Bzzzzzst! You’d bee silly not to consider this on your fertility journey.
It takes a very balanced, empowered and healthy human woman an average of 28 days to release an egg. A Queen bee can produce up to 2,000 eggs per DAY. That’s because she relies on something called Royal Jelly.
It is believed that the royal jelly helps the Queen Bee to balance out her hormones and improve her egg laying ability - so it’s no wonder the stuff has become a hugely popular supplement amongst women trying to conceive naturally.
Royal Jelly is not the only treasure a beehive can offer to our health and fertility. There are many ways bees and the treasures in their hive can boost our immunity, and keep us healthy in the colder months.
In a beehive, you'll also find propolis, a sticky resin that bees make by combining their saliva with beeswax and sap (or other materials) from tree buds. Propolis has been used since ancient times to heal wounds and fight infections. This is because propolis boasts over 300 beneficial compounds, many of them antioxidants. It has antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory properties.
The one gift that most of us know and use already is honey! Good quality honey is again rich in antioxidants, and offers many medicinal benefits, from wound healing to suppressing cough. But not all honey is created equal. That’s why I’m very selective about which products I recommend to my fertility patients.
I love Beekeeper's Naturals, who have harnessed everything bees have to offer us. Here are some of my favorite products you can use to support your immune system, fight off inflammation and keep your hormones in check:

Good sleep and quality relaxation are so important to your health… but they are usually the first things to take a hit when life gets crazy. (Let’s face it, we could all use an on-call self care support team once in a while.)

Being sick is not good for you or your fertility. Needing medicine is also not good for your body when you’re trying to support your reproductive system naturally.
