Product Description

Details

Bee Pollen
Natural bee products such as royal jelly, honeycomb, and honey have been consumed as nutritional supplements for decades. However, Bee Pollen is a newly emerging product. It has become increasingly popular in the health community, providing an expansive and colourful nutritional profile (1). Recent studies have commended the healthfulness of Bee Pollen, based on proposed an anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, immunostimulant and antimicrobial potential (2). In Germany, Bee Pollen has been officially recognized as a medicine by the Board of Health (3).
Similar to other bee products, Bee Pollen originates from flower pollen, collected by foraging bees. Once attained, the bees combine the pollen with nectar or salivary solution (4,5). It is then transported, transferred to and stored in the honeycombs of the beehive, and subsequently sealed by a layer of wax and honey. This is referred to as ‘bee bread’, and once sealed begins to ferment, and so can be preserved in the optimal nutritional state.

About Bee Pollen
Bee Pollen is known to contain an abundance of active healthful substances, over 200 to be exact (1). These consist of a variety of nutrients (proteins, carbs and essential fats), vitamins, amino acids, phenolic compounds, and biological enzymes (6). These substances are one of the main reasons that Bee Pollen has been increasingly accepted as a potential therapeutic agent.
Bee pollen has been recently acknowledged for its high antioxidant potential and capacity to reduce oxidative damage. Oxidative damage occurs when we eat processed foods, smoke, drink alcohol excessively, fail to regularly exercise and get anxious or stressed. If this damage is not eradicated by a healthy balance of antioxidants in our diet, they can have severe impacts. Bee pollen may provide a good source of these antioxidants through the wide array of polyphenols and flavonoids it contains (7).
Bee Pollen also contains several essential nutrients including amino acids and fatty acids. These are essential because they cannot be produced within the body and must be attained from the diet. The amino acids consist of methionine, lysine, threonine, histidine, leucine, and thryptophan. These are required for an array of important processes including immune function, protection of DNA and tissue repair, to name a few.

Benefits of Bee Pollen
- The phenolics and flavonoid compounds provided in Bee Pollen have been reported to have an antibiotic effect in human cells. Put simply, it was observed in a study that Bee Pollen provided a protective effect from gram-negative bacterial growth in human cells, especially the Staphylococcus Aureus, which can contribute to illness and disease (8).
- A recent study reported that the higher polyphenol and flavonoid content, in different types of bee pollen, were in line with an improved ability to scavenge free radicals, a process in antioxidation (9).
- Several studies have acknowledged the anti-inflammatory potential of Bee Pollen. This is commonly due to the flavonoid content, with particular emphasis on the actions of Quercetin. It has been observed in previous studies that this flavonoid can reduce the amount of proinflammatory compounds, resulting in a reduction in inflammation – and highlights its potential for recovery (10,11).
