Bee pollen causing gas

by susie

Hi, what is with the gas issue from taking these. I love the energy but not the gas...

Angela's comments:

The reason you have gas from the bee pollen is because it is fermenting in your digestive tract. This is caused either by lack of enzymes, the inability to break down the shell of the bee pollen or an intolerance to the pollens.

A few things you can try to enhance digestion of the bee pollen are:

1. Try soaking your pollen in water overnight to help break the shell down and make it much easier to digest.

2. Take digestive enzymes when you consume bee pollen

3. Chew it longer (for example, 20 full chews for each mouthfull) or blend it to help break it down.

Hope that helps.

I started about 2 weeks ago. I'll soak it and see if it works.

Wow! Never knew it would cause gas
by: Anonymous

Decided to add bee pollen to my smoothie for the first time. I had no idea that it would cause me to have such a bloated feeling along with excessive gas. Not worth this feeling!

Gas and stool
by: Anonymous

Eating bee pollen made me very gassy from both ends. It also triggerred a lot of premature bowel movements. Seems like my body wanted to get it out right away. I’ve proved this on three occasions now. It was not worth it.

Bee Pollen experience
by: Mary

I've never took Bee Pollen and decided to try it. I put a small amount in my VitaMix smoothie. I developed horrible gas for a couple hours in the night. I had not eaten much or anything unusual. So I did a search and found this information. It was a relief in a way, but I don't think I will try it again. I really have good energy and would rather a a good nights sleep and not be passing amazing gas!

gas/bee pollen
by: Healthy 1

HI- I have healthy digestion and added bee pollen- 1/3 teaspoon to my yogurt yesterday and had shocking gas pain. It was the only new thing in my diet and the pain was so bad that I almost went to the ER.

Today I am feeling better but I do think this is a fairly common occurrence for new users of bee pollen. I was even warned by the person who sold it to me that it can cause bloating and gas. That said, I am not giving up on bee pollen just yet since I know it is supposed to be fantastic for allergies which I developed when I moved to the mid south.

Good luck and good health:)
