I found a free PDF version of this book HERE.

Next up Bee Products– Bee products consist of raw honey, Bee Pollen, royal jelly and propolis. I’ll be breaking this up individually. FIRST UP – BEE POLLEN

I eat about one tablespoon of bee pollen every morning. I have a lemon water smoothie I drink each day, in which I add Manuka honey and bee pollen. Why? Well just have a look at some of the benefits:

  1. Provides nearly all nutrients humans need to live.
    • It’s considered a complete protein!- more than any animal source
    • High in anti-oxidants
    • Contains all essential vitamins except vitamin B12
    • Contains many trace minerals required for human health
    • High in enzymes
  2. Reduces wrinkles
  3. Healthy skin
  4. Relieves menopausal symptoms
  5. Improves endurance
  6. Healthy digestion
  7. Protects the liver from toxins
  8. Helps with weight loss
  9. Relieves stress
  10. Reduces fatigue

These are just 10 of the benefits. There are a few more, with other details in the video below:

 

 

About Tamara Hoerner (1161 Articles)
Welcome to The Purple Almond! My name is Tamara Hoerner. I am a student at Hawthorn University working toward a Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes “Good, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.
