Bee Pollen Turns out, Pooh Bear was on to something: bee products. "The pollen that collects on bees' bodies is 40 percent protein and contains all of the essential amino acids, trace minerals, enzymes, and folic acid," says Vicario. This makes bee products an ideal supplement for vegetarians, who can't get such benefits from meat. Bee pollen also contains nearly all B vitamins, making this super food a great energy booster come the midday slump.
Fellow bee product honey is rich in antioxidants and minerals when in its organic, raw and unfiltered state, but bee pollen outshines it as a super food. Add bee pollen to your diet by stirring it into your morning smoothie or juice.
