Combating Seasonal Allergies
When a bee keeper is actively collecting pollen, they will insert a screen that covers the entrance to the hive, and the bees squeeze their bodies through the small holes of screen to enter the hive, and in doing so, a percentage of the pollen falls off their body and lands into a collection tray. Bee pollen is 40% protein and is considered a superfood! It is also the best natural remedy to alleviate those seasonal allergies. Eating pollen to cure pollen allergies seems counterintuitive, but actually all it does is help your body adapt and become more resilient to the effects of pollen!
Always seek the advice of your physician or other qualified health provider with any questions regarding using bee pollen for your allergies.
