I've taken herbs and vitamins for a long time, why should I switch over to Bee Products ?

Standard herbs and vitamins still occupy the lions share of the natural supplements market. This will be the case for the foreseeable future, as many large corporations have emerged, their foundations built around common herbs and vitamin supplements.

However, 'Bee products', surprisingly enough have been around for millions of years (some say as long as 80 million!) and have been used for many centuries to combat health problems and provide tonics for energy, stamina and longevity*

Could it be that Mother Nature created a very visible 'model for health', gave it wings, gave it a gentle sting to draw attention to itself, and set it upon us to deliver it's message?

Could it be that 80 million years later, we are only just starting to hear the message clearly?

So why do these products remain over-shadowed by more common 'plant' herbs and vitamins? The answer might be quite simple; they are difficult to produce for a 'mass-market'.

Consider the complexities and logistical problems of operating an apiary - the actual bee keeping and collecting process, the controls and regulations that ensure the end product is pure and free from contaminants, the manufacturing process of capturing and encapsulating all of the nutritional benefits intact. These are time consuming and complex tasks that ultimately limit  production. However this is changing, and slowly the output will be increased in line with the increase in demand.

So just how do Bee products compare with standard herbs and vitamins? -  Bee products provide us with a tremendous source of nutrition - the human body requires 22 basic elements including vitamins, amino acids, hormones and enzymes - Bee Pollen contains them all. Royal Jelly is remarkably rich in B Vitamins, contains 17 amino acids, and is often termed the 'miraculous rejuvenator'. Propolis contains 500 times more bioflavonoids than is found in oranges, and except for vitamin K contains all known vitamins. Honey contains important proteins, carbohydrates, hormones, organic acids - a powerhouse of essential vitamins and minerals.

There are many associated health benefits, so it is little surprise that people are switching over to bee products from common herbs...

More energy - more stamina - reduced feeling of stress - weight control - reduced anxiety - improved immune system and protection against viral infection - respiratory benefits - benefits to bones/joints, hair, skin nails - these are some of the benefits claimed by people who take bee products.

So what should you look for when buying Bee products? - there are many factors involved including -

Price -  Price should not compromise quality. Look for a manufacturer that does not spend large amounts of money on fancy packaging and high priced television ads - you pay for all of that! However, don't overlook the fact that many of the websites that are clearly not very professional in their delivery, may not have the systems in place to produce a high quality product.
What is right for me? - People new to Bee products ask us which of the four products they should take - royal jelly, pollen, propolis or honey? - It's the same answer for everyone - take all four products for the most complete range of nutritional benefit. (No we are not saying you should buy four bottles instead of one....'Total Bee Plus' contains all four bee products in an effective ratio, in one low cost capsule).

I've seen Bee Pollen on the Internet quite cheap, why?
- Beware of imported bee pollens that are unregulated and may contain contaminants. Some parts of Asia, particularly China, are renowned for exporting Pollen from non-regulated facilities, some of which are known to paint their beehives with lead based paints, which can propagate through to the product. Always look for domestic pollen that has been collected from different states in the USA, and from licensed and regulated bee keepers. (as ours is).

How is the product best manufactured, what is 'freeze-dried'? - Royal Jelly should be processed by removing the water content and leaving behind only the pure, nutritionally intact powder. This process is called 'lyophilizing' or 'freeze-drying' and is the only suitable way to process liquid royal jelly in our opinion. Some companies leave the water in the royal jelly, however it must then be treated with preservative to prevent it from going bad. Also, the water content is as high as 67%, encapsulated liquid royal jelly offers only around 150mg per capsule - way below an effective dosage. Removing the water via the 'freeze-drying' process does not remove any of the nutrients from the royal jelly.
