Regular consumption of pollen can contribute to health in many ways, reducing inflammation and stimulating the immune & metabolic systems.
The nutrients in pollen can help correct metabolic dysfunction and regulate appetite. In addition, pollen’s antioxidants help neutralize free radicals and slow down the aging process. Pollen also helps strengthen capillaries, lower cholesterol levels and boosts liver function. Finally, the well rounded nutrients in pollen help promote mental wellness! You may find that after consuming pollen regularly for two weeks, you notice less “brain fog”.
Pollen analysis has shown that pollen is a storehouse of proteins, essential fatty acids, vitamins, minerals, lipids, sugars, enzymes, carotenoids and bioflavonoids. No other food contains as many elements necessary for life as pollen does.
Pollen contains all 28 minerals that the human body requires for healthy function. Pollen has high levels of vitamins A, B, C, D and E. It is about 35% protein, with half of these in the form of essential amino acids that our bodies easily digest. 40% of pollen is various types of natural sugars, 5% is fats, and 3% is minerals and oligo-elements (which carry minerals). 3% is moisture, and the remaining materials are trace elements such as folic acid and biotin.
Why fresh frozen? Fresh frozen allows you to consume the pollen in the same state that the bees collected it. Drying processes can over-dry and over-heat pollen. Over-drying makes it more difficult to dissolve into smoothies, etc. In the case of accidental overheating, the health benefits of pollen are degraded. Fresh frozen pollen can be stored in the freezer and remains easy to scoop out small amounts as needed. It can be safely stored in the fridge for a week or so, but should ideally be kept frozen.
