If a superfood is doing pretty much anything essential in the wilds of the world – you bet we ARE going to hear about it and share it back with you! So pssst, hey Canada, did you know there’s a powerful superfood growing in our very own forests? That’s right – pine pollen!
There’s no need to apologize if you haven’t yet come to know about pine pollen and it’s beneficial qualities. That’s what 911healty is here for and we’re ready to walk you through this natural Canadian plant-powered wonder!
About Pine Pollen
Different types of pollens have long (like 2,000 years long) been used for a range of health benefits, and pine pollen is not only a potent source of natural phytoandrogens but also bursting with other phytonutrients, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, fatty and amino acids. As a nutrient-rich food with brassinosteroids (plant hormones) that include testosterone and androstenedione, pine pollen boasts a wild, natural alternative to prescription or synthetic hormone therapies.
Because androgens drop in our systems as we age, having a good source of phytoandrogens is essential in longevity and health; the rebuilding of our tissues is an anabolic activity, our bodies need things like pine pollen to aid in the repair and regeneration of our bones, muscles, organs, brain and cardiovascular system.
If that wasn’t enough for you, pine pollen also contains phenylalanine and natural DHEA which both impact the effects of stress and improve mood. Together they combine forces to battle and give you relief from negative remnants of stress in your daily life.

Pine pollen benefits for men
Does pine pollen increase testosterone? Whether pine pollen increases testosterone levels is one of the most frequently asked questions from customers, and the simple answer is yes.
Low testosterone is often linked to several health conditions, including diabetes, obesity and even heart disease. By establishing a healthy level of testosterone in the body, through ingesting pine pollen powder, you may lower the chance of developing these health issues in the future.
Pine pollen contains several Phytoandrogens including androsterone, androstenedione and dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), along with adaptogenic compounds, gibberellins and brassinosteroids. All of these work together to increase testosterone levels and maintain the correct balance of oestrogen to testosterone.
Essentially, pine pollen supplements provide a natural way to balance your hormones and lower your risk of developing numerous health conditions at the same time.
Did you know that small levels of testosterone have been found in the pollen of Scots Pine (Pinus Sylvestris)? It’s estimated that 10g of pine pollen contains around 0.8mg of testosterone.
Pine pollen benefits for women
It’s not just men who can enjoy pine pollen benefits. We recommend pine pollen for women too, particularly if they are experiencing high levels of oestrogen.
Pine pollen can restore the balance of hormones in the female body, helping to correct a deficiency in testosterone and maintain a healthy level of oestrogen. This can lead to improved libido and sex drive, increased strength and better mental health.
Natural post workout supplement
Pine pollen is a complete protein and an effective post workout supplement. It contains over 20 amino acids, including isoleucine, known to increase athletic endurance and assist in muscle synthesis and repair.
Anti-inflammatory benefits of pine pollen
Pine pollen extract boasts excellent anti-inflammatory properties that can help treat chronic inflammatory diseases like Arthritis.
One study looked at the effect of pine pollen on Arthritis in mice . Results showed that after 49 day’s treatment with pine pollen, the symptoms of Arthritis had lowered. Additionally, inflammation was dramatically reduced.
But you don’t need to have a chronic illness to benefit from taking pine pollen. It can also provide quick relief from muscle aches. If you enjoy exercising, you’ll find pine pollen tinctures extremely effective in reducing post-work inflammation and assisting recovery.
Pine pollen’s ability to promote rapid growth, rejuvenation and healing in humans makes complete sense when you go back to its roots. It’s pollen from trees – a form of seed, and like all seeds, it contains essential nutrients for growth, rejuvenation and healing. Without those nutrients, pine trees wouldn’t grow so tall or live for hundreds of years.
