Many of us health enthusiasts have dropped insane amounts of money on natural products that don’t work. Carly Stein, founder of Beekeeper’s Naturals, has found some that actually do.
As it turns out, bees make some incredible things. I’m not talking about wasps or yellow jackets (bees’ jerk cousins), but rather honeybees, those benevolent little insects which create propolis, pollen, royal jelly, and - of course - honey.
Carly Stein grew up with a weakened immune system due to an autoimmune condition. She got sick incredibly easily and didn’t really have options; because of her condition, she couldn’t take antibiotics. Unfortunately, all of the natural treatments that she tried weren’t effective enough. As a kid, a common cold could land her in the hospital.
While traveling in Italy as an adult, Carly experienced an especially awful bout of tonsillitis. Desperate for a solution, she went to a local Italian pharmacist and discovered a bee product called propolis - the first natural product that actually truly helped her.
Since that moment, Carly has been a woman on a mission to save the bees and change the face of healthcare.
She left her high-powered, high-paying, and high-stress corporate job and founded Beekeeper’s Naturals, a collective of small farms creating completely organic, effective bee products like propolis, pollen, honey, and royal jelly. Beekeeper’s Naturals makes it infinitely easier for us all to find natural health products that actually work.
