Locally Sourced Honey & Granola

Honey Overview
Honey is far more than just a natural sweetener. It’s one of nature’s purest foods. For centuries, raw honey has been used as both a food and a medicine. Much of the honey consumed today is processed honey, which has been heated and filtered, destroying its incredible nutritional value. Our honey at Nature’s Elite is locally sourced pure, unfiltered, and unpasteurized raw honey.

Raw honey has amazing health benefits. First of all, it contains bee pollen, which is known to ward off infections, provide natural allergy relief, and boost overall immunity. The benefits of consuming raw honey are countless. Raw honey can help boost energy, relieve symptoms from seasonal allergies, and even help weight-loss efforts.

Bee Pollen Overview
Bee Pollen is a good source of vitamins, minerals, proteins, lipids and fatty acids, enzymes, carotenoids, and bioflavonoids. It can be useful as an antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral agent. Bee pollen can also reduce inflammation, stimulate the immune system, and lowers cholesterol levels. Research has shown that bee pollen is also useful in preventing and reversing malnourishment and poor nutrition.

Bee pollen makes a great addition to smoothies, yogurt, cottage cheese, cereal, baked goods, and salads.
