Honey, pollen, propolis and royal jelly
Honey is a delicious and healthy natural dessert. Honey is medicinal, so it should be eaten occasionally raw or as an addition to teas, drinks and meals. It has antibacterial and antiseptic action. It has a strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effect, so it is useful against the problems of high blood pressure (hypertension). Honey can lower the level of bad cholesterol in the blood, which increases the risk of creating deposits on the walls of the arteries, as a result of which the arteries narrow. This impedes blood flow. The heart consequently needs to be pumped harder to push blood through the narrow passages. This process burdens the work of the heart.
Pollen can be used in the form of supplements (because it contains large amounts of important minerals and vitamins, amino acids, essential fatty acids and other ingredients). This compensates for any deficiencies in the diet. This bee product stimulates various organic functions. It has a tonic effect on the cardiovascular system (because it improves blood flow through the blood vessels, alleviates the stiffness of the walls of arteries, veins and capillaries, strengthens the heart, making it more resistant to blood pressure oscillations). The amounts should not be overdone and the recommended doses should be adhered to.
Propolis – a natural material with antiseptic properties. Bees produce propolis to coat the hive. This protects the hive from potential attackers and bad weather. Propolis is used in purified form as a dietary supplement. It has a healing effect because it helps regulate blood pressure. Propolis is a common ingredient in mouthwashes because it increases the number of good bacteria in the mouth. Good bacteria are microorganisms that stimulate the production of nitrates, which lower blood pressure, when processing food. A higher proportion of good bacteria in the mouth also protects oral health. According to statistics, people with healthy teeth on average have a lower risk of developing cardiovascular diseases than people with diseased teeth and dental structures.
Bee jelly (Royal Jelly) is a milky white substance. Studies say that peptides from this substance can block angiotensin (a converting enzyme that affects the narrowing of blood vessels). This substance contributes to better functionality of blood vessels because it increases their elasticity. Care should be taken in dosing this organic product and disposing of it properly to maintain freshness and properties.
