Mountain Harvest Pine Pollen Powder
From the Originators of Pine Pollen
Also Available in a 65 Gram Pouch
Our first product. In 2010, RAW Forest Foods was founded with the single intent of providing high quality, high integrity Pine Pollen. At this time there was no domestic source for Pine Pollen, and after observing the healing potential that it held, we had to share it. Over half a decade later, we are pleased to be the premier source for Pine Pollen and proud to offer our customers the complete Mountain Harvest Pine Pollen line of products.
Deep in the remote wilds of the foothills of the Himalaya, our Pine Pollen is harvested by hand from select Pinus massoniana pine trees. Working with a forest conservation co-operative, we use our long-standing relationships to bring our customers only the highest quality Pine Pollen available.
Each spring, as the plants bloom to life, the catkins of the pine trees wake up and blanket the forest floor with high nutrient pollen. More than simply pollinating pine trees, pine pollen provides a source of valuable nutrients and growth hormones to assist the rapid spring growth of the areas sounding the trees and wherever the pollen travels to.
Pine Pollen contains over 200+ identified beneficial compounds, including living nutrients and vitamins, all essential (and many non-essential) amino acids, vital enzymes and co-enzymes, many naturally occurring minerals, and healthful fatty acids. Additionally, Pine Pollen contains the pro-androgenic phytosterols and adaptogenic compounds many are looking for.
In its unprocessed state, Pine Pollen is largely indigestible by humans—the rigid cells walls simply cannot be broken and thus the nutrients are locked inside and pass freely through the digestive tract. Using a low temperature, air fracturing method, our RAW Pine Pollen is processed to crack the cell walls, rendering Pine Pollen more than 99% digestible (as seen in laboratory studies).
As the original forest tonic, Pine Pollen is cherished both for its phytoandrogens (similar to testosterone) and adaptogens as it is for its deep nutritive qualities. The medicinal use of Pine Pollen has a written history dating back approximately 1500 years, and today it has blossomed in popularity for the same reasons people have been using it for nearly a millennium: its positive actions on the endocrine system (and the phytoandrogens it contains), its deeply nutritive properties, and its many other key qualities.* In short, because Pine Pollen is a safe, strong, and effective adaptogenic, tonic herb.*

Out of the products I have tried from Raw Forest Foods, the Pine Pollen is the one my palate really likes. I look forward to the fresh, bright yellow, and pine essence each day. This stuff transports me to the unadulterated forests in far-off Yunnan. I also drink Yunnan puerh tea, so its great to get try pine from the same region. Energetically, I do feel a lift after drinking this. It feels soothing to my digestive tract, not heavy or hard to digest at all. Overall, though it has only been a week of drinking the raw pollen, I feel a lift in my system and find myself craving the pollen, which lets me know my body really appreciates what it has inside.
