Bee Pollen is one of nature’s most perfect foods. It is the tiny particles of male flower seeds that are carried from flower to flower on the legs and bodies of bees in the process of pollination. The same ‘magic’ dust which makes several hundred crops grow, also benefits our own health.

The miracle of mother nature cannot be made in a laboratory, either. Not one successful batch of artificial bee pollen has ever been made by scientists – but that would be nearly impossible considering that bee pollen is tiny particles from literally hundreds of different flower varieties. If bees are fed man-made pollen, they die. Pollen gathered from bees rather than from flowers themselves is the only true bee pollen.

Made up of 40% perfect protein with all the essential amino acids, just one teaspoon of bee pollen contains approximately 2.5 billion grains. A quarter of this is protein which can be used immediately by the body as soon as it is ingested. And while you should begin with small doses because a very small percentage of the population is allergic to bee pollen, most people feel rejuvenated and energized after continued ingestion.

Bee pollen is more nutritionally dense than brewer’s yeast or wheat germ. It has been used in Chinese medicine for centuries, and helps prevent infectious disease, rebuilds blood, helps promote intestinal health, reduces sugar cravings and drug and alcohol addictions, and even helps with developmental issues in children.

Bee pollen is a natural antibiotic and contains a rich supply of minerals (59 different trace minerals), vitamins (like vitamins A, E, C, K, D, B1, B2, B6, nicotinic acid, folic acid, and pantothenic acid), carotenoids, hormones, and enzymes along with healthy fats and a perfect amino acid combination. It is a true superfood that can boost health tremendously.

Science is slow in proving the benefits of natural substances. However, bee pollen has been used for centuries and has reported benefits. Some bee pollen benefits are:

  • Asthma treatment
  • Depression
  • Obesity
  • Inflammation
  • Digestive problems
  • Skin tonic
  • Cardio health
  • Allergy relief
  • Increased energy

7 Compelling Reasons Why You Should Support NationofChange

Our readers often tell us why they’ve decided to step up and become supporters. Here are some of the top reasons people are giving.

1. You’re keeping independent journalism alive
The corporate owned media has proven that it can’t be trusted. In a media landscape wrought with spin and corruption, NationofChange stands in very scarce company.

2. You’re sticking it to the rich, powerful, and corrupt
When you have money in this country you can get away with damn near anything, and they do. NationofChange isn’t afraid to expose these criminals no matter how powerful they are.

3. Your donation is 100% tax-deductible
NationofChange is a 501(c)3 charity. People tend to assume that many other organizations are (most nonprofits are NOT) but it’s that 501(c)3 status is a bit more rare than you think.
