Pollen beneficial properties and contraindications

A man from ancient times used bee products for treatment and has long appreciated pollen for the ability to maintain strength, heal diseases and restore health, give vigor and joy of life at any age. Extreme nutritional value, richness of vitamin and mineral composition - this is what makes flower pollen an indispensable tool for the treatment and prevention of diseases.

What is pollen?

Flower pollen is the male reproductive cells of plants intended for reproduction. Getting on the pistil of the flower, the pollen moves inward and fertilizes the ovary, from which the fruit will later be formed. Pollen particles of each species are unique and allow you to determine exactly which plant they belong to.

During the excavation of the Egyptian pyramids were found vessels with honey collected three thousand years ago. Investigating honey under a microscope, scientists discovered various pollen grains in it, which were used to determine which flowers grew in the floodplain of the Nile and were used by people for beekeeping in those distant times.

When a bee flies from a flower to a flower, the pollen sticks to its body, covered with a fluff, and hits the neighboring flowers, providing them with reliable pollination. An insect cleans its prey with its paws and puts it tightly in special pockets on its hind legs. The color of pollen varies from white to dark purple and brown - it depends on the type of plants that the worker bee visited. In the hive, pollen is used to feed the growing larvae and worker bees.

A man learned to put special barriers for collecting pollen clumps (pollen) and use the crop for his own purposes.

Composition and useful properties

Since pollen is intended for plant propagation, it is a concentrate of biologically active substances, vitamins and trace elements.

More than 10 amino acids, about 15 vitamins, 27 microelements, natural antibiotics and mood enhancing substances have been found in pollen.

    Pollen varieties

    Since the bees collect pollen from different plants, it differs in shade, weight and size. Certain breeds of bees collect pollen according to a special scheme: some mix the pollen of various plants (mainly Georgian breeds have this property), others collect homogeneous pollen collected from plants of the same type.

    Depending on the plants, pollen is divided into the following species:

    Anemophilic pollen is light, with a smooth surface, small in size and contains substances that cannot be digested by bees. Its chemical composition is not rich, so it is unsuitable for the "bread" of bees. Anemofilnye plants do not have flavor, small, do not contain nectaries and pollinated by the wind. However, some species of these plants are visited by bees to collect pollen. Basically it is hazel nuts, chestnuts, corn. Their pollen acts as a source of protein.

    Entomophilic pollen is heavy, sticky, equipped with different processes, firmly attached to the legs of bees. This is the pollen of honey plants with a bright smell. It includes a large number of amino acids, vitamins and organic compounds. The shape of pollen is spherical or elliptic.

    • Yellow - sunflower, willow, dandelion, mustard,
    • White - cornflower,
