Bee pollen is thought to be the richest source of vitamins found in nature in a single food. These tiny pollens contain almost all the nutrients required by the human body and are very high in protein, about half of which is in the form of free amino acids that are ready to be used directly by the body. Bee pollen is enormously rich in vitamins, minerals, beneficial fatty acids, carotenoids, and bioflavonoids, which are anti-viral, antibacterial and helpful in lowering cholesterol. Bee Pollen contains a high content of rutin, which stabilises and strengthens capillaries. Pollen is the only plant source that contains the exclusive vitamin B12. It contains least 20 amino acids and more than 100 active enzymes, plus phenylalanine which acts as appetite suppressant and lecithin that helps dissolve and flush fat from the body.
