Pollen is a small grain made up of just a few cells and is produced b y both flowering plants
and cone-bearing plants known as angiosperms and gymnosperms. if you are allergic, you feel the presence of pollen in the spring. Pollen grains are unique to the plants they come from and can be identified under a microscope by shape, size and presence of surface textures.
We know that honey bees use plant nectar to make honey!! but they also collect pollen, because it is an important protein source for colony life. The role of pollen in colony life is as important as that of honey. Pollen is needed for other bees to be raised. Plant pollen is the only protein source that bees eat. without pollen no young bees could be raised and the colony eventually died.
As bee pollen contains many vitamins, mineral and anti-oxidants, it is extremely healthy for humans!!
Studies have linked bee pollen and and its compounds to health benefits such as: Decreased inflammation, as well as improved immunity, menopausal symptoms and wound healing.
HOW MUCH POLLEN SHOULD BE TAKEN DAILY?
There is not a recommended dosage, but it's a good idea to start with a small amount to make sure you are not allergic to it.
You might start with a 1/4 teaspoon and increase gradually to 2 tablespoons a day.
Pollen is a vegetable food in its rawest form, which has endless health benefits for humans. Pollen is not a seed or a berry. It is a complete food a the main reason for which the berries or the seeds exist!!
Bee pollen is not certainly bees' dropping as some people have suggested.
