Say hello to your natural bodyguard. Propolis is a protective substance bees make by collecting plant and tree resins. It is used to line the hive walls, where it functions as the immune system of the hive by protecting everyone inside from outside germs. There is good reason why bees are such big fans of the stuff. As nature’s defender, propolis contains over 300 powerful natural compounds renown for helping to support immunity and protecting wellbeing.
Propolis has a more medicinal taste than honey, but its powers are pretty sweet. This bee product is the original natural health aid — there’s actually evidence that humans have been using propolis to support their health since 300 B.C!

Bees do some serious lifting—they carry almost half their body weight back to the hive every day. That’s why they need to fuel up athlete-style with lots of rich protein, which they get from bee pollen.
Bee pollen is considered one of nature’s most nourishing foods. It’s packed full of vitamins and minerals, including energizing B vitamins, and contains nearly the full spectrum of essential nutrients. With more protein per gram than any animal product and lots of easily digestible free-forming amino acids, pollen is the ultimate superfood for the athlete or go-getter looking to recharge and fight fatigue.
Rich in enzymes*, minerals, and antioxidants, real raw honey is a powerful supporter of internal balance and overall wellness.
With natural antiviral properties and easy to digest carbohydrates, honey is incredibly soothing to the skin and nourishing to the digestive tract. It is even known to promote quality sleep and overall relaxation by supporting the production of serotonin and melatonin in the brain. Try enjoying a spoonful when you’re looking for some stress relief, some deep facial rejuvenation, a quality snooze, or a sweet treat.
(*Fun fact: raw honey is so high in enzymes that it’s the only food on the planet that never goes bad!)
Royal jelly is the exclusive food of the queen bee. Why is that such a big deal? Well, the queen bee lives about 40 times longer than the average worker bee, so we know there’s something pretty magical about her royal jelly diet!
That’s probably why the queen bee of Egypt, Cleopatra, used royal jelly on her skin regularly. When applied topically, royal jelly can actually have a regenerative effect, feeding skin cells the nutrients they need to heal, deeply moisturize, and glow.
But there are serious brain benefits, too. When consumed, this nutrient-dense elixir may support memory, mental acuity, and help protect against neural damage. It’s actually a source of acetylcholine—a neurotransmitter found in the brain, spinal cord, and throughout the nervous system, which helps to regulate memory and transmit nerve messages from cell to cell.
Whether you’re feeling foggy, looking to rejuvenate your glow, or need to get in the zone, royal jelly is your superfood royalty.
