What is bee pollen?
Bees make granules each composed of a mixture of pollen spores, bee’s alimentary enzymes, and honey. Then carry these granules to hive’s honeycomb where they ferment into “bee bread,” which feeds a bee colony.
Why bee pollen is precious?
Bee Pollen contains at least 22 amino acids, 18 vitamins, 25 minerals, 59 trace elements, 11 enzymes or co-enzymes, 14 fatty acids, 11 carbohydrates and approximately 25 % protein. Bee pollen is extremely rich in carotenes, which are metabolic precursors of vitamin A. It contains over 250 biologically active substances, including proteins, carbs, lipids, fatty acids, vitamins, minerals, enzymes, bioflavenoides and antioxidants (2).
The bees must have added some mysterious goodness of their own that cannot be copied and replaced by any man-made food!
