Bee Pollen


Bee Pollen is collected by honeybees, and is the food of the young bee. It is considered one of nature's most completely nourishing foods as it contains nearly all nutrients required by humans to sustain life. Bee-gathered pollens are rich in proteins (approximately 40% protein), contains 21 of the 24 essential amino acids, vitamins, including B-complex, and folic acid. Among a host of other rare minerals.

Bee pollen is natures most complete food containing many elements that products of animal oridinal do not possess.
Bee pollen is the richest animal source for protein and contins more amino acides than beef, eggs or cheese of equal weight!

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. This diversity makes it hard to pinpoint exact amounts of certain trace elements found within the pollen so measurements are a calculated average.
