Candace Liccione – Herban Living – Bee Pollen

GRASONVILLE, MDThursday morningI would imagine not too many people know what bee pollen really is. Most of us have heard of it and know it is good for us but not what it is. It is pollen collected by the bees. It takes at least 50 trips worth of pollen to bring 1 gram of pollen back to the hive. Bee keepers actually place scrapers in the hive entrance to remove pollen from the bees on their entrance back into the hive. Bee pollen is used medicinally for energy, stress relief, as a general body tonic, to enhance your immune system and for physical and mental performance. Because it is rich in protein, vitamins and minerals, bee pollen stimulates the metabolism and promotes healthy growth. Bees give us other products such as royal jelly which is food that is fed to queen bees, propolis which is a resinous substance collected from trees and used to block fungi, bacteria and viruses  in the hive and of course, honey which is also really, really good for you!. There is a caution for people who have pollen allergies may be allergic to bee pollen. Next time you are out in the garden take a moment to appreciate the bees who work so hard for other bees and for us! >>Candace
