What is BEE POLLEN?
Pollen is actually the male sex cell of flowering plants and is considered the most important diet of bees, which also has a very high nutritional value for humans.
This pollen is known as a complete food because it has a wide range of essential micronutrients that can be used in human nutrition and even treatment.
The color of bee pollen depends on the amount of natural pigments in the pollen, which can be different in different plant species. For example, pollen in almonds is brownish-olive.
Carotenoids, chlorophylls, xanthophylls, and anthocyanins are responsible for the attractive and varied colors of BEE POLLEN.
A variety of medicinal and rare plants, excellent climate, and organic beekeeping in Iran have made Iranian bee products such as natural honey and BEE POLLEN very unique
Components of BEE POLLEN
The most important constituents of bee pollen are proteins (average 23%), digestible carbohydrates (30%), sugars (26%), fats (about 5%), minerals (1.6%), and phenolic compounds (about 2%). In the meantime, several vitamins, enzymes, amino acids, and other essential micronutrients of the body have been identified in smaller amounts in bee pollen.
How its made BEE POLLEN
Bee pollen is granules made by bees on flowers.
These granules are a combination of pollen, saliva, and nectar, young bees put these granules in the pollen baskets on their legs and take these granules to the hive to store in the hive.
The reason for collecting pollen is to produce bee bread to feed the hive.
SCA can supply Iranian bee pollen in large volumes and with world-class quality and First-class quality
Health Benefits of BEE POLLEN
- Safe for Most People and Easy to Add to Your Diet
- Bee pollen comes in granule or supplement form and is safe for most people.
- The granules can be added to your favorite foods such as breakfast or smoothies.
- However, people with pollen or bee sting allergies should avoid pollen products, as they may cause symptoms such as itching, swelling, shortness of breath, or anaphylaxis.
- These products may also interact negatively with blood thinners, such as warfarin.
- Pregnant or lactating women should avoid bee pollen products, as evidence is lacking that they’re completely safe for babies.
- High Antioxidant Content
- Antioxidants protect your body against potentially harmful molecules called free radicals. Damage by free radicals is linked to chronic diseases such as cancer and type 2 diabetes
- Test-tube, animal and some human studies have shown that bee pollen antioxidants can reduce chronic inflammation, eliminate harmful bacteria, fight infections and combat the growth and spread of tumors. However, pollen’s antioxidant content also depends on its plant source.
- Reducing blood fat and high cholesterol
- Heart disease is the leading cause of death worldwide. Both high blood lipids and high blood cholesterol are linked to an increased risk of heart disease. Interestingly, pollen may lower these risk factors.
- For instance, animal studies have shown that bee pollen extracts can lower blood cholesterol levels, especially “bad” LDL cholesterol.
- Additionally, antioxidants in pollen may protect lipids from oxidizing. When lipids oxidize they can clump together, restricting blood vessels and raising your heart disease risk.
- Strengthen liver function
- Your liver is a vital organ that breaks down and removes toxins from your blood. Animal studies have found that bee pollen may enhance its detoxifying abilities.
- In older animals, bee pollen boosted the liver’s antioxidant defense and removed more waste products, such as malondialdehyde and urea, from the blood.
- Other animal studies show that pollen antioxidants safeguard the liver against damage from several toxic substances, including drug overdoses.
- Reduce inflammation and swelling
- Bee pollen has been used traditionally to reduce inflammation and swelling. An animal study showed that pollen extract reduced swelling of rats’ paws by 75%.
- pollen packs several compounds that can reduce inflammation and swelling, including the antioxidant quercetin, which lowers the production of inflammatory omega-6 fatty acids, such as arachidonic acid.
- What’s more, plant compounds in pollen may suppress biological processes that stimulate the production of inflammatory hormones such as tumor necrosis factor (TNF).
- Wound Healing and Prevent Infections
- Bee pollen has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, which may aid your body in wound healing. For instance, animal research found that pollen extract was similarly effective at treating burn wounds as silver sulfadiazine, a gold standard in burn treatment, and caused far fewer side effects.
- Another animal study showed that applying a balm containing bee pollen onto a burn significantly accelerated healing over standard medicines.
- pollen’s antimicrobial properties may also prevent infections, a major risk factor that can compromise the healing process for scrapes, cuts, abrasions, and burns.
- Anticancer Properties
- Bee pollen may have applications for treating and preventing cancers, which occur when cells proliferate abnormally.
- Test-tube studies have found pollen extracts to inhibit tumor growth and stimulate apoptosis — the programmed death of cells — in the prostate, colon, and leukemic cancers.
- Bee pollen from cistus (Cistus incanus L.) and white willow (Salix alba L.) may have anti-estrogen properties, which could lower the risk of breast, prostate, and uterine cancers. However, more human-based research is needed.
- Ease Menopause Symptoms
- Menopause, which marks the cessation of menstruation in women, is often accompanied by uncomfortable symptoms such as hot flushes, night sweats, mood changes, and sleep disturbances.
- Studies show that pollen may alleviate several menopausal symptoms. In one study, 71% of women felt that their menopausal symptoms improved while taking pollen.
- In another study, 65% of women taking a pollen supplement experienced fewer hot flashes. These women indicated other health improvements as well, such as better sleep, reduced irritability, less joint pain, and improved mood and energy.
- Moreover, a three-month study showed that women taking pollen supplements experienced significantly fewer menopausal symptoms. In addition, these supplements helped lower “bad” LDL cholesterol and raise “good” HDL cholesterol.
