Bee Pollen Benefits Pack a Punch

Bee pollen benefits are numerous. Raw bee pollen is a densely packed ball or pellet of field-gathered flower pollen. Once the bee pollen arrives back at the hive, it is stripped from the bee’s hind legs, mixed with honey, nectar, and bee saliva, then packed and stored in worker cells (or brood cells) by worker honeybees. The enzymes from the bee saliva are added as the honey bees ingest the honey and then regurgitate it onto the pollen. More bee pollen benefits are discussed below.

Bee Pollen is a Superfood

Bee Pollen, also considered a Superfood, is approximately 26% protein and is the hive’s primary food source. Bee pollen is low in fat, making it an ideal protein supplement for humans. The average composition consists of 40-60% simple sugars (fructose and glucose), 20-60% protein, 3% vitamins and minerals, 1-32% fatty acids, and 5% other components. Bee pollen’s nutritional content varies based on the flowering plants where the honey bees collected the pollen. Bee pollen is also called bee bread or ambrosia.

Bee Pollen Caveats

Bee Pollen is a complete food and is super healthy for you. However, if you are pregnant, here’s an important warning: bee pollen is not safe for pregnant women and should not be used during breastfeeding.
