HiveAlive is a simple, safe nutritional supplement that is added to sugar syrup. It is developed and manufactured in Ireland following 6 years of internationally validated research.
HiveAlive™ uses only natural active ingredients scientifically selected for maximum efficacy. The key ingredient is OceaShield, a blend of bioactive seaweed extracts that are internationally recognised to have beneficial properties for both animals and humans. OceaShield™ provides a rich and nourishing food source that promotes bees’ intestinal well-being.
International trials have shown that routinely feeding HiveAlive™ produces significantly stronger colonies when compared to a control (syrup without HiveAlive™). Recent trials performed by the Hellenic Institute of Apiculture, Greece and Veto-Pharma, France consistently show increased population, brood and honey production. Up to 89% population increase was observed. For more information, go to AdvanceScience.com
