I’ve Heard of Eating Honey, But Bee Pollen?
Honey is still a sugar, yes, but it is better for you than eating refined sugar, as it has trace amounts of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, not to mention it tastes so much better.
Honey is appropriate to cook and bake with, but when it comes to bee pollen, it is not recommended due to the destruction of essential enzymes caused by excessive heat.
However, you can eat it raw, without cooking it, and it even tastes good too!
Why is bee pollen good for you? Well, it contains:
- All essential amino acids
- Full spectrum of vitamins especially vitamins B12 and E; and significant amounts of B1, B2, B3, B5, C, and vitamin D
- Various minerals including calcium, manganese, phosphorous, iron, sodium, potassium, aluminium, magnesium and copper, trace elements and enzymes (including antioxidants), and co-enzymes, pigments, xanthophylls, carotenes, and sterols, phytosterols, lignans (dibenzyl butanes) isoflavones and flavonoids
- Hormone precursors (which stimulate hormone production and help anti-aging)
- Carbohydrates and fatty acids
Most often people take it as a supplement to their diet in capsule form, mainly because I don’t think most people would know what to do with bee pollen in the kitchen. By the way, sprinkle it on cereals, yogurt, salads, or mix it in with drinks, smoothies, juices…So many ways to enjoy it raw!
I have found a really reliable source from JOEBEES, which provides all-natural, free-range bee pollen as a nutritious solution for a fast-paced world.
Joe’s capsules provide “total nutrition” to support every cell in your body.
Why? Because your body responds to the all-natural ingredients listed above that are found in bee pollen – ingredients that are missing from your diet yet are necessary for living a long and healthy life.
Okay, so it’s good for me…What will it do for me?
Bee pollen in your diet will increase your energy, strength, immune system, give you better sleep, and more stamina!
