes me feel like superhero. That scientific enough for ya? No? Okay. 🙂

Here are the claims from beepanacea.com

  2. Convenience- with our busy lives, we all struggle trying to find the time to make sure we eat a healthy, balanced diet. With Bee Panacea, everything you need is in one jar. It doesn’t get simpler.
  3. Nutrition You Can Feel- We aren’t kidding. When you eat a spoon of this stuff, in about 15 minutes suddenly: WHAM! CLARITY… some people feel a sense of euphoria or a surge in energy. A lot of people replace their coffee with Bee Panacea… it’s that good.
  4. Weight Loss- You know when you have those unstoppable cravings that pull you toward the refrigerator? Dieting is a constant battle for many of us. Bee Panacea is the weapon in your arsenal you’ve always dreamed of. Whenever you’re hungry, just take a tablespoon to kill your appetite for a couple hours. The body has a natural, instinctual intelligence. It immediately understands the nutritional quality of the Bee Panacea formula and suddenly your cravings disappear… and if you’re really starving, just have a second spoonful. It doesn’t matter because unlike most snack foods, Bee Panacea is ultra-healthy for you.

Okay, I can attest to some of that. You’re supposed to take this on an empty stomach first thing in the morning. I literally wake up, take a teaspoon, and then go on about the business of finishing waking up. I don’t take anything else until I’m about to head out the door for my run (supplements and what not) so that I don’t disturb the ‘process’ of the formula making it’s way through my bloodstream.

Here’s what I know: My runs have been faster, and my recovery time has been cut down to ZERO. I’m not kidding. Normally, the day after I work my legs… I’m pretty much a zombie without the help of some ‘boosters’ (green tea, kale drinks, the more-than-occasional protein bar). I’ve had none of those residual effects since taking the Panacea. I love it.

The only down side is the cost. $65 for 10oz. Now, that might seem like a lot. But at a teaspoon a morning, I’m going through this stuff in about 2 to 3 weeks, and that’s only if I’m being a little stingy with my doses. And I’m pretty sure hubby has been dipping into it. He’s a chocolate fiend… so it makes sense.

I’m not entirely sure about justifying the cost just yet. I’ve got about a quarter jar left (on my second jar), and I’m undecided about whether I’ll be  making the trek to get a third.

Wait…

Who am I kidding?

SMH.

Let me go count my pennies…
