Description: Bee pollen is the pollen produced by flowering plants, which clings to bees as they gather nectar. Bee pollen contains many vitamin and minerals, as well as flavonoids such as rutin and quercitin. It is thought that the minute amounts of pollens desensitize a person for the same pollen allergies.


  • Allergies (mainly, hay fever)
  • Arthritis
  • Fatigue
  • Immune support

Precautions: People who are allergic to bee stings should avoid bee pollen. To make sure you are not allergic to a bee pollen product, try a minute amount first on the skin or the tip of the tongue before beginning a regular dosage.

Dosage: Take 500 to 1,000 mg daily.
