Amino Acids
Amino acids are like bricks that make up proteins. They are the same for both animals and plants. In nature, 28 amino acids are known. In some sources of information, this number may also be smaller, depending on what is understood by the term "amino acid." The proteins in the human body are made up of 20 amino acids, 12 of which the body can synthesize itself: alanine, arginine, asparagine, aspartic acid, cysteine, glycine, glutamine, glutamic acid, histidine, proline, serine, taurine. And 8 so-called essential amino acids: valine, lysine, leucine, isoleucine, methionine, threonine, tryptophan, and phenylalanine are those that the body does not synthesize on its own; this can be done by the symbiotic gut microflora. However, if a person consumes a diet inappropriate for their species, pathogenic microflora dominates in the gut tract, which cannot synthesize essential amino acids, therefore they must be obtained through the diet. For children, this number is 10, because the bodies of children do not yet synthesize histidine and arginine, so they must be received through the diet. There are also 8 amino acids such as aspartic acid, carnitine, citrulline, dimethylglycine, glutamine, gamma-aminobutyric acid, ornithine, tyrosine, which by definition cannot really be counted as amino acids, yet they perform important functions. For example, ornithine is necessary for the functioning of the immune system, as well as for performing detoxification functions, participates in the regeneration of kidney cells. Aspartic acid plays an important role in metabolic processes, helps reduce fatigue. Gamma-aminobutyric acid is indispensable in metabolic processes in the brain. Each amino acid performs its function in the process of life.

If all necessary minerals (more than 65) are consumed in the diet in organic form, and the gut tract functions in an optimal regime, there should be no issues with amino acid and fatty acid deficiencies, only if there are parasites in the gut tract. Problems arise only when a person consumes a diet not intended by nature, and pathogenic microflora proliferates in the intestines, displacing symbiosis.

All amino acids are present in animal-derived proteins – meat, eggs, dairy products - in larger or smaller amounts, but not all amino acids may be present in each individual plant-derived food. Moreover, in plants, amino acid compounds are often enclosed in a fibrous shell, which complicates their enzymatic breakdown. Therefore, when relying solely on plant-derived products, it is very important to diversify their sources so that amino acids missing in one product can be compensated for with another product. It is necessary to know which amino acids are lacking in which product, especially attention should be paid to sulfur-containing amino acids such as cysteine and methionine. They are sensitive to heat treatment.

Bee bread contains all 28 amino acids in an easily accessible form. The main point is not to have all 28, because if some are missing, they will be synthesized in a normally functioning gut tract. The most important thing is to have all minerals, as they can only be obtained through the diet. The greater the diversity of flowers, the higher the probability that these minerals will be received. Therefore, it can be said that the greater the diversity of flowers, the more valuable the bee bread. The same is true for honey.


Essential Amino Acids
Although ideally all 28 amino acids are necessary for the normal functioning of the human body, there is a subset of amino acids whose deficiency initially will not be noticeable because the body will compensate for their insufficiency from internal reserves for a while. However, the deficiency of some amino acids soon becomes symptomatic. When planning a diet, attention should be paid to ensuring
the intake of the following amino acids:
Peripheral Nervous System
     Asparagine - stabilizes the functioning of the nervous system, the impulse conduction process in nerve fibers.

     Gamma-aminobutyric acid - acts as a neurotransmitter.

     Phenylalanine - memory processes and mood regulation.

     Tryptophan - serotonin neurotransmitter synthesis.

Blood Formation System
    Histidine – necessary for the formation of erythrocytes and leukocytes.

    Isoleucine – needed for hemoglobin synthesis.


Immune System
  ֍   Lysine – stimulates the immune system, increases the activity of the thymus gland, stimulates the production of T-lymphocytes.

  ֍   Aspartic acid - promotes immunoglobulin synthesis.

  ֍   Citrulline - immune system stimulator.

  ֍   Cysteine – antioxidant.

  ֍   Histidine - necessary for histamine synthesis, which is an important component in many immunological reactions.

  ֍   Lysine - a component of immunoglobulins (antibodies).

  ֍   Methionine - is a supplier of sulfur and a powerful antioxidant that deactivates free radicals.

  ֍   Ornithine - detoxifies and regenerates liver cells.

  ֍   Serine - maintains the immune system in a normal state.

  ֍   Threonine - promotes antibody production.


Bone - Muscle System
      Arginine - a metabolic component in muscle tissues.

      Cysteine - promotes muscle fiber formation.

      Glutamine – necessary for protein synthesis in muscle tissues.

      Glycine - slows down the degeneration process in muscle tissues, used in RNA and DNA synthesis.

