Therapeutic virtues:

Considered the most complete and valuable food in Nature, pollen contains all the amino acids essential to the human body. It has a large number of vitamins and a high amount of protein:
-Minerals and trace elements: calcium, chlorine, copper, iron, magnesium, carbohydrates, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, silicon, sulfur, and fiber plant hormones.
-Many vitamins : A, B1, B2, B3, (or vitamin PP), B5, B6, B7, B8 (or vitamin H), B9, B12, C, D, E and provitamin A.
-Enzymes: amylase, invertase and some phosphatases..
- Rutin, a substance that accelerates growth and increases capillary resistance, and also has vasoprotectants and antithrombotic effects. It stimulates the functioning of all organs and has anti-oxidant and anti-anemic properties.

Given its composition, pollen is a toning, rebalancing and a detoxifying nutrient, effective in cases of fatigue, convalescence, loss of appetite, in various deficiency states and premature aging, circulatory disorders, constipation, prostatism, anxiety, depressive disorder, skin fragility, hair loss and capillary fragility.

The effects of pollen ingestion will not be felt until after a course of several weeks.

The shell of the pollen grains is very thick and many of them are not assimilated when pollen is consumed directly.

We therefore recommend immersing the grains in liquids or mix them with food (fruit juice, tea, yogurt ....) so the seeds can better dissolve and release their contents.

Did you know?

Up to 75,000 pollen grains can be found on the body of a bee during summer!

The pollen everyone knows, usually seen flying in the wind, is the flower’s fertilizing "dust". Bees collect pollen by grinding them with their legs and making them into balls. It is essential to bee colonies, it is somehow the bread of bees, their main source of protein. Without it, there would be no food for the brood and larvae would never see the day.

Although the pollen requirements of a colony are high, it is possible to harvest the product under certain conditions and in limited quantities, using special trapdoors installed behind the flight board of the hive (bee is forced on a grid where their legs get stuck and thus losing their pollen ball). Up to 25 kg of pollen can be harvested from a beehive in a single season. Sometimes, foragers can bring more than 1 kg of pollen a day. When you learn that it takes about 150 little balls of pollen to make a single gram, it becomes clearer how much work the bees went through.
