I have been taking some pollen recently and it’s been alright. It’s not as sweet as I thought it might be – my brain’s been contaminated with thoughts of honey! – but it’s something to mull over, for sure.
Flowers, eating flowers, parts of flowers, essential oils, flower power, healing power, various extraction methods, vibrational energy etc. are things that interest me primarily for the result of the benefits we, as people, should be obtaining from the wonderful food source of nature: flora and fauna.

PRODUCT INFORMATION (from leaflet) :
“ What is pollen and where does it come from?
Pollen consists of male germ cells produced in the flowers and plants. Bees gather it by means of miniscule baskets on their legs and feed it to their young larvae. Beekeepers and other specialists have long recognized its extraordinary properties and collect it for human consumption.
What is pollen made of?
Pollen is made up of glucides (28% to 40%) and proteins (7% to 28%). These quantities vary depending on the kind of flower the pollen comes from. Half of these proteins occur in the form of free amino acids, which are absolutely necessary for our body but which our body cannot product itself.
Of the 22 different amino acids that exist, pollen has 20. Thirty grams of pollen (a full soup-spoon) provides our daily requirement of these very important substances.
In addition to glucides and proteins, pollen also has fats (3% to 14%). Significantly, almost half of them are unsaturated fatty acids: linolic acid, linolenic acid, and arachidonic acid.
There are also minerals (potassium, magnesium, calcium, etc), vitamins, enzymes (phosphatese, amylase, invertase), and antibiotics. The antibiotics pollen contains are particularly active against bacteria in the intestines and are effective in the treatment of both diarrhoea and constipation.
Properties of this pollen
This pollen is a mixture from a number of kinds of flowers. It has been freshly harvested, carefully cleaned, and immediately dried at temperatures no higher than 40℃. Thus, the vitamins, enzymes and hormones have remained in tact.
It is a completely natural, concentrated food. It is a rapid and effective means to combat many forms of exhaustion, both physical and mental: weakness, recuperation periods, over tension, old age fatigue, lack of appetite, loss of weight. It is particularly effective against prostate difficulties. ”
