    Bee Pollen
What is it?  What does it do for us?
      Worker bees in the spring have much to do in this area.  As long as the weather permits, each bee will bring in much nectar and pollen from flowering plants.
    
     Bee pollen is loaded with many vitamins and nutrients and is excellent for human consumption.    Interestingly enough, there are very few people who are allergic to this wonderful "gift" of honey bees.   It can cause the same reaction as allergies do. 
    
    
       It is very important that the bee pollen fresh from the hive remain refrigerated for freshness.   In our area of Santa Cruz county, if you take bee pollen that was gathered by honey bees here, you should notice a difference in your allergic symptoms.     Many claim their allergies are not as severe.  Some claim they don't suffer allergies any more!    Some people who cannot tolerate bee pollen will benefit just the same by eating our wildflower honey, daily,
2 tablespoons any way you like it.   Some just don't believe that.  But it is the truth!  
     The bottom-line is that, as with any holistic approach to health, eating bee pollen or honey on a regular basis takes some time.  But, many customers have noticed benefits within one week!
