What is Bee Pollen? Bee pollen is the dust-sized male seed of a flower blossom, which collects on the back legs of bees as they move from flower to flower. The honeybee collects pollen and mixes it with its own digestive enzymes. One pollen granule contains from one hundred thousand to five million pollen spores each capable of reproducing its entire species! Bee pollen is one of the oldest food supplements known to mankind, dating back to the early Egyptians and ancient Chinese. Even Hippocrates used it as a healing substance over 2500 years ago! Bee pollen, the food of the young bee, contains all the elements essential to life, elements that act together in synergy and which cannot be synthetically reproduced in laboratories.
Why is Bee Pollen called Nature's Miracle Food? Bee pollen contains nearly every known nutrient required for a balanced human diet: 22 amino acids (including eight that are essential and therefore must be supplied through the diet), 27 minerals, most of the known vitamins, and many enzymes. It is 35% protein (more protein than in eggs, beef or cheese), 40% carbohydrate, and 5% fat. It lacks only roughage and water for totally complete and balanced human health and nutrition. Bee pollen is also naturally high in B vitamins and is often taken for increased energy and vitality. Bee pollen is considered one of nature's most completely nourishing foods!
Why are Enzymes so Important? Enzymes control the chemical reactions in the body that are necessary to sustain life. Without enzymes, cells could not function. Things that we take for granted such as being able to metabolize food, having energy, healing, having the ability to digest food, just to name a few, would not be possible without enzymes. Unfortunately, when we cook food, we kill all the enzymes present because enzymes are very heat and light sensitive.
Are There Other Uses for Bee Pollen? Wholistic Bee Power is known to strengthen the immune system because of its antioxidant properties. Through normal cell metabolism, free radicals develop in the body. Free radicals are byproducts of cell metabolism that circulate freely in the body looking to bind with other cells. However, upon binding, these free radicals cause degenerative damage and disease. They are especially associated with aging. The antioxidants found in Wholistic Bee Power block free radicals,decreasing the damage and even reversing much of the cell oxidation. Wholistic Bee Power also helps counteract the effects of radiation and environmental pollutants that weaken the immune system. Athletes often use bee pollen to help increase their strength, stamina, endurance, energy and speed.
Wholistic Bee Power is very rich in live, active enzymes and co-enzymes. Because it is collected from lush fields in the United States and not imported from cheaper sources where product integrity is often compromised through processing and storage, Wholistic Bee Power is rich in all valuable nutrients.
