Sometimes referred to as nature's most perfect food, bee pollen is a combination of flower pollen, nectar and the digestive juices of worker bees. Human consumption of bee pollen is praised in the Bible, other religious books, and ancient Chinese and Egyptian texts. Research studies document the therapeutic efficacy and safety of bee pollen. Clinical tests show that orally ingested bee pollen particles are rapidly and easily absorbed--they pass directly from the stomach into the blood stream. Within two hours after ingestion, bee pollen is found in the blood, in cerebral spinal fluids and in the urine. By providing the human body with all the nutritional elements it needs, and in just the right proportions, honey bee pollen allows the body's own healing and rejuvenation mechanisms to perform their normal functions of building, restoring, maintaining and protecting every cell.
With the addition of roughage and water, the human body can survive on honey bee pollen alone. This is because it is the only food which contains, in perfect balance, all 22 known essential nutritional elements (and others yet to be identified), which humans require to achieve and maintain optimum vitality. Bee pollen contains highly bioavailable protein in the form of free amino acids which are directly assimilated by the body. Bee pollen is believed to help rejuvenate the body, stimulate organs and glands and enhance vitality. Bee Pollen helps to relieve brain fatigue and improve alertness and concentration. Bee pollen's ability to consistently and noticeably increase energy levels and enhance recovery makes it a favorite among many world class athletes and those interested in improving physical performance. Bee pollen is also an excellent immune system builder and helps eliminate toxins from the body.
