MY NEWEST INTEREST/ADDICTION: Bee Pollen🐝
WHAT IS IT?
💠Bee pollen is considered one of nature’s most completely nourishing foods, containing nearly all nutrients required by humans
💠It contains all the essential components of life – they are rich in proteins, free amino acids, and vitamins, including B-complex and folic acid
💠Bee pollen in the diet acts to increase high-density lipoproteins (HDL), decrease low-density lipoproteins (LDL), and normalized blood serum cholesterol and triglyceride levels
💠Helps increase immunity and healing (such as wounds)
💠It is important to recognize that a one teaspoon dose of pollen takes one bee working eight hours a day for one month to gather (sorry little 🐝 lol)
How to use it: Incorporate 5g-10g daily (6 carbs 4protein worth) on yogurt, smoothie bowls, omelets, etc. To me, it tastes lightly sweetened and adds a great consistency to smoothie bowls! Maybe it's just another diet fad, but I like that it has the possibility of improving your immune system and super macro friendly topping for food! Have any of you found benefits to this?
