We use some Bee pollen and it may help us. We do not use bee pollen as suggested I am sure. Dr. Ax gives great insight to Bee pollen. I like and am more in line with Dr. Ax than I am with an IDSA FDA promoted site. Keep in mind Dr. Ax article has my support on this subject. https://draxe.com/bee-pollen/
WebMD reports - ( Is Bee Pollen Safe? https://www.webmd.com/balance/bee-pollen-benefits-and-side-effects )
Bee pollen appears to be safe for most people, at least when taken for a short term. But if you have pollen allergies, you may get more than you bargained for. Bee pollen can cause a serious allergic reaction -- including shortness of breath, hives, swelling, and anaphylaxis.
Bee pollen is not safe for pregnant women. A woman should also avoid using bee pollen if she is breastfeeding.
Bee pollen may cause increased bleeding if taken with certain blood thinners like warfarin. Check with your doctor before taking bee pollen if you take any medications, over-the-counter medicines, or herbals.
I feel WebMD may be a good resource for many things.
Dr. Ax reports - Many manufacturers make bee pollen pills or supplements that claim to help you lose weight fast, but there is little scientific evidence proving this to be true. In fact, the FDA had to recall Zi Xiu Tang bee pollen capsules because they found it contained undeclared sibutramine and phenolphthalein, weight-loss drugs that are no longer used in the U.S. because they may increase the risk of heart attack or stroke.
Thank you for your time. Happy holidays.
