Bee Pollen Information

 

A slightly heaped teaspoon of bee pollen granules = 5 grams or 5000 mg = 10 of our Whole Grain Bee Pollen Capsules.

Bee Pollen is produced by flowers and flowering fruit trees.  This pollen is collected by bees and stored in their hives.   Bees then mix the pollen with nectar and enzymes from their saliva to form a granule, called "Bee Pollen".  

Bee Pollen is rich in protein, amino acids, antioxidents and lecithin. Lecithin is a fat emulsifier that removes fat from the body and blood stream (lowering cholesterol) and also increases your metabolism (helps with weight loss and energy).                                                                                                                    

Bee Pollen is a raw food known as Natures Perfect Food because of its many health benefits such as: antioxidant properties, anti-aging properties, could help relieve allergy symptoms, improve energy and endurance, aid in digestion and weight loss. It's known as a natural antibiotic and has helped to combat osteoporosis.  Studies show that bee pollen has a positive effect on cervical, colon and breast cancer. 

Adding Bee Pollen to your daily regimen could help with the following:   Asthma, Capillary weakness, Chronic fatigue, Support immune system, Impotence, Infertility, Kidney disorders, Menopausal symptoms, Pain management, Prostate diseases and Ulcers.   


 I am allergic to bees – should I take these bee products?

When someone is allergic to bee stings, they are allergic to bee venom.  Bee Pollen is produced by flowers and flowering fruit trees, collected by bees who mix the pollen with nectar and enzymes from their saliva to form a granule, called "Bee Pollen".    Therefore, there isn't be any bee venom in the pollen.  But, for safety measures, it is written on the label that if you have bee allergies not to take bee pollen. 

What is recommended from the manufacturer of our bee pollen is to open a capsule, place a granule or two on the tongue and see if you have a reaction.  Be prepared though in case you do have a reaction.  Look for signs of the supplement not agreeing with you like itchy rash, hives or stomach cramps. Most importantly, consult a doctor before taking bee product supplements if you are allergic to bee stings.

Another thing to remember when taking bee pollen for the first time is to gradually introduce it to your body. You can open a capsule and pour half the contents into a cool drink or sprinkle it on yogurt, ice cream etc...  (anything cool is good to take it with, not something hot.  Heat kills the live enzymes in the bee pollen which takes away its nutrition.)  Do this for a few days then take a full capsule for a few days etc..
