Health Benefits Of Bee Pollen

Bee pollen is a supplement that is known since ancient times. Try it yourself and you'll feel rejuvenated and truly alive.

Dietary supplements are all the rage - and for good reason. New all-natural discoveries are being snatched up by the general public in hopes of supplementing poor nutrition habits as well as for boosting immune systems. Bee pollen is not the product of one particular bee type or one particular flower. Bees travel flower-to-flower and collect then re-distribute pollen - to and from all sorts of plants. Pollen is found in almost all plants but the most common for bee pollen products are corn, pine, rye and timothy grass. Most pollen contains not only fats and carbohydrates but vitamins, protein and minerals too. References to the consumption of bee pollen for health reasons can even be found in ancient Chinese and Egyptian texts. Although many scientific studies are yet to be done concerning the health benefits of bee pollen tests on animals have shown a lowering of cholesterol levels by a significant amount. Currently, one of the most common medical applications is for prostate problems.

Many people who take bee pollen state that they feel energized and less hungry. Bee pollen is considered to be one of nature's most nourishing foods since it contains most of the nutrients needed by humans. It is rich in protein, vitamins, folic acid and amino acids. And people aren't the only ones who benefit from taking the pollen. Even animals have shown remarkable recovery from injuries and other problems after beginning a regimen of bee pollen.

Many cultures of the world insist that it improves endurance, extends longevity, helps towards building new blood and prevents diseases like influenza. Indeed, research has shown that one substance in the pollen inhibits the development of harmful bacteria. In the States and abroad people are adding bee pollen to their supplement plan for helping to reduce food cravings and to assist in recovery from chronic sickness. The rutin in bee pollen, known for strengthening the capillaries, is just one more reason to ingest the natural supplement.

Those with anemia can well benefit from bee pollen since lab results of those who tried it proved that the pollen raises levels of hemoglobin considerably. Bee pollen lowers high cholesterol and triglyceride levels while it raises lipo-proteins. And test results on lab mice shows a decrease in the likelihood of developing certain tumors. In additional tests of women with inoperable uterine tumors bee pollen lowered their side effects of the chemotherapy and raised their cancer-fighting immune system cells.

Bee pollen has been linked to an increase in fertility, less risk of hair loss during chemotherapy, and as a treatment for allergies. It has also been credited with increasing the strength in athletes and with weight control. Now many dermatologists are recommending bee pollen formulas for the skin as a beauty treatment claiming it prevents premature aging and stimulates new skin tissue growth. Skin experts also claim that the pollen smooths away wrinkles, protects against dehydration and gives new life to dry skin cells.

Recommended dosages range from 500 to 1000 mg depending upon the formula. Although bee pollen has few, if any, side effects for most people it's still a good idea to check with your doctor before adding bee pollen to your dietary supplement regimen.
