Superfood Profile – Bee Pollen

Bee pollen is the most complete food found in nature, and its incredible nutritional and medicinal value has been known for centuries. It’s collected from flowering plants by bees very discriminately and formed into granules.

Amazingly, bee pollen contains the richest known source of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, hormones, enzymes and fats, as well as significant quantities of natural antibiotics. It’s a natural antidote for fighting allergies, particularly hay-fever and sinusitis.

Research shows that pollen counteracts the signs of aging and increases both mental and physical capability. Most of the known vitamins in pollen exist in perfect proportion, which increases their value even further.

The following is a brief nutritional profile of bee pollen. All values are per 100 grams.
