Psoriasis is a chronic (long-lasting) inflammatory skin condition that is partly caused by an overactive immune system. The exact cause of psoriasis is unknown. However, it is clear that the immune system, environmental factors, and family history can play a significant role in triggering this condition.
The immune system is somehow a trigger, which can cause a series of consequences in the future, including inflammation and acceleration of skin cell growth. Instead of falling off (shedding), the cells pile up on the surface of the skin, forming psoriasis plaques. This action causes the skin cell growth up to 10 times faster than normal. Instead of shedding, these skin cells pile up on the surface and form red patches, or lesions, called plaques.
Psoriasis is characterized by sudden or gradual development of reddened, thick, itchy patches of silvery scales (raised layers of dead skin flakes) that cause mild to intense itching, usually in the elbows, knees, scalp, hands, trunk and/or nails.

Bee pollen is used in treating psoriasis because it contains vitamins and minerals which are important for a skin quality and texture. Enzymes of bee pollen are important for normal liver functioning, which is very important with the patients with psoriasis because in large number of cases there is also a metabolic syndrome.
