Bee pollen benefits have been used for improving health and wellness since ancient times and were well known to the Egyptians, Romans, and Greeks! For centuries bee pollen has been consumed by many cultures not only for its numerous therapeutic properties in treating disease but as a significant source of nourishment. It’s highly nutritious whole-food nature has earned it a ‘super-food’ status along with titles like “Food of the gods”.
Bee pollen is one of the most nutritious foods on the planet!
It is a highly concentrated package of all the essential nutritional components that you need to live!
Hippocrates (460 – 377 B.C.), the first physician to concentrate on preventing disease as well as treating it, wrote of the benefits of bee pollen. Western trained doctors in Europe have, over the last century, prescribed bee pollen to treat bacterial and viral infections, along with colds and flues (due to its antibiotic properties).
More recently, physicians and scientist’s world wide have begun taking a much closer look at bee pollen benefits in treating a wide range of medical conditions.
Bee pollen is created by bees from the pollen of the male stamen of flowers. Worker bees collect and transport the pollen granules back to their nest within specially arranged hairs on their hind legs called ‘pollen baskets’.
Since bee pollen derives from plant origin its chemical composition will vary somewhat depending on plant source, season and geographic location. Approximately 50% of its structure comprises polysaccharides (carbohydrates), followed by 35% amino acids and proteins, 2% fatty acids and 3% minerals and vitamins.
Pollen contains over 5,000 enzymes and co-enzymes, far more than is naturally present in any other food!
Bee pollen is denser in protein than any source from animals. This can provide a much safer source of protein without the worry of high intakes of saturated fats (not to mention the numerous established links between animal proteins and cancer). Bee pollen is a concentrated source of the B vitamin complex – this provides energy. This is why bee pollen products are usually marketed as energy supplements or ‘energizers’.
The vitamin B complex, along with vitamins A, C, D, E, selenium, lecithin and powerful phytochemicals (carotenoids and bioflavonoids) make bee pollen a potent source of antioxidants
The various therapeutic health benefits of bee pollen are believed to largely stem from the antioxidant and disease preventing/curing properties of bioflavonoids and carotenoids.
Bee pollen is similar to a number of unique medicinal herbs and herbal extracts in that it offers multiple health benefits which have been thoroughly documented over many years. The most common of these benefits are:
energy weight loss / appetite suppressant stamina allergies antibiotic sexual function / impotence / infertility asthma chronic fatigue immune system booster prostate diseases menopause anti aging / longevity recovery from chronic illness
( Side effects: for males may works like healthy Viagra due to high amount of vitamins, proteins and minerals)
Apitherapy, a recognized form of complementary and alternative medicine, involves the use of bee products to prevent or heal medical conditions. Apitherapy recognizes all bee pollen benefits and is used in the treatment and cure of over 500 diseases and illnesses!
Chinese medicine has also recognized bee pollen benefits for thousands of years.
Practitioners, especially those in Europe, also prescribe bee pollen for hay fever or allergic rhinitis as well as mouth sores, rheumatism, painful urination, prostate conditions and radiation sickness.
Besides being most well known as a natural energy booster, bee pollen supplements are also popular as weight loss products. The pollen acts on the hypothalamus in the brain which controls dietary drive and this leads to a feeling of fullness. Appetite is naturally suppressed! Additionally, bee pollen contains lecithin which both stimulates and normalizes poor metabolism, and aids in dissolution of body fats.
Bee pollen is popular with athletes because it is believed to positively impact on endurance, strength, and speed. A common belief is that bee pollen enhances recovery from a training load and improves endurance for repeat exertion.
Unfortunately there has been little clinical research to support this. Study at Louisiana State University revealed no significant improvement in either training or performance. Despite the lack of scientific back-up to support bee pollen benefits for enhanced sporting performance, it is nonetheless in widespread use by many high performance athletes and those interested in sustaining and enhancing performance.
