Have you heard about superfood? Low in calories but high in energy provided by nature itself. To this day, scientists don’t know what bee pollen is made of. Apparently, the hard working bees add special substances from nature.

Lithuanians have cultivated flax and hemp since ancient times. Today, the seeds of these plant are especially valued. Flaxseed has a lot of vitamins and omega 3 fatty acids, which are particularly beneficial for the cardiovascular system. Hemp seeds are a veritable source of protein.
