Safety of bee pollen and ZXT?
I just recenty started on ZXT gold and because I had some stomach trouble have been taking it sporatically without any results. Just today I heard a rumor that disturbed me but I know how these can start on a product like this. I was told someone died as a result of taking bee pollen and also some were experinceing high blood pressure and hadn't had it before. I hate to be negative and hope these are no more than untruths but felt compelled to ask.......Rick
I have not heard of anyone dying from their intake of bee pollen in my years of working with it. In very rare cases people do have reactions to it but not once have I ever seen or heard of someone dying. I'm sure the statistics support that eating nuts are more dangerous than eating bee pollen.
That being said, the ZXT product you mention does seem to pose greater risk to health. If you scroll through the our forum, you'll see many side effects reported. It is very important to understand however, that ZXT is not a bee pollen product - it is a weight loss product with several other ingredients in it including a diuretic and a laxative. We have received reports of heart palpitations and an increase in blood pressure here by users of the ZXT, among other side effects.
It is also important to note that if one consumes bee pollen on its own, side effects are almost non-existent and bee pollen has a long history of safe use.
If you are worried about possible side effects of ZXT, use pure bee pollen only and avoid the other ingredients found in ZXT.
