More Incredible Bee Products III

By June 14, 2022No Comments

Yes, There Are Two More: Royal Jelly and Propolis the Final Two of the Bee Products incredible quartet.

If you know anything about these two vital parts of the quartet of powerhouse nutrients of honey, you are rare, and I bet what I am about to tell you will blow you away.  If Honey and Pollen were Luciano Pavarotti and Enrico Caruso, then Royal Jelly and Propolis are Andrea Bocelli and Mario Lanza. So now let’s talk about Royal Jelly. It is truly as fantastic as honey and pollen.

What is it?

It is pollen and honey, synthesized, made, in the bodies of a special group of young nurse bees, and is the most magical of the superfoods in the world. And the least understood. It is a thick, milky substance secreted by certain glands in the bees, and here is something that I didn’t know and a fact that I still find amazing.  A certain bee larva is selected (I don’t know the selection criteria, but bees seem to know) and it feeds exclusively on royal jelly and becomes queen. And that is the sole determining factor of her being a queen as opposed to being a normal ordinary bee. Her diet is simply and exclusively Royal Jelly and she becomes queen by that factor alone. She is fed on Royal Jelly for the remainder of her life while the worker bees feed on honey and pollen. Her life span is usually 4 to 5 years, whereas the worker bee lives only 3 months. And on top of that, she is the mother of a quarter-million bees – over 2000 eggs in a single day, a total of more than twice her own body weight. This data comes from the article, “Fresh Royal Jelly: by Y.S. Royal Jelly and Honey Farm, www.yehwehaliveandwell.com. Abstracted from “Superfoods by David Wolfe.”

 

The Fountain of Youth and Beauty

        

Throughout history, Royal Jelly has been considered “The Fountain of Youth and Beauty in many cultures in the world. It rejuvenates and regenerates the body, inhibiting the aging process.  Also, it helps to maintain a high youthful skin tone, sexual vitality, alleviates arthritis, and acts as an antidepressant.  There is another long list of other significant health benefits.

 

It is an amazing energy machine with a stimulating effect comparable to caffeine with no negative side effects. Containing B5 and other B vitamins, plus amino acids, potassium magnesium, calcium, and zinc, it is a powerful rejuvenator. It contains as much as 50% protein, 20% carbs, and 14% fat, enables one to think clearly, improves eyesight and memory as well as assists in treating heart disease. In tests by the American Association for Cancer Research, Inc., it was proven unequivocally to inhibit the development of cancer in mice. Now that is amazing.

 

Finally, it is still a mystery although many tests and investigations have been run. Scientists have not yet been able to synthesize or fully analyze royal jelly.

        

Propolis, Our Fourth Tenor, Mario Lanza

 

There is a huge propensity of a hot beehive to disease, but over millions of years of beevolution (bee evolution) they learned how to maintain a healthy hive through the use of propolis. Bees gathered resins from tree buds and bark, or from certain citrus fruits. These are exuded by trees to prevent disease and heal and repair the damage. These resins are known as Propolis and contain powerful bioflavonoids.  There are at least 4,000 different bioflavonoids and they exist in every living organism all around us. Bioflavonoids are polyphenolic* organic compounds that are sometimes referred to as flavonoids– they are some of the most versatile molecules found in a plant’s biochemistry. * Polyphenols are compounds found in plants, including flavonoids and phenolic acid, that greatly benefit the human body and help fight disease.

I am not going further into this complex biochemistry but will say that the Bees evolved a method of sanitizing and varnishing the cells of the honeycomb and protecting them against bacteria and other invasive damaging elements. Humans collect it to use as a natural, organic antibacterial, antifungal, and antibiotic source. It was called Myrrh in ancient times and prized for its medicinal properties. It is an effective wound healer when applied topically. It has been used also to treat a wide variety of maladies stretching from arthritis to asthma.

All Four Tenors Sing Beautiful Harmony from the Melodies composed in a beehive.

Yes, the delights of sweet honey sings a variety of delicious healing melodies for us humans who have forever been fans of their music. I know from seeing recent ads that honey products are being synthesized to treat skin conditions and many other problems, so you will be seeing more products emerge with the increased demand for organic products.  I like it in a peanut butter sandwich with a glass of cold milk.
