The supremely under-known superfood of pine pollen is making its return back into the awareness of humanity at an accelerated pace and comes with it an unrivaled powerhouse of nutrients that feed the body and the soul. Because of the times we are in, we can consider pine pollen to be the top superfood one can consume.
What is Pine Pollen?
Pine pollen is a yellow dust-like substance that is incredibly fine and is a superfood that comes from various pine tree species. While the word superfood is far too commonly used in health and wellness circles, pine pollen far surpasses the threshold for qualifying as such.
The top benefits include: healthy testosterone levels for men, healthy estrogen levels for women, brain health, detoxification, cardiovascular support, healthy endocrine function, liver health, joint health and more. Within that matrix of pollen contains an abundance of nutrients and some are found in concentrations unlike any other source found in nature. This includes over 200+ bioactive nutrients that the human body can use like 14 vitamins, 24 minerals, all of the 20+ amino acids, 18 living enzymes, essential fatty acids and nature highest source of phytohormones.
Phytohormones are also known as brassinosteroids or phytoandrogens and are bio-identical to human hormones.
These plant-derived growth factors are called brassinosteroids and include androgens like testosterone and androstenedione. Like phytoestrogens, these phytoandrogens play equally, if not more important roles in both aging men and women.
Brassinosteroids are found throughout the plant kingdom, such as 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…but the highest concentration of these plant molecules are found in pine pollen.
We share some of our DNA with the pine trees; namely, genes that code for the making of bio-identical humans gene androgens like testosterone and DHEA.
In other words, us humans are wired for the consumption of pine pollen to help us on a DNA and genetic level.
Remember from above that these phytoandrogens play equally important roles for both men and women and are strong supporters of libido, healthy hormone production, brain health, mental outlook and a healthy metabolism. In fact, pine pollen contains phenylalanine, which is associated with dopamine levels in the brain and is an L-dopa precursor. L-dopa has been known to specifically treat a woman’s inability to have an orgasm. Pine Pollen also contains arginine, which helps boost circulation throughout the body and has been shown to support fertility in women and men.
It also influences growth hormone (GH) release.
The Mickey-mouse shaped pollen grain is a single living plant cell and the two “ears” capture air and help carry the pollen grain. The complex sugars, which are also known as polysaccharides, along with the strong antioxidants, protect the pollen’s DNA against radiation and environmental damage while floating through the air.
Once the grains land on pine seed, it must stay attached to the seed with its germination filament for one full year. Then a second burst, the following year, leads to the transfer of its DNA.
Within the pollen there is an abundance of amino acids, vitamins, minerals, phytoandrogens and other nutrients that stimulate rapid, anabolic growth through this second year burst.
The Spiritual Significance of the Pine Cone and Pine Pollen
The pineal gland has long been espoused as the “seat of the soul” and helps produce endogenous melatonin as well as dimethyltryptamine (DMT).
Many spiritual traditions have referred to the pineal gland as a pine cone-shaped object located directly in the middle of the brain and have honored this organ for its ability to stimulate the secretion of multiple sacred substances, some of which mainstream science has yet to fully acknowledge.
The pine pollen is nature’s highest source of a hormone called DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone), which is commonly used for upliftment, happiness, outlook, mood and is a strong stimulator of neurogenesis, which is the creation of new neurons in the brain.
Additionally, DHEA is often referred to as the master hormone because it is through DHEA that all other hormones branch off. It begins as a neutral hormone and then can be converted to both male and females hormones, making it the king and queen of hormones.
This also helps give DHEA the benefits of supporting increased mental and physical energy levels, muscle strength, immune system support and a healthy, youthful metabolism. One study published in Nature showed that “Compared with placebo, DHEA reduced activity in the amygdala and hippocampus, enhanced connectivity between the amygdala and hippocampus, and enhanced activity in the rACC (rostral anterior cingulated cortex). These activation changes were associated with reduced negative affect. DHEA reduced memory accuracy for emotional stimuli, and also reduced activity in regions associated with conjunctive memory encoding. These results demonstrate that DHEA reduces activity in regions associated with generation of negative emotion and enhances activity in regions linked to regulatory processes.”
With nature’s highest source of DHEA as well as the phytohormones listed above, it is no wonder these trees are so majestic. Can the consumption of the pollen from certain pine trees help us then to become our best, majestic selves?
The company I co-founded called Ascent Nutrition offers the world’s cleanest and most unique pine pollen products out there, which will be briefly explained below.
While most pine pollen products are sourced from China, we source ours from remote Canadian forests and wild-harvest with love and respect for nature. Our product also remains a wild, raw and LIVING superfood.
Additionally, we go the extra steps to utilize the most unique and potent extraction the industry.
Most companies will use “cracked cell-wall pine pollen,” whereas we use the whole uncracked cell-wall pine pollen. This allows for our pollen to not be damaged by light and for nutrients to begin degrading.
Notice the difference below.
Ascent Nutrition’s pine pollen is the bright golden, yellow color in the top two bins. Because our pine pollen is uncracked, oxidation does not occur and ALL of the nutrients within remain alive and fully potent.
Cracked cell-wall pine pollen, as seen in the darker brown bin, oxidizes quickly and the brown color results from nutrients losing their potency.
The question then becomes, which would you prefer?
We do sell out fast and have a monthly limited supply, so if you are even mildly interested, the time to try it out is now. This isn’t a marketing statement either, as these sell quite rapidly! You can view Ascent Nutrition’s Pine Pollen Powder here. The Pine Pollen Tincture can be seen here. Thank you everyone for your support! We have incredibly exciting things coming soon!
