For centuries bee pollen has held a legendary place of honor on the apothecary shelf. According to the American Apitherapy Society, ancient civilizations, including the Egyptians, Greeks and Chinese, boasted about the therapeutic and nutritional benefits of the pollen collected by the industrious bees. The cave etchings of primitive man show the use of bees in medical treatments. Even some of the best-known healers of the past, including Hippocrates and Pythagoras, prescribed the golden bee pollen gems to their patients.
While pollen collected from bees’ hives was highly prized by ancient medical practitioners, modern professionals continue to value the super-nutrient. Doctors and scientists from around the world, including the U.S., Russia, Germany, Romania and Switzerland continue to research the use of apitherapy, the use of bee products for medicinal purposes, in patients with illnesses and conditions ranging from arthritis and gout to tendonitis and severe wounds.
Bee pollen is collected from various pollinating plants by honey bees. The bees take the yellow, powdery substance back to the hive and literally pack it into the cells of the honeycomb. The bees then add nectar, enzymes, fungi, bacteria and other organisms that transform the pollen into compact nuggets, sometimes called “bee bread.” These nuggets differ in their nutritional components depending on the plant from which the pollen was taken. Generally, the substance consists of about 55 percent carbohydrates, 35 percent protein, 3 percent minerals and vitamins, 2 percent fatty acids, and about 5 percent of other components. It’s high protein content makes it especially attractive as a weight loss supplement. Of course this isn’t the only substance collected from the hive.
