What is Pollen?
Pollen is a powdery substance consisting of numerous fine grains, which contain the male sperm cells. Pollen contains many vitamins, minerals, trace elements, essential amino- and fatty acids, enzyme and phytochemicals (so-called secondary metabolites)—such as flavonoids. Polyphenols are also an important constituent element of flower pollen.
Pollen, Pollen Case and allergies
The pollen content is surrounded by a protective hard coat, consisting of specially shaped proteins. These proteins can cause allergies in the body. The pollen shell itself can often not be opened and digested by the body.
In Pollen Vida, we’ve managed to break these outer walls in a special processing method and are able to uncover the pollen so that the valuable substances of pollen can be absorbed much more easily by the body. Furthermore, due to the absence of allergy triggers, the risk of allergy to pollen is considerably reduced. For the sake of completeness, however, it should be mentioned that Pollen Vida may contain traces of allergenic substances.
The pollen in Pollen Vida is harvested with large vacuum cleaners. So you have the guarantee that only the desired species are included.
From conventional pollen products, only small amounts of the ingredients can be absorbed in the intestine by the body. Most of the substances, however, will be excreted unchanged, due to the protecting, resistant and tough outer walls of the pollen grains. In Pollen Vida, due to the opening of the outer walls of the pollen, a hundred-percent absorption of all the active substances from the flower pollen is ensured. Reckoned in relation to the bio-availability, the pollen in Pollen Vida is cheaper than in other products. This highly concentrated formula provides not only price advantages, but also enables an easier dosage and application.
Where does the pollen used in Pollen Vida come from?
All of the pollen we use come from Sweden. We buy the pollen as raw material, after its safety and purity are confirmed, we process and encapsulate it in Switzerland.
