Ethically Sourced From Happy Bees
Every good bee keeper knows that the secret to amazing bee products is having happy bees. Our Queen Bees do not have their wings clipped and pollen is only trapped when there is a surplus to the requirements of the hive (hence why we sometimes run out of stock for months). Our bees are continually moved to new food sources in order to keep their diet varied and their health is checked regularly. Taste the difference!

There is plenty of research available to indicate that Bee Pollen has some incredible benefits for fighting illness and bacteria.
One such study was conducted by Dr. Peter Hernuss (University of Vienna) where the participants were 25 women who had inoperable uterine cancer and thus were treated with chemotherapy. Some of the women were given Bee Pollen with their meals whilst the rest were given a placebo. The women who received the Bee Pollen had less nausea, increased antibody production, increased hemoglobin (red blood cells) and less hair loss.
