Bee Pollen Information
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 all flowering plants and is the genesis of most seed-producing life! Pollen is how these plants distribute their DNA to form seeds, and reproduce. It is the genesis of this plant life because it enables every higher living plant on earth to reproduce. It is a potent storehouse of nutritional compounds.
40% protein, at least 18 amino acids, more than 27 vitamins, 28 minerals, 11 enzymes/co-enzymes, 24 beneficial fatty acids, and 11 carbohydrates
NatureBee ‘Potentiated’ Bee Pollen is 100% bee collected, open cell wall, plant pollen nutrients. No added sugar, no artificial colouring, no preservatives, and no gluten. Never heated, NatureBee is fresh raw power and simply a vegetable food in a capsule. Potent, and highly effective. NatureBee also comes in veggie capsules for those who specifically request it
How can NatureBee compare to supplements developed in a lab and manufactured in a factory?
Isolated vitamin and mineral supplements have synthetic chemical structure that cannot be recognized as ‘food’ and cannot be compared to bee pollen which is a broad spectrum whole raw food.
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 walls using a proprietary process that’s similar to the way you would open a walnut to get to its delicious, healthy contents. The Potentiation process opens and releases the contents of each pollen granule making it more digestible and bio available. No heat is used, so each NatureBee capsule contains raw vegetable food for optimum complementation to your nutrition!
We call it ‘Potentiated Pollen’ because the process makes it even more potent for humans to digest.
What’s the historical background of bee pollen? How is today’s bee pollen different than bee pollen 6000 years ago?
It’s not! Bee pollen was entombed with the Egyptian Pharaohs! Historical accounts have been found in every culture around the world. Importantly, we believe pollen is so important to life that it is referenced in the Bible in Genesis 1:29: “I have given you every seed-bearing plant throughout the earth.”
Native cultures worldwide used bee pollen as part of their daily nutrition, as well as a survival food because of the amazing amount of powerful nutrition available in a small amount of volume. The Maori’s, the indigenous people of New Zealand, pounded bee pollen into cakes that were dried and packed to be used on long journeys and to supplement the diet.
Century after century, bee pollen’s full spectrum nutrition has been revered! Hippocrates, often called the “the father of medicine”, refers to bee pollen, and it has long been known as an original health food that supports long life, good health, a strong immune defence, perceived sexual stamina and vitality, while supporting common general health and wellbeing.
I am training for a half marathon. What is the history of bee pollen use for training and with athletes?
Bee pollen has been used for thousands of years by ancient civilsations as a tonic and healer. The Greeks took pollen to enahance their performance during the first Olympic games. The Aztecs kept pollen in vials around their neck to help increase their stamina. The extensive range of nutrients in bee pollen will help support every cell in your body, and that boost to your health will have an ongoing effect. When you’re healthy, you feel more like exercising. The more you exercise, the better your cardiovascular health will be, and the faster you will recover from vigorous activity.

Why does my product say it’s made in China?
Customers in Australia will see ‘product of China’ on the label; this is due to New Zealand-sourced pollen being short in supply and used to serve the New Zealand market, while the pollen sourced from Northern China is used in our products elsewhere. Our Australian-marketed products contain high quality bee pollen which is sourced predominantly on the Liaodong Peninsula in the northern part of China.
For New Zealand and United States customers, all bee pollen is sourced in New Zealand and the products are manufactured locally.
Regardless of origin, all our pollen meets the high New Zealand food and safety regulatory standards administered by the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI). The imported pollen is tested for heavy metals and pesticides by an independent laboratory to assure quality. The pollen we use from both New Zealand and China contains the same core natural nutrients, providing the same benefits to all consumers.
Why is there a difference in the labelling of where the product is packaged?
Australian customers buying from a third party (e.g. an Australian retailer, either in-store or via that retailer’s website) the products are packaged in Australia using pollen sourced from China. The label will state ‘product of China, packaged in Australia’.
For Australian customers buying directly from NatureBee (e.g. via the NatureBee website), these products are distributed from New Zealand. The label will state ‘product of China, packaged in New Zealand’.
Customers purchasing our products from New Zealand or the United States will receive products directly from NatureBee, and the label will state ‘product of New Zealand’.
