Bee Pollen Effect


Ilog Maria Bee Pollen

Ilog Maria Bee Pollen

In a recent trip to the cold high lands of Tagaytay, Cavite, Philippines, my family and I discovered Ilog Maria. It is a clean, pure and primordial honeybee farm located in Silang town just minutes away from Tagaytay.

Joel and Violaine Magsaysay own and manage the bee farm and they have been harvesting honey, beeswax, pollen, propolis, royal jelly, bee venom from their own honeybees for 30 years now. Some of their products include hair oil, bath salts, candles, insect repellants, aromatherapy oils, lotions, lip balm, virgin honey and fresh bee pollen, among others. All the products contain one or more of the active ingredients harvested from their own farm bees. Each harvest process is done painstakingly to preserve the freshness and potency of their product.

My husband and I purchased a large bottle of fresh Ilog Maria Bee Pollen because we were quite amazed of what was written on the piece of literature about the benefits of bee pollen. I have tried bee pollen in capsule form before but I haven’t seen it in its full freshness before.

It said in the literature“Do not overdose. Overdose leads to exceedingly high energy levels, increased metabolism, higher body temperature, and excessive hilarity and euphoria. Fortunately, an overdose can be worked off with brisk exercise…” 

It’s just one of the best overdose side effects I’ve ever known. No harm! So when we got home, we tried it. It only took just a small teaspoonful (smaller than an ordinary teaspoon) of fresh bee pollen to experience the surge of energy and the gush of cheerfulness.  Sleeping experience has also been great for us. Taking bee pollen in the morning allows us a good night’s rest. Taking it in the afternoon will keep us awake the whole night.

That is just a part of it. There are other advantages, too. Years of scientific studies and research from various countries have proven that bee pollen grains have alleviated, lessened and cured many health problems and maintained wellness. Ingesting bee pollen regularly may have the following benefits to the body:

  • { Heightens endurance of athletes
  • { Improves memory of students and concentration of workers
  • { Furnishes necessary elements for the repair of any damaged cells or tissues
  • { Metabolizes fat and helps maintain ideal weight
  • { Alleviates impotence and helps prevent prostate enlargement
  • { Fights depression, stress and fatigue
  • { Remedies digestive problems
  • { Builds up the immune system
  • { Lessens the risk of hypertension
  • { Hinders growth of tumors
  • { Enhances sexual drive and improves fertility

  • { Provides anti-aging elements

No wonder bee pollen grains have so much medicinal properties for humans; it is nature’s most complete food because it contains all the nutrients needed by the body such as:

  • 18 vitamins – Carotene, Thiamine, Riboflavin, Niacin, Pantothenic Acid, Pyridoxine, Folic Acid,  Cyanocobalamin, Ascorbic Acid, Vit D, Alpha Tocopherol, Biotin, Vit K, Chlorine, Inositol, Vit M, Rutin and Nicotinomide
