MINERALS AND TRACE ELEMENTS
for healthier and stronger honey bees.
Minerals and Trace Elements FOR BEES is 100% natural minerals, trace elements, amino acids and fatty acids for honey bees.
Simply add 10 ml to 1 litre of your bee's syrup feed or drinking water.
Minerals and Trace Elements FOR BEES has been scientifically proven to contain THE SAME KEY MINERALS AND TRACE ELEMENTS AS HONEY AND POLLEN.
Honey bees actively try to source minerals and trace elements however due to environmental stresses they are often unable to find them.
Mineral Bee has all the minerals and trace elements for bees and contains 100% natural ingredients. This amazing solution for your bees, contains the minerals, trace elements, amino acids and fatty acids for honeybees.

Current Opinion in Insect Science
"I used Mineral Bee during the establishment of my late season splits this year. Late season splits are prone to chalk brood and nosema. In my opinion, the use of Mineral Bee has greatly reduced these problems for me this season."

Why add Minerals & Trace Elements?
Honeybees actively try to source minerals and trace elements however due to environmental stresses they are often unable to find them.
The nutritional elements that limit honeybee development to the highest degree due to their scarcity in pollen are Na, S, Cu, P and K. Zn and N. (Michal Filipiak et al. Institute of Environmental Sciences, Jagiellonian University, Poland).
Sugar syrup has very little nutritional value apart from carbohydrates however it is necessary for the feeding of bees when there is insufficient stores of honey available.

Made from concentrated ocean minerals .
The mineral content of honeybee-collected pollen from 34 floral species was analysed for 10 elements. The major and minor elements were the following:
Potassium (K), Phosphorus (P), Sulfur (S), Calcium (Ca), Magnesium (Mg), Sodium (Na), Iron (Fe), Zinc (Zn), Manganese (Mn), Copper (Cu).
Many of these minerals are important components in enzymatic metabolism and also nervous system polarisation and depolarisation. To emphasise this point, the minerals identified in the three main body regions of the honeybee and in royal jelly are potassium, sodium, magnesium and phosphorus. These minerals are crucial in honeybee metabolism and also in proper nervous system functioning.

THE IMPORTANCE OF FATTY ACIDS
Fatty acids are necessary for bee reproduction and development including fat bodies that play a role in energy storage and release as well as immune function in insects.
THE IMPORTANCE OF AMINO ACIDS
The amino acids (glutamic acid) in pollens are required by the bee for synthesis of tissues, hemolymph proteins, enzymes, etc.
