Bee Pollen Benefits

Buying Guide & Tips

To experience all of the Bee Pollen benefits, make sure the label has Bee Pollen as the only ingredient, as fillers are often used in supplements. Use the granule form rather than the pill form whenever possible as the pills have been processed and may have lost potency.

Look for Bee Pollen that comes from a clean environment, as pollutants can enter into the pollen and thus into you.

Completely "Organic" Bee Pollen may not actually exist, although there are companies that say their pollen is organic. The reason why is because bees will go many miles to collect their pollen and no bee keeper can control where their bees go to get it.

Although most of the pollen used to produce their Bee Pollen may come from an organic crop, they can't guarantee that all of it is organic without performing a chemical analysis of every granule, which of course would be ridiculously impractical.

It is good to know that some of the pollen in a bottle will probably be organic, but realize that not all of it will be.

My Own Experience...

I talk a little below under the heading "Candida" about my personal experience with Bee Pollen while also having an overgrowth of Candida.

For colds, Bee Pollen is absolutely amazing at making it go away FAST! Every time I start feeling the symptoms of a cold coming on (I never get the Flu, but I've heard from others that it has the same effect), I take 2 tablespoons of bee pollen, chew it up (it will get sticky in your mouth), and wash it down with some water.

I do this maybe 3 times a day for a couple of days and the cold never happens!

I do this even with Candida and just deal with a little die off reaction so I don't end up suffering with a cold. It also gives me a boost of energy as well, although I don't use it for that exclusively.


All remedies listed below have the same dosage instructions. To fully experience Bee Pollen benefits, it is best to follow these instructions to be sure you aren't allergic to it and won't have harsh cleansing reactions.

  • Start with 1 granule of fresh raw Bee Pollen and put it under your tongue until it dissolves completely. This will deliver all of the nutrients directly to your blood stream.
  • If you are free of side effects, try 2 or 3 granules and continue this until you reach 1 teaspoon.
  • Take 1 teaspoon daily before breakfast and work your way up to 1 tablespoon as you feel comfortable.

I have seen anecdotal evidence online that says Bee Pollen will kill Candida Albicans. Here is my own experience with this Bee Pollen benefit...

I made no changes to my already strict "Candida Diet" and supplement regimen, other than adding 1 tablespoon of Bee Pollen per day. After two doses, my Candida symptoms flared up horribly as if I had been eating table sugar. After stopping the Bee Pollen, the symptoms went back to their previous levels in 3 days.

This was most likely due to what's called "die off". Candida and other "critters" produce a toxin as they die, and when they do it in large numbers, you will feel it as a flare up of your symptoms.

If you're willing to stick it out, give it a go because it will eventually get better - how long it takes depends on too many factors to really predict. I wasn't willing to tough it out at the time and chose the more gradual route.

Well I started small doses, and that was 6 months ago. I am a fan of craving natural sugar and so this became a habit and I would finish off a 16 oz. …

General Properties:

Bee Pollen has been called the "perfect food" because it is the most nutritionally complete single food source known. In fact, there have been studies that show that a human can live on a diet of bee pollen and water alone. Bee Pollen cannot be recreated in laboratories, so even though we know most of its components, there is something a little mysterious in the way a honey bee makes the bee pollen that makes it the most balanced and complete food source known at this time.

Bee Pollen benefits come from:

  • 22 amino acids
  • 18 vitamins: Provitamin A, B-1 Thiamin, B-2 Riboflavin, B-3 Nancin, B-5, B-6 Pyridoxine, B-12 (cyanocobalamine), Pantothenic acid, Vitamin C, F, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Vitamin H, Vitamin K, Vitamin PP, Folic Acid, Choline, Inositol, Rutin
  • 25 minerals including: Calcium, Phosphorus, Potassium, Iron, Copper, Iodine, Zinc, Sulfur, Sodium, Chlorine, Magnesium, Manganese, Molybdenum, Selenium, Boron, Silica, and Titanium
  • 59 trace elements
  • 11 enzymes or co-enzymes
  • 14 fatty acids
  • 11 carbohydrates
  • 25 to 30% protein (50% more protein than beef)

Possible Side Effects:

The side effects of Bee Pollen are usually due to your immune system overreacting to the new food or are due to cleansing reactions. If you are experiencing headaches, running nose, sneezing, tearing eyes, fever, rashes or other similar reactions, back off on your dosage and build up slowly, or stop taking Bee Pollen altogether.

There are some people who are allergic to it, especially if they are allergic to pollen from flowers or to bee stings. Not all people who are allergic to pollen will be allergic to Bee Pollen however. To discover if you may be allergic, start your dosage with just a few granules and work up to the adult dose of 1 teaspoon daily. (You can actually take as many as a few tablespoons daily if you like.) Some pollen allergies have actually been treated this way with Bee Pollen. Make sure you talk to your health practitioner if you do have these allergies.

Drug Interactions:

At the time of this writing, there are no known drug interactions with Bee Pollen.

Did You Know…?

  • Bee Pollen benefits are given to us by honey bees collecting pollen on their legs and mixing it with specific enzymes that they secrete from their abdomen.
  • Studies have shown that it is possible for a human to live completely on Bee Pollen and water alone.
  • The color of Bee Pollen ranges from light yellow to black depending on the kind of flower the bee was pollinating at the time.
  • Bee Pollen benefits have been recorded in ancient times. In fact, Hippocrates is said to have used Bee Pollen for various ailments.
  • All Bee Pollen is collected by the worker bees who are all female. There are about 30,000 of these female workers per colony. The male bees (about 300 to 500 of them) are called "drones" and do not have stingers or the equipment necessary to make bee pollen. Their sole purpose is to fertilize the Queen bee.
