Honey is not the only product made by bees. Bee pollen, beeswax, propolis and royal jelly are just as important. Let’s start with bee pollen. Bee pollen is a male pollen collected from the blossoming flowers and mixed with bees’ digestive enzymes. After collecting the pollen, bee workers tightly pack it into the comb cells mixing it with honey and letting it ferment for a while. After a few weeks the great product called “bee bread” is made, and it’s a great source of protein for the bees. Real bee pollen or bee bread is a wonderful source of vitamins and minerals, it is full of antioxidants, bioflavonoids, predigested protein, and is probably the best plant source of vitamin B12. Bee pollen can helps strengthen the immune system, increase stamina and energy, encourage weight gain, and is a great dietary supplement. How to make sure you buy a real bee pollen and not the pollen just collected? Check the website of the company you buy the bee pollen from and make sure they sell their bee pollen from the beehive.

Interestingly enough, despite their super powers, honey and bee pollen are not royal enough to serve queen bee with. She is above this peasant food and demands only royal food. Queen bee comes from the same eggs as other bees; however, in order to become a queen she has to be no more than 3 days old and needs to be covered and fed a special substance called royal jelly. There is only one queen bee per hive and she becomes the queen only after the previous one died or left the beehive. Royal jelly is the only food queen bee will eat for the rest of her life. With this food she can live up to 5 years whereas the worker bees would live for 40 days or less. Playing such an important role in the life of the beehive, producing up to 2000 eggs per day during a season, she needs to be fed super special food. Adding such super-food into our diet can take care of multitude of problems.
Taking ¼ teaspoon of royal jelly will help restore weight lost after a long illness, strengthen weakened immune system, help with osteoporosis, improve brain function, increase longevity, give energy, help with fertility problems. Royal jelly is great for skin and hair as well. It can regenerate skin, increase collagen production, helps skin repair and slow down skin aging. It encourages hair growth and thickness. Applying thawed royal jelly on your face and hair as a mask once a week can be very beneficial. If you are allergic to honey, it’s not advisable to use any products made by bees. Royal jelly is high in estrogen and may stimulate growth of breast cancer cells. Can’t wait to tell you more about propolis and wax. Till next time.
