It contains polar lipids, monoglycerides, diglycerides, triglycerides, free fatty acids (palmitic, stearic, oleic, linoleic, linolenic), hydrocarbons and associated alcohols, sterols, terpenes and nucleic acids. The enzymes contained in the pollen are: 24 oxidoreductases, 21 transferases, 33 hydrolases, 11 lyases, 5 isomerases, 3 ligases and others. In addition to being an irreplaceable source of natural proteins, each grain of pollen is a concentrated complex of nutrients with enormous healing properties thanks to its components.
In the pollen almost all the vitamins have been identified. It is particularly rich in carotene, it is also very rich in rutin or vitamin P, which strengthens and enlarges the capillaries, veins and arteries, and reverses the hardening of the latter. It helps the circulatory system in general and therefore is very important for the cardiovascular system, especially after 40 years. It contains at least 11 active carotenoids of 5-9 mg per 100 g serving our system to convert vitamin A. It also has more than 8 flavonoids as well as growth regulators such as auxins,
Gibberellins, kinins and, in addition, growth inhibitors. The efficient components of pollen, that is, those that determine their biological activity (of interest in medicine) are: nucleic acids; Vitamins A, C, E and B; Magnesium and calcium microelements, enzymes and bioactive substances.
