I have been reading some amazing health benefits of Bee Pollen recently. It is considered to be highly rich in protein, vitamins, folic acid etc. Have you tried it?

Yes, I have some in the fridge! It's not particularly appetising .....
Does it help with allergies in any way ? I read it helps get rid of cold and other symptoms.

There are no allergies in the house so I can't say, sorry!

Oh wow!
I haven't but guess who's going to give it a try!
I'm confused. I thought pollen was produced by flowers and just collected by bees, not actually made by bees. And aren't some people allergic to it?
Very cursory search (Wikipedia) says that it is indeed gathered by the bees, not made by them as such so the article in the link is a bit misleading. The composition of the pollen depends on what plants the bee has gathered it from so it's pretty dodgy to make claims about the precentage of proteins, amino acids etc. it contains when that will vary wildly from batch to batch. Also there's no scientific evidence for the health benefits and it's not safe for pregnant or breastfeeding women. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bee_pollen

here's a better source http://www.sciencebasedmedicine.org/bee-pollen-supplements-not-safe-or-effective/
Thanks Jennifer.

No I have not tried it but it doesn't sound appertising.
No I haven't tried it, and really have no desire to after one comment!

Where would you buy it anyway -have not hear of it.
