*What is Bee Pollen?
Flowers have male and female parts, the pollen is the male part of the flower – the seeds that are spread around to help the flower reproduce. Bees come and gather the dusty pollen, and they collect it into pollen “baskets” on their body. They cram a lot of pollen into the baskets, which compresses it and turns it into a granule. The granules of bee pollen are fed to their young, and it is the only source of food for the young bees.
But did you know that bee pollen is considered one of the most well-rounded foods in terms of nourishment – for humans as well as bees?! It has as much as 40% protein, all amino acids that your body can easily use. It has almost all of the nutrients that the human body needs, and it’s packaged in a form that your body can break down and absorb quickly.
Aside from the amazingly high protein content, bee pollen has lots of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. It’s loaded with B-complex vitamins and folic acid (needed by your body to make new cells), as well as rutin – a phytochemical that can help to prevent heart attacks and strokes.
