Bee pollen is believed to contain all the essential nutrients required by the body. What is bee pollen exactly and where does it come from? As the bee sits on the flower to suck nectar within the flowers, pollen granules from the flower stick to its legs and other body parts. This pollen is specifically collected from the stamen of the flowers and a full colony of bees can gather as much as 50,000 loads of pollen a day. The bees then pack this pollen powder into granules, by adding nectar or previously prepared honey and an enzyme to prevent germination. This enzyme metabolizes the pollen for food, thereby preserving the bee pollen nutritional benefits. This mixture of plant pollen, enzyme and nectar is called bee pollen.

This one convenient source is a storehouse of vitamins, minerals, proteins, fats and oils, carbohydrates, amino acids, over 5,000 enzymes and coenzymes, hormones, peptones, polypeptides and globulins, high concentrations of the nucleic acids RNA and DNA, and a variety of antibiotic substances. Thus, many use honey bee pollen for health reasons.

With the addition of roughage and water, the human body can survive on honey bee pollen alone. This is because it is the only food which contains, in perfect balance, all 28 known essential nutritional, which humans require to achieve and maintain optimum vitality. That's why it has rightfully been called the "Ultimate Survival Pack".

In the formula found only in the beehive, the nutritional ingredients of honey bee pollen can assist and enhance the full spectrum of physiological functions.

By providing the human body with all the nutritional elements it needs, and in just the right proportions, honey bee pollen allows the body's own healing and rejuvenation mechanisms to perform their normal functions of building, restoring, and maintaining and protecting every cell.


Bee Pollen Facts

Bee pollen is yellowish to orange in color and comes in the form of small pellets or granules. Bees collect pollen because of its high nutritional value. Bee pollen provides all the essential nutrients for the growth and development of bees. However, besides being beneficial to bees, bee pollen is also believed to benefit humans. It has been used to enhance memory, energy and performance, although, there is no scientific proof of its authenticity.

Bee pollen is high in protein, low in fat and sodium. It is also a storehouse of oils, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, hormones, enzymes, polypeptides, peptones, globulins, high concentration of nucleic acids and several antibiotic substances. It is this nutritional factory that makes bee pollen such a nutritional item.

There are two kinds of pollen: anemophile ("friend of the wind"), and entomophile ("friend of the insect"). The former, which causes allergic reactions like hayfever, is dispersed by the air. The latter, which is the subject of this information, is gathered by the honeybee, whose travels from flower to flower make possible the reproduction of more than 80% of the world's grains, fruits, vegetables and legumes.

The individual pollen grain in encased in two protective coatings. The exine, composed of sporopollen and cellulose, is known to be acid-resistant, and has withstood temperatures in excess of 300 degrees C. Beneath this is the thinner, intine layer, which preserves oil and starch.

The honeybee collects only the purest of pollens. It avoids all toxic plants, including those contaminated with pesticides.

Did you know that bee pollen is one of the world's oldest health foods, of which references are found in Ancient religious books like the Bible, the Koran as well as ancient Chinese and Egyptian texts. While its apparent health and healing benefits are well-known.

Is Bee Pollen Nature's Perfect Food?

Being rich in essential nutrients, bee pollen is touted to be 'nature's perfect food'.

Anemia Healer

Bee pollen intake is believed to raise the count of red and white blood cells in the body. Thus, when given to anemic patients, levels of hemoglobin have been observed to increase. 

Protein Provider

Bee pollen consists of 20 to 35% protein, of which more than half is in the form of free amino acids. Free amino acids are easy to assimilate at the cellular level. This readily available form of protein is a great protein source for the body.

Builds resistance to Allergies

Since, bee pollen normally contains traces of components capable of triggering allergies, it is believed by some allergists that taking some bee pollen will help reduce sensitivity levels to local plant pollens. Bee pollen ingestion can help boost one's immune system and get rid of seasonal allergy symptoms.

Natural Energizer

Bee pollen furnishes the body with natural energy, that provides great vitality and energy. It is believed that bee pollen is nutritionally loaded unlike any food on the planet. Lots of people these days eat a processed diet, which is devoid of essential nutrients. By consuming bee pollen, one is actually indirectly consuming the nutrients lacking in the body.

Antioxidant Properties

Bee pollen contains polyphenols or bioflavonoids, which are characterized by antioxidant properties. Antioxidants destroy the free radicals formed as a result of metabolism, which are potential cell-damaging radicals. Scientists have stated that bee pollen contains the highest concentration of antioxidants, as compared to any food source known to man. Antioxidants help prevent cancer, however, do not believe any of the claims that say bee pollen can cure cancer. This is not true!

Weight Loss Properties

Bee pollen supplement manufacturers and promoters say bee pollen has appetite suppressing and metabolism increasing properties, which help lose weight. The lecithin content is believed to be the one responsible for the pollen's calorie burning properties.

Vitamins and Mineral Content

Bee pollen is known to contain about 28 minerals and 18 vitamins. 28 minerals are found in the human body. 14 are vital, essential elements present in such small amounts that they are called “micro-nutrients”. Moreover, bee pollen is also touted to be the richest food source of vitamins known today.

Bee Pollen for Athletes

Bee pollen is believed to be an excellent energy provider and stamina builder. It is also known to give strength and endurance, which is why it is readily embraced by athletes.

Bee pollen is also known to conduce to severe allergic reactions. Small amounts of bee pollen, even less than one teaspoon can trigger serious reactions such as anaphylaxis in people. Thus, people with pollen allergies should refrain from ingesting bee pollen.

One must be extremely cautious while purchasing bee pollen supplements, because most of the supplements sold are imported from countries like China, where the pollution levels are extremely high.

Appropriate Dosage of Bee Pollen

Take half (1/2) teaspoon daily for two days to adjust yourself and to check on any rare allergy reaction. In the absence of any obvious symptoms continue consuming bee pollen at a rate of one (1) teaspoon twice a day.
