Rich in protein, amino acids, folic acid, vitamins (particularly high in vitamin B) and antioxidants, bee pollen has been used as a natural food supplement for thousands of years. It is such a superfood because it contains nearly all nutrients humans need to function.
Reasons Why Bee Pollen Is Amazing:
– Enhances energy
– Boots the immune system
– Good for people with asthma as the antioxidants have anti inflammatory effects on the tissue of the lungs
– Aides digestion
– Helps the body to absorb nutrients more easily
– Corrects cholesterol levels
– Can help to prevent heart attacks and strokes due to its anti blood clotting powers.
– Can help with fertility by stimulating and restoring ovarian function.
– Curbs cravings
– Acts as an aphrodisiac
– It supports the cardiovascular system by strengthening capillaries and blood vessels due to the high amount of Rutin, an antioxidant.
– A great source of protein for vegetarians
I have been using bee pollen for about a week now and have to say I love it. It just adds that special extra something to your meal or drink and I genuinely notice the good effects it has on me. I haven’t been drinking tea or coffee (only non caffeine herbal teas) this week and about half an hour after I have eaten my breakfast with a tsp of bee pollen I feel alert and my fatigue disappears. I have been adding it to my boyfriends breakfast as well who was feeling a little under the weather before I started using it and now he feels fine and has avoided coming down with something. I highly recommend this superfood, it is unbelievably good for you in so many ways and is 100% natural.
Where To Get It From:
The picture above is the product I have recently been using, which I bought from Wholefoods. But you can buy it online, most health stores and high-end supermarkets.
How To Use It:
I like to add it to my smoothies, juices and porridge because I find eating it on its own can taste a little bitter. You can add it to anything you want but I recommend you have it in the morning with your breakfast to help set you up for the day.
2 tsp daily
It is unsuitable or infants under 12 months.
