"Honey with rose petals is a natural antioxidant and aphrodisiac. It is successfully used in the fight against allergies caused by vaious agents. There is no laxative effect, and the recommended dose for an adult is 1 tsp. daily. Another interesting product is the bee elixir with a combination of five bee products: honey, bee pollen, royal jelly, propolis and apilarnil. This product has a strong synergistic effect. With it ,we imitate bee behavior in the beehive. Bee pollen is a powerful immunostimulator, "commented the Ilievs family.
