Organic Bee Pollen – sustainably sourced, cruelty free

Bee pollen is one of the most unique, powerful, nutritious and complete foods on the face of our planet. It contains a treasure trove of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, amino acids and other nutrients, the widest range to be found anywhere in nature.

Soil AssociationIngredients: 100% sustainably sourced bee pollen
Country of Origin: Spain

pollenBee pollen is the flower pollen that is collected by honey bees when they land on flowers to collect nectar. Bees instinctively search for the best quality pollen, they bind it with enzymes in their pollen sacks and bring it back to the beehive in tiny pouches on the back of their legs. These fine golden pellets are collected from the bees legs using a small mesh placed by bee-keepers at the entrance to the hive. Bee pollen granules consist of a mixture of natural flower pollen mixed with beebread (flower nectar and bee secretions). The resulting nutrient-rich pollen mixture is then softened by natural processes making the nutrients up to seven times easier to assimilate. Raw bee pollen is superior to processed pollen, that you may find in capsules, as processing can break down the active ingredients.

Possible health benefits of bee pollen:

This potent superfood contains all the  essential amino acids, the full spectrum of vitamins, especially vitamins B12 and E; and significant amounts of B1, B2, B3, B5, C, and vitamin D. It also boasts various minerals including calcium, manganese, phosphorous, iron, sodium, potassium, aluminium, magnesium and copper. Not only that, but it also contains trace elements, proteins, enzymes, co-enzymes, pigments, xanthophylls, carotenes, sterols, phytosterols, lignans (dibenzyl butanes) isoflavones, carbohydrates and fatty acids.

Our bee pollen is made up of 5-25% amino acids, up to 40% carbohydrates, 5% fatty oils and up to 35% protein. It is also very rich in flavonoids and phytoestrogens, and contains more essential amino acids than meat, eggs or cheese. Bee pollen could also be helpful for weight loss and heart health, is a low-calorie food containing approximately 90 calories per 25g. It also contains 15% lecithin by volume, which helps dissolve visceral fat from the body. In addition to this, it could also lower levels of low-density lipoproteins cholesterol (LDL) while helping to increase the helpful high-density lipoproteins cholesterol (HDL), which scientists say could protect against heart disease

Suggested use:

It can be eaten on its own as a nutritious and healthy snack, or you can add it to cereal, muesli, porridge or yoghurt, stir it into warm drinks or blend it into smoothies and desserts. There are no set dosages, but we find that 5g-10g a day provides a good amount of nutrients.

Some people may be allergic to bee pollen, and it can cause allergic reactions in people who are sensitive to it.
