Let’s face it; there really is no shortage of natural energy miracle food products these days. In fact, it often seems as though a new product appears on the market every day, and of course, with each new product, comes a string of promises concerning purported health benefits, many of which are totally bogus.
Nevertheless, I am a great fan of natural remedies and various homeopathic solutions, so new products do tend to pique my interest. While I most certainly have not tried all of them, I have tried many, and in fact, I still use three on a daily basis. I take omega-3 fish oil supplements, I take New Zealand green lipped mussel supplements, and of course I have my daily fix of high quality bee pollen.
Who would not want to take bee pollen considering just how fantastic it is? Did you know that bee pollen is classified as being a complete food? The reason for this being that it contains each and every vitamin and mineral your body needs in order to stay alive. Theoretically, you could live on the stuff if you ate enough of it. It is perhaps the most nutrient-dense food ever discovered.
With a high carbohydrate count and a very low calorie count, bee pollen is an outstanding natural energy booster. It is also a good source of protein and omega-3 essential fatty acids. Interestingly enough, on a pound for pound basis, it contains way more protein than even the best quality beef, chicken, or pork.
Pollen collected from the hives of bees is also an outstanding source of trace minerals and enzymes. One of the most fascinating things about bee pollen is how quickly it enters the bloodstream. In clinical trials, it was found in the bloodstream, cerebral fluid and spinal fluid two hours after ingestion.
Another highly desirable quality is the fact that it is believed to be an ergogenic substance. What this means is that not only can it raise energy levels, but it can also help to fine tune the way State of Enlightenment the body uses energy. In other words, utilization of energy is maximized, meaning no energy goes to waste. It is clear to see why bee pollen is held in such high regard by many top athletes.
During one experiment, pollen was given to a number of pregnant rats in order to determine if it would have any effect on the fetuses. Survival rates were significantly higher between the offspring of the pollen fed rats, when compared to the offspring of the rats that had been fed a regular diet.
There are countless natural energy miracle food products on the market, but it is hard to imagine any of them coming close to bee pollen. Virtually every so-called miracle food gets analyzed in laboratories, and not a single one of them has come anywhere near the nutritional content of honey bee pollen.
Have you heard about coincidences that make you wonder in awe? Have you heard about the healing power of prayer that gives each one of us second chances to live? Some say there are no coincidences, but grace. And as St. Therese declares, “… the miracles of God here and now.”
We all have our own testimonies of God’s saving power, yet sometimes we just take them all for granted. We think all the answer to our questions is science, more knowledge, more power, or more money. We have to know God is the key. We have to know if we let God take part in our journey, all things will work out together for good for those who love and obey Him.
For example, when we are sick, we pray to God and ask for the intercession of Saints. Then, after some days, we get well. Yes, we have the medicines, but what if God will take the life? Aren’t these situations evident of miracles?
Once my youngest brother suffered a major heart attack and we all got troubled because doctors said he could have died showing us all the records (Paranaque Medical Center). The other patient in the next bed, younger than him died, but my brother lived. After two weeks, my brother got discharged with no defect of speech nor movement. Only he was advised to go back to the cardiologist for follow up check up, stress tests and maintenance medicines. In this situation, we prayed to the Saints. We asked the intercession of Saint Hannibal, Saint Therese and Mama Mary. When he left the house during that scenario I let him wear a scapular. We prayed should he live or not, it is God’s will. And he lived. Here is life’s second chances.
