What Is Bee Pollen?
Bee Pollen is the ultra fine powder from the anthers of flowers that makes up the male element of a flower. Bees gather this pollen in microscopic amounts and bring it back to their hive for food. It is the principal source of protein, fat and minerals in the honeybee diet. By natural instinct bees collect only the most nutritive and healthy pollens, passing by poor pollen. Bee pollen always varies in colour due to the vast variety of flowers the bees visit. They do this on purpose to ensure a wide and varying range of proteins. The average load of pollen a bee collects per trip is between 11-29mg. It takes 3-18 minutes to collect a pollen load, with between 6-8 trips per day.
What Does Bee Pollen Contain?
Generally speaking bee pollen contains 35% proteins, of which approximately half is in the form of free amino acids which can be assimilated immediately by the body (10 different types). A further 40% of the content is made up of various forms of natural sugars, 5% is fats, 3% is minerals and oligo-elements (carriers of calcium, phosphorous, magnesium, iron, copper, manganese) 3 to 4% moisture (water) totaling 86%, the remainder is composed of trace elements, only a few of which have been identified (amines, nicotinic acid, pantothenic acid, folic acid, biotin, cyanocobalamin). We find the B complex vitamins in large quantities and also vitamins A, C, and E. There is no doubt that bee pollen contains many other active ingredients not yet known.
What Are The Benefits?
It is believed that weight for weight, bee pollen contains more protein than accepted sources such as meat, fish, eggs, and dairy products. Pollen contains very important enzymes for the human organism taking part as a biological catalysts. Dr. Joirisch (1) says that bee pollen;" contains highly prophylactic and therapeutic properties. It is a strong biological regenerative powers for the organism". He found that older people who took regular amounts of bee pollen " seemed to enjoy better restoration of morale, a sense of emotional well-being and actual physical health"
A teaspoon of pollen is equal to the protein contained in an 8oz steak
Pollen contains twenty-two basic elements. The human body is composed of twenty-two elements which are found in only one food-bee pollen! When pollen enters your digestive system, its twenty-two elements immediately start to regulate and invigorate the metabolism by supplying any missing substances, such as enzymes not provided by other foods."
