New Zealand Way stocks Bee Pollen collected right here in New Zealand. It is produced when honey bees mix flower pollen with nectar or regurgitated honey to form pellets that stick to their hind legs. These pollen pellets are harvested from a bee colony and are usually sweet in taste. Some pollen types, rich in oils, stick together without nectar or honey.
Bee pollen granules are one of nature's richest and most complete sources of essential vitamins, minerals, amino-acids and enzymes. Used traditionally in many cultures, the health benefits of bee pollen are still being researched and discovered.
Bee Pollen may be especially beneficial for the extra nutritional and energy needs of athletes and those recovering from illness. It may act as a natural antidote for fighting allergies particularly hay fever and sinusitus. Research shows that pollen counteracts the signs of ageing and increases both mental and physical capabilities.
