From antiquity people have been using pollen primarily for its antioxidant properties and its antimicrobial and anti-ageing effects. 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. Oros Machaira pollen is collected from our own hives, is placed on the market fresh and is not processed at all. A gift from our bees to you.
