Barley Grass and Bee Products

Barley Grass

Barley grass contains small amounts of calcium, iron, all the essential amino acids, chlorophyll, flavonoids, vitamin B12, vitamin C, and many minerals, plus enzymes.

This food heals stomach, duodenal, and colon disorders, as well as pancreatitis, and is an effective anti-inflammatory.

Bee Pollen

Bee pollen is a powder-like material produced by the anthers of flowering plants and gathered by bees.

It’s made up of 10-15% protein and also contains B-complex vitamins, vitamin C, essential fatty acids, enzymes, carotene, calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, potassium, manganese, sodium, plant sterols, and simple sugars.

Like other bee products, bee pollen has an antimicrobial effect.

In addition, it’s useful for fighting fatigue, depression, cancer, and colon disorders.

It’s also helpful for people with allergies because it strengthens your immune system.

It’s best to obtain bee pollen from a local source, because this increases its anti-allergenic properties.

Fresh bee pollen shouldn’t cling together or form clumps, and it should be sold in a tightly sealed container.

Some people (about 0.05% of the population) may be allergic to bee pollen.

It’s best to try taking a small amount at first and watch for a developing rash, wheezing, discomfort, or any other signs of a reaction.

If symptoms occur, discontinue taking bee pollen.

Bee Propolis

Bee propolis is a resinous substance collected from various plants by bees.

Bees use propolis, together with beeswax, to make their hives.

As a supplement, it’s an excellent aid against bacterial infections.

Bee propolis is believed to stimulate the process of white blood cells destroying bacteria.

Propolis is beneficial as a salve for abrasions and bruises because of its antibacterial effect.

Good results have been reported on the use of propolis against inflammation of the mucous membranes of your mouth and throat, dry cough and throat, bad breath, tonsillitis, ulcers, and acne, and for the stimulation of your immune system.

Be sure any bee products you use smell and taste fresh.

All bee products should be in tightly sealed containers.

It’s best to buy these products from a manufacturer who specializes in bee products.

If you’re using bee products for allergies, it’s best to buy products produced within a 10-mile radius of your home.

This way, you get a very small dose of pollen to desensitize you to the local pollen in your area.
