I’ve been taking bee pollen supplement capsules since 2014, and I personally prefer
the capsules version for many reasons that’d be covered more below.
pollen comes in a few different forms, from tablets to granules to
capsules to creams to lotions. Problem is deciding which is the best?
Quickest answer: whichever you find suits you based on convenience, then health benefit.
Key Information On Bee Pollen Capsules
Bee Pollen Granules:
Ok, quickly you can tell that with the granules version, you have
definitely a bit more flexibility with how you want to take them – toss
them on salads, put them into smoothies, or just take them straight into
your mouth – up to you.
They tend to be straight up pure pollen.
Downsides of bee pollen granules:
you have to soak them up to 12 hours before you consume them, so
that you can absorb at least 80+% of granules benefits.
have a husk
that when unsoaked, the husk prevents your body from absorbing all the
goodness and it just goes through your system (or even when soaked, it
may not be so easily absorbed, depending on your digestive system and
quality of granules)
it has a chalky, granular taste and texture
Bee Pollen Tablets:
Tablets version is a mix between granules and capsules; basically
they’re granules version that is packed into a dense tablet, and it has
the same portability and ease of taking as capsules, but doesn’t contain
the additional synergistic nutrients, amino acids and enzymes that are
added into capsules version.
Bee Pollen Capsules:
With bee pollen capsules, usually high-grade
ones have additional synergistic nutrients, amino acids and enzymes that
are added to them to maximize and enhance pollen’s health benefits.
many cases, absorption can also be increased because of the combination
of other nutrients that are added in by the supplement manufacturer
(based on scientists and biochemists advice of course).
One of the main
reasons why I like the capsules version is because they’re really easy
to take and portable enough to go anywhere with me.
Some people decide to DIY
their own capsules and there are many tools available to do this, but
given my schedule and preference for convenience, I opt for the pre-made
version as it’s the most convenient and easy for me.
I don’t want or
like the hassle of having to soak my granules for 12 hours before I can
take them, and then having to risk my children or myself making a mess
and spilling granules everywhere, or having to endure the chalky taste
or even having to keep thinking of how and what to eat by bee pollen
I just want the bee pollen health benefits, fuss-free and
I’ve been taking Xtend Life Bee Pollen supplements personally since 2014, and I honestly say this: it
has helped me a lot in my life, giving me all the energy, health and
wellness I need to handle my 5 AM to 10 PM days everyday, young
children, family, manage multiple busy physiotherapy clinics, meetings,
investments, readings etc.
To me, it’s one of my favorite and important
supplements that I take every day. Without fail.
Buy your from a GMP-compliant manufacturing facility that has certificate
of analysis (COA) for every batch produced. This certifies product quality.
As most of the bee pollen supplements and products sold in
the world and US comes from China, most of these honeybee bread batches have actually been shown to be
You need to know the source from
where it is coming from.
So in order to obtain the
healthiest and best bee pollen supplement, please make sure the source
is as pristine as possible with the product being produced at
Facilities that are GMP registered comply with the most rigid standards (pharmaceutical/nutraceutical grade) so as to minimize the possibility of
product contaminants as well as providing the best health benefits.
These are the same standards pharmaceutical companies in the United States are required to operate under as
mandated by the FDA.
Heat processing or heat drying bee pollen burns and kills the sensitive enzymes (and most of the health benefits).
This also prevents the bread from becoming oxidized thus maintaining nutritional
potency. (Remember, with most granules or bread, 95% of its nutritional value isn't
even assimilated and this is why.)
Ideally, make sure the bread benefit or product rather does not contain any fillers or additives such as
sucrose (sugar), starch, gluten, silica (sand) or any other artificial colors, dyes, or flavors.

It’s very important to learn about any health product before you start
using it. While the official websites do contain a host of details about
these products, the best source of information on whether a supplement

used the product.
I used to feel like I needed a
nap after work and didn't have the energy to get anything done around
the house or take my little girl outside to play. It was making me
depressed and miserable. After the first few days of taking Xtend Life Bee Pollen supplement I all
the sudden realized I wasn't feeling tired and sluggish anymore.

4 Stars - The power it helps to gives me is fantastic considering my age
Diana, Australia on Mar 09, 2016
As for the Natural Energy bee
pollen product, when I have to do manual labour in the garden I take
this product the day before, in the middle of the day.
The staying power
it helps to give me is fantastic considering my age (70!).
5 Stars - I will probably never stop taking it!
Doreen on Jan 11, 2017
I have been taking
Xtend Life's Natural Energy Bee Pollen for one year now, and will
probably never stop taking it. It was recommended to me by my doctor to
help with my overall well-being. Strangely, I found this product to
really help me with hot flashes and I think it helps me sleep better at
night as well. I can honestly tell a difference when I miss taking it.
highly recommend Natural Energy Bee Pollen from Xtendlife!! I won't buy
it here in the USA as I don't think the quality is as good.
It is a
definite 5 stars!
Because when I miss taking it (which I do not miss
any doses any more) the hot flashes come back. I do like taking the bee
pollen a lot!
