What Are Allergies?

If you are bothered by allergy symptoms, you are not alone. In the Pacific Northwest, even seasonal allergies can occur during much of the year: February-April for trees; May-September for grass; and May-October for weeds. In addition, allergies to dust mites, mold and animal dander usually bother people throughout the year.

What are allergies?
Allergies represent an unwarranted response by our immune system to generally harmless foreign substances called allergens. When people have allergies, their immune system releases chemicals, such as histamines, to fight off the allergens. Interestingly, it is the presence of these histamines rather than the allergens that produces most allergy symptoms.

Studies have shown that the consumption of bee pollen has helped many sufferers of allergies and hay fever to control their symptoms due to the presence of Quercetin in the pollen inhibiting the release of histamine in the body resulting in decreased hay fever and allergic responses. In one study (Middleton, 1981) 73% of hay fever patients averaged a 75% improvement when given bee pollen orally.

Nature Bee Potentiated Bee Pollen is much more bioavailable than regular store bought pollen and is a great way to go through the allergy season without trouble.

About the author
New Zealand based Nature Bee was born in 1997 when Jeff and Ben Cook joined forces. The father / son team discovered a special process developed by Canterbury University, still considered to be ground breaking today, that unlocks the nutrients of bee pollen, making it far more digestible than normal bee pollen. This proprietary process was later to be named the ‘potentiation process' and is continually used only by Nature Bee on their New Zealand bee pollen. Nature Bee is now available in almost every country in the world.
