Honey sold in grocery stores has the pollen removed

In preparing your healing plan and your pantry for health through food, remember that you have to use local honey, grown by a beekeeper you know.  The stuff in the grocery stores probably doesn’t have any bee pollen in it!!!!

Testing done for Food Safety News shows that 75% of honey sold on U.S. grocery store shelves has been ultra-filtered, so the bee pollen is removed.

The bee pollen is where the health benefit is.  Without it, you might as well eat sugar.

Why are stores doing that?  I don’t know.  Maybe it’s shelf life.

This website about the benefits of bee pollen lists:

  • Slows down and even reverses the aging process
  • Super boosts the immune system
  • Prevents and inhibits the growth of mutated cells that lead to diseases such as cancer
  • Its plant sterols and essential fatty acids reduces cholesterol, blood pressure, and the risk of heart disease
  • Relieves the symptoms of Type 2 diabetes by restoring mineral and energy deficiencies
  • Fights bacterial infection the way antibiotics do
  • Corrects and balances problems in the digestive tract and colon
  • Supports weight management by increasing the burn rate of fats and calories
  • Alleviates asthma and allergy symptoms by reducing histamines within the body
  • Eliminates cravings for alcohol and drugs — and removes toxins and contamination from the body
  • Relieves and rebuilds damaged, inflamed tissue (muscles and joints) through its extraordinary levels of antioxidants
  • Combats fatigue, depression, and sleep disorders through its natural supply of “neuro-nutrients”
  • Improves libido balance (oversexed/undersexed) and enhances fertility
  • Facilitates cellular generation and repair, thereby shortening the recovery time from exercise and injury
  • Its protein, iron, and vitamin content, which is higher than any other food and most commercially-developed muscle-building products, enhances muscle mass and definition.

Bee pollen reaches the mitochondrion level (where cell energy production and preservation occur), and this gives it the ability to fight disease, heal the body, combat stress, reduce and reverse aging, and improve the skin’s health and elasticity (e.g. less wrinkling and acne), to name a few.
