I've always hated taking over-the-counter prescription medicine. You don't really know what chemicals you're putting into your body. For example, loads of cough medicines contain chloroform and ingredients that are carcinogenic in large quantities. I started researching natural alternatives and became really interested in propolis, the resinous mixture collected by honey bees.
Propolis is renowned for its anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and healing properties. It has been used in natural medicine for thousands of years and traces have even been found on Egyptian mummies - the propolis helped preserve the bodies and kept the bacteria out. I started taking propolis regularly as a supplement and then I met up with some nutritionists and started working on a formula.
I launched UnBEElievable Health two and a half years ago, and now we have a range of products aimed at dealing with various health issues. Despite being a tiny team, we are now in 600 stores in the UK. UnBEElievable products were rolled out across 400 Holland & Barrett outlets at the end of last year and it's been manic ever since.
