Our Fresh Hawaiian Bee Pollen (8-oz) from the Big Island of Hawaii is sweet with a nice texture. Depending on the time of year, it could have pollens from the flowers of Mangos, Ohia-Lehua, Macadamia Nut, Sandlewood, Kaiwe, and other Hawaiian trees.
It’s been suggested that 35 grams of bee pollen daily contains all the nutrients needed by the human body to sustain life. Because bee pollen contains every know nutrient that your body needs, it’s a highly recommended health supplement to “fill in the cracks” when your diet sometimes falls short of ideal. Besides the obvious, though, there are specific health benefits of bee pollen:
– Bee pollen benefits your immune system. Bee pollen contains proteins, mono and polyunsaturated fats, vitamins B, C, D, E, and beta-carotene, calcium, magnesium, selenium, nucleic acids, lecithin, and cysteine, all of which have been proven effective in strengthening the immune system.
– Bee pollen helps build resistance to allergies. Because bee pollen contains traces of the substances that can trigger allergic hay fever, some allergists prescribe it to help lower sensitivity to local pollen.
– Bee pollen helps you to cope more easily with stress. Because it has a full complement of amino acids, essential fatty acids and vitamins that help regulate mood, taking bee pollen supplements can help you control the stress in your life.
– Athletes have used bee pollen for centuries to help them increase their energy and endurance. While studies have yet to bear this out, it makes logical sense that the long-term effects of using a bee pollen supplement are extremely beneficial to athletes. Considering the full spectrum of nutrients that bee pollen provides, it only makes sense that long-term bee pollen supplements would help athletes – who deplete their bodies of necessary nutrients on a regular basis.
