BIOLOGICAL AND THERAPEUTIC PROPERTIES

The application of bee pollen in Apitherapy has a long history. the medicinal properties
were known and recommended by old pharmacies of Hippocrates, Pliny the Elder,
and Pythagoras.
The perfect food- Pollen is one of the richest natural sources of nutrients and contains all
the necessary nutritive substances for the creation of new life and most of the nutrients
for further development.

because amino acid phenylalanine affects the center that regulates hunger and satiety. In
the case of excess weight reduces the need for food, and in thin stimulates appetite.

hormonal effects, beneficial effect on the work of sex gland in men (increase potency and
sperm count) and women (relieves menstrual and menopausal problems).

Bee pollen is one of the richest natural sources of nutrients, especially vitamins and
minerals required at any stage of life. Despite reasonable scientific critical attitude,
according to which there is insufficient reliable evidence about the beneficial effects of
pollen, information that gave folk medicine, acquired for centuries and proven
numerous times shows that should not be lightly dismissed, by modern
medicinal studies that often misses the basic healing knowledge. After
all, modern researchers today often prove what our ancestors knew yesterday.
I recommend it for others every day.
