100% Australian pure bee pollen is known as a complete food. It contains all the vital nutrients our body needs including vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates, lipids, and protein. Bee pollen benefits the body in many ways. It is an antioxidant and known to assist with inflammation, liver health, immunity, menopause, and stress, and has healing properties when used in salves to treat burns and skin conditions. Due to its rich nutritional content, it can be used as a supplement to promote good health in winter and even maintain a healthy metabolism. Studies show bee pollen contains more protein than any animal source and more amino acids than equal weight of eggs or beef.
Bee pollen is extra special due to the amount of time it takes for bees to create it. One teaspoon of bee pollen takes one bee working eight hours a day for one month to gather! Each bee pollen pellet contains over two million flower pollen grains, and one teaspoonful contains over 2.5 billion grains of flower pollen.
Here are some of the reasons to enjoy bee pollen in winter (and all year round!).
Bee pollen helps fight disease and infection
The antioxidant properties in bee pollen can potentially provide protection from some cancers, heart disease, and type 2 diabetes. These antioxidants especially protect you from the damage caused by free radicals and may also help lower heart disease risk factors such as bad cholesterol and lipid oxidation.
Bee pollen has healing properties
With its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, bee pollen can help with wound healing. Bee pollen’s antimicrobial properties may also prevent infections, a major risk factor that can compromise the healing process for scrapes, cuts, abrasions, and burns.
Bee pollen helps liver function
Bee pollen helps the liver in breaking down toxic substances. Its antioxidant properties keep bacteria and infections away as well as remove toxins from the liver.
Bee pollen is an immune booster
Bee pollen benefits your immune system and helps you fight diseases. Its antimicrobial and antibacterial properties help in killing infection-causing and harmful bacteria.
Bee pollen is a stress reliever
The nutrients in bee pollen encourage blood supply to the nervous tissues, which can enhance mental capacity and strengthens the nervous system. This can also help in relieving stress.
Bee pollen helps healthy skin
Bee pollen has several nutrients beneficial for your skin. It aids in healing the rejuvenation of your skin, which is especially beneficial for the winter months. Studies also shown that it improves blemishes and wrinkles and prevent darkening of the skin.
Bee pollen contains many minerals, vitamins, and nutrients that are beneficial for your physical and mental health. It can provide you with all these benefits if you include it in your daily diet. Nutritionists suggest 3-5 teaspoons daily for adults and 1-2 teaspoons for children.
