Product Information

The timeframe for experiencing results with pine pollen can vary from person to person as everyone's body absorbs and reacts to supplements differently. For optimal results, we recommend consistent use three times a day for at least three months.

We offer pine pollen in two forms: liquid extract and powder. Here's a guide for each:

  • Liquid extract: Take it sublingually. This means placing a few drops under your tongue and holding for at least 30 seconds before swallowing. Since the extract can be strong, start slow with a few drops to test it out. If the taste is too strong, mix it with a tablespoon or small glass of water or fruit juice.
  • Powder: Mix the powder into your favourite drinks or food. Feel free to experiment and find what works best for you!

The recommended dosage is:

  • Powder: ½ teaspoon, 1-3 times a day.
  • Liquid Extract: 1-3 times a day, with a maximum of 5 times.
    - Men: 1-1.5 ml (use the provided dropper, designed for 1ml)
    - Women: 0.25 ml (use the provided dropper)

The recommended dosages are a starting point, as individual responses can vary. Pay attention to your body and adjust the amount as needed. Start with a lower dose and increase gradually if you feel comfortable. Discontinue use if you experience any discomfort.

That tingling or slight burning under your tongue is a sign that the pine pollen extract is working and is being absorbed properly. If the taste is too strong or the tingling becomes uncomfortable, feel free to mix the extract with a tablespoon or small glass of water or fruit juice.

We are currently securing funding for a clinical trial to explore the benefits of our specific pine pollen product.
In the meantime, there's a wealth of existing research on pine pollen's potential. Over 300 scientific papers document its possible health properties. Additionally, traditional practices in Japan, Korea, and China have used pine pollen for millennia with reported benefits.

Individuals with pollen allergies may potentially react to pine pollen, as pine pollen differs from the pollen found in grasses, weeds, or flowers. If you're aware of having a pollen allergy, we recommend consulting with your healthcare professional before introducing pine pollen into your routine.

While we don't currently offer dedicated testers or sample packs, many customers start their Bio Gold experience with our small bottle of liquid extract. This provides a good amount to experience the potential benefits of pine pollen and allows you to adjust the dosage based on your needs.

It depends on how often you take it (typically 1-3 times daily). Here's a general idea:

  • Small bottle: 3-4 weeks
  • Regular bottle: 1-2 months
  • Large bottle: 2-4 months

Tip: The large bottle offers the best value per millilitre.

Yes, pine pollen absolutely works! We recommend checking out our testimonials and reviews from real Kiwis who have incorporated pine pollen into their wellness routines at

The liquid extract (tincture) is made with the following ingredients:

  • Pine pollen (harvested in New Zealand)
  • Organic, food-grade glycerine (derived from coconut)
  • Organic food-grade ethanol
  • New Zealand spring water

There isn't a specific best time, however, taking it before exercise (walking, gym, sports) might improve absorption and benefits due to increased blood flow. You can also take it at other times for a general boost, and unlike caffeine, it's safe for evening use as well. Feel free to experiment and see what works best for you.

Pine pollen is the fine, yellow powder released by pine trees in spring. It plays a part in the tree's reproduction and comes from the male pine cones (called catkins). Interestingly, pine pollen has been used in traditional medicine for over 3,000 years in places like China, South Korea, and Japan.

Our pine pollen is carefully harvested from trees located south of Kaikōura. This pristine land is owned and operated by Ngāi Tahu Forestry, ensuring a thoughtful and sustainable approach to the entire process.

We source our pine pollen from a special selection of coastal Pinus radiata trees in New Zealand. These trees are chosen for their unique genetic and nutritional profile, which has been analysed by scientists. We've spent years carefully assessing the pollen's biochemistry in the lab to ensure we're creating the purest, safest, and most effective products possible.

