Bee pollen has been used for thousands of years for its healing properties and beneficial effects. Ancient texts record its use in both Egypt and China. The fathers of Western medicine, Hippocrates, Pliny the Elder, and Pythagoras, are said to have regularly prescribed it as a treatment for various ailments.Bee Pollen contains 18 amino acids, more than a dozen vitamins, 11 enzymes or co-enzymes, 28 minerals, 11 carbohydrates and 14 beneficial fatty acids. Considered by many to be a super-food, it actually contains all the nutrients necessary to sustain life.
"Bee pollen exerts a profound biological effect," said Dr. Lars-Erik Essen, a well-known Swedish physician, explained. "It seems to prevent premature aging of the cells and stimulates growth of new skin tissue. It offers effective protection against dehydration and injects new life into dry cells. It smooths away wrinkles and stimulates a life-giving blood supply to all skin cells."Dr. Essen reported that whether taken internally or used externally, bee pollen can help stimulate cell renewal and nourish the skin. He said this was due to the high concentration of RNA and DNA along with a myriad of other components that aid in the healing process. Dr. Essen has used it to successfully treat patients with acne, and also recommends its use to patients for its many anti-aging properties.
Bee Pollen is also widely regarded as the ultimate all natural food supplement, boosting energy and providing nutritional support to every cell in the body. Most commercially available pollens are based on 3-30% extraction of nutrients from the pollen kernel.Known as the ‘Rolls Royce’ of pollens Potentiated Pollen, through a proprietary manufacturing process, enables the release of up to 95% of all available nutrients from the pollen shell.
Jeff Cook, founder of NATUREBEE, New Zealand’s leading manufacturer and exporter of Potentiated Pollen states, "Nutritionally speaking, bee pollen contains all of the nutrients, vitamins, enzymes and anti-oxidants necessary to strengthen immunity, boost vitality and sustain health. As science progresses and is able to further breakdown this amazing substance, it wouldn’t surprise me if even more benefits are discovered. I recommend it to anyone, and everyone, as a supplement to boost a healthier, happier life."
