Why Eat Bee Pollen?

The reasons why I eat bee pollen is the tremendous energy boost I get for workouts, from the high quantity of vitamins and minerals.

Including are vitamins A, B Complex, C, D, E, beta carotene, selenium and lecithin. One ounce of pollen contains the nutrient content of about three cooked meals.

In 1 oz. you would get your daily recommended amount of amino acids, which helps your body more effectively utilize the protein you consume as well as nearly all your daily recommended amount of protein.

Although this highly nutritious food can be taken in a capsules and tablets form – where some of it’s nutrients lose their effectiveness when the granules are processed and broken down. Raw Bee pollen granules is the best way to gain full benefit, but many people do not like the taste. However, eating raw granules by the spoonful is not your only option.

Try combining bee pollen with different ingredients, making flavorful smoothies or snacks that give you all the health benefits.
The easiest way to blend it with other foods is to create a fruit shake or other drink in a blender.
