How To Enjoy Bee Pollen
Mix 1 teaspoon of the powder in cereals, oatmeal, or puddings. Try blending bee pollen powder in a refreshing fruit smoothie, or sprinkling it on salads and sliced fruit. You can even incorporate it into raw desserts but refrain from cooking it as heat will reduce the potency.

Health Benefits Of Bee Pollen Powder
1) Protein Powerhouse: Bee pollen is composed of 40 percent protein, making it an excellent source of this vital nutrient. It is considered a complete protein containing 22 amino acids, including all of the essential amino acids, which are critical for building the proteins in our bodies.
2) Energy Booster: Often referred to as Mother Nature’s natural energy booster, bee pollen contains a wide range of nutrients to ward off fatigue. These include B-complex vitamins, antioxidants, minerals, and enzymes. Olympic athletes have even used bee pollen to increase their energy levels and endurance.
3) Heart-Healthy: One of the richest food sources of the antioxidant rutin, bee pollen may help prevent the risk for strokes and heart attacks. A 2012 study published in The Journal of Clinical Investigation found that rutin was able to prevent the formation of blood clots which detrimentally block blood vessels.

How Is Bee Pollen Powder Made?
Bees make bee pollen granules by collecting and mixing together the excess pollen and nectar created by flowers. They carry the bee pollen on their legs as they travel back to their hives. Hive owners place a mesh screen near the beehives to safely brush off the pollen granules as the bees pass through, and collect the pollen in a tray.
