Bee pollen is the pollen produced by flowers that honey bees gather and bring back to the hive. Pollen grains are microscopic in size and bees collect millions of these individual grains and connect them with nectar into small pellets.
Bee pollen is an alkaline food considered by nutritionists to be the most complete food found in nature. It is a rich source of high-quality protein and contains all essential amino acids. Its high levels of protein and amino acids make it a great strength builder and brain food.
