Packed with micronutrients and protein, granulated bee pollen makes for a delicious and healthy addition when sprinkled in smoothies or food. Prior to use, soak granules in a small amount of cold water for 12 hours in your refrigerator to lightly coat and crack the shells of the individual pollen grains which increases the rate of absorption from 2% – 7% to nearly 90%. If unable to soak, granules may be ground into a fine powder for use. Bee pollen is effective even in very small doses, and its effects are long lasting; do not take more than necessary. Bee pollen granules are packed with nutrients such as the minerals zinc, iron, manganese, potassium, calcium, copper and magnesium and vitamins including the B-complex vitamins and carotenes or vitamin A. You may not need to take additional vitamin supplements while you are taking this; speak to your doctor or nutritionist about your supplement needs.