Pine pollen has a long history of use as a superfood and traditional Chinese herbal remedy. It's packed with nutrients like amino acids, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

It's important to note that most research has focused on other pine species, not the Pinus radiata we use in New Zealand. So, we can't make specific health claims about our products. However, some potential benefits based on current research include:

  • Supporting a healthy immune system
  • Balancing the hormonal system
  • Increasing energy levels
  • Supporting a healthy libido
  • Providing excellent nutritional value

Traditional Chinese medicine associates pine pollen with:

  • Boosting vital energy (Qi)
  • Supporting key organs like the heart, spleen, lungs, kidneys, and liver
  • Improving lung function and promoting healthy skin
  • Supporting the endocrine system, brain, bones, and hair
  • Stimulating the liver and regulating bile production
  • Enhancing cardiovascular health and blood quality
  • Nourishing muscles and aiding metabolism

Our pine pollen comes in two forms: powder and liquid tincture (Supercharge®).

The liquid tincture, Supercharge®, is a concentrated pine pollen extract. It's designed specifically for those looking to improve libido, sports performance, and overall male vitality. It's generally recommended for men over 25 and not advised for pregnant or nursing women, or anyone under 25 years old.

The powder, on the other hand, is more versatile and suitable for most people. It offers a wider range of potential health benefits and can be easily mixed into food or drinks.

No, collecting pine pollen doesn't affect bees. Pine trees are wind-pollinated, meaning they rely on the wind to spread their pollen, not bees. Bees focus on collecting pollen from flowers and plants that rely on insects for pollination. Interestingly, bees do collect pine sap, which they use to build their hives.

We can't disclose the exact formula for our tincture, but we can assure you it's comparable in strength to common 1:3 tinctures. This means each serving delivers a potent and effective dose of pine pollen.

The shelf life depends on the format:

  • Liquid Tincture: Being an alcohol-based tincture, it can last up to 1 year if stored properly. For optimal shelf life, keep it in a cool, dark place or refrigerate it.
  • Powder:Store it in the fridge or freezer for the best quality. It can also be kept at room temperature of up to 24 degrees for up to 3 months.

Natural variations can occur between batches of our liquid pine pollen tincture due to the harvesting and production process. These variations are influenced by natural factors and are entirely expected in natural products.

The most common appearance is clear. We remove most of the pollen sediment during extraction, but some might remain suspended and settle later. A more yellow colour simply means there's more sediment, while clearer means less. This visual difference doesn't affect the potency of the tincture.

The pollen grains themselves don't contribute much after the extraction process. All the beneficial compounds are already dissolved in the liquid, which is why it's usually clear. The amount of sediment that settles in each bottle can vary naturally, but it doesn't impact the extract's strength. Rest assured, all the good stuff is in the liquid, and every batch undergoes quality control to meet our standards.

Pine pollen powder contains a number of different naturally occurring plant-based phytoandrogens, such as testosterone. Unfortunately we are currently unable to give an exact quantified measure of testosterone per ml of our products, and even if we did, it would only explain part of pine pollen’s androgenic actions, which are attributed to not only the phytotestosterone, but also the other 200+ bioactive natural compounds present.

No, we don't crack the cell walls of our pine pollen. There's debate within the pine pollen community about the supposed benefits of cracking cell walls. Here's why we choose not to:

  • Nutrient Accessibility: Pine pollen cell walls are naturally quite fragile, and our bodies can break them down during digestion. The digestive system is designed to handle extracting nutrients from various foods, even those with tougher cell walls.
  • Nutrient Stability: The nutrients within pine pollen cells are stable and can be effectively absorbed by the body even without cracking. Cracking might not necessarily improve nutrient bioavailability.
  • Oxidation Risk: Cracking the cell walls exposes the pollen's interior to oxygen, which can lead to oxidation. Oxidation can degrade the quality of certain nutrients, reducing their effectiveness.
  • Limited Scientific Evidence: While some believe cracking enhances benefits, there's limited scientific research to support this claim. More studies are needed to determine its necessity and effectiveness.
  • Natural Digestion: The human digestive system is well-equipped to break down various foods, including those with tougher structures. Consuming pine pollen in its natural state likely allows for effective digestion and nutrient absorption.

No evidence suggests people become desensitised to pine pollen supplements. In fact, many long-term customers report consistent benefits over several years.

It's important to remember that individual responses to supplements can vary depending on health, lifestyle, and overall well-being. Our focus is on creating well-tolerated products, and we're happy with the positive feedback we receive from customers.

