Flower pollen that bees collect for food, plus the bees’ saliva that holds the pollen together in clumps, is harvested from hives and processed into commercially available capsules, tablets, and granules. Bee pollen contains numerous vitamins and minerals including Vitamins A, B, C, D, E, and K, as well as thiamin, calcium, potassium, zinc, and magnesium. It also contains proteins, amino acids, essential oils, flavonoids, and carotenoids, all vital in the body’s maintenance of energy and health.

With its many nutrients, bee pollen helps stimulate the body’s metabolism and the growth of healthy cells. It therefore helps combat stress, improve physical and mental alertness, and even slows down aging.

Bee pollen is now a suggested natural remedy for circulatory problems, anemia, fatigue, constipation, and liver disorders.

Here are some ways to use bee pollen as a natural remedy:
(Always check with your doctor before taking bee pollen.)

To promote wellness and strength, esp. for the elderly and in times of stress: Mix 1 oz of bee pollen with 1/4 lb of honey, 1 oz of brewer’s yeast and 1/2 oz of royal jelly. Take 1 tbsp of the mixture daily.

To improve metabolism, restore appetite, and fight general weakness and anemia: Take bee pollen in commercially available forms, in recommended dosages. Some bee pollen preparations are combined with other beneficial bee products such as honey, propolis, and royal jelly.
