Power Foods from the Humble Hive
What if there was a pill that could give your body all the nutrients it needs, protect you from disease, fight infection, give you energy, speed the healing process, and slow the ageing process?
If this sounds too good to be true, it is! Science has tried, but simply cannot manufacture a pill like this.
Thankfully, Mother Nature has!
While there may not be a single pill, the Bee Hive is a single source of four amazing Power Foods with astounding health benefits.
Since earliest civilization, Bee Hive products such as Royal Jelly, Propolis, Bee Pollen and Honey have been used for their nourishing, healing, protective and rejuvenating qualities.
Scientific reasoning for the incredible health benefits of bee hive power foods lays in their composition. Royal Jelly, Propolis, Bee Pollen and Honey are each:
- Naturally high in B group vitamins.
- Possess antibacterial, antiviral and antibiotic properties.
- Are rich in other vitamins including A, C and E
- Include trace elements, amino acids and vital minerals.
Each of these magical bee hive products also contains its own combination of compounds, minerals, proteins, lipids, hormones and enzymes with specific health benefits. Below is an overview of the unique nature of Royal Jelly, Propolis, Bee Pollen and Honey and how they can be used to optimize your health.
