BEE KNOWLEDGE

What is Propolis?

PROPOLIS

Propolis, a natural bee product that gathers bees from plant stems, leaves and buds. It has strong antibacterial and antioxidant effects. It is used to kill germs in the hive and to protect the bee colony.
The main function of propolis for bees is to provide and maintain the antiseptic environment in the hive. Honeybees use propolis to protect larvae and themselves against microorganisms (viruses, bacteria, fungi).
Propolis is considered as a disinfectant source in the hive. Due to its high content of flavonoids and phenolic compounds, it has a high antioxidant effect.

ROYAL JELLY
What is Royal Jelly?

ROYAL JELLY

Royal Jelly is a nutritious food that is produced by bees. It is excreted from your hypopharyngeal glands and consists of pollen and honey.
The bees use royal jelly to feed their queen bee and their young. The young bees, which are fed with royal jelly, grow faster.
The queen bee, who only spends her whole life with royal jelly, is twice as tall as the working bee and even lays thousands of eggs every day.
While the average lifespan of a working bee is 45 days, the queen bee can live 5 to 7 years, which is the result of royal jelly, the only food for her.

What is Bee Pollen?

BEE POLLEN

Bee pollen is male spermatozoa, microscopic grains. The bees collect pollen from flowers and use it to feed larvae and worker bees that produce royal jelly.
As a major source of protein and vitamins, bee pollen plays an important role in the diet of bees. Bee pollen contains fats, carbohydrates, fiber, minerals, amino acids, phenolic compounds and vitamins.
