What I love about Teelixir’s Pine Pollen
I love the benefits of course!
Teelixir’s Pine Pollen is also 100% Wildcrafted and has been third-party tested and quality verified so you know you’re getting the real deal, without fillers. It is also 98% cracked cell wall which helps absorption.
A sweet, slightly bitter taste that mixes perfectly into warm beverages to become almost completely undetectable. For those with a sensitive palate, Teelixir’s Pine Pollen blends perfectly without leaving any clumps. A little trick I like to do is add the Pine Pollen powder to my mug with a teaspoon of honey and mix it into a paste before adding it to my coffee (or your warm drink of choice).
What would make me love it even more?
I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again! Would love to see Teelixir switch to using glass jars for their products. The press-down tin lid they currently use is fine, but at times can be hard to close completely to keep the powder from clumping. This doesn’t affect the product at all and is more the convenience of simply twisting a lid closed rather than pressing one down.
The Juicy Stuff (The Health Benefits)
In TCM and throughout Asia, Pine trees have been used for their medicinal benefits for centuries - with the two main compounds used being red pine needle oil and pine pollen powder. The list of reported health benefits of Pine Pollen is exceptionally long and well-documented.
Pine Pollen is considered an adaptogenic herb which means it may help balance your body by adapting its effects to whatever conditions are present. Need energy? Here you go. Feeling frazzled and needing help calming down? Let me nourish that nervous system for you.
Pine Pollen is an extremely powerful androgen as it is a natural source of the all-important hormone DHEA (Dehydroepiandrosterone). DHEA is a hormone that your body naturally produces in the adrenal glands. It is the largest raw material your body uses to produce all of those important hormones: Estrogen, Progesterone, and Testosterone.
Pine pollen is rich in nutrients including Vitamins B1, B2, B6, E, C, D2, D3, and A, nicotinamide, folic acid, B-carotin, potassium, sodium, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, iron, manganese, copper, zinc and selenium. Top those off with a decent serving of amino acids, carbohydrates, protein, and fatty acids and you have yourself one very well-rounded, nutrient-dense, super duper food. (Superfoods are so 2022, we’re going with super duper foods now).
Pine Pollen is rich in antioxidants and is shown to help reduce inflammation caused by free radicals.

Energy Restoring – Anti Fatigue
The best example of traditional uses of Pine Pollen can be found in the Traditional Chinese Medicine System. The use of Pine Pollen was first recorded in the Tang Dynasty’s Xin Xui Ben Cao in 618 AD (over 1400 years ago!)
Pine Pollen was traditionally used in TCM as a restorative longevity tonic. It was used to moisten the lungs, relieve fatigue and improve endurance, support the immune system and health of the skin, heart, and GI tract, and increase physical endurance and mental agility. A ‘Jing’ tonic is essentially an overall ‘Lifeforce’ ‘Qi’ energy enhancer.

Who should not take Pine Pollen?
You should avoid pine pollen if you have any kind of pollen allergy, are pregnant or breastfeeding. You should always consult a health specialist or GP before taking any new herb or supplement.
How long will it take to feel the benefits?
Everybody is a unique body so there is no clear-cut answer to this. You may at once feel benefits, or it may take a month or more to feel benefits. Just because you may not feel anything change right away, the change will start immediately internally. As with any health or lifestyle regime, consistency is key! Pine Pollen is a potent remedy and benefits will build over time.
What is a cracked cell wall and why is it beneficial?
The cell wall of Pine Pollen is tough so sometimes it is ‘cracked’ to make the inner nutrients more bioavailable for your system.

Alternatives I think are worth considering:

A stand-alone tonic that helps to nourish our nervous system, in turn helping to balance all our important hormones.
An exceptional blend for overall health and vitality from a brand that lives and breathes excellence in the Medicinal Mushroom and Tonic Herb world.
The Bottom Line
Pine Pollen packs a punch in nutritional benefits and has the potential to help almost every function our body carries out.
While there may have been few modern studies on human subjects, Pine Pollen has documented health benefits in Traditional Chinese Medicine that date back thousands of years. Scientists have conducted animal studies with Pine Pollen and have found that Pine Pollen helps with fatigue, decreases harmful effects of stress, helps protect the liver from chemical stressors like alcohol, supports healthy cholesterol levels, decreases pain sensitivity, AND helps with inflammation.
With a modest price tag for a month's supply, I highly recommend trying Pine Pollen for yourself and seeing what benefits you start to notice first!
