This tiny dipping dot looking ball has close to every nutrients your body needs on the daily. It was probably a couple months ago that I discovered it’s benefits. After doing my research and taking notes. I realized that the benefits were too good to pass on. Are you ready for what i’m about to tell you? Get ready to have your mind blown. I purchased my 10oz bee pollen for $11.25 at Whole Foods. Pricey but think of it this way. It’s all in one bottle. All your vitamins in one.

One thing I do suggest for those of you who are new to bee Pollen,
Take one dot and try it out to see if you feel any allergic reaction. You might not bee allergic to any other bee products but pollen is made differently so it might get ya.
For those of you with any allergies please be careful as well.
Allergic to bees? I wouldn’t risk it. But if you still feel like trying it out. I suggest you ask your doctor first.