      Isoleucine – promotes muscle mass recovery and increase.

      Leucine – protects muscle tissues, promotes bone regeneration.

      Lysine - is an essential amino acid that is part of all proteins and is necessary for bone formation, especially in children.

      Proline – promotes collagen production, strengthens connective tissues and cartilages.


Reproductive System
  Œ   Arginine – a component of male semen.

  Œ   Glycine – necessary for normal prostate function.

  Œ   Lysine – participates in protein synthesis.


Endocrine System
  ζ   Arginine - stimulates insulin production.

  ζ   Isoleucine - regulates blood sugar levels.

  ζ   Leucine – lowers blood sugar levels and stimulates the production of growth hormone.

  ζ   Tyrosine – improves the function of the adrenal gland, thyroid gland, and pituitary gland. When iodine is added to tyrosine, thyroid hormones are formed.


Circulatory System
     Lysine – lowers serum triglyceride levels.

     Methionine - helps process fats, preventing their deposition in the liver and on the walls of blood vessels.

     Proline – strengthens the heart muscle.

     Taurine – found in large amounts in the heart muscle, ensures potassium homeostasis, normalizes cholesterol levels.


Respiratory System
   Ψ   Cysteine – facilitates the breakdown of mucus in the airways.

   Ψ   Lysine – a component of antiviral antibodies.

The most effective way to ensure the body with amino acids is a balanced diet containing necessary minerals and a well-functioning gut tract.


Good Bacteria
The biological activity of pollen is not too long, about 3-4 months. However, bee bread maintains it much longer. It contains lysine, which promotes the absorption of calcium, which is one of the main neutralizers of the acidic internal environment, for normal biological processes to occur. Bee bread is one of the best naturally formed products that helps restore and maintain good bacteria or symbiotic microflora, which lives in our body and helps us stay brisk and healthy. Good bacteria live on the inner walls of the intestines and synthesize nutrients for absorption and assimilation in the body. They release natural antiseptics acidophilin and lactic acid. They help regulate the movement of food through the gut tract (improve peristalsis), produce B group vitamins, vitamin K, and folic acid.


DNA Damage Repair
As is known, radiation, toxins, electromagnetic radiation, stress can cause breaks in the DNA (Deoxyribo Nucleic Acid) spiral, which in turn can lead to genetic mutations. In pollen, bee bread, and royal jelly, a special reducing nuclease (DNA hydrolyzing enzyme) has been discovered. It has the ability to correct DNA spiral breaks or gene corrections without affecting cell proliferation. These products are particularly useful for pregnant women, as they reduce the risk of fetal pathologies and prevent DNA damage, simply put, they reduce the likelihood of congenital diseases. These products also have anti-cancer properties, therefore they can be used as a preventive measure.

It should be added that royal jelly is a biologically very active product, therefore it can be stored without losing its value only in a frozen form.

                                        Bee Bread

Bee bread is a naturally formed product with a vast diversity of biologically active substances for those who care about their health. It is the most complete natural product, with no analogs in the world. Bee bread contains about 240 biologically active substances necessary for the normal functioning of the human body. This number can vary depending on the diversity of plants in the bees' pastures and can reach up to 300. This is explained by the fact that bees visit very different flowers over a wide area from early spring to autumn and collect pollen from them, which concentrates a very large amount of biologically active substances. Each plant has its own medicinal effect, which is most pronounced during flowering and concentrates in the flowers.

Bee bread contains all 28 amino acids and vitamins. For example, it has 20 times more carotene than carrots. The vitamins are created by nature, which the body can fully utilize. The composition of amino acids is balanced, and their short polypeptide chains are easily breakable, unlike the long amino acid chains found in animal proteins. Therefore, compared to meat and its by-products, the body is not polluted with waste materials and toxins, and metabolism is not overloaded. Bee bread contains a large amount of unsaturated fatty acids omega-3 and omega-6, in a near-optimal ratio to each other. This is important for the normal functioning of human nerve cells. In nature, these fatty acids in a similar ratio can also be found in sprouted flaxseeds, hemp seeds, and fatty sea fish, which, unfortunately, due to water pollution, also contain undesirable substances, and fish are becoming increasingly scarce.

The bee's body is covered with hairs. When visiting flowers, pollen inevitably sticks to these hairs. Thus, it is transferred from flower to flower, performing plant pollination. Flowers contain more pollen than needed for pollination. Bees have three pairs of legs, with which they clean their bodies, comb their hairs, and thus pack the pollen into pellets, which are attached to their hind legs. Typically, in one outing, bees bring back two such pellets, one on each leg. Each pellet, up to two millimeters in diameter, contains about 2.5 million pollen grains.

