Hivemakers thymol additive for syrup is supposed to help with varroa and Nosema

i add 2g of magnesium vit C to my 1 ltre syrup to boost brood (honey contains it at 2g per litre)

Abstract

Pollen collected by bees was sampled during a 3-h period once a week from April to October 1983 and analyzed for vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid and dehydroascorbic acid). The levels were highly variable and ranged from a low of 136 μg/g pollen (April) to a high of 1943 μg/g pollen (May). Overall, caged honeybees fed diets containing 1,000 and 2,000 μg/g L-ascorbic acid reared significantly more bees to the sealed stage than bees fed diets with 500 μg/g ascorbic acid or control bees. The levels of vitamin C in prepupae reared by bees ranged from 64.5 to 103.5 μg/g body mass. Vitamin C is either synthesized from simple precursors or from symbiotic microorganisms in the gut since honeybees fed the ascorbic acid-free control had equivalent levels of ascorbic acid to those fed the enriched diets. The total diet consumption by bees during the 10-week study showed that the four diets were equally attractive.
