Honeybees, truly fascinating creatures, provide us with beneficial natural super foods. Bee pollen is one of the nature’s most perfect foods. Long ago the Greeks and Romans called natural bee pollen “the life-giving dust” or the secret “ambrosia” eaten to acquire eternal youth. In our modern times, scientists and nutritionists have rediscovered these bee products and confirmed that they are able to promote benefits in the form of healing and rejuvenation.
Some nutritionists state that humans could live adequately on bee pollen alone. It contains every nutrient required to sustain and support life in a pure, raw and unaltered form. Bee products can provide support for almost any ailment or desired health enhancement. Bee pollen is known as an apitherapeutic product because it contains groups of chemical compounds that are made by bees and used for medicinal purposes. In its composition, there are about 250 substances, including amino acids, lipids, vitamins, macro- and micronutrients, and flavonoids.
