Pollen from the Algarve Hills
This Pollen from Algarve Hills is a super food in terms of health benefits.
A 100% natural product from flower pollen, transported by bees.
Pollen is a set of tiny granules produced by flowers for their reproduction. The small pollen grains cling to the bees’ feet and hair, and fall from flower to flower as they visit. When they return to the hives, the bees pass through pollen traps, placed by the beekeepers, to collect the granules that come loose. In the beekeepers’ house, the pollen is naturally dried until it takes the form of the small yellowish grains we know.
This product of flowers and bees is considered one of the most complete super foods and an authentic booster of general well-being. On average, bee pollen is approximately 35% protein, 40% natural sugars, 5% fat, 4% to 10% water and 5% to 15% other substances (such as vitamins, minerals and antioxidants).
It has an endless list of benefits, among them it is indicated for tiredness, fatigue, blood thinning, anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant. Pollen contains all essential amino acids. In addition, it is rich in minerals, fiber, protein, plant hormones and vitamins – A, C, E, D and B complex. It is not considered safe for pregnant women or during breastfeeding, nor in cases of taking anticoagulant medication.
We can add it to yogurts, soups, fruit and/or vegetable smoothies, oatmeal or cereal. Add the beans in teas or infusions, in fruit or vegetable smoothies and in bread or cake recipes (after being reduced to powder). The recommended daily dose is one tablespoon of bee pollen (20g).
