A Bee Blog! Part Two

At Native Harvest, our high quality products are not only delicious, but healthy too. Some benefits of our all natural raw honey include: relief of local allergy symptoms, good source of anti-oxidants, sore throat relief, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties, good source of phyto-nutrients, and digestive relief.

According to Dr. Axe, raw honey contains 22 amino acids, 27 minerals, and 5,000 enzymes. Vitamins in raw honey include: Vitamin B6, thiamin, riboflavin, pantothenic acid, and niacin. The minerals found in raw honey are: selenium, magnesium, iron, zinc, potassium, calcium, and phosphorous.

Honey is a natural sweetener that can be used for baking, cooking, or mixed with your favorite hot beverage. In Part One of our Bee Blog, we talked about pollinators. Honey Bees get a lot of attention because as their populations decline, people worry about losing the beneficial products that come from honey bees. Native bees and other pollinators deserve protection, too. Without them, we wouldn’t have the wonderful variety of fruits, vegetables, plant medicines, and flowers we enjoy today.

The Xerces Society has a variety of resources that will help you support and protect pollinators. To access the Xerces Society Pollinator Conservation Resource Center, visit http://xerces.org/pollinator-resource-center/ and click on your state. On this website you can access regional information about plant lists, habitat conservation guides, and more. There is also a link to access national resources including plant lists, conservation guides and factsheets, pesticides, information on native bee nests, bee identification and the US federal pollinator strategy and other policy related documents.


So if you love pollinators like we do…. sit down, enjoy a nice cup of coffee or herbal tea with Native Harvest honey, and read more about pollinators at http://xerces.org/.
