Bee Supplements For Better Health
Bee pollen is often referred to as nature's most complete food. Human
consumption of bee pollen is praised in the Bible, other religious books, and
ancient Chinese and Egyptian texts. Bee pollen rejuvenates your body, stimulates
organs and glands, enhances vitality, and brings about a longer life span. Bee
pollen's ability to consistently and noticeably increase energy levels makes it
a favorite substance among many world class athletes and those interested in
sustaining and enhancing quality performance.
Bee propolis, often called Nature’s penicillin, has historically been used to
treat TB, ulcers, mitosis, colitis and to boost immunity. Bee propolis has been
shown to destroy bacteria, viruses, fungus and even penicillin-resistant
bacteria (staphylococcus). It contains bioflavonoids, one of which (galangin) is
a natural antibiotic. As well, Bee propolis boosts immune functioning,
specifically by increasing the activity of phagocytes (killer cells). Bee
Propolis also inhibits prostaglandin production, thereby stopping inflammation.
Bee Propolis is a resin collected from plants by bees and used in the
construction of hives. Bees adopted sterilization habits long before humans. The
most sterile place in nature is the bee hive. Propolis is the natural substance
responsible for neutralizing any bacteria, fungi or virus which enters the hive.
One of the most powerful foods found in nature, Propolis is a highly complex
mixture of waxes, resins, balsams, oils and a small amount of pollen.
Bee Propolis is a waxy substance collected by honey bees which contains
phytotonizides. Phytotonizides are believed to contain immunity factors, which
when used internally, stimulates the body and gives it a natural resistance to
diseases (a natural antibiotic). Propolis is gathered from all around the world,
and proper temperature control will assure maximum freshness and consistency.
As a supplement, Bee Propolis is an excellent aid against bacterial infections.
Stimulates 'phagocytosis'; helps white blood cells to destroy bacteria. Good
results against inflammation of the mucous membranes of the mouth and the
throat, dry cough, halitosis, tonsillitis, ulcers, and acne. Stimulates immune
Royal Jelly is a substance of complex chemical structure produced by the young
nurse bees as larva food. Although it is not quite as well known as bee pollen,
royal jelly equals pollen in its salutary effects.
The young nurse bees make royal jelly, it is a secretion from glands on the tops
of their heads. For 2-3 days, royal jelly is the only food given to all young
larvae in their maturation process, while for the queen larvae, it is the
specific food for their whole life period. During the 3 days in which the worker
bee larvae are fed on royal jelly, they reach the maximum development; their
weight multiplies about 250 times. The queen (fed only on royal jelly for her
entire life) reaches maturity 5 days earlier than the worker bees; and, when she
is fully grown, her weight is double that of the working bee. The span of the
worker bee's life is about 35-40 days; while the queen lives 5-6 years and is
extremely prolific. She is fertilized once, and from that moment on can lay as
many as three thousand eggs a day during the season. As incredible as this may
seem, she can lay that many eggs for five years.
This rich concentrated food is not just useful for the bees. It contains
remarkable amounts of proteins, lipids, glucides, vitamins, hormones, enzymes,
mineral substances, and specific vital factors that act as biocatalysts in cell
regeneration processes within the human body.
