Bee Pollen is one of nature's healthiest and most powerful "superfoods". Bee Pollen is the male seeds of a flower blossom which has been gathered by the worker bees and to which special elements from the bees has been added. The bees collected and stored the pollen in their hives. It is collected on the legs of bees and formed into granules as they move from the flower to flower looking for nectar. The bees secrete nectar and special enzymes into the flower pollen to create what we know as "bee pollen". The pollen is usually collected by placing a special device at the entrance of the beehives that brushes it from the hind legs of the bees into a collection vessel.
Bee Pollen contains most of the known nutrients, including all of those necessary for human survival. It is rich in minerals and vitamins, including calcium, magnesium, manganeses, patassium, zinc, riboflavin, thiamin and vitamins A, B6, C, D, E and K. Because of its B vitamin complex, bee pollen is often used to increase energy and vitality. Athletes often use bee pollen for endurance, strength, stamina and mental clarity. It also contains biotin, a vitamin that is important for the skin, hair and nails. Bee pollen also provides protein, essential oils, essential amino acids, flavonoids and carotenoids, which are important for the synthesis of vitamins A in the body.
