Bee pollen is used in naturopathic medicine traditions and as a nutritional supplement. It is sometimes referred to as ambrosia and refers to the flower pollen that collects on the legs and bodies of worker bees. It can also include some nectar and bee saliva and comes from many plants, so the contents of bee pollen can vary significantly and the exact chemical composition depends on the plants the worker bees gather the pollen from. It can even vary in the same apiary, with no two samples of bee pollen exactly identical.
Don’t confuse bee pollen with bee venom, honey, or royal jelly. People take bee pollen for nutrition, as an appetite suppressant, for premature aging, to improve stamina and athletic performance, for certain gastrointestinal problems, among many others. Bee pollen is safe for short term use, but side effects include allergic reaction, shortness of breath, hives, swelling, and anaphylaxis. Bee pollen is not safe for pregnant women and should not be used during breastfeeding.
