I had never heard of taking bee pollen before, I'll have to try it! The local natural store has raw local honey, do you think that would have enough bee pollen, or should I also start adding it to smoothies?

Man often becomes what he believes himself to be. If I keep on saying to myself that I cannot do a certain thing, it is possible that I may end by really becoming incapable of doing it. On the contrary, if I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning.

You can buy really raw honey at your local whole food store which contains bee pollen naturally. Since we live indoors, we tend to lose that immunity effect against allergies. When consuming bee pollen, some have noticed it helps with outdoor allergies. You can read more testimonies here http://www.reallyrawhoney.com/

Have a great day.

Eating alone will not keep a man well; he must alsoo take exercise. For food and exercise, while possessing opposite qualities, yet work together to produce health... and it is necessary, as it appears, to discern the power of various exercises, both natural exercises and artificial, to know which of them tends to increase the flesh and which to lessen it; and not only this, but also to proportion exercise to bulk of food, to the constitution of the patient, to the age of the individual..."

My husband found the bee pollen in GNC.
I never really thought of the allergy aspect of it. You could ask your dr too.

I am allergic to stings but not to the pollen. I started with a very small dose until I knew.

If you are allergic to bees then definitely don't take it.

I used to take the capsules. They gave me a terrible gut ache after several days... I have heard of this happening to others.
Now, I get the fresh pollen (in the refridgerated section at the health food store). I dissolve mine in a bit of water, then add to a smoothie.
I just use 1/2 tsp. Some people use much more.

I have read that many are adding this to their oatmeal. do you take it and what form is it in? The local GNC doesn't carry it anymore. Are the capsules a good source? Called a local bee farm to see what they have and can tell me, waiting on a call back.

Philippians 3:13

"Sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold if it.

"But this one thing i do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead. I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
