Flatter Tummies & Weight Loss... Bee Pollen can help as part of your diet plan, because it's high in fibre. High fibre foods help you to feel fuller for longer, so you're less inclined to over-eat.
According to the NHS website, "Fibre has many health benefits. It can help prevent heart disease, diabetes, weight gain, some cancers, and improve digestive health".
However, many of us don't get enough fibre. The UK average is just 14g a day, and you should aim for at least 18g a day. Bee Pollen contributes to your recommended daily fibre intake, and 15g of Bee Pollen will provide about 2.4g of fibre.
Digestive Health... Zinc contributes to normal carbohydrate metabolism, acid-base metabolism, macronutrient metabolism, and to normal metabolism of fatty acids. Zinc also contributes to normal protein synthesis.
Physical Health... For your physical health vitamin B2 contributes to the maintenance of normal red blood cells, and Iron contributes to normal formation of red blood cells and haemoglobin. Iron and Zinc contribute to the normal function of the immune system. Naturally occurring Antioxidants in Bee Pollen, include vitamin B2 and E, which contribute to the protection of cells from oxidative stress.
