Bee Pollen Usage

Therapeutic Uses

Bee pollen has been touted as an energy enhancer, and is sometimes used by athletes in the belief that it will enhance performance during competitions. However, there is no real evidence that bee pollen is effective and some evidence that it is not. ^[2] Bee pollen is also commonly taken to try to prevent hay fever on the theory that eating pollens will help you build up resistance to them. When used for this purpose, locally grown bee pollen is usually recommended; however, be aware that it is possible to have a severe allergic reaction to the bee pollen itself. Other proposed uses of bee pollen include combating age-related memory loss ^[5] and other effects of aging, as well as treating respiratory infections, endocrine disorders, and colitis. No scientific evidence supports any of these uses (see Safety Issues ).
