Facts About Bee Pollen

Bee pollen contains nearly every nutrients required by humans. Bee-gathered pollen consists of nearly 40% protein, folic acid, vitamins, including B-complex, and is considered one of the Earth's most nourishing foods.

Bee pollen in itself is a complete food and contains elements that animal based products don't possess. Bee pollen is far richer in proteins than any other animal source as it contains more amino acids than eggs, cheese or even beef of equivalent weight. Being greatly comprised of protein in the form of free amino acids, once ingested bee pollen is ready to be used directly by your body.
