Three Honey Bee Products You Need to Try

April 25, 2019

Honey Bees

While they’re largely known for producing honey in general as well as painful stings when they’re threatened, honey bees are starting to become known for a few other things as well—royal jelly, bee pollen, and the New Zealand-based Manuka honey. Before you find yourself missing out, you need to try these products and reap all the wonderful benefits they offer!

Royal Jelly

As the concoction honey bees use to produce new queen bees, royal jelly is rich in various nutrients and is especially high in protein, which is probably why jars of it can be found in health food stores all over the place. Despite this, royal jelly is known for naturally having a bit of a bitter taste, so it’s wise to blend it with a small amount of raw, organic honey, hold it inside your mouth and beneath your tongue before simply letting it dissolve. If you want the nutrients in royal jelly without the bitter taste, you can also get royal jelly in powder, in gel form, or in capsules.

Bee Pollen

Being jam-packed with vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, and antioxidants as well as being 40 percent protein, it’s no wonder honey bees feed bee pollen to their hive’s babies. Bee pollen has various chemical compounds that are also used for prescription drugs, which is why it’s referred to as "apitherapeutic." Also, because it’s a food that comprises all the essential nutrients a human body needs to flourish, bee pollen is actually classified as medicine by the German Federal Board of Health.

Bee pollen also allegedly helps to relieve allergies while also containing various proteins, vitamins, minerals, fatty acids and lipids, carotenoids, bioflavonoids, and enzymes, making it a solid addition for care toward colds, burns, cuts, allergies, aging skin, eczema, and so forth.

Manuka Honey

Manuka honey has had a lot of press in the last few years, given it’s said to contain far more helpful properties than regular honey. Manuka honey is the result of the New Zealand-native Manuka bush, the pollen from which is used to make the aforementioned honey. It’s historically been used as an apparent treatment for digestive issues like acid reflux, stomach ulcers, and irritable bowel syndrome.

People have also used this honey for improving sleep, brightening skin, relieving eczema symptoms, boosting the immune system, preventing colds, and relieving allergy symptom. To get these supposed benefits, try to avoid using Manuka honey for hot beverages like coffee or tea, as the high temperatures can harm its enzymes. Instead, try taking a spoonful in yogurt, adding it to a smoothie, or drizzling it on some berries.
