Collected on the flowers by the worker-bees the pollen becomes entomophilus after a re-elaboration (salivary secretions and nectar). Differently from the anemophilus pollen, this one does not create allergies (excluded cases of people with verified sensibilities). The process which the pollen particle undergoes by the bee (digestive enzymes) results even stimulating for the intestinal immune defence system.
10-20 % WATER
10-30 % PROTIDS
20-35 % GLUCIDS
15-30 % LIPIDS
2-5 % MINERAL SALTS
1-3 % OTHER COMPONENTS (vitamins, enzymes)
The pollen is the useful nourishment to integrate, in larvas diet and the adult bees, all the nutriments absent in the honey.
Thanks to this wealth and completeness of nutriments, the pollen is considered the only IPERPROTEIN MULTIVITAMINIC, MULTIMINERAL VEGETABLE RESTORATIVE existing in nature. The protein portion is formed in large part (about 50%) by essential amino acids: leucine, isoleucine, lysine, histidine, methionine, arginine, valine, threonine, glutamic acid, and tryptophan. The vitamin group is particularly completely: B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, B8, B9, B12; A, C, E, D. Mineral salts and oligoelements are present in large number: potassium, copper, iron, magnesium, zinc, fluorine and calcium.
The health indications are different even if the most known are oriented to the preparation of restorative protein products and for fighting status of psychophysical stress. Other properties recognized: against prostatic hypertrophy, against anaemia and lack of appetite, depression status.
It is the most well-known bees’ product which is produced starting from the nectar of the plants.
It is a semifluid sugary substance which is used by bees as a nutriment collected in honeycombs of the beehive.
Largely used in the food environment, it has not had any great development in dietary supplements area yet because of uncompleted processing.
B Natural is able to produce honey in powder, in different concentrations, and healing honey, in which it have been mixed active principles derived from other products of beehive like Propolis, Royal Jelly and Pollen.
It is a great nutriment excreted by nurse bees for the diet of the broad and later of the queen-bee. This gelatinous substance has been always used as a restorative and as a factor of growth for the development of children.
Synthetic chemical composition:
70 % WATER
15 % PROTIDS
12 % GLUCIDS
3 % LIPIDS
The lipidic portion is really interesting; there are keto-trans-decenoic acid, hydrox-trans-decenoic acid, sebacic acid, polemic acid and stearic acid. As reference to healthy activity of royal jelly it is used in particular a hydroxylated unsaturated acid the 10 hydroxy-delta 2- decenoic (10-HDA). The activities attributed to royal jelly are : RESTORATIVE and PROMOTER OF GROWTH. Recently some studies have proved also the cosmetic activity.
