Stated as the most nutritious food we can eat by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, bee pollen contains almost all the nutrients needed for the human body to function: vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates, lipids, and protein. It’s said to boost energy, improve your immune system, extend life span, fights allergies and possibly even cancer, and relieves digestive disorders. Bee pollen can also help with weight loss.
Bee pollen can absorb industrial pollution so it's important to know where it comes from and how it was harvested. Your Local Roots bee pollen comes from apiaries located at Upstate NY, natural farms. The impact of bee pollen is the most effective when eating foods grown in the same region; even more reason to get your veggies local.
Take one to three tablespoons of bee pollen daily and try it in smoothies and shakes, sprinkle on yogurt or applesauce or in granola. Experts say to skip pollen if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding or if you’re allergic to bees.
