Pine Pollen Extract Capsules
From the pristine Mountain Harvest Pine Pollen collection
RAW Forest Foods was the first company offering a powdered Pine Pollen Extract.
Now, we've reinvented it.
These capsules contain unstandardized Pine Pollen Extract. Most powdered extracts are a standardized 5:1 or 10:1concentration. This one—while unstandardized—is closer to a 50 times concentration. That's a 50:1 extract. This is a pure, full spectrum, unstandardized extract. It's a big deal. We're really excited to be able to offer it to you.
Our customers love RAW Pine Pollen because of the many (200+) living nutrients it contains—including vitamins, vital enzymes and co-enzymes, pro-androgenic phyto-sterols, and endocrine regulating adaptogenic compounds. Pine Pollen is also a dense source of protein, containing all vital (and other) amino acids. It also contains many minerals, superoxide dismutase (SOD), methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), and other healthy, important compounds.*
Pine Pollen Benefits
At RAW Forest Foods, we love Pine Pollen as a nutrient dense, functional (super) food, that contains additional adaptogenic, tonic, and phyto-androgenic properties.*
That is to say, we love Pine Pollen because of the deep, restorative nutrition it offers—its nutritive properties. Pine Pollen offers key living vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes and enzymatic co-factors, healthy fats, and many other nutritional compounds. And we love Pine Pollen because of its naturally occurring phyto-androgens (plant compounds that are nearly identical to the male sex hormones, including testosterone) and endocrine system regulating adaptogens.*
But we're not the only ones that love it.
Pine Pollen has a written medicinal use history dating back approximately 1500 years. Today, Pine Pollen is used for many of the same reasons it has been used throughout that history:
- Positive actions on the endocrine system;
- Deeply nutritive;
- Anti-aging properties;
- Anti-fatigue qualities.*
To elevate these, this Pine Pollen Powdered Extract is concentrated roughly 50 times (a 50:1 extract). It begins as Mountain Harvest RAW Pine Pollen and ends as the cleanest, strongest extract available.
Piperine is a compound extracted from black pepper (Piper nigrum). Piperine can help increase the bio-availability of some supplements and nutrients, including Vitamin A, Vitamin B6, Vitamin C, Selenium, CoQ10, and Curcumin.* Increased bio-availability is why Piperine is included here with Pine Pollen. It takes just a small amount of Piperine to gain the benefits of it, with effective dosage in the 5 - 20 milligram range. Piperine has been shown to increase bio-availability of Curcumin (turmeric extract) by 2000%.
With such a small amount of Piperine required, we are able to add it without reducing the overall amount of Pine Pollen in the product. This is a win-win.
FAQ: Is your Royal Pine Pollen Tincture or Extract Capsules Stronger
Technically, our Pine Pollen Powdered Extract, whether this unstandardized extract or our 10:1 extract is much stronger than any tincture available anywhere. It is just not possible to obtain the high concentration with a tincture as it is with a powdered extract. That’s just a reality.
This extract is approximately a 50:1 concentration. It’s made from our pure, RAW Pine Pollen. That means it takes 50 parts of raw material to produce 1 part of extract. By comparison, our tinctures are a 1:2 extract. This is the strongest tincture we find possible when using pure, RAW Pine Pollen as the starting material (which is what should be used). That means it takes 100 times the amount of RAW Pine Pollen to produce 1 part of this powdered extract as it does to produce 1 part of our tincture. That’s a big difference.
Compaired to our previous capsules, these take 5 times the amount of RAW Pine Pollen to produce. They are much more expensive to make, and—as of right now—the price is not reflective of the cost. We just couldn’t raise the price in accordance to the actual cost of the product, since our customers were used to paying what they paid previously for the 10:1 extract. We’ll have to change the pricing to reflect this. But for now, we’re sticking with legacy pricing.

The Extraction Process
This is a powdered extract. It is extracted and prepared using the hot water extraction process. This traditional method of extraction results in a strong concentration without the needed use of harsh solvents. The result is a clinical grade, unstandardized extract. At approximate a 50:1 concentration, this is a full spectrum, pure Pine Pollen Extract. Cleaner and stronger.
