Research studies document the possible therapeutic efficacy and safety of bee pollen. Clinical tests show that orally ingested bee pollen particles are rapidly and easily absorbed- they pass directly from the stomach into the bloodstream. Within two hours after ingestion, bee pollen is found in the blood, in cerebrospinal fluids, and in the urine. By providing the human body with all the nutritional elements it needs, and in just the right proportions, honey bee pollen may support the body's own healing and rejuvenation mechanisms to perform their normal functions of the building, restoring, maintaining and protecting every cell.
According to bee expert Royden Brown, bee pollen contains differing quantities of a natural antibiotic which may support a healthy immune system. Research also found that bee pollen showed a significant ability to possibly support cells from toxic effects of common drugs. These common drugs may possibly cause damage to our DNA (genetic code) when we take them.
With the addition of roughage and water, the human body can survive on honey bee pollen alone. This is because it is the only food which contains over 96 nutrients including all known vitamins, from A to K, 28 minerals, 14 fatty acids, all 8 essential amino acids, several special compounds and all 22 known essential nutritional elements (and others yet to be identified), which humans require to achieve and maintain optimum vitality. Bee pollen contains 40% protein in a highly bio-available form of free amino acids which get directly assimilated by the body. Best of all, everything that can be derived from bee pollen is as broken down as it is going to be, meaning that the body doesn't need to break the nutrients down any further.
While it might sound a bit backward, bee pollen can support the body's ability to have a healthy allergic response by possibly lowering the body's sensitivity to pollen. This is similar to the way vaccinations can prevent illness. Bee pollen contains bits of the very same substances that can aggravate seasonal allergies and by consuming it in small substances it may support the body to gradually build up resistance.
Bee pollen is believed to nourish the body and enhance vitality. Bee pollen may help to support overall brain health. Bee pollen's ability to consistently and noticeably support energy levels and healthy recovery makes it a favorite among many world class athletes and those interested in improving physical performance. It contains vitamins B, C, D, and E, as well as calcium, magnesium, selenium, cysteine and a variety of proteins.
