Can Flower Pollen Extend Your Life? Studies of Swedish Diet Suggests It Might

The Swedish diet contains many of the same nutrients found in flower pollen extract. The Swedes have broken away from traditional diets throughout much of the world by rejecting the idea that low-fat foods make up a healthy diet.

The Swedish Council on Health Technology Assessment recommended a low-carbohydrate diet over a low-fat diet for its dietary guidelines after reviewing some 16,000 studies published through 2013.

A low-carb diet limits carbohydrates, such as breads, pasta and potatoes. It emphasizes foods high in protein and fat, such as dairy products, grains, fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, beans, and legumes.

Flower pollen, which contains protein for energy-boosting effects and antioxidant-rich protection, also remains a popular supplement with the Swedish population.

The low-carb diet combined with flower pollen extract could enhance a healthy lifestyle for an extended life, research has shown. The Swedish health council concluded the low-carb, high-fat diet is more effective than conventional diets that restrict fat.

"Butter, olive oil, heavy cream, and bacon are not harmful foods," reports Swedish doctor Andreas Eenfeldt in translating the council's findings for DietDoctor.com.

"Fat is the best thing for those who want to lose weight. And there are no connections between a high fat intake and cardiovascular disease," Dr. Eenfeldt adds.

A low-carbohydrate diet increases high-density lipoprotein, or HDL, cholesterol, the so-called "good" cholesterol, according to the council. HDL works to clear away excess cholesterol in the blood. The diet has no adverse effects on low-density lipoprotein, or LDL, cholesterol, the "bad" cholesterol that contributes to clogging the arteries.

The Swedish diet also reduces levels of triglycerides, fats in the blood, leading to improved glucose levels to help combat diabetes and obesity.

Flower pollen extract features an array of vitamins found in a low-carb diet. They include vitamin A, found in vegetables, egg yolk, milk and other dairy products. Vitamin D is found in fish liver oils. Vitamin E, which also acts as an antioxidant, is found in vegetable oils, butter and eggs.

Along with its high amount of vitamins, flower pollen extract is a rich source of minerals, enzymes, plant sterols and protein-boosting amino acids.

The antioxidants in flower pollen extract come from the concentrated vitamins and minerals to improve immune function. Flower pollen extract supplements are ideal for people with nutritional deficiencies to quickly replenish lost nutrients.

The similarities between the nutrients in flower pollen extract and the Swedish diet could provide optimal health for an extended life.
