Let food be thy medicine…..let your medicine be thy food.
Why is Bee Pollen so good for you? For starters, Bee Pollen is a natural allergy relief and is responsible for many health benefits. It is rich in vitamins, minerals, proteins, lipids and fatty acids, enzymes, carotenoids, and bioflavonoids making it an antibacterial, antifungal, AND antiviral agent that strengthens the capillaries, reduces inflammation, stimulates the immune system and lowers cholesterol naturally.
Did you know bee pollen is mentioned 68 times in the Bible? Many Greek philosophers claimed that bee pollen held the secret to eternal youth! The original Greek Olympic athletes used pollen rich honey as part of their training diets.
Bee pollen contains more protein than any animal source and more amino acids than equal weight of eggs or beef and those are just some of the top bee pollen benefits.
Bee pollen is an excellent source of super food nutrition for your body and can be easily added to your fruit smoothies or incorporated in your salad or dressings. I’ve also found it to be good in fresh squeezed grapefruit and orange juice to sip on through the day. But remember when using bee pollen in your food sources never blend it. Bee pollen loses its molecular structure and value when modified from its original source. Sprinkle it on top or into your food, ALWAYS.
Other high point benefits of Bee Pollen include:
· Reduces Inflammation
· Acts as an antioxidant (wonderful for cancer, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and hypertension.
· Protects against liver toxicity
· Boosts the immune system (HELLO COVID and FLU)!!!
· Serves as a dietary supplement
· Relieves menopausal symptoms
· Helps to relieve stress
· Promotes Healing (remedy for burn relief) and promotes blood circulation.
Make sure you get a good and reputable source of bee pollen that is free from pesticides and chemicals. Also, bee pollen is best stored in the refrigerator/freezer to hold its potency and health benefits over time. I’ll take a picture and post the brand I use.
