Bee pollen is referred to as "nature's perfect food" and contains 96 known nutrients. No other single food offers the array of vitamins, minerals, protein, amino acids, antibiotics, enzymes, trace elements, fats, and hormones found in bee pollen. It can alleviate the nutritional deficiencies common in today's world, and help the body rebuild and rejuvenate itself. Bee pollen not only rejuvenates your body but stimulates organs and glands, enhances vitality, and brings about a longer life span.
Bee pollen contains up to 40% protein, which is more protein than any animal product and all the essential amino acids making it an excellent food for building strength and nourishing the brain. It is a rich dietary source of zinc, calcium, magnesium, iron, and other minerals, and provides the highest concentration of vitamins of any food found in nature.
It is also packed with live enzymes, as well as phytonutrients, including co-enzymes, bioflavonoids, phytosterols and carotenoids.
Bee pollen is a natural antibiotic in which bacteria simply cannot exist, providing increased resistance to infection. Antibiotic factors present in the pollen have been proven effective against E. coli, proteus, and salmonella organisms.
Bee pollen is also a good source of rutin, which helps increase the strength and integrity of blood cell walls, strengthens the heart, and helps control high blood pressure.
Pollen is also an excellent free radical scavenger that can protect against the negative effects of pollution and exposure to radiation.

What is Bee Pollen?
Bee pollen is the male seed of a flower blossom that has been gathered by the bees. The honeybee collects pollen and mixes it with its own digestive enzymes. One pollen granule contains from one hundred thousand to five million pollen spores each capable of reproducing its entire species.
Clinical tests show that orally ingested bee pollen particles are rapidly and easily absorbed--they pass directly from the stomach into the blood stream. Within two hours after ingestion, bee pollen is found in the blood, in cerebral spinal fluids, and in the urine.
Bee pollen proves to be quite useful for activity enhancement and sports nutrition. It produces an accelerated rate of recovery, including a return to normal heart rate, breathing, and readiness for the next event. Bee pollen improves second and subsequent performances. Humans that are not receiving bee pollen do show declining performances. It provides energy, stamina, and strength, and enhances performance levels.
Bee pollen should not be confused with the pollen that is blown by the wind and is a common cause of allergies. Allergy-causing pollen is called anemophily; it is light and easily blown by the wind. Bee pollen is heavier and stickier, and is collected off of bees' legs by special devices placed at the entrance to hives. It is called entomophilies or "friends of the insects," and will rarely cause allergy symptoms.
The wide range of nutrients found in bee pollen work together, providing a synergistic impact that seems to improve their overall absorption by the body and enable better utilization of other nutrients present in the diet. Pollen corrects imbalances caused by deficient nutrition, and provides particular benefits when the body is challenged during times of increased stress.
Our high grade bee pollen granules are completely unadulterated, coming to you from the hives after a low-temperature drying process. Bee pollen has a lightly sweet, nutty flavor that is enjoyable on salads, muesli, yogurts, in smoothies, and on top of toast. To maintain enzymatic integrity, do not expose bee pollen to any heat source and store in cool, dark environment.
We suggest 1 teaspoon per day which is an amount that takes one bee working 8 hours a day for a month to gather. If this is your first time taking bee pollen we suggest that you try a granule first to guard against a rare but possible extreme allergic reaction.
