It is considered one of nature’s most nourishing foods. It caontains nearly all nutrients required by humans. It aids in digestion. Bee pollen is also believed to reduce stress and ti increase stamina and alertness.Got allergies? Bee pollen has long been known as a natural remedy. Simply eat a few granules each day to build up a tolerance, increasing the amount over time.Harry, however, recommends bee pollen for more energy. He says that ounce for ounce, bee pollen is higher in protein than meat. He suggests customers undertake the following test: Consume a teaspoon a day for seven days and see whether your energy level isn’t completely transformed.Ok, now on to the giveaway!
