Subject: Ambrosia Bee Pollen Question
I just recently placed on order with your company. In that order, I had Ambrosia Bee Pollen. The only thing is there are no instructions on how to take it or apply it. So here are my questions:
1) How much should I take per day?
Wayne : We recommend 1-2tbls 1-2 x a day. Bee Pollen is a very powerful, concentrated food, so start with a ½ teaspoon 1x a day and build up from there. We all have our tolerances and sensitivities. Stop immediately if you notice any undesirable side effects. It happens but is rare for someone not to tolerate bee pollen.
2) Should I take it with food or on an empty stomach?
Wayne : I recommend with a large glass of water or fresh squeezed juice, and in fruit shakes as they add dense nutrition and sweetness, yet is low glycemic!
3) Is it something I should chew or just swallow it with water?
Wayne : I recommend chewing it as it is a food and pre-digestion in the mouth with any food increases the nutritional utilization of all the nutrients.
4) Are there any safety precautions I should know about?
(max. dosage, not to mix with certain foods, etc.)
Wayne : Very rare. BUT! Please remember anyone can be allergic or sensitive to any foods or internal substances. Start slowly. if you feel any strange symptoms check with your doctor immediately. I have never done more than 4T in a day and have not heard of anyone overdosing.
5) Your site says it can be used to smooth out wrinkles. Can bee pollen be used on the skin? If yes – then how would I use/prepare it?
Wayne : For topical use on the skin I would recommend adding water and crushing the pollen and making a paste. Apply to the skin for 15-60 minutes.
Please Live Forever Healthy!
