Health Benefits of Bee PollenLongevity
There are many reports, articles and books that have been written attesting to the ability of Bee Pollen to extend one’s life, slow down the aging process and enhance youthfulness. These reports date back to the beginning of civilization as we know it. The Chinese emperor Shen Nung compiled a medical encyclopedia back in 2735 BC, which extols the virtues of Bee Hive products.
Throughout the ages much has been written about the health giving properties of Bee Pollen… and about the positive effect it can have on slowing down the premature aging of skin.
Much of the modern research on Bee Pollen has been carried out in Europe. Unfortunately back in the 1940’s in the USA there was a definite swing to synthetic pharmaceutical drugs and as such many natural therapies and products were sidelined for economic reasons.
Typical of the comments which come from knowledgeable researchers and physicians are that of Dr G Liebold, a physician and psychologist of Karlsrude, Germany who maintains that:
  • “Bee Pollen is an excellent prophylaxis and therapeutic treatment against the precocious symptoms of old age. It should be considered a universal geriatric treatment in the form of a natural remedy”.
He is not alone in this view as many other researchers and physicians have noted:
  • “an increase in mental and physical abilities, improvement in metabolic systems and the removal of other cardiovascular symptoms such as arteriosclerosis, cerebral insufficiency, and other sequelae”.
 
Bee pollen appears to work wonders for weight control by correcting a possible chemical imbalance, which may be involved in abnormal weight gain.
  • It helps speed up caloric burn by stimulating the metabolic system.
  • It also contains a high percentage of lecithin that helps dissolve and flush fat from the body. As a side benefit this same process is very effective in lowering the bad LDL cholesterol in the blood.
  • It also helps eliminate cravings. This is due in part to the natural phenylalanine (an amino acid) present, which acts as a natural appetite suppressant. A synthetic version of phenylalanine called phenylpropanplamine has been developed and is present in common over the counter weight loss products and other pharmaceutical weight loss drugs. This synthetic version chemically suppresses your appetite irrespective of whether you are overweight or not and has serious side effects. It can also be addictive. However, the natural version will not artificially suppress appetite if your body is undernourished or underweight.
 
Health Benefits of Bee PollenSexual Function
This is an interesting subject particularly these days with such a proliferation of herbal ‘sex products’ on the market. Unfortunately most of the products being promoted are little more than placebos. To improve sexual performance your mind and your body both have to be healthy. Your hormones also have to be balanced. It is dangerous to ‘play around’ with hormones ‘chemically’. Your hormones should be balanced by the ingestion of only natural substances.
In addition to the amino acids within Bee Pollen which are precursors to HGH, Bee Pollen also contains a gonadotropic hormone very similar to the human pituitary hormone, gonadotropin, which functions as a sex gland hormone.
Research conducted at various European Universities have shown in trials conducted with impotent men that:
  • More than half of those given bee pollen experienced a dramatic improvement of sperm.
  • Most gained a higher level of self-confidence, and were able to perform better sexually… after just one month of taking bee pollen.
Noel Johnson, a marathon runner in his nineties has written two autobiographies. One is called ‘A Dud at 70 – A Stud at 80’ and the other ‘The living Proof’. He says, “I derive special nutrients from bee pollen. It gives me the energy I need to engage in marathons… and other physical activities!”.
There are also many studies, which have established that bee pollen is very helpful in restoring the health of females reproductive systems. Relief from the discomfort of PMS has also been observed in these studies.
 
Health Benefits of Bee PollenOther Medical Miracles
There is a wealth of information available on the amazing medical results that have been achieved through the use of bee pollen. Bee pollen is proven to be very effective in building a strong immune system and reversing a large number of ailments in humans.
It is not practical to list here the many clinical trials that have been done on bee pollen and in particular those relating to cancer. However, we will relate a particularly interesting study that the US Dept of Agriculture carried out. Most of the other trials were in Europe.
This particular study was published in the:
  • ‘Journal of the National Cancer Institute’ over 50 years ago in 1948. The article is entitled ‘Delay in the Appearance of Palpable Mammary Tumors in C3H Mice Following the ingestion of Pollenized Food’.
  • The author was William Robinson of the US Bureau of Entomology, Agricultural Research Administration.
This article relates to the results of a trial in which a strain of mice was bred specifically to develop cancer tumors and subsequently die from them. The tumors would appear in the mice when they were between 18 – 57 weeks and they would die shortly after. The pollen used in the study “was the bee gathered type”. One group of mice was fed mice chow only, whilst the other group was fed mice chow with the addition of bee pollen at a ratio of 1 part bee pollen to 10,000 parts food.
In his summary, Dr Robinson reveals the incredible results:
  • “In the mice not given bee pollen, mammary tumors appeared at an average of 31.3 weeks. Tumor incidence was 100% and they all died”.
  • “The average onset of tumors of the mice given bee pollen was 41.1 weeks… around 30% later in time”.
  • “Seven mice in the bee pollen group had still not developed a tumor at 62 weeks of age when the tests were terminated”.
Dr Robinson concluded that bee pollen contains an anti carcinogenic principle that could be added to food.
This is only one of many studies, which have been carried out using bee pollen on cancer. Some less well documented ones are even more spectacular. Unfortunately because natural products cannot be patented and as such big profits cannot be made these amazing results get very little publicity and regrettably will never become ‘mainstream’.
