Research on a proprietary rye pollen extract has used 3 to 6 tablets, or 4 capsules, per day.
Where to Find It
Most noncultivated plants produce pollen. Commercial pollen is collected from bees returning to their hives (bee pollen) or may be directly harvested with machines (flower pollen). It is not clear which plants produce the most effective pollens. In addition to rye, other common pollens used are timothy grass, corn, and pine.
Since pollen is not an essential bodily constituent, deficiencies do not occur.
