how to eat pollen
1, eating methods: first, direct consumption, that is, direct consumption of pollen. The method is to pour the dry powder directly into the mouth, and then take it with warm water not higher than 40 ℃. This method may not be used to at first, and can be adapted after several times. This is the most convenient and simple method. In addition, there are pollen capsules, pollen tablets, compound pollen preparations, pollen oral liquid and other processed products, which are also directly edible. Second, mix the pollen and honey (or sugar water) in a ratio of 1:1 ~ 2 to reduce the odor of the original pollen and make it taste good, and then serve it with warm boiled water. Some pollen in porridge is convenient, but the temperature of porridge should not be higher than 40 ℃; Some put in milk, drink with drink, also can dip wine with drink. In addition, according to the literature, the Japanese often use pollen to drink wine, or add it to yogurt or sprinkle it on cold dishes. Nordic restaurants often put pollen on the table to eat freely. In the United States, pollen is mixed with ice cream, milk, egg milk drinks and broth. However, it should be noted that the pollen should not be heated at high temperature. If it is a dry hard lump, it can be soaked in warm boiled water until it is soft or mashed before eating.
2, eating time: practice shows that the best eating time is 15-30 minutes before breakfast, because it is easy to absorb. The treatment dose is large, it is best to take it 2-3 times, the first time before breakfast, the second and third time before lunch or dinner 15-30 minutes, or before going to bed. Children should eat pollen 2-3 times.
3. Consumption cycle: according to the clinical observation at home and abroad, pollen should be consumed for at least 1-2 weeks for treatment. Generally, 15-30 days should be taken as a course of treatment to get better effect, because the effect of pollen diet is relatively slow, and it is impossible to have an immediate effect. Some difficult or chronic diseases even need to last for several months or longer. If it is used as a general way to strengthen one’s health and enhance one’s physical fitness, it is not necessary to strictly follow the above requirements. If it is possible, it can be eaten frequently, but in a smaller amount.
side effects of pollen: pollen is a health product, so I think a small amount of long-term consumption is the best way to eat. Our own immune system is the best defense system. It’s good to eat all kinds of immunity enhancing products properly. Don’t eat in large quantities for a long time. If the immune system is spoiled, there will be a big problem.
after reading the answer to the question about the function and efficacy of pollen in detail, I believe you have a general understanding of pollen. Pollen does have very good medicinal value and beauty value, but you should pay attention to the time when you eat it. The best time to eat it is 15 to 30 minutes before breakfast.
