Bees collect pollen from the flowers of the plants and adding some nectar and beneficial microorganisms (probiotics) mold it in irregular spherical balls which constitute the protein food of bee pupae.
Pollen is rich in valuable ingredients, primarily in proteins and amino acids. It also contains lipids, lecithin (essential for fat metabolism), flavonoids (excellent antioxidants), carotenoids, trace elements and minerals.
It contains beneficial microorganisms (probiotcs), as well as vitamins C,E,B and P. Beeswax also contains enzymes (essential for the absorption and assimilation of food through the digestive system).
It is a multipurpose food which enhances the human body. Vitamin Ρ protects the walls of the vessels. Pollen enhances the immune system and furthers the detoxification of the body. It strengthens the beneficial microbes of the intestine (probiotics).
The consumption of pollen by people can start from small amounts to reach the maximum daily consumption which is one table spoon (about 35 grams), half an hour before a meal.
