THE PERFECT FOOD -- very informative article, worth a read .ttp://www.alternativescentral.com/beepollen.htm 

--Typical Preparations: Typically taken in capsule form, up to 10 tablets a day of up to 500 milligrams each, as an extract, or it may be administered directly (by the spoonful with a big drink of water), or sprinkled on food. Extracts of bee pollen are used in some skin care products.  The antioxidants in bee pollen are compounds chemists called flavonoids. Bee pollen packs the punch of myricetin, quercetin, rutin, and trans-cinnamic acid. You don't need to remember their names, but here's what they can do for you. Myricetin helps white blood cells soak up the "bad" LDL cholesterol out of the bloodstream. Quercetin is a natural antihistamine"the right kind of pollen can be beneficial for your allergies. Rutin is best known as the remedy for varicose veins. Rutin protects veins throughout the body and may help prevent cancer as well. Your body uses trans-cinnamic acid to make its own antibiotics, and this potent nutrient also powers the detoxifying processes of the liver. Another key fact about bee pollen is that it is a source of complete nutrition. Bee pollen is richer in protein than any flesh-based food. Gram for gram, bee pollen supplements contain more amino acids than fish, beef, or eggs.  Precautions:  Since the anti-allergy effect of bee pollen is probably due to quercetin than to the particular plants the bees harvested, it is not necessary to use a locally collected bee pollen (or honey).  Avoid bee  pollen if you have severe allergies to ANY pollen.
