Pine Pollen - Vitamins And Pine Pollen

Vitamins And Pine Pollen

The majority of vitamins cannot be synthesized by the body, and thus they are essential, just as some amino acids are essential. Unlike amino acids, which the body does not store, many vitamins are stored in the body. Vitamins help orchestrate the symphony of the human body, and without healthy levels, the body will start to shut down certain functions depending on the missing vitamin. For instance, it is well-known that a lack of Vitamin D results in rickets: a lack of Vitamin B12 results in pernicious anemia, and a lack of Vitamin C results in scurvy. Vitamins are neither components of tissue in the body nor do they supply energy. Instead, vitamins make it possible for the body to produce and maintain tissue and vitamins make it possible for the body to metabolize energy producing compounds (like glucose or fat). 

Over 15 different types of vitamins have been identified in Pine Pollen. Each vitamin is naturally occurring and is easily digestible. Unlike isolated and synthesized/synthetic products, the vitamins found in Pine Pollen are present in their natural state and exist alongside their needed co-vitamins and coenzymes. The following table lists 10 of the vitamins present in Pine Pollen, the levels of those vitamins as found in 65 grams, and a very brief overview of the role in the body of that particular vitamin. Again, this table is not intended to be comprehensive either in the listing of the vitamins present in Pine Pollen or in the role each individual vitamin plays in human health. 

Select Vitamin Content And Analysis

Vitamin - ug/65gm Highlighted Role of Vitamin in the body

Beta Carotene

16.9 A precursor to Vitamin A, as such, assists in vision; health of cornea, epithelial cells, mucus cells/membranes, skin; bone and tooth growth; regulation of gene expression; reproduction; immunity. Beta-carotene is an antioxidant.*

Folic acid - Vitamin A 

607.1 Component of a co-enzyme required for new cell synthesis.* 28.08 Vision; health of cornea, epithelial cells, mucus cells/membranes, skin; bone and tooth growth; regulation of gene expression; reproduction; immunity.*

Vitamin B1 /Thiamine 

3945.5 Part of the B-complex, helps build sugars and amino acids in the body. Promotes the synthesis of the neurotransmitters acetylcholine (needed)
for proper neuron/brain cell signaling and GABA (which promotes relaxation).*

Vitamin B2 / Riboflavin 

315.9 Essential for the synthesis of flavin mononucleotide (FMN) and flavin adenine dinucleotide (FAD), two cofactors responsible for many functions in the body, including metabolism/energy production and the conversion of vitamins to their active states.*

Vitamin B5 / Pantothenic acid

9249.5 Essential for the synthesis of coenzyme A (CoA), needed for proper energy metabolism via the citric acid cycle, and for the synthesis of many
compounds, including fatty acids, cholesterol, and acetylcholine.*

Vitamin B6 / Thiamin 

845 Component of a co-enzyme required for energy metabolism. Supports normal appetite and nervous system function.*

Vitamin C 

36530 Collagen synthesis (strengthens vessel walls, formation of scar tissue, formation of bone matrix); antioxidant (also assists with iron absorption), restores vitamin E back to active form, hormone synthesis, supporting immune cell function.*

Vitamin D3 

14.82 Mineralization of bones. Vitamin D raises blood calcium and phosphorus levels via absorption at digestive tract and by withdrawing calcium from bones and stimulating calcium retention at the kidney.*

Vitamin E 2106

Antioxidant, stabilization of cell membranes, support of immune function, protection of polyunsaturated fatty acids, normal nerve development.*
