Mānuka honey is a monofloral honey produced from the nectar of the mānuka tree, Leptospermum Scoparium. The word mānuka is the Māori name of the tree. Mānuka honey is produced by Apis mellifera bees foraging on the mānuka (Leptospermum scoparium). It grows uncultivated throughout New Zealand. Mānuka honey is markedly viscous. This property is due to the presence of colloid. Nectar from Mānuka produces a honey boasting unique medicinal and antibacterial qualities.
Bee pollen is a ball or pellet of field-gathered flower pollen packed by worker honeybees, and used as the primary food source for the hive. It consists of simple sugars, protein, minerals and vitamins, fatty acids, and a small percentage of other components.
Royal Jelly is a honey bee secretion that is used in the nutrition of larvae and adult queens. It is secreted from the glands in the hypopharynx of nurse bees, and fed to all larvae in the colony, regardless of sex or caste. During the process of creating new queens, the workers construct special queen cells. The larvae in these cells are fed with copious amounts of royal jelly. This type of feeding triggers the development of queen morphology, including the fully developed ovaries needed to lay eggs. Studies have suggested that royal jelly is likely to enhance collagen production, vasodilation, in reducing premenstrual syndrome effects, and as a postmenopausal treatment in humans, and against Alzheimer's disease in animals.
Propolis is a resinous mixture that honey bees produce by mixing saliva and beeswax with exudate gathered from tree buds, sap flows, or other botanical sources. It is used as a sealant for unwanted open spaces in the hive. Propolis is used for small gaps (approximately 6 millimetres (1⁄4 in) or less). When foraging, worker bees primarily harvest pollen and nectar, while also collecting water and plant resin necessary for the production of propolis.
