I began eating bee pollen about 10 years ago.
I'd read good things about it, and decided to
add a teaspoonful to my mid-day yogurt. A few
years later, when I began grinding my own
golden flaxseed, I added the daily spoonful of
bee pollen to the flaxseed, and ground them
up together. I still do that today. Grinding
the bee pollen makes sure that all its many
nutrients are easily assimilated by my body.
Turns out I made a very wise decision in adding bee pollen to my eating regimen. It's
only recently I've learned what a truly superb food it is. I'd like to share some of that information with you today. Much of it
comes from Dr. Felix Murat's little book. Bee
Pollen: Miracle Food, and Paul Pitchford's
book, Healing With Whole Foods. I also did
some reseach on the net.
What is it? Bee pollen consists of blended
pollen grains that are collected by honeybees,
from a wide variety of plants. It contains
EVERY vitamin known, as well as all 22 elements needed by our bodies. Bee pollen
contains ALL the amino acids which are
indispensable for our diet, and which our
bodies cannot make or synthesize.
Bee pollen is 30 to 40 percent protein. one-half of its protein is in the form of those
amino acids I just mentioned, so your body
can use them immediately. Bee pollen contains
25 trace elements, and many active enzymes
and co-enzymes. Nearly 10 percent of bee pollen consists of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty
acids -- a perfect blend of these much-needed
fatty acids. Bee pollen contains more protein
than beef, eggs, or cheese.
The Greeks and Romans called bee pollen the"life giving dust," and the secret "ambrosia."
There are some people who think you could live
on bee pollen alone. One of these days, I may
try it. The United States Dept of Agriculture
had this to say about bee pollen (back in the
1960s, before big industry took over so many
government agencies). "Bee pollen is the most
nutritious food you can eat. It contains every
nutrient required to sustain and support life
in a pure, raw, unadulterated form." In French
labs, mice have been kept alive for 6 months,
perfectly healthy, with no other food except
In addition to being perhaps the perfect
nutritional food, bee pollen has a proven
reputation as a healing food. Here are some
of the illnesses and degenerative conditions
that bee pollen has been known to heal.
1) Bee pollen destroys harmful bacteria in the
intestines. It contains a natural antibiotic
which destroys salmonella and other harmful
2) Bee pollen has an astounding record at
reversing prostate cancer and prostatitis (inflammation of the prostate). Many men
who were scheduled for prostate surgery,
were able to cancel the operations after
eating bee pollen daily for several months.
I will list a website at the end of this
message, where you can read some compelling
testimonials to bee pollen's healing power.
If you're a man in your 30s or 40s, and you
want to eliminate all worries about prostate
cancer, begin eating a spoonful of bee pollen
3) Bee pollen is wonderful for eliminating
allergies like Hay Fever. You should begin
eating it 6 weeks before allergy season. The
bee pollen (not to be confused with flower pollen) immunizes your immune system.
4) Bee pollen reduces the craving for alcohol
and street drugs and other addictions.
5) It's great for chronic constipation or
diarrhea, as well as other intestinal problems.
6) Bee pollen helps to overcome retardation
and other developmental problems in children.
Mentally retarded children often respond to
doses of bee pollen and glutamic acid.
7) Bee pollen helps chelate (flush out) poisons and toxins from the human body.
8) It helps overcome infertility in women,
and makes men more sexually potent.
9) Bee pollen is useful during pregnancy and
lactation. It helps a woman to build energy.
10) It helps relieve diabetic symptoms.
11) Bee pollen helps prevent communicable
diseases, like colds and flu.
12) Bee pollen provides the nutrients that
our immune systems need to remain at peak
13) It helps lessen depression, and is believed to slow down the aging process.
14) Bee pollen can help children with ADD,
or those who suffer from aenemia.
15) It is thought to protect against radiation. and to have anti-cancer qualities.
16) And last but hardly least, bee pollen will
help lower blood pressure. Most of you know
that more people die from heart attacks caused
by high blood pressure, than any other single
illness. Here's how it works.
Each of us has 35,000 miles of blood capillaries. If you put them end-to-end, they
would easily stretch completely around the Earth. The SAD diet creates thick, viscous,
dirty blood, and this nasty sludge accumulates
in your capillaries. If just a fraction of
those many miles of capillaries in your brain
should burst, it can kill you or leave you
partially or permanently paralyzed.
Bee pollen helps clean the blood. It flushes
out the impurities which cause high blood
pressure. It helps oxygen to reach all your
cells, especially those in your brain. If you
eat a sane and healthy diet, and eat some
bee pollen every day, you won't have to worry
about heart attacks or strokes.
You can buy bee pollen in almost any health
food store. About 6 years ago, I ran across
a small company in the woods of Wisconsin
called Beehive Botanicals. I buy my bee pollen, propolis, and royal jelly capsules
from them. I do NOT work for them, or have
any arrangements with them! Not them and not
anybody! But I like to share my resources,
just as many of us do at CZ. I enjoy Giving Back to people like you who share my values.
Their website is:
Their phone number is 1-800-233-4483
During July and December, Beehive Botanicals
sells everything 2 for 1. So if you buy a
pound of bee pollen for $17.00, you get an
extra pound free. This is the time of year
I stock up on their products. Two pounds of
bee pollen lasts one person a LONG time.
You can also do a Search of the net. There
are many sources of quality bee pollen. Trust
While you're on the net, go to this website
and read some of the compelling testimonials.
It's the GC Life Center for Health. When you
get to the homepage, click down about 14
times, and you'll come to the testimonials.
I think you'll be impressed, as I was --
espcially you men who want to avoid prostate
That's all for now! Thanks for staying with me. I hope some of this information resonates
with you. The regulars here at CZ know that
I would never recommend something which I
hadn't used myself for years. Bee pollen
is one of the reasons I'm radiantly healthy
Final thought: When you eat the bee pollen,
thank all the little bees who created this
wonderful food for you. Honeybees work 8 hours
a day, and live only 4 to 6 weeks. We are in
their debt. Thank them, and thank all the
beings who had anything to do with putting
your good food in front of you; not just
bee pollen, but every food that is alive.
The grace I say before eating any living
food is this: "You are my food. May the very
best of you, become the very best of me."
Try saying it for a couple of months. It
will come to seem very natural and very right.
Enjoy your bee pollen in good health!
