Boost your vitality and overall health with bee pollen - the so-called "fountain of youth", a rich natural multivitamin. After fermentation in honey, you get a superfood full of vitamins, minerals, beneficial phytonutrients and enzymes.

By regularly consuming bee pollen you will boost your vitality and energy. Bee pollen also contributes to normal fertility and thinking. Due to its high micronutrient content, it benefits the normal function of the immune system.

 

Bee pollen is a rich gift of nature, sometimes referred to as the "fountain of youth." Bee pollen is said to be one of the most complex foods. Thanks to the richness and diversity of many wildflowers, our bee pollen is high quality, tasty and pure. It has been harvested in the most environmentally friendly way from unpolluted natural areas.

It is not for nothing that bee pollen is favoured by those who need to nourish their bodies or support beauty or hormonal health. This includes, for example, athletes or menopausal women.

It is particularly suitable to take:

  • as a great source of nutrients
  • for exhaustion
  • also suitable for stressful times
  • for maintaining normal prostate function
  • to improve fertility


Which benefITS does IT contain?

Bee pollen contains more than 5000 enzymes and thousands of phytonutrients such as co-enzymes, bioflavonoids, phytosterols and carotenoids.

Where does it come from?

Our pollen comes from a small family bee farm in Buda, central Slovakia. The site is located in a picturesque landscape on the banks of the Hron River, near the protected landscape area. Our pollen therefore comes from a clean, unpolluted environment. It is collected and processed in a gentle way using handmade tools with respect for the bees.

Beekeeping has accompanied our suppliers for more than a century. The love of the craft has been handed down from father to son in the fourth generation.

How is IT obtained?

Bees collect pollen grains from flowers on their travels. In one trip from the hive, they can visit more than 1,000 flowers! The golden pollen grains are microscopic in size, but the bees collect millions of them, then moisten them with honey and compress them into small balls.

The newest and highest quality technologies available are used to collect this pollen, with the intention of affecting the bees' lives as little as possible and preserving all the nutritional value and beneficial effects. The collection is carried out using grids placed at the entrance to the hive, through which the bee must pass, leaving 10 to 50 % of the pollen. However, never more than 30 % of the pollen is taken from the bees in this way, otherwise they would become weak.

This bee pollen is first frozen, then carefully dried at a temperature similar to that of a beehive, i.e. below 38 °C, and then cleaned. The pollen is dried slowly to stop the natural fermentation and deterioration of the pollen and to achieve the highest quality, purity and delicious rich taste of the pollen. By sensitive processing and careful storage, the pollen retains the nutritional richness that over-dried hard pollen loses.

Bee pollen and fermentation

The bee pollen we offer here was collected before it was placed in the hive by the bees. Professionally, it is called royal pollen. We recommend fermenting it before consumption.

Fermentation is an enzymatic process that occurs naturally through the action of the pollen grains deposited in the hive. It significantly increases the digestibility of all nutrients.

However, there are several ways to ferment bee pollen:

If we want to ferment in a similar way to the hive, we need to use a hermetically sealed container with sufficient volume. After filling, 20 to 25 % of free space must be left above the pollen, which must be filled with honey and the container closed. The initial temperature should be kept between 28 and 32 °C (this is important to ensure that the process starts quickly and bacterial growth stops), after which it can be reduced to 20 °C.

Another way is to ferment less laboriously in honey. The following procedure has proved successful. Soak the pollen grains in water, but not too much so that the grains do not float in the water. Then add the wet pollen to the honey in a ratio of 1:4 and leave for 14 days. Store in a sealed jar in a dark place. Stir every 3 days during fermentation. The addition of water is important because otherwise the pollen grains will only preserve the honey, but the fermentation will not take place.

Pollen grains that are already fermented naturally in the hive are called honeycomb pollen. If you don't want to ferment it yourself at home, you can try naturally fermented pollen, which you can find here under the name Bee pollen perga.

How to consume pollen

It can be used in cocktails or other drinks, in a variety of dishes, or you can just eat it by the spoonful as a snack. We recommend fermenting the pollen before consumption (see above) - this will increase its absorbability.

Warning:
Some people may experience minor stomach and intestinal irritation and a laxative effect when taking bee pollen. Due to the richness of the nutrients, there is also the possibility of an allergic reaction to bee pollen (approximately 0.5 percent of all people). We therefore recommend an allergy test before use, by applying a small amount of bee pollen with honey to the wrist in the area where the pulse is felt. If a red spot appears after 3-5 hours, then you are most likely allergic to bee products and should not take bee pollen.

Contraindications. Bee pollen should not be taken by people with weakened kidneys and cancer (biologically active substances may promote tumor growth). It is also not suitable for people with pollen allergies.

Keep out of reach of children. Store in a cool, dark and dry place. Do not exceed the recommended daily dose. It is not a substitute for a varied diet. Not intended for children under 3 years of age, pregnant and lactating women.

Kidneys – that´s what matters in the winter

Winter is already in full flow! This is how we perceive it from our western perspective now. But some time ago, we would opt for different words expressing aptly the peace of this season. Night took over, nature is getting quiet and slow, countryside is peaceful and cold; and everything is covered in shades of white and black. It´s the perfect time to contemplate and relax both your mind and body. If you make use of the winter to recover your strengths, in the spring the energy will await you instead of spring fever and you´ll be ready for the more active part of the year.

