Bee Pollen??

Recommended Posts

Has anyone used bee pollen? Someone at work said it helps with energy and memory, both of which I could use help with. Has it worked for any of you?

i use bee pollen.

 

i put it in oatmeal in the morning along with 1 TBS ground flaxseed, 1TBS raw wheat germ, some cinnamon and a splash of soy or rice milk.

 

bee pollen is notorious for energy, stamina and helping you to feel full along with many, many other benefits. the taste is a little weird at first but once you get used to it, no big deal.

 

also, i know some people that will eat 1 TBS an hour or 2 before a party or big dinner to push off hunger and not eat as much!

Hmmm, very interesting. My mom used to get local honey & honey comb for me to eat when I was younger because it helped with my horrible allergies. I didn't know about the pollen stuff!

Just reviving this thread because I recently started taking local bee pollen for allergies. I have terrible allergies and claritin, zyrtec, the generics were not working at all. I went to an acupuncturist (we have two naturopath schools here and I went to one where they only charge $10 for group acupuncture, woo hoo!) and she had me start taking local bee pollen, an herb she prescribed me and gave me acupuncture. Not to sound infomercial but a week and a half later I have no allergy symptoms and am off the claritin. (still getting acupuncture once a week)

 

Sooo, to speak to the energy and hunger thing-- it does give you energy! I never heard about the hunger thing but i have not been hungry at all the past few days and now it makes sense!!

 

To rid allergies you need to take bee pollen that is collected in the area you live in. I got it from the local Farmer's Market. It was $9 for a ziploc bag size of it. Got it a week and a half ago and still have lots left. i am gettiing used to the taste and usually have it with yogurt or oatmeal. I highly recommend it! Even if it doesn't do anything positive for you, it is harmless.
