Endless Benefits of Bee Pollen

Sunday, 22 July 2012

The miraculous healing power of natural bee pollen is so good it is almost unbelievable. It is only through understanding its pharmacological actions and personally consuming bee pollen that you can really experience its effectiveness.

Instead of directly curing the symptoms of various diseases, bee pollen strengthens the natural healing ability of all your body's cells. Hence, the results is not immediate, but with patience and confidence, you will definitely see the benefits in the long run.

What are the Benefits of Bee Pollen?

1. Digestive System

Gastrointestinal diseases
Pollen contains natural acidic antibiotics, which has powerful antibacterial functions against salmonella. As it balances the bacterial flora in your gastrointestinal system, it discourages food poisoning. It is able to heal gastric ulcers and gastroptosis (prolapse of the stomach).

Poor appetite
Problems relating to poor appetite include frequent discomfort in the stomach and abnormal digestive functions. Pollen can promote normal digestive functions and encourage normal good appetite.

Pollen can get rid of excessive fat that has built up under the sebaceous tissues, and promote normal absorption of nutrients and efficient excretion of metabolic wastes.

Problems relating to smoking, drinking and bad breath
Excessive smoking can lead to arteriosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), parched mouth, scorched tongue, throat discomfort etc. The various constituents of pollen are effective in preventing the onset of arteriosclerosis, detoxifying the body, removing bad breath, and relieving intoxication.

Pollen can bring rapid results in improving sluggish bowel movements, including constipation caused by fatigue or discomfort. Pollen is also exceptional against diarrhea.

2. Immune system

Frequent bouts of common cold
There is actually no specific cure for common cold. Having a strong immune system is the route for early recovery. Pollen is helpful against common cold as it can strengthen our physical constitution.

3. Skin

Gray hair
Pollen contains sulphur, a natural substance that is essential for reducing the formation of gray hair and promoting healthy hair growth.

Dandruff, allergies to cosmetics, rough lips
Deficiencies of riboflavin, vitamin B6 and pyridoxin can cause dandruff, allergies to cosmetics and rough lips. Consuming pollen can help improve these conditions.

Dull complexion, pimples, pigmentation, freckles
Dieting to lose weight can lead to pale face, dull complexion and susceptibility to formation of wrinkles and pigmentation spots. The rutins and iron content in pollen is capable of constantly increasing the number of red corpuscles, hence giving your facial skin a radiant healthy glow.

4. Chronic diseases

Pollen contains anti-tumor substances that are effective in suppressing the proliferation of cancerous cells. The enzymatic actions of pollen works with the nutrients to produce synergistic anti-cancer results and establish an alkaline physical constitution, which prevents cancer.

Pollen is helpful in prevention obesity, revitalizing body organs, eliminating cholesterol and maintaining an alkaline inner environment. Hence it is beneficial to treat diabetes.

Heart diseases, hypertension and cerebral hemorrhage (bleeding in the brain)
Pollen is effective in reinforcing the contraction of cardiac muscles and hence effective in alleviating arteriosclerosis. Pollen contains rutin, a substance that can lower blood pressure to a desirable level, increase the resistance of blood capillaries and prevent bleeding.

5. Male / Female problems

Chronic prostatitis (inflammation of prostate gland)
Chronic prostatitis is characterized by difficulty in urination, chalky urine, decreased volume of urine as well as feeling tired easily and even impotence. In 1960, a researcher reported a success rate of 80% in treating his prostatitis patients using pollen. Nagasaki Medical University of Japan also reported a success rate of 80% with rapid recovery of the patients.

Low sperm count
As pollen is the male productive cells of a flower, it is equivalent to the spermatozoa of a man. The government of Norway has officially recognized the efficacy of pollen in improving sperm count.

Menopausal disturbances
Pollen produces incredible results for women with irregular or abnormal menstrual period. A gynecologist from Vienna prescribed her patients with edible pollen for 3 times a day and achieved the intended results within 2 weeks, attaining a success rate of 90% on cases of menopausal disturbances that other forms of treatment are ineffective on.

6. Children

Retarded mental development
For children who suffer from mental retardation and poor reflex responses, consumption of pollen can help sharpen their mental acuity, particularly the ability to master math subjects. As pollen is found to possess growth factors, it is especially helpful for young kids with problems relating to retarded development growth and intellectual maldevelopoment.

Dermatitis (inflammation of the skin)
Pollen can heal allergic dermatitis, which is common among children. There are cases of dermatitis which could not heal for 5 years even after being treated with medicines and ointments. Clinical experiments established that these cases have shown full recovery after just 1 month of consuming pollen.

