Bee pollen is the soft yellow dust from flowers that bees brush into the pollen sacs on their back legs. Bee Pollen is 40% protein, has antimicrobial properties and is a great energy source. Bee pollen can be added to juices, smoothies or even eaten plain. The taste may take some getting used to however, the benefits far outweigh the taste! One teaspoon of bee pollen takes one bee eight hours a day, for a month to gather.
Bee pollen is nutrient dense as it contains vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates, lipids and protein making bee pollen the perfect addition to smoothies for a nutritional boost!
