Pollen is made 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. Bee-gathered pollens
are rich in proteins (approximately 40% protein), free amino acids,
vitamins, including 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 more rich in proteins
than any animal source. It contains more amino acids than beef, eggs, or
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 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.
Dr. Gabriel Cousens MD, has listed bee pollen as one of his 22 most
recommended food energies. Bee Pollen can be used medicinally for a wide
range of conditions from prostate health to skin conditions and can
help correct specific nutritional imbalances within the body
