Boost Your Overall Health With Natural Bee Pollen - A Complete Superfood!

Spring is here! And that means beautiful flowers, warmer weather… runny noses, itchy eyes, and sneezing. So much sneezing! There’s no easy way to put it, Spring can sometimes make life difficult for allergy sufferers. While there are various over-the-counter and prescription medications to alleviate these symptoms, there is also a natural solution that many people turn to: Elias Honey’s Natural Bee Pollen. 

Sourced locally, this Made In Canada product comes from bee hives, which are located in the Pacific Northwest and in Canada’s Prairies - the most prime areas for keeping bees and harvesting honey. 

By consuming local pure bee pollen, you may be able to build up immunity to the specific pollen that triggers your allergies. According to a study published in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology, consuming honey and bee pollen can help alleviate allergy symptoms. The study found that consuming a small amount of honey and bee pollen every day for six weeks can significantly reduce the symptoms of seasonal allergies. Another study published in the International Archives of Allergy and Immunology found that consuming bee pollen extract can reduce the severity of allergy symptoms. In short, we love that this super simple, crunchy little cluster can provide relief from all that sneezing!

Pollen is great for allergy relief, but it’s also one of nature’s complete superfoods! Read on to discover more… 

In addition to helping with seasonal allergies, pure bee pollen also offers various health benefits. Bee pollen is a rich source of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. It can help boost the immune system, improve digestion, and promote healthy skin. It is also a great source of protein and can help increase energy levels.
