Pollen, Bee Pollen - Superbee, 125gms
Bee pollen is one of nature's original super foods. It contains lots of protein, vitamins and minerals, and is particularly rich in vitamin B12 and amino acids.
Bee pollen also has powerful antioxidant properties.
It is collected by bees when they visit flowers in search of nectar. The pollen in the flowers sticks to the bees legs, and a small amount of is rubbed off and transferred to the stamen of the next flower they visit. This fertilizes the flower and, for many plants, enables fruit or a nut to form. (This is why we refer to "pollination" and why bees are so important to food production.")

Interesting fact: When the bees return to the hive with pollen on they're legs, they store it in the cells of the honeycomb. But before they do that, they first mix it with honey (and their gut enzymes) to create a compound known as "bee bread". This is a highly nutritious substance that is fed to and eaten by baby bees.
