We all enjoy a little honey on our toast but though it may be tasty and sweet, it offers us relatively little in terms of nutrients. This new complex from Swanson offers a triple formula of healthy and bountiful Bee Pollen, Propolis and Royal Jelly. Everything nature's most industrious worker needs to keep itself strong and vital.
There are a lot of ancient myths surrounding the noble bee, and a lot of modern ones surrounding its honey. Unfortunately most of them are just baseless myths. The original captains of industry, it is fitting that these tiny workers are most commonly associated with a hard day's graft.
But it wasn't always that way, they once symbolised an ethereal link between this world and the next. Believed by Ancient Near East and Aegean cultures to be able to bridge the natural world with the afterlife. For this reason their honey, pollen and propolis were all used for a variety of remedial tonics.
To this day, we all eat honey for its flavour and its purported health benefits (of which there are sadly few). However that's not to say that there isn't benefit in it, you just need to look a little deeper.
The bee is still an emblem of rebirth and the renewal of nature and with good reason. By combining Bee Propolis, Pollen and Royal Jelly, Swanson have captured all the benefits inherent to the mighty bee.
So, away from honey, what are these other three components and how can they work for you?
Bee Propolis is actually nothing new to the world of health. It has been used for centuries, millennia even and its uses are seemingly numerous. When bees land on the sap from evergreen, needle leaved trees, they carry it away with them. By combining that sap with their own discharge and beeswax, they create a dark coloured, sticky gum which they use to build their hives. We call this Propolis. The ancient Greeks used it to treat abscesses and the Assyrians put it on their wounds to fight infection. That's because it is a fantastic immune system booster. To this day, it offers all of us a great way to bolster and protect our bodies from infection.
Royal Jelly is actually surprisingly prescriptive. Created by the Queen bee to feed her workers, this jelly is action packed full of protein. Larvae are fed an extended diet of Royal Jelly in order to become Queen Bees. It is so exclusive that it is the only thing the Queen Bee eats for her entire life. Rich in calories, protein, carbohydrate, and fatty acid content, it promotes longevity and protects the heart by reducing triglyceride and lipoprotein levels.
We are all familiar with Bee Pollen but did you know it's good for you too? It is 40% protein, of which around half are free amino acids - readily available for use by the human body. Truly, it is one of nature's most nourishing foods.