It depends on your fasting goals. Some fasting routines are strict and avoid any calorie intake or supplements. Others allow certain supplements that don't break the fast.

Since pine pollen contains nutrients, it technically could break a strict fast. However, some people find it beneficial and compatible with their fasting routine. Our founder even uses pine pollen while fasting and finds it helpful.

There's limited scientific evidence directly linking pine pollen to increased sperm count or improved fertility in humans. While traditional practices and some testimonials suggest potential benefits, more research is needed for confirmation.

Pine pollen does contain various nutrients and may offer some hormonal support, which could theoretically contribute to reproductive health. However, for fertility concerns, consulting a healthcare professional is crucial. They can provide personalised advice and explore treatment options based on your specific situation.

Pine Pollen Effects On Women

There's limited scientific research on whether pine pollen directly increases female libido. While some people report positive experiences, more studies are needed to confirm its effectiveness.
Pine pollen does contain various nutrients, including phytoandrogens, which are similar to testosterone. These might influence hormonal balance and overall well-being, potentially impacting libido. However, individual responses to supplements can vary greatly. If you're considering pine pollen for libido support, it's best to consult a healthcare professional. They can provide personalised advice based on your health and specific needs.

Our Supercharge® Liquid Extract is specifically formulated for men over 25 years old. While some women report positive effects like increased energy and menopausal symptom relief at a starting dose of 0.25ml, we generally recommend our pine pollen powder for women of all ages. The powder offers a wider range of potential benefits and is more versatile for consumption.

Both our powder and liquid extract can be helpful for menopausal women, but they cater to slightly different needs:

Liquid Extract (Supercharge®): This concentrated formula is designed for men, but some women report positive effects like increased energy and relief from menopausal symptoms when taken at a lower dose (0.25ml daily). It might be a good choice if you're seeking a stronger boost and alleviation of menopausal discomforts.

Powder: The pine pollen powder offers a gentler approach suitable for women of all ages. It boasts a wider range of potential benefits and can be easily incorporated into your diet. This versatility makes it a good option for overall hormonal balance and full-body health during menopause.

Pine pollen is often promoted for its potential health benefits, although scientific research on its effects in women is limited. However, some anecdotal claims suggest it may offer several potential benefits:

Nutrient Content: Pine pollen is rich in various nutrients, including vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and antioxidants, which can contribute to overall well-being.

Phytoandrogens: Pine pollen contains phytoandrogens, plant-based compounds that may help balance hormone levels in both men and women.

Adaptogenic Properties: As an adaptogen, pine pollen may help the body adapt to stress and promote resilience, which can be beneficial for women dealing with stress-related issues.

Energy and Vitality: Some users report increased energy levels and a sense of vitality when taking pine pollen, potentially supporting energy and stamina in women.

Skin Health: The antioxidants in pine pollen may contribute to skin health by combating oxidative stress and supporting a healthy complexion.

Individual responses may vary, so it's advisable to consult with a healthcare professional for personalised advice based on your health and specific needs.

Pine pollen contains phytoandrogens, plant-based compounds that resemble human hormones, including oestrogen. Some people believe these phytoandrogens may help balance hormone levels, including oestrogen, in both men and women. However, scientific research on the specific effects of pine pollen on oestrogen levels in women is limited. It's advisable to consult with a healthcare professional before using pine pollen or any other supplement to address hormonal concerns. They can provide personalised advice based on your health history, current medications, and individual needs.

Medical Advice

While our pine pollen products offer natural health benefits, we are not medical professionals and cannot advise on how they might interact with your specific medication. We recommend consulting with your healthcare provider before starting any new supplement regimen. They can provide personalised advice based on your medical history and current medications to ensure your safety and well-being.

Generally, most people don't experience side effects when incorporating pine pollen into their routine. However, it's essential to consider a few factors. Pine pollen may not be suitable for certain individuals, including pregnant or nursing women, and those with a pine allergy.
Additionally, our liquid extract is recommended for individuals aged 25 and above. It's advisable to check with a healthcare professional before use and if you experience any negative symptoms. Please also carefully read and follow all instructions on the bottle.
