Allergies are more common than most people imagine. The American Academy of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology estimates that over 50 million Americans suffer from some allergy. While research is still ongoing in the development of new drugs, there’s a remedy with proven track records that only a few people know about its importance. And what’s that cure for allergies? The answer is fresh bee pollen.

What is fresh bee pollen

Bee pollen is a holistic solution that is used all over the world. It is made by bees and is the food of young bees. This food is considered one of the most nutritious in nature because it contains almost all the nutrients that humans need.

Fresh bee pollen is an excellent food that contains many essential nutrients and protein that most animal products do not possess. Research shows that fresh bee pollen is more abundant in protein than any other animal source. It is highly abundant in amino acids than cheese, beef or eggs of equal weight.

Bee pollen is the most sumptuous food with a complete source of naturally occurring minerals, vitamins, enzymes, and amino acids.

It contains:

  • All vital trace elements
  • Important minerals such as Potassium, Magnesium and Calcium
  • 35% protein content
  • Vitamins A, B, C and E
  • Vitamin is also readily available which keeps the joints safe
  • Carotenoids, flavonoids and phytosterols
  • It also contains enzymes, bioflavonoids, growth hormones and rutin.

How Does Bee Pollen Cure Allergies?

An allergy occurs when your body suddenly develops an immune response to an allergen, thereby creating useful antibodies. These vital antibodies then activate some necessary receptors in your cells to release a high dose of histamine, resulting in an allergic reaction (runny nose, skin rash, puffy eyes, etc.). The primary function of bee pollen is to reduce the level of histamine released by your body, which is the same job over-the-counter medications perform. Bee pollens are also helpful for a wide range of respiratory problems, ranging from asthma to chronic infections.

How to Choose the Right Fresh Bee Pollen Product

It is essential that you buy bee pollen products from a local dealer to ensure that you buildup an immunity to plants in your environment.

If you don’t trust the suppliers in your area to provide high-quality bee pollen, you can do a thorough research to find a supplier with excellent reputation for pure products and one that is trusted to supply bee pollen with a wide range of plant components.

Ask your farmer or look for a label that indicates that it is mold and pesticide free. You should also try to get bee pollen with different colors to ensure they are sourced from various plants, which increases the pollen’s nutrients.

While bee pollen often come in pill or powder form, it’s ideal to consume the actual granules that bees produce. The pellets have a unique sweet taste and powdery texture that can be effectively used in smoothies, yogurt, in oatmeal, or simply combined with granola. It is also necessary to know that bees make all kinds of products like royal jelly and propolis for treating skin problems.

How to Use Fresh Bee Pollen to Treat Allergies

Take a Test Dose

Before consuming large quantities of bee pollen, it is crucial that you first take them in small quantities to see your body’s reaction to it. You can simply start with a tablespoon of the pollen, then wait for 24 hours to be sure of no adverse side effects.

Another good way you can do a test dose is by taking single bee pellet daily, increase the quantity to assess your reactions or tolerance.

Adverse reactions range from anaphylactic reactions and severe asthma attacks to mild skin rashes. It is necessary to know that severe asthma attacks and anaphylactic reactions can be deadly, so be very careful when consuming pollen and also let your doctor know about any reactions that occur.

Integrate Fresh Bee Pollen Slowly into your Diet

If you do not experience any adverse effects after 24 hours of consuming bee pollen, you can gradually add the pollen product into your diet. It is recommended that you gradually increase the amount of bee pollen you consume each day. Start gradually with a daily dose of ½ to three tablespoons of bee pollen. Most people add bee pollens to their breakfast or their smoothie recipe. Whichever one works for you, do not hesitate to continue that way.

Begin a Month Earlier

To get the maximum benefits of bee pollen, it is ideal to start consuming fresh bee pollen a month before the allergies usually begin. So, in essence, you should continue taking bee pollen throughout the allergy period to help reduce it drastically.

If you have fall allergies, ensure you buy bee pollens that were harvested during the fall season. Also, if you have spring allergies, ensure you buy bee pollen obtained during spring season.
