3.2.5. Manganese


As an important trace element in the human organism, manganese is mostly present in the muscles, liver, kidneys, and brain.

The deficiency of manganese in children leads to the retention of height, to deformation of the skeleton, to rickets and ataxia, and in adults causes anorexia, weight reduction, and sexual disorders. With a deficiency of manganese in pregnant women, the development of the fetus is disrupted.

Microelements usually exist in compound forms when involved in complex physiological, biological, and pathological processes. In addition to the activation of the necessary enzymes, manganese also contributes to the absorption of vitamin B. In 100 g of pine pollen contained 8.74 mg of manganese.


3.1.1. Molybdenum

Molybdenum plays an important role, despite its insignificant amount in the body, and is one of the vital microelements. Molybdenum has been shown to have a significant effect on stimulating growth and on protecting the cardiovascular system. The myocardium is high in molybdenum, which supports the metabolism of myocardial energy. The less the content of molybdenum in the myocardium, the more damage there is in it.

Molybdenum also plays a special role in the prevention of caries. The low level of molybdenum in children increases the likelihood of caries. Increasing the ingested amount of molybdenum by children suffering from caries has a noticeable effect on the prevention of caries, for the strengthening and strength of the teeth.

Another function of molybdenum is the prevention of cancer since the presence of molybdenum blocks the synthesis of one of the powerful carcinogens - nitrosamine. In 100 g of pine pollen contains 0.01 mg molybdenum.


Table 3-5 below shows the content of the various mineral substances in the pollen.

Carbohydrates are compounds consisting of only three chemical elements: carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen. The main biological function of carbohydrates is the release of energy by oxidation to maintain vital activity. This is the main source of energy for the body and for the brain. Carbohydrates are also contained in nerve cells and in the nuclei of cells.


4.1 Starch and Saccharides


People on a diet often avoid carbohydrates, since starch and sugar in them are not good for weight loss. In fact, this is not the case, because the fats burn only in the flame of carbohydrates. In addition, starch and sugar are converted into glucose in the process of food absorption, that is, the familiarity of all of our sugar in the blood, which provides energy to the brain and the nervous system. Carbohydrates contain as much energy as proteins; That's why we need to consume carbohydrates with our daily diet to conserve energy from proteins in order to use them in the most appropriate places. This role of carbohydrates is called protein protection. Proteins are the main constituent substance of tissues and, when necessary, are used to restore tissues. Adequate stock of carbohydrates allows avoiding the consumption of proteins for conversion into energy.

The pollen contains 7% starch and 10% sugars.


4.2 Food Fibres

Dietary fibers are substances that do not decompose from the digestive enzymes of the gastrointestinal tract; Such substances usually include cellulose, hemicellulose, lignin, pectin, agar (polysaccharide derived from red and brown algae).

Physiological functions of dietary fibers include:

  • They are not hygroscopic, do not decompose and are not swallowed, remain longer in the gastrointestinal tract, which shortens the intake of food, affect well the slender body, and soothes the blood sugar level after eating in patients with diabetes;
  • Adsorption, removal of cholesterin, toxic substances in the intestine, carcinogens. Lowering the level of fats in the blood, preventing arteriosclerosis, heart diseases, as well as reducing the degree of systemic damage or local lesions (for example, intestinal) from toxins and carcinogens.
  • They can absorb a lot of water, increase the volume of feces, improve the function of the gastrointestinal tract and prevent constipation.

The main part of cellulose in pollen is the main component of the internal/external walls of microspores. The content is shown in table 3-6.

Fats are one of the three main sources of energy in the body. They are an important constituent of the tissues, providing the necessary for the body fatty acids and helping to absorb and use fat-soluble vitamins.

The fats needed for the body are divided into two types: animal and vegetable. However, the nutritional value is determined not by the source but by the type of fatty acids they contain and the degree of absorption.

The fats contained in the pollen are vegetables. Unlike animal fats, they do not lead to such diseases as obesity, high cholesterol, hypertension or arteriosclerosis, but can strengthen muscles and make them more elastic. The fat content of pollen is shown in Tables 3-7.


Table 3-7

The fatty acid content in pollen






Quantity mg/100 gr.






Unsaturated fatty acids make 72.5% of the total amount of fat in the pine pollen, which makes the nutritional value of these fats higher than other fats and also useful for blood vessels and for the prevention of thromboses. In combination with Vitamin E (in the composition of the pollen) these fats have a double effect to regulate cholesterol levels and preventing cardiovascular diseases.

19 July 2021 What is the relationship between liver function and cholesterol?

High cholesterol can lead to the deposition of fat on the walls of blood vessels, known as plaques. Subsequently, these deposits increase, which is a prerequisite for impaired blood flow through the arteries, as well as blockages of blood vessels - a condition known as atherosclerosis. The end result of this pathological process is the development of cardiovascular diseases, such as high blood pressure, heart attack, and stroke.

26 May 2021 Everything you need to know about vitamin D

Vitamin D belongs to the family of fat-soluble vitamins (along with vitamins A, E, and K). Vitamins from this group are soluble in fat and can be stored in the human body for a long time (usually in the liver). Although often called a vitamin, this trace element is actually a type of steroid hormone. It is produced by cholesterol when your body is exposed to direct sunlight. Therefore, vitamin D is also known as the "sun vitamin".

28 December 2019 Vitamin B6

Vitamin B6 is also known as pyridoxine and is absolutely necessary for many of the metabolism processes. It is closely related to the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats and proteins and appears as a coenzyme in approximately 80 biochemical processes, one of which is the conversion of the powerful neuromediator serotonin from amino-tryptophan. When the level of the serotonin is low, migraines, depression and lowered concentration in children appear. The concentration of vitamin B6 in the brain is approximately 100 times higher than that in the blood. Vitamin B6 is involved in the synthesis of 3 of the most basic neurotransmitters in the brain: serotonin, dopamine and gamma-amino butyric acid (GABA).
