Rosita Wild Bee Bread
Rosita Bee Bread is lacto-fermented, hive-stored pollen that’s rich in enzymes and natural nutrients, and supports digestion and the immune system, among myriad other health benefits.* This wild and raw superfood is made by giant rock bees (Apis dorsata) from the lush, green tropical forests and Himalayan foothills of India.
The Bee Bread is created in the hive through an entirely raw and natural fermentation process by the wild (not farmed) bees. They mix pollen, saliva and honeycomb nectar within cells and seal the cell with a drop of honey, signaling the start of the lactic fermentation process similar to that of yogurt. This breaks down pollen and enables the bees to add naturally occurring enzymes, transforming the pollen into bee bread.

Ayurvedic plant base:
The biochemical richness of bee bread varies upon the flora diversity of the region and the time of the pollen collection. Rosita Bee Bread is sourced from the world’s most pristine areas, including the Himalayas. The wild bees forage on a variety of Ayurvedic wild naturally-growing therapeutic flora with health-supporting properties such as neem, sweet neem, jamun and many more!*
Health benefits, studies and ancient use:
In many countries, bee bread and other bee-derived products are implemented in apitherapy (treatment using bee-derived products) to support health in various ways.*
A Russian study questioned 150 Russian centenarians in the Caucasus region about their diet, age and occupation and found that most worked as beekeepers and nearly all of them regularly consumed honey enriched with pollen.*
Scientific research suggests that due to its nutrient-rich profile, bee bread may act as an antioxidant, antimicrobial (antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral) and anti-inflammatory.*
Moreover, bee bread may support intestinal flora, the digestive and immune systems, liver and prostate health, urinary health, fertility and libido, triglyceride and cholesterol levels within normal ranges, cardiovascular health, concentration and memory, nervous and endocrine system function and healthy energy levels.*
It may also act as a mild detoxifying agent and ease mild allergies, like hay fever.*
Plus, bee bread may support the skin and is associated with increased longevity.*
According to the American Apitherapy Society, bee bread has been used by Olympic athletes to support their immune systems, boost performance and improve their crucial recovery time after performance.*
- Early Egyptians and the ancient Chinese believed bee bread to be a rejuvenator and balm.* Even the ancient Vikings are said to have taken honeycomb and bee bread with them on their long voyages.*
Bee bread is also a naturally-gluten free food and is appropriate for Paleo diets and other dietary protocols that focus on ancestral eating.*
Bee bread versus bee pollen:
Bee bread is characterized by a higher nutritional value than fresh pollen, and is more biologically active and digestible due to the high content of easily digestible sugars, fats, minerals and free amino acids.* And, due to the fermentation process, bee bread has an exceptional shelf life compared with dried or frozen pollen in which nutritional values are rapidly lost.
- Adults: 1 teaspoon per day (approximately 8 nuggets). Active adults can increase the dose to 1 teaspoon twice per day or as required.
- Children and sensitive individuals: ½ teaspoon per day (approximately 4 nuggets).
- Low and slow: Rosita is premium, pure and potent. Therefore, it’s critically important to start slowly, with a lower dosage than recommended. For example, a very small dose every other day, or even once a week, until you can determine how the supplement affects your body and what dosage feels right for you.
How to take Rosita Bee Bread:
Rosita Bee Bread may be consumed daily, preferably 30 minutes before breakfast or meals. It can be chewed or it can dissolve in the mouth.
When to avoid:
Interestingly, while allergy to bee pollen is common, allergy to bee bread is rare.* However, Rosita Bee Bread is not recommended for people with a history of anaphylactic shocks or those allergic or hypersensitive to bee products and bee stings.*
Rosita Bee Bread is also not recommended for children under 1 year of age.