7. Others

Excessively low blood pressure, chest distress and dizziness are symptoms of anaemia or low hemoglobin level. Pollen is a powerful tonic for patients who are bedridden, recuperating or suffering from excessive bleeding.

Insomnia and nervousness
Chronic mental fatigue can cause insomnia and nervousness, which will lead to frequent bouts of headache, absentmindedness and inability to concentrate. The root cause is the weakening of diencephalon (interbrain), which is the central mechanism that maintains life. Consumption of pollen can help restore its normal functions.

Enlarged Prostate and Sexual Dysfunction

Saturday, 21 July 2012

Benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH) is a common condition seen in middle-aged and elderly men. This enlargement of the prostate gland causes many problems like impeding the flow of urine, causing bleeding during urination, causing kidney damage as well as affecting a man's sexual life.

Yes. Multiple studies have shown that BPH and sexual dysfunction are inter-related. BPH is a stronger predictor of sexual dysfunction compared to diabetes, heart disease or hypertension. In fact, erectile function has been shown to deteriorate in tandem with worsening symptoms of BPH.

How does BPH cause worsening of sexual function?

Because of the failure of relaxation of the smooth muscle. The relaxation of the smooth muscle in the erectile tissue of the penis is needed for engorgement of the penis with blood. Similarly, relaxation of the smooth muscle in the prostate and bladder neck is needed for urine to pass out of the bladder through the penis. When there is failure of relaxation of the smooth muscle in the penis, this leads to erection difficulties; while in the prostate and bladder neck, urination difficulties occur.

Medication prescribed by doctors fall into 2 groups - alpha blockers (terazosin, doxazosin, alfuzosin, tamsulosin and silodosin) and 5alpha reductase inhibitors (finasteride and dutasteride). However, even though they improve symptoms of BPH, they have varying negative effects on sexual function eg. detrimental effects in ejaculation, decrease in sexual desire and erectile dysfunction.

If erectile dysfunction occurs as a result of BPH treatment, phosphodiestaerase-5 inhibitor medications like vardenafil, tadalafil and sildenafil can be used. However, the side effect is, there is higher risk of drop in blood pressure when taken together with alpha blockers.

What is the Deal with Bee Pollen

Tuesday, 17 July 2012

Pollen is the male reproductive cells produced by the anther of a seed plant. Seed plants depend on pollens to fertilize. Upon fertilization, a grain of pollen can grow into tens of thousands times its original size within a few days, showing how highly nutritive it is.

Wind-pollinated flowers are fertilized by pollen carried by the wind. Pollen from these flowers are smoother, smaller in size, and dry. They tend to cause pollen-related diseases and therefore inappropriate for human consumption.

The pollen from flowers of insect and bee-pollinated plants are richer in nutrients and safe for human consumption. Bees use their fore legs to harvest the pollen grains and mix them with nectar and saliva they secrete to form pollen balls. These are stored in their hind legs and taken back to the beehive as their staple food. Bee larvae are fed with these pollen balls and their body-size can grow a thousand folds within several days after birth.

What is in a Grain of Pollen?

According to research works carried out by nutritionists, the wide spectrum of nutrients provided by a grain of pollen is unmatchable to any single food on earth. It has been proven that pollen contains up to 200 different types of nutritive components. The main ones are:

1. More than 16 vitamins
Pollen is rich in vitamins of high bio-availability, including vitamins A, C, D, E, K, M, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, B9 (folic acid or folate), nicotinic acid and inositol. They can be readily absorbed and digested by our body.

2. More than 16 minerals
Pollen contains trace elements and a wide variety of minerals including phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, silicon, sulphur, iron, copper, sodium, calcium and titanium.

3. More than 21 amino acids
Amino acids are the fundamental building blocks of protein. More than half of the types of protein molecules contained in pollen exist in the form of free amino acids, which can be directly absorbed into our body without having to go through the digestive processes.

4. More than 28 nucleic acids
These include nucleotide (which makes up the structural units of DNA and RNA) and purine.

5. More than 96 enzymes and coenzymes
These include amylase (starch enzyme) and proteinase (protein enzyme), which are helpful in effectively breaking down food molecules, and vital in our metabolic processes.

6. Carbohydrates
These include many types of simple sugar such a monosaccharides and disaccharides, which give our body the energy it needs to fuel our activities.

What is a Good Quality Pollen?

There are many pollen products available in the market. Which brand has the nutrients as listed above?
Answer: Yung Kien Pollen.

