What Factors need to be Considered for Pine Pollen Dosage?
In modern life, pine pollen as a natural resource to nourish the body, support the brain development, promote the children growth, help various diseases and be applied in cosmetics; it has been highly recognized in the worldwide with regards to its rich and balanced nutrition. However there isn’t a unified standard for the dosage when pine pollen is as a health-care ingredient, so what is supposed to be considered to decide the dosage?

Intention/purpose should be firstly considered. Pine pollen is rich in nutrition and its functions mainly divided into nutrition supplement and medical application. However two functions are overlapped in some ways because there is no clear boundary. Based on its functions, pine pollen dosage is mainly for two intentions: one is to tonify and build the body including skin care; the other is to treat or alleviate some diseases. Generally speaking, dosage as a medicine would be larger than for general health preservation.

Secondly, compositions of pine pollen also need to be a reference. The compositions of pine pollen is complicated, it is not easy and accurate to measure its dosage because human body may have a certain quantity demand for one specific composition but still this could be a reference. For example, we can compare the daily intake of 7 essential amino acids for human body with the concentration/content of these amino acids in pine pollen to determine a dosage accordingly.

And in below sheet, we double the daily required amount of 7 essential amino acids as the intake amount and regard the concentration/content of lysine and valine which have the least existence in pine pollen as the basis. Then we could come out a conclusion that intake of 24 grams pine pollen could meet with daily required amount of essential amino acids.
