    Default Is bee pollen safe to take?

    I have read about the many health benefits of taking bee pollen capsules. Does anyone know if it is safe to take while breastfeeding? Tia

    There's a thread on bee pollen on the InfantRisk Forums with a response from Dr. Hale. Basically, he says that it's probably not a major risk factor when taken by the mother, but he still doesn't advise it in the first year since there's no research on it, and bee pollen can be contaminated by botulism spores and other bacteria.
