Many people ask how to effectively introduce bee pollen into their diet so as not to get discouraged quickly? We advise you by providing some proven and quick methods. Before that, however, it is worth mentioning what bee pollen is and what role it plays in the diet of humans and the bee family.
Pollen collected by bees from flowers and bushes is combined with bee enzymes during the flight back to the hive. It is a source of rich protein needed for the proper development of the entire bee family at the very beginning of spring.
Nutritional values of bee pollen
In the human diet, it is a superfood , very popular and a highly condensed source of natural vitamins (all those found in nature , non-synthetic - not artificially created by the pharmaceutical industry). The vitamins contained in it are almost completely absorbable, additionally regenerating the mucous membrane of our digestive system. It has no side effects.
What makes it such a valuable dietary supplement? Its intelligent operation. Well, every developing disease in our body begins at the cellular level and then manifests itself in the form of a diseased organ. Bee Pollen is absorbed and reaches every cell of our organs, rebuilding the immune system step by step.
When taken regularly (preferably as part of a minimum 2-month treatment), it significantly improves the condition of hair, nails and skin. Moreover, it is valued in the treatment of drug-resistant depression. For people suffering from anemia due to iron deficiency, it is a real godsend. Also perfect for people suffering from irritable bowel syndrome.
How to take bee pollen properly?
To effectively introduce bee pollen into your diet, soak or crush it in a mortar before consumption. To increase the absorption of the precious vitamins contained in it. Unfortunately, research shows that the consumption of uncrushed pollen reduces the absorption of the vitamins contained in it to the level of 15%... so it would be a pity to lose its super power. On the other hand, we warn against purchasing already ground bee pollen, which is increasingly available in health food stores. Its nutritional values quickly "weather".
The best solution is to buy pure bee pollen, tightly packed in glass (avoid those packed in plastic bags!) and then crush the recommended dose in a mortar or soak it for at least 30 minutes. You can add the prepared pollen to:
- freshly squeezed juice
- warm milk with honey or cacao
- morning oatmeal or yogurt with jam and fresh fruit
