Bee pollen, featured in our Bee's Knees cocktail, has been touted for years by herbalists as an exceptionally nutritious food. Bee pollen consists of pollen that has been packed by worker honeybees into granules called pollen balls, with added honey or nectar. Rich in vitamins, minerals, and protein, bee pollen can be found in many dietary supplements, and is recommended for asthma, allergies, health maintenance, or stomach problems. It is also recommended by some herbalists to enhance athletic performance, reduce side effects of chemotherapy, and improve allergies and asthma.
