The Building Blocks of Life
Scientists at Bonny Laboratories in Geneva, Switzerland, They
state, "bee pollen contains 35 percent protein, of which half is in the form of free
amino acids; (complete protein) these are the Essential Nutritive Elements of Life which
are assimilated immediately by the body."
Mme. A. Leru
Mme. Leru, chief of the French National center of Scientific
research in Paris, compared the amino acids of bee pollen with those of animal origin and
bee pollen was superior in every respect. Bee pollen contains 40 to 80 percent free
glutamic acid an amino acid), which is able to cross the protective blood barrier in the
brain and the reason bee pollen has been successful to
enhance mental abilities.
Dr. Remy Chauvin, M.D.:
Dr. Remy Chauvin, M.D. With his associates at The Institute of
Bee Culture, Bures Sur Yvete, Paris, and colleagues at different institutes around Europe
have conducted more double-blind studies and basic research into the benefits of bee
pollen consumption by human beings than any other medical group. Here's a brief study of
some of their findings:
Antibiotic Qualities in Bee
"The antibiotic in honeybee pollen was extracted and found
extremely active. Certain
cultures of microbes were killed almost instantly with bee pollen extract, especially
those agents responsible in the hard-to-control diseases such as salmonella (typhoid types)."
The scientists think pollen's capacity for regulating intestinal functions may rest in
its ability to destroy harmful intestinal flora.
These scientists have found bee pollen to be helpful in
treating problems such as fatigue, allergies and other respiratory problems (e.g.,
bronchitis, sinusitis and colds).
Equally impressive, bee pollen helps balance the endocrine system, It is
especially beneficial for menstrual and prostate problems. It is also effective in treating constipation and colitis, colibacillosis,
anemia, circulatory disorders, neurasthenia and depressive states, skin fragility
and hair loss.
Dr. G. J. Binding
Dr. G. J. Binding , a British scientist and world renowned
expert on nutrition, says, "Pollen is the finest, most
perfect food a giant germ killer which bacteria simply cannot exist in." it not only builds up
strength and energy, but increases resistance to infection
Steven Blauer, Hippocrates Health Institute, says, "Pollen reduces or eliminates
craving for heavy concentrated protein. An additional benefit is that pollen self digests,
aiding in the healthy digestion
of other food.
Dr. H. Hiliman
Dr. H. Hiliman, Director, Lee Foundation for Nutritional Research, says, "Virgil,
Hippocratic and Plink all considered Bee Pollen to contain the secret against old age."
Lars-Erik Essen, MD, Swedish dermatologist, says, "Pollen has a profound biological
effect preventing premature aging of the cells and promoting
growth of new tissue. It smoothes away wrinkles and
stimulates blood supply to all skin cells."
Dr. Maraca Hanssen, British researcher, says, "Pollen is rich
in micro elements that may not be present in the normal diet.
The presorption of pollen allows the trace elements to be incorporated in the body."
Dr. Leo Conway
Dr. Leo Conway, has treated over 60,000 cases of allergies with bee pollen and says, "I believe pollen
immunization can be achieved by incorporating bee pollen in
food. "Resistance is built by continuing ingestion of bee pollen."
"fastest human in the world"
Steve Riddick, the man Sports Illustrated once called the fastest human in the world, made
bee pollen a regular part of his training program because of its full spectrum blood building and rejuvenative properties.
Bee pollen is particularly beneficial for the extra nutrition and energy needs athletes
and those recuperating from illnesses have. It is well known to be the supplement of
choice by world class athletes as an energizer and to help give that extra edge.
Morton Walker, MD.
Bee pollen also contains natural hormonal substances that stimulate and nourish the
reproductive systems of both men and women. Sexual stamina is increased by the multitude of naturally nutritious components found in
pollen. Studies show that bee pollen does have an impact on sexual ability. Morton Walker,
M.D., a medical journalist and author states, "honey bee pollen provides greater
sexual vigor through the release of high energy chemical bonds and the generation of
adenosine triphosphate (ATP)."
WEIGHT LOSS ASPECTS
Honeybee pollen works to correct a possible chemical imbalance in body metabolism that may
be involved in either abnormal weight gain or abnormal weight loss. Bee pollen is a low
calorie food, containing only 90 calories per ounce (approximately two tablespoons of pollen). Pollen contains 15 percent
lecithin, which helps burn fat
from the body.
Henri Luzuy, M.D.
Beauty and Bee Pollen
Bee pollen has also been found to be excellent for the complexion. Many cosmetics in health food stores include bee pollen. Henri Luzuy,
M.D., in his book, Pollen: "New Biological Principle in Cosmetology" writes,
"Pollen extracts can be considered as factors of particular importance in the regeneration and rejuvenation of the skin.
The first visible effect of cosmetic preparations with a pollen extract base is the
clearing of the complexion."
