Ingredients: ground flax seeds, marigold flower *, bee pollen. * Product of organic farming
The health benefits of flax seeds are mainly attributed to the omega-3 fatty acids and fiber they contain. Ground flax contains a plant-based omega-3 fatty acid called alpha-linolenic acid or ALA, which has been linked to improved circulation and anti-inflammatory effects. Linen is also a source of ligans.
Lignans are plant compounds with antioxidant and estrogenic properties that can help reduce cancer risk and improve overall health. Flax seeds contain up to 800 times more lignans than other plant foods. Research shows that people who consume flaxseed have a reduced risk of breast cancer, especially in postmenopausal women.
Just one tablespoon of flaxseed contains 3 grams of fiber, which is 8-12% of the recommended daily intake for men and women, respectively. Moreover, flax seed contains two types of dietary fiber - soluble (20 - 40%) and insoluble (60 - 80%). This fiber duo is fermented by the bacteria in the large intestine and causes more regular bowel movements.
Bee pollen comes from an apiary in the buffer zone of the Białowieża Primeval Forest.
Apart from honey and propolis, flower pollen (pollen deposits) is the most nutritious beekeeping product. It contains 14% of organic acids, including linoleic and arachidonic acids, 30% of sugars, lipids and vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B6, B12, C, PP, E, D, K, H, nicotinic acid. The presence of the bioelements is clearly visible: phosphorus, sulfur, chlorine, potassium, calcium, sodium, iron, copper, zinc, selenium, chromium and magnesium. It was also found to decrease the concentration of malondialdehyde in the serum of the tested animals (a compound formed as a result of lipid oxidation) and an increase in the content of hormones responsible for the intensification of fat metabolism. Depending on its origin, pollen may exhibit multidirectional bacteriostatic activity. Pollen from Robinia pseudoacaccia, Trifolium repens and pollen is active against blue oil Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Escherichia coli. In states of malnutrition, convalescence and psychophysical fatigue, pollen is a valuable nutrient. In cases of delayed mental development, it improves intellectual abilities. It shows hepatoprotective and immunostimulating effects.
and ulcerative mucosa of the oral cavity and in herpes of the lips, a treatment lasting at least a month is initiated. It starts with doses of a few grams, gradually increasing them to 30-35 g per day. If the treatment lasts longer than a month, the dose of 20 g per day should not be exceeded. In the case of combination therapy with other apiculture products, the doses should also be reduced, followed by a break of 2-3 months. During intensive treatment, the pollen should be diluted with milk and administered in single doses of 20-30 g.
Particularly good results are obtained in patients with peptic ulcer disease complicated by hemorrhages. After administration of pollen preparations, a gradual disappearance of hemorrhages and an improvement in well-being was observed.
The hypolipemic effect of pollen is due to the presence of unsaturated fatty acids (EFA) in it. Under their influence, readily soluble adducts with cholesterol are formed, which leads to lowering blood cholesterol levels. Pollen contains phospholipids and phytosterols, which are cholesterol antagonists, as well as flavonoids and phenolic acids, which also have antiatherosclerotic effects.
The prostate gland
Fat-soluble pollen extracts are highly effective in the treatment of non-bacterial prostatitis associated with its hypertrophy. In cases of bacterial infection, the combination of pollen preparations with antibiotics and physical therapy has a beneficial effect.
The administration of antidepressants is associated with various side effects. The most important of these is the gradual build-up of addiction. Parallel use of pollen makes it possible to lower the doses of antidepressants and obtain improvement in a shorter time, which protects against addiction. Pollen preparations nourish and tone the nervous tissue. They also improve its blood supply. Hence, a positive effect on the results of treatment of depression caused by a decrease in vital energy, especially in the elderly. In the case of alcoholism, pollen administered in small doses, along with sedatives, shortens the duration of symptoms and weakens their strength.
Pollen is an important adjunct to iron deficiency anemia, especially in children, and secondary rheumatic anemia.
