How to take bee pollen for chronic fatigue
(new york city)
I have lupus and suffer with chronic fatigue, I'm at physical therapy 4 days a week. I'm tired and started taking 1 tbs of bee pollen with your orange and banana recipe, which is delicious by the way. I don't like the taste of the bee pollen so this is perfect. Some say it works right away and others say it takes time. How much can I take? 1 tbs isn't working or do I have to get it in my system?
Chronic fatigue is a challenging health issue to deal with and could potentially have many causes including adrenal gland burnout, toxin overload, low iron or other nutrient deficiencies. Fortunately, bee pollen tends to help with all of these issues over time. I would suggest to you to increase your dose of bee pollen over the next month to 2 - 3 tablespoons and give your body time to heal and fix some of the issues. I personally take this same amount mixed in my morning smoothie each day. You may also want to consider adding royal jelly to your diet as there are studies showing its energy enhancing effects. I would also suggest if possible that you work with a Naturopathic Doctor to help with your nutrition and supplements. Chronic fatigue is very treatable with the right guidance.

First time user of bee pollen - fatigue
(Livonia, Michigan )
Hello, I purchased bee pollen granules yesterday and I am allergic to basically nothing and I did the test under my tongue and nothing happened. So I have been taking two tablespoons a day (1 twice a day) and i haven't noticed any energy boost. If anything i feel cloudy and tired. Very tired. Is this a reaction!? I really wanted to take pollen because i workout everyday and want te energy boost.
Does it take time to get the energy?
The energy boost from bee pollen does not come in a stimulant form like coffee or a Red Bull energy drink. It comes from the many nutrients contained in a quality bee pollen including vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants, enzymes and healthy fats. Now, energy is a very complex topic and there could be many reasons why you are feeling foggy. If you are working out regularly you could be slightly overtrained and feeling some adrenal fatigue. Or you could be simply over tired. It could also be a case where you may have some nutrient deficiencies. So, it is difficult to say exactly why you are feeling this fog.
Did the fatigue you are experiencing begin shortly after starting on bee pollen? If so, perhaps consider stopping the bee pollen for a week to observe if your energy returns to normal. Then resume the bee pollen after one to two weeks to see if the fatigue returns. If that is the case, you may be reacting to the bee pollen.
The other possible scenario is that you are experiencing a cleansing reaction due to the bee pollen. This is quite common when high nutrient super foods are introduced into the diet and will pass in time, usually in a week or so.
Hope that helps,
How do I use bee pollen to control my cholesterol and chronic fatigue
My cholesterol overall is 260 and the bad level is 160 how should I take the bee pollen?
I also have lupus and suffer with chronic fatigue, i'm at physical therapy 4 days a week I'm tired and started taking 1 tbs of bee pollen with your orange and banana recipe which is delicious by the way.

There have been no studies done on bee pollen for cholesterol so the exact dose that is effective is not known for everyone. That being said, it has been my experience that for those who do obtain results with their elevated cholesterol tend to take more than a full tablespoon a day AND it often takes one to two months. Try slowly working up to 2 full tablespoons per day.
I highly recommend you consider taking royal jelly as well. I have listed a study below whereby the participants were able to lower their bad cholesterol levels significantly. You would need to use our Royal Jelly Powdered Concentrate in order to obtain the dose used in the study.
A group of researchers in Japan decided to examine the effects of Royal Jelly on blood cholesterol levels in 15 volunteers.
They gave half the volunteers 6 grams of Royal Jelly per day for 4 weeks. Those taking the RJ saw their total cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) decreased significantly compared with those who didn't get the RJ. HDL (the good cholesterol) levels didn't change in either group, nor did triglyceride levels.
So, it appears that Royal Jelly lowers bad cholesterol and total cholesterol while not harming good cholesterol levels. Amazing!
