Pine Pollen is unique in its chemistry. It is a rich source of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. But it truly shines for its high content of plant hormones, in particular phytoandrogens. These plant hormones, known as brassinosteroids, are ‘bioidentical,’ meaning they mimic naturally occurring male hormones.

Our unique dual extraction process in ethanol and glycerin concentrate these nutrients and improve their bioavailability.

There are five classes of healthful hormones in pine pollen:

  • Brassinosteroids (androgen-like plant hormones)
  • Polysaccharides (arabinogalactan and xylogalacturonan)
  • Auxins (cell-stimulating)
  • Polyphenols (antioxidants)
  • Abscisic Acid (anti-cancer)

Our unique cold-extraction technique helps capture the brassinosteroids and polyphenol antioxidants in an ethanol/water mixture. The second water-glycerol medium pulls out the polysaccharides and auxins. The 1:4 ratio with ethanol extractoon in the first round, and then the 1:2 ratio with the glycerin, allows us to deliver a potent 1:6 tincture with the entire spectrum of phytonutrients in pine pollen without altering or harming its integrity in any way.

The final product has 335mg of pine pollen equivalent in each 2mL serving of a highly-absorbable tincture. To get the best results follow the suggested serving on the bottle, start with a low serving (1-3x a day) until you see the desired effect. Note that the tincture absorbs better on an empty stomach.
