Our Raw Bee Pollen is from British Columbia, Canada, 100% mountain wildflowers and fruit trees. Sun & air dried.
Bee pollen is the finest, most perfect food. When compared to any other food, it contains a higher percentage of all necessary nutrients. It is richer in proteins than any animal source, and contains more amino acids than beef, eggs or cheese of equal weight.
In addition to protein, bee pollen provides more than a dozen vitamins, 28 minerals, 11 enzymes or co-enzymes, 14 beneficial fatty acids, 11 carbohydrates, the full spectrum of vitamins and hormones, and is rich in minerals.
Bee pollen may be used to strengthen the immune system. Other benefits may include a lessening of nausea during chemotherapy, relief of menstrual and menopausal symptoms, decrease in chronic prostrate inflammation, increase of alertness, and reduction of antisocial behavior.
Clinical tests show that orally ingested bee pollen particles are rapidly and easily absorbed--they pass directly from the stomach into the blood stream. Within two hours after ingestion, bee pollen is found in the blood, in cerebral spinal fluids, and in the urine.
Testimonials to the use of bee pollen as food and medicine can be found in the Bible, the Koran, Hindu, Egyptian, and twentieth century literature. Bee Pollen is often referred to as nature's most complete food.
Bee pollen granules need to be soaked for a period of 12 hours before ingesting in order to crack the shells of the individual grains of pollen. Bee pollen granules before a soak are not readily digestible and therefore your body will only absorb 2 – 7%. Once the bee pollen granules are broken down in a soak of water or juice, it increases the absorption rate to nearly 90%! In that, you can appreciate the importance of pre-soaking the granules for maximum affect.
Bee pollen granules may be mixed in with a glass of juice, or sprinkled on a salad. Many bee pollen granule users, tend to sprinkle it over their morning cereal.
We refrigerate our products until we ship them. We recommend refrigeration for a longer shelf-life, which is estimated at roughly 6 months. That being said, the flavor profile may be enhanced when consumed at room temperature.
