Our Pollen Tonic is made with Bee Bread

Inside the beehive, honeybees pack the pollen that they've harvested from flowers into cells. They add a small amount of honey, which contains enzymes from their saliva. The natural yeasts in the pollen and the enzymes in the honey cause the pollen to ferment, which helps the pollen become easier to digest and the nutrients more bioavailable.

The honeybees know how to use fermentation for their health!! How cool is that?

Once the pollen has transformed into Bee Bread, the honeybees feed it to their developing young, or brood. The brood grow very quickly and need to consume a large amount of protein, so this fermented bee pollen or Bee Bread is their primary diet.

Bee Bread for Human Consumption

There's some great research showing that fermented bee pollen also has excellent healing benefits for human health. According to this pubmed article (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC8868279/) bee bread is filled with bioactive compounds and has antioxidant, antifungal, antibacterial, and antitumoral activities.
