The Benefits of Bee Pollen as a Superfood

Wednesday, June 3, 2015 10:39:23 AM Europe/London

Bee pollen has been classified as a superfood due to the multitude of vital nutrients it contains for life. It is rich in vitamins, proteins, minerals, carbohydrates among other nutrients that are not readily available in any other one source. Bee pollen is commonly known as ‘ambrosia’. Pollen in itself is the male seed of a flower and is found on the ends of the stamen, the male part of a flower and it is the part that is responsible for fertilization. Bee pollen is what is fed to bee larvae and is gathered as pollen by worker bees that then transport them back to the hive where it is mixed with honey and fed to the bee larvae.

Attempts to synthesize bee pollen has not borne much fruit as there are still elements in bee pollen that scientists have not been able to identify but which prove to play an important role as synthetic bee pollen given to bee larvae has resulted in their death. In spite of the fact that the composition of the pollen might vary depending on the flower types available in a certain area, the prevailing climate amongst a host of other variables, its nutritional value is still unmatched.

Bee pollen contains more protein than any other animal source of equal weight and a huge amount of vitamins especially of the rare but important B-complex vitamin type in addition to folic acid, Choline, and rutin. The minerals contained in it are calcium, iron, phosphorus, potassium, iodine among others and even though mineral consumption should be done within a specific range to avoid inhibiting the absorption of other minerals, bee pollen contains these minerals in just the right amount to ensure everything is absorbed and utilized.

Bee pollen due to its wealth in nutrients, affords various benefits that are:

  • Bee pollen helps to boost the composition of blood as experiments have proven that bee pollen given to anemic patients resulted in an increase in their hemoglobin – the oxygen-carrying component in blood.
  • Bee pollen has been proven to maintain cholesterol levels within healthy limits by increasing the quantity of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) and decreasing that of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) and this is due to Lecithin that helps dissolve body fat.
  • Bee pollen has been seen to decrease the problems associated with infertility. When included in the diet it is responsible for increasing the intensity of ovulation and, in addition, improves the ability of the egg to withstand the incubation period.
  • Bee pollen is a good anti-allergen. Bee pollen has been seen to alleviate the severity of the allergic reaction and in other cases even cure patients of them completely.
  • Bee pollen consumption increases the strength, stamina and endurance capability with its great potential to decrease the pulse rate. Ideal for sports persons who are more interested in a natural supplement.
  • Bee pollen helps to promote weight loss by increasing the rate of metabolism and this results in a heightened rate in which calories are burned and because it is low in caloric value, the extra calories burned are from the body. It also contains phenylalanine that suppresses appetite, and this reduces the food eaten.
  • Bee pollen has skin rejuvenating properties like rehydration of the skin that helps to reduce the aging process of the skin cells and restores supply of blood to the skin.