It uses pollen grains collected by honeybees. In ensuring 100% bio-availability of the nutrients, raw pollen grains are subject to safety and hygienic processes to get rid of any impurities and bacteria before being extracted under the most stringent temperature and humidity controls. It is absolutely free from artificial chemicals, additives, preservatives, or any other substances not originated from the pollen itself.

The manufacturing process of Yung Kien Pollen is as follows:

1. The temperature applied to kill the bacteria, virus and organisms is 50'C to 60'C.
2. This process takes 3 days to complete.

This ensures Yung Kien Pollen is produced in a very safe manner and yet retains it's efficacy.


Do you know that some pollen contains antibiotics? This is because the bees are fed with antibiotics so they don't fall sick easily and die. The antibiotics in their saliva stick to the pollen and get consumed by us. It is very harmful to our liver in the long term.

Do you also know that another way to reduce the cost of production relates to the method of killing the bacteria in the pollen? Such companies use ovens with temperature of 100'C and the process is completed within 2 hours. Such high heat destroys a lot of the nutrients in the pollen. They become less effective.

Shuang Hor does NOT employ such methods, hence Yung Kien Pollen is safe to be consumed at high dose and is very effective.

Preventing Colon Cancer

Friday, 13 July 2012

Colorectal cancer (cancer of the colon (large intestine) and rectum) is currently the 2nd most common cancer among men and women. It usually starts as a polyp, which is a small growth in the walls of the colon. Most polyps are benign, but as they grow, can become malignant and develop into colon cancer.

Lack of Symptoms

Colon cancer can be deadly because it exhibits no outward symptoms in the early stages. By the time there are symptoms, the cancer has probably spread to other parts of the body. Detecting colon cancer at the early stage increases the chances of treating it.

Some Telltale Signs
  • Blood in the stools. Diarrhea or constipation for no obvious reason, lasting longer than 6 weeks
  • A feeling of not having emptied the bowel properly after a bowel motion
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Pain in the abdomen (frequent gas pains, bloating, fullness, cramps)
  • Constant tiredness
  • Vomiting
Risk Factors
  • Age - 50 years and above.
  • Family history - your risk is higher if your parents / siblings have colon cancer or polyps.
  • Unhealthy diet - high in fat and calories and low in fibre.
  • Unhealthy lifestyle - smoking, alcohol intake, sedentary lifestyle, overweight.
  • Personal history of cancer - women who had cancer of the ovary, uterus or breast are more like to develop colon cancer.

How to Reduce the Risk
  • Ensure regular check-ups if above 50 years old. Check-ups may include a physical examination, a faecal occult blood test, a colonoscopy, chest X-rays and lab tests.
  • Maintain a healthy diet. A balanced, nutritious diet will keep you healthy and cope with the cancer and side effects of treatment.
  • Exercise regularly.
  • Limit alcohol consumption and quit smoking.
Colon cancer is a preventable disease. Act now to prevent colon cancer.

What is Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease and How to Prevent It

Monday, 2 July 2012

Fatty liver is expected to be a major health problem in Malaysia due to increasingly affluent lifestyles and poor dietary habits. These factors have led to the increasing prevalence of obesity amongst Malaysians. Fatty livers that are not well managed can progress to liver scarring, hardening and also liver cancer.

Fatty liver is a condition where excess fats are deposited in liver cells. Excessive accumulation of fats (where it exceeds 5% of the liver's weight) can lead to inflammation and liver tissue scarring (fibrosis).

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is a condition when there are fatty deposits in the livers of people who never drink alcohol. Fatty liver is a strong factor that puts such people at risk for cardiovascular or heart disease. The conditions of diabetes and obesity have strong links. Diabetics who have poor blood sugar control are at increased risk of having liver disease. People who are overweight and have high blood cholesterol also have a higher tendency to accumulate fat in the liver.

The widespread presence of NAFLD is disturbingly high worldwide, reported to be between 15% and 30% in Western countries (including Malaysia) and 18% to 30% in Japan. Unfortunately, most of the NAFLD are discovered incidentally e.g. when doctors find an enlarged liver or notice abnormal liver function test readings, in the course of looking for something unrelated. This is because the symptoms of liver disease are usually not obvious, e.g. tiredness, or a general feeling of being unwell.

There is no drug that can effectively cure NAFLD at the moment, even though some scientific studies are being done on tocotrienols from palm oil. While waiting for medical breakthroughs, a sensible solution is lifestyle modifications like exercising and watching one's diet.

However, there are over 30 scientific studies which have been published on the usage of ganoderma (lingzhi) in liver protection. Numerous statistical data have been collected from tens of thousands of people who showed improvements in their health after taking ganoderma. The advantages of ganoderma are well acknowledged in its role in protecting the liver.
