For a kick of energy, add some bee pollen to a daybreak smoothie, or to your morning cereal, yogurt, or oatmeal. It boasts B complex vitamins, folic acid, proteins, lipids, and minerals that provides instant, natural energy. Unlike coffee, which can make cramps for women on their period worse, bee pollen also helps alleviate the pain. Some people actually just add it to their coffee, too. Just beware of potential pollen allergies—always test a bit out first.
