In the harsh wilderness of the Himalayan Mountains live the Himalayan Cliff Bees; the world's largest honey bees.  They can grow up to three centimeters in length and produce a red colored honey unlike any other.  The people of China and Nepal tout the benefits of this honey that not only helps with diabetes, hypertension, and sexual performance but also has power psychoactive properties.
