Dia internacional do Pólen
(Pollen). Pollen, often carried by the bees. They transport it from flower to flower, and hereby contribute to the multiplication of plants. For a group of people, pollen is a curse: they are allergic to it. In spring and early summer, when numerous plants and trees are flowering, many suffer some kind of pollen allergy. Pollen is not only the base for honey, but it is also found in various extracts, against prostate problems and hair loss, among others. Indeed, it seems to sort some effect to male hormones. IT is claimed that one of the bee products, propolis, may have medicinal, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal effects. The bees produce propolis for the construction of the honeycomb walls. Propolis, a resin-like product with a bitter taste, is popular among Brazilians. With the appearance of the first symptoms of a cold or fever, propolis is used.
