Integrated whole Body Wellness: How we found our formula

Integrated whole Body Wellness: How we found our formula

FIRST AND FOREMOST

We would like to call out one of the most important and underestimated facts about why we choose honey and bee pollen as our primary vehicles for our formula. 

HONEY IS ONE OF THE MOST BIO-AVAILABLE AND ROBUST NUTRIENT DELIVERY VEHICLES ONE CAN POSSIBLY TAKE. 

In the long human tradition of harvesting and consuming honey, it has been used not only as a nutrient but also as a medicine for various conditions.[2] Honey has incredible host of minerals, proteins, free amino acids, enzymes, vitamins and polyphenols. Honey packs a high absorption rate, positive effects on the metabolism, and beneficial biological activities on human health of honey compounds. In Ayurveda, the 5000 years old traditional medical system of India they use honey as a component to administering herbal medicinal preparations. They consider honey (Madhu) to have the quality referred to as Sukshma Marga Anusari (ability to permeate in micro-channels) Prabhava [2], and used as a medicinal substance delivery vehicle.

BEE POLLEN IS A POWER PACKED NAUTRAL SUPERFOOD 

We choose bee pollen for its impressive nutritional profile with more than 250 Active Substances. Bee pollen is loaded with a wide variety of antioxidants, among them flavonoids, carotenoids, quercetin, kaempferol and glutathione (5Trusted Source). Antioxidants protect your body against potentially harmful molecules called free radicals. Damage by free radicals is linked to chronic diseases such as cancer and type 2 diabetes [4]

Bee pollen is a valuable apitherapeutic product greatly appreciated by the natural medicine because of its potential medical and nutritional applications. It demonstrates a series of actions such as antifungal, antimicrobial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, hepatoprotective, anticancer immunostimulating, and local analgesic.[3]  Bee pollen is a raw material from which bees produce bee bread. They collect pollen from plant anthers, mix it with a small dose of the secretion from salivary glands or nectar, and place it in specific baskets (corbiculae) which are situated on the tibia of their hind legs. These are called pollen loads. The field bees collect and transport the bee pollen to the hive. [3]

DIVING INTO OUR ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE CABINET

Being that one of our founders is a certified clinical practitioner of Ayurveda, we combed through archives of Ayurvedic pharmacology and the therapeutic uses of medicinal plants, we found some of the most revered and beneficial plants, herbs and fruits nature has to offer. But we didn't stop there, we traversed the planet through time and text looking for the most revered botanicals our ancients used for wellness and longevity. From Ayurveda to TCM, from indigenous tribes to modern science, we wanted to understand not only how different cultures used plants, herbs, fruits & fungi to balance wellbeing and optimize health but also what are the scientific findings.
