Pollen is vital for the reproduction of flowers and plants. It is transferred to flowers’ style mainly through the bees. Pollen is collected by bees due to its importance to their diet, especially in the early stages. From antiquity, people have been using pollen primarily for its antioxidant properties and its antimicrobial and anti-ageing effects.
Bee pollen benefits
According to a group of Greek researchers who studied its chemical composition, pollen inhibits the growth of bacteria and pathogenic fungi primarily due to the high level of flavonoids (plant derivatives that help protect against pathogenic micro-organisms). Due to its flavonoid content, pollen has an antioxidant effect, helping to combat free radicals in the human body, thereby contributing to delayed ageing, and prolonging life.
We suggest consuming 1 teaspoon daily for the first week. Then you can increase consumption to 1 tbsp. You can eat bee pollen before your breakfast.
If no allergies are detected then bee pollen can be consumed continuously.
Date of expiry
Bee pollen can be kept in the freezer for up to 1 year from the date of production. The proper storage of bee pollen is in the freezer at -18°C, from where it is consumed directly without crystallizing. It can also be kept in the refrigerator for 2 months after the date of production.
