The Wonders of Bee Pollen
By Lady Spirit Moon
Bee pollen contains all known enzymes, at least 22 amino acids, 18 vitamins, 25 minerals, 59 trace elements, 14 fatty acids, 11 carbohydrates and is approximately 25% protein.
Bee pollen is a probiotic for honeybees; honey is their prebiotic. Bee pollen is extremely rich in carotenes, which are metabolic precursors of Vitamin A, is high in B Complex, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and Lecithin.
Bee pollen contains over 50% more protein than beef, yet its fat content is very low. It is also an excellent vegetarian source of protein, typically possessing more of the essential amino acids, pound for pound, than animal proteins like meat, eggs, and dairy products.
It improves brain function, eyes, and the digestive tract; strengthens capillaries and protects the body against the negative effects of chemotherapy.
Just a few grains ingested can detect allergies.
