How to Use Bee Pollen

Bee pollen can be added to juices, smoothies, or even eaten plain. However, the taste is one that takes some getting used to. It is best to start out with one teaspoon and increase from there. The easiest way to ingest bee pollen, in my opinion, is to encapsulate it.

You can use this capsule machine. Don’t forget to grab extra capsules, they go fast! Start with one pill each day. Or you can add Bee Pollen to your favorite smoothie! Here is a simple recipe that you can make at home.

Bee Pollen Smoothie Recipe from RawFoodRecipes
Ingredients:

1 cup coconut milk
1 cup frozen blueberries
1 date (optional)
1 frozen banana, cut up
1 tsp. bee pollen

Directions:

Put everything in a blender, serve immediately. I like to drink mine over ice, even though it is a smoothie, I think it tastes better when it’s REALLY cold.

Tip: You want to make sure the bee pollen stays refrigerated if possible. If it heats above 100 degrees, some of the pollen’s enzymes and vitamin C content will be destroyed.

Benefits of Bee Pollen

“Early Egyptian and Chinese civilizations both recognized its power and used it in the treatment of many ailments. Hippocrates, a Greek doctor known as the father of western medicine, used bee pollen to heal people more than 2,500 years ago. In the 21st century, it is referred to by health practitioners as the fountain of youth. Many believe it can be used for everything, from losing weight to avoiding cancer.” — Source

Increases energy levels. Bee pollen rejuvenates your entire body. It stimulates vital organ function, and can even enhance athletic performance. Bee pollen is a high-energy whole food that supplies us with almost every nutrient the human body needs to survive.

Builds muscle. Along with increasing energy, bee pollen can also help build muscle. It boosts your immune capabilities, and contains a high amount of antioxidants.

Cures allergies. While there are studies still being conducte on this point, I’ve had friends personally experience their allergies improving after taking bee pollen regularly for a few weeks. Always talk to your physician before trying to improve allergies on your own, but it’s worth asking about.

Enhances weight loss. Bee pollen is a natural appetite suppressant, and can increase metabolism which in turn increases the amount of calories you burn. Loaded with enzymes, it also helps promote digestion. Get things moving, in more ways than one, and the pounds melt off! Add it to a breakfast smoothie to get you going in the morning.

Fights depression. Russian researchers report bee pollen has given good results in the treatment of depression. (Source)

  1. You can find bee pollen at any Wal-Mart in the vitamin section. Bee pollen also aids the body to resist heat stress. However one of the easiest ways to ingest bee pollen is honey. But you will need to find a local farmers market for the honey. Store bought honey will not have the same results. The reason is because the local honey will be made from the pollen stream you live in; versus store bought honey that comes from who knows where. About one teaspoon a day will eventually give you results to counter act most allergies. However do not have false expectations; it will not cure you overnight. Results will vary person to person.
