Victoria Beckham uses Bee Pollen to keep her skin young and prevent wrinkles... speaking about her love of Bee Pollen in an interview with Vogue Magazine, she said 'Twenty-two amino acids, 12 vitamins, 28 minerals... we don't want wrinkles!'
Our Bee Pollen comes from the unspoilt mountainous regions of Spain, where the bees are free to collect pollen from a variety of wildflowers including Cistucs, Rubus and Chestnut.
This combined with natural, organic bee-keeping methods, ensures the health of the bees without harming or disturbing them from their natural routine. It also ensures the purity and sweet taste of their pollen.
Greens Organic Fact: Chelsea girl Millie Mackintosh enjoys her morning green smoothie with a sprinkling of Bee Pollen so much, that she posted a photo of it on instagram!

Health & Beauty from within... Our Organic Spanish Bee Pollen is rich in many vitamins and minerals that are important for your health and wellbeing. For example:
Skin, Hair & Nails... The vitamins and minerals in Bee Pollen including vitamins B1, B2, B3 and Zinc, contribute to the maintenance of normal skin. Zinc also contributes to the maintenance of normal hair and nails.
Reduction of tiredness... Vitamins B2, B3, and Iron, contribute to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue, and to normal energy-yielding metabolism. Iron also contributes to normal oxygen transport in the body.
Sexual Health... Zinc contributes to normal fertility and reproduction.
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.
