Pine Pollen Health Benefits & Research

Pine pollen is nature's superfood gone wild on steroids!  

Much of the excitement regarding the benefits of pine pollen exist because of phytoandrogens. Pine pollen contains natural phytoandrogens; a functional source of plant based molecules that offer an alternate to synthetic or prescription hormone. Like phytoestrogens, these phytoandrogens play equal role in both aging men and women.

Brassinosteroids are found throughout the plant kingdom: in new growths, germinating seeds, and young vegetative tissues. Superfoods like wheat-grass juice, germinated broccoli seed, and certain sprouts have these nourishing plant hormones: they help detoxify and have anabolic impact on cell growth. 


Rapid Growth During Germination 


                Pine pollen Powder                         


A partial list of pine pollen's other bioactive nutrients, antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory molecules includes:

The pollen grain carries everything it needs for germination. 15% amino acids,  1-2% lipids-sterols, various polyphenols and antioxidants, including 2% flavonoids,  myoinositol, phosphatidylcholine, phosphatidylethanolamine, phosphatidylglycerol,  phosphatidylserine, lignin, and various polysaccharides (complex sugars)—two of which are vital to immune health; arabinogalactan, and xylogalacturonan and on top of that boasts liver detoxifying agents like glutathione, MSM, SOD. 

It also has vitamin D2/D3, magnesium, selenium, silicon, potassium, calcium, iron, strontium, phosphorus, sulphur, chlorine, manganese, and various other vitamins, minerals, and essential amino acids such as L-dopa and Arginine that help with blood flow and the nitric-oxide cycle.

Pine pollen health benefits come from a huge number of bioactive molecules needed for germination. 

Pine pollen also has five other potent plant hormone compounds, required for germanaiton burst:Auxins, Cytokinins, Gibberellins, Ethylene, Abscisic acid- all with biological activity, such as; antiviral, anti-cancer, anabolic, pro-survival, stem cell/immune response activation, and anti-aging effects.
