Product Description

Pollen is considered by many the perfect food, because it contains the complete range of nutrients useful in life, pollen has always been used as a tonic thanks to its many properties. Like royal jelly and propolis, pollen is a hive product, however, unlike the other two substances, it is not processed directly by the bees but simply collected from the flowers to use it as a food for the worker bees and in the preparation of royal jelly for the queen bee. It is in fact one of the main ingredients in the diet of bees. Consisting of male germ cells of plants (the spermatophytes), it comes as a fine yellow or light brown powder. The worker bees, traveling from flower to flower, collecting pollen in special "baskets" placed on their legs. Some pollens are light, dry, and destined to be dispersed by the wind. These are responsible for the most common allergies or hay fever. Other pollens are heavier and sticky and disperse with difficulty so it is less likely they be source of allergies, they stick to the insects visiting the plants, like microscopic "hitchhikers,"as they are carried from plant to plant guaranteeing reproduction.
