The Premier One brand uses various delivery forms, each chosen for its particular benefits, including capsules, chewable wafers, granules, tinctures, and our original, popular Royal Jelly in Honey products.
Some of Premier One’s other popular products include Raw Energy®, an energy product that includes royal jelly, bee pollen and a variety of herbs, and BeeFense™, a popular immune support product that includes bee propolis and echinacea. Premier One’s packaging recently was redesigned with a new updated look that continues to include a distinctive logo of a bee harvesting scene in a mountain setting.
What are bee products?
When honey was discovered by early man in the trunk of a tree, chances are that other products from the hive—venom, wax, bee pollen, royal jelly, and propolis, were also discovered. Thus, beehive products are perhaps some of the oldest supplements known to man.
Premier One also has combined ingredients, such as the very popular ephedra-free energizing Raw Energy® products, which combine royal jelly and bee pollen with Siberian ginseng and gotu kola, or the Raw Energy® Stamina Cordyceps CS-4 with cordyceps and Rhodiola rosea.
The Best From the Hive
One day in 1984, a man walked into Gordon Campbell’s health food store in Omaha, Nebraska, selling fresh royal jelly (the bees’ milk—a creamy liquid with thousands of years of historical use throughout Asia). He convinced Campbell of its benefits, but there was one drawback—it had to be refrigerated. Campbell did not have refrigeration in his store, so he had to store the fresh royal jelly in his home freezer and bring it to the store when he had a special request for it.
Campbell became fascinated with this “bees’ milk” and he eventually discovered through his research that honey could preserve royal jelly at room temperature. Campbell began to experiment in his kitchen, adding various amounts of honey to royal jelly, overcoming numerous problems with moisture, yeast, and fermentation to develop the first American royal jelly in honey product.
Over the next ten years, Campbell developed his royal jelly in honey business through a telemarketing team that sold to health food stores throughout the country and then expanded overseas to Japan, Barbados, Singapore, and Canada. He expanded from his royal jelly in honey products to include the other nutritional supplement bee products—bee pollen and propolis.
Nutraceutical acquired Premier One in 1995 and has since expanded the line to include specialty products such as the Raw Energy® line and a combination propolis and licorice product called PRO/DGL™ that helps support the stomach lining.
