Vitamins found in pollen:
Minerals found in pollen:
Oils: - 5%
Water: 3-20% of fresh pollen
Proteins, Globulins, Peptones, and Amino Acids:
10-13% consists of amino acids in dry pollen.
35 grams of pollen per day can satisfy the protein requirements of man.
grams of pollen per day can sustain man because it contains 6.35 grams as
indicated by Rose.
A nutrient is a molecule you must have, but the body cannot manufacture. You have to ingest (eat) it. If you don't have it, at first you will not feel well. It you don't get it for a longer time, you will begin to feel sick. If you don't get it for too long a time you are probably going to die.
Each ounce of honeybee pollen contains just 28 calories. Only 7 grams are carbohydrate, plus 15% Lecithin, the substance that burns away fat and 25% is pure protein.
Enzymes & Co-enzymes:
Note: The cozymase in mixed fresh pollen runs about 0.5-1 .0 milligram per gram. comparable to the amounts in yeast. (Bee pollen contains all known enzymes & co-enzymes and probably all that will be known in the future.)
contains the same number of amino acids, but vary greatly in quantity of
Twenty-eight minerals are found in the human body. Fourteen are vital, essential elements present in such small amounts that they are called - "micro- nutrients." Honeybee pollen contains all 28 minerals:

What is Bee Pollen?
Many people do not know what bee pollen is or what it has to offer. Bee Pollen is one of nature's most powerful foods. It is flower pollen that bees collect for food. Bee pollen offers a treasure of special plant nutrients. Here are some of the qualities that make Bee Pollen unique:
1. Bee Pollen contains high quality nutrients that can be burned as fuel, it also provides nutrients that are helpful in maintaining and promoting health.
2. The wide range of nutrients found in Bee Pollen include vitamins, enzymes, beneficial fatty acids, free amino acids, chelated minerals and trace elements, polyphenols, as well as a host of phytonutrients that have yet to be identified. This diversity makes Bee Pollen an ideal dietary supplement as a complement and boost to a well-rounded diet.
3. The nutrients in Bee Pollen are very concentrated. This concentration of nutrients means that even small amounts provide effective and valuable levels of important nutrients. Bee pollen, as a food source or as a supplement, provides high intensity nutrition.
4. A word of caution for all people using bee pollen: Test for sensitivity of each pollen type by selecting 1 granule of each color and eating it. Then watch for any allergic reaction. If you have an allergic reaction you must then gradually build up the amount of Bee Pollen you use each day. If you are highly allergic to Bees you may not be able to eat Bee Pollen. Each time you get a new supply of bee pollen you should check for sensitivity.
5. Because bee pollen contains all nutrients need to sustain life, it is being used on an ever-larger scale for human nourishment and health. Science has not been able to duplicate bee pollen in the laboratory. The chemical analysis from scientific research, however, has proven that all the nutrients humanity needs for complete life support is already present in bee pollen. In other words, if no other foods were available, one could live on bee pollen and water for a considerable amount of time.
6. Bee Pollen provides about 20-35% protein by dry weight volume. It contains all the amino-acids, the building blocks of protein; 10 major minerals; 16 vitamins and hormones; a minimum of 10-12 pigments such as carotene, flavonols, quercitin and lycopene; reducing sugars (avg. 15%); non-reducing sugars (avg. 3%); human growth hormone factor; hormones (Gonadatropic estrogenic) not measured. Bee pollen also contains an anticarcinogenic principle and has been proven to lessen side effects experienced with chemotherapy and irradiation.
7. Bee pollen is very rich in rutin (which strengthens the capillaries), and may have the highest content of any source, plus a very high amount of the nucleics, RNA and DNA. Clinical tests show bee pollen administered to anemic infants considerably increases their level of hemoglobin. Bee pollen also contains variable quantities of an antibiotic potent against E.colo. In summation, a quote from Dr. G.J. Binding, British scientist and nutritionist: "Bee pollen is the finest, most perfect food. It is a giant germ-killer in which bacteria simply cannot exist. The health restoring property of honeybee pollen not only builds up strength and energy in the body, but also gives increased resistance to infection."
Dosage: Take 1/2 - 1 teaspoon 2 times per day. Take in water or juice, sprinkled on cereals or fruit, or mix in a shake.
Warning: Allergy sufferers may experience a severe reaction.
