Bee Pollen for increased energy levels, stamina and immunity

What is Bee Pollen?

Honeybees fly from flower to flower collecting thousands of pollen grains that stick to the tiny hairs on the bee’s back legs. They travel back to their hives with the pollen and feed it to their young.

Pollen is a very fine powder, distinctive to the flower that it comes from. Flowers contain different types of pollen and the pollen that bees collect is just one of these. Pollen is the very core of nature. It is where all life begins, making it a perfect addition to your daily health program.

A lot of people are concerned about taking bee pollen because they have an allergy to bees, however the only relation bee pollen has to bees is that the bees collect the pollen from the flower & carry it to the bee hive, where it is collected.

Why take Bee Pollen?

Pollen is one of the richest & most complete food in nature, containing a wide variety of essential vitamins, minerals, enzymes, protein, amino acids, as well as other non-isolated & identified trace elements.

This Superfood also has the ability to be absorbed straight from the stomach into the blood stream, with virtually no digestion.

What elements does Bee Pollen contain?

It is approximately 25% complete protein, containing at least 18 amino acids. It contains high levels of iron, zinc, magnesium & copper, is extraordinarily rich in most of the B vitamins & contains only a few calories per serving.

What are the benefits of taking Bee Pollen?

Scientific studies have shown that a regular consumption of bee pollen can dramatically increase your energy levels & stamina and build up your immunity, thereby increasing your resistance to disease. Because it is very easily absorbed, the beneficial effects are noticed quickly.

It can also help reduce prostate problems, maximise your health and vitality and improve digestion. It contains naturally occurring antioxidants.
