Pine Pollen Love

Pine Pollen ✨ is one superfood we love at Health Essentials. It’s packed with amino acids, enzymes, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals and has an effect on hormone balance, aging, improving immune function and testosterone levels ( a common misconception is that women don’t benefit from pine pollen but it’s ability to balance hormones can increase libido and it is a natural source of phenylalanine which stimulates dopamine production). Consumption of this amazing pollen also has a positive effect on neurotransmitters, hooray for better brain function
