The breakdown of nutrients in bee pollen can vary according to season, location and source but it is approximately 30 – 40% protein, followed by 55% carbohydrates, 3% of all minerals and vitamins and 2% fatty acids.
The pollen is an abundant source of proteins, amino acids, hormones, enzymes, minerals, vitamins and healthy fats. It also contains as well important amounts of natural antibiotics.
Most of the known vitamins in pollen exist in proportional balance which further heightens their worth.
The incredible amount of vitamins contained in the there are vitamins A, B- Complex(which includes B12), C and E, which together provide both energy and a powerful source of antioxidants.
All the essential amino acids (which our bodies cannot make) are to be found in bee pollen such as isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan and valine. These essential amino acids are readily absorbed by the body and can be used immediately.
The protein found in bee pollen is denser than any other animal sources, and pound for pound contains more than double the amount of muscle building protein that is found in beef, milk eggs or cheese .
This is why it is of considerable interest to bodybuilders, vegetarians and people who wish to increase their levels of protein safely without leaving themselves vulnerable to saturated fats.
