Bee pollen is made from the pollen grain that is collected by honeybees and returned to their hive.
Often referred to as "Ambrosia", which means "Food of God" in Greek mythology, bee pollen contains an impressive selection of valuable nutrients, including protein, vitamins (A, B complex, C, D & E), minerals (selenium, magnesium, calcium, copper, iron, silica, phosphorous, sulphur, chlorine and manganese), amino acids, enzymes, coenzymes, lecithin, carbohydrates (in the form of natural sugars), fatty acids, hormones and trace elements.