Miriam Stelariia :) 27. September 2021

Krásný den, koupila jsem si Včelí pyl, kde je zmínka o fermentaci v medu. Jestli tomu dobře rozumím, je třeba pyl naložit do medu a nechat dní a poté užívat dle doporučeného dávkování? Děkuji a krásný den přeji

Ing. Petra Vašková odpověděl:

product specialist, holistic nutrition consultant

Dobrý den, paní Miriam,

ano, dle našich osobních zkušeností postačí menší poměr 1:4 - tzn. 1 lžíce pylu:4 lžíce medu. Uchovávejte v uzavřené sklenici, bez přístupu světla, promíchejte jednou za tři dny a cca za dva týdny máte pyl nafermentovaný.

V případě dalších dotazů jsem pro Vás k dispozici na 732 690 885 nebo petra.v@vitalvibe.cz.
Přeji krásný den,
s pozdravem,
Petra

Marie 11. August 2021

Dobrý den, ráda bych se zeptala na pár upřesňujících informací o fermentaci včelího pylu. Poměr 1:10 je jeden díl namočeného medu na 10 dílů medu? A sklenice je zavřená víčkem nebo něčím prodyšným (ubrouskem, kapesníčkem)? Fermentuje se celých 14 dní při pokojové teplotě? Moc děkuji! Marie

Ing. Petra Vašková odpověděl:

product specialist, holistic nutrition consultant

Dobrý den, paní Marie,

stačí i menší poměr - například mezi námi zaměstnanci nám funguje již poměr 1:4 - 1 lžíce pylu:4 lžíce medu. Dejte jej do plně uzavřené sklenice, uchovávejte např. ve skříňce (bez světla) a promíchávejte jednou za tři dny. Zhruba za 14 dní je pyl nafermentovaný :-)

V případě dalších dotazů jsem pro Vás k dispozici na 732 690 885 nebo petra.v@vitalvibe.cz.
Přeji krásný den,
s pozdravem,
Petra

Klara 5. April 2020

Dobry den, na baleni vaseho vceliho pylu se pise, ze 'pred konzumaci je treba pyl fermentovat 14 dni v medu.' Muzete mi k tomu prosim rict vic, jak mam fementovat (jaky pomer voda/med) a take zda-li je to nutne? Neni tedy radno konzumovat tak jak to je v sacku? Dekuji predem za odpoved a preji pevne nervy a zdravi v teto nelehke dobe. S pozdravem Klara

Ing. Petra Vašková odpověděl:

product specialist, holistic nutrition consultant

Dobry den, Kláry,

fermentace není nezbytně nutná, takže včelí pyl klidně konzumujte jen tak :-) Během procesu fermentace se však zvyšuje stravitelnost všech živin, roste využitelný obsah určitých vitaminů, proto ji doporučujeme. Návod na fermentaci naleznete přímo na našich stránkách :https://www.vitalvibe.eu/cs/super-potraviny/41-vceli-pyl-bio.html?search_query_product=v%C4%8Del%C3%AD

Přeji Vám také hodně zdraví,
s pozdravem,

Petra (petra.v@vitalvibe.cz)

Lenka Housová 25. March 2020

Jak na fermentaci? V magazínu jsem nenašla postup. Děkuji za odpověď.

Ing. Petra Vašková odpověděl:

product specialist, holistic nutrition consultant

Dobrý den, paní Housová,

fermentace je popsána přímo v detailu produktu, nicméně pro jistotu napíšu.

Je potřeba použít hermeticky uzavíratelnou nádobu s dostatečným objemem. Po naplnění musí nad pylem zůstat 20 až 25 % volného prostoru, který doplníme medem a nádobu uzavřeme. Počáteční teplotu je třeba udržovat mezi 28 až 32°C (to je důležité kvůli rychlému nastartování procesů a zastavení růstu bakterií), poté ji lze snížit na 20°C.

Další ze způsobů je méně náročné fermentování v medu. Osvědčil se postup následující. Pylová zrna namočit do vody, ale ne moc, aby zrna ve vodě neplavala. Poté přidat mokrý pyl do medu v poměru 1:10 a nechat 14 dní odležet. V průběhu fermentace třikrát promíchat. Přidání vody je důležité, protože jinak se pylová zrna jen zakonzervují do medu, ale neproběhne fermentace.

Přeji pěkný den,
s pozdravem,

Petra (petra.v@vitalvibe.cz)

Libor Slanina 9. June 2015

Dobrý den,jaká je vstřebatelnost/využitelnost/včelího pylu lidským organismem?Není třeba před konzumací nějakého procesu,který umožní tělu plně využít látky obsažené ve včelím pylu?
Děkuji.
Slanina

Michaela Ptáčková odpověděl:

Krásný den, pane Slanino, včelí pyl je nejlépe vstřebatelný, pokud ho přidáte do kvalitního (tepelně neupraveného) medu v poměru 1:10 a necháte zavřené fermentovat 1-2 týdny, sklenici párkrát převrátíme, aby se pyl s medem dobře promíchal.
