Honey bee pollen is created from flower pollen bees bring back to the hive. Mixed with nectar and enzymes secreted by worker bees who pack the pollen granules into comb cells, these granules, known as bee pollen or bee bread, are the primary source of protein for bees.
Bee pollen varies in composition depending on the floral pollen collected. In general, bee pollen consists of 55% carbohydrates, 35% proteins (and all 22 protein-building amino acids), 3% vitamins (carotenoids, B-complex etc.), minerals (mostly phosphorus, potassium, calcium and magnesium), 2% fatty acids, and 5% other compounds (enzymes, trace elements and antioxidants).
The benefits of bee pollen are many. Traditional uses include natural allergy relief, for building stamina, strength and endurance in athletes, as an immune system booster, for gastrointestinal problems and as a natural anti-inflammatory.
