Bees are adorable. Raw honey is tasty. Bee pollen is…eh. JK. Bee pollen is great! It just doesn’t taste as good as something like honeyy.
I never used to get allergies but I guess your body changes as you age + sometimes you develop this ish.
I’m not one to run to the local pharmacy + stock up on Claritin or any other allergy relief medicine. I hardly take meds. Not even when I’m in pain. I just had hernia surgery + I refused to take the Norco they prescribed me. Instead I lay in pain. Call me weird but unless I think I’m about to die, I’ll look for a natural alternative + test it out.
I’ve always been told to eat local honey for allergy relief but when I heard about bee pollen, I went for both because what’s the harm in doubling up? You should be able to find these at your local health food market or your local farmer’s market!
I like to throw bee pollen into my scrambled eggs + smoothies in the morning. It helps hide the taste. Sometimes I will mix it with a little coconut oil + throw it onto a piece of ezekial toast. Mixing it into some fresh-sqeezed OJ is pretty NOM too.
I know some knarly people who will just eat it by the spoonful. A spoonful with some fruit is actually the best way to take it if you can. Thanks, but no thanks over hereee.
Whenever I take bee pollen, I’ve noticed my energy levels increase. This prompted me to do a little more research + see what other benefits bee pollen has to offer.
You’ll be shocked at the health benefits that come with eating bee pollen (full details here):
- helps with infertility problems
- high in protein + amino acids
- prostate help for men
- strengthens the cardiovascular system
- helps treat addiction
- immune system booster
- treats everything from asthma to allergies to sinus issues
- aids in digestion
- anti-inflammatory effect on the immune system
- skin soother for eczema or psoriasis
- natural energy enhancer
Looks like I’m gonna keep on keepin’ on with the whole bee pollen thang.
It’s amazing how something so natural can aid in fixing so many different problems. If you take Claritin, you are simply fixing your allergy issues + that is it. But if you’re taking bee pollen, not only are you alleviating your allergies, you are also giving yourself more energy, supporting your heart, boosting your immune system, etc., etc., etc.
BEE POLLEN >>> laboratory made allergy medicines. You take your pick.
+ you’ll be happy to know that bee keepers can remove the pollen from the beehive without disturbing or killing any bees♥
Any other secrets for natural allergy relief? Or ways to eat the bee pollen?
