What's the Buzz About?

Bees are tiny creatures capable of feeding the entire planet. How does this magic occur? With the help of pollination: the act of transferring pollen grains from the male anther of a flower to the female stigma. Plants then produce baby plants for the next generation, thanks to bees.
A plethora of fruits are produced with the help of bees, as well as vegetables and beans. A wholesome vegetarian meal is provided to you with the pollination of bees. These tiny creatures fly great lengths to find their treasured pollen, as far as seven miles. These plants could be on the property of farms that use pesticides and miscellaneous other chemicals. Those chemicals are carried into their hives and are fused into the honey we are eating.
Beekeeper’s Naturals keep their happy bees far, far away from harmful chemicals. These bees are free to roam in the Canadian countryside and don’t come into contact with any pesticides. Canada has stricter regulations concerning pesticides than America and the bees are kept a further distance away from farms containing plants with pesticides and GMOs. The honey is tested for pesticides vigorously to protect the bees and the customers. Beekeeper’s Naturals have a slogan representing their passion for testing: naturally sourced, obsessively tested. These authentic honeys are also gluten-free, paleo, non-GMO, contain raw sugar and are straight from the hive.
The pure honey adds flavor to tea or can be added into smoothies for a sweeter treat. I personally enjoy snacking on Beekeeper’s Naturals honey simply on a spoon. There’s reason why we love honey so much. Honey is filled to the brim with vitamins and nutrients essential for our body. Use honey in facials for it’s anti-fungal and antibacterial properties. Smear honey on a burn for a relief and no future scarring. If you’re prone to sickness, honey helps boost the immune system. It boosts athletic performance and shortens recovery time after workouts. Another beneficial bee product is propolis. This resin made from botanical materials is created to protect the hive. Harsh weather conditions are deflected and intruders are mummified. For humans, propolis kills bacteria and cancer cells. It also lowers blood pressure! Bee stronger with a daily dose of Honey or propolis.
A vast variety of honey products are available on the Beekeeper’s Naturals website. Various raw honeys and a Cacao Superfood Honey for a chocoholics wildest dreams are ready to taste. The online shop features the B-Chill honey with an addition of hemp oil to relax after a stressful day. There is also a propolis spray to help with clogged or irritated throat troubles. Feeling in need of an extra energy kick? The B-lxr fires up memory power and is a cognitive enhancer. Try out Beekeeper’s Naturals products for a better life.
Save the bees!
