Bee pollen: natural ingredient of Wonderup

Characteristics and properties

The bee pollen is all over the world. It is not made by bees, but they simply picked the flowers and constitutes the raw material for the production of royal jelly.
Pollen is considered by many the food nearer to perfection present on earth in terms of full range of nutrients. Each grain of pollen is the biological unit contains everything that is necessary for life: vitamins, proteins (35% is made of proteins, much as beans and lentils, five to seven times more protein than in meat) , twenty of twenty-three known amino acids, carbohydrates, enzymes, coenzymes, sugars, growth hormones, minerals, trace elements (more than 25 oligoelements composing 3.8% of pollen and include all essential trace element), lipids (fats most are essential fatty acids, 70% alpha-linolenic (omega 3), 3-4% of the linoleic (omega 6), 16-17% monounsaturated and saturated). In the nucleus of its cell, the pollen contains the secret of life: DNA and RNA molecules that determine the function of all living cells.

He was chosen as an ingredient in Wonderup as a general tonic for the body. Assists in all processes of development and growth, thereby contributing both to the general welfare of the organism and more specifically to the development of the mammary glands of the breast.

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

The pollen is uniformly rich in carotenoids, bioflavonoids and phytosterols, but the exact profile is variable depending on the source of plants and the growth conditions. However, beta-carotene, lycopene, beta-sitosterol, quercetin, the isorhamnetin, rutin are always present in analysis of the pollen. Bioflavonoids are a major reason for many health benefits of Pollen.

Bioflavonoids are a major class of phytoestrogens, widely distributed in food and medicinal plants. The “three-ring basic skeleton” 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 to positions around the rings. Epidemiological studies proved that higher is the intake of bioflavonoids, lower is the risk of cardiovascular disease. Many of bioflavonoids are potent antioxidants.
Bioflavonoids lower cholesterol, stabilize and strengthen capillaries, reduce inflammation, fight against free radicals and are antiviral, antibacterial and anticancer. Quercetin is an antihistaminic, anti-asthmatic and anti-allergenic and is therefore very useful in the treatment of asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, bronchitis, sinusitis, colds, flu and allergies. Rutin tonifies capillaries, helping varicose veins, venous insufficiency, hemorrhoids and hypertension. The pollen has so many properties, thus being a tonic, nutritive and invigorating (strengthens and nourishes the entire body).

It is used to provide resistance and strength. Used by athletes to increase energy, strength and fatigue resistance and muscular effort. Effective in combating fatigue, tiredness, exhaustion, depression. Restores vitality and vigor, useful in convalescence and recovery after illness or surgery.

Help against cholesterol and high triglycerides; used in the treatment of cancer, various studies have been done on the subject: standardized extracts of pollen were evaluated an effective treatment against prostate enlargement and prostatitis in clinical trials double-blind, controlled placebo. There were no significant side effects.

The pollen contains lycopene, beta-sisterolo and several flavonoids that have demonstrated an action in inhibiting the growth of prostate tissue and in reducing pain, inflammation and the risk of prostate cancer.

The pollen also increases the efficacy of chemotherapy treatment when administered simultaneously. Unlike drugs, the pollen does not attack the tumor directly, but rather stimulates the immune system.

History and curiosities

Pollen is a major source of food for bees. Worker bees travel from flower to flower collecting pollen in special "baskets" placed on their legs. The workers collect more than it serves the beehive so beekeepers have invented the screens for scraping the pollen when bees enter the hive.

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

While the bees collect, perform the task of pollinating the plants. The wind-borne pollens are responsible for most allergic reaction, not the sticky pollen. In fact, regular consumption of pollen can provide significant relief from allergies.
The bee pollen sold in granules is usually the least worked. The granules should be soft and malleable with a flowered aroma and flavor and sweet, like raw honey. The characteristic flavor “flowered” of raw honey is due to small quantities of pollen in honey.
A certain process is needed because the pollen grains of pollen have two hard external shells that surround the nutritional content. The digestive systems of bees are designed to cope with these shells, but those of humans, cats and dogs do not. Consequently, the best producers of pollen grains gently break before packing them.

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