What is pollen?
The pollen is collected by the bees in the flowers, and it is without a doubt, one of the most natural, fiber-rich foods we have nowadays.
It is traditionally known as a true functional regulator.
The pollen is a very fine matter stored by the plant in what is called “Lodges Anteras”. This is an asset of the hive, essential to the bees. In fact, it is considered the “bread of bees” and their main food before honey.
