I am Buzzing about ‘Bee Pollen’

By  |  5 Comments

I have been interested in adding ‘Bee Pollen’ into my diet, I have done so much research on this, so I decided to introduce this, into my daily diet.


Bee Pollen is a COMPLETE superfood, that people started to use, as far back as the Roman Greek period, the pollen is turned into small granules by the working honeybee, its packed to the max with vitamins & minerals, it is more rich in proteins than any animal source, It contains more amino acids than beef, eggs, or cheese of equal weight!
Sounds good so far doesn’t it!
I have found that there are FIVE major health benefits of introducing bee pollen into your every day life, check these out below;

1. Energy Enhancer – The range of nutrients found within bee pollen makes it a great natural energizer.
The carbohydrates, protein and B vitamins can help keep you going all day by enhancing stamina and fighting off fatigue.

2. Infertility Problems – Bee pollen stimulates and restores ovarian function, therefore may be used to assist in accelerating pregnancy.

3. Skin Soother – Bee pollen is often used in topical products that aim to treat inflammatory conditions and common skin irritations like psoriasis or eczema. The amino acids and vitamins protect the skin and aid the regeneration of cells

4. Treating Allergies – Pollen reduces the presence of histamine, ameliorating many allergies.
A Dr by the name of Leo Conway, M.D of Denver Colorado, reported that 94 percent of his patients were completely free from allergy symptoms once treated with oral feeding of pollen. EVERYTHING from asthma to allergies to sinus problems were cleared, confirming that bee pollen is wonderfully effective against a wide range of respiratory diseases.

5. Digestive System – In addition to healthful vitamins, minerals and protein, bee pollen contains enzymes that can aid in digestion. Enzymes assist your body in getting all the nutrients you need from the food that you eat.

There are many many more benefits of this, these are the ones that stood out for me.
If you have a specific aliment do the research, It is always important to do your own research when it comes to your health and well being.

When it comes to dosage it is important to start with one granule the first day.
Yes, one super tiny granule, this is important to make sure you don’t have an allergic reaction.
You then double the dose until you work up to a teaspoon. So two granules on day two, four granules on day three, and so on.
I will be consuming one teaspoon per day, either mixed into a smoothie, or into my breakfast creations.

I bought my Bee Pollen from a stand called Asala which is opposite Carrefour in Villaggio Mall, it cost me QR 100.00.

Just a note, as with all my posts, I do advise you check with your DR before introducing anything like this into your diet, I am not a health professional, I am just exploring what is out there, and what can possibly help maintain a healthy clean lifestyle.

Would you consider introducing this into your daily diet?
