Pollen is the male seed of flowers, consisting of micro-gametophytes (pollen grains). The pollen grain with its hard coat protects the sperm cells during the process of their movement between the stamens of the flower to the pistil of the next flower. Each pollen grain contains vegetative cells (only one in most flowering plants but several in other seed plants), a generative cell containing a tube nucleus (that produces the pollen tube), and a generative nucleus (that divides to form the two sperm cells). The group of cells is surrounded by a cellulose cell wall and a thick, tough outer wall made of sporopollenin.
Pollen is required for the fertilization of the plant. The tiny particles consist of corpuscles, formed at the free end of the stamen in the heart of the blossom. Every variety of flower in the universe puts forth a dusting of pollen. Many orchard fruits and agricultural food crops do, too. The transfer of pollen grains to the female reproductive structure is called pollination. This transfer can be mediated by the wind, or by bees, birds, insects etc.
Bee pollen is flower pollen that is collected by bees when they land on the flower to collect nectar. Pollen granules stick to the bees' legs and other body parts as they help themselves to nectar (the precursor of honey) inside the flowers. Bee pollen is the food of the young bee.
Bee Pollen is one of nature's unique and most powerful foods. It has been estimated that honeybee pollen contains almost all enzymes and coenzymes our bodies need, many times more than any other food. Enzymes in the body are not only necessary for perpetual healing and digestion but for life itself. Without enzymes, life is impossible. Also, enzymes protect against premature aging. It has been reliably stated that only honeybee pollen contains all known enzymes in perfect proportion and perfect balance.
Bee pollen offers a treasure trove of special plant nutrients and a wide range of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and enzymes . Bee Pollen is made up of 5-25% Amino Acids, upto 40% Carbohydrates, 5% Fatty Oils and up to 35% protein and it's why bee pollen is such a valuable supplement to the diet, because it supplies many of the dietary antioxidants, bioflavonoids and polyphenols that we are missing by not eating our recommended amounts of fruits and vegetables.
