Who could know the health benefits of bee pollen better than a bee? When bees help themselves to nectar so they can make honey, they coat their legs with pollen in the process. This bee pollen is collected when they return to the hive where they have to pass through a screen to get back into the hive. This screen gently scraps the pollen of their legs as they pass through it and it will then drop into a collection tray for our use. Bee pollen has a long and storied past throughout human history. Hippocrates and Pythagoras both prescribed bee pollen for its healing properties. Native Americans wore pouches containing pollen around their necks on long journeys to eat so they could sustain a high level of energy. The Chinese, Romans, and Egyptians all regarded pollen as a panacea. In China, pollen was first described well over 2000 years ago as sweet tasting and neutral, having diuretic, hemostatic, and stasis-dispersing properties. Later it was used to treat bleeding of various kinds, as well as abdominal pain, painful urination, and mouth sores. To this day, China is still the world's major producer of pollen followed by the United States. If you intend to use your Bee pollen within a few weeks of purchase refrigeration is not necessary, but if you intend to store it for periods in excess of 1 month, we recommend refrigeration.


Precautions

Since the anti-allergy effect of bee pollen is probably due to quercetin than to the particular plants the bees harvested, it is not necessary to use a locally collected bee pollen (or honey). If you have severe allergies to ANY pollen, avoid bee pollen.
