Few people know that there is a bee product that is more healing and healthier than pollen, honey and propolis. It is about perga or “bee bread”.
Perga is the highest quality material you can get from the hive, because it is a “meal that the bee makes for itself”.
Namely, the bee does not consume fresh pollen, but stores its granules in empty honeycomb windows and mixes them with its digestive enzymes, nectar and wax.
After three months of fermentation, perga is formed.Compared to pollen, this bee product has incomparably higher healing power, and far higher amounts of nutrients such as vitamins A, B, C, E, K, enzymes, minerals (potassium, zinc, magnesium, calcium, iron, selenium… ), amino acids, which, thanks to the fermentation process, are exceptionaleasily resorbed in the body), quercetin, protein, unsaturated fatty acids … it is excellent for immunity and the nervous system, preserves nerve endings and is especially recommended for diabetics.
It is very important to consume it properly.
It can be stored in the freezer for 14 years without changing its properties because it is completely fermented.
In the process of obtaining a perga, everything is done manually and it is a long and arduous job, which, in addition to the quality of the perga, significantly affects the price itself.
How pollen becomes perga?
The process of pollen processing in perga is very complex and takes about 21 days.
It starts while the bee is collecting pollen from the flowers, packing it in baskets on the back pair of legs and moistening it with saliva from its glands.
Fermentation begins in the air while the bee is flying and during the summer in the pollen there is an increase in the amount of organic acids that initiate the fermentation process.
When a bee brings a lump of pollen into the hive, it hands it over to other young bees that add microorganisms, yeasts, fungi, and bacteria needed to ferment the perga to the pollen.
In order for the pollen to be successfully converted into perga, in addition to the enzymes of bees, the appropriate humidity and temperature (microclimate) in the hive provided by the bees are needed.
Lactic acid fermentation lasts about 3 weeks and as a result of fermentation, perga or Bee Bread is formed.
When the fermentation process is over, the bees stuff the perga well into the honeycomb, up to two thirds of its height and water it with a thin layer of honey, then the perga is ready for use.
Perga with its useful properties, in addition to high antimicrobial action, also has great biological value.
What a perga is used for?
Perga is used as a supplement to the daily diet in which there is a lack of proteins, vitamins and minerals.
It is used in diseases of the nervous and endocrine systems, in diseases of the stomach and duodenum. It increases the number of erythrocytes and hemoglobin in the blood.
Strengthens immunity increases resistance to infections, restores intestinal flora, improves prostate function and potency, maintains skin moisture. Strengthens vision with the help of vitamin A, which is especially important in the digital age.
Perga is especially used by people exposed to harmful radiation – in X-ray rooms, at risky jobs or after diagnostic examinations.
In people prone to alcoholism, perga returns to the body the necessary vitamins and minerals that alcohol has previously destroyed, improving the significant condition of that person.
For medicinal purposes perga is also used for:
– Improving appetite
– For better growth of children
– As an anti-aging agent
– Strengthening immunity
– For the treatment of influenza
-Accelerates the excretion of toxins
– Balancing endocrine disorders
– Strengthening psychophysical abilities
– In atherosclerosis
– In hypotension and hypertension
– For better memory. Stimulates brain function
– Cholesterol lowering
– Improves mood and increases resistance to stress
-Strengthens muscles with the help of vitamin E.
– Protection of the organism from harmful radiation.
– In diseases of blood vessels
– In post-infarction and stroke conditions
– Recovery of a person after exposure of the organism to harmful radiation
– Prostate treatment
– In chronic constipation
– Recovery from severe illness
– It slows tumor growth
– Treatment of polycystic ovaries
– When solving sterility problems
How to use perga – two ways:
Take the perga granule and dissolve it in the mouth, slowly. The longer it is in the mouth, the more medicinal ingredients from the perga will be used, and do not drink water until the meal. Perga can be used by everyone, the optimal daily dose for an adult is approximately 2 g, that is approximately 16 granulesfor children over three years, the recommended dose is 1 g, or 8 granules. It is used for 20 days, then there is a break for about 10 days, so you can continue using it again.
It is best to divide the daily amount of perga into three parts and take it 3 times a day before meals for half an hour.
In this way, useful substances are absorbed in the mucous membrane of the oral cavity.
It is possible to take a larger amount of perga, there will be no harm to the body, but there will be no greater resorption and therefore no greater benefit in the body during normal functioning.
The exceptions are athletes and people under great physical effort who can take up to 4 grams during the day.
If there is discomfort when taking perga on an empty stomach in people who do not like taking anything before a meal, then take perga an hour after a meal.
Another way is to use perga in honey. The crushed perga is mixed with honey by mixing 60 g of crushed perga with a kilogram of honey.
The mixture with honey is used:
For an adult 2-3 times a day, one teaspoon.
For children from 2-4 years 2-3 times a day for 1/3 teaspoon.
For children 4-12 years 2-3 times a day 1/2 teaspoon.
