Our pure mountain bee pollen is collected from the wild Mountain areas in Southern Spain, where it was voted for having the cleanest skies in Europe. Juan, a 3rd generation beekeeper, carefully harvests pollen once a year in early April. After this time, all pollen that is collected by the bees, is left for the hive.
Bee Pollen is made/collected by honeybees and is the food for the baby bee. It is considered one of nature’s most complete foods as it contains nearly all nutrients required by humans. Bee-gathered pollen’s are rich in proteins (approximately 20-35% protein), free amino acids and vitamins, including the B-complex and folic acid.
Bee pollen is nourishing food that contains many elements that animal products do not possess. Bee pollen is richer in proteins than many animal sources and it contains more amino acids than beef, eggs, or cheese of equal weight. About half of its protein is in the form of free amino acids that are ready to be used directly by the body.
Dr. Gabriel Cousens, MD, has listed bee pollen as one of his 22 most recommended energy foods. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, bee pollen supports the Jing energy system, which is the kidney/adrenal system.
Here are some of the benefits you can receive from using Bee pollen:
The range of nutrients found within bee pollen makes it a great natural energizer. The carbohydrates, protein and B vitamins can help keep you going all day by enhancing stamina and fighting off fatigue.
Bee pollen can be used topically, aiming 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.
Respiratory System & Allergy Response
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.
Pollen reduces the presence of histamine, reducing many allergies. Dr. Leo Conway, MD, of Denver Colorado, reported that 94 percent of his patients were completely free from allergy symptoms once treated with 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.
In addition to healthful vitamins, minerals and proteins, 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.
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.
Supports the Cardiovascular System
Bee Pollen contains large amounts of rutin; an antioxidant bioflavonoid that helps strengthen blood vessels, assists with circulatory problems, and corrects cholesterol levels. Its potent anti-clotting powers could help prevent heart attack and stroke.
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.
Bee pollen stimulates and restores ovarian function, and therefore may be used to assist in accelerating pregnancy. As well as being a hormonal booster, it is also a great aphrodisiac!
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.
