Bee Pollen - Raw and Natural - 6 oz.

Regular price $9.50 Sale

This listing is for a 6 oz. (by weight) bottle of pure, raw bee pollen, in a glass hexagonal jar.

Our pollen is collected straight from the hives in our back yard daily. We harvest every day, and freeze it immediately, to preserve all of the protein, vitamins and minerals. We don't dry our pollen at all, and we don't let it sit at room temperature for days on end. This will result in a slightly moist bee pollen, which makes it easier to put in or spread on food (or to take a spoon full at a time).

Bee pollen will vary in its color, taste and consistency, depending on what the bees collect that day. Some bee pollen will be light green, others will be shades of grey or yellow, and some is even dark purple! The taste will vary from a very sweet, to a bitter taste, depending on the source of the pollen. Each jar is unique, and I can't guarantee one particular jar will be of any specific color, taste, or consistency.

We lightly sort the bee pollen, to remove unwanted items. But, our pollen is raw and unprocessed, so please take that into consideration, as stray materials may make it into the jar. Our pollen is wild collected, meaning it isn't from a particular source. It comes from what the bees think is the best material to gather. If the bees know best, I prefer to leave it that way.

Bee pollen can be taken as a protein source, a vitamin or mineral additive, or as a daily supplement. As I'm not a medical doctor (or pharmacist), please research for your own purposes the health benefits of taking pollen. As some may have allergic reactions to pollen, please consult medical advice if you are uncertain if you'll have a reaction to bee pollen.

While our pollen isn't labratory tested, most bee pollen contains Antioxidants (some research suggests may prevent aging), Proteins, Minerals, Carbohydrates, Enzymes, and Vitamins.

There are many claims to health benefits of taking pollen out there. Some are verified, while others are not. Again, please do your own research to make up your own mind. But, some alleged health benefits to taking pollen as a dietary supplement include:
