Bee pollen can be taken by itself or with many other food combinations. You may mix pollen with raw honey, with yogurt, blended in a smoothie, baked in cookies and breads, or any other way you choose. Pollen is easily digested when taken with fruit.
Adults – Start with ½ teaspoon in the morning (1/2 hour before breakfast) followed by some water, juice, or milk. Increase your intake every day by a few grains until reaching 2 teaspoons per day. Adults may consume up to 1 tablespoon daily.
Children – Beginning at 1 ½ years of age, start from 1 pollen grain, increasing by 2-3 grains every few days until reaching ½ teaspoon per day. Children may consume up to 1 teaspoon daily.
Special Note – If you are severely allergic to pollens, bee stings, or are unsure of your allergies, contact your physician for their opinion.
