NEW YORK, Sept. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Honeydrop Beverages, the leading producer of supercharged cold-pressed honey lemonades, celebrates honey's versatility and purity in recognition of National Honey Month this September. National Honey Month recognizes Colony Collapse Disorder, 'the phenomenon that occurs when the majority of worker bees in a colony disappear and leave behind a queen, plenty of food and a few nurse bees to care for the remaining immature bees and the queen.'
Honeydrop Beverages is fighting to combat Colony Collapse Disorder with their Buy a Bottle, Save a Bee program. By donating a percentage of the profits of every bottle sold to local beekeepers to build new hives and run educational programs, Honeydrop Beverages' efforts help preserve the bees to ensure that honey can be enjoyed in the future. Each Honeydrop Beverages flavor is made with local pure, medicinal grade honey and supercharged antimicrobial Manuka honey to provide products that are GMO- and gluten-free, good for people, the planet and the bees.
"Honeydrop Beverages' lemonades offer a refreshing, unique taste that incorporate raw honey into diets for added health benefits and simultaneously educate the population on the importance of Colony Collapse Disorder," said Honeydrop Beverages Director of Sales and Marketing, Mariell Kiernan. "We are dedicated to enriching the overall health and well-being of both our consumers and the bee population."
In addition to conserving the bee population, consuming local honey helps calm nerves, build up the immunity system, and help detoxify the body, among other benefits. A 2007 study by a Penn State College of Medicine research team found consuming a small dose of honey provided a better relief of nighttime cough and sleep difficulty than dextromethorphan (DM), a cough suppressant found in many over-the-counter cold medicines, or no treatment. Other studies have shown consuming local honey helps aid in the defense against seasonal allergies.
Honeydrop Beverages sells their products in stores regional to where the honey is produced and local to partnering honey farms. Honeydrop sources their beverages' honey from honey farms around the country including Stiles Apiary in the Tri-State area and Bloom Honey with bee hives in both Southern California and the Rockies and sources Manuka honey directly from New Zealand.
