Bodybuilders, as the name suggests, want to build muscle , but in a healthy way.
The best way to achieve this is by weight training and a healthy diet.
Bee pollen and bodybuilding is considered by many athletes to be an excellent combination to increase muscle and adding excellent nutrition to their diet at the same time.
Protein is the key nutrient for body builders as amino acids, the building blocks of of protein, are essential for building and repairing tissues and in particular muscles.
Whilst we all need protein, bodybuilders need much more than other non-active people and protein intake is a matter of considerable interest to them.
Enhanced muscles and hard physical exertion increase the need for protein
What is bee pollen?
Bee pollen is a powerful source of nutrition as it has a high protein content of around 40% and contains more than 96 different nutrients necessary for human life.
The overall breakdown is about 55% carbohydrates, 35% protein, 2% essential fatty acids, 3% minerals and vitamins which include vitamins A, C, D, E and B-Complex, enzymes, co-enzymes plus lecithin (fat burner) selenium, beta carotene and more.
Why should bodybuilders be interested?
Of particular interest to bodybuilders is the presence of the 3 BCAA (Branded Chain Amino Acids) which are directly absorbed and metabolized in the muscles which is ideal, and necessary for them.
An added bonus is that bee pollen increases energy and stamina, balances the metabolism, which in turnbalances weight and appetite.
So not only can you build muscle, you can control your weight and appetite which is the way to go for a lean, well muscled, healthy body.
Here we have a natural superfood which is nutrient dense and which contains everything needed by bodybuilders for building muscles in a healthy way.
Where can I buy this bee pollen?
You can enjoy all of these benefits by taking bee pollen supplements which is an easy, and convenient way to obtain a measured dose and which will maximize the benefits.
However, not all supplements are equal and you must look for a clean, reliable source.
The reason is that many bee pollen products are made from contaminated pollen as it is collected in highly industrialized countries such as China, and parts of the USA. where there is airborne pollution and a heavy use of pesticides.
There is however a source which is pristine and free from all pollution, and that place is the country of New Zealand, a place where the prevailing wind is from Antarctica and where the use of chemicals is very strictly controlled.
