1. I see a lot about ‘whole food’ supplements. How does NatureBee compare to these new type of supplements and how do they compare to other supplements? How can bee pollen offer so many vitamins, minerals and enzymes? It seems overstated.
Bee pollen is a ‘whole food’ supplement. Unlike other supplements marketed as whole food, the fact is that bees instinctively search for the best pollen available. It is nature’s perfect food because each teaspoon of bee pollen contains over 2.5 million grains of life-giving plant pollen. Plant pollen comes from the male stamen of flowers and is the genesis of all plant life! Pollen is how plants pollinate to form seeds, and reproduce.. It is the genesis of all plant life because it enables every higher living plant on earth to reproduce. It is a potent source of nutrition.
2. How can NatureBee compare to supplements developed in a lab and manufactured in a factory?

3. NatureBee has coined the term “Potentiated Pollen”. How do you make bee pollen more potent? Do use heat during the process?
We take fresh, multi-floral, wild, raw, 100% bee pollen and break open its hard cell wall using a proprietary process similar to the way you would open a walnut to get to its delicious, healthy contents. Our leading-edge science opens and releases the contents of each granule making it more digestible and bio available. No heat is used, so each NatureBee capsule contains raw vegetable food for optimum nutrition!
We call it ‘Potentiated Pollen’ because the process makes it even more potent for humans to ingest.
