Bee Pollen Energy Shot

A great gift from Mother Nature, the bee pollen energy shot is gaining notice and respect in a world where synthetic, canned energy drinks are the norm. A great many of us would like more energy -- I know I would! Whether before a workout, an important meeting, a performance, a long workday, or simply to give the weekend a kickstart, countless people are now looking for more energy, and so it follows as no surprise that energy drinks are more popular than ever. However, many of these energy drinks are also loaded with synthetic sweeteners, flavors, and other artificial ingredients that are harmful to the body and mind. The bee pollen energy shot is exactly the opposite of this -- an all-natural energy shot, loaded with two incredible, healthy, energy-creating superfoods: bee pollen and maca root.

Bee pollen is the main source of food for a hive, and has been shown to be extremely nutrient-dense, as well as having antioxidant properties. Bee pollen contains trace amounts of minerals and vitamins (including around 59 trace minerals, all in an extremely bioavailable form) and is very high in protein and carbohydrates; it can help enhance energy, memory and performance, and is one of the oldest dietary supplements known to man. Hippocrates, the ancient Greek physician who is often referred to as the father of modern medicine, prescribed bee pollen because of its health-enhancing qualities. Both the early Egyptians and the ancient Chinese believed it was a rejuvenator and a medicine. James Higgins, of the American Apitherapy Society, said, "Bee Pollen is used by almost every Olympic athlete in the world.” It is sometimes called the "Fountain of Youth,” and "Ambrosia,” the mythical food eaten by the Greek and Roman gods. In fact, during the 20th century, the Russians realized that an unusual proportion of their centenarians were beekeepers -- whose diets consisted of large amounts of “scrap” honey, the honey found at the bottom of beehives, which is extremely saturated with pollen. And now, this legendary superfood has been combined with another incredible plant to make possible the bee pollen energy shot.

The second component of the bee pollen energy shot is a venerated superfood known as maca root. Legend has it that this root was the source of the incredible fighting prowess -- and virility -- of the soldiers of the ancient Incan empire. Until the late 1980s, maca has only been cultivated in a limited area around Lake Junin, in Central Peru. It is now being cultivated more widely, and with good reason -- I’m sure you’ll be as astonished as I was the first time I read of this incredible plant’s health benefits. Once so revered that it was used as a payment to Spanish royalty, maca has been scientifically proven to have a high nutrient content, and to enhance energy and stamina, as well as acting as an aphrodisiac*. Rich in calcium and potassium, maca also contains trace amounts of iron, iodine, copper, manganese, and zinc, as well as 19 amino acids. It also contains selenium and polysaccharides. Maca root is now becoming a staple in health food stores, and its smooth, nutty taste means it can be easily blended in everything from granola to raw smoothies.

But the benefits of this plant go far beyond its impressive nutrient profile. For today’s men, who are increasingly conscious of prostate health, maca has been shown in clinical trials to support healthy sexual and semen function*.

Our bee pollen energy shot exemplifies the "nutrients versus stimulants" philosophy: unlike caffeine and other stimulants that grant a brief surge in energy followed by a crash, nutrient-packed superfoods such as bee pollen and maca root can provide energy that lasts. Energy drinks full of caffeine and refined sugars trigger an immediate energy rush by elevating blood sugar and suppressing fatigue, but this is soon followed by a "crash" that can leave the user even more tired than before.

In contrast, nutrient-based energizers such as bee pollen and maca root provide the body's cells with vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and polysaccarides--the basis for real, sustained energy that can last for hours and won't leave you feeling fatigued all over again. After all, fatigue is an indication that your body needs more nutrients, and stimulants do nothing more than mask that underlying need.

Now, I’m sure you’re wondering, what of the efficacy of the bee pollen energy shot itself? I can tell you from personal experience that the bee pollen energy shot is highly effective (and it should also be mentioned that it tastes great!). It is a convenient, portable, delicious, and perhaps most importantly, all-natural source of sustained, even energy. That crash you experience when using highly-caffeinated energy drinks loaded with high-fructose corn syrup? Nowhere to be found with bee pollen energy shots! And let’s not forget how cost-effective the bee pollen energy shot is -- coming out to less than 90 cents per shot, it finishes way ahead of those canned energy drinks, which are usually $2 per serving, at least.

So there we have it -- two incredible, all-natural, nutrient-and-energy-filled substances, combined into one delicious, effective energy shot. If you want convenient access to more sustained, healthy energy (and most of us do!), you no longer have to run to the gas station for a canned, overpriced drink loaded with refined sugars and artificial ingredients. The bee pollen energy shot offers you all of the energy of the canned stuff, but derived from the superfood combination of maca root and bee pollen -- and at half the price. With an option like this, canned, synthetic energy drinks are a thing of the past. But, as LeVar Burton said on Reading Rainbow, don’t take my word for it -- give the bee pollen energy shot a try for yourself!
