Raw honey is amazing and if you are familiar with it then you know how truly beneficial it is. Any and all things bee related tend to be great for us that being everything from the honey to the pollen itself.
Apitherapy, in case you aren’t aware, is a type of alternative medicine that uses bee products like pollen, honey, venom, and royal jelly to help people. Bee pollen actually contains almost all of the nutrients we need in order to thrive. When harvesting this pollen beekeepers attach a pollen trap in the doorway of the hive and it removes the pollen from their legs as they enter and is completely harmless.
Of course, they have to be careful and only collect small amounts as to make sure the bees still have their food source. One bee colony can produce about two to fifteen pounds of pollen each year. You can buy bee pollen in many different forms ranging from fresh to dehydrated. This amazing bee pollen contains over two hundred and fifty substances including things like amino acids, vitamins, and micronutrients.
If you are not already taking part in the ingestion of bee pollen you definitely should add it to your diet. The anti-inflammatory effects alone from bee pollen have even been compared to NSAID drugs. When partnered with a healthy diet and exercise there is nothing bee pollen cannot do.
Ingesting bee pollen will also give you a boost when it comes to energy, improve your immune system, and get rid of any allergy issues you may be dealing with. There is literally almost no downside to eating a teaspoon of bee pollen each day. If you want to give it a try start off with one or two granules and work your way up from there. (If you notice any sort of reaction of course stop and consult your doctor as you may be allergic.)
Eventually, you will be ingesting one to two teaspoons a day and reaping all the benefits of this ‘superfood.’ Are you going to be giving bee pollen a try or do you already consume it? What do you think about this?
