Pine Pollen Powder - Wild Harvested
Cracked Cell Wall
Pine pollen has a slightly sweet flavour and is mild in nature. 1-2 teaspoons or more if desired. Can be added to tea, smoothies, elixirs, juice or water, food or eaten on it's own.
Our pine pollen is wild crafted through sustainable practices and gathered from remote high elevation forests each spring. After wildcrafting, the pollen is processed at low temperature to ensure maximum potency and increased digestibility.
The nutrients of pine pollen are protected by a hard cell wall which results in poor absorption of the nutrition. The hard cell wall is broken to allow for a better absorption rate.
Historically, pine pollen use has been well documented and traditionally used for a variety of conditions, most notably balancing hormones and having an adaptogenic effect on the body. With over 200 bioactive nutrients including 20 amino acids, pine pollen is a powerful superfood and has been consumed as a powerful nutrient source for over 2400 years.
The pollen from all pine trees is edible and abundantly available for a 2-3 week window in the spring. It is extremely rich in phytonutrients including many amino acids and steroidal building blocks that can be used to increase androgens and restore hormone health. Pine pollen is an excellent source of flavonoid groups, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. It is a mild tasting fine powder and can be easily consumed with little processing, making a nice addition to your superfood kitchen.
