The healing power of pine pollen that everyone needs to know

Many of us are familiar with the beneficial properties of pine. For medicinal purposes, we use pine essential oil, needles, gum, and kidneys. But few people know that pine pollen also has useful healing properties. We will talk today about what kind of product it is, how it is useful and how to take it.

It is really very useful for your health due to its physiotherapists who, based on numerous studies, confirm the effectiveness of this remedy. In addition, you can find a large number of positive reviews of those who successfully use pine pollen for healing. So let's talk briefly about what are the beneficial properties of pine pollen.

 

Composition of coniferous pollen

Before talking about the beneficial properties of pine pollen, you need to understand its composition. This natural product contains a large number of fats, proteins, and lipids. Of the amino acids in the pollen, glycine, glutamic acid and threonine are present.

Pine pollen is a unique source of vitamins B1, B2, B6, B12, C, A. It contains a large number of flavonoids - plant components that regulate many internal systems of human organs.

Also, in the pollen of coniferous trees, there are the following substances necessary for human health:

  • Macroelements - phosphorus, magnesium, potassium, calcium;
  • Trace elements - zinc, selenium, copper, iron.

This combination of components makes pine pollen a healing product that is used to treat serious pathologies.

Beneficial features

Herbalists dispel misconceptions that pine pollen can be an allergen. Even thoughpollinosis is present in a high concentration in pine, coniferous pollen does not provoke allergic reactions. This is explained by its chemical composition and the fact that conifer grains are quite small, unlike alder and birch. With such grain sizes, pollen is completely microscopic and does not enter the bronchi, but lingers on the mucous membranes of the upper respiratory tract.

Let's look at together in more detail the beneficial properties of pine pollen.

 With tuberculosis

Pine pollen is a natural antibiotic effective against Koch bacillus, the causative agent of pulmonary disease. After taking decoctions based on pollen, the reproduction of mycobacteria slows down and their gradual death occurs.

 

Cardiovascular protection

Antioxidants, pine pollen flavonoids remove toxins from the body, toxins, which, in turn, reduces the level of bad cholesterol and lipids in the blood. Due to this action, the tool becomes a good prevention of stroke, atherosclerosis, and the growth of cholesterol plaques in the vessels. With regular intake of pine pollen supplements or infusions, blood circulation, capillary permeability, and elasticity, oxygen supply to the brain and neurons improves.

Normalization of the intestines

In clinical trials, it was found that the cause of upset stomach is often stress, constant emotional decline. The composition of pine pollen contains magnesium and calcium, which help relieve nervous tension, as a result of which the work of the digestive tract is normalized.  

                                

Coniferous pollen accelerates the digestion of food, the absorption of nutrients, improves intestinal motility, and normalizes appetite. Given these properties of the product, it is recommended to use it to treat diarrhea. Patients suffering from constipation respond particularly well to pollen. This is explained by the fact that vitamin B6, which is part of the composition, relaxes muscles during a spasm.

ARC REVIEW My One and Only Cowboy by A.J. Pine
My One and Only Cowboy (Meadow Valley, #1)Meadow Valley Ranch #1, A nice start to the series. A.J. Pine delivers yet another wonderful story. Sam Callahan his younger brother Ben and their friend Colt all chipped in and bought Meadow Valley Ranch a sort of B&B Ranch. Sam and Ben choose Meadow Valley, California because the close proximity to their Dad's care facility. After two years they are still trying to get into the black when Delaney Harper shows up saying her ex-husband forged her signature and sold the ranch without her permission. Delaney wasn't going to leave town until this got figured out but with the whole town being shut down for the festival she was stuck for over a week and then she crashed her car and ended up stranded at the ranch. Sam who was fascinated with her from the start offers that she stay at the ranch, not one to take advantage she offers to work in exchange. No stranger to hard work Delaney starts right in and she offers help with advertising at the festival she was able to give the guys ideas they hadn't thought of yet. Delaney is no stranger to the hospitality business either after growing up in her parents hotel in Las Vegas. Delaney had bigger dreams she went to school to be a vet tech and had originally bought the ranch to open up an animal rescue and saw that dream disappear when she found out the ranch had sold.

Sam and Delaney start off shaky but soon give into their sexual attraction. A steamy romance that also deals with Sam and Ben's relationship with their father and sets up what I hope is Ben's story. With a bit of action thrown into it at the end makes the whole story a nice read. Overall, well written with memorable characters and one very sweet dog.

While females may be as qualified as males, this book overdoes the point.
A Minute to Midnight (Atlee Pine series) - David Baldacci

A Minute to Midnight, David Balducci, author; Brittany Pressley and Kyf Brewer, narrators.

Female FBI agent Atlee Pine has suffered a setback in her career because of an overreaction when she caught a pedophile with a young girl. Although she rescued the girl, she also beat the pedophile to a pulp. Her superior understood her reaction, and he did not discipline her, but instead, he gave her the opportunity to use some time off to reconcile her emotional issues concerning her twin sister’s disappearance. She set out to find out what she could about the crime that had occurred more than two decades ago, when her sister Mercy had been kidnapped. She and Mercy were six years old at the time. Atlee was left for dead with a fractured skull. Her sister was never found. Her parents were devastated, and her father was accused of the crime. Eventually, her parents left town in secret.

As years passed, Atlee was never told the truth about her background, although she did not realize it until this investigation. She knew that her father killed himself on her birthday and that her mother abandoned her when she was in college, leaving her enough money to finish her education. However, she discovered that the rest of her life was a fiction. She was never able to find her mom or discover the truth about her sister’s disappearance, either. Now she hoped to at least find out something about Mercy.

When she returns to her home town, with her assistant, Carol Blum, she discovers that her mother and father had different names and a past she had not known. While she searches for answers about her sister’s fate, additional murders take place around her. She assists in the investigation and pretty much takes it over. She wonders if there is a serial killer on the loose? Are the murders related to her return? Has everyone told her the whole story about her family, or are they holding back facts? Somehow, in bits and pieces she realizes that she knows little about herself or anything else, and she places herself in great danger.

Atlee acts as if she is superior to everyone else, and she often has a chip on her shoulder. Her responses to others are authoritarian, abrupt and sarcastic. I did not find her very likeable. Sometimes she actually seemed to be endowed with supernatural capabilities, almost like a superhero, surviving situations that should have killed her. The author seemed to want to stress the fact that women are at least as capable, if not more so, than men in similar situations.

The author would not have written such trite dialogue between men, as he did between the women in the book. It was often glib and pointless. I found the book disappointing. I thought that the narrator over emoted, and her interpretation of the characters made me dislike most of them. Although Atlee’s insights were often spot on, and she was very fit and strong, I found her to be ruled by emotions not brains. She is painted as the sharpest knife in the drawer, the brightest bulb in the box, the genius who somehow instinctively solves all problems. However, the novel feels like it is chick lit at best, filled with trite platitudes and hackneyed conversations, not up to the standards of this author.

I won’t be listening to the next book they indicated is coming in this series and was disappointed that the book left me hanging without Atlee solving the mystery of her sister or her mother’s location. While the book tackles civil rights, women’s rights, sex trafficking, drugs, porn, and other crimes high on the liberal list of causes, it seemed to do so in  a trivial manner to me. It was almost as if the author did it for the sake of his liberal leanings. I would not recommend this book to others. It held my interest, but only because I thought it would get better. It really didn't improve.
