This bee pollen does not help seasonal allergy sufferers but may have other health benefits. I would recommend seeing your urology md for ed and cpps as it is not related to allergies. ...Read more

Probably: There are rare cases of anaphylaxis from bee pollen. One problem is that the pollen collected by bees are specific for that colony and area.They are mostly from flowering plants they are not the usual allergenic ones which travel in the air . The reaction is usually from cross-sensitivity between a particular pollen and another plant. No evidence bee pollen is effective for allergic diseases. ...Read more

Are the health food store bee pollen meds just a gimmick for treating allergies?

Are the health food store bee pollen meds just a gimmick for treating allergies?

Yes: The pollens that cause allergies are very small, and carried by the wind. Flowers need bees to cross-pollinate, because the pollen is too big and heavy to be carried by the wind. Since they're not airborne, people can't inhale them and react to them. Thus, the pollens found in bee pollen are not the pollens that cause your allergic symptoms. ...Read more
