Pine pollen is a foundational superfood for over 2000 years, contains Phyto androgens which balance out testosterone.
Pine Pollen has been on earth for as long as humans. We have cohabitated pine forest ecosystems all over the world and evolved a sense of harmony with the mighty pine trees. While we are all aware of the sap, wood, and needles our understanding of the nutritional potential of Pine Pollen in North America is limited but growing rapidly. It is naturally abundant in phytonutrients. The harvest occurs in the spring for about a week. The pine pollen is released from the trees first in the valley bottom and slowly moves to higher altitudes as the harvest weeks continue. It is pure nutritional gold and so abundant, but only for a short period of time. Despite the abundance of pine pollen the actual harvest is labor intensive and messy. However, the result is a pure fine yellow powder loaded with nutrient value. It is best delivered to you in a tincture format. Through an extraction process you receive highly potent phytonutrients with almost immediate bioavailability.
Pine Pollen is considered the “ premier phytoandrogen on the planet and long before now should have been recognized as the powerful medicine that it is” says Daniel Vitalis in the foreword to the book “Pine Pollen: Ancient Medicine for a New Millennium” by Stephan Buhner. A phytoandrogen is simply a natural plant based testosterone booster. This is the anchor story behind pine pollen. It is especially useful for men over 30 who want to age with grace, maximum potential, performance and vitality. Pine Pollen contains significant quantities of highly bioactive steroid-like substances, auxins, cytokinins, gibberellins, brassinosteroids and ethylene. These compounds support the production of more lean muscle mass, increased vitality and performance for men are also associated with a range of anti viral, anti inflammatory, and libido enhancing activity. They further combat a host of age related diseases in men such as prostate protection, colon support, to early hair loss and liver support. It has been used successfully as an adjunct therapy for cancer treatment because of immunostimulating polysaccharides that support increased natural killer cell activity.
The fine yellow gold powder has a complex chemical profile including crucial amino acids, vitamins and minerals when combined with powerful phytoandrogen compounds makes it an ideal superfood?supplement. It also contains a protective enzyme, called Superoxide dismutase SOD,[also found in AFA] that protects your cells from aging. Dehydroepiandrosterone DHEA is a steroid hormone naturally occurring in significant amounts in pine pollen. It is synthesized in multiple parts of the body, the testes, brain, heart and liver and peripheral tissues. Therefore while DHEA may be best known as supporting mood, it is also a potent effective anti aging and overall longevity tonic for men. DHEA is often sold in a synthetic version and this is not recommended and is a banned substance for world class athletes. However, pine pollen tinctures when taken as a daily tonic is a safe and effective nutraceutical for men that can naturally and rapidly increase testosterone, enhance energy, assist with building lean muscle muscle, overall vitality, longevity and sexual performance.
Pine Pollen has a stacked amino acid profile in significant amounts including the powerful mood enhancing neurotransmitters phenylalanine and tyrosine, the infamous L dopa and adrenalin precursors that excite the brain and body. Pine Pollen is a secret gem for older men starting at the age where naturally occurring testosterone begins to decline at roughly age 25.
The complexity of pine pollen continues to be explored and understood. Approximately 1 % of each pollen grain contains a significant amount of arabinogalactan which is an FDA approved dietary supplement that supports multiple aspects of gut and liver health. But has also been found to be helpful in support of chronic fatigue, hepatitis, multiple sclerosis and lyme disease.
Despite its complex nutritional profile, the pure excitement as a supplement lies in its growing reputation as a potent phytoandrogen. With testosterone, epitestosterone and androstenedione are present in significant amounts. The best way for men to take pine pollen is in a tincture, 3 times a day, morning, noon and night to mimic the natural cycles of testosterone the body produces.
The history of medical and food use of pine pollen is focused on China and Korea and today the best clinical research and most mainstream medicinal uses are in this region. In TCM it has been reported to balance out all 5 organs in the body. It was first written about in the Han Dynasty about 2000 years ago.
Today Pine pollen is experiencing a boom in popularity due to its incredibly nutrient dense profile and potent energy enhancing and anti aging properties.
