Bee pollen is rich in protein and is especially beneficial for vegetarians and vegans. This can provide a much safer source of protein without the worry of saturated fats in animal meat.
Bee pollen also contains the B vitamin complex, this is what provides energy and one of the reasons it is known for it revitalising and rejuvenating properties. The vitamin B complex, along with vitamins A, C, D, E, selenium, lecithin and powerful phytochemicals (carotenoids and bioflavonoids) make bee pollen a potent source of antioxidants.
The various therapeutic health benefits of bee pollen are believed to largely stem from the antioxidant and disease preventing/curing properties of bioflavonoids and carotenoids.
