Frequently Asked Questions
What is Bee-Power?
BEE-POWER is a perfect fusion of two nutritionally beneficial products – Premium Quality Eucalyptus Honey and organic Bee-Pollen known as “Superfood” – both known for their medicinal and healing qualities.
What is Bee-Pollen?
“Bee pollen is the most nutritionally rich of all beehive products, including honey and royal jelly. Bee pollen is approximately 25 per cent of complete protein, containing over 18 amino acids. It provides more than a dozen vitamins, plus 28 minerals, 11 enzymes or co-enzymes, 14 beneficial fatty acids, 11 carbohydrates and hormones (LINK). It also contains anti-oxidants that scavenge free radicals caused by exposure to radiation, chemical pollutants and other physical or emotional stressors.” (Good Medicine Magazine, August 2006).
Bee Pollen has been used for thousands of years for medicinal, healing and physical qualities and is one of nature’s most potent gifts.
What's Special about Bee-Power?
Simply the fusion of two of nature’s products into one makes it easier for the body to digest. Bee Pollen has been known to be a difficult product for some people to digest. This new patented process creates a formula that the body absorbs more easily, consistently providing high levels of nutrition at for the body’s well-being.
It's low in fat and sodium, high in Omege 3 and high in anti-oxidants, amino acids, vitamins and minerals. Taken orally, BEE-POWER comes in two jar sizes — 480g and 1kg — and is also available in single serve sachets and cherry juice. It's a food, not a tablet and can be spread on toast or cereal in the morning for a sustained energy boost throughout the day.
BEE-POWER is for everyone; mums, dads, the kids and grandparents who need a bit more energy. It's great for vegetarians, too, as it contains protein which usually is obtained from meat.
Can I take Bee-Power if I'm allergic to bee stings?
Over 40 studies have established that bee pollen in a safe product and allergic reactions are extremely rare. Bee Pollen does not necessarily adversely affect people with bee-sting allergies but if you are not sure, please consult a health practitioner.
When should I take Bee-Power?
Carry a sachet in your purse for those really busy days when you need a little more energy. Take at night for extra length stamina.
If you are a person who exercises on a regular basis, it is great to take before and after training to inject natural fuel into the body before and replenish the nutrients after.
Can I put
it my tea/coffee?
Bee-Power cannot be put in boiling water as it destroys the beneficial properties of Bee-Power.
Can I take
Bee-Power with medication?
Bee-Power can be taken safely with other medications or supplements.
How do I
Bee-Power can be taken straight out of the jar, on toast, cereal, in a smoothie or on fruit.
I store Bee-Power?
Bee-Power should be stored at room temperature. Do not store it in the refrigerator. Bee-Power has a long shelf life.
At what age
can I start taking Bee-Power?
Bee-Power as with any honey products should not be taken before the age of 2.
Can I put
it on cuts and abrasions?
Bee-Power can be put on cuts, abrasions, eczema and ulcers. Simply
rub on to the affected area. Honey is an ancient remedy for the
treatment of infected wounds, which has recently been 'rediscovered'
by the medical profession, particularly where conventional modern
therapeutic agents are failing. There are now many published reports
describing the effectiveness of honey in rapidly clearing infection
from wounds, with no adverse effects to slow the healing process;
there is also some evidence to suggest that honey may actively promote
healing. In laboratory studies, it has been shown to have an antimicrobial action against a broad range of bacteria and fungi.
Can I use
it as a facial?
Bee-Power can be used as a facial mask about once per week as part
of your natural skin care regime. First open the pores with a warm,
damp cloth, smooth Bee-Power on your face and neck, leave it on
for 15 to 30 minutes, and then rinse off with warm water. Splash
you face with cold water afterwards to close the pores. After you've
finished your Bee-Power beauty treatment, keep your skin looking
that way for hours with a shielding moisturising lotion. It will
lock in moisture, and keep chemicals and environmental pollutants
from irritating the skin. Honey is nourishing for the skin, pollen
acts as an exfoliant and also has rejuvenating properties.
