Bee pollen is the material from which the bees make honey. It is regarded as a full diet product. In other words, it has a very high content of essential nutrients.
Bee-pollen contains all the vitamin Bs, vitamin C, amino acids, polyunsaturated fatty acids, enzymes, carotenes, calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, potassium, iodine, manganese, and protein.
The content of enzymes in bee pollen strengthens the immune system and is probably one of the very rare sources of the intracellular enzyme S.O.D, which is difficult to absorb and which is normally produced in the liver, but certain illnesses can cause a deficiency.
S.O.D is an antioxidant, which - like other antioxidants - can inhibit the poor breathing processes in the body, and thereby strengthen health and vitality. Certain kinds of pollen have been purified from the allergenic substances that might bother some people.
Some people are allergic to bee pollen. Try with small doses, and stop the treatment if you feel discomfort in the shape of sneezing, rashes or the like. Since honey is very sweet, diabetics and people with a low blood sugar level should be extra cautious when taking bee pollen products or other honey products.
Not recommended for children below the age of one.
