Did you know that bee pollen is considered one of the most well-rounded foods in terms of nourishment for humans as well as bees?! It has as much as 40% protein and amino acids that your body can use easily, break down and absorb quickly. Bee pollen also has lots of vitamins and minerals– it’s loaded with B-complex vitamins and folic acid (needed by your body to make new cells), as well as rutin (a phytochemical) that can help to fight heart attacks and strokes.
