Bee pollen has been consumed since ancient times and, although not scientifically proven, it is considered to have amazing health benefits – it contains over a dozen vitamins, amino and fatty acids and is 25% protein, making bee pollen a genuine powerhouse among the many ‘superfoods’ available today. It is believed to help with muscle recovery and stamina, to help fight allergies, to help with weight control due to its effect on the metabolism and to improve the circulation.
Bee pollen can be used as a sweetener and supplement to juices, smoothies and teas, it can be added to enrich granola and ‘energy’ bars, and even eaten ‘neat’.
