Description: Organic dry pollen
Our MELICINAL range offers the best beehive products from organic apiculture.
Bee pollen is a traditional remedy described as ‘life-giving dust’ by the Egyptians, quoted in the Bible and ancient Arabic medicinal texts (1). Honeybees mix the pollen obtained from the vegetation around them with nectar or saliva (2,3). They form small agglomerates (pellets) that are deposited in the cells of honeycomb (4,5).
Bee pollen has a very complex chemical composition and varies in size, colour, shape and weight, depending on the plant species it comes from (3).
Bee pollen is rich in secondary metabolites (flavonoids, phenolic acids, phytosterols and carotenoids), vitamins (tocopherol, niacin, thiamine, biotin and folic acid), minerals (sodium, potassium, magnesium, iron etc.), enzymes and coenzymes (5,6). Bee pollen has strong antioxidant power (7,8) and antibacterial, immunostimulant, anti-inflammatory, antianaemic, cardio-, hepato- and neuroprotective properties (3,5).
It also has significant nutritional value, since it contains proteins, carbohydrates, lipids and amino acids such as leucine, isoleucine and valine (5). This means it is recommended for people during recovery periods (e.g. after an operation) and for those who perform activities that require significant physical or mental effort (3).
MELICINAL bee pollen cares for the whole body and helps to protect and detoxify it naturally.
