Bee Pollen Benefits

ihabs91 posted:
Hi Friends,

I read many articles about the potential benefits of Bee Pollen to Multiple Sclerosis. I created this discussion to hear every-ones inputs and even experiences on this subject. I started taking Bee Pollen not very long ago (Approximately 3 weeks). If the benefits of Bee Pollen to MS are in fact true, Bee Pollen can be a very serious candidate of it possibly being used as medication ?

What do you guys think?

Hello ihabs,

Sounds like a pile of bull pucky to me! By "many" articles do you mean at least 25 or do you mean more like two or three?

Personally, I would be very suspicious about any such claims. But who knows, for you bee pollen may be the best thing to come along since Frog Swirl Ice Cream!

cleaned it with Bactine first, then applied this Organic raw Manuka

Honey and bandaged it. I cleaned it out and redressed my wound twice

A day for a week and wouldn't you know.....it healed with little to no

scarring! I believe in the power of nature and all of the wonders it

holds. I watched my wound heal from the inside out layer by layer. I

Would love to see any results you may have in the future and

appreciate your being:) thanks ihab have an extraordinary day:)
