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.
