Api-Nuggetz - Super Food from Super Bees

"Super Food from Super Bees!"

Bee Healthy Farms launched an exciting new product called Api-Nuggetz. Harvested from wild honey bees (Apis Dorsata), this aromatic 'bread' has a naturally occurring honeycomb shape. Collecting wildflower pollen, honey bees add honey and nectar, then store it with a thin coating of propolis and wax.

Nutritionally-speaking, it has all the vitamins, minerals and amino acids of fresh pollen. Yet, it also has naturally-occurring enzymes, added by the honey bees, which causes it to slowly ferment. This produces numerous healthy lactic-acid bacteria, known to be an important aspect for a healthy digestive system. In fact, it has a wide range of medicinal applications, especially in cases of disturbed metabolism, digestive disorders and allergies (Kaal 1991). See the tables below for a complete analysis.

Composition:
Bee bread contains practically all the essential amino acids for humans - (phenylalanine, leucine, valine, isoleucine, arginine, histidine, lysine, methionine, proline, threonine, tryptophan), vitamins - (A, B1, B2, B3, B6, C, E, biotin, folic acid, rutin) and minerals - (calcium, iron, potassium, phosphorus, sodium). The major components of pollen are proteins, amino acid, lipids (fats, oils or their derivatives) and sugars. Enzymes (proteins) are also present but some, like glucose oxidase, have been added by the bees. This enzyme is therefore more abundant in bee bread than in fresh pollen pellets. 

Bee bread also has higher nutritional value than pollen mainly because pollen loses much of its nutritional value due to improper processing and storage. Best of all, bee bread does not lose any nutritional value, due to the fermentation process performed by the honey bees. In fact, bee bread can be kept up to 2 years without any nutritional loss. Laboratory analysis confirms no trace of human manipulation and one lactic acid bacteria - Lactococcus.

Recommendations:
Begin by consuming 4-8 nuggets, 2-3 times a day. After a period of 2 days, you can increase consumption to larger quantities as desired (a teaspoon or more). However, if one is allergic to honey or pollen, the dosage should be reduced to one nugget, once a day for a period of 3 weeks. This will allow the body to acclimate itself to bee bread. At which point, one can increase the frequency of the dosage to twice per day, slowly increasing consumption. Best if stored in refrigeration.



Customer Feedback:

"I think its an AWESOME way to get many of the benefits that bees provide us. When I have anyone interested in such a product I will be sure to send them to your website. This is a very natural way to be able to consume bee products...to just eat it and not have to swallow a pill or capsule. As I said before, the taste was exceptional. Thank you for the opportunity to try them.

"The properties of the product are excellent. I have experience on bee bread as I consume and also sell for long time, but this is something else. What makes me impressed is that each piece of it has distinct taste of the flower/plant the bees use to collect. Congratulations again for giving me the opportunity to access such a nice product."

Healthy Lactic Acid Bacteria in Wild Honey Bees Can Fight Bacterial Infections
PLoS One, March 15, 2012

The stomachs of wild honey bees are full of healthy lactic acid bacteria that can fight bacterial infections in both bees and humans. A collaboration between researchers at three universities in Sweden - Lund University, the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences and Karolinska Institutet - has produced findings that could be a step towards solving the problems of both bee deaths and antibiotic resistance...

Today, many people eat healthy lactic acid bacteria that are added to foods such as yogurt. "In our previous studies, we have looked at honey bees in Sweden. What we have now found from our international studies is that, historically, people of all cultures have consumed the world's greatest natural blend of healthy bacteria in the form of honey", says Alejandra Vasquez, a researcher at Lund University.

In wild and fresh honey, which honey hunters collect from bees' nests in high cliffs and trees, there are billions of healthy lactic acid bacteria of 13 different types. This is in comparison with the 1-3 different types found in commercial probiotic products, she explains...

"As humans have learnt to use honey to treat sore throats, colds and wounds, our hypothesis is that the healthy bee bacteria can also kill harmful disease bacteria in humans. We have preliminary, unpublished results which show that this could be a new tool to complement or even replace antibiotics", says Alejandra Vasquez…
