In a nutshell...

Honey is a true gift from nature to man. It is rich in vitamins, trace elements, and other nutrients and constitutes a fast source of energy for the human body.

Its raw materials are nectar, from which blossom honey is produced, and honeydew. Nectar is collected from flowers by bees, while honeydew is obtained from the excretions of plant parasites.
Honey's composition depends on many factors, such as:
  • The kind of plants from which nectar and honeydew are collected.
  • The bee race.
  • The nature of the soi.l
  • The state of the bees.
  • and many more...
The beekeepers themselves play a leading part in ensuring the quality of the honey. This is why, the production should always be carried out with care and respect toward nature and its premium products.

Honey
The Nectar of the Gods

It has been since antiquity that the rich, nutritional and therapeutically value of honey has been recognised.
  • 3.500 years ago, honey was reported in Egyptian papyruses as a therapeutical agent.
  • Hippocrates and Aristotle recommended honey for the healing of various diseases.
  • Nectar was considered to be the food of the Olympian Gods in Greek Mythology.
  • In the Indian Book of Life, honey and milk are thought to contribute to longevity.
  • Egyptians offered their gods honeycombs with honey as a dedication and atonement gift.

Pollen
A Shield for Good Health

Thanks to bees humans can enjoy products that are extremely beneficial for their body. Pollen is a natural food, extremely rich in proteins, vitamins, amino acids, hormones, enzymes and other essential nutrients, while it is widely used to prevent and combat various ailments.
Some of its properties are listed below:
  • It improves the appetite in case of body weakness, weight loss, poor metabolism or intestinal dysfunctions.
  • It promotes memory and intellectual capacity.
  • It enhances cardiac systole.
  • It boosts body defence against mild allergies.
  • It protects from cerebral haemorrhages thanks to its high vitamin R (rutin) content that increases the resistance of capillary vessels.
  • It reduces menstruation complaints.
  • It increases physical well-being, self-confidence and excites sexual desire.
  • It contributes to the prevention and treatment of prostate problems.
  • Due to cystine, an amino acid that it contains, pollen positively influences hair growth and colour.
  • It regulates basic body functions, such as the function of the thyroid gland and the ovaries.

It has been established that the most healthy and longest living humans on earth come from the Himalayas, Caucasus and Vilcabamba mountains in Ecuador, where pollen is an integral part of the population's daily diet.

The correct dose: You should always start consuming pollen in small doses, thus allowing your stomach to get accustomed. On the first week, a teaspoon of pollen on a daily basis suffices. Then, you can gradually build up to a table spoon. This diet should be continued non-stop for 4-6 months depending on the individual needs.
