Bee pollen is a nutrient-rich food supplement easily added to your regular diet. There is a lot of myth and misinformation about the benefits of bee pollen. It contains 22 known essential nutritional elements which are beneficial to humans.
Bee pollen may be eaten by the teaspoonful as a food supplement. We recommend ½ a teaspoon twice daily. Stir it into yogurt, honey, or applesauce. Sprinkle it on your salad or cereal or take it straight with water or fruit juice. If you are a new pollen consumer, start off with small doses (4-6 pellets) to gauge how your body's system will accept pollen. Doing so will help minimize a reaction to the natural substance. Like any food, there is a small chance of an allergic reaction to the pollen. Speak with your doctor if you have any concerns regarding bee pollen and allergies.
In some cases, consuming bee pollen collected from your immediate area can help alleviate allergy symptoms. Pollen will vary from region to region because the blooms vary. In treating allergies, pollen from your immediate area will be more beneficial than bee pollen from another region.
It is recommended that you store your pollen in an air tight container and preferably in the freezer. Pollen is a "food" that can spoil after a period of time at room temperature, so only keep two weeks supply out at room temperature. Freezing the pollen will keep it fresh and at full strength for up to 2 years. Each ounce (2 tablespoons) of bee pollen contains just 28 calories. 1 pound of bee pollen contains approximately 93 teapoons.