And so the list of bee pollen benefits goes on. Bee pollen has been shown to be effective in lowering cholesterol levels in many people! Since a large percentage of the adult population have dangerously high cholesterol levels, this bee pollen benefit is appealing to many.
Consumer reports from satisfied users most commonly refer to bee pollen benefits such as improved night vision, relief from chronic fatigue syndrome, better immune function, improved memory and alertness, reduction of chronic symptoms and allergies, relief of certain skin disorders, improved skin appearance, and of course more vitality and energy.
It seems fair to say that for many people bee pollen benefits extend into virtually every area of their health and well being.
From a preventative health care perspective there is an ever increasing upward trend in the use of bee pollen for nourishment and the enhancement of overall wellness. Since bee pollen contains all the nutrients needed to sustain life, health conscious consumers have readily adopted its use as a functional and complete food.
Note: Bee pollen benefits, although substantial, should not be relied upon predominantly as a replacement for good dietary and health practices!
A dosage of from 15 to 20 grams (one-half ounce) will usually meet the Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) for adults. Approximately 30 to 32 grams are necessary in order to anabolic ally strengthen and tone a person, whereas anywhere from 15 to 20 grams are essential for the proper maintenance of good health in active adults.
Children from 3 to 5 years of age require 12 grams of pollen, while those from 6 to 12 years need 16 grams daily.
The daily dose can be increased up to 35 grams (1 ounce equals 28 grams), considering the differences in age, weight and overall state of health. This dosage will also provide greater preventative maintenance against a lack of essential amino acids.
Do not begin using bee pollen with a dose larger than 1 tablespoonful, twice a day. After one week, gradually increase the dosage from 1 tablespoonful up to 4 tablespoonful (1 tablespoonful equals approximately one-fourth ounce). One ounce of bee pollen (4 tablespoonfuls) is equivalent to three cooked meals in terms of nutrient content.
While this small dosage acts as a mild hypotensive, it also possesses stimulant properties and may upset your gastro-intestinal system if taken in large quantities during the initial stages (due to its powerful cleansing effects).
Pollen should be ingested preferably on an empty stomach, and there is no danger of toxicity from ingesting it (as it is an unadulterated product).
Pollen gathered for human consumption requires careful processing techniques, including drying, cleaning and sorting. Bee pollen should be selected for its quality and flavor, especially since the amount of flavor in any given food usually determines the levels of nutrient content. Proper processing requires meticulous handling, and poor quality pollens (that are inexpensively priced) should always be avoided. The overall taste of bee pollen ranges from bitter to sweet, depending upon the particular variety or species of flower from which it was obtained.
Pollen should be kept refrigerated or stored in a cool, dry place at all times in order to protect its vital qualities. Cooking is not advisable, due to the destruction of essential enzymes caused by excessive heat.
Bee pollen should be consumed in its pure form at least 30 minutes before meals, especially if it is being used for the purpose of losing excess weight. It can also be mixed with honey, thereby producing a candy substitute if made into cakes and dried under direct sunlight. Pollen also becomes a healthy substitute for mother's milk when combined with nut milks, such as almond milk. It can also be blended into fruit or vegetable dressing, smoothies , fruit shakes or you can dissolve pollen in your favorite herb tea, fruit or vegetable juice (e.g., pineapple and tomato juice blend well together). Pollen may also be sprinkled onto ice cream, granola, sandwiches or salads, or take a banana and dip it directly into the pollen. You may also wish to dissolve 1 teaspoonful of pollen and 1 teaspoonful of honey in a cup of hot water and drink before breakfast.
Pollen may be consumed in its natural pellet form, or it may be pulverized by the use of a blender or coffee grinder in order to incorporate it into butter, jam, or a mixture of butter and honey.
Bee Pollen should never be purchased in fine powder, tablet or capsule form, as any commercial pulverizing process of pollen is usually accompanied by a certain amount of adulteration.
