The Health Benefits Of Bee Pollen

Some potential health benefits include:

  • Reduced inflammation. Bee pollen, the result of much hard work on the part of honey bees, has anti-inflammatory properties that have been compared to drugs including naproxen, according to several 2010 studies.
  • Protection against oxidative stress. The antioxidants can help stop free radical activity, making the supplement a perfect option for healthier skin.
  • A boost to the immune system. According to a 2014 study appearing in the journal Food and Chemistry Toxicology, bee pollen has antimicrobial properties that can kill off bacteria including candida and staphylococcus.
  • Fewer side effects from allergens. According to a 2008 study from Japan, bee pollen may inhibit the activation of mast cells, which play a role in allergic reactions.
  • Faster recovery after exercise. Because it has protein that can be quickly used, taking bee pollen shortly after a workout can help provide essential fuel for not only strengthening muscles, but also rebuilding damaged tissue, leading to a speedier recovery.

Bee pollen, can be used in a variety of ways in granular form, either added to yogurt, tossed into smoothies or sprinkled over cereal. Capsules also offer the same great health benefits.
