The Origin of RAW Forest Foods
The story of RAW Forest Foods begins in the lush landscapes of the Pacific Northwest, woven with threads of healing, innovation, and the power of nature.
In the spring of 2010, Ryan started RAW Forest Foods as a blog to detail his journey of healing and discovery while recovering from Lyme Disease using wild-harvested Pine Pollen. As Ryan shared his experiences on RAW Forest Foods, interest grew in the powders and tinctures he made for use in his own recovery. Soon, readers began reaching out, asking to purchase those powders and tinctures. Recognizing the need to share his knowledge on a larger scale, RAW Forest Foods grew from a blog into a company.
In the fall of 2010, RAW Forest Foods became the first company to offer RAW Pine Pollen™ and Pine Pollen Tinctures, introducing the world to the potential healing benefits of Pine Pollen. As RAW Forest Foods has continued to develop and expand its product range, they have remained committed to their core mission of providing high-integrity, plant-based herbal therapies to people worldwide.
As our journey continues, we remain committed to the principles that have guided us: quality, expertise, and a deep commitment to our customers and the plants that support their wellbeing.

Product Philosophy and Formulation
When formulating our products, we aim to support and promote long-term, sustainable health and wellness for our customers. In today's culture, where productivity is often prioritized over well-being, many are overworked, stressed, and exhausted. However, relying on stimulating herbs to mask these symptoms is not a sustainable solution.
We specialize in harnessing the power of nature to serve your unique health and wellness needs. Our carefully curated collection includes adaptogenic, phyto-androgenic, pro-androgenic, and tonic herbs and formulas inspired by Ayurveda and Classical Chinese Medicine principles. Each product we develop and offer reflects our deep interest in botany, contemporary scientific research, ethnobotany, and traditional medicine.
Our approach is to first support the body by providing the necessary resources for rebuilding foundational wellness (typically through the use of deeply nourishing herbs), then addressing underlying conditions (such as Dampness and Heat, and in some cases, the accumulation of estrogenic hormones and other endocrine system disruptors), and finally, revealing inner, innate vitality through the careful use of adaptogenic, phyto-androgenic, pro-androgenic, and tonic herbs.
All our products are made in the United States in certified organic, FDA cGMP, and NSF-certified facilities. We work directly with producers and wild harvesters whenever possible to ensure the highest-quality ingredients and have traveled worldwide to verify the site and processing of our Mountain Harvest Pine Pollen.

Forest Manna RAW Pine Pollen™ Powder
Excelent: It does what it's supposed to do. Out of a few brands this has the best flavor. I notice a difference when using this product. I would recommend to give it a try.
Mountain Alchemy Pine Pollen Elixir Tincture
Feeling Great: Just started using this a week ago, and I'm already feeling the vitality benefits. Definitely going to keep ordering. Thanks for making such a great product.
Forest Manna RAW Pine Pollen™ Powder
Golden Gem: I started making a Pine Pollen tea every morning first thing with hot water, a spot of honey, and oat milk. Besides the delicious addition to my morning, I noticed my body trimmed up without changing my diet or exercise routine within a few weeks, which took me by surprise. I also noticed a subtle uplift in energy. Planning on taking this longterm and would recommend it to anyone.
Wild Siberian Chaga Extract Powder
This product is fantastic and I will be buying a lot more!
Forest Manna Royal Pine Pollen Tincture
I've used this as a precursor to my morning exercise and stretching routine with great success. Sometimes I would combine this with a small amount of warm water along with the cistanche to help me balance the pine pollen tincture.
