Bee pollen is one of nature’s most nutritious and nutrient dense food in
the world, and many dub it as nature’s natural multi-vitamin. C. Leigh Broadhurst, PhD (2005) said that:
Bee pollen is a nutritional powerhouse…the ultimate nutraceutical.
Researchers at the institute of Apiculture, Taranov, Russia, said this:
Honeybee pollen is the richest source of vitamins found in Nature in
a single food.
Even if it had none of its other vital ingredients, it’s
content of rutin alone would justify taking at least a teaspoon daily,
if for no other reason than strengthening the capillaries.
extremely rich in rutin and may have the highest content of any source,
plus it provides a high content of the nucleics RNA [ribonucleic acid]
and DNA [deoxyribonucleic acid].
The humble bee pollen is densely packed with vitamins, minerals, amino
acids, enzymes, and nutritional co-factors – it’s pretty straightforward
why Broadhurst and researchers believe it to be a superfood, because it is.
Bee Pollen Nutritional Profile
So bee bread aka bee pollen, is really food for bee younglings/young
bees – it is close to 40% protein with half of that protein in the form
of free amino acids (and amino acids are the building blocks of our
protein structure in our bodies).
It contains all the necessary and
vital nutrients for humans to live, with 96 known and verified nutrients
– it is truly nutrient dense.
When taken adequately, it bridges all
nutritional deficits and gaps which are caused by eating poorly – this
is its #1 health enhancing benefit on top of its ability to improve
energy and endurance for daily or sporting activities.
weight, bee pollen wins-hands-down ALL animal sources in terms of amount
of protein provided, on top of containing more than 12+ vitamins, 28
minerals, 11 enzymes and co-enzymes and 14 fatty acids.
And it doesn’t
stop there – it has important phytochemicals too.
theorize that pollen is an “accentuator” which somehow improves the
efficacy and effectiveness of the multivitamins that you’re taking
simultaneously. This accentuating synergistic characteristic is not
common in any herb, spice or supplement in the world.
It is so nutritious that many researchers say that one
only need 20 to max 35 grams of pollen per day is enough to meet your
entire day nutritional needs… …but I won’t advise that.
You see, bee
pollen is still at best function as a supplement, and not as a
Of course, in the extreme scenario or emergency, it
is one of the best foods to have when compared to others.
there are abundance of food in a non-emergency world, please eat a
balanced diet that is rich in vegetables, superfood and take lots of
fluids and rest.
Dr Nicolai Tsitsin’s study that highlighted how the
villagers consumed a lot of bee pollen daily and not just a few
capsules/teaspoons – it’s not recommended that way.
Please balance your
diet with plenty of whole unprocessed foods such as vegetables, grains,
fruits and water – these are the best foods for us humans.
It is vital
that we take wise health supplementation today because it is not a
luxury but a necessity, given the foods today are really empty calories
and nutritionally poor, on top of eating well
So What Kinds Of Health Supplements Should I Take?
I do not endorse taking or jumping from supplements to supplements,
because I believe in taking a select few that is extremely high quality,
and quality is key.
Be it for bee pollen supplements or any other
supplements that you’re thinking of buying, you have to factor in 3 key
criteria to ensure it’s top notch in quality:
where it’s harvested from: the raw ingredients need to be harvested
from pure and pristine environments, with very little to zero exposure
to pollution, contaminants and industrialization, so that the
ingredients will be healthy and pollution-free.
the managing facility is GMP-compliant, meaning that they adhere to
strict US FDA standards on ensuring zero pollutants, employee training,
state of the art modern equipment
how the ingredients are handled: only use freeze dried high quality
pollen. Any processed or heat dried ones means that all the nutrients
and enzymes are destroyed, rendering it useless beneficially.

The bee pollen supplement I take

additional synergistic enzymes, amino acids and minerals to enhance the
The pollen is harvested from north-western corner of
south island of New Zealand, a pure and pristine area beside a national
part that is free from industrialization and airborne pollution. Its
nutritional effects will be noticed and I comfortably
personally endorse it.
When you factor in the fact that it is processed
and manufactured in GMP compliant facilities with standards that meet
the FDA’s standards for pharmaceutical-grade quality drugs, it’s even
Basically earning this a nutraceutical status (highest label for
a supplement in terms of quality), and this is not common nor easily
found in the US.
The manufacturer also offers a 365 days money back
guarantee or full product replacement – something the health world don’t
offer today. It’s also less expensive than other supplements while
still maintaining a high level of quality, pharmaceutical quality.
been taking this personally since 2014, and I honestly say this: it has
helped me a lot in my life, giving me all the energy, health and
wellness I need to handle my 5 AM to 10 PM days everyday, young
children, family, manage multiple busy physiotherapy clinics, meetings,
investments, readings etc.
To me, it’s one of my favorite and important
supplements that I take every day. Without fail.
Buy your from a GMP-compliant manufacturing facility that has certificate
of analysis (COA) for every batch produced. This certifies product quality.
As most of the bee pollen supplements and products sold in
the world and US comes from China, most of these honeybee bread batches have actually been shown to be
You need to know the source from
where it is coming from.
So in order to obtain the
healthiest and best bee pollen supplement, please make sure the source
is as pristine as possible with the product being produced at
Facilities that are GMP registered comply with the most rigid standards (pharmaceutical/nutraceutical grade) so as to minimize the possibility of
product contaminants as well as providing the best health benefits.
These are the same standards pharmaceutical companies in the United States are required to operate under as
mandated by the FDA.
Heat processing or heat drying bee pollen burns and kills the sensitive enzymes (and most of the health benefits).
This also prevents the bread from becoming oxidized thus maintaining nutritional
potency. (Remember, with most granules or bread, 95% of its nutritional value isn't
even assimilated and this is why.)
Ideally, make sure the bread benefit or product rather does not contain any fillers or additives such as
sucrose (sugar), starch, gluten, silica (sand) or any other artificial colors, dyes, or flavors.
What Are Bee Pollen Users Saying About Xtend Life’s Pollen Natural Energy?
It’s very important to learn about any health product before you start
using it. While the official websites do contain a host of details about
these products, the best source of information on whether a supplement
works or not would come from the feedbacks of people who had actually
used the product.
I used to feel like I needed a
nap after work and didn't have the energy to get anything done around
the house or take my little girl outside to play. It was making me
depressed and miserable. After the first few days of taking Xtend Life Bee Pollen supplement I all
the sudden realized I wasn't feeling tired and sluggish anymore.
feel jittery or crash at the end of the day. I am still able to fall
asleep at night-I just have the energy I need to make through the whole
I have also lost about 12 lbs in the past month. I don't know if
its the product or just from having more energy and moving more.
4 Stars - The power it helps to gives me is fantastic considering my age
Diana, Australia on Mar 09, 2016
As for the Natural Energy bee

this product the day before, in the middle of the day.

5 Stars - I will probably never stop taking it!
Doreen on Jan 11, 2017
I have been taking
Xtend Life's Natural Energy Bee Pollen for one year now, and will
probably never stop taking it. It was recommended to me by my doctor to
help with my overall well-being. Strangely, I found this product to
really help me with hot flashes and I think it helps me sleep better at
night as well. I can honestly tell a difference when I miss taking it.
highly recommend Natural Energy Bee Pollen from Xtendlife!! I won't buy
it here in the USA as I don't think the quality is as good.
It is a
definite 5 stars!
Because when I miss taking it (which I do not miss
any doses any more) the hot flashes come back. I do like taking the bee
pollen a lot!
