(Las Vegas, NV)
I took bee pollen in the '70's and was recently reminded by my 35 year old son since I was experiencing allergies in Las Vegas that maybe I should start taking it again. He lives on the East Coast and takes bee pollen from that region. I purchased some desert bee pollen from a very reputable local health food store and am feeling less allergy symptoms.
My question is: for purposes of my personal allergy why would I want to buy bee pollen from "North America"?
If you are using a local bee pollen and getting results, I would recommend that you continue using that brand. I'm always hesitant recommending people switch brands (even to ours!) when they are getting results using a quality product. I recommend North American sourced bee pollen for North Americans as it is very difficult to obtain truly 'local' bee pollen for the large majority of people. Few of us know of or even have a local pollen producer and some areas are not even able to produce bee pollen due to certain climate characteristics. So, the next best thing for most is to use a pollen from their country or continent. The reason I suggest this is because you want your bee pollen to expose you too as many of the same pollens that are causing your allergies in order to obtain the best effect. It would not be in your best interest to use an Asian sourced pollen when you live in Las Vegas. And vice versa.
