Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. Our bee pollen may help your arthritis but I don't know how much. I would recommend using royal jelly instead. The research suggests it may help more than bee pollen. I have listed a recent study below regarding arthritis and royal jelly.
Royal Jelly for Arthritis
Arthritis sufferers are going to be very excited about this. Recently a group of really smart guys got together to develop a potential medicine for rheumatoid arthritis. They choose to study a compound in royal jelly called 10-hydroxy-2-decenoic acid. We'll just call it 10H2DA for short though since I can barely pronounce it, let alone spell it.
I won't bore you with the scientific details, but what the researchers found was that the 10H2DA blocked two pro-inflammatory signaling pathways in their study. What does this mean?
Well, it means that these scientists concluded that 10H2DA (the royal jelly compound) may be of potential therapeutic value in inhibiting joint destruction in rheumatoid arthritis.
If you'd like to read the entire study, it can be found in the Journal of Ethnopharmacol, 2010 Feb 3.
