Most of us experience that mid-afternoon slump from time to time…
If you are using our Total Balance it is possible that you seldom experience this problem…but still, it can take a few months of using Total Balance to build up to that stage. Even so, if you are under a high level of stress or are short of rest, you may still need a natural energy ‘booster’…
We developed our Natural Energy product to meet these needs. It is designed to be taken on an empty stomach so it is perfect for taking mid-afternoon…when your eyelids suddenly become heavy and a nap is all you can think about.
A ‘get-up-and-go’ boost from nature…not an energy drink!
Some customers use it as their preferred ‘energy boost’ instead of the over-hyped energy drinks which contain excessive amounts of caffeine and other potentially harmful chemicals…not to mention loads of calories…Natural Energy may also help you avoid afternoon cravings for ‘junk-food’ that carry their own health perils!
How do we achieve this?
Natural Energy uses the potent health boosting components found in Bee Pollen…mixed with a special synergistic enzyme blend to help release the Bee Pollen’s energy-boosting properties.
There are other important nutrients which you can learn more about by clicking on the Ingredients tab. As soon as the Bee Pollen is harvested it is immediately packed and sealed to preserve its goodness. When we receive it at our production facility, we blend the enzymes into it using a 5 day process.
The Bee Pollen and enzymes are then blended with the other ingredients and prepared for encapsulation.
Pure Bee Pollen FACTS
We source our Bee Pollen from one of the most pristine areas of New Zealand:
- Borders one of the largest National Parks in the North West Corner of the South Island of New Zealand…
- No industries or factories…
- Prevailing winds are from the South West…
- Nothing between this area and Antarctica…besides the remote Southern Ocean…The air is so clean that most days you can see for 100 miles…leaving our Bee Pollen free from the air pollution and other contaminants found in so many other commercial brands…
You deserve the best Bee Pollen available and we’re proud to give it to you in our Natural Energy product.
- Regular consumption of Natural Energy aids your general health and well-being and can help:
- Provide sustained energy
- Naturally suppress ’junk food’ cravings
- Provide nutritional support
- Support your immune system
- Improve skin condition
- Mid-afternoon energy boost
Although we have listed the ingredient enzymes that we use to blend with the Bee Pollen Powder it is the blending methodology that we have developed that makes the combination so effective. Normally enzymes have to be enteric coated to be effective, but in this product they do their 'work' before the Bee Pollen is even encapsulated.
We put this product in a capsule as we want the 'mix' to be released in the stomach.

How do I use Natural Energy?
To see the best and most rapid results we suggest that you follow our 'recommended protocol’ suggestions.
Natural-Energy with bee pollen may be taken every day or intermittently as required at 3-6 capsules per day.
If your energy levels are very low and you are constantly tired then you could also focus on replenishing your basic nutrient levels as well, to give your organs what they need to become fully functional again. To do this, we recommend that you add a full daily dose of one of our Total Balance products to your protocol.
If it is viable for you, it is recommended that you add Xtend-Life Omega 3/DHA Fish Oil to your protocol as well. This will help achieve optimum results.
Can you tell me more about bee pollen?
Bee pollen is collected from the pollen of flowers, by worker bees. It also includes amounts of nectar and bee saliva. Once collected it goes through a strict cleansing process in order to ensure it is contaminant-free and pure.
The bee pollen in Natural Energy has been blended with specially chosen enzymes and minerals to provide a highly bio-available formula. To find out more please go to the Ingredients tab.
How does bee pollen help to increase energy and improve other bodily functions?
The known nutrient breakdown is approximately 35% protein, 55% carbohydrates, 2% fatty acids and 3% minerals and vitamins, including B-complex vitamins, vitamins A, C, D, and E, plus beta carotene, selenium, and lecithin.
There are still many as yet undiscovered components in bee pollen. As these are identified scientists may be able to explain more fully why bee pollen is so beneficial for us. Studies into the components of bee pollen continue.
Research has demonstrated that people who consume bee pollen report enhanced vitality, energy and endurance, and it may also help to help expel toxins.
Is it true that bee pollen is a ‘cure all’ anti-aging supplement?
No. Unfortunately there is no such thing as a ‘cure all’ supplement or ingredient.
However, one of the contributors to the aging process is the damage that free radicals can cause as they change the cells of the body, contributing to chronic degenerative conditions. Research does show that bee pollen is a very good anti-oxidant and therefore, as part of a full health regime, may help to protect cells from decaying and changing chemically.
I am allergic to pollen, will Natural Energy affect me?
Bee pollen has actually been shown to help, rather than exacerbate various allergic reactions, even where pollen allergies themselves are concerned. This is due to a type of ‘desensitisation’ process going on if bee pollen is taken in small doses by a susceptible person. Our formula may provide an advantage because it is from a pure source, powdered by non-chemical processes, and it includes enzymes that assist with the absorption, ingestion, and assimilation process, as well as enhancing the properties of the pure pollen itself.
Although we would advise caution for anyone known to have a pollen allergy, it may be possible for you to take this formula, beginning with small doses and careful monitoring.
Can people who are allergic to bees and bee stings take bee pollen and other bee products?
The allergy is to the venom, not to the bee or its pollen, so most people will be fine. Approximately 0.1% of the population will have a problem taking bee products, but the vast majority won’t. However, as with any new supplement, especially if you are known to have sensitivities, begin taking it gradually, and make sure that you are not seeing any negative reactions. If your reactions are known to be potentially severe it is advisable to consult with your physician.
Can Natural Energy aid weight management?
Natural Energy may prove a useful aid to weight management as the pure bee pollen it contains has a stimulating effect on metabolic processes, supporting fat metabolism and expenditure. Other nutrients included may also assist in reducing cravings for unhealthy foods.
What other conditions can bee pollen help with?
Bee Pollen contains many nutrients and may be helpful for athletic endurance, stress, immune system improvement, allergy-resistance, sexual health and general energy as part of an appropriate diet and supplement program. Please ask us for more individual help.
What else can I do to help myself?
Fatigue and reduced energy levels are common problems that may be symptoms of many different conditions and systemic malfunctions. To keep energy levels high it is important to ensure that your overall health is the best it can possibly be. This means exercise, even moderate exercise, along with a healthy and balanced diet and fluid intake.
