Bee pollen is a ball or pellet of field-gathered "Pollen", made by honeybees and is the food of the young bee. In its composition, there are about 250 substances, including vitamins, minerals, proteins, lipids and fatty acids, enzymes, carotenoids and bioflavonoids.
Forager bees that gather pollen do not eat it themselves, since they stop producing the proteolytic enzymes necessary to digest it when they transition to foraging.
Known as an apitherapeutic product, it contains groups of chemical compounds that are made by bees and used for medicinal purposes.
The inhibitory activities of bee pollen are similar to those found in fermented foods, such as miso, cheese and vinegar. It is considered one of nature’s most completely nourishing foods as it contains nearly all nutrients required by humans.
Bee Pollen grains depend on the plant species; they differ in shape, colour from bright yellow to black, size, and weight.
• One of nature's most complete nourishing foods, it's rich in proteins (approx 40% protein), plus excellent sources of free amino acids, vitamins including the entire Vitamin B complex and Folic Acid.
• Boosts immunity to allergens thanks to high levels of Vitamins C, D and E.
• Bee Pollen also contains lecithin which helps to eliminate body fat as well as stimulating the body's metabolism to allow further fat burning. A great natural energiser, many athletes use this to boost their endurance and energy when training.
