Royal Jelly and Bee Pollen are Known to be superfoods because of their high and concentrated nutritional value.
I love superfoods, in small amount you get a nutritional packed multivitamin and mineral in its natural form!
After trying Royal Jelly and Bee Pollen for the first time
and feeling the powerful influences of these two superfoods,
I decided to ask my friend, Ana Maria from RawPotHealth to explain to me more about their uniqueness.
Raw Pot Health Brings to the UK organic Raw Bee Pollen and Royal Jelly from a small family-owned farm, located in green Transylvania, a region of Romania.
She wrote to me this information that I’m happy to share with you, my dear readers-
Research and history have shown the therapeutic and beautifying properties
of beehive foods:
Raw Bee Pollen, Royal Jelly and Honey to promote optimal health and longevity.

Being raw, Bee Pollen is a living superfood, naturally containing an array of enzymes, co-enzymes and microorganisms that make it a perfect tonic for the gastrointestinal health, liver function, immunity, cardiovascular, hormonal, nervous system health, weight management, just to name a few.

Royal Jelly is the most valuable product of the beehive, highly nourishing, this precious food has unique compounds, that are only found in royal jelly in nature.
It is the exclusive food of the queen bee and her larvae family.
Royal Jelly has a rejuvenating effect on all body functions,

supporting neurogenesis– the growth of new brain cells – by stimulating neural stem cells, neurotransmitters to enhance cognitive capacities;
May help protect against Alzheimer’s, memory fog, depression, anxiety, insomnia, chronic stress, SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder), hormonal imbalances, blood pressure, and blood glucose imbalances.
Royal jelly also supports immune function, enhances collagen production, and reduces diabetes risk.
How to use raw Royal Jelly?
Royal Jelly could be consumed in its whole, fresh state or mixed with raw Honey or raw Bee Pollen or simply water.
It’s traditionally held under the tongue to dissolve before swallowing to increase bioavailability.
Word of caution: DO NOT consume if allergic to any bee products
If new to raw Bee products start with the very little amount such as one to few granules of Pollen and traces amounts of Royal Jelly and then build up according to tolerance and age.
