(NaturalNews) Bee pollen can be described as one of the most nutritious foods on the planet. It has been referred to as a "Nature`s fountain of youth" because it provides so many health benefits. It may even be a cure for certain health problems.

Bee pollen has been used for thousands of years. It was used by the early Egyptian and Chinese civilizations. It was also used by Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, 2500 years ago.

Bee pollen is made from plant pollen, a dust sized seed found on the stamen or male reproductive organ, of all flowers. As bees collect nectar from flowers, the pollen sticks to their legs. Bee pollen looks like tiny yellow, tan, orange, and brown balls. The taste can vary depending on what type of plant it comes from. It can be bitter or can have a sweet, nutty flavor.

One of the most amazing things about bee pollen is that it contains all of the nutrients that you need to live. Some studies have shown that mice only fed bee pollen showed no signs of malnourishment. Bee pollen consists of 55% carbohydrates, 35% protein, 3% vitamins and minerals, 2% fatty acids, and 5% other substances. It also contains 14.2% fiber. Bee pollen contains 5 to 7 times the amino acids found in equal weights of beef, milk, eggs or cheese. It is also very high in Vitamin B-complex, which is needed in order to help the body function correctly, and several antioxidants including lycopene, selenium, beta carotene, vitamin C, and vitamin E. It also contains lecithin, which has been shown to normalize cholesterol and triglycerides, and it decreases LDL cholesterol, the "bad cholesterol," and increases HDL cholesterol, the "good cholesterol."

Bee pollen offers many benefits:

1. It increases energy levels, most likely due to its high concentration of B vitamins, protein, and amino acids. You may feel a significant increase in your energy levels right away, and it will also improve your stamina and endurance.

2. It may help with weight loss. It contains lecithin, which helps to remove fat from the body and also increases metabolism (or the rate that your body burns fat). Bee pollen also has some diuretic capabilities, which help to decrease food cravings and hunger pangs. This also helps with weight loss.

3. It may help decrease allergy symptoms, and the frequency and severity of asthma attacks may also be reduced. By reducing the amount of histamine the body releases, the body`s allergic response may be stopped before it begins.

In addition to these benefits, bee pollen also is beneficial in improving your immune system, decreasing menstrual cramps, decreasing acne, helping wounds heal quicker, decreasing depression and fatigue, normalizing blood glucose levels, which can help prevent diabetes, improving migraine headaches, improving fertility in males and females, relieving prostate problems, helping with digestive problems, and increasing libido. By helping in all of these different areas, bee pollen may ultimately slow down the aging process. All it takes is 1 teaspoon a day to see a difference. It can also be applied topically as an ointment, which can help with skin problems.
