So, can bee pollen supplements help with facilitating muscle growth in athletes? The answer may surprise you — it’s also a politician’s answer as well! The answer is yes and no. Let me explain. Bee pollen by itself has a very impressive nutritional profile. It has every vitamin, mineral, amino acid (the building blocks of protein), enzyme, and nutritional co-factor necessary to sustain life. But, it is not a muscle building supplement per se. A good site on this is http://www.beepollensecrets.com, by the way.
It does help, though, with providing the body the building blocks it needs to synthesize muscle growth. So, the answer can be yes and no as I hope you can see now. The truth is most bodybuilders, as well as non-athletes have a terrible nutritional deficit. The body simply can’t create new muscle if it is lacking in amino acids or protein or the vitamins and nutrients it needs to do its job. Proper diet, with that diet filled with nutrients, is as important as the exercise itself.
