Superfoods Bee Pollen
Bee pollen is one of the oldest, most researched, healing foods on the planet. The health benefits of bee pollen have been known for thousands of years. Early Egyptian civilizations used it as a physical rejuvenator and medicine. It was a mainstay of traditional Chinese herbal medicine
Bee pollen is one of the healthiest and most powerful superfoods. Its complete nutrition is beneficial for anyone looking to improve their mental and physical health, and overall well being. “Bee pollen” is actually pollen from flowers that is collected from bees as they enter the hive.
Bee Pollen is very rich in vitamins, trace elements, enzymes and amino acids. It contains 18 amino acids, RNA, DNA, vitamins A, B-1, B-2, niacin, B-6, B-12, inositol, folic acid, pantothenic acid, C, D, E and K, rutin and other bioflavonoids, beta-carotene, choline, lecithin, calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron, selenium, zinc, numerous enzymes, phytosterols and many other nutritional factors.
People who consume high-quality bee pollen usually experience an increase in energy. This is precisely why Bee Pollen is the favorite of many athletes who use it to help increase their endurance, stamina, speed and strength before workouts or competitions and to recover more swiftly after strenuous exercise.
Bee Pollen also appears to be effective in helping people who suffer from mental fatigue, depression, stress and the inability to concentrate. This natural energy food often helps to improve mental clarity and the capacity to concentrate for longer periods of time.
Many people with allergies have found relief by ingesting bee pollen. It has been known to reduce the production of histamine which can cause allergic responses such as hay fever. It can also help strengthen the respiratory system and provide the protein that helps the body build a natural defense shield against allergic responses.
Bee Pollen can be sprinkled on your salad or added to hummus or your favorite nut butter. It can also be added to your green drink or green smoothie. I recommend 1-2 teaspoons of Bee Pollen per day. The brand of Bee Pollen I recommend is YS Organic Bee Farms. It can be purchased at most health food stores.
A small number of people have been known to be allergic to bee and/or plant Pollen. To make sure you are not allergic; try a minute amount on the skin or the tip of the tongue before beginning the recommended dosage. If any sneezing, discomfort or rash occurs, discontinue use.
