Introduction to Pine Pollen: As one of nature's most potent and dense foods, Pine Pollen has found its place as one of our top products. Pine Pollen not only contains a full spectrum of nutrients, it also contains a wide spectrum of specific anti-aging compounds, including bio-available phytosterols (including phyto-androgen and adaptogens), raw amino acids, vitamins, and minerals, and potent antioxidants.
Pine Pollen has a well documented history of use in Chinese and Korean traditional medicine for its strong regenerative and anti-aging effect. Its use dates back at least 2000 years (when it was first mentioned as an anti-ageing tonic). Today, scientific research has shown that Pine Pollen is able to increase and restore energy and help fight fatigue and tiredness, fight and slow down aging, balance the levels of testosterone and other androgen hormones, and serve as a strong adaptogen, assisting the functions of the immune system. Pine Pollen has been shown to serve as an analgesic, fighting systemic and local inflammation.
Pine Pollen and Phytosterols: Phytosterols (including sterols and stanols) are a group of naturally occurring plant-hormones that are similar in structure to cholesterol. Over 200 different types of phytosterols have been identified and have been marketed aggressively since the 1970's for their shown ability to lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels.
Pine Pollen is unique in that it contains phytosterols which are analogous to the group of male sex hormones known as androgens (learn more about androgen hormones at Wikipedia). This group of phyto-androgens present in Pine Pollen are similar enough to those the body produces to be bio-available--to work within the body. Additionally, Pine Pollen contains several other endocrine system beneficial phytosterols, including gibberellins and brassinosteroids. These are phytosterols exhibit adaptogenic qualities on human health. Adaptogens increase wellness primarily by balancing the endocrine (hormone) system).
While much attention has been paid to Pine Pollen because of how the pine tree is able to mimic some human androgen hormones, in our experience at RAW Forest Foods, it is the combination of phyto-androgens and adaptogens which make Pine Pollen so effective at raising testosterone and balancing estrogen.
