What is Pine Pollen and what is Nettle Root?

Pine Pollen

Pine Pollen refers to the male fertilizing component that’s produced by pine trees. At RAW Forest Foods, we harvest our Pine Pollen from carefully selected Pinus massoniana trees, also known as Chinese red pines.

Pine Pollen is a uniquely potent and natural substance containing high levels of nutrients, specific anti-aging compounds, bio-available androgen hormones, raw amino acids, vitamins, minerals and dense antioxidants. Such a diverse and comprehensive assortment of nutrients makes it the most complete of all superfoods.*

The powerful combination of pro-androgenic compounds found within Pine Pollen is unseen anywhere else in the plant world.* All of these compounds work in unison to provide a profound benefit for a healthy and long life.*

Nettle Root

Nettle Root is made from the roots of the common Stinging Nettle Plant (Urtica dioica) which is found throughout New England. This herb is also known as “The Male Herbal Ally” because of its many significant benefits. These include supporting prostate health, lowering estradiol (a metabolite of estrogen) and increasing free (biologically active) testosterone. 

Where is your Pine Pollen Harvested?

We offer only Mountain Harvest Pine Pollen. This is single source Pine Pollen harvested by hand, each spring, by a dedicated cooperative of villagers. Having worked with the harvesters, spending time in the forests that produce our Pine Pollen, we can guarantee that you will not find a cleaner source.

Located close to the Thousand Island Lake, the forest is government and the entire region is held in high regard for it's pristine environment. It is far, far from industry.

Our Våren Forest Nettle Root is certified organic and is cultivated with care and attention. 

What makes the Pine Pollen and Nettle Root combination so special?

Individually, Pine Pollen and Nettle Root are incredibly powerful herbs which contain a world of health and wellness benefits. But combine them and you get an even more potent natural remedy, as each herb increases the other’s effects.

Pine Pollen is primarily used for its positive results on the endocrine system (including the phytoandrogens contained within), its intensely nutritive properties and its many other key components* which make it so important and beneficial to everyone who takes it. Essentially, people love Pine Pollen because it’s an effective, strong and safe adaptogenic tonic herb.*

When coupled together, Pine Pollen supplements the body with phytoandrogens, while Nettle Root encourages healthy testosterone-estrogen ratios which could boost levels of free active testosterone by decreasing the activities of SHBG (the sex hormone binding globulin).
