Pine pollen is nature's superfood gone wild on steroids!
Much of the excitement regarding the benefits of pine pollen exist because of phytoandrogens. Pine pollen contains natural phytoandrogens; a functional source of plant based molecules that offer an alternate to synthetic or prescription hormone. Like phytoestrogens, these phytoandrogens play equal role in both aging men and women.
Brassinosteroids are found throughout the plant kingdom: in new growths, germinating seeds, and young vegetative tissues. Superfoods like wheat-grass juice, germinated broccoli seed, and certain sprouts have these nourishing plant hormones: they help detoxify and have anabolic impact on cell growth.
