Our Pollen is 100% Australian Produced and is Non-Irradiated.
It takes one bee working 8-10 hours per day for a month to produce a teaspoon dose of bee pollen. It comes from the pollen that collects on the hind legs of bees and is said to consist of almost all of the nutrients needed by humans which makes it one of nature’s most completely nourishing foods. It is very high in protein and also contains vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates, lipids and antioxidants.
So, what are the health benefits?
The list of possible health benefits to the consumption of bee pollen is rather long; however, it comes with a warning label and a very real risk of anaphylaxis if you have an allergy to pollen. Its use is also unsafe for pregnant women, should not be used by women who are breastfeeding, and can also cause increased bleeding if used with certain blood thinners.
It's important to keep in mind that bee pollen should not be confused with natural honey, honey comb and royal jelly.
Bee pollen is a complete protein and contains all 22 elements of the human system including:

Firstly if you haven’t taken Bee Pollen before you should start off with a 1/4 (2.5gm) of the daily recommendation ( 10 gm is the recommendation daily dose) you should be on the 1/4 strength dose for 2 weeks before increasing the dose to half (5gm) for 2 weeks, then to 7.5gm for 2 weeks and finally to 10gm the full daily dose. Some people may be allergic to Bee Pollen and this is the reason to start off with small amounts and work up to the full amount.
