    Looking for your thoughts on Bee Pollen. Done some research on my own and I seem to get mixed results as to whether this is a helpful supplement. Anyone have any experience with UNPROCESSED, NATURAL BEE POLLEN GRANULES?

    Thinking about placing an order for something similar to this. Maybe mixing a few spoonfulls in my shakes or on my oatmeal, etc.

    CC Pollen

    Thanks

    Bee pollen and Royal jelly are both a waste of cash , give me the money instead.

    you would probably be better of spending your money on a prostate massage.

    Since when have bees produced pollen?
    This shakes the entirety of biology.

    I remember reading that bee propolis was good for your immune system, and that it was showing promise in clinical studies as an enamel hardener. Can anyone elaborate on, or dispel that?

    Bees don't make pollen- flowers do.

    When bees collect pollen from flowers they form a ball with it and carry it with them until they can't carry any more then take it back to the hive as food. I've seen lots of bees with big balls flying around. hehe.

    Go to pubmed and perform a search with keywords such as "bee pollen human", "bee pollen nutrition", "bee pollen health" etc. If you find any interesting studies, please link them here.

    Any claims beyond what you'd find in scientific studies is likely anecdotally based.

    My 10-year-old son bought some at our local farmer's market a couple weeks ago because he's into trying new weird foods he's never had before.

    It tastes just like honey. He didn't like the texture of it.

    I like the taste of it in my post-workout shakes. But I wouldn't buy it specifically for any certain health benefits.
