I wanted to try bee pollen after reading about the numerous benefits that it provides. Within a week of taking it, my allergies lessened, I noticed that I had more energy and my skin (which is prone to acne breakouts) seemed a bit clearer. I stopped taking the bee pollen for a week and noticed a huge difference in all of those things listed above. It has been called a "super food" and I would agree with that. I have seen numerous benefits from taking this particular brand. If you're allergic to bees, you may want to steer clear of it, though, as it may sometimes contain bee saliva.
