Man has always been in constant search of ways and means in prolonging life, thus leading to the discovery of a natural perfect food, the bee pollen. It has long been mentioned and praised throughout the centuries in the Bible, the Talmund, the Torah, the Koran, the book of the Hindu, the book of Mormon, and the legends of Russian and Slavic people. As well as in some scrolls and writings found in ancient Greece, Rome, China, and Egypt because of its wondrous healing powers.
Because of this, the modern man developed Palynology, a science involving the study of pollen gathered from bees. Through various research and experiments, bee pollens have been found to contain extremely high quality essential nutrients and components needed in prolonging life, thus branding it as “Nature’s Perfect Food.”
Pollen contains a rich source of vitamins, minerals, proteins and amino acids, hormones, enzymes and fats, as well as significant quantities of natural antibiotics. Some of the vitamins included in pollens are carotenoids, which are later converted inside the body as vitamin A, the B-Complex vitamins like thiamine (vitamin B1), riboflavin (vitamin B2), pyridoxine (vitamin B6), Nicotinic acid, Pantothenic acid, and Folic acid, vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin K, rutin, and other various vitamins like B5, B12, D, biotin, inositol and PABA.
Pollens also have been found to have traces of various minerals like calcium, chlorine, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, silicon, and sulfur. The proteins and amino acids content found are also vast which includes peptones, gloculins, Arginine, Histidine, Isoleusine, Leusine, Lysine, Methionine, Phenylalamine, Threonine, Tryptophane, and Valine. These amino acids and proteins mentioned are the most crucial in a man’s daily diet. They cannot be manufactured or synthesized inside our body but they can be derived from natural sources, like pollens collected from bees, in a consumable form.
In addition, pollens collected from bees also contains lecithin, amines, nuclein, guanine, xanthine, hypoxanthine, vernine, hydrocarbons, sterols, polypetides, ribose, desoxyribose, hexuronic acid, vegetable oils, and other various factors. Certain enzymes that acts as essential
Biological catalysts during the digestive process in our body are also found in pollens. They include amylase, catalase, cozymase, cytochrome, dehydrogenase, diaphorase, diastase, lactic acids, pectase and phosphatase.
The aforementioned nutritional diversity of pollen collected from bees makes it an ideal dietary supplement since the nutrients are very concentrated. The density of nutritional value provides efficient and crucial levels of nutrients even if taken in small amounts. In other words, bee pollen provides low volume but high intensity in nutrition when used as a food supplement. The ever famous scientist Albert Einstein even said, “If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe, then man would only have four years left to live.”
Bee pollen not only increases energy levels of the body, but also rejuvenates the body, corrects the deficient or unbalanced nutrition caused by present day lifestyles, stimulates various organs and glands, aiding recovery from chronic illness, adding weight during recuperation, aiding in weight loss by reducing cravings, reducing addictions even from smoking and drinking, building new blood, preventing infectious diseases, providing protection against radiation as well as providing preventive measures against cancer, enhances vitality, thus providing man with a longer life span. It is indeed worthy as Nature’s Perfect Food.
