This week we’re adding some honey to our Morning Matcha! Nikki sits down with Carly Stein, founder and CEO of Beekeeper’s Naturals. Like a lot of ladies pioneering the nutrition and wellness movement, Carly’s story began with her own health struggles.
For years she battled an autoimmune disease that prevented her from taking antibiotics. After getting sick in Europe she was prescribed propolis, which cured her fully. Inspired, she dove into the world of honey and discovered it was complex and full of healing properties.
Straight honey is the main carb source for bees and is collected from floral nectar. It’s great for your liver and helps you sleep. Propolis “the medicine of the hive” is an immune booster you can use every day, collected from sap and tree resin. And lastly, royal jelly is the Queen Bee’s food of choice whose benefits include hormone-balancing, anti-aging, memory, and healthy brain activity.
Transformed personally and moved by the healing magic of bees, Carly made it her mission to share bee medicine with her local community. She began small at local farmer’s markets, but in true Queen Bee fashion it rapidly expanded, having been featured on the Wall Street Journal, Goop, and Pop Sugar to name just a few.
