@SarahGen-- Actually, I heard that it's better to start out with a very small amount of bee pollen initially and then increase the dosage over time.
The advantage to this is that, one, if someone has an unknown allergy, he or she will avoid very serious side effects because they ingested a small amount. Secondly, some people experience digestive upset from bee pollen. These potential side effects will also be reduced since the body will have more time to adjust to the supplement.
So It's probably best to start with a quarter teaspoon and slowly increase that to one teaspoon over a period of a few weeks to one month.
