We all know that bees bring us the gold liquid goodness called honey. But do you know that the tiny dusts of bee pollen is also extremely beneficial?
Pollen is the male seed of flowers. Bee pollen is obtained from the legs of honeybees. As honeybees gather nectar from flowers, the pollen gets stuck on their legs and transported back to the hives of the bees. Beekeepers would set traps to collect the pollen as it drops off from the bees.
Bee Pollen is said to contain the most completely nourishing food that humans need. It contains 55% carbohydrates, 30% protein, and vitamins B, C, D, E, F and K. Minerals include iron, copper, magnesium, zinc, sodium and many more are also found in pollen. Because of its benefits, Bee Pollen is part of many traditional remedies and tonic.
