Bee products include bee pollen, propolis, honey and royal jelly.
Here’s 5 good reasons we think bee products should play a part in your everyday diet:
#1 – Bee products are high in amino acids
Amino acids play an important role in our health. There are, generally speaking, two kinds of amino acids – one which can be synthesized (created) by the body and one which must be supplied from external sources such as food and supplements. An ‘essential amino acid’ is the latter, and must be delivered via foods/supplements. Many foods are depleted nutritionally and we no longer get the level of nutrition from our diet that we did 10 or 20 years ago. Therefore it’s important to supplement food with quality nutrients, and none are finer than bee products.
#2 – Bee products are good for the immune system.
It’s no secret that the human immune system is what makes us tick and what keeps us healthy. But key nutrients must be supplied to the immune system to keep it functioning as it should. It just so happens that bee products contain these nutrients, not least of which are the essential amino acids mentioned in #1 above. So keep your immune system in tip top shape by introducing bee products to your diet – royal jelly, propolis and bee pollen are particularly high in amino acids, in that order.
#3 – Bee products can be all natural and considered ‘food’
It’s important to note the ‘can be’, here. Many of the processes used to create vitamin supplements are damaging to the nutrient content. It seems counter-intuitive that a manufacturer would produce a ‘health product’ and not create it in a way that makes it most beneficial to your health. But unfortunately, that’s how it works in our industry. And bee products are no exception. So you need to find a manufacturer who knows how to process the raw ingredients and retain their nutritional integrity.
If processed properly, bee products are the perfect supplementation to your regular diet, adding much needed vitamins, minerals and amino acids.
#4 – Bee products have been linked with a wide range of health benefits
More and more people today are aware of the importance of vitamins and minerals in our daily diets. So when we a see a substance packed with valuable nutrients it’s easy to understand how people assume it will be beneficial in a variety of ways. And it may well be the case so long as the product is of high quality and integrity.
Many products hitting the market come in from overseas, where their manufacture, surprisingly enough, is unregulated. Sure, the FDA check certain imported products, but it’s a retroactive check, performed only after a problem has occurred. So to be sure of getting the health benefits that you expect, buy your products from a USA manufacturer with a reputation for quality.
Quality bee products like bee pollen, royal jelly and propolis have been linked with benefits such as:
- weight loss
- more energy
- improved stamina
- immune system health
- cardiovascular health
- protection from viruses, colds and flu
- reproductive system health
and much more.
#5 – Bee products are inexpensive!
When you consider that you can take all 4 bee products for an entire month for less than $20, then it’s fair to say that cost need not stand in the way of your health! (Check out our Total Bee Plus and grab 6 bottles for around $19/month)
