Several years ago, the perfectly preserved body of a bee, encased in amber, was put on display in the Museum of Natural History in New York City. It was carbon-dated to be at least 80 million years old, but may be up to 135 million years old. The little bee, was probably caught in a glob of tree sap while out on a mission of gathering the sticky fluid for the production of propolis. Propolis is the antiseptic or antibiotic that bees produce to keep their colonies protected from invasion by disease. It is believed that they keep their settlements more sterile and free from bacteria than a modern hospital.

The oldest continuously living species on earth has not survived all extinct earth dwellers' by accident The honey-bee is the embodiment of efficiency and ingenuity. Efficiency, in having the most effective social and production-oriented society ever known, and ingenuity in having the most masterful research and development program ever conceived.

Woolly mammoths died out, dinosaurs disappeared, but the bee has outlasted them all, and continues to flourish today even stronger than ever. As mentioned, this is no accident. 

For over 80 million years the bee has been attacked by all variations of threats from viruses, fungi, bacteria and a host of little and large pests. Nothing has been able to interrupt the bee's survival plans. It just keeps on keeping on, providing us with the fruits of their labors, research and development.

Imagine, for a moment, one little section of the hive, designated for R & D. You open up a tiny little door, peek in to see thousands of busy bees, dressed in tiny white lab coats, going about the business of developing new anti-biotic like prescriptions that quickly act to neutralize the newest form of drug-resistant bacteria to attack their fellow bees. The formulae for these unique remedies are immediately communicated to the worker bees and synthesized into their food and germ-fighting products, to eliminate all threats to their existence.

Man and other animals, have harvested the products of the beehive, for their pleasure and very survival. The fact that bees have existed continuously for over 80 million years, tells us that whatever they are doing……works! There's a lesson in this experience, one that should be taken seriously. 

The products of the bee hive, BEE POLLEN, HONEY, PROPOLIS and ROYAL JELLY, may just be the most potent combination of nutrients ever developed since time began. For the sake of brevity, I won't get into descriptions and studies of these products, but you may want to do this in order to see what you may be missing. 

The most amazing little creature on this great earth of ours is the bee.

The "ultimate" survivor. What can WE learn?


Amino Acids

Amino Acids are extremely important to our health. There are 22 standard amino acids which the human body assimilates from food.
Of the 22 standard amino acids, 8 are termed essential amino acids - which cannot be synthesized from any compounds other than food – it is important that our diet provides us with natural replenishment of essential amino acids through foods and dietary supplements. Bee products such as royal jelly and bee pollen are high in amino acid content, which many associate with their benefits to our health*

The amount of amino acids required by the human body depends generally on our age, health and gender. The amino acids are listed as follows -

  • Isoleucine
  • Alanine
  • Leucine
  • Asparagine
  • Lysine
  • Aspartic Acid
  • Methionine
  • Cysteine
  • Phenylalanine
  • Glutamic Acid
  • Threonine
  • Glutamine
  • Tryptophan
  • Glycine
  • Valine
  • Proline
  • Selenocysteine
  • Serine
  • Tyrosine
  • Arginine
  • Histidine
  • Ornithine
  • Taurine

Many supplements are designed to provide one or more of the amino acids but there are questions raised as to their effectiveness when it comes to assimilation into the body.

Bee products are known to provide us with the essential amino acids that our body’s need, but it’s important to retain the ‘live’ state of the product and not to subject it to harmful processing. Royal Jelly in particular is high in amino acid content, as is bee pollen. Taking these products in combination form, using ingredients free from harmful processing, is a good way to supplement our regular diet and to deliver the essential amino acids that our body’s need to function healthily.
