Information about Bee Pollen

 

Bee Pollen is pollen from flowers that is collected by honey bees. Pollen granules stick to the bees' legs and other body parts as they help themselves to nectar (the precursor of honey) inside the flowers.



Pollen is the male seed of flowers. It is required for the fertilization of the plant. The tiny particles consist of 50/1,000-millimeter corpuscles, formed at the free end of the stamen in the heart of the blossom. Every variety of flower puts forth a dusting of pollen. Many orchard fruits and agricultural food crops do too.

Bee Pollen is frequently called "the perfect food" as it contains all of the essential amino acids and many vitamins and minerals. Bee Pollen is the food of the young bee and it is approximately 40% protein. It is considered one of nature's most completely nourishing foods. It contains nearly all the nutrients required by humans. About half of its protein is in the form of free amino acids that are ready to be used directly by the body. Such highly assailable protein can contribute significantly to one's protein needs.

It has been estimated that honeybee pollen contains over 5,000 enzymes and coenzymes, many times more than any other food. Enzymes in the body are not only necessary for perpetual healing and digestion but for life itself. Without enzymes, life is impossible. Also, enzymes protect against premature aging. It has been reliably stated that only honeybee pollen contains all known enzymes in perfect proportion and perfect balance.

Gathering pollen is not as easy as it sounds. Once a honeybee arrives at a flower, she settles herself in and nimbly scrapes off the powdery loose pollen and the stamen with her jaws and front legs, moistening it with a dab of honey she brought with her from the hive. The enlarged and broadened tarsal segments of her legs have a thick trimming of bristles, called pollen combs. The bee uses these combs to brush the gold powder from her coat and legs in mid-flight. With a skillful pressing movement of her auricle, which is used as a hammer, she pushes the gathered gold into her baskets. Her pollen baskets, surrounded by a fringe of long hairs, are simply concave areas located on the outside of her legs. When the bee's baskets are fully loaded, the microscopic golden dust has been tamped down into a single golden grain, or granule.

Bee pollen has also been claimed to improve athletic and sexual performance; slow the aging process; promote weight loss; prevent infection, allergy and cancer; and alleviate more than 60 other health problems.

One of the most interesting facts about bee pollen is that is cannot be synthesized in a laboratory. When researchers take away a bee's pollen filled comb and feed her manmade pollen, the bee dies even though all the known nutrients are present in the lab-produced synthesized food.

Honeybees do double duty. They are programmed to gather pollen and carry it back to the hive as food for the colony. However, even more important as far as humans are concerned, they are also responsible for the pollination of more than 80 percent of green growing things. As bees buzz from blossom to blossom, microscopic pollen particles coat their stubby little bodies so densely that they sometimes look like little yellow fuzz balls. When they arrive at the next flower, a portion of the live golden dust is transferred to that blossom and pollination is accomplished.

Bee Pollen contains all the essential components of life. The percentage of rejuvenating elements in bee pollen remarkably exceeds those present in brewer's yeast and wheat germ. Bee Pollen corrects the deficient or unbalanced nutrition, common in present-day diets consuming incomplete foods, often added with chemical ingredients, which expose us to physiological problems as various as they are numerous.

Nutrient deficiencies and all the health problems they cause are recognized worldwide as a growing problem. Because Bee Pollen contains all the nutrients needed to sustain life, it is being used on an ever-larger scale for human nourishment and health.

Benefits of Local Bee Pollen

Both men and women benefit from taking Bee Pollen but for men, researchers have recently found that bee pollen is very effective in helping prevent prostate problems. This is one of the best Bee Pollen benefits for men.

In addition, over 50% of men who were given Bee Pollen in a study of Bee Pollen benefits experienced a dramatic improvement in sperm count and were able to perform better sexually...after just one month of taking bee pollen.

It is reported that Bee Pollen in the diet acts to normalize cholesterol and triglyceride levels in the blood: Upon the regular ingestion of Bee Pollen, a reduction of cholesterol and triglycerides was observed. High-density lipoproteins (HDL) increased while low-density lipoproteins (LDL) was decreased. A normalization of blood serum cholesterol is also seen.

Bee Pollen benefits extend to almost every area of health that you can think of. Some really amazing medical results have been achieved. Bee Pollen helps to improve your immune system and detoxifies your body and much more.

There have also been some studies that show it may help in alleviating allergies. If these claims are to be true, as many believe, than ONLY Local Bee Pollen would be instructive for assisting allergies. Local Bee Pollen comes from your neighborhood or region from plants and flowers that you are exposed to. Taking Bee Pollen capsules or taking Bee Pollen Granules collected from China or some other far off place would not have nearly the effect Local Bee Pollen would. Additionally, Bee Pollen capsules frequently contain other additives than all our all-natural, unprocessed never does.

Bee Pollen benefits also extend to the area of weight loss. Bee Pollen has shown to have an ability to help in fat loss by rectifying a chemical imbalance that many people with weight problems tend to have.

Athletes often use Bee Pollen for endurance, strength, stamina, and mental clarity.

Freshness

Just as local raw honey is far superior to store-bought honey, Bee Pollen from our hives is significantly different than the stuff you might see or be currently purchasing in a health-food store.

Firstly, our Bee pollen is not "cut" with additives of any sort. It is 100% Bee Pollen straight from the hive. Many people heat or air dry their Bee Pollen but it has been proven that heating it over 110 degrees (f) will decay many of the health properties. We collect the pollen directly from the hive using a trap specifically meant to capture a portion of the Bee Pollen directly from the bees' legs.

This is collected into a drawer at the bottom of the hive and then placed immediately in our freezer. It is then packaged in small batches to keep it as fresh as possible. All of our Bee Pollen comes from this year's harvest, never older than that. It is truly the most fresh, most healthful Bee Pollen you can possibly purchase!

A half-pound of Bee Pollen in a glass jar is $12.50

As always with our product you get that special attention and love to our products and only local producers can offer.
Enjoy!
