What is Pine Pollen?
Pine pollen is the powdery dust that is produced by male spores on pine trees. Tiny grains leave the trees as golden dust, which is collected from the wild and processed at a very low temperature to ‘crack’ the cell wall of the pollen. This result? A superior product that’s 100% natural and 99% digestible - which means almost every grain of goodness is absorbed into your body.
We sustainably source wild pine pollen, which is carefully harvested every Spring. Once used by Chinese royalty, pine pollen’s reputation has now made it a superstar superfood in the West.
Pine pollen contains over 200 of them, including Vitamins A, B Complex, C, D2 and D3, E, 22 amino acids, zinc, magnesium, enzymes, selenium, polysaccharides, all the essential fatty acids, and antioxidants. It’s believed to be approximately 30% protein (and a complete protein too), which makes it an excellent natural supplement for vegans and vegetarians.
Pine pollen contains an organic sulfur compound called MSM.
How Do I Use Pine Pollen?
Our pine pollen is ready to use, so you can simply stir a teaspoon of it into your tea, blitz it up in your green smoothie, or sprinkle it over your food as a new type of seasoning. It’s totally vegan-friendly, and the hint of pine will add a delicious twist to your nutritious creations. Many people like to take pine pollen as a simple 'shot' to help perk them up in the mornings (see below for our pine pollen shot recipe). Pine pollen can also be mixed in with natural skin care creams and applied topically. Try creating a paste using a small amount of water mixed in with a little pine pollen. You can use this mixture like a natural face mask by applying it to the skin and then washing it off after five minutes.
Pine pollen also blends well with a range of other superfoods and medicinal mushrooms including goji berry powder. and tremella mushroom. You can create your own tonic elixirs by experimenting with different ingredients to come up with a blend that is perfect for your needs and tastes.

How Much Pine Pollen Should I Use? Pine Pollen Dose
Pine pollen can be pretty potent, and a little goes a long way, so if it's your first time trying these tiny grains of golden goodness then we suggest starting with a smaller dose of around 1/2 a teaspoon. You can then adjust your dose to around 1 teaspoon should you wish to do so.
