Bee Pollen

How does Bee Pollen work?

The enzymes in bee pollen are thought to act like medicines. However, these enzymes are broken down in the stomach, so it is unlikely that bee pollen has any effect.

Are there safety concerns?

Bee pollen seems to be safe for most people.

It can cause liver damage and allergic reactions including itching, swelling, problems with breathing, dizziness, and death in people allergic to pollen.

Do not take bee pollen if:
  • You are pregnant or breast-feeding.
  • You are allergic to pollen.
