BEE POLLEN: NATURAL INGREDIENT OF RON RON

CHARACTERISTICS AND PROPERTIES

 

Bee pollen is found in every part of the world. It is not made by bees, but simply collected by them on the flowers and is the raw material for the production of royal jelly.
The Pollen is considered by many the aliment as close to perfection on earth in terms of the full range of nutrients. Every grain of pollen is a biological unit that contains all that is necessary for life: vitamins, proteins (35% consists of proteins, much as in the beans and lentils, five to seven times more protein than in the flesh) , twenty-one of twenty-three known amino acids, carbohydrates, enzymes, co-enzymes, sugars, growth hormones, minerals, trace elements (more than 25 trace elements compose 3.8% of pollen and include all essential trace element), lipids (most of the fat are essential fatty acids, 70% alpha-linolenic acid (omega 3), 3-4% The linoleic (omega 6), 16-17% monounsaturated and saturated). In the core of his cell, the pollen contains the secret of life: DNA and RNA molecules that determine the function of all living cells.

Average composition per 100 g .: water 60.5 g., Protein 20 g., fats 4.5 g., Sugars 15 g., Vitamin A, B vitamins, vitamin C, D, E, PP, K (practically all vitamins known, even if the B12 is present in low percentages), minerals (calcium, manganese, phosphorus, iron, sodium, potassium, aluminum, magnesium, copper), enzymes and coenzymes, pantothenic acid, nicotinic acid, thiamin, riboflavin, ascorbic acid (Vitamin C), pigments, xanthophyll, carotene, and sterols.

Pollen is uniformly rich in carotenoids, bioflavonoids and phytosterols, but the exact profile is variable according to the source of the plants and growing conditions. However, beta-carotene, lycopene, beta-sitosterol, quercetin, the isoramnetina, rutin are always present in pollen analysis. Bioflavonoids are a main reason of the many health benefits of the Pollen.

Bioflavonoids are a large class of phytoestrogens, widely distributed in food and medicinal plants. The "basic skeleton to three rings" of all flavonoids consists of two benzene rings connected to a pyran ring.

There are thousands of variations, based on the different components that are related in position around the rings. Epidemiological studies have shown that greater is the intake of bioflavonoids, lower is the risk of cardiovascular disease. Many bioflavonoids are powerful antioxidants.
Bioflavonoids lower cholesterol, stabilize and strengthen capillaries, reduce inflammation, fight free radicals and are antiviral, antibacterial and anti-cancer. Quercetin is an antihistaminic, anti-allergenic and anti-asthmatic, and is therefore very useful in the treatment of asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, bronchitis, sinusitis, colds, flu, and allergies. Rutin tones capillaries, helping varicose veins, venous insufficiency, hemorrhoids and hypertension. Pollen has so many properties being: tonic, nourishing and invigorating (strengthens and nourishes the entire body).

It is used to give strength and endurance. Used by athletes to increase energy, strength and resistance to fatigue and muscle strain. Effective in combating fatigue, tiredness, exhaustion, depression. Restores vitality and vigor, useful in convalescence and recovery after illness or surgical operations.

 
Bee Pollen: natural ingredient of Ron Ron

Anti-allergenic pollen is very useful in fighting allergies; you begin to take in small doses gradually increasing until the allergies disappear.
Also used in the treatment of hay fever. Useful for hypertension and nervousness corrects and regulates the endocrine imbalances. Anti-microbial detoxification, the pollen extracts help the liver to detoxify and protect it from damage.

In a laboratory experiment to the mice were given lethal doses of acetaminoefene, with or without extracts of pollen, and there was observed for 72 hours.
All mice that had not been given the pollen died in 24 hours, while a significant proportion of those who had been given the pollen survived. The pollen was revealed more protective when administered one hour after the dose of acetaminophen, instead of an hour before.

In a prolonged study, mice were exposed to vapors of organic solvents 30 hours per week for three months, simulating industrial exposure. This caused a significant increase in liver enzymes, suggesting that the detoxifying capacity of the liver were under stress.
The mice to which were administered pollen extracts had significantly lower levels of enzymes of the mice of the control group. The solvent exposure also increased cholesterol (104%) and triglycerides (37%) in mice of the control group. These increases were almost nonexistent in mice treated with pollen.

Helps against high cholesterol and high triglycerides: used in the treatment of cancer, several studies have been done about it: standardized extracts of pollen were evaluated an effective treatment for prostate enlargement and prostatitis in clinical tests to double-blind placebo-controlled study. There were no significant side effects.

The pollen contain lycopene, beta systerol and numerous flavonoids that have demonstrated an action in inhibiting the growth of prostate tissue and in reducing pain, inflammation and the risk of prostate cancer.

Mice that were implanted lung carcinomas survived almost twice as long if treated with pollen extracts compared to control groups not treated.
Pollen also increases the effectiveness of treatment of chemotherapy when administered simultaneously. Unlike medicines, pollen does not attack the tumor directly, but rather stimulates the immune system.

History and curiosity

Pollen is a major source of supply for the bees. Worker bees travel from flower to flower collecting pollen in special "baskets" placed on their legs. The workers collect more than that is needed to the hive, so beekeepers have invented the screens to scrape the pollen when the bees enter the hive.

Some pollens are light and dry, to be dispersed by the wind. Other pollens are heavier and sticky destined instead to stick to the insects that visit the flowers. These pollen grains are like microscopic "hitchhikers" that is collected by bees of passage and are mainly the type found in bee pollen.

While the bees collect, perform the task of pollinating plants. The pollen carried by the wind are responsible for the higher pollen allergies, not sticky pollen. In fact, regular consumption of pollen can give significant help against allergies.
Bee pollen granules sold is usually the less worked. The granules should be soft and malleable with a bouquet and a flowery taste and sweet, similar to honey crude. The distinctive flavor "flowered" of raw honey is due to small amounts of pollen in honey.
Some terminación of pollen is necessary because the pollen grains have two hard outer shells that surround the contents nutritive. The digestive systems of bees are designed to to cope with these shells, but those of humans, of cats, and dogs do not. Consequently, the best producers of pollen grains gently break before packing them.

The pollen sold in plastic bags should always be kept in the refrigerator. The sealed containers must be refrigerated once opened. Fresh pollen crude is actually a fresh product and must be treated as such. The granules can be encapsulated, pressed into tablets or chewable tablets or finely ground for use in foods and beverages.
