Pollen: The traditional food of vitality and form
Pollen comes from the male seed of the flowers (stamens) that stick to the paws of the bees. It is the essential food of the larvae of the bees. The majority of amino acids are present in pollen (20 out of 22), in high concentration. Its richness in mineral salts (potassium, magnesium, calcium, sodium, iron, silicon, phosphorus), vitamins (groups B, C, E and provitamin a), enzymes and antioxidants makes it an exceptional alicament. Pollen action is multiple:
- Seasonal Allergies
- Physical and intellectual fatigue,
- Immune system,
- Prostate disorders...
It causes a general stimulation of the organism. Prefer fresh pollen and short circuit because the storage of pollen damages some of its principles. Our selection: Herba Viva Pollen Multi Floral Bio Doypack 200g
Propolis is a mixture of resinous substances that bees find on coniferous kittens and on tree buds. They use this crop with viscous consistency to protect the hive of microbes, once enriched with their salivary secretions. Also, the propolis is deposited at the entrance of the hive (in Greek, Propolis = “before the city”) but is also used indoors to control the impurities by coatinging them. The propolis is found in flavonoids (antimicrobials) and phenols (antiseptics) as well as vitamins (A, B, E) and minerals (zinc, silver, chromium, nickel, selenium, copper, magnesium, iron, manganese, silicon). Propolis is recommended for:
- Relieve skin problems (mild burns, herpes, acne, fungal infections)
- To relieve mucosal lesions (canker, gingivitis).
- Preventing viral and bacterial infections
- Protects the airways.
Propolis is found in the form of an extract diluted in alcohol, ointment or in solid form. Not all the propolis offered on the market are of the same quality; It depends on the method of collection that guarantees a more or less pure propolis.
