ROYAL JELLY , my personal favorite,considered a superfood ,contains a rich source of B vitamins. It also contains acetylcholine, a compund needed to transmit nerve messages from cell to cell. Too little of this compound makes one prone to Alzheimers. Royal Jelly is known to increase energy, prolong youthfulness, bolster the immune system and improve skin beauty. It has become one of the most sought after anti-ageing formulas especially good after facial surgery. I like to take it in raw honey form and made local. Y.S. Organic Bee Farms
Bee Pollen not only increases energy but rejuvenates the body reducing addictions and cravings, preventing infectious diseases, building new blood,stimulating various organs and glands. Bee Pollen contains a rich source of vitamins, minerals, proteins, amino acids and antioxidants.
