What ingredients does flower pollen have?
The proteins contained in pollen are purely plant-based and represent in significantly higher numbers compared to animal proteins. This means that the same amount of pollen contains significantly more proteins than comparable animal products such as cheese, meat or eggs. Therefore, pollen is particularly suitable for athletes, vegetarians and vegetarians. A lack of proteins can lead to fatigue, sluggishness and lack of energy. It can also promote skin and hair problems, as well as lead to weakness and slackness of muscles.
For humans, the proteins isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan and valine are considered essential amino acids. This means that they must be fed with food, as the human body cannot form them alone. On the other hand, they are very important for the construction of new or the renewal of existing cells, as well as for the formation of musel fibers. Important bodily functions can only be guaranteed if all amino acids are available to the body. If the body lacks an amino acid or if we no longer produce an endogenous active ingredient such as a hormone due to the absence of an endogenous active ingredient, important bodily functions can no longer be optimally maintained.
Antioxidants in flower pollen
Flower pollen has a high antioxidant effect. Antioxidants are of great importance to our bodies as they provide protection against the harmful effects of so-called "free radicals". They reduce the effects of oxidative stress and related diseases. Due to the high number of antioxidants contained in the pollen, the ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorption Capacity, the unit of measurement used to measure the content of radical scavengers in food) is 164. This means that the value is above the value of all fruits and vegetables and thus actively supports our immune system.
The antioxidants rutin and carotenoids contained in the pollen are of particular importance.
Rutin protects cells, tissues and the skin through an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effect. Rutin also has a positive effect on blood sugar and cholesterol levels and improves metabolism. It promotes the build-up of elastic collagen fibers in the skin and inhibits the aging of the tissue. Rutin also protects nerves, eyes and brain, has a blood thinning effect and has a positive effect on high blood pressure.
Carotenoids can prevent the production of free radicals or reduce the damage caused by free radicals. The proportion of carotenoids contained in pollen is 20 times higher than in carrots. By converting the body into vitamin A, carotenoids have a positive effect on the skin, visual organs and blood cells.
Low fats in pollen
The fats contained in pollen consist of about 70% of the omega-3 fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid, about 4% of the omega-6 fatty acid linoleic acid and about 17% of monounsaturated and saturated fatty acids. Adolescents aged 15 and over and adults should only cover a maximum of 30% of their daily energy needs via fats. With its low fat content, flower pollen is therefore particularly important for a balanced and healthy diet.
The lecithin, which occurs in about 10%-15% in the pollen, is important for the processing of fats. The task of lecithins is to distribute and convert fats from the diet. Lecithin has an extremely positive effect on our organism. It protects the liver cells and thus supports our most important organ for the detoxification of our body. It is used for performance and concentration as it strengthens nerve and brain cells. Lecithin is also involved in metabolism and is part of the mucus layer of the lungs and intestines, as well as the cell membrane.
Flower pollen is vitamin bombs
It is fair to say that pollen is a true vitamin bomb, because pollen contains almost all vitamins:
• Vitamin B1 to B12
• Vitamin C
• Vitamin D
• Vitamin E
• Vitamin K
• Provitamin A
The amount of vitamins B1, B2 and E is higher than has ever been found in fruits and vegetables. Vitamin B12 is also important, as this vitamin is extremely rarely found in plant-based foods. Vitamin B12 fulfils important metabolic functions such as cell division, blood formation and more. It also supports the nervous system as it promotes the build-up of nerve cells in the spinal cord.
1 gram of pollen contains about 10%-15% vitamin C. Vitamin C, also called ascorbic acid, is probably the best known of all vitamins. This vitamin is also involved in many metabolic processes and protects the cells from free radicals. Our body needs to take vitamins regularly with food. It is also popular as a dietary supplement to compensate for the deficiency symptoms of a one-sided and unhealthy diet. Our body needs vitamin C for a healthy immune system and strong defenses. The recommended amount of daily vitamin C intake is 90 to 110 milligrams per day for adolescents 15 years and older and adults. With only 1 gram of pollen, adults cover the daily requirement of vitamin C.
Minerals and trace element in flower pollen
What applies to vitamins also applies to minerals and trace elements. The sensational composition of pollen covers almost all important nutrients:
You can imagine that all these nutrients have more or less a positive influence on our organism. At this point it should be emphasized once again that flower pollen contains a ratio of all nutrients in an unmatched balance and is therefore so valuable.
Enzymes in flower pollen
And as if this weren't so sensational, flower pollen is also one of the most enzyme-rich foods in the world. Enzymes improve our body's nutrient absorption by splitting up foods and making them workable for the body. In addition, enzymes promote cell formation and cell renewal and thus also counteract the aging process.
To sum up, flower pollen is truly a superfood for bees, containing all the vital active ingredients for the human body in a unique balance and having a very positive effect on our health. Here again summarizes the effect of flower pollen.
