Benefits of Forever Bee Pollen

1. High Antioxidant Content Protects From Free Radicals and Chronic Diseases

Bee pollen is loaded with a wide variety of antioxidants, among them flavonoids, carotenoids, quercetin, kaempferol and glutathione (5Trusted Source).

Antioxidants protect your body against potentially harmful molecules called free radicals. Damage by free radicals is linked to chronic diseases such as cancer and type 2 diabetes (6Trusted Source).

Test-tube, animal and some human studies have shown that bee pollen antioxidants can reduce chronic inflammation, eliminate harmful bacteria, fight infections and combat the growth and spread of tumors (7Trusted Source).

However, bee pollen’s antioxidant content also depends on its plant source (8).

Unless a plant source is specifically stated on the label, it can be difficult to determine where your bee pollen came from.

2. May Lower Heart Disease Risk Factors Like High Blood Lipids and Cholesterol

Heart disease is the leading cause of death worldwide (9).

Both high blood lipids and high blood cholesterol are linked to an increased risk of heart disease. Interestingly, bee pollen may lower these risk factors.

For instance, animal studies have shown that bee pollen extracts can lower blood cholesterol levels, especially “bad” LDL cholesterol (10Trusted Source, 11Trusted Source).

In people with nearsightedness caused by clogged arteries, bee pollen supplements lowered blood cholesterol levels, which increased their field of vision (7Trusted Source).

Additionally, antioxidants in bee pollen may protect lipids from oxidizing. When lipids oxidize they can clump together, restricting blood vessels and raising your heart disease risk (11 Trusted Source).

3. May Boost Liver Function and Protect Your Liver From Toxic Substances

Your liver is a vital organ that breaks down and removes toxins from your blood.

Animal studies have found that bee pollen may enhance its detoxifying abilities.

In older animals, bee pollen boosted the liver’s antioxidant defense and removed more waste products, such as malondialdehyde and urea, from the blood (12).

Other animal studies show that bee pollen antioxidants safeguard the liver against damage from several toxic substances, including drug overdoses. Bee pollen promotes liver healing as well (5 Trusted Source, 13 Trusted Source, 14Trusted Source).

However, few human studies have assessed bee pollen’s effects on liver function. More human studies are needed to establish health recommendations.

4. Packs Several Compounds With Anti-Inflammatory Properties

Bee pollen has been used traditionally to reduce inflammation and swelling.

An animal study showed that bee pollen extract reduced swelling of rats’ paws by 75% (15Trusted Source).

In fact, its anti-inflammatory effects have been compared to several nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, such as phenylbutazone, indomethacin, analgin and naproxen (7Trusted Source).

Bee pollen packs several compounds that can reduce inflammation and swelling, including the antioxidant quercetin, which lowers the production of inflammatory omega-6 fatty acids, such as arachidonic acid (16Trusted Source).

What’s more, plant compounds in bee pollen may suppress biological processes that stimulate the production of inflammatory hormones such as tumor necrosis factor (TNF) (17Trusted Source).

5. May Help You Avoid Illness by Boosting Immunity and Killing Bacteria

Bee pollen may boost your immune system, helping you avoid illnesses and unwanted reactions.

For one, research has shown that it may reduce the severity and onset of allergies.

In one study, bee pollen was shown to significantly reduce the activation of mast cells. Mast cells, when activated, release chemicals that trigger an allergic reaction (18 Trusted Source).

Also, several test-tube studies have confirmed that bee pollen has strong antimicrobial properties.

Bee pollen extract was found to kill potentially harmful bacteria such as E. coli, Salmonella, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, as well as those that cause staph infections (19 Trusted Source, 20Trusted Source).

6. May Aid Wound Healing and Prevent Infections

Bee pollen has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, which may aid your body in wound healing.

For instance, animal research found that bee pollen extract was similarly effective at treating burn wounds as silver sulfadiazine, a gold standard in burn treatment, and caused far fewer side effects (21 Trusted Source).

Another animal study showed that applying a balm containing bee pollen onto a burn significantly accelerated healing over standard medicines (22Trusted Source).

Bee pollen’s antimicrobial properties may also prevent infections, a major risk factor that can compromise the healing process for scrapes, cuts, abrasions and burns (21Trusted Source).

7. May Have Anticancer Properties

Bee pollen may have applications for treating and preventing cancers, which occur when cells proliferate abnormally.

Test-tube studies have found bee pollen extracts to inhibit tumor growth and stimulate apoptosis — the programmed death of cells — in prostate, colon and leukemic cancers (23Trusted Source, 24).

Bee pollen from cistus (Cistus incanus L.) and white willow (Salix alba L.) may have anti-estrogen properties, which could lower the risk of breast, prostate and uterine cancers (25, 26 Trusted Source).However, more human-based research is needed.

8. May Ease Menopausal Symptoms Like Hot Flashes

Menopause, which marks the cessation of menstruation in women, is often accompanied by uncomfortable symptoms such as hot flushes, night sweats, mood changes and sleep disturbances (27Trusted Source).

Studies show that bee pollen may alleviate several menopausal symptoms.

In one study, 71% of women felt that their menopausal symptoms improved while taking bee pollen (27Trusted Source).

In another study, 65% of women taking a pollen supplement experienced fewer hot flashes. These women indicated other health improvements as well, such as better sleep, reduced irritability, less joint pain and improved mood and energy (28Trusted Source).

Moreover, a three-month study showed that women taking bee pollen supplements experienced significantly fewer menopausal symptoms. In addition, these supplements helped lower “bad” LDL cholesterol and raise “good” HDL cholesterol (29 Trusted Source).

9. May Improve Nutrient Utilization, Metabolism and Longevity

Some evidence suggests bee pollen may improve your body’s utilization of nutrients.

For instance, iron-deficient rats absorbed 66% more iron when pollen was added to their diet. This uptick is likely due to the fact that pollen contains vitamin C and bioflavonoids, which boost iron absorption (30).

Additionally, healthy rats fed pollen absorbed more calcium and phosphorus from their diet. Pollen contains high-quality proteins and amino acids that may aid such absorption (30).

Other animal studies have demonstrated that bee pollen may improve muscle growth, speed up the metabolism and promote longevity (3 Trusted Source, 31Trusted Source).

Although animal studies are promising, it’s not clear if humans experience the same benefits.

10. Safe for Most People and Easy to Add to Your Diet

Bee pollen comes in granule or supplement form and is safe for most people.

You can purchase it at health stores or from your local beekeeper.

The granules can be added to your favorite foods such as breakfast or smoothies.

However, people with pollen or bee sting allergies should avoid pollen products, as they may cause symptoms such as itching, swelling, shortness of breath or anaphylaxis (32Trusted Source).

These products may also interact negatively with blood thinners, such as warfarin (33Trusted Source, 34Trusted Source).

Pregnant or lactating women should avoid bee pollen products, as evidence is lacking that they’re completely safe for babies.

Forever Living Bee Pollen Side Effects

Bee pollen is POSSIBLY SAFE for most people when taken by mouth for up to 30 days. The biggest safety concerns are allergic reactions. Bee pollen can cause serious allergic reactions in people who are allergic to pollen.
