ORGANIC BEE POLLEN, Spanish
Hurry up! Sales Ends In
Botanical Name: Apis mellifica
Production: This organic, raw bee pollen was collected from Cistus blossoms (aka Rock Rose). Beekeepers then ethically harvest the pollen by gently removing it from the hives without harming the bees or disturbing their routine. The pollen is carefully dried in the open air to retain optimal nutritional integrity. During the collection process, the pollen is never heated or ground up resulting in an extremely high-quality pollen which is completely natural and raw.
Bee pollen is sometimes called "Nature's gold". Just imagine, one teaspoon of pollen takes one single bee eight hours a day for one month to gather! Each bee pollen granule contains over two million grains of flower pollen and one teaspoonful contains over 2.5 billion grains of flower pollen. Consume mindfully and gratefully!
Bee pollen is considered one of nature's most complete foods as it contains nearly all nutrients required by humans. Bee pollen is rich in protein (approximately 40%), with easy to assimilate amino acids, and many vitamins, including B-complex and folic acid as well as a multitude of antioxidant flavonoids, such as myricetin, quercetin, rutin, and trans-cinnamic acid.
Over the centuries, bee pollen has been appreciated for its many uses:
- general energy booster, enhancing stamina and fighting off fatigue
- cardiovascular support attributed to potent anti-clotting powers and high content of rutin, an antioxidant bioflavonoid that helps strengthen blood vessels and may correct cholesterol levels
- respiratory support due to anti-inflammatory properties which may help with allergies and asthma
- digestive support, as it contains enzymes that can aid in digestion and improve the intestinal flora
- immune support related to antibiotic-type properties and high content of antioxidants that may protect the cells from the damaging oxidation of free radicals
Safety: Bee pollen appears to be safe for most individuals but if you have any pollen allergies, are pregnant or breastfeeding, or use blood thinning medications, please consult your healthcare provider before use.
Common Use: Start with one teaspoon, preferably taken with a piece of fruit, as the fruit fibers (raw hemicellulose) reinforce the activity of the fresh pollen. Increase your intake every day by a few grains until reaching two teaspoons a day (10 ml). For normal daily intake, you may take up to one tablespoon (15 ml), daily. Bee pollen has a slightly sweet, chalky taste and it can be added to smoothies, salads, cereal, or enjoyed in any way, preferably kept raw.
Storage: Store in a cool, dark, dry place in an airtight container. Refrigeration not required but recommended.

question "organic" label
I had an issue with our family developing inflammation from this product. When I reached out to find out the certifying body and origin of this product, I was given general information about it coming from Spain. As an organic farmer myself, I know that farms are registered with certifying bodies and that the information on origin, along with organic certification is available. OM wouldn't provide me with that information.If it is indeed certified organic, it would be great to know. If it's just being called "organic" without any certification, this is illegal labelling in Canada. Would love to know either way, but I couldn't get an answer. Another reviewer here listed this as "not organic" as well. I'm suspect.
Hi Tara,I'm sorry your family experienced a personal sensitivity to the bee pollen you purchased. Everyone is different, and although bee pollen appears to be safe for most individuals, if you have any pollen allergies, are pregnant or breastfeeding, or use blood thinning medications, we recommend that you always consult your healthcare provider before use.All items listed on our website as ORGANIC are certified organic to US/Canadian standards unless stated otherwise (we have a small amount of wild-harvested herbs or items like salt, clay, etc.), and must be submitted to and approved by PRO-CERT prior to purchase and sale. Our products meet all regulations, and are tested for other things such as salmonella, other bacteria, and heavy metals - all tests come back negative, otherwise, the product is not purchased. We are inspected, audited, and go through a huge amount of effort every year to upkeep and maintain the integrity of our products and the 'organic' label. I feel this label goes far beyond what most people expect it to mean and has maintained my commitment and trust in organics and the importance of certification.Our bee pollen is certified organic and meets all of our quality and federal certification standards. Hope this helps!
