I guess most of us realize that we can’t get enough minerals and vitamins from our daily food intake. We simply can’t eat THAT much fruits and vegetables in order to satisfy the daily vitamin/mineral requirements. Therefore all the supplements which have flooded the market and continue coming out.
Our bodies need two types of nutrients:
A) Macro Nutrients (90-96%) – Carbohydrates, Protein, Fats
B) Micro Nutrients (5-10%) – Minerals, Vitamins, Enzymes, Amino and Nucleic Acids
As I mentioned in my previous blog entry, it is important to choose the right product to supplement these necessary nutrients. Most of the vitamins/minerals you can buy from the pharmacy use a lot of additional fillers and chemicals in order to form the tablets. Imagine, each of those tablets only has a tiny amount (sometimes as small as a tip of a needle) of vitamin, but in order to put it into a tablet form additional fillers are used. After years of consuming these, the fillers – which can’t be digested by our bodies, collect and can cause many health issues. This is why it is best to choose a completely natural product.
After finding out about Bee Pollen and trying it out myself, I realized this is the most wholesome nutritional food, also known as ‘superfood’. It is also very convenient and I no longer needed to take individual vitamins and minerals. The one that I’ve been using is from Shuang Hor company and it is of the highest quality. It is completely natural and it uses the best European pollen, there are absolutely no artificial colors or other additives. The reason why Bee Pollen is know as the superfood is because it consists of:
Due to this, Bee Pollen, has many different benefits:
- Better Memory
- Better Radiant Skin
- Better Concentration
- Great Anti-oxidant
- Energy booster
- Better Tolerance to Stress
- Protection against radiation
- Healthy Growth
- Ideal Weight Management – takes the fat out of our blood stream
- Heart Disease – softens the blood vessels

- Strengthens Sperms
It’s unique composition allows our bodies to completely absorb and use all the minerals and vitamins and get the most benefits. This ability for our bodies to absorb all the nutrients is known as bioavailability and this makes Pollen so effective.
Bee Pollen and Weight Control
Bee pollen stimulates the metabolic processes, it speeds caloric burn by lighting and stoking the metabolic fires. By boosting the value of each nutrient present in the food you eat, bee pollen also eliminates cravings. Its natural phenylalanine content acts as an appetite suppressant. Phenylalanine is a natural amino acid that the body requires. It acts on your appestat, the control center that signals fullness and hunger.When you are overweight, phenylalanine exerts a natural appetite suppressant effect. When you need to gain weight, the phenylalanine in bee pollen works in reverse.
Bee Pollen and Beauty
Dr. Lars-Erik Essen, a dermatologist in Helsingborg, Sweden, pioneered the use of bee products for skin conditions. He treated many of his patients successfully for acne. Dr. Essen says, “Through transcutaneous nutrition, bee pollen exerts a profound biological effect. It seems to prevent premature aging of the cells and stimulates growth of new skin tissue. It offers effective protection against dehydration and injects new life into dry cells. It smoothes away wrinkles and stimulates a life-giving blood supply to all skin cells.”

Bee Pollen and Me
Whenever I have a hectic day in front of me, I make sure to take enough of Pollen to keep my energy up. It is quite amazing how fast is the energy boost from this product, for me it even works better than a cup of coffee. Of course you still have to maintain a healthy diet even after taking Pollen, but on those days when you decide to cheat and not have such a balanced diet, you can always equip yourself with extra dosage of Pollen.
I have also been adding Pollen to my baby’s milk since she was only few months old. With this I can eliminate giving her any of those chemical, man-made supplements which are full of artificial flavoring and coloring. It is especially good for those children who are slow in growth, as it improves their weight and brain development.
If I’m not feeling too great or feel like I’m coming down with a flu, I pump my body with Pollen every few hours and the symptoms quickly subside. I have completely stopped using flu/cold medicine so if I’m not well I simply increase Lingzhi and Pollen dosage and let my body heal naturally.
