Like other bee products, bee pollen has anti-microbial properties as well as an anti-biotic, anti-viral, antiseptic, and anti-fundal properties.

Useful for combating fatigue, depression, cancer, stimulating the reproductive ststem for males and females and eases digestive and colon disorders. It also helps people with allergies because it strengthens the immune system.

Choosing Bee Pollen:
Bee Pollen should not form clumps and should be stored in a tighlty sealed container and refrigerated. Like other bee products, you should only choose locally produced bee pollen, this is especially important for anti-allergenic properties.

Heat destroys bee pollen’s vital enzyme activity and lowers the nutrient value so it is not recommended for teas or cooking. Instead try adding granules to yogurt or cereal, or mix with cinnamon and add to applesauce.
