Bee pollen is the product of tireless worker bees that dedicate their short lives to producing an elixir of flower pollen, nectar, enzymes, honey, and beeswax held together with bee saliva. Also known as bee bread, this substance is stored in the hive’s “pantry” for use during times of scarcity and to nourish emerging young. In fact, bee pollen is the sole source of protein for the entire colony. Bee pollen powder offers humans the same benefits it does bees – more than 250 biologically active substances, including antioxidants, essential fatty acids, enzymes, vitamins and minerals.
