This short bee pollen reference bibliography page will highlight a number of studies that have been done on bee pollen the world over.
It will comprise actual clinical research studies as well as various publications.
Bee pollen was for the longest time used and appreciated by health enthusiasts but no more. Now, researchers as well as those seeking better health have discovered it too.
These studies are illuminating and represent a good snapshot of the amount of bee pollen research that has been conducted and which is ongoing.
For now, please review the various studies and books that discuss various elements of bee pollen.

Looking for a Pharmaceutical-Grade Quality Bee Pollen Supplement?
Bee pollen is truly one of the world’s greatest superfoods or supplements. If you decide to take it, you have two options essentially.
If you prefer buying bee pollen granules instead, look for pollen that is sourced in pristine areas. Some commercial brands of pollen are subjected to air pollution and that is to be avoided.
This one at this page here is a good one that I personally use.
If, however, you decide to go the bee pollen capsule or multi-vitamin route, look for a pharmaceutical-grade quality one, which authenticates purity and bio-availability within your system.
While I use bee pollen granules, I have also been using a bee pollen capsule supplement for 12 years to great effect.
It is sourced in New Zealand in an area that borders one of its largest national parks. There is no commercial industry in that area either.
For more info on the one I use, please click on this bee pollen supplement link here.
I hope this bee pollen reference bibliography web page has been helpful for you.
