Bee pollen is one of Nature’s truly remarkable super-foods, it is considered to be the most complete food found in nature. That means you could just survive and thrive on that food without experiencing deficiencies….

Now please, I am not saying you should be going on a bee pollen diet :o) However I highly recommend you add it to your diet.

Bee pollen is the pollen from flowers that honey bees gather and bring back to the hive. The pollen grains are microscopic in size and bees collect millions of these individual grains and connect them with nectar into small pellets.

Bee pollen is an alkaline food, a rich source of high-quality protein and it contains all essential amino acids, has a vast array of minerals & vitamins (extraordinarily rich in most of the B vitamins) as well as over 5,000 enzymes & phytonutrients.

Some of the benefits from consuming bee pollen are increased energy, stamina, muscle growth and definition. It builds the immune system and has antioxidant activity.

Bee pollen is really yummy and you can just eat a spoon full on its own. Bee pollen is a great addition to your smoothies, we also love it as topping on fruit & yoghurt.You can add them to your own trail-mix of nuts and goji berries.

For those who are new to enjoying this, it is recommended that an initial small dosage be taken first, there is the rare possibility of having an allergic reaction.

Bee pollen, like honey, is one of those products I recommend you source at your local farmers market. Meet your local Apiarist (bee man/woman) and buy from them the fresh product, regardless of where you are in the world, try sourcing it locally first.

We are lucky in WA because Western Australian bee pollen is incredibly highly valued and sought after world wide.
