Key Active Ingredients

HiveAlive is largely composed of a unique blend of scientifically selected Irish seaweed called OceaShield which has many beneficial properties. Seaweeds are routinely fed in animal feeds to help improve general health.

HiveAlive contains thyme which is recognised as a key substance in maintaining healthy colonies. We have developed a unique emulsification process to ensure it blends easily into sugar syrup and does not cause separation or re-crystallisation.

HiveAlive contains a precise amount of lemongrass in order to increase attractiveness of syrup but does not contain enough to induce unwanted robbing. Lemongrass also has a calming effect on bees.
