Story at-a-glance -

  • Propolis and royal jelly have antimicrobial, antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties, and help maintain pluripotency of embryonic stem cells
  • Acetylcholine, a compound found in royal jelly, which bees use to signal growth of the hive, is a neurotransmitter necessary in brain health for memory and focus. It may also lower your risk for dementia
  • Insect pollinators, such as the honey bee, provide a vital function to sustaining life on Earth; without pollination the environment would collapse. However, the population of honeybees is dramatically dropping, with nearly 700 species in North America headed toward extinction
  • You may help support bee populations by planting bee friendly flowers in your yard, eliminating the use of toxic pesticides in your garden and lawn, and consider setting up a hive in your backyard

Bees provide a vital function to sustain life on Earth. Without their tireless service through the pollination of trees and crops, we would simply not be able to put food on the table. Through pollination, the simple transfer of grains of pollen from one plant to another, bees fertilize the flowers of crops and other plants, ensuring seed production.

Some plants rely on wind, others are self-pollinating, but most need the services of natural pollinators such as honey bees. In addition to providing benefit to the agricultural industry, they also pollinate wild plants and flowers, helping preserve natural forests and a wealth of flowering plants.
