Bee Pollen

Bee pollen.

This section features an exploration of the uses and claimed benefits of bee pollen. Are they real, or is it just hype?

In order to find an answer, the scientific evidence is taken into account along with nutritional data. However, new research reports are gratefully received.

The aim of the information below, is not to bombard, but to provide an outline of some key findings that is fair and reasonable.

For example, in looking at nutritional data, how does it compare with ordinary, every day foods: such as an apple, or kale.

Why look at it in this way?

Quite simply, because it is sold as a supplement, and therefore the question:

"Is it worth spending my money on it?" may be on your lips.

You have to decide yourself whether to go ahead, or leave it - and certainly it's fair to say that different sources of information have contrasting views on the benefits of bee pollen to human health, nutrition and weight loss.

Whatever you decide, I hope you find the information below useful.

Health Benefits
A number of claims are made about health benefits, from reports about effects upon eye sight, to improved athletic performance and anti-aging properties. Take a look as some summaries of the evidence.

Bee Pollen Nutrition
To provide a balanced view of the nutritional content of bee pollen, here I compare it with equivalent weight of raw apple or boiled kale. 

Use In Weight Loss
An investigation made into the claims about its uses as a weight loss aid, and a nutritional support to those on a weight loss program.

If you are going to take it, do look out for these side effects. Some side effects are not at all serious, but be aware of those which are potentially more dangerous.
