At Canadian Pine Pollen Co., we take several measures that ensure our pine pollen tinctures are of the utmost quality. We exclusively wild-harvest limited batches of pine pollen from the wild forests of British Columbia. We don't crack our pine pollen cells and thus never expose the pollen to air or light. So our pollen is always fresh - never heat-treated, UV irradiated, gas or microwave sterilized as compared to imported varieties of pine pollen. We use 100% non cracked, pure, wild, raw, and living pine pollen to make our tinctures. Lastly we use a proprietary dual extraction process that efficiently concentrates the four classes of beneficial compounds: stamina promoting androgens, longevity related plant growth hormones, Potent flavonoid antioxidants, and immune stimulating polysaccharides.
