I'm so excited about pine pollen! After many hours of studying this perfectly designed, naturally-charged super-food, I can say that my fascination and appreciation has grown too. Just as much as much my energy :)
It turns out; other than anti-ageing, anti-inflammatory, and hormone regulating effects, the whole cell pine pollen is perfectly shaped to act as a sorbent; an attractor of charged organic pollutants.

Artificially magnetised pollen grains are the subject of large-scale research for cleaning chemical wastes.
Pollen enhanced with magnetic iron particles draws in pesticides (HOCs), polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) from contaminated waters. Imagine what it might do for you!
