HONEY : Honey is a natural food made by the bee with nectar, pollen, and other substances.
It is considered nature’s most completely nourishing food as it contains nearly all nutrients required by humans. Proteins, free amino acids, vitamin B complex, and folic acids are some of the major nutrients found in honey.
BEE PROPOLIS : Honey Bees collect sticky resins that ooze from the buds of some trees and conifers. It is used in an ointment for healing wounds and cuts. Taking propolis daily helps in the prevention of constipation. When used in toothpaste it prevents mouth and gum disorders such as gum recession.
ROYAL JELLY : This is a blend of secretions from the salivary glands of the worker bee and contains a high concentration of vitamins B5, B6, and amino acids and is believed to be a potent antioxidant, a special rejuvenating substance that promotes tissue growth, muscle, and cell regeneration and it is believed to be anti-aging product.
POLLEN : Bee pollen is considered by many health experts to be a perfect food due to its high levels of nutrients, vitamins, protein, and amino acids.
VENOM : Venom is harvested by submitting bees to electric fields when they feel the electric shock, bees sting into a metal gauze behind which is a glass sheet.
This is left in place in the hive for a few hours to dry, after which the dried venom is crapped from the glass sheet. It is used in therapy against bee sting allergy. It is used in apitherapy, especially for the treatment of rheumatism and arthritis.
BEES BREAD : Bee Bread is actually the main source of food for most larvae and bees.
It is fed to all larvae except those that are selected to become queens; the queen larvae are fed royal jelly instead Bee bread is made of pollen mixed with bits of honey, bee wax, and bee’s digestive enzymes and is known to be useful in treating anemia, hepatitis, insomnia, stress, failing memory, cholesterol, and digestive tract disorder.
Products derived from bees, that is from the honey to the bee’s bread are so enormous that it makes perfect sense for an individual seeking health and financial freedom to embark on apiculture.
