What is Pine Pollen Powder?
Pine pollen powder derives from many types of pine trees, including Masson's pine (Pinus massoniana), Scot’s Pine (Pinus sylvestris), and Chinese red pine (Pinus tabulaeformis). It is known for its androgen & adaptogen effects. Pine pollen is found in a myriad of dietary and health supplements in addition to its isolated form and comes in both powders and tinctures. In its broad history, Pine pollen has been used for various purposes such as slowing aging, reducing fatigue, and boosting testosterone, though some of those uses are anecdotal and require more research to substantiate the claims made. Current research, however, shows that Pine pollen contains protein, fatty acids, carbohydrates, the minerals calcium and magnesium, and both B vitamins and vitamin E. In addition to Pine pollen being nutrient-rich, it also contains antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. The pollen extract has been shown to reduce the levels of molecules associated with inflammation.

How Does Pine Pollen Broken Cell Work?
For the body to absorb Pine Pollen, the hard cell wall needs first to be broken down. It is a source of Phyto-Androgens, a type of plant hormone believed to assist in hormone balance. Phyto-Androgens are believed to promote testosterone levels by binding to testosterone receptors. Pine pollen is also known to have a potential adaptogenic effect, meaning that it may help restore balance to the body. In one study, Pine pollen was investigated for anti-aging effects and researchers found that most of the cultured human cells used were delayed in their replication. While more research is needed, levels of testosterone have been found in Scots pine specifically, which may assist the increase of low testosterone levels.
