 Overview Information

Bee Pollen refers to the flower pollen that collects on the legs and bodies of worker bees. It can also include some nectar and bee saliva. Pollens come from many plants, so the contents of Bee Pollen can vary significantly. Don’t confuse Bee Pollen with bee venom, honey, or royal jelly.

People commonly take Bee Pollen for nutrition. It is also used by mouth as an appetite stimulant, to improve stamina and athletic performance, and for premature aging, but there is no good scientific evidence to support these uses.


 How Does It Work?

Bee Pollen might help stimulate the immune system when taken by mouth or promote wound healing when applied to the skin. However, it’s not clear how Bee Pollen causes these effects. Some people say that the enzymes in Bee Pollen act like medicines. However, these enzymes are broken down in the stomach, so it is unlikely that taking Bee Pollen enzymes by mouth causes these effects.

 : Uses & Effectiveness 

 Possibly Ineffective for:


© Athletic Performance

Research suggests that taking Bee Pollen supplements by mouth does not seem to increase athletic performance in athletes.


 Insufficient Evidence for:


© Breast Cancer-Related Hot Flashes

Early research suggests that taking Bee Pollen along with honey does not relieve breast cancer-related hot flashes or other menopausal-like symptoms in breast cancer patients compared to taking honey alone.


© Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS)

Early research suggests that a specific combination product seems to decrease some symptoms of PMS including irritability, weight gain, and bloating when given over a period of 2 menstrual cycles. This product contains 6 mg of royal jelly, 36 mg of Bee Pollen extract, Bee Pollen, and 120 mg of pistil extract per tablet. It is given as 2 tablets twice daily.

© Premature Aging



© Hay Fever



© Mouth Sores



© Joint Pain

More evidence is needed to rate Bee Pollen for these uses.

 : Side Effects & Safety 

Bee Pollen is POSSIBLY SAFE for most people when taken by mouth for up to 30 days. There is also some evidence that taking two tablets twice daily of a specific combination product that contains 6 mg of royal jelly, 36 mg of Bee Pollen extract, Bee Pollen, and 120 mg of pistil extract per tablet for up to 2 months may be safe.

The biggest safety concerns are allergic reactions. Bee Pollen can cause serious allergic reactions in people who are allergic to pollen.

There have also been rare reports of other serious side effects such as liver and kidney damage or photosensitivity. But it is not known if Bee Pollen or some other factor was truly responsible for these effects. Also, a single case of dizziness has been reported for a person who took Bee Pollen extract, royal jelly, and Bee Pollen plus pistil extract


 Special Precautions & Warnings:


© Pregnancy and Breast-Feeding

Taking Bee Pollen is POSSIBLY UNSAFE during pregnancy. There is some concern that Bee Pollen might stimulate the uterus and threaten the pregnancy. Don’t use it. It’s also best to avoid using Bee Pollen during breast-feeding. Not enough is known about how Bee Pollen might affect the infant.


© Pollen Allergy

Taking Bee Pollen supplements can cause serious allergic reactions in people who are allergic to pollen. Symptoms can include itching, swelling, shortness of breath, light-headedness, and severe whole-body reactions (anaphylaxis).
