Bee Pollen Benefits - Article
Bee pollen is sometimes called "the perfect food". Bee pollen benefits
stem from the fact that it contains more than 96 different nutrients,
including every single nutrient that is needed to sustain human life. It is
made up of 40% protein, nearly all of it usable by the body without any
further breakdown or metabolism.
The health benefits of bee pollen have been known for thousands of years.
It was a mainstay of traditional Chinese herbal medicine, a discipline that
is gaining a great deal of respect among western doctors recently.
Bee pollen contains 22 amino acids, vitamin C, B-complex and folic acid,
polyunsaturated fatty acids, enzymes, and carotene - all of the major
antioxidants that have so far been discovered. In addition, bee pollen
benefits your body with a number of vital trace elements that it can't
manufacture, but needs in order to stay healthy. Those trace elements
include iron, zinc, manganese, copper, calcium, magnesium, and potassium -
all minerals that have proven health benefits.
Scientists have tried to create synthetic bee pollen to no avail. While the
synthetic bee pollen seems to be identical in makeup to natural bee pollen,
when scientists try feeding it to worker bees, the bees die within a week.
THE HEALTH BENEFITS OF BEE POLLEN
It's been suggested - and accepted by most doctors and nutritionists - that
35 grams of bee pollen daily contains all the nutrients needed by the human
body to sustain life. Because bee pollen contains every know nutrient that
your body needs, it's a highly recommended health supplement to "fill in
the cracks" when your diet sometimes falls short of ideal. In fact, bee
pollen supplements are often used to bolster nutrition in famine-stricken
areas. Besides the obvious, though, there are specific health benefits of
- Bee pollen benefits your immune system. Bee pollen contains proteins,
mono and polyunsaturated fats, vitamins B, C, D, E, and beta-carotene,
calcium, magnesium, selenium, nucleic acids, lecithin, and cysteine, all of
which have been proven effective in strengthening the immune system.
- Bee pollen helps build resistance to allergies. Because bee pollen
contains traces of the substances that can trigger allergic hay fever, some
allergists prescribe it to help lower sensitivity to local plan pollens.
- Bee pollen helps you to cope more easily with stress. Because it has a
full complement of amino acids, essential fatty acids and vitamins that
help regulate mood, taking bee pollen supplements can help you control the
stress in your life.
- Athletes have used bee pollen for centuries to help them increase their
energy and endurance. While studies have yet to bear this out, it makes
logical sense that the long-term effects of using a bee pollen supplement
are extremely beneficial to athletes. Considering the full spectrum of
nutrients that bee pollen provides, it only makes sense that long-term bee
pollen supplements would help athletes - who deplete their bodies of
necessary nutrients on a regular basis.
Bee pollen should be avoided by those that have an allergy or sensitivity
to bee venom. Other than a worsening of allergic symptoms in those who are
already allergic, there are few bee pollen side effects. As the evidence of
bee pollen benefits mounts, we suggest a daily bee pollen supplement in
addition to a standard multivitamin to help keep your body healthy and in
