Botanical Name: Polen granulado
- English: Bee pollen
Bee pollen is a holistic remedy used throughout the world. Unfortunately, the vast number of ways that pollen can be used is often overlooked.
Honey bees make Bee pollen and are the food of the young bee. It is considered one of nature’s most completely nourishing foods as eating contains nearly all nutrients required by humans. Bee gathered pollens are rich in proteins, free amino acids, and vitamins, including the B-complex, and folic acid.
Bee pollen is a complete food and contains many elements that products of animal origin do not possess. Bee pollen is richer in proteins than any animal source. It contains more amino acids than beef, eggs, 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.
It is important to understand that one teaspoon of the dose of pollen takes 1 bee working 8 hours a day for one month together. Each bee pollen pellet contains over two million flowers pollens grains and one teaspoonful contains over 2.5 billion grains of flower pollen.
How Should Bee Pollen Be Consumed?
Bee pollen is a food and acts faster and more effectively when taken at mealtime and especially with fruit, which lets it gently perform a little cleansing of the intestinal flora.
A spoonful at breakfast, preferably taken with a piece of fruit: the fruit fibers (raw hemicellulose) reinforce the activity of the fresh pollen. You'll be pleased to know that beekeepers are able to remove pollen from hives without harming the bees or disturbing their routine.
You should consult with a qualified healthcare practitioner before using any herbal products, particularly if you are pregnant, nursing, or on any medications.
