Everyone knows how amazing honey bees are.

According to a new study from the University of Strathclyde, bees produce something which is antibiotic, anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal and anti-viral which can effectively fight a whole host of health problems, even MRSA. According to James Fearnley, author of Bee Propolis: Natural Healing from the Hive, human health could benefit immensely from the help of this product, known as propolis. The world expert from Whitby gave Yourwellness Magazine access to the best of his research on what he called “The Flying Pharmacy” of bees.

The article reported, “Everyone knows how amazing honey bees are. In the hive up to 60,000 bees live together without fighting, while performing a myriad of separate and unique tasks – foraging, heating, cooling, nursing, feeding, cleaning and dancing, all in perfect harmony. But how many people know that the beehive is also a flying pharmacy?”

James explained to Yourwellness Magazine that bees produce products, such as honey, propolis, pollen, venom, royal jelly and bee bread, which have been used as medicines for thousands of years. James produces the largest range of propolis-based products in the world. “At the moment we are focussing on products to treat oral health problems and are about to launch our new B-Gel,” he said. “Tests show that B Gel is more antibacterial, more anaesthetic and more bio adhesive (it sticks) than Bonjella and it is safe for children.”

James also detailed other health problems which propolis can be used for:

  •     Immune support
  •     Joint problems
  •     Respiratory problems
  •     Skin problems

Bee Propolis: Natural Healing from the Hive is available from major retailers.
