Nutritional Content Of Bee Pollen - No Wonder It's The Most Complete Food On The Planet



Nutritional Content Of Bee Pollen - No Wonder It's The Most Complete Food On The Planet

It seems there is some new type of supplement arriving on the market every day, and of course it is invariably capable of doing the most amazing things.

It cures baldness; it helps your joints; it gets rid of wrinkles, and of course, like virtually every other supplement, it enhances your sex life. I am so sick of reading these ludicrous claims that I no longer even bother.

Admittedly however, bee pollen supplements did manage to catch my attention, and I am about to explain why.

I am not going to mention a single health benefit. Instead, I am only going to discuss a few FACTS regarding the nutritional content of bee pollen, because this is essentially what I found so intriguing.

Let me begin by saying that the human body requires several different nutrients; minerals and vitamins. In fact, your body requires 28 different nutrients. These are essentially molecules which the body requires, but cannot produce.

Interestingly enough, there are only two known foods that contain all 28 nutrients - raw honey and bee pollen. Okay, so now we know that apart from honey, bee pollen has no other competitors as far as essential nutrients are concerned. What about vitamins?

Countless foods are packed full of vitamins and nobody is disputing this, but none of them contain every type of vitamin your body needs, apart from natural honey bee pollen which contains all 18 of them. 

Once again, it is easy to see why there is currently so much interest in this astonishing food.

Good quality bee collected pollen also contains all 25 minerals required by the body, and all the amino acids; fats; enzymes; co-enzymes and etc. It likewise contains good carbohydrates and 59 different trace elements.

When a person thinks of protein, they usually think of things like meat, and especially beef. Ironically, the protein content of beef lags behind that of pollen. In fact it's 50% lower than the protein content of pollen. 

Protein from pollen is also a richer source of amino acids than protein derived from foods like eggs; cheese, and etc.

Well, as you can see, I stuck to my word, in that I have not discussed any potential health benefits. However, if you do decide to start including pollen in your daily diet, it's imperative that you source a good quality supplement. 

Regardless of how amazing the nutritional content of bee pollen is, you could still damage your health if the pollen has been contaminated.

Controlled chemical analysis has clearly shown just how remarkable the nutritional content of bee pollen is, and as such it's clearly evident that it is indeed a complete food, and one of the most nutritious foods known to man.
