Extended Information: RAW Brassica Pollen
Our RAW Brassica campestris Pollen is an ethically harvested bee pollen from organically grown Brassica flowers. We lightly process our it to crack the cell wall of the pollen, resulting in 99% complete digestibility.
Like all our pollens, our RAW Brassica Pollen is a nutrient dense Jing food, feeding the deep longevity reserves of the body. It contains 18 percent of its weight as protein in the form of full spectrum raw amino acids. Brassica pollen contains many vitamins, minerals, and other phytochemicals and flavonoids in their raw, natural, beneficial state.
Brassica Pollen is highly regarded for its deep nutrition, including a high protein content with 18 RAW and vegan amino acids. RAW Brassica campestris pollen is especially appreciated for promoting prostate health, increasing blood flow, and decreasing inflammation. RAW Brassica campestris pollen is used to:
- Improve and promote prostate health;
- Relieve symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH);
- Promote adipose tissue lipolysis (fat loss);
- Immune system strengthening;
- Improve liver health and detoxification;
- Decrease inflammation.*
RAW Brassica Pollen is used as a tonic to promote prostate health and to help eliminate the symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). It is a strong anti-inflammatory. These two uses make it an important addition for many men, and a staple of our personal protocols at RAW Forest Foods.
Promoting Prostate Health
RAW Brassica Pollen is highly prized for promoting prostate health. The strong effect that Brassica pollen has on the prostate is the main reason that we are so pleased to be able to offer this unique Raw Pollen to our customers. It is used to relieve the symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), including frequent urination and impaired sexual function and response. While partly due to the powerful anti-inflammatory properties of RAW Brassica Pollen, the exact mechanism of how Brassica campestris benefits the prostate is still unknown.
In different modalities of Chinese medicine, RAW Brassica Pollen is considered to be deeply and specifically nutritive to the prostate, promoting general prostate health, thus relieving disease. Furthermore, the Pollen is seen as activating Blood and reversing Blood Stasis (both Chinese medical terms), and as such RAW Brassica Pollen is able to enrich the blood and promote blood flow into and out of the prostate (the connection of lack of blood flow to the prostate and poor prostate health is validated in Western medicine).
Extracts of sterols/steroids in RAW Brassica Pollen have been shown to promote apoptosis (programmed cell death) in several strands of prostate cancer cells (2). Furthermore, over time with treatment, the overall ability for cancer cells to evade normal cell death decreased (2) with its use. Research into the pollen as a treatment for prostate cancer is still ongoing; however, the preliminary findings are mentioned here to illustrate how Western research is discovering the chemical actions found in RAW Brassica Pollen in promoting prostate wellness.
Half of all men age 50 and older experience benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in men after skin cancer. The common prevalence of prostate disorders makes promoting the prostate health of the utmost importance.
Promoting Immune System Health
There is a tendency to think of the immune system as responsible only for protecting the body from outside pathogens (like the common cold or flu), but the immune system is actually a highly complex system in the body with far-reaching effects. The immune system does protect against outside pathogens, but it also protects the body from internal threats like mutated cells, tumors and cancers, and regulating inflammation in the body. Plant and fungi medicines which strengthen and promote (not simply stimulate) the immune system and immune system health have long been cherished in different traditional forms of medicine throughout the world for their longevity promoting benefits.
RAW Brassica Pollen is nutritive to the immune system, meeting the nutrition needs of the immune system through it naturally occurring high content of beta-carotene (the non-toxic form of vitamin A) and naturally occurring (not synthetic) vitamin C. RAW Brassica Pollen helps to maintain a healthy immune system and healthy immune response by supporting the immune system's nutritive needs and decreasing systemic inflammation.
The Effect on Body Fat
A little vanity is permissible. Studies have shown RAW Brassica Pollen to be effective in promoting lipolysis—the release of fatty acids from adipose (fat) cells (3), making it an effective anti-obesity agent. Furthermore, the Pollen has been shown to decreasing the storage of fatty acids in fat tissue, helping to prevent the accumulation of body fat. Adipose tissue (fat) has consequences beyond vanity.
Adipose tissue has the profoundly negative effect of promoting inflammation throughout the body by the production and release of adipocytokines. Adipocytokines are highly pro-inflammatory and metabolic deregulatory compounds. Adipose tissue is also considered by many to be an active part of the endocrine (hormonal) system, contributing estrogenic hormones and promoting estrogen dominance in both men and women.
Liver Health and Detoxification
RAW Brassica Pollen has been shown to promote detoxification in the body by increasing the health of the liver (as shown in its ability to improve skin conditions), by binding to and eliminating carcinogens from the body (3), and by its high living enzyme content and the ability for the Pollen to increase the production of specific detoxification enzymes in the body.
RAW Brassica Pollen also contains a high amount of soluble and insoluble fiber, which promotes detoxification (including estrogen detoxification) by binding to and removing toxins. The high fiber content also increases peristalsis throughout the digestive tract—but specifically the large intestine—which improves transit time of the colon, relieving constipation and the toxicity that constipation causes. The combination of the ability for Brassica to bind to and eliminate carcinogens, for its ability to promote detoxification enzymes in the body and its own living enzyme content, combined with the high levels of soluble and insoluble fiber makes RAW Brassica Pollen a detoxification powerhouse.
The fiber in RAW Brassica Pollen is effective at lowering blood cholesterol levels (VLDL/LDL) by binding to cholesterol in the bile of the small intestine. While cholesterol is a very important molecule in the body, and the backbone of the sex and stress hormones, lowering very low-density and low density lipoproteins (VLDL/LDL) is important in cardiovascular health and preventing cardiovascular disease.
In classical Chinese medicine and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), RAW Brassica Pollen is used to activate Blood treat Blood stasis. In Western medicine, this would improve the above conditions, but in Chinese medicine activating Blood and treating Blood stasis would promote Qi flow and distribution and promote Shen—our vital spirit.

Additionally, this product is for those looking to decrease inflammation in the body, decrease fat stores, improve detoxification, and promote a healthy immune system.
RAW Brassica Pollen is specifically for those seeking to improve prostate health and for those looking to eliminate the symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). For this reason alone, we are pleased to offer this Pollen to our customers.

First of all, Raw Forest is the only source of brassica pollen I've found . So get it here, or don't get it at all. I take it on an empty stomach, upon arising, along with nettle root extract and cistanche extract , whisked into warm water ( and ginger powder, for taste) ; two grams each of everything. Tastes good, to me. And I'm weaning myself gradually off of my Flowmax prostate prescription medicine. So far, so good. I'm confident in the knowledge that Raw Forest products are. " the real deal", and that I' m consuming a quality product.
The brassica pollen is an excellent quality and I believe it has aided in my reversing my PSA by a full point in less than 9 months. However, while I am happy with the quality of products from RAW, their customer service leaves much to be desired. I have sent at least 3 emails with questions regarding products and none of them have been answered.
I am in my mid 40s and have suffered from an undiagnosed enlarged prostate for years. I have to sit all day at work and I attribute the prolonged sitting with my prostate issues. This product has done a good job of minimizing my symptoms such as increased urination and trouble stopping the flow. A solid product that I'll keep ordering from RAW Forest Foods.
This just came out last week and I ordered right away, and I just received it yesterday (quick). I used it twice, once yesterday and once today, and its too early to give a full review, but so far I feel a definite boost (but this could be due to a placebo effect). As a young man with an enlarged prostate, I'm very interested in holistic approaches to prostate health. Didn't have to get up once last night to pee, so that's great. Seems to be extremely high quality (like other RFF products).
