Bee Pollen

Pollen is the male sex cell of flowering plants. Pollen makes up the main diet of bees and is high in nutritional values for humans. The main constituents of pollen are proteins (23% on average), digestible carbohydrates (30%), sugars (26%), fat (approximately 5%), minerals (1.6%) and phenolic compounds (approximately 2%). Meanwhile, certain vitamins, enzymes, amino acids, and other essential micronutrients have been identified in small amounts in pollen. Pollen has been called the only perfectly complete food, since it contains a broad array of essential micronutrients that can be used for human nutrition and even treatment. The primary proven therapeutic effects of pollen are the treatment of prostate problems in men, treatment of allergies, strengthening of the immune system, improvement of physical and sexual performance, regulation of blood pressure, anti-inflammatory properties, and treatment of osteoporosis. Pollen can be used as a useful nutritional supplement in children’s diet to provide all the essential materials necessary for their healthy growth by supporting the proper development of bones and muscles, creating a stronger and more muscular body, and preventing a wide range of nutritional deficiency-related problems and diseases in young and middle-aged individuals.
