Revitalizing Bee Pollen

Bee pollen, or ‘bee bread’, is nature’s multi-vitamin and a staple food for bees in the hive. It has been used for centuries by the Egyptians, Romans, Chinese and Native Americans internally for its nutritional, energizing and healing properties.

It is equally potent when used as a topical treatment as the Swedish dermatologist Dr. Lars-Erik Essen notes, “external use of bee pollen stimulates cell renewal with its high concentration of nucleic acids RNA and DNA.”

Bee pollen contains all the essential amino acids, 12 vitamins, 28 minerals, 11 enzymes and coenzymes, 14 beneficial fatty acids and 11 carbohydrates. It is also a powerful antioxidant containing compounds chemists call flavonoids and trans-cinnamic acid that the body uses to make its own antibiotics.
