Pahrump Honey Co is based in Southeast Pahrump, Nevada close to the Nevada California borders. Our Desert Honey is gathered by Bees working the Great Basin Desert and collecting Nectar and Pollen from many desert plants like Yucca, Mesquite, wild flowers, orchards and Alfalfa fields.
Some nectar is also gathered from the native grasses and Thistle bushes, flowering ground covers plus the Cottonwood, Elm, and Mesquite trees. Where there is a flower in the Desert, there too you may find one of our industrious Lady Bees going about their business of gathering the elixir of life for you.
Honey has been used by countless cultures all around the world over the past 2,500 years. While the numerous health benefits of honey have made it an important element of traditional medicines such as Ayurvedic treatments, scientists are also researching the benefits in relation to modern medicine, particularly in the healing of wounds.
It is known as Honig in German, Miele in Italian, Shahad in Hindi, Miel in French and Spanish, Mel in Portuguese, мед in Russian, Honing in Dutch, and μελι in Greek; there is almost no part in the world where honey is not widely used and celebrated as a part of the cultural diet.
But what makes honey so popular? Most likely, it is the ease with which it can be consumed. One can eat it directly, put it on bread like a jam, mix it with juice or any drink instead of sugar, or mix it with warm water, lime juice, cinnamon and other herbs to make a medicine. It is savored by all due to its taste as well as health benefits, making it extremely useful and versatile. Continue reading Health Benefits of Honey are Numerous
The nutritional complexity of the bee hive is vast. A very unique complex of micronutrients is required to allow the Bees to differentiate themselves into their different roles and provide the nutrition necessary to keep the hive going. Royal Jelly is a honey bee secretion that allows a specific bee larvae to grow into the Queen Bee. Modern spectrometric analysis suggests that royal jelly contains about 185 different organic compounds, with the most important one being a protein called royalactin. It’s believed that royalactin is the compound most responsible for allowing a larvae to morph into the queen bee.
Bee pollen is the male seed of a flower blossom which are collected by the honey bees and mixed with the bees’ digestive enzymes. It’s a blend of sticky pollen granules that could contain up to five million pollen spores each. Raved by many scientists as a complete nutrition, a super nutritious, perfect food, these tiny pollens contain almost all the nutrients required by the human body and are enormously rich in proteins, vitamins, minerals, beneficial fatty acids, carotenoids, and bioflavonoids which are anti-viral, antibacterial and helpful in lowering cholesterol, stabilizing and strengthening capillaries. Pollen is the only plant source that contains the exclusive vitamin B12.
Propolis is a natural anti-cancer and antibiotic made by honeybees that is fast gaining in popularity in the application of home remedies! It’s a bee product that makes head turn and cause us to wow at the wonder of nature and marvel at the ability of the highly organized insect – honey bee. Enjoy the fascinating story of propolis and how the bees use it to protect themselves from diseases.
Some trees and conifers produce sticky resins as part of their immune system to defend themselves against disease. Honey bees collect these substances that ooze from the buds of these plants. (Research found out that honeybees make discrete choices among resinous plant species. PLOS ONE Journal, Oct 2013) After chewing them and mixing them with their saliva and other substances, propolis is formed. This nutrient-rich substance is of vital importance for the survival of the honey bees in the beehive. It is created to sterilize the hive and protect it against diseases and infection. Interestingly, “propolis” means “in defence of the city” in Greek. Not only does it help to inhibit the spread of bacteria, virus, and fungi that would otherwise pose a significant threat in the closely-knit quarters, it also helps fight against climatic changes, such as wind and cold.
