While honey offers many health benefits – this sugar alternative provides antibacterial, anti-fungal, and antioxidant properties – honey is not the only substance bees make.

Bees also produce some of the most nutrient-dense superfoods available from nature, including royal jelly, bee pollen and propolis, each of which offers a wide range of vitamins, minerals and enzymes that are believed to improve health and well-being.

Bee Products NZ: Bee Pollen, Propolis & Royal Jelly

Royal jelly, produced as food for the all-important queen bee, has been shown in studies to help support a healthy immune system. It may also help improve brain health in patients with dementia (the antioxidants in royal jelly are believed to help protect the fatty acids in brain tissue from free radical damage) and could erase signs of aging by enhancing the production of the essential skin protein collagen, which declines over time.

Propolis has been used for centuries as a medicinal due to its wide range of active compounds, including caffeic acid phenethyl ester, which has been linked to suppressed inflammation responses, improved blood pressure regulation and a stronger athletic performance in extreme heat.

Bee pollen comes close to being a perfect food, as it features most of the nutrients the human body requires to function, including higher levels of protein than any animal source. Bee pollen has been shown in studies to help support a healthy immune system, protect against signs of aging associated with free radical activity and reduced inflammation.

At New Zealand Health Food Company, we have sourced some of the best bee products available on the market from top suppliers and producers, ensuring that the nutritional benefits of each product we sell are perfectly preserved.
