bees


Did you know bee pollen is good for you? Bee pollen is made from plant pollen, a dust sized seed found on the stamen or male reproductive organ, of all flowers. As bees collect nectar from flowers, the pollen sticks to their legs. Bee pollen looks like tiny yellow, tan, orange, and brown balls. The taste can vary depending on what type of plant it comes from. It can be bitter or can have a sweet, nutty flavour.
The benefits of bee pollen:
• Increased energy levels
• Weight loss (lecithin removed fat from the body and increases metabolism. Diuretic capabilities help decrease food cravings).
• Decreased allergy symptoms
• Improved immune system
• Decreased menstrual cramps
• Decreased acne
• Wounds heal quicker
• Decreased depression and fatigue
• Normalised blood glucose levels (can help prevent diabetes)
• Improved migraine headaches
• Improved fertility
• Improved digestion
• Anti-ageing effects

Take 1 teaspoon of bee pollen daily. You can add it to smoothies or sprinkle it on your breakfast.

My mother in law eats is and she is a pretty wise woman! =)
