Although many people think pine pollen is exclusively for men, the remarkable superfood is actually beneficial for everyone. It has an astounding nutrient profile almost unlike anything else in the world and with it comes a wealth of health and wellness benefits which everyone can take advantage of. Plus, since it’s available in RAW pine pollen powder, tablet, capsule and tincture forms, it’s easy for anyone to incorporate into their lifestyle.
If you’re intrigued and you’re wondering how the nutrient powerhouse can benefit you, here are ten reasons why RAW pine pollen is safe and healthy for everyone.
1. Highly nutritious
RAW pine pollen contains 200+ beneficial compounds, including vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes, coenzymes and fatty acids. These nutrients are vital for everyone to develop and maintain a healthy body and mind.
2. Excellent source of plant-based protein
Pine pollen contains 7-10 times the protein of beef or eggs, making it an exceptional source of plant-based protein. Not only that, but it also has 20 times more iron content than spinach and it’s 20-30 times higher in beta-carotene than carrots. This means just a little RAW pine pollen powder goes a very long way.
3. Balances testosterone
One of pine pollen’s most powerful abilities is to balance testosterone. Having low levels of testosterone is the cause of all kinds of medical conditions, from diabetes and a slow metabolism to obesity and heart disease.
4. Improves skin’s appearance
Pine pollen contains a sulphuric compound known as methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) which has been proven to enhance skin’s elasticity and appearance. This is enhanced by androgens which are also known for their ability to increase elastin and collagen production, smoothing and tightening the skin.
5. Boosts immunity
All our pine pollen products, from our RAW pine pollen powder to our RAW pine pollen tincture, contain superoxide dismutase. This is an important antioxidant which stops and repairs the damage done to our DNA by various diseases and health conditions, enhancing the immune system and helping us combat sickness in the future.
6. Slows down the aging process
Pine pollen is an incredible source of antioxidants and anti-inflammatories, which give it amazing anti-aging properties. These two aspects work together to stop free radicals from doing excess damage and combat degenerative diseases associated with aging caused by inflammation.
7. Improves muscle recovery
The anti-inflammatories in our RAW pine pollen powder and other RAW pine pollen products also help the body repair itself better. This is especially useful for people who exercise regularly and suffer from post-workout inflammation. But it also helps the general wear and tear of muscles we all experience on a daily basis and encourages the body to heal itself quickly and efficiently.
8. We know where our Pine Pollen comes from
We source the pollen for our RAW pine pollen powder, capsules, tablets and tincture deep in the foothills of the Himalayan mountains. We’ve visited the forests ourselves and we’ve personally met the harvesters who collect it. This means we can fully confirm the safety and quality of every ounce of pine pollen which goes into our products.
9. Packaged in a certified organic, FDA cGMP facility
Maintaining the high integrity and quality of our products is hugely important to us. This is why we package everything domestically in our certified organic, FDA cGMP facility. We don’t use any kind of filler and lightly process our pine pollen to provide an easily-digestible powder 50 times stronger than standard pine pollen.
10. Protective food-grade packaging
All our RAW Forest Foods products are contained within special packaging to protect the ingredients and keep them as fresh as possible for as long as possible. Our RAW pine pollen powder comes in opaque packaging with an additional protective layer inside to defend against UV rays and water. Our RAW pine pollen tinctures, capsules and tablets come inside an opaque glass bottle for the same reason.
