Bee bread is truly an alchemical product produced in the bee hives, containing about 25% honey or nectar, 70% pollen, and bee saliva to create a uniquely fermented, delicious and tonic supplement that we use with great devotion for ourselves, family, friends and clients. Like a fine beer or wine, each regions bee breads has subtle notes of distinction, with the soil, the flowers and temperatures contributing to a unique product. We feel ours is the most delicious, nutritious and healing and we thank you for supporting our work to bring the finest healing superfoods and herbs from the Old World. Bee Bread is a truly transmuted superfood, infused with the medicinal nectar pollens of the high mountains of Northern Russia.It is good to take while fasting, having it after some warm water in the morning. Especially useful in integrating into the other fasting and detoxification protocols. It is good for cleansing the bowels, and the see accumulations of what is known in Ayurveda as ‘ama.’
We live in a perfect storm of havoc upon the gut microbiome and gut flora, causing negative feedback loops of stress, physiological responses and exacerbating digestive health. The food is largely grown in ‘dead’ soil, and sterilized to a degree that causes our bodies to absorb less nutrients. Fermented foods have always been an ancestral way to break down the accumulated toxins and aid in the digestion and processing of foods. There is no better dietary supplement for digestive issues than our special grade Altai Bee Bread in wild mountain forest honey. Bee bread is packed full of beneficial probiotics like Oenococcus, Paralactobacillus and Bifidobacterium, “a known probiotic genus whose activity in bee hives has also been correlated with lower counts of pathogenic microbes.” It has a great diversity of beneficial microbes, creating a gut symbiosis, as it does in the bee hive itself. The fermentation functions as prebiotic, which breaks amino acids, starches, simple sugars and vitamins for easier bio-absorption.
There are many sources of bee bread out there but we feel we have located the most potent, bioactive and powerful from the pristine North of Russia. Many are selling their product mixed with honey at a ratio of 90 percent honey and 10 percent bee bread. Our is 60% bee bread and 40 % percent honey, giving you the maximum level of this precious product for your money. Therefore you can take much lower supplemental doses after initial higher doses.
Bee bread is the fermented pollen from bee’s salivary gland secretions which is rich in minerals and proteins that are highly bioactive and ‘alive’ in terms of the bodies ability to absorb. It is a fermented product created in the comb cells, where the bee’s natural enzymes induce lactic acid fermentation which is highly prized for therapeutic effects. The uses in Russia are for the potassium deficiency that can cause a cluster of issues in the body from circulation to cognitive functions. Research has shown it is useful in benign tumours and aging, with digestive issues
This product is best to be absorbed in the mouth, it is good to hold in mouth like candy and let dissolve, and water mustn’t be taken for an hour after it for maximum gut benefits. You can take larger initial doses, but these can cause some detoxification effects as it is mildly laxative at high doses. We often advise to take a larger initial doses, a even teaspoon. Most of the other companies add, as we say, ten percent so they require larger doses of their product. Our is concentrated and packed in the jar with the bee bread.
