Along with ginseng, goji berries, and wheatgrass juice, pollen is among the most nutritious foods on the planet.
Bee pollen is rich in the B vitamin complex (which gives energy), carotenes, including vitamins C and E, two potent antioxidants, and is made up of approximately 55% carbohydrates. There are many health benefits attributed to bee pollen which have been verified in independent clinical tests all over the world. In Europe, especially Germany, it is very popular as a supplement.
The Chinese too have used it for centuries. Its benefits include increasing energy, increased libido, helps eliminate acne, aids indigestion, eliminating depression, improving blood pressure.
It also used as a topically applied salve (which is good for skin problems).
It is reported that bee pollen in the diet acts to normalize cholesterol and triglyceride levels in the blood.
It's also helpful in lessening the effects of diabetes, and as a weight loss supplement as well.
Perhaps the most noted Bee Pollen benefit is its ability to increase endurance, strength, and even increase mental function. Not surprisingly, for its stamina-giving capabilities, it is much sought after by athletes.
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. Bee pollen is particularly concentrated in all elements necessary for life.
What about the Bee Pollen prostate link, bee pollen high blood pressure help, the popular bee pollen and weight loss connection; what about diabetes and bee pollen and the acne and bee pollen association?
However, like many supplements, bee pollen is almost looked upon as a panacea -- a cure all -- for almost every problem imaginable. (I've never read anything where it can cure disease. Anyone saying that is exaggerating.)
