New Product Announcement
We are excited to announce that we have added Bee Pollen Granules to our product lineup. Bee Pollen is a highly nutritious, all-natural supplement and can be taken in capsule form or granules can be added to your favorite foods.
What is Bee Pollen
Bees collect pollen from plants. They then mix it with nectar from their salivary glands and stores it in little pouches on their legs. Bees take this mix of plant pollen and nectar back to the hive and pack it into honeycomb to be stored and used as food for the colony. Beekeepers attach little pollen traps to the entrance of the hive. As the bee re-enters the hive the trap scrapes some of the pollen off of their legs.
Why Take Bee Pollen
Humans have recognized the nutritional benefits of Bee Pollen for over 2000 years. Ancient Egyptians considered it "life giving dust" and early Native Americans took Bee Pollen on long journeys to sustain a high level of energy. Bee Pollen contains all of the nutritional elements that your body needs to survive. It has all of the essential amino acids, fatty acids and RNA/DNA nucleic acids, and contains 18 vitamins including B complex. Bee Pollen is an excellent source of antioxidants which protect your cells from damage caused by free radicals. Bee Pollen has anti-inflammatory and antibiotic properties and contains enzymes, minerals, carbs, and can be a good source of protein depending on the plants the pollen was collected from.
Besides the impressive nutritional benefits people take Bee Pollen to help with inflammation, to support their immune systems, to boost energy, to alleviate menopausal symptoms, and as a natural aphrodisiac.
How to Take Bee Pollen
You can take one to two teaspoons of bee pollen a day. You can eat it straight, although some people feel that it has a slightly bitter taste. You can mix it into water or fruit juice. Many people like to add it to their breakfast by sprinkling in onto their cereal, mixing it into yogurt, topping their oatmeal with it, or blending it into a smoothie. You can mix it into honey or into applesauce. It is an excellent salad garnish or addition to a salad dressing such as honey mustard, poppy seed, or a slightly sweet vinaigrette. Avoid heating pollen as that destroys some of the beneficial nutrients found in it. If you have never tried bee pollen before start small. As with any food there is a small possibility of an allergic reaction. Put a few granules under your tongue and wait for about 5 minutes. You may proceed to a higher dose if you don’t notice a reaction. Bee pollen granules can be stored for up to two years in your refrigerator. If you don’t like the idea of adding it to your food bee pollen also comes in capsule form.