Since pollen grains have a cellulose-like outer shell to protect them from the adverse effects of the environment, the enzymes present in the human body cannot sufficiently break them down, so the benefits derived from pollen are limited. Scientific studies show this figure varies between 20 - 40%. It's different with bee bread. By placing and compressing pollen in cells, bees process it with their saliva and cover it with honey. A hermetically sealed environment is created, and good bacteria, similar to those in our gut that feed on fiber, break down the cellulose shell. Fermentation occurs, increasing the amount of lactic acid. As a result of conservation, the human body can access up to 90% of these valuable substances. Vitamin K appears, which is not present in pollen. Preservation with lactic acid is a much better way to store valuable substances compared to sugar or salt, not to mention acetic acid. Neither pollen nor bee bread can cause allergies. They are caused by animal proteins, large molecular amino acid compounds that enter the body with dairy and meat products. Pollen only provokes the body's self-cleansing from undigested animal proteins (see the section "Immunity and Allergy").

It has been observed that when dogs or cats feel unwell, they instinctively chew grass. This is done to collect Bacillus subtilis bacteria, found both on plants and in soil, necessary for gut immunity. Both humans and bees are "warm-blooded" creatures. In the hive, where brood is kept, the temperature is strictly maintained at +34.5°C. This means that the entire development process of a bee from egg to the size we see occurs at this temperature. Bees are the only living being that collects and preserves these bacteria. Living in an urban environment isolated from nature, where household chemicals and food processing destroy both bad and good bacteria, gut symbiotic microflora suffers, resulting in weakened immunity. Therefore, the consumption of bee bread is particularly useful for those living in modern urban conditions.

For prevention, healthy people can use bee bread to strengthen the immune system, improve vision, memory, and concentration skills by taking a teaspoon twice a day, between meals. Moreover, bee bread delays the aging process and is an effective means of body rehabilitation after antibiotic use, as it restores the stomach and intestinal microflora, upon which immunity formation depends. In cosmetics, it is used for face masks. Very good results have been observed in treating infertility in both men and women.

Feeding larvae with royal jelly, whose raw material is bee bread, increases their weight 1500 times in three days. No other product in the animal world provides such an increase.

Long-term consumption of food products grown using intensive technologies and supplemented with preservatives, colorants, and flavor enhancers during the processing process gradually accumulates toxic substances in the human body, destroying the immune system and affecting enzyme activity. Scientific studies show that even with frequent and regular consumption of fruits and vegetables grown using intensive technologies, the amount of minerals and vitamins absorbed by the human body is insufficient. In this situation, bee bread could be one of the most effective means. It is also currently cheaper than synthetically synthesized preparations available in pharmacies. It can also be called a naturally created universal nutritional supplement, as it contains almost everything necessary for life. The second most valuable product for humans after bee bread is spirulina, which contains 18 amino acids and many minerals rare in everyday food products.

Due to the relatively complicated extraction technology, this exclusive product appeared on the Latvian market in a completely purified form in 2001. Unfortunately, the amount of bee bread that can be obtained from one hive is limited. As spring approaches, bees must breed a new generation from it. If the beekeeper does not specifically stimulate the bees to collect more pollen, approximately 1.0 -1.5 kg of bee bread comes from 70kg of honey.

For elderly people, bee bread can be used as an anti-sclerotic agent. It makes blood vessels more elastic, dissolves atherosclerotic plaques, improves brain blood supply, and restores intestinal microflora. Bee bread is the most effective means of increasing hemoglobin, containing all the necessary microelements for blood formation, including iron in organic form.

Especially desirable for women at the beginning and end of pregnancy to increase the immunity of mother and child, as well as to restore blood loss and improve lactation. For men, it is useful for increasing potency, treating prostate adenoma, and infertility. The number of sperm increases 2-3 times, and they become more mobile.


Try to chew thoroughly and suck longer to mix maximally with saliva. It should not be washed down with water or any liquid. Use at least 30 minutes before eating. If you need to restore microflora after intensive antibiotic use, then it's better to swallow the granules without chewing, to protect the conserved bacteria from the destructive action of stomach acid and bile until they reach the large intestine. For preventive purposes, a healthy adult is recommended to take two full teaspoons a day, that is, a total of 20g per day, although there are no strictly defined norms.


Preferably store in a dark place and at a steady temperature from 0°C to +10°C. This could be in a refrigerator. It is advisable to use it by the expiry date indicated on the package.
