But did you know that bee pollen is considered one of the most well-rounded foods in terms of nourishment â€“ for humans as well as bees?! It has as much as 40% protein, all amino acids that your body can easily use. It has almost all of the nutrients that the human body needs, and itâ€™s packaged in a form that your body can break down and absorb quickly.
Aside from the amazingly high protein content, bee pollen has lots of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. Itâ€™s loaded with B-complex vitamins and folic acid (needed by your body to make new cells), as well as rutin â€“ a phytochemical that can help to fight heart attacks and strokes.
