What is "raw" pollen?
Raw bee pollen is simply grains of flower pollen packed into edible granules by honey bees. Bee pollen is what is fed to the young bees! It is considered one of nature’s most completely nourishing foods as it contains nearly all nutrients required by humans.

Health Benefits of Raw Pollen
Rich in Protein
Made up of over 40% protein, bee pollen contains more protein than any animal source (it is, after all, a plant-based source of protein since it simply comes from the flowers of plants)!
Consuming bee pollen local to your community is a great way to slowly gain immunity against season allergies! Just make sure you are not allergic to pollen, first (by testing with a very small amount).

Raw pollen is made up of many other nutritional ingredients, such as amino acids, the entire vitamin B-complex, and folic acid. It is known to boost immune systems and help fight off a variety of illnesses.
