Always consult your Health Professional before taking any supplements.
It is important to recognize that a one teaspoon dose of pollen takes one bee working eight hours a day for one month to gather. Each bee pollen pellet, contains over two million flower pollen grains and one teaspoonful contains over 2.5 billion grains of flower pollen.
2. Skin Soother - Bee pollen is often used in topical products that aim to treat inflammatory conditions and common skin irritations like psoriasis or eczema. The amino acids and vitamins protect the skin and aid the regeneration of cells.
3. Respiratory System - Bee pollen contains a high quantity of antioxidants that may have an anti-inflammatory effect on the tissues of the lungs, preventing the onset of asthma.
4. Treating Allergies – Pollen reduces the presence of histamine, ameliorating many allergies. Dr. Leo Conway, M.D of Denver Colorado, reported that 94 percent of his patients were completely free from allergy symptoms once treated with oral feeding of pollen. Everything from asthma to allergies to sinus problems were cleared, confirming that bee pollen is wonderfully effective against a wide range of respiratory diseases.
5. Digestive System - In addition to healthful vitamins, minerals and protein, bee pollen contains enzymes that can aid in digestion. Enzymes assist your body in getting all the nutrients you need from the food that you eat.
6. Immune System Booster - Pollen is good for the intestinal flora and thereby supports the immune system. According to holistic health expert Dr. Joseph Mercola, bee pollen has antibiotic-type properties that can help protect the body from contracting viruses. It's also rich in antioxidants that protect the cells from the damaging oxidation of free radicals.
7. Treats Addictions – Used holistically for healing addictions and inhibiting cravings by suppressing impulses. Because bee pollen crashes cravings, it is a very useful research is needed into this benefit, particularly when it comes to weight management.
8. Supports the Cardiovascular System - Bee Pollen contains large amounts of Rutin; an antioxidant bioflavonoid that helps strengthen capillaries, blood vessels, assists with circulatory problems and corrects cholesterol levels. Its potent anti-clotting powers could help prevent heart attack and stroke.
9. Prostate Aid - Men who suffer from benign prostate hyperplasia can find relief by using bee pollen. Bee pollen can help reduce inflammation to stop frequent urges to urinate.
10. Infertility Problems - Bee pollen stimulates and restores ovarian function, therefore may be used to assist in accelerating pregnancy. As well as being a hormonal booster it is also a great aphrodisiac!
~A variety of fatty acids (70% is the omega 3 ALA, 3-4% is the Omega 6 LA and 16-17% is monounsaturated and saturated fat)
~Simple carbohydrates (many of the same sugars that are found in honey.)
~All the Beeee vitamins (including biotin, folic acid, choline and inositol but not a usable form of B12)
~Vitamin D (which is rare for plant foods to contain)
~Up to 60 major and minor minerals (including some rare elements like gold in amounts as high as 0.9 parts per million depending on the type of flower pollen used.)
~Nucleic acids such as RNA and DNA (a component found in the diets of many centenarians.)
~Steroidal and hormonal substances (natural plant sources of these are safe and beneficial)
~15% lecithin (which lowers cholesterol as well being food the brain.)
~High on the ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorption Capacity) scale due to a wide array of antioxidants (it is scored at 164, while blueberries for example are a 61)
~Rutin (a key antioxidant for strengthening the walls of the vascular system, also helps stabilize vitamin C)
~Carotenoids such as xanthophyll and alpha/beta carotenes (the more antioxidant carotenoids a mammal gets, the longer it can live.)
~At least 11 major enzymes (which are necessary for digestion. Bee pollen benefits and complements a live food diet since the extra enzymes have an anti-aging effect on the cells of the body.)
~Over 5000 minor enzymes and coenzymes (this is the most enzyme rich product on Earth!)
~1-3% of pollen is made up of unidentified "mysterious" compounds... quite likely Ormus minerals which is what makes this food so incredibly valuable and magical!
The bee pollen nutritional content can vary according to the quality of the finished product (how it was packaged etc), as well as the species of flowers that the bees collected the pollen from. Individual bee pollen granules can vary in colour and slightly in size depending again on the sources of the pollen the bee happens to be collecting from.
