Pine Pollen has been used as a superfood and medicine for over 2000 years. It is a popular superfood supplement in Korea and China due to it’s very unique dense nutrient profile. The pollen or male spore is a fine yellow powder that is released in the spring to pollinate female pine cones on the forest floor. This is the yearly rebirth of the forest ecosystem in the spring. As such pine pollen is food for the entire forest and integral reproduction and growth energy to that ecosystem. When made into a potent tincture it becomes a powerful nutraceutical medicine with a potent mix of beneficial properties mostly focused on age related and hormonal health issues in men. The pollen itself is a fine yellow powder full of phytoandrogens, [plant steroids] as well as multiple phyto-chemicals that act as precursors to testosterone production including DHEA and other compounds. When supplemented provides an effective boost for multiple anti aging benefits. In the west it is mostly known for its phytoandrogen properties. It can increase testosterone levels rapidly resulting in increased athletic endurance, performance, muscles mass, libido, vitality and longevity. When taken as a tincture and absorbed slowly under the tongue the testosterone boost is noticeable and rapid. It contains anti-aging properties boosting the enzyme superoxide dismutase levels [SOD} which is a potent antioxidant for the heart, liver and brain, not to mention all living cells. Pine Pollen is also rich in many kinds of body-demanding amino acids, minerals, vitamins, enzymes, and flavonoids essential to life and natural energy production. In combination with other adaptogens or on its own as a varietal tincture it is an effective medicine for attenuating multiple age related diseases, combined with performance enhancement characteristics. In fact the TCM use pine pollen to balance out all five meridians of the body.
