By taking regular doses of bee pollen, vitamin C deficiency will no longer be a problem. It is common knowledge that vitamin C or ascorbic acid is needed by the body to function properly, but why go through the trouble of using bee pollen supplements? Isn’t it just as effective to get it from other sources, like ascorbic acid tablets?
It’s true that most vitamin C tablets do have more vitamin C content than a typical bee pollen supplement but the question is how much of the vitamin is really absorbed by your body when you take it in tablet form?
Studies show that on the average, tablet supplements take longer for the body to digest and have lower absorption rates than supplements that come in encapsulated powder form.
Therefore if you take a vitamin C tablet and less than half of the content is absorbed and used by your body, you will actually be a lot better off using a bee pollen capsule that may have lower vitamin C content but an almost 100% absorption rate.
Furthermore, if you use bee pollen, vitamin C is not the only vitamin your body will receive. You will also enjoy significant amounts of vitamins A, B, D, E and K, as well as several minerals including zinc, calcium, iron, potassium and manganese, all of which will contribute greatly to the improvement of your overall health.
If you make sure that you take your daily dose of bee pollen, vitamin C deficiency will definitely not happen. On the contrary, you will find yourself with an improved immune system, lower susceptibility to the common cold, healthier blood pressure and reduced stress levels.
In order to enjoy these benefits, however, you first need to find yourself a good bee pollen product. Choose one that is harvested from a clean source and manufactured using strict hygienic and non-chemical methods.
The best bee pollen products today are those that hail from New Zealand, one of the few remaining places on earth that is untainted by modern industries and man-made pollution. In particular, the Xtend-life’s Natural Energy brand harvested from the South Island is preferred by many nutrition experts because of its purity and high potency.
Natural Energy is also very popular because it is so convenient to use; unlike other products that you have to mix in with your food, like those that come in granule or loose powder form, it comes in encapsulated powder form.
