Consumed in its natural form, fresh pollen maximizes the digestion of expensive feed and can be mixed with supplements to Maximize their digestion. In addition, a recent study has proven this pollen as having an Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) value of 247 which places it as natures strongest antioxidant ahead of the Black Raspberry by more than 50%. Antioxidants protect the body's cells from damage caused by free radicals .

Premium Pollen Nutrient also contains the highest content of Polyphenols with 200% more than cranberries which, in the past, was believed to have the highest levels.Polyphenols include Bioflavaniods,organic acids,and phenolic acids and most of the antioxidants in food is attributed to its polyphenal content.

Pollen has been used since ancient times as "functional foods" because of their perceived health-promoting effects for the human body. In modern times, this perception - that beehive products promote health due to nutritionally beneficial compounds - has increasingly come under question. The skepticism has been partially due to the lack of scientific studies examining the issue, as well as the scarcity of identifiable and measurable parameters to base health-related studies on. Recently, new laboratory techniques have been developed that make it easier to study the beneficial effects and the nutritional make-up of natural substances. And so, we were not surprised to learn that our Pollen scored the highest ORAC antioxidant score of any of the whole foods yet tested. ORAC Tests
The Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) test** is an emerging standard by which science measures antioxidant activity in foods and dietary supplements. Antioxidants are important to protect the body's cells from damage caused by free radicals (reactive oxygen species). Cell membranes are susceptible to free radicals because they are largely composed of fatty acids (lipid bi-layer). Poly-unsaturated fatty acids are particularly susceptible to free-radical-mediated oxidation because of their unique structure. Cell membrane damage due to oxidation of fatty acid membrane components (lipid peroxidation) can lead to the disruption of the function and structure of entire cells. It is important to maintain normal levels of lipid peroxidation of lipoproteins.
Dietary antioxidants, or free radical-scavengers, may play a preventive role in protecting a person's health. High levels of antioxidant activity, as determined by ORAC, have been found to be present in blueberries and black raspberries. When the ORAC scores of these berries became known annual consumption of those fruits increased dramatically. Berries became reputed to be the foods possessing the most antioxidant activity of all the whole foods. The highest ORAC scores for wild blueberries is listed at 61 ORAC units (umole TE/g). Black raspberries scored higher at 164 ORAC units (see attached ORAC Comparison Chart).
Recently, Grand Blossom’s Pollen tested for ORAC antioxidant activity by an independent lab. The result was 247 ORAC units, the highest score ever recorded for any whole food. As a "functional food", nothing comes close to to this pollen.
Polyphenol Quantification Tests
Certain laboratories are now also measuring the polyphenol content of foods and supplements. Polyphenols are called aromatic compounds, and they are biochemically characterized by the presence of six-carbon rings with an attached hydroxy (OH) group, called phenols. A molecule that contains more than one phenolic ring is called a polyphenol. Polyphenols, as a class of nutrients, include bioflavonoids, organic acids, and phenolic acids. Most of the antioxidant activity of a food is created by polyphenols. Polyphenols have been extensively studied in terms of their antioxidant activity and health-promoting biological activities. Generally, total polyphenol content is regarded as a measure of the health-promoting qualities of a whole food.
Once again, Grand Blossom’s Pollen tested, this time for total polyphenol content, and the results were the highest polyphenol content of any food yet tested, at 15.05 mg/g. The next highest reading was cranberries at 5.575 mg/g.

Think about it!

Ever see a horse reach over and try to eat the flowers from a wreath after they just won a race or a show? Well it isn't because of the pretty colors! Our horses crave the pollen in those flowers because it is a natural source of nutrition.
