The exact composition and nutritional properties of each bee pollen pellet is dependent on the plants from which the pollen was collected. Yet whilst there will be some degree of variation, chemical analysis has shown that bee pollen contains up to 200 different substances, including amino acids (the building blocks of protein), vitamins, minerals (such as potassium, calcium, magnesium, zinc and iron) trace elements, enzymes or co-enzymes and fatty acids. It is also rich in carotenes and B complex vitamins.
Bee pollen is one of Nature’s most perfect foods. As an excellent source of essential nutritional elements, it can be useful in convalescence, when training for sports and for general well-being.
