The BeeVital Story

James Fearnley, the founder of BeeVital, has been involved in natural medicine since the early 1970's. In 1992 he co-founded a company specialising in bee products and was responsible for a renaissance of interest in propolis as a modern day medicine.

Setting standards

James Fearnley initiated the first international standard for propolis and was one of the first people in the UK to commission serious scientific studies into propolis (at the Universities of Oxford and Manchester). He is recognised worldwide as an authority in the field and is the author of Bee Propolis - Natural Healing from the Hive, Souvenir Press 2001. This pioneering book is probably the most comprehensive overview of research into propolis in the English language. It explains how to use propolis as part of everyday care, with advice on preparations and dosages, as well as describing the usage of propolis throughout history and across large areas of the world.

World leader in research

BeeVital was formed in 2002 with the principal purpose of further exploring the many pharmacological and clinical properties of propolis. In May 2004 BeeVital won a major UK government Research and Development Award to look at the potential for developing licensed medicines from propolis. See Research.

Quality and consumer information

BeeVital's emphasis has from the beginning been the twin goals of quality and consumer information. The product range we offer is produced using propolis with an authentic chemical and pharmacological profile. See Products.
