experience longer life. Why not take both bee pollen and royal jelly together. There is a special bee supplement from New Zealand
that included royal jelly in its composition to booster more health benefits than any
other bee supplements can.
Take a medium-sized banana, two slices of melon, a slice of mango, a tablespoon of flax seeds, half a teaspoon of lemon juice,
and a quarter cup of orange juice. Combine all the ingredients and blend till smooth.
Then take two 800-mg capsules of bee pollen, open the capsule and pour the powder into the mix. Blend well and serve cold. You
can make the shake creamier by replacing the orange juice with milk, or you can give it a boost of protein by adding an egg yolk.
If you are using pollen granules, then you need to blend the granules together with the other ingredients. This recipe brought to you by:
