Is eating Bee Pollen safe? What r its benefits? Will it help in weight loss?

Safe: Bee pollen is safe but people can have allergic reactions to it. The benefits are minimal and there are no studies showing any help with weight loss. I would save my money and focus on improving your diet and exercise instead!

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.

Better not: If you do have pollen allergies, it might not be a good idea to try it, and it won't help too, whether the antihistaminic would interact with the bee pollen, unlikely. Check this link for more info http://www. Webmd. Com/balance/bee-pollen-benefits-and-side-effects

How can you eat bee pollen or jelly to boost energy?

How can you eat bee pollen or jelly to boost energy?

Honey: Some persons believe that by eating locally collected honey that pollen contained in the honey will help to make them resistant to allergic plants. (desensitize them). Bees collect pollen primarily from flowering plants that require the bee to carry the pollen to other plants; these pollens are not typically airborne and therefore are not the plants that typically cause respiratory allergy.

What is use of tablets containing bee pollen, granular, honey, stearic acid, silica and royal jelly?

Unknown Supplement: This is definitely not a prescribed medication. It has nothing in the ingredients list that would have any medical or health benefit. It is probably one of the thousands of fraudulent products designed by herbal or 'supplement' factories to sell to gullible humans.

Is it ok to take fish oil pills and bee pollen pills together?

I think so: I probably have probably taken both myself as a physician. Of course it is highly unlikely that the combo has ever been formally studied. I am unaware of any reason why one would expect an untoward reaction.

Does taking bee pollen really work for getting rid of allergies, or is it a gimmick?

No: Bee pollen is not helpful to get rid of allergies. Seasonal allergens that cause rhinitis etc are pollens that are wind borne. Bees pollinate flowering plants and these don't cause seasonal allergy.

I'm highly allergic to bees. I have become interested in taking bee pollen weight loss. Would I be able to take even though I'm allergic?

No problem.: If you are allergic to bee stings you are allergic to the venom in the sting. You are not allergic to any other part of the bee including honey. I am not aware of the virtue of bee pollen for weight loss so my answer is not an endorsement of this unusual recommendation. I'm old-fashioned & believe that weight loss is a combination of eating less, exercising more & willpower. It works for me.

I'm eating a lot less since I started taking bee pollen because it doesn't make me hungry. Could that be why I feel dizzy and off everyday?

Dehydrated: Drink plenty of water, 2 liters more a day (8 glasses with 8 more ounces) and see if you do not feel better. Make sure you are eating enough calories to fuel your body through the day with a balanced diet as well. Eat more vegetables and fruits and maybe a multivitamin and see how much better you will feel. It will be amazing. You are most likely just dehydrated. Good luck and feel better!
