Gina Lanierís Information Gathered on Bee Pollen
What you really need to know about Bee Pollen that no one will tell you!
That is to say, that pollen gathered from a single source is not what you want. It may be excellent pollen. However, it does not have everything that you need. It is a single source and will only have the qualities of that particular plant. I have found sites touting the anti oxidant properties of pollen collected from the blueberry pollination. Sure, it has the anti oxidant properties of the blueberries. I agree with that completely. However, it does not have all the diversity of wild collected pollen where bees collect pollen from all different kinds of flowering and pollen producing plants, trees and flowers.
The example I can use to explain this is: You might have excellent single source pollen! Great! When analyzed, you will find that what ever proteins and minerals not available from that single source will not be in the pollen. That is like saying, ď I have the best bread in the world! Well, that is wonderful that you have the best bread in the world. However, the best bread in the world is not nutritionally complete.
Only wild gathered pollen has all of the nutrients, proteins, vitamins, minerals and so forth because it is collected from bees that forage on a multitude of different pollens.
The nutrition of bees that are managed by man has caused the demise in bee population due to malnutrition. Which causes a poor immune system, which leads to several invasive pathogens being able to gain the upper hand in their system to cause health problems for the bees. For instance: Say that a commercial beekeeper brings his bees to do the blueberry pollination. Then they are moved to another crop, maybe cantaloupe or some other fruit or vegetable. Then the poor little bees are trucked to the largest pollination on the planet, Almonds. Then once again they are moved to yet another crop. By only being able to gather pollen from these certain few plants, they bees have a nutritional deficiency. It is like the person that only eats meat, bread, corn and potatoes. The diet is not diverse enough to provide the body with all the necessary substances needed for proper nutrition. So, the bees are malnourished, the pollen gathered from these same bees does not have the diversity to provide adequate nutrition.
So, stay away from single source pollen. Always buy wild gathered pollen from pristine sources like National Forest, High Mountains, Deserts and Rain Forests. These sources will provide maximum nutrients in the pollen gathered and be able to deliver it to you. Another thing that helps in absorption of pollen is to stir it into yogurt, kefir, cottage cheese or even a pure source of water to soften before ingestion. This helps the body to absorb as much nutrients from the pollen as possible. We all want to get the most out of everything that we can and stirring pollen in something we are going to eat for breakfast is a good way to get the most bang for your buck out of pollen.
The pollen provided by me to all of my customers is the
I have researched this product for over twenty years. My sources are only from wild gathered pollen. My dried pollen comes from the pristine Yukon Valley. The Yukon Territory in northern Canada is adjacent to the American state of Alaska. My pollen collector has spent may years perfecting his craft and has planted many diverse seeds to keep the quality of the pollen collected to the highest vibration level possible. The fresh pollen I have available some times of the year has been collected in the Cherokee National Forest, Nantahala National Forest and the Great Smokey Mountains National Park. These places are pristine in nature and have not been as contaminated by man. Therefore, the pollen available through me is the purest pollens available in North America. I have done my research and assure you of the finest quality available on the North American Continent.
