Using Local Hive Products?

Hi Angela,

I am new to "hive" products, but it is my understanding that it is better to use honey/pollen from local sources in order to increase effectiveness in reliving allergy symptoms. Does this advice hold true for the other products such as Royal Jelly and Propolis? I live in New Jersey and recently purchased bee pollen from a local vendor at my farmer's market. I don't think they sell the extensive products that you do.

Also, is it necessary/recommended to take all of these different products all together all the time?

Thanks so much for your time! I'm glad I found your website.

Hi Susan,
Great questions and glad you found me! Local honey and pollen is recommended in cases of allergies. The idea being that being exposed to local pollens through the raw honey and bee pollen will help immunize so to speak from the local pollens in the environment. And this works very well. Now, if you are not treating allergies then using local honey or pollen isn't a concern for you and your key concern is getting a quality product that you trust. With regards to royal jelly or the other products of the hive, there is no evidence that I am aware of that suggests using local is important, outside of the 'green' benefits of shopping local.

And no - it is not necessary to take all of the products together all of the time. Some people do but many just use one or two. Its really up to you!
