Bee Pollen Benefits Your Daily Health
Enjoy increased energy all day long!
Bee pollen benefits your every day health in several ways. In addition to increased energy bee pollen will boost your athletic performance and reduce recovery time after you workout. Many athletes use bee pollen to improve their strength, endurance and stamina.
Bee pollen will also help balance your hormones. It will raise low hormone levels and reduce over active ones.
The many benefits of bee pollen include its ability to strengthen the immune system. I suggest you take bee pollen at the first signs of a cold. If you stick with it and take bee pollen as needed, the duration of the cold will be shortened as well as its severity reduced. Bee pollen will also reduce nasal congestion and help you to breathe more normally.
Bee pollen is a nutrient rich super food! It contains 40% protein. It has more protein by weight than any animal source. It also contains amino acids, vitamins, including B-complex, and folic acid.
You may prefer natural raw bee pollen. In contrast to bee pollen products that have been encapsulated or made into tablets, raw bee pollen is unprocessed. It comes in granules taken directly from the bee hive. You will find most raw bee pollen in the refrigerated section of your local health store.

Bee Pollen Side Effects
Most people will not have any adverse reaction to taking bee pollen. You should be aware, however, of the possible bee pollen side effects. The individuals who should not take bee pollen are those who are allergic to bee stings. Also, women who are pregnant or nursing should not take bee pollen without the consent of their doctor.
Some people may suffer one or more of the following bee pollen side effects:
- Nausea or upset stomach
- Feeling of tightness in the chest or throat
- Difficulty breathing or wheezing
- Skin rash or hives
- Itchy throat
- Diarrhea or gastrointestinal upset
If any of the above side effects occur stop taking the bee pollen until the symptoms clear. It is recommended that you cut your dosage in half when you begin taking bee pollen again. Resume a full dosage if the side effects do not return.
Again, only a small percentage of people ever have a negative reaction to bee pollen or other bee products. If you are concerned that you might be allergic to bee pollen start with a small amount first and wait to see if you have any negative reactions before taking the recommended dosage.
Bee Pollen Research
There is a large volume of anecdotal evidence supporting the health benefits of bee pollen. In addition to the personal experiences of many bee pollen users there is a growing body of scientific evidence supporting the claim that bee pollen benefits the body in specific ways. Although there is not any conclusive scientific evidence of the health benefits of bee pollen there have been a number of promising research studies completed.
Many of these bee pollen studies have shown positive results. The researchers almost invariably comment in their reports that additional research needs to be done. We concur with this conclusion. We welcome additional research on bee pollen and honey as well as other natural health products.
I find bee pollen benefits me when I am driving long distances. If I take two capsules before I start driving it keeps me more alert while I am on the road. After several hours on the road, I will often take two more if I start to get drowsy.
If I take bee pollen right before I go to bed, it helps me to sleep better and it is easier for me to get up in the morning. My only caution is to be careful that you don't take the bee pollen more than a thirty minutes before you go to bed. If you do, you may have trouble falling asleep.
Personally, I like to take bee pollen in capsules rather than in pill form. I just chew up the capsules so that the bee pollen goes to work in my system faster. I feel the bee pollen clearing my nose and sinuses within minutes after taking it.
The bee product that I recommend is called Total Bee Plus! My daughter has successfully used this product for years.
In addition to bee pollen each capsule contains bee propolis, royal jelly and organic honey! This unique formula is a powerful combination of natural bee products.
Total Bee Plus is relatively inexpensive. They also offer quantity discounts when you purchase more than one bottle.
