Honey bees collect pollens from the flowers they visit and bring it back to their hives. Bees enrich the collected pollens with their digestive enzymes, hormones or ferments and deposit them inside their honeycombs in the form of small balls. Bee pollen or bee bread is a rich source of protein and other nutrients required for optimal health. It is a natural antioxidant and an immune system builder that enhances vitality. It also serves as protein-rich food for bees which is bought by beekeepers to feed their bees during a shortage of natural pollen.
